Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah at

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

the beginning the name of unlawful Praise and Glory be to Allah and may spiders peace and blessings be upon His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his family and his companions. And all those who trade his path, we asked him to teach us that which will benefit us and benefit us with that which he teaches us and to increase us in knowledge among them.

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

We welcome everyone back to the study and their reflections on Sora to get the 18th Surah of the Quran.

00:00:48--> 00:00:54

And this is season two, for the second of the four stories in suitable

00:00:55--> 00:01:15

for a quick refresh. So what if we said, is comprised mainly of four stories, basically, with some commentary between them. And surah. CommCare is very much about the trials of life, the different types of trials made major trials people will face in their lives, if it's a.

00:01:17--> 00:01:19

And it was called surah. To care.

00:01:21--> 00:01:37

This the Surah, the chapter on the cave, because the story of the trial of the young men in the cave was the toughest of the four trials. It involves the greatest sacrifice the greatest challenge, as we discussed in in those respective episodes.

00:01:38--> 00:01:50

And then it moves on to the story of you will begin in these next few nights in sha Allah, the story of the owner of the two gardens, and then it will move on to the story of Musa alayhis salam and a hadith.

00:01:51--> 00:01:59

And then it will move on ultimately or finally to the story of the Buddha taught me the great powerful, righteous King book for me.

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

And also from a high level here. There is something worth noting, though Allah azza wa jal knows best, you know, the, the wisdom here. The boys in the cave had knowledge of God and faith in him, right, but they had no power, they were persecuted.

00:02:20--> 00:02:28

And at the very end, the fourth story was a man Volker name, who had knowledge of God and great power.

00:02:29--> 00:03:10

So the tables are like, totally turned right. And then in the middle, the story of the owner of the two gardens and the men debates him, This man had great knowledge of God who was not really overpowered. But he's didn't have power, he certainly didn't have the upper hand in the worldly sense. And then the third story is the story of Musa alayhis salam would have had the most isolated had power, he was the leader, but it was right at the time. And he had great knowledge, but Allah wanted to tell him that knowledge is incomplete and it is the greatest gift and you you will never stop learning and only Allah has all knowledge. And so it seems as if in the middle there, those two

00:03:10--> 00:03:11

stories of

00:03:12--> 00:03:26

the dynamics between knowledge and power are there after beginning with the boys in the cave, having the knowledge of Allah and faith in him but no power and ending with someone who is of the faithful that has dominance in this world.

00:03:28--> 00:03:28


00:03:30--> 00:04:19

and Allah azza wa jal knows best that's in terms of a high level of the stories. The very last intro I want to say is, what were the most recent is the commentary on the first story, we had the voice in the cave, then we had some ads about the outcomes of the believers and the disbelievers. The description, the graphic description of the torment of the hellfire and then the description of the believers and Jana adds the array of luxury and comfort and delights on what will give them agenda right right after Allah describes Jana and the believers and what they're going to get in Jana right there the very next verse, here we go this is the segue the people that assume that Jenna only

00:04:19--> 00:04:33

exists on earth or can possibly exist on Earth or that the true permanent worthwhile Jenna is attainable here and they get diluted because of that that's what this second story is about just as the build up and to show you the connection

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

this seemed why the quote unquote gender of this world so why so it just says what grade the level masala and strike for them or site for them. Mohamed Salah Allah yourself from the example of two men are Julie Jarrell Nalli a hottie Hema Jannetty we granted we afforded one of them to gardens

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

That means other than the death. By contrast, Freitas is brief. It's eloquent right? Two men, only one of them had these two gardens. genitalium in an era of grapes, grape vines filled with grape vines.

00:05:15--> 00:05:22

What has never been awful. And these gardens each of them was surrounded by palm trees,

00:05:23--> 00:05:31

which I've never been at home as I needed between these two gardens and all these different kinds of crops, all different kinds of vegetation.

