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

In the

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

sky with us

00:00:40--> 00:00:40

yeah

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

yeah you

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

01

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

double blah,

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

blah

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

blah foo colon sadita

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

for many of our

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

phones and

00:01:18--> 00:01:31

we begin the name of Allah, all praise and glory of love Lord might, the Most Merciful, the grantor of mercy, all praise and glory be to Him in the manner that he deserves. And we justify them known as worthy of worship

00:01:32--> 00:01:36

and protection and forgiveness with him and him alone.

00:01:37--> 00:01:55

From the whispers of our souls, and the human consequences that would result of our actions for remember love guides, guide and whomever among us without guidance, no one can guide and we justify that no one is worthy of our worship, our dedication, our love and our lives, both of us

00:01:57--> 00:01:57

but

00:01:59--> 00:02:18

the majestic and glorified without any partners at the property, above our deities Prophet and his servant, that is messenger, or people of Emad have the tough love a love and do not die except in a state of complete and total surrender to have a complete and total consciousness of our state of Islam.

00:02:20--> 00:03:05

And to begin after welcome our brothers and sisters back to the house of Allah so agenda will begin with our journey through the Quran or through an overview of the Quran. And today we have an appointment with the a very special soul of the sixth soul of the soul of Anna, and social interactions and very, very special place among the sutras in the book of a law of syllogism. And it takes a very drastic turn, if you're reading the most hospitable and from its cover to its cover between the first four sore we discussed Macron and Iran, and he said in America, and between Sudan and Iran, for a number of reasons of them is that this is the first suitor we are discussing that

00:03:05--> 00:03:18

was revealed in Mecca. And that is different and unique. It is unlike the previous students we discuss, nor is it like the majority of the soldiers that landed in Mexico.

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

And some of the

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

anti

00:03:27--> 00:04:05

Islamic writers, the those who wrote against Islam, the critics of Islam. They said that the reason why the sword in Medina were long and the sword in Mexico were short, it was because the people in America were not very literate. They didn't know much, right. But when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam moved to Edina, there was people of Scripture there it was the Christians, the Jews and Christians visited so he plagiarized from them. And of course a person that doesn't know his book we say okay, I guess it makes sense that ours are shorter in Mecca, and the eyes are much longer in Medina. But this soul

00:04:06--> 00:04:14

and the soul after in Charlottesville are off are two of the longest sort of the poor and very lengthy verses and they were revealed in Mexico.

00:04:16--> 00:04:33

And so it is a unique meccan surah. And its arrival was also very unique as it is on the other monument says that an iron was revealed in Mecca all at once. This was the view report to the best of the level.

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

And it was revealed in the company it was escorted to this earth by 70,000 angels. This is a prelude to what the surah is all about. You know when you see a funeral procession or a celebrity passing and there's one car after another after it was going on here what's happening. This is all to set the stage for what's about to happen. The arrival of this great song

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

70,000 angels were accompanying the surah yet you won't be all of them yelling aloud or calling proclaiming are loud the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala the glory of Allah. So why will this great atmosphere? What's all this? This is because that is exactly what sort of anime is about. The most obvious theme in sort of, is, number one, the greatness of Allah, his glory, His Majesty, his supremacy, his exaltation. And secondly, what it means to recognize the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's very important, because a person as a matter of fact, on a factual level can say God is great.

00:05:49--> 00:06:37

But this does not translate into an emotion, his life, he's not alert to this concept in his life. This has no active role in it. And so so then I'm keen to remove those two things. Number one, understand how great Allah is. And number two, be of those who actively recognize that let it show on a feeling and action, fear submissiveness, just like the rest of the universe is the product of all love, and it testifies to him. So do you, so should you. So it begins right from the beginning. And humbly that caliper semi was a gentleman who met him a new thumb and Latina Kapha will be our big room. All Praise be to Allah and the word that can because we didn't discuss in fact, the IR

