I mean, which are cooler. Certainly what you could carry well back then I
mean, are crazy due to Allah praise Him we seek His help we seek his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil of our souls and our deeds. Whoever Allah guides, there is an optimist guide and Allah for Allah leads astray, there is no one to guide and I've ever witnessed and there is no God worthy of worship but Allah and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam is his slave servant, and messenger, glory be to you or Allah has no knowledge have we accept that what you have taught us in the two are the ongoing, the on wise, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless this gathering, and to make it sincere for his sake to give us an understanding of the normal Quran and implementation of
it in our life and make it an intercessor on our part on the Day of Judgment. Dear Brothers and Sisters,
we continue the tafsir of Surah Al Malik.
we had discussed
before the verses that speak about the creation of the seven heavens above each other, and
how this is showing the perfection of the creation of Allah subhanho wa taala.
He's referring there, to human beings to look up to the heavens, to see if they find any discrepancy in it or inconsistency. So what he's directing you to see there is that his creation is perfect.
And you'll see now that the next coming verses are directing you to observe something slightly different. There, he's telling you, the creation is perfect, The heavens are perfect. Look at them and try to find gaps and try to find inconsistencies and you won't be able to in a
usual challenging manner of
and this is, by the way, one of the things that attracts even to non Muslims. These challenges as we know the famous story of the brother who became Muslim, after he read Alif Lam in Delhi, Calcutta.
You know the story right? Now he read just the beginning. And as he starts any other book, right? He's looking at the novel Quran. He wants to see written man who's the author, it's not clear who's who's the author of this book. So he opens it up. There's no introduction, there's no anything. I mean, this is a book in which there is no doubt. Have you ever seen a book in your life starting out that way?
This was one of the main reasons he became Muslim. He said all other books start out by the author apologizing for his inconsistencies and his mistakes. And here's a book starting out by saying there isn't the hotel in this book. It is a perfect book.
Subhanallah an interesting observation, seeing it that way. And this is this is the way of
challenges people this is a book in which there is no doubt.
Similarly, here, Allah subhanaw taala is challenging all of humanity, look up at the heavens and see if you can find inconsistencies. And he calls on you to repeat that glance, look again, once and twice, and then he tells you look again three times on four times, keep looking, in other words, look as much as you want, you won't find anything restrictive. And when he says to
another attorney, what's the word?
It's also challenging statement, your vision will come back this grace and fatigue. In other words, don't even try. He already gave you the conclusion. And if you really tried it and we shouldn't try it and we should apply the the words of Allah subhanaw taala and try it and see your vision will come back disgrace because you will not find any gaps or inconsistencies. And it will come back for thing it will be tired. You keep looking and you're trying to say something, you cannot and eventually you
look back and your vision is tired. It is the perfection of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala. Brothers and sisters, it is also interesting how Allah azza wa jal is calling on Muslims and non Muslims and the world at large to look and to start looking horizontally, start looking vertically.
You and I, and people are used to looking just upon what is in dunya. And it is metaphorically, representative of people just looking at this worldly life, that's all. But when you look up,
you're looking for something else. You're looking for the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala you're looking to see the marvels of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala how many Muslims nowadays look up?
Especially in our world today, and our living in the western civilized societies in the cities, we no longer live out in the rural areas, right. So all we see around us usually are tall buildings, signs of the hour.
And these buildings, to a large extent, are not allowing us to make up.
How, when is the last time you looked up? Really?
Now if you look basically.
But you might think
it's been a long time I haven't looked at the sky. I haven't looked in the heavens. Allah azza wa jal is telling me to look at the heavens, because it is one of the greatest signs and indications of Allah's greatness and magnificence, the heavens and the earth, Allah azza wa jal said, as we know,
help in us, the creation of the heavens and the earth is greater than the creation of people of humanity, this great creation of Allah subhanaw taala he said it in the other solar right and took
right to the end of the verses that are you greater in creation or the evidence that Allah azza wa jal built, look up at the sky and see the magnificence of Allah subhanaw taala through the magnificence of what he created, and look at the sky and ponder and deliberate and this is part of the way of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he used to look at the heavens and he used to ponder and deliberate and the Hadith tells us that Prophet Muhammad Rasul Allah on us together 4pm he would get up in the middle of the night, he would go out and look at the heavens, as you should, as Allah azza wa jal commanded, and he would recite the verses from where,
from what sorta
right, in the
book, The Laughing lady will not lie.