00:05:33--> 00:05:37

So a few things to be said here to be learned. Number one,

00:05:38--> 00:06:22

whatever the names of these two men, what year that they live in what city or town, none of that is given unidentified. And we say time and time again, be sensitive, and be thoughtful. The Quran teaches you by what it tells you. And also teaches you might want it leaves out. So many times people in human history gets caught up in useless details, or distracting details. And many of us even we tell stories of guilty of this for sure, you get caught up as a part of unnecessary that part, you know detracted from the momentum of the point I was trying to drive home here, we're all likeness. None can tell stories, the way Eliza can tell stories, you know, think about like the boys

00:06:22--> 00:06:50

in the cave, I told you that Hamdulillah we don't know where the cave is, because people could go consider the shrine and start, you know, calling upon others and their spirits and their souls like they do with so many assumed locations of the dreams of the righteous, right? They treat those places as sites where they can speak to the righteous that have already died. As if those righteous are SME and all hearing even after they're dead. When all only Allah is all hearing and so on and so forth. You know, people have long debated

00:06:51--> 00:06:54

what kind of tree either isolates from

00:06:56--> 00:07:11

it is actually like it's useless. Was it this, this symbolizes that and was it this symbolizes? Well, it was important Allah told you, you missed the whole point if you try to figure out the kind of fruit that was on that branch that they ate.

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

And there's so many examples like this

00:07:16--> 00:07:59

so a was the origin strike striking a parable He wants to keep you awake in the story, tell you don't get caught up in the names don't get caught up in the ages don't get caught up in the generation. These are like archetypes. These are like typical forms, that many people fall into this pattern. As you will see this exchange this man, we're only going to discuss this man, the rich of the two. In today's session. So many people look just like him and act just like him. So don't think it's just some moment in history that is no longer relevant to us that will defeat the whole purpose. Allah saying strike for them worldly level. It's a parable for you. So that's the first

00:07:59--> 00:08:01

point you want us to always pay attention to.

00:08:02--> 00:08:20

John Maria had imagined nutty, we gave one of them too generous. Notice the word is gender because there are genders in this world Realistically speaking, a gender is what? What's the general answer is they would give people a garden. But here's the problem.

00:08:21--> 00:08:24

Boustead in Arabic is also a garden.

00:08:25--> 00:08:28

So what's the difference between Stan and agenda?

00:08:35--> 00:08:41

Yeah, there's many words for gardens per status idea. They said a Jenner is very

00:08:43--> 00:09:19

what is the word? Which it nests? And at first, it was like, woven Jannetty. Right? Like, trees are wrapped on each other. Right? So Jana is where it is so filled, it is so crowded, you can't see the dirt on the ground at times, right if it's a forest. And so they said at Boustead Boustead is a place designated for green designated for trees designated for crop but they could be spaced out. Right. There's liens and whatever it is right. Allah saying we gave you two generalists to gardens that are just crowded

00:09:21--> 00:10:00

with Anna Imam and of course I never pass the President that are very desirable fruit grapes. They make wine from it halal or haram. It's very desirable. Right? its market value is ancient. And the health benefits and and also our lab are they they're so delicate. And that is why they're so expensive because of you know, supply and demand that is harder to raise grapes is great for so diligence. Their lifespan is short, their texture is soft. And so whoever can produce for the world grapes gets the name their price. That's the idea right? And so that is one of the reasons why grapes or something

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

And to really identify here he was given to lush gardens filled with great whites. But that's not just it a lot of orca with Alison

00:10:11--> 00:10:55

will have now who may be nothing and we surrounded each of the gardens that have grape vines in them It's delicate desirable profitable crop surrounded them with date palms palm trees in your country they're very very strong right? Like when even when the storms come forget like the storms come the palm trees in Florida when left and right then they they come back to their place they're very strong they can withstand the winds, they're very protective. So the even the arrangement of how the crops worked out was perfectly the image is clear for you now. Very good, delicate crop the grapes in the middle for minimal trees in the back. Next slide Shala.

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

Then Allah azza wa jal says okay

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

kill tell Jenna Cheney both of these are Gardens ads that took hula

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

in brought about its harvest in in full bucola Has that which can meet it because they because you know

00:11:21--> 00:11:23

when a supplier produce

00:11:24--> 00:11:30

my mother was an agricultural engineer, but I was never humble enough to listen to her stories.