00:06:37--> 00:07:21

series you mentioned, it now means two things as sukru Athena to thank Allah meaning for everything he does, and to praise a lot for everything that he is you thank someone for action that he does toward you usually, and you praise someone for a quality even if they don't know who you are, but the quality that they have, that's impressive about them. So when Allah says and having done in that, the praise all of it All praise belongs to Allah because everything came from him and every single thing that he teaches us about him, and every single thing about him is impressive and admirable. So all praise be to Allah who is Allah who created the heavens and the earth, and and

00:07:21--> 00:08:06

created Giada also means created night and day. And then the disbelievers go off Brb, me afternoon. They equate people with a lot, they don't recognize his greatness. The scholar said, It begins with this generality, because the heavens and the earth are every everything above you is called some app called Luma semafo. For everything that is above, you can be called semi, and everything beneath you could be called auto. So he's basically saying a lot who created all of space. And he he created nights and the he created time, the creator of time and space, how can you acquaint him with anyone? How can these disbelievers give him an equal, then the IRS continued to say,

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

He created you out of sand out of mud. And then he gave you a pro pointed turn

00:08:15--> 00:08:21

and turn around and then you dispute about Allah. And He is Allah who is glorified, his greatness is known

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

out of the way.

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

He knows what you do in private and in public.

00:08:28--> 00:08:33

And he knows all that you earn a lot. So Genesis, one method

00:08:35--> 00:09:19

of being in that camera camera. See, it's so obvious his greatness, but no matter what side we send them, even if we make the whole universe assign, they choose to ignore it, one at a team and there does not come to straight to them to their doorstep, any of the signs of their Lord, except that they turn a blind eye to sollozzo jealousy, the signs are there, don't ask for the signs. They are so obvious. And then he gives the example Didn't you ask for a book, if we even sent a book down on buses and bus in a notebook? for them assuming a demon they held it in their own hands. The disbelievers would say this is magic. Maybe we're intoxicated, maybe drink some wine, maybe we

00:09:19--> 00:09:51

smoked some marijuana, as we say nowadays, maybe this is it's an optical illusion, even if we made it so even more obvious, you still wouldn't believe that our law says all of this the same size we are accustomed to in the hotel, he says, and then you say oh send an angel. Even if he would have sent an angel he would have made him a man and was this so that you can relate to us? We send an angel and say I can't relate to an angel. I'm human. That's an angel. Meaning it's not an issue of there not being enough proof. It's an issue of you not wanting to believe.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

And so Allah as he does when they demand the book that they can touch or demand an angel to see with their own eyes. He says

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

There are much simpler signs in everything that are more than enough. So he says to kind of have a data in a Lucha family could have you and Allah is the one who split open to see. You're just not paying attention. And he's the one who split open the dates that they mean he's the one that cracks open these dead inanimate objects and cause the stem to grow out for them to germinate from life to come out of the dead. Usually to animate your mostly to make them Hayes's he's the one that brings life out of the dead out of that seed after the winter is over. You're just not focusing. When he says fairly poorly. He is the one that breaks open the Subash morning, from the dark night, he

00:10:48--> 00:11:15

brings it to you every morning, you're just taking it for granted. You're not paying attention. See the prophets of Allah, who raised his companions upon the simple things that they were enough to feed their faith and slightly Muslim. Speaking of the morning, he said, Oh, who attended a number of additions? Do you know where the sun when's called a more suitable messenger Novus, he said, the habit that he tested you that

00:11:17--> 00:12:00

you know how bad it went to prostrate make sujood onto the throne of Allah, whether we can act conceptualize it and understand that or not, he told us a large and this is what happens the same way the Quran says everything glorifies Allah, but you can't understand it. Likewise, the sun, he said it frustrates to Allah under his throne. And then it asks him permission to come out for another sunrise, and are not permits for it to come out. He said, and then they will come over Buddha wanted to ask permission to come out. And the one who said the sun in orbit will command the sun to go the other way. It will ask its Lord permission to come out. And I will send it say go back