How pertinent the glands of Prophet Muhammad salah, and his recitation of these verses, indeed, there isn't the creation of the heavens and the earth, there are verses and signs for those of intellect. So this is how we should be and this is an indication to me to stop looking at the worldly life and to think about the afterlife and to ponder and deliberate and this is really a form of worship brothers and sisters, that we have, to a large extent, neglected, pondering and deliberation when's the last time you just went alone? Just to demonstrate over the, the marvels of Allah subhanaw taala in his creation, and notwithstanding the seven heavens above
me in a shape on you're watching Bismillah?
and we have certainly beautified denarius, the nearest heaven with lamps are you stars, and have made from them what is thrown at the devils and have prepared for them the punishment of the Blaze?
Brothers and sisters,
as the previous verses, were pointing and directing our attention to the perfection of the creation of Allah azza wa jal. Now he's directing you to the beauty of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala. And those as you know are different for something may be perfect, but it is not necessarily beautiful, something may not be inconsistent, but it may not necessarily be decorated or beautified Allah azza wa jal beautified the heavens with the stars and indeed they are decoration for the heavens right.
He says welcome Vienna Salah and
you when you look up at the sky, imagine if there weren't
the stars would be quite different, right? The stars are truly one of the beautifying factors of the heavens one summer at Dunleavy Masabi. Notice he mentioned a summer of dunya, the nearest heaven, and this is why I told you that this is a possible interpretation and According to some scholars have said that this is referring to Asana, dunya, meaning that everything we are seeing this is all part of a Salah dunya, the nearest heaven only, and the seven heavens above our
knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala, the most knowledgeable, who knows what is above this, who knows what is beyond the universe, every time
astronomers went out, and they thought they had gone far enough. And then they discovered that there is still much more, and they keep discovering further and further stars and further and further galaxies. This universe is just something else. And when I think Wallahi about the fact that there is a spaceship that has been moving in space, since I was born, really, it is staggering. You know, this right?
Voyager, Voyager One and two, they were launched in 77. When I was born, it has been traveling in space until now, for the last 30 years Allahu Akbar. And it is it is only discovering more and more of the universe and sending back information and pictures and so on. And now, astronomers are saying or they're theorizing that they are getting tools, like some edge of the universe and things like that. Subhanallah it's just it's amazing to think, I mean, this spaceship going as fast as it is, has been going for 30 years.
And still, it has not, probably has not been
traversed anything. The universe that Allah subhanaw taala created, really, it's mind boggling. It's something that we cannot fathom. And we cannot but Say Subhan Allah, Allah, Allah and Glory be to Allah subhanaw taala who has created this, so if all of these stars are part of the summer dunya then you can only imagine what is left. And this you may never, ever discover, so enjoy and ponder it in this dunya
and benefit from it.
In the other interpretation, that some of these stars may be from the higher heavens and as the lower Heavens are transparent, you are seeing it through that Allah Jota Allah Allah, what is the correct interpretation? Well, the IANA sama dunya we must be what we call them he called the Masada lapse, you may go by that.
As we usually do, lamps, they are lighting and decorating and beautifying the sky. It is interesting that some of today's scientists are now
they are saying what the Quran said 14 centuries ago.
Anyone can tell you that the stars are lighting the sky. It's it's no miracle. But when you think
that when you look at the the word, some of today's scientists are now using this very word, not lapse, but more correctly, something like a flashlight. And they are calling some of the oldest stars which are the quasars billions of light years away the brightest in the universe. You know, they call them they call them cosmic flashlights.
They're agreeing with the Quran. I didn't say the Quran agrees with them. They are agreeing with the Quran. They are or the Quran is corroborating what they're saying? If any, this is what they are discovering, because
the Quran is corroborating meaning they cannot corroborate the Quran. The Quran corroborate what you are saying. Because it is proof that what you're saying is correct because you agreed with it. And if you turn out to be wrong, the Quran remains right. And it will discover it in the future. But it's it's just interesting that they are using this phrase now. Subhan Allah, some of the brightest stars they call it cosmic flashlights. Why? Because of its brightness, and because they said, word by word, according to one of the astronomers in NASA, that it is illuminating everything across its path coming to us, and that this light is coming from millions of years. It is a cosmic flashlight
into the early universe.