00:11:32--> 00:11:33


00:11:34--> 00:12:14

you know, what you don't need to be I also need you to know this right? That even when it gets to the store in front of us, you pick you selected, some of it winds up getting thrown out, right? This is from the farm the the best of the farm gets to the box, the rest of the box is you know, is picked out by the consumers everything else is pitch. So it's saying here that the farm produced in full like the shortchanging was never on his head, maybe the second you know, layer of the distribution, okay, but here we always have made it full, it always offered the maximum output, the quantity was always in full, they were always right, always edible, always profitable as an Akula.

00:12:14--> 00:12:56

While I'm totally mean Bucha nothing was shortchanged, he had never suffered any loss. This is extremely uncommon, because you know, you can even have like the palm trees protect your garden for you. But then like the locusts come and fly in the grasshoppers and you just destroy your your crop for that year and you're done, you're finished. And so many other things can happen right diseases can infest your crop, some sort of pestilence or disease or otherwise and your crop is not listening year in and year out. He was producing max output out of his garden. Its potential was always, you know, being harvested there. That what I'm talking to middle shade, and then he says what for Jonah

00:12:56--> 00:13:20

Fila level man Aha, and we made a river flow through them, or it's actually 70 level mappings between them. Like the fleet, you know, we say the fleet or saga, the fleet loss other means to make sure the water in your loop gets between the spaces in your fingers and your toes, right? That's definitely and that is why they say a family in

00:13:22--> 00:13:32

the family that workman because the family is the one who is loved penetrated every corner of the heart. Like it says every crevice of the heart is filled with their love.

00:13:36--> 00:13:42

The whole dilemma selling Metallica bohemian name, I mean, also me a colleague of Halina that he sort of like

00:13:43--> 00:13:49

trickled into every corner of my soul to halal and that's why he was called the holly the OC

00:13:52--> 00:14:25

and so Allah saying the N ha the rivers just happen to sort of exists between every corner of this meaning what does that mean? What's the benefit of that? That you have natural water supplies flowing through? Right? Every corner of your garden you don't have to pick up a hose you don't have to pick up a bucket you don't need to hire anyone really, really do anything. Like this man had a perfect business didn't have to touch it. He had *ing bought borrow the

00:14:26--> 00:14:38

the YouTube ads right? Sit back and get your residual income and all these scams for the most part, right that they're all calling you to it was really that easy. Everybody would be doing it right. You wouldn't have to be an interviewer.

00:14:41--> 00:14:54

But at the end of the day Allah saying this man was up the show the few that that had a kind of business like that he had this perfect business he didn't have to lift a finger to cultivate to protect the best arrangement possible was given to this man.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

And that's the description of

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

discarded now I'm gonna move on to how he reacted to the description. And

00:15:05--> 00:15:23

what you need to keep in mind here is that we're not gonna sit here and say, Wow, this guy is like totally blessed, right? It's not the fact that he was uniquely, you know, rich that we're supposed to be mesmerized right here. It's the fact that even though Allah is saying he had it all, remember, this is not yet.

00:15:24--> 00:15:58

That's what he's not gonna remember now. Right? So you're supposed to say, Allah really bless this man. And he's blessing him temporarily. Right? If you're putting yourself in that archetype, but I have this really good business. It's hooked up everything, accounting and infrastructure and systems and technology and checks and balances, and everything's in place. Great, right. But what is great mean Exactly? Does it mean forever? No, doesn't mean forever. The meaning? This is the idea. This man is going to overlook that. So the description of this Jana, let's move on to the next slide. A

00:16:01--> 00:16:45

lot of there's actually one more clause here Allah says, What can I let him come up, and he had abundant fruits. So thumb up usually means fruits, okay. Usually means fruits. And so what is the purpose of that line here? The scholars actually different. One group of scholars said, and thus you can align your thumb up means this is sort of his estate is Farms is plantations. And at the moment of the story, it was harvest season. Like they were boxed up and ready to go, right? Like the the fruit was on hand. He had the fruit on hand, right? He had abundant fruit on the other scholars say, no, let's not talk about the fruit anymore. Some are here means like,

00:16:46--> 00:17:11

what has been produced by his riches like, and he has been doing so well, for so long, he had so much prosperity built out around him. So here, it doesn't mean fruits as in, you know, the fruit itself that comes off the branch, it means and he had so many of the fruits of his riches he had mentioned and you have cars, we had horses, that idea, right?