00:12:00--> 00:12:21

where you came from. And that will be the day that the sun will not rise from the east, it will rise from the west and that would be the commencement of the hour. That would be the day of judgment. So he's the one that breaks open the morning allows the sun to come up, or will you not consider these are what they are saying. He says he's the one that sends down rain from the sky

00:12:22--> 00:12:50

and provides you with produce with vegetation was a tuna rumen and the olives and the pomegranate, the fruits and the vegetables that he says some kind of data about these fruits and vegetables from literally that feminie that. Hey, listen, stop for a second and look at the fruits when they yield. Time for harvest. When you have a fruit in your hands the ordinary things. Look at stock versus Panama.

00:12:52--> 00:13:29

Oh, this was what it was like a few months ago. Look at the fruit eat the ephemera once it yields way edited it and see how it ripens for you. What else do we have Ponyo? Maha Swati and pay it's dude this is this is a kind of vegetation and pay it's due on the day of its harvests. Meaning of Mars, those are the same when you get the fruit Hold on. This is a sign from Allah and has a right due to Allah, the sign of Allah is that you consider his power, his greatness, his generosity in this and the right of Allah that you place a cap on your vegetation, before you sell it before you

00:13:30--> 00:13:34

before you consume and hope whether it works price.

00:13:35--> 00:13:49

And the solar continues with this same pattern, refusing to mention anything but the greatness of our mark in the little things. And this is the beauty of Susan and the greatness of his knowledge. For example, when

00:13:51--> 00:13:57

he says in the surah with him, are the treasure chests locked away of the unseen like

00:13:59--> 00:14:10

nobody knows these things. But these are the five things you mentioned in the last. Look, man, maybe we get to it in the future. No one knows these aspects of the scene unseen potami.

00:14:12--> 00:14:25

Then you continue to see other things now unseen, that you might be able to discover or partially come across why Arla Murphy barely went by, and he knows whatever is in the lens, and whatever is and see.

00:14:27--> 00:14:39

Until today, we are discovering things in the lens. Until today, we are plunging deeper and deeper into the seas. They just discovered a new shot. I was reading an article a few weeks ago.

00:14:41--> 00:14:44

One manifesto to me the war of partying in

00:14:46--> 00:15:00

a tension is not the leaf that falls from a tree except that he knows about it. So he doesn't just know everything in general even knows the specifics, pay attention. The whole surah is about that word that I will keep repeating

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

Pay attention.

00:15:02--> 00:15:48

You know, in school, they they, they have this famous philosophical question that says if a tree falls in the forest, and no one is there to hear it, does it actually make a sound a lot. dogen shatters that argument and says, forget the tree, there's not a leaf. There's not a leaf that falls, except that he knows about. You can allow that fact to pass on deaf ears. But when you sit there for a second, and look at this small piece of greenery outside the masjid, how difficult would it be for you to accurately count how many blades of grass how many leaves are in that small section outside the mysterious lexicons. And then imagine how many leaves on a walk, how many leaves are in a city,

00:15:48--> 00:16:18

or village, how many leaves are in a country, how many leaves are on the planet, he has recorded full knowledge, every drop every ounce of that leaf, he knows about it. So kind of what I what I have been feeling romantic about, nor is there even nor is there even a seed in the darkness is in the plural of the earth, meaning a seed inside the darkness of the ocean, onto the middle of the ocean in the middle of the night, except that he knows about

00:16:19--> 00:16:34

the greatness of his knowledge that he says also, and so that it's not just the animate things that he knows specifically in every fine detail, even the things that are not tangible that you can't touch he knows about. He says to His prophets, Allah, la

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

cadena Allah,

00:16:39--> 00:16:45

I know him, we know certainly how much it hurts you to hear what they're saying about you.