What the universe
dunya Masabi this could be a reference to some of these older stars which people now call the quasars. Well dunya de Masabi Allah has to do militia and we have made them
and he says I started this is not very
let's call it backwards
they said stars
Yes, I use stars.
The stars are lamps are flashlights.
I'll give you a hint only stars
What else do you have in the heavens, planets.
Planets I also liked or not, they're not
the planets also like you can see it's like, it's not gaseous, but you can see it and there are times where they tell you now Mars, you can see and it is offered and so on. And it has a spotlight, Allah azza wa jal said, in sort of suffer in as a Yunus dunya busy Nathanael care work and so there, he also mentioned that he decorated the heavens with a decoration, but he mentioned kawaki planets, here he's seen the Masabi. So this can be a reference to the stars and the planets as well. Well, Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah, if we claim that indeed, the two terms in the Quran are not synonymous, if we claim that the terms are not synonymous, and planets mean something, and stars mean something,
and there is evidence, that is the case, if we look at and we'll come to it, and inshallah
we'll see if Allah gives us life Inshallah, we'll see some of the meanings that shows how the planets are differentiated from the stars. So, both of them are Masabi and they are a declaration for the sky or rather their decoration for the sky, the flashlight is another issue, right, but they are both decoration for the sky, as in the other night,
do when we share clean
and we have made
or we have made from them, what what is thrown at the devil's room and Michelle
This is a reference to the fact that the evil of the jinn who are trying to know of the news of the unseen from the heavens from the angels, they are trying to get that information and then they start throwing it to
their assistants who are the soothsayers and the magicians here in the dunya. And the thing is, they are not able to because what happens is Allah subhanaw taala throws at them a shooting star or you can call it a flame, okay as the other term also mentioned in the Quran,
whereby they are at least incapacitated from transmitting that information to the people below which are in the shelter. Even Kathy says, This is not referring to the stars themselves. Allah azza wa jal is not throwing the star
the devil but is throwing a part of it. And this is
a possible interpretation for what is happening or some flame being thrown from it.
The devil incapacitating him from transmitting that information which I don't know how to do. And this is why the famous CEO Paul Turner said that the stars are one of three or rather they are three things, they are a declaration for the heavens, they are
something that is thrown at the devils which incapacitate them and they are
a guidance for people right as then the other Surah were almost told us that
while I'm doing right, they are guided by the stars they use the stars for guidance. These are the only three benefits that we have for this
with the shell clean.
You can see the detail
of this issue from the other some of the Hadith. This one is from Sahifa hurry, it is narrated on the authority.
He says I was prophets Allah or send them said,
when Allah decrees some order in the heaven, the angels flooded their wings, indicating complete surrender to His saying, which sounds like chains being dragged on rock. And when the state of fear disappears, they ask each other, what has your Lord ordered. They say that he has said that which is true and just and here's the most high the Most Great, then the stealthy listeners devils gear this order, and the stealthy listeners are like this one over the other. Sofia Submariner demonstrated that by holding his hand upright and separating
the fingers, they are one above another, a stealthy listener here is a word, which he will convey to that which is below him, and the second will convey to that which is below the last of them will conveyed to the wizard or fourth pillar, sometimes a flame fire may strike the devil before he can convey it. And sometimes he may convey it before the flame fire strikes him. Whereupon the wizard adds to that word 100 lies that people will then say, didn t the magician tells such and such a thing on such and such date. So that magician is said to have told the truth, because of the statement which has been heard from the heavens. So when some of the Sahaba heard about Prophet
Muhammad, and he was saying that the sooth Sayers are liars and so on. And they said, but sometimes what they say, really comes through, but he was saying that this is not something that they do on their own. They are taking this love from their own talent, they're taking some of that information from the devil's the devil's usually will be destroyed or incapacitated from transmitting that information by the flames. And this is one of the functions of
the stars which
will do man and the shouting these flashlights are these labs, Allah azza wa jal has made something by which to throw at the levels to incapacitate them from transmitting information. There is also an interpretation but it is less popular, but some scholars have said that this meaning is when Allah will determine the sheltering, meaning child cleaning, it's
not an actual throwing, but that these stars that you see, this is something by which the sheltering of humanity, they use it to claim certain things about knowing the future, as with people who follow the stars, and they claim to know certain things and certain information by the stars and the constellations and things like that, right? We're gonna have a luminary shouting rejuven here meaning they are just
throwing things into the dark they are guessing they are, you know, conjecturing and all it is, is conjecture and surmise, and there is no reality in it, whereby they use the stars and of course, we know that the stars are not
behind anything that happens in this universe. This is good for Well, I have to be law, as in the famous Hadith, the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that, you know the people of Jamelia, they used to say, that rain came down to us because of such and such star and things of that nature, but there is that interpretation also.