00:17:13--> 00:17:15

They call it nowadays, what?

00:17:16--> 00:17:25

generational wealth sometimes, right? But like when you've had this going for so long, that it's all great. You're just all you know, I

00:17:27--> 00:18:06

I spent some time the past few years, visiting the Amish quite a bit in Lancaster. And I realized that many of them are just like, they're actually millionaires, no phone, a lot of people have cars, and there are millionaires. Why is that? Can I live with my mom, it's the product of his estates, his farms, like his house, he built his own hands or his grandfather built it, right? His costs are close to none. And this guy is not lifting a hand for anything. He says subsistence farmer, he's producing sort of his own little thing that he's living off the land. And then he writes, like, let's say 80% of his farm goes tobacco company somewhere into plants about goes and take care of the

00:18:06--> 00:18:14

tomatoes in our and gather this debacle leaves and go produce whatever they're gonna produce with bits of aqua, right? And so, it is all just accumulates.

00:18:15--> 00:18:19

And so, that is what is being that is what could be said here and one of the two deficits

00:18:20--> 00:18:24

will can and that will come out and he has everything on hand all different kinds of

00:18:25--> 00:18:49

so how did he react for all that he saw heavy? Well, who are you? How are you? So he started saying to his companion, some of the proceeds materials brother but his blood brothers Some say it was like his neighbor. The point is someone who is sort of his companion someone close most by either close in relations or close in physical proximity or at the physical nearness.

00:18:50--> 00:18:53

So he says to his companion in the middle of a conversation

00:18:54--> 00:19:01

and act Thermomix Kabbalah wa sunnah far I'm wealthier than you. And

00:19:04--> 00:19:18

no, it says here and greater in manpower was a better way to say this because Equitana means greater numbers, right? I've got to make a man and I have more numbers, quantity, what I do not follow up, and I have mightier manpower,

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

and I'm stronger, right?

00:19:25--> 00:19:39

So he does what many people do just the predicament of the ego when you're just prosperous for a little bit of time. After Allah just said, We gave him a garden of delicate fruits and we surrounded it with glue and we placed

00:19:40--> 00:19:53

the rivers in. Then he says, I did it. Right. I did and I have and it was my accomplishment and my education and my networking skills and you know, my intelligence

00:19:54--> 00:19:55

and so on and so forth.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

He fell into it by

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

There's a few also nuances here that are that are worthy of our attention. He said this to his companion, his friend. Well, who are you how we're in the middle of a conversation? Sounds like you walked out to someone and grabbed him by the ear and said, Hey, check this out. You're a loser. I'm not successful. You're a nobody. He slipped it into a conversation. Well, who are you have little in the middle of a back and forth.

00:20:27--> 00:20:38

And this reminds us about the fact that people can be craftier than others at hiding their seeds, hiding their self delusion. It doesn't mean you're not deluded, right.

00:20:39--> 00:20:46

You know, like you ship a book. I was listening on a long drive. So there is discussion on this area.

00:20:47--> 00:21:29

And he says, You don't know that guy. Sounded like a true story. But they'll say yeah, well, you had my daughter's wedding. I had to do it in such and such a place someplace knowing their part of the world, right? Yeah. Well, mine was $170. A chair. Where do you do your wedding in your kid's wedding? Again, that whole thing, right? Yeah, why the new car? Yeah, yeah, I was just, you know, I was bored of the old one. And those slips, right, just bored. So I flipped it right, I got a new card. So you have to be extremely careful. Sometimes, by the way, we don't just do this with like, a monetary currency. Sometimes we slip these things when we very, very, you know, undignified when we

00:21:29--> 00:21:41

use their religion as a currency. But someone offers you a cup of coffee, and instead of saying I'm fasting, you say, it's Monday. As if like I fast every single Monday, right? Like, you don't want to slip these things. You need to be careful. Like why did you say that?