00:16:46--> 00:17:21

For now, you can be munakata body mean? That they're not really belying there, they don't really think you're a liar. And he's reassuring him regarding the emotions he knows about him. And this is from the greatness of his mouth, there's no exception to even our feelings, you know, so kind of what he knows when it hurts, he knows when we're joy, he knows all of that thick and thin. Every subtle matter, he has full knowledge of, they're not denying you, they simply do not want to admit to come to terms with

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

the verses of of love the signs of Mama. And so the brand does here. And

00:17:28--> 00:17:56

it teaches you how to think, on what level to reflect. And this is of the greatness of the brand. And that's why it's so good. And I was going to be talking about the most greatness of the most important things you'd expect her to talk about. And it does is the greatness of this book, the greatness of his words. This is part of the greatness of Allah, Khadija, and in Basra in the Rugby Club, there has come to you insight from your Lord.

00:17:58--> 00:18:02

This is our fifth football and us as brothers and sisters.

00:18:03--> 00:18:39

Have you begun to have you changed yet? like have you used the keys that we've tried to hand over so that we can go home? Have you gone home and read the I tried to see and if you have a habit to start to see things differently, this is something you have to believe in that without the poor and you can't see straight without the poor and you're looking through a completely different lens without the poor me, you and me We are actually blind. We are blind in the truest sense of the word. We are more blind than the person that doesn't see the need for

00:18:43--> 00:18:59

eyesight that goes blind. Rather, the hearts in the chest go blind inside of the eyesight. That's true blindness. Rather without the plan, you need to believe that you're not just blind without the flag you did. You're not alive. And so I

00:19:00--> 00:19:02

kind of know what alysus

00:19:03--> 00:19:05

in them is G Boolean is

00:19:07--> 00:19:15

indeed those that will respond to this reminder, look at the little things pay attention, who will respond to pay attention the people that can hear.

00:19:17--> 00:19:31

So he said the person who's a believer is the person that can hear when melter evacuate. And the deceased person, the dead people, they will wake up to the reminder of love will wake them all

00:19:33--> 00:19:48

in on the Day of Judgment. So those that can hear versus those that are dead. So the believer is someone that can hear that's what's supposed to be you're supposed to have access to this book and listen carefully. And this believer is someone who's not alive and he doesn't look at the book to begin with.

00:19:50--> 00:19:53

And Suzanne, Allah says a woman can animate and

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

what about the one who was dead and so we gave him life.

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

And we provided for him the slides. That's why

00:20:04--> 00:20:17

he said about these if he says, Those that understand the poor and they're alive and they give life to others, he says, Matt Yun and Nikita Mota while you are co owner, you know what?

00:20:19--> 00:20:32

The scholars those that understand the last book, they look at the world differently, and they help you understand the world differently through the Quran. He says they give life using the book of Allah to those that are that.

00:20:33--> 00:20:39

And they are allowed to see using the likes of Allah from his book, those that are blind.

00:20:42--> 00:21:03

And so the or l clarifies really these things and gives you the insight of the interesting things with an arm that we really need to talk about, of what it clarifies for you of what would sue the landlord reminds you about it reminds you or clarifies or explains to you when your reminders will run out.

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

When you're going to be up.

00:21:08--> 00:21:36

He said some of the signs of his greatness is that he disables you from doing certain things, he puts problems in your life. If it was up to you, you wouldn't have a single problem in your life. If your knowledge was great, and you could plan everything out if your power was great, and you could resist every obstacle. He disables you to show you who you are. He says this fellow named Jeff sooner 1% pulu boom was a another auto mechanic.

00:21:38--> 00:21:46

Worried not the case shouldn't have been that when our tournament came to them. When our punishment came to them. They were humble.