So, not only will be will they be thrown up or a flame will incapacitate, they also will have the punishment of the Blaze in the hereafter. So, it is punishment in this race in the dunya and punishment in the hereafter.
And by the way, many scholars also said that
even before Prophet Muhammad Salah
stoned, if you will,
or stars or flames or cast at them. But in the time of Prophet Muhammad wa salam, the protection of the heavens became much better and much stronger. So it was a much stronger fortress, after the coming of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and there is a verse that supports this in Surah Jin when we get there in sha Allah
After dinner the home of a salutary Allah azza wa jal protects us from a sigh of Osiris to be
and the blazing fire of hellfire. That was one of Allah protect us from it.
Why do you let the Inaka phobia be him either Bucha
mercy, and for those who disbelieved in their Lord is the punishment of Hell. and wretched is the destination.
I was part of Allah is telling us that not only the shayateen not only the Devils of the jinn, and they are the ones who go up and they try to hear the information that is being transmitted and so on. Not only are they destined for hellfire, but the disbelievers also let it lead in a CAFO. So this is referring not to the the the shayateen of Genesis referring to the sheltering of the disbelievers who are destined for Hellfire forever within the vena cava will be up to him.
What makes him so their punishment also will be hellfire, and wretched is the destination.
This is a reality.
But even the disbelievers
may to a certain extent, the only one be benefited by
don't immediately assume
that hiding these things from the disbelievers is a good thing. No, there has to be read into the heap, there has to be giving hope. And at the same time warning, and Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam warned. And I remember one of the the non Muslims, they asked me straight if I do not become a Muslim? And if I don't do and if I don't believe and so on and so forth.
Am I destined to be punished?
Can I answer other than Yes.
You have to this is what our Islam tells us. By the way, this was a guiding factor to him.
There are people who may find that who may benefit from that don't immediately assume that they will not when he lives in a cafe with him.
And mostly, it's scary. You and I maybe are not moved by these verses because we hope and we are all hope that Allah subhanaw taala will have mercy on us and send us to paradise and protect us from hellfire. But when you think for a minute, that my abode may be eternal hellfire well
it's it's shaking. It'll shake, it will make them tremble if
they are to be guided to the religion of Allah subhanaw taala
Johanna Robinson Massoud.
here for when they are thrown into it, they hear from it a dreadful inhaling while it boils up my brothers and sisters, and fire is not something to joke about. Hellfire is serious. And Hellfire is the scariest thing that exists in this dunya and everything that you see that is scary in this dunya pales in comparison to the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala and everything that you see in this dunya which you consider punishment or torture pales in comparison to the punishment of hellfire. You will not even compare between the two. And if you are to count and enumerate the punishment in hellfire and compare it to Paradise, you will see two completely different worlds. Allah azza wa jal
tells us clearly, and this is one of the things the characteristics of hellfire, he says when they are thrown into it, they hear from it and dreadful inhaling while it boils up, send me
some of this concept of sin like this sound,
or inhaling to the sound of a donkey. The sound of a donkey
repulsive sound as they are inhaling Okay, and they described it as a sound that comes from the chest. This inhaling comes from hellfire when they are thrown into it, and it pulls them they are dragged into it.
they will hear this dreadful inhaling in it Hellfire is alive my dear brothers and sisters and this is what shows you that some of the Hadith as we'll see. Hellfire is alive
Hellfire is something else. The size of hellfire we know 70 years of stone falls until it reaches the depths of hellfire. Hellfire is to accommodate the trillions of human beings who disbelieved in Allah subhanaw taala and who deserved his wrath and His punishment. So what is this Hellfire pulled by 5 billion angels on the day of judgment and when it is brought
and people see it.