00:21:42--> 00:21:50

Be on top of yourself. It could just slip away. Shavon stays after you until you you spill it. Right.

00:21:52--> 00:22:24

And also, you wouldn't really spill it if you were cared about your intention and you wouldn't spill it unless you felt like you something worth saying. Right? And so conceit usually happens before the self praise so this theater NAFSA self praise can see comes first so you wouldn't praise yourself unless you felt you were praiseworthy to begin with. And with the setup were very different. They used to hide their needs is like why am I telling them what I did? Like I don't even know if we got accepted. I can't risk my egos can take over at any minute. You know, there's a famous Hadith

00:22:25--> 00:22:38

A about the 70,000 that will go the agenda without any sort of reckoning. They don't seek Rokia they don't seek they don't ask someone to perform Loki on their spiritual purity candidate or to chant to cure.

00:22:40--> 00:22:44

It there's there's like a build up to the Hadith. Muslim. It says that.

00:22:47--> 00:22:49

slang, slang adopted on that

00:22:50--> 00:22:58

met, say the neutral base. I remember the seminary and say the debate asked them who saw the shooting star last night.

00:22:59--> 00:23:06

So for saying it just naturally says, Yeah, I saw it. I saw it. And then he stopped for a second. He said,

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

Am I in need? I could be salah, but I wasn't praying. Like it's not even saying what you did is like making sure people don't assume I did more than I did. It's the complete opposite of what many of us do. He said I was not praying when I didn't need to deal. I was actually up all night I was stung by a scorpion.

00:23:24--> 00:23:31

Very beautiful personalities. They had their heads on straight. Anyway, so then they went in talking about how you can take care of this thing using okay.

00:23:33--> 00:23:47

And so not everyone is like this socially unintelligent narcissist, that saying I'm amazing, right? I'm super rich, and no one's as good as me no one's as rich as me as well, who are you have little as they converse, this came up.

00:23:51--> 00:24:26

And as I said, I am hesitant with this, but the concept of saw people who his friend said this, some scholars said This means he was like the best friend of the guy. And yet he still was asserting his leverage in their relationship. That is a lesson to be taken many times, you know, you're in this relationship with someone and supposedly you're supposed to be friends, but you're always making sure that the upper hand is yours. And the last word is yours. And you're talking and they're listening. And this is this is not the friendship, it's not a different, someone that always feels the need to assert their agency or their leverage or their edge on their friends for heavy usage, or

00:24:26--> 00:24:40

companions of the prison cell and you saw they set up they're not necessarily trying to just happen to be, you know, associated with him by location. In any case, perhaps there is a lesson to be taken as well the next athletes. Next slide.

00:24:42--> 00:25:00

Then Allah azza wa jal says after he finishes talking to his friend, that's what agenda for the following letter mu of lava valuable enough said he enters his garden while wronging himself and think about that, like he just offended His friend he just made

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

His friends feel bad or that man feel bad. But Allah is saying you are failing at ascribing the naira to me the favor to me. You're that you're the loser. Right? You're the wrongdoer here, you're the victim here, you've wronged yourself. You're like the oppressor and the oppressed at the same time, you've oppressed yourself. How did he express himself? He just went further into delusion, color, man, I won't know and savvy that had the evidence

00:25:30--> 00:25:37

in that state of haughtiness, oppressing himself, he said, what I would think this will ever perish,

00:25:38--> 00:26:15

EPA, and the word ever, then there is the very same error that we heard in the description of Jana. Remember, I said the description of Jana, then the man that has a garden as agenda, this guy starts assuming, right? I don't think this is going anywhere. Like my business is really set. Enriched means I'll always be rich. So that was the first of the three mistakes he made. The first of them, he believed that what he had was totally guaranteed, totally automated. As I said before, like he has this like, explanation, his head, that infrastructure, and system and precedent, what happened all these years, it means it's going to happen

00:26:17--> 00:26:29

forever. The only thing I want to say here before just running to the next I have two other mistakes, is I want you to notice that he said this, I don't think this will ever go anywhere alone.