00:21:48--> 00:22:23

Meaning they believe they were humbled into belief, true belief above above. But what is the problem was saying, well, that gives us a clue. And their hearts became hard. Meaning when a person you know the biggest problem in your life is what is when you have a problem your life and you don't see all what's left after that. If you're stuck between a rock and a hard place, and you don't fall on your face and say, Oh Allah rescued, meaning if this if you're not going to remember then when exactly we remember

00:22:25--> 00:22:28

if the problems are not going to wake you up,

00:22:29--> 00:22:42

the good times are not going to wake you up. You know, they say up the wisdom of having these problems in your life, betrayals, disappointments, poverty, sickness, whatever, is to remind you that you're asleep. You're either

00:22:43--> 00:23:00

and so you make two because they're in bad worship enslavement that I've done that I've heard that he's in the state of Nevada, because he's right. That's enslavement where you admit to a lot of your poverty is the whole point when you put you there. So kind of what I

00:23:01--> 00:23:15

but you know, the I run after him says What about your chances expired, he says if you're not going to wake up, then when I put you through hardships, you're going to keep forgetting that this is what's going to happen for them and as soon as you will be.

00:23:18--> 00:23:35

When they insisted on forgetting all the reminders, even the hardship he doesn't come back to us. He's still not rushing back to a love, we open up for him the gates of everything we provide him with all he wants and more. Keep in mind, remember we said to the man, the ease of her arm is a test.

00:23:37--> 00:23:41

The context is what when they forgot our reminder, we

00:23:42--> 00:24:11

had the inner fairy who belonged to a phenomenal mountain for example. We gave them all they wanted until they became over. So joy over joy is with what they were granted. We snatch them, and they be they fell into destruction movie soon filled with regrets. And so a person's job is to remember while the reminders still stand, or else if you don't appreciate the reminder, more distractions will be thrown your way.

00:24:13--> 00:24:59

And so so when it comes to snap a person out of all of that, it tells them pay attention, feed your feed, feed your your team feed your conviction. And how do you do that? By being a person not being a drone, other person that sees the fruit and just eats it and sees the sun in it. He doesn't connect all of these to the actions of love. And that's why it gives us a beautiful story to the story of Ibrahim alayhis salaam. As he does that he becomes a person of thought he said soprano with the island. What can then he can do it Ibrahima mallacoota semi watsonville. Oh, and this is how this is how we showed Ibrahim the dominie we enabled him to focus to pay attention

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

The diminishing of the heavens and the earth so that he would be of the people of European, so that he would have certainty so that he would be of the people of conviction. And so when he begins to look at the universe around him, and there's a famous debate whether he was discovering or just using this to debate,

00:25:20--> 00:25:33

and honestly the second opinion that he was just using this for argument's sake to disprove the disbelievers around, because they were those around him with worship the stars and the moon and the sun in his time, the siblings that were idolaters

00:25:34--> 00:25:44

Allah says, so he would be of the people of your team. And so he looked at the stars. And he said to them, is this my loan? Right?

00:25:46--> 00:26:25

Again, this is either rhetorical How can this be my Lord? Or is this really my loan? Right? So he asked rhetorically, the point, the position I'm choosing or leading to is this my Lord. And then when the star goes, he says, I don't want anything that disappears. No way My Lord can be someone that disappears. My Lord cannot be someone that created the earth and six and rested on the seventh, my lord cannot be someone that doesn't have my qualities doesn't have in the intelligence of a human being. It has to be above that the greatness of a monk cannot be mistaken. That's the point of it. And so he says, No, can't be the star. And he started from the star. Then he went upwards. Then he

00:26:25--> 00:26:34

saw the moon, he said, this one, then it disappeared. I don't like things that said it disappeared. And then he saw the biggest of them the sun, he said, is that my Lord,

00:26:35--> 00:27:20

and then the sunsets. He said, Oh my people, I have nothing to do with it. He disconnected at that point. He said, Oh my people in the home in a very magical, I am disassociated. I am never a person that will confuse with the greatness of my Lord, anything. I am innocent of all you wish to see who you associate with Allah, in me with what God led me to believe. When my enemy ship him, I have turned my face, I have paid attention. I've given my undivided attention. I've turned my face to the one who originated the heavens and the earth. Everything we originate all of our inventions as human beings are what

00:27:21--> 00:27:34

they are inventions that we improve with every brand new date, the iPhone four becomes a five becomes a six, the car has a newer model and a newer model, I have turned my face to the one who did it perfect the first time around. So

00:27:36--> 00:27:40

these things are signs of his greatness, but they are not his greatness.