One of the characteristics it's dreadful, dreadful inhalation. Another dreadful characteristic is its exhalation it's the fifth and this they can hear from far away as Allah subhanaw taala set
a tone in McAllen marine Sammy.
If it saw the
Hellfire saw them from afar location,
they will hear from it.
Right? Similar to this irritation Right? Was the fear and exhalation exhales and exhalation brothers and sisters that will cause all of humanity to drop to its knees. Even the prophets peace be upon them all. Even say Ibrahim will drop to his knees upon seeing this. Ask Allah subhana wa Tada for protection. Save him Allah you set up. This is something else. This is beyond our imagination. Let hellfire and let the fire of hell fire. Let it move you and let it wake up
our dead hearts into fearing Allah subhanaw taala and working to protect ourselves from hellfire. Here we hear about the dreadful inhalation when they are thrown into it. And we hear about it's boiling we're here to fall.
Hammer Allah said that this is like the boiling of a pot.
It's like they are buoyant like peas boil in a pot. This is how they will boil in hellfire Hellfire is alive. As you heard in the previous atomic McCann in mind. In the Hadith, the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is authentic. He mentioned to us that Hellfire on the Day of Judgment will
drag out its neck and neck will come out from hellfire and it will hear and it will see.
So it is alive. It is boiling. It is inhaling and it is exhaling. It sees and adheres My dear brothers and sisters, what have you and I have done to protect ourselves from the punishment of hellfire when Hellfire when you know it when you know it. Hellfire will not allow you to sleep.
If we really realize what Hellfire is, and we think that we may be thrown for a second for an instant in hellfire, wala heed, it will not allow us to sleep. As Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said, a person dipped in hellfire who had all of the pleasant pleasures of this dunya and all of the blessings of this dunya just one dip in hellfire will make them forget everything. Allah
brothers and sisters, what are you doing? What have we done to protect ourselves from the punishment of Allah Subhana Allah and Allah is the most just the Most Merciful. The ones who are being flown into that Hellfire are only those who deserve it as we'll see. Either. Sophie her seven year old or her Shaheed we're here to fool it is boiling and it is waiting for them
It almost bursts with rage, every time a company is thrown into it. It's Keeper's ask them that they're not come to you a warner.
It almost knocked bursts. But it is it's almost separating, it is coming apart. What the scholars said that this means they can do can they can they yes means it is separating from itself. Why? Because of its high yield. Its range. Its spirit painted at seeing the Kufa it
irritated disbelievers. It's irritated because of the wrath of its Lord.
Allah subhanaw taala on this day, he will never be angrier than on this day itself will separate.
It is separating in rage because of the rage of Allah subhanaw taala when it sees the disbelievers, how fire itself hates what Allah subhanaw taala hates, and because it hates what Allah azza wa jal hates, when it sees the disbelievers when it sees the despots and tyrants and those who love the worship of Allah subhanaw taala itself because of its range, it is almost as if it is going to separate look at this description. This is what some of the Arabs need this is how they used to describe a person's range. And it is out of exaggeration. And they would say that a person was so enraged, right and angry and irritated that he split apart and part of him went to the heavens and
the other went down to the earth.
This is the meaning. It is so irritated and enraged on this day, that it is almost separating from itself Picabo, Campania,
Allahu Akbar, because of the wrath of its Lord, and because it is irritated and annoyed and enraged by those who disbelieved in Allah Subhana Allah, and who left his worship and who punished people and who oppressed people who didn't help people and who didn't
worship Allah subhanaw taala and who associated partners with Allah subhanaw taala and this is the case with all of the creation of Allah azza wa jal, which glorifies Allah subhanaw taala, including paradise and hellfire, because all Creation submits to Allah subhanaw taala it is only the disbelievers of humanity and jinn, who left the worship of Allah subhanaw taala otherwise all Creation
glory glorifies Allah subhana wa Hanna and prostrates to Allah subhanaw taala and here we see the example even of hellfire Subhan Allah being irritated with the disbelievers brothers and sisters.