00:26:31--> 00:26:37

Again, this is just social intelligence. Right? You say in the middle of the conversation, right? You know,

00:26:39--> 00:26:50

my God is awesome, right? I got all this that you don't have. And I have greater manpower and a bigger family or more employees or whatever he meant, right? And now when he's alone, that's me saying

00:26:52--> 00:26:53

I'm going to have this for a long time.

00:26:55--> 00:27:11

Do you know why it's important? Because nobody ever is silly enough to say, I don't think I'm gonna die. Right? But many people deep down inside feel like that can be ignored, right? I mean, mortal.

00:27:12--> 00:27:24

And hassle was actually the one that said this. He said, I've never seen people more certain about something the way they're certain about death. Meaning if you ask them verbally, are you going to die them of course.

00:27:25--> 00:27:42

Right. I've never desert seen any people more certain more agreeing, right. unanimous agreement, certainty that there's death. He said, But I've never seen people treat treat something. Like it's so uncertain. The way they treat this

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

is profound.

00:27:46--> 00:27:50

We all say for sure I'm gonna die. But to ourselves, we say

00:27:51--> 00:27:54

long time coming, right? Nothing to think about right now.

00:27:57--> 00:28:03

So that was the first mistake. Totally guaranteed. totally automated, nothing to worry about. Its its end is nowhere in sight.

00:28:06--> 00:28:08

Next slide, which I love this last slide will cover.

00:28:10--> 00:28:20

And then he continues to say to himself, one that I wouldn't have set out to haunt him. And I don't think the hour is coming. Look, it's the disease's mutating.

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


00:28:25--> 00:28:40

I don't think the hour is going to happen, I don't think is the induction thing is gonna happen. What are included to either be in the edgy then firing him or whatever. And if I'm returned to my Lord, I'll find something better anyway.

00:28:41--> 00:28:46

Then this, these riches, in that return to my Lord, when I get there, it's gonna be even nicer.

00:28:48--> 00:29:28

So the first mistake is guarantee that delusion. The second mistake is that there's actually nothing beyond this. There's no you're after, there's no resurrection. And subhanAllah you know, look at this map. This man is like a farmer. Right? his business, his crops. He sees life come out of the dead every spring. Allah tells us go outside and look at the springtime how Allah gives life to the earth after it has died, can barely get to for June. Likewise, you will come out of the earth after you've died. Yet this is the one who doubts that you will come out after you've done. He's a farmer. He should have the greatest access.

00:29:30--> 00:29:33

But this is what happens when you become intoxicated with this world.

00:29:34--> 00:30:00

Remember, we said in Ramadan and dunya humble Shabbat that this dunya it's not haram, but it is the intoxicant the shofar very quickly intoxicating if you put your guard down. That's why we say that in our time, we have greater reasons to believe that ever, like with all these scientific instruments, we see the universe better than everyone else ever saw it. So we should be more humbled and we should be greater believers than ever, but as a result

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

Oh, we feel more of the god complex than ever that we are our gods, we control the universe.

00:30:06--> 00:30:08

That's what happened to this man.

00:30:09--> 00:30:41

When he got comfortable with this dunya, I don't want to think about the end. This is natural, anyone that builds out their world, and then it sneaks into their hearts, we should build out our world, as you know, as part of our livelihood as part of our service to humanity, part of our building out our FL this world is the bridge to the hereafter. But when it slipped into his heart, you don't want the hereafter to be true. You don't want it to be true. Let this be all there is because it's genuine. Notice the connection between the earlier verses of Jenner and the presumed gender.

00:30:44--> 00:30:47

You know, and and as a matter of law,

00:30:48--> 00:31:03

he mentions that human nature. And there's also a powerful lesson, people downplay the utility of fear, fear, insecurity can be very powerful for our faith. When people feel too secure, they begin to doubt their nature.