00:27:41--> 00:27:59

I've turned my face to the one that originated the heavens and the earth hanifa inclined to whom only one man and eminent machine key, I am not those that acquaint anyone with him. You know, this reality that they brought him on. He said, I'm living my brothers and sisters. This is what enabled him

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

to remain firm. This is what enabled him to do all that he did. This is what enabled him to live a life truly for Allah. He wasn't confused by their arguments. He was not he was not pressured by their threats, he was not tempted by their offers, nothing was able to face him. And this is very relevant for us now online. You know, the whole concept of I mentioned this many times, the people worshipping whatever their mind sell them to worship, the man made system, the ideologies, the ideas, the trends, the globalized world runs on this now, right? They think once a religion says something, they know something greater. No, that doesn't make sense. I have something that makes

00:28:48--> 00:29:10

sense. A person who knows the greatness of Allah will not ever assume that his logic is greater than the logic of a lot. You won't be confused with the argument, the logic of the threats, take none of all of that will crash in front of him. You know, interestingly into the machine, he can try to do something with our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it was addressed in Suzanna.

00:29:11--> 00:29:12

They said to Mohammed

00:29:14--> 00:29:20

a an animal that you slaughter a sheep or a cow. Is this permissible to eat? He said yes.

00:29:21--> 00:29:23

They said an animal that we find Dead

00:29:25--> 00:29:41

Can we eat this? He said no. So they said to him this is this is stupidity. It's not logic. They said to him, what do you and your companions killed with your hands? Right? What do you and your companions kill with your hands is Hello. The slaughter

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

and what what kills with his head natural death as we call it? Yeah. What what kills by his choice by his hand is how. So they're saying your religion what's your God says is illogical. You see, when you don't know the greatness of Allah, you begin to compare your logic with his supposedly as you

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

You can when you have a problem in your life you say why did Allah do this to me because you don't know that his wisdom is greater than yours His mercy with you is greater than your own mercy with yourself the greatness is absent from your heart. So when they said this to him, some of them Allah says in Sudan around one at pulu me man mymail newcrest muhuali And don't you dare eat whatever was not slaughtered in the name of Allah will enable that is an eating that is okay, eating that which is not slaughtered

00:30:35--> 00:30:38

is a rebellion to a large loss. It's a sin a major sin.

00:30:40--> 00:31:23

We're in nutshell Dean Allahu ala LDA ley de gente Whoo hoo hoo hoo, in the Congo, Chico. And the devils they inspire to each other faulty logic, meaning they inspire to each other these arguments so that they can debate with you Allah saying that, so that they can debate with you. And if you obey them, you are emotionally cool. You have associated parties, have you been acquainted with your mind, European or his opinion, your mind your logic, supposedly, the logic of the Divine is understood, it makes sense. So if you eat it, it's wrong. But if you think you're allowed to eat it, then you're overturning a muscle to begin with, you're not gonna believe it to begin with. This is

00:31:23--> 00:31:56

what happens to people that begin to think they can one up God on this logic. And so they would begin these arguments with running, running. He says, Listen, don't even try. I have disassociated myself from you. And from all that you propose, and all that you threaten me with, and all that to tempt me with, I will continue to live for Allah, you're not going to face me. I'm not going to be confused. I'm not going to allow anything to seem comparable in my life. You can't get that blurry inside of you. You know why this is so important, because of the most important idea of the poor and not just