It is almost to show you if you are angry with hellfire, don't be angry with hellfire. Be angry at yourself and be angry at those who deserve the hellfire. Otherwise, Hellfire is angry for the anger of its Lord and hellfire hates the disbelievers. And this is a good thing.
But Allah subhanaw taala out of his justice made it an abode for those who deserve it for the wrongdoers And for the disbelievers who left Allah subhanaw taala and didn't work for this day and therefore deserve it. This punishment Deckard with hammer he has
brothers and sisters in
the Hadith, or it is a narration on the authority of Lebanon. I live in Germany, the poverty has narrated this other than curfew said that the
chain or the status of this hadith is good and the chain of narration is one that is acceptable. He said that a person will be taken he will be dragged to hellfire. Hellfire will
it's almost like it will close upon itself. And then Allah subhanaw taala will ask you, what is wrong with you?
And it will say that he is seeking your protection from me.
So he will say, Let my slave servant go, Allah.
Let my slave server go. And then another person will be dragged to the fire. And he will say, Oh, Lord, this is not what this was not my estimate of you. In other words, he was thinking that Allah azza wa jal will treat him better. So Allah will tell him, what did you think? And he said, I thought that your mercy will compensate me it will include me,
Dasani Rama, so he will say, Let my slave servant go. And then a person will be dragged to the fire and the Hellfire will inhale a great inhalation
to take him and then it will exhale another explanation, which will cause every single human being to be afraid of it. May Allah azza wa jal protecting me from the Hellfire May Allah subhanaw
Allah guide us through doing what protects us from hellfire.
If this the punishment of hellfire is not enough for those people, here you have another great punishment, and that is there regret caused by the question of the angels to them to ask them, every time a company is thrown into it, the keepers would ask that they're not come to you a warner. Can you imagine this the the situation of the disbelievers on this day, when they are hearing this and they say to themselves, Woe to us how wrong we were, how astray we were. And here, this is our destination now.
They will be asked to come the deal. The angels will ask them, this is brothers and sisters. If you want to understand it in another way, look at it in the dunya when you did something, you are so regretful
and you are feeling downright awful.
And then someone comes to you and they are speaking to you. And they keep hammering and saying how can you do that? How did you do that? How gracious you are, how awful you are? What an egregious mistake this is, you are already feeling awful. And that person is only adding to your regret. Can you imagine how you would feel?
This is nothing compared to the Day of Judgment? How will the disbelievers feel
that their eternal abode is this? And not only that, the angels are condemning them and they're asking them this question did not award or come to you.
And they know full well. The Wonders came to them. And they don't have any option to reply.
Kirby, they will say yes, a warner had come to us, they have no option brothers and sisters, they will say yes, warner had come to us. But we denied and said Allah has not sent down anything, you are not in great error.
They will say yes. Can they say anything else? Can they lie? They cannot say the truth. Yes. So Allah, a warner had come to us, but we know
Allah has Watson doubt anything. You are not in great.
Working to us. What did they say they denied? They denied look at the disbelief and the arrogance of people who are making claims they have no information about and they have no proof for they denied the messengers who came to them. And not only that, they were so bold, as to say Allah has not sat down.
What are these people who came to you? Did they not come? And did they not warn you?
They had the audacity to say to those prophets and messengers, you are not in great error, people that Allah azza wa jal chose for you out of humanity to guide you. And you say to them, you are in great error. Can you at least have some intellect? And
just put the possibility that maybe they are correct. One poet
who was not pious by the way,
but when he they only thought of it logically, he said, If I don't believe or if I
if I believe in them,
they are correct,
then I would have gained everything there is to gain.
And if they are not correct, I wouldn't have lost anything. So I might as well follow them.
But if I don't follow them, then there is I would have lost everything and there is everything to lose.