00:31:04--> 00:31:28

But whenever there's a healthy amount of fear, fear can be actually what drives you to believe, as the example has only gives him a whole lot. Imagine your city has a fleet of food, right? Is this good? Yeah, of ours. And a little kid comes that's ordinarily not to be trusted little kid isn't always talking to the chef, right? A little kid runs along and says, By the way, there's poison in the school.

00:31:30--> 00:31:33

He said, the likelihood of this child being right is very little.

00:31:34--> 00:32:04

But any sensible person will get uncomfortable enough from what he said that he'll start exploring and investigating. It's not worth Why would I gamble, right? And so a little bit, the right amount of fear drives people to your team to check just in case, right? Because just the stakes are too high. We'll do when you feel like there are no stakes, because the comfort is just blinding, smothering managers doubt.

00:32:05--> 00:32:14

So that was the second problem. First one is it we thought it would stay forever. The second color is nothing beyond one, one album was sanctified. By the way.

00:32:17--> 00:32:34

He's a disbeliever. At this point, if you started a believer or not, he's a disbeliever at this point, because now, if it settles and you speak it, or you believe it, passing thoughts are fine. But once you start seeing when I enrolled into LRP, if I'm returned to my Lord, you're not the believer anymore. Right?

00:32:35--> 00:32:40

If I returned to my Lord, then Things only get better.

00:32:43--> 00:33:21

You know that there are people that follow this goal, especially in this out of this country, the prosperity gospel, right? prosperity theology, whether you believe it as a doctrine that you read somewhere or hear from your preacher or whatever, or you actually disbelieve it, because you're deluded, is very widespread, very widespread. It's basically the idea that prosperity comes from God. So if I'm prosperous, God wants me to be prosperous. That means if I'm wealthy, God loves me. This is why many people, they see these mega churches in the south, and they see this preacher who makes like $4 million a week or a month or something. And they said, how are these people so

00:33:21--> 00:34:02

foolish? They give them all his money they give these poor people give up all their money, and this guy's driving flying private jets, and no, no, they believe that he deserves this. They believe that if God loves a person, he says, dunya their way. I can critique that here. But that's not the point. The point is outside of those who express their belief in this, many people believe this. I got a house I'm healthy. I'm changing my car, three years getting a new car, that means I'm alright. That means that was and that means what's waiting for me in Gemini is going to be even greater blessings. And that's very dangerous. So he thought his hard it will stay. And he thought there is no life

00:34:02--> 00:34:07

beyond this life. And then he thought if there's a hereafter it will only get better.

00:34:08--> 00:34:19

And of course, it's not true, right? When Allah loves the person who gives them Dean, it gives them feet, gives them email, the duniya everybody gets Dr. wasa Allah has.

00:34:20--> 00:34:28

Allah says no to him in another if we give him every believer, this believer of habit or you don't need them.

00:34:32--> 00:34:35

When you think of Shavon Shavon was given really nice residence.

00:34:36--> 00:34:53

He was given basically, you know, the villas, the agents, he was given very high status. But the problem was that he thought it meant that he is security status with God, which is a very different thing. And even the Bible says, pride cometh before the fall was the Bible. biblical author, actually a Christian

00:34:55--> 00:34:58

pride happens before the fall happens you get diluted with yourself

00:34:59--> 00:34:59

and the

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

Last thing I will say here is that he said, Let in Rudy to either and he didn't say that in Ruggiero. He didn't say if I'm returning to my Lord, I don't think he says that. But I want you to develop a deeper appreciation of what are what is my projection? Not so like if God pulls me out of here, he wakes me up out of my comfortable but God calls me to the hereafter fine, it's probably going to be for a good reason. It's probably just wants to give me more anyway. So, you just you see his you know, the diseases nature of the complex is starting to get fixated, deeply entrenched in his mentality May Allah protect.

00:35:40--> 00:35:48

Instead of attributing the favorites of God, we tribute it to himself and the downward spiral happening. What his companion will respond to him

00:35:50--> 00:35:56

is worth studying for next Friday in sha Allah. So Jen, we will stop here. Satanic life digital