00:31:57--> 00:32:38

at the end of the sewer speaks about that concept called inner solidarity. One Suki, one woman Merci de la. say to them say no, you believe something gotta say, say to them, and the word only appears and I'm almost more than any other school because when something is overflows inside you. Why will that painting this restaurant? Look at that building, you just speak. If you're a little more religious, or maybe you'll say some kind of law, right? you'll speak our thing. See my prayer, my sacrifice my living my diet. That's all for love. There's nothing left for you don't even try. You know, your prayer being for a love, find who else you got to pray to your sacrifice and you

00:32:38--> 00:32:51

slaughter these are berries and devotions for love fine. You're dying for Allah. May Allah render sincerity in that whoever acts with sincerity receives that that degree of martyrdom, even if they die on their bed, the prophets of Allah.

00:32:52--> 00:33:04

But they're really hard. The one is to live for Allah. This is not an act, this is the life to live your life for Allah. Who can do that? Someone with the certainty that he

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

was able to do that to become a solid iron believer? Do you live for almost kind of what I you know, the person that lives for a lot, he lives the one who tastes it, he lives in a different world. Nothing can faze him because he believes his life doesn't even belong to Him. It belongs to Allah Subhana Allah di so he sees the world completely differently through the eyes of being certain in became so kind of without

00:33:34--> 00:33:35

a homophone he has

00:33:55--> 00:33:56

born in the US view, awesome.

00:33:57--> 00:34:20

So the people that are able to live or have loving actuality their whole life, ask yourself that question when you go home today. These are people that are loved, locked in their hearts, his greatness, the point of the soul, he the people that Allah saw from them, they were trying. So he enabled them to be home to observe his greatness.

00:34:22--> 00:34:40

And when they did that, they weren't able to recognize anything else. They weren't even able to recognize themselves. And so these people when they speak, they speak for a lot about a lot when they're silent there with a lot of conviction, right? When they walk they walk for a lot when they sit or they act they behave this behavior is for

00:34:42--> 00:34:59

whoever I'm not God, it's true that lives a good life. And whoever does it is miserable years into someone's life and knows best about the hereafter. That's when Sousa interacts a lot. So Genesis, what familiarity led to YESHUA

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

The minister, whomever one wants to guide, he sees he deserves it.

00:35:05--> 00:35:19

He opens he widens, expands his chest to surrender. Right? He makes it easy for it. It makes it enjoyable for him to surrender to this Islam, when you read and you leave your job

00:35:20--> 00:35:38

on how urgent and NEMA Assad and whomever he wishes to mislead, because he knows he doesn't want guidance, he knows he's used up the reminders and doesn't want anymore and if they call him he's not going to accept them to begin with. He makes his height his chest tight and constricted, as it is being elevated through the heavens to the skies.

00:35:39--> 00:36:06

You know, the great Moroccan scholar, the late scholar, Dr. Frieden Ansari, he says about this is my problem, which is to guide a woman's chest for Allah. He says, You know what a love guide someone to believing when I love God, someone to accepting that His Word is true. And his promise doesn't ever falter. He believes in the hereafter. For example, He believes that that is not the end,

00:36:07--> 00:36:44

this person and whoever tastes that he lives a completely different life, because he sees that as a bridge, he says, so when you see that as a bridge, at that point, you don't care too much whether you live or die, because if you're going to be living, you're going to be filling it with good deeds, and you're going to be filled with hope. And you're not going to be disheartened. And you know, a lot could protect you from all that worries you. And you know that if Allah chooses to take away your life, it's only for an upgrade in the hereafter. He says and then on the opposite end, the person that believes that the person was deprived of being guided having his chest expanding, this

00:36:44--> 00:37:24

person lives a tight life, this person is so afraid for the bottom to get turned off on the screen. When he believes that is the end, he's haunted by those thoughts. He said, Allah is telling you in this area, the psychology, the emotional state of those that do not adhere after those that deny him. Ibrahim Alayhi Salam knew that and that's why when they threatened him, we're gonna kill you. He said, You're you want me to fear your threats. And you don't want to feel the threats. I'm bringing you from Allah for a young lady, I have to be me. He said to the right, African, which of the two parties has more of a right to feel secure, you should be more afraid than me. Are you out

00:37:24--> 00:37:34

of your mind. So what you're a nation, I'm just one man, I'm in a muscle kind of mentality. And then the next idea comes in says, and Latina. Whenever you imagine we will meet.