So why not follow them in the first place? And if they turn out to be incorrect, then the consequences at least are not great loss. So didn't you put the possibility that maybe they have come to you with the truth, they denied and they said you are not but in great error. And you can imagine the situation of the prophet or messenger all around this island here. Salatu Salam
I'm calling his people to guidance, his heart, full of compassion for his people, only wanting to save them from the hellfire. And they are saying to him, You are not but in great error.
It makes the heart of the messenger bleed. We know this was the case with Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. We know this was the case with the prophets before him peace be upon them all. So even the universe, Allah your salaam became so angry, he went out to the sea, of course, his life and we the lives of the messengers were to see that people be saved of the judgment. And they are saying, they are denying and saying you are not but in great error.
And they will say, If only we had been listening or reasoning, we would not be the companions of the Blaze. Allah.
Did you see now brothers and sisters, that they themselves will realize how long they were? They themselves will realize how sinful they were. We mentioned this recently
that they are fully aware of the Day of Judgment of how long it seems sinful they were.
And this is one of those examples. They will say they will be saying, If only we had been listening or reasoning, we would not be among the companions of the Blaze. But you listen, you heard that out of the messenger. You heard the invitation to Allah subhanaw taala. But there's a difference between one who listens with the news. And one who listens with their heart. They heard it with their ears. But that's it didn't go beyond this.
Send sense didn't go to their hearts. What can lacuna smart.
know more than even you and me
how much they were in error.
Because they now realize
that they were criminals, they were criminals.
Because they abandoned the rights of Allah subhanaw taala and for their whole life, and they denied the messengers that came to them. And they are the ones who are feeling this regret, God willing you and I will not regret I hope in sha Allah. But they will be in full regret. And they will realize how much they were. Were called.
Back on his side, they know it even more than you admit. Whenever brothers and sisters now if we
cast any doubt into your mind about whether you are on the truth or not. Look at this.
Whenever you are hearing a disbeliever arguing
the shaytaan flows something into your heart.
Did you ever feel it?
Did you ever feel it something something it's almost like a book in your heart? What can local non as well. Just remember that these people will be saying on the Day of Judgment. If only we heard, if only we listened
and we used our reasoning, we would not be of the people of the Hellfire. You will find that whatever in your heart is gone. Because you are going you are fast forwarding to the day of judgment to realize
their situation. It means what they are throwing here in this dunya at you. This is just part of what the Shavon is throwing at you. But in reality they are in the greatest error. And this helps you to realize it. When you think about the Day of Judgment. They themselves. This is the amazing part, sisters, that Allah azza wa jal is making them admitted they will be sacred. Imagine the person in front of you who is arguing and seems to be fully convinced of their opinion. They if they continue that way, on the Day of Judgment, they will be saying to themselves whoa to me. If only I heard and listened and reason I will not be of the people of the Hellfire or the blaze.
If only we listen and reason we will not be among the companions of the Blaze.
and they will admit their sin. So it is alienation for the companions of the place.
So they have admitted their sin, and no confession is greater than this confession, and they have confessed on the day when confession is futile and when regret is useless, brothers and sisters, if you are to blame yourself, and if you want to confess to Allah subhanaw taala that you have not done enough, and that you have sinned, and you have wronged yourself in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala regret now, only that regret my dear brother and my dear sister, is useful. Regret on the Day of Judgment is futile. Don't be like the disbelievers regret now because only that regret will help you in sha Allah to rectify your condition. But regret on that day will not they will have finally
confessed and admitted their sin and it is part of
the justice of Allah subhanaw taala that he has made themselves witnesses to the air
because now they cannot say anything. They themselves are saying if we had reasoned,
we would not be the people of the place. It means they have
accused themselves of wrong, of lack of intellect, of lack of reasoning, of arrogance, they're accusing themselves, they have admitted their sin.
So it means Allah azza wa jal has not wronged you. Allah azza wa jal has not done an atom's weight of injustice to you when he threw you into the depths of hellfire, but it is you who deserve this, and you are confessing and you who are admitting or disbeliever, that you are the one who did.