00:37:37--> 00:38:01

Those who believe truly believed complete their faith, and they don't pollute, they don't contaminate their demand with any form of injustice, they have security, they will be rightly guided. And so the person would complete faith without any sort of injustice. He has complete security and guidance, and those that have lesser fee.

00:38:02--> 00:38:35

And they have some injustice, they have a lesser form of security, but they're still secured. But at the end of the day, the person who are locked locks his heart upon believing and growing towards the obtain, he gave up on him. It said more and more recognition of his greatness. This person feels secure, he enjoys his life, he looks at the world completely different. And we owe that to ourselves. And we owe that to our families so that our Deen is not subject to every threat, and every doubt and every desire and every confusion and every pressure, we owe that to ourselves.

00:38:37--> 00:38:47

You don't in this world, from the moment you wake up. And the last thing to do from the moment you get up in the morning till the moment you throw yourself on the bed at night.

00:38:48--> 00:38:50

You wake up and you haven't even

00:38:51--> 00:39:30

before that the alarm, and then your quick Facebook comment, and then a Twitter storm on your phone. And then a picture here. And then just one quick YouTube clip there. And then social commitments and then the piling up of tasks every time you think about them you say Oh man, I got so much more things to do. And think and all of that. If you stay like that in this rat race, there's no way around it Your heart will harden your heart will harden your imagine the leak, it will leak your conviction has to leak because you start thinking that these things have value and then I'm done with this. And then you're going to face another reality whether you believe in it or not whether

00:39:30--> 00:39:54

you're aware of it or not. Allah says Welcome to Luna Raja cannot tell whenever we you have come back to us now. All alone can you imagine see all alone you come back to us by yourself. Just as we created you the first time you don't even have your clothes anymore.

00:39:55--> 00:39:58

What are up to my phone when not tomorrow?

00:39:59--> 00:39:59

And

00:40:00--> 00:40:47

You left all that we put with you temporarily lifted behind you lift your money, you lift your kids, you lift your parents, you lift your knowledge on a slab that you couldn't use all in a moment its value will disappear, it will vanish, you will come to him, you have a long journey much longer than your life. And when you arrive after that very long journey after death, you will stand in front of him, and you will realize his greatness. Or you will realize his greatness verse, and you will live your life and death for a lot. And then you will arrive in front of him and see that Allah is more merciful. He's just as great in his mercy as everything else. He is more merciful than your wildest

00:40:47--> 00:40:51

imaginations. You know, the great granddaughter of a cassava daddy.

00:40:53--> 00:41:14

And I believe she was known as they told her after living her life for a month she was dying and she was fasting and told her drink, she said drink. She said, I've been fasting for 30 years, in recognition of Allah, his reward his greatness. asked me to meet him fasting. I'm gonna break my fast now. And then she recited the is

00:41:15--> 00:41:19

fully member of our coup de la.

00:41:23--> 00:41:53

She said to whom you say to them say you admitted tell the world. So who belongs everything in the heavens and everything in the earth? He has written upon himself mercy. It's enough because you can obligate a lot to be merciful. He told you that. I believed myself to be merciful. He did that. And then he told us about a second Listen, may Allah enable us to recognize his greatness and drink from this book? I believe for the sake of love. I mean, a lot of love.

00:41:57--> 00:41:58

A lot.

00:42:01--> 00:42:02

A lot.

00:42:04--> 00:42:05

A lot

00:42:07--> 00:42:08

of love, for love and

00:42:10--> 00:42:15

hope and luck is lost and laughter culinarily COVID me, Roger and