What made you deserve this punishment? It is not Allah subhanaw taala it is your own deeds. And Allah azza wa jal did not leave you. You just confessed the verse before that Allah sent you a word and Allah Subhana Allah said Lama Levine
did Allah azza wa jal is not to punish anyone until a messenger is sent to them. So the messengers came to you and you admitted it.
And here you are confessing your sin will be the
hub site is an Arabic word to mean complete alienation.
Alienation or distance, it means be far away, be cast away as far as possible from the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala and they will be cast into the depths of the Hellfire wants to be loved, and they will be punished in it forever. And then
that's not all. They're alive. They're eating and they're drinking and they're
they are alive, but at the same time, they're not alive from malaria movie when they are not alive Allah in this is no life, but at the same time they are not dead and every time their skin burns, Allah azza wa jal gives them fresh skins to take the punishment further, and they are going between hellfire and the hot water. They eat, they eat.
They eat this tree, the thorns come in their throats and it makes their throats bleed, and they are eating this. It does not satisfy their hunger. And after they eat this, they only want to drink and they go and they drink the boiling hot water and then they want to eat again. So they come back and they eat and they go back and they drink the boiling hot water and they have hot water over their heads, which makes their intestines come together. Subhanallah Caliban, Allah azza wa jal protect your immune from brothers and sisters were lucky no one with any morsel of intellect, leaves Hellfire or does not work to protect themselves from hellfire. The wise one is the one who runs away
from hellfire and from the punishment of Allah to the words of Allah to the paradise of Allah subhanho wa Taala the scholars of the learned and the pious they used to remind themselves with help I don't say this is the abode of the disbelievers who knows how you will die and in what state you will be. Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam say you have
one overturns the hearts keep our hearts forever on this religion. You don't know. Maybe you have done sins that warrants that you will be punished in hellfire and pure
To find when you
protect yourself from the Hellfire even if it is with a morsel of a date, Hellfire used to wake them up from sleep.
When he was reciting even Surah, Dylan who has, he could not finish it, he could not finish the sooner when he comes to the part speaking about hellfire, he could not finish it, he would go back and start over from the beginning of the surah. And he cannot continue he cannot finish it, because he is drowning in his his, his tears.
The used to remember it, it is as if we used to see it in front of them, and therefore they ran away from it. Therefore, when they used to recite the verses of Allah subhanaw taala. They used to recite it and it was almost like it came to them. It was so real for them.
They did everything in their life to protect themselves from it, they sometimes would get to a state of fear and crying.
Their families would feel for them, like glasses.
And many of the scholars and the Companions, peace be upon them. They used to feel the same, say not
as strong as he was.
He was strong in his religion, he was strong with people. But with ALLAH SubhanA wa jahana He was the most humble. He used to have the dark lines on his face, because of his weeping at night, remembering the hereafter and remembering the hellfire and hoping for the paradise of Allah subhanaw taala and he is the one who said Subhanallah that if it was set to all of humanity, all of you are going to paradise except one.
He used to say, I would fear that I am that one, Allahu Akbar.
Because they realized their shortcomings with respect to their worship of Allah subhanaw taala. They realize their shortcomings with respect to the magnificence of Allah azza wa jal and the greatness of his right upon them. May Allah azza wa jal forgive you and me and may Allah subhanaw taala protect us from hellfire May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us permanent protection from the Hellfire May Allah
the ability to visualize and understand what Hellfire is so that we can do what warrants that Allah subhanaw taala protects us from it and Allah azza wa jal makers, like the Companions, about whom Prophet Muhammad wa salam told us that they are ones who are remembering hellfire and the angels when Allah azza wa jal Ask the angels what are my slave servants seeking refuge in Me from? They will say they seek refuge in You from your hellfire. And he will say to the angels, did they see the hellfire and the angels will reply No, Oh Allah, He said, if they saw it, then they would be much more keen on protecting themselves from it. So may Allah azza wa jal makers of those that Allah
subhanaw taala protect us from hellfire and may Allah azza wa jal make our abode the eternal paradise Baraka Luffy calm welcome hamdulillah Hello behind me
any questions or comments for the sisters?
a case gets us in what case do you have against us possibly
how do you start argument How do you cast any doubt and it's
I tried reiterating this point a lot and Bala
avoid going into some of the details of
the never understand that. You're trying to convince them of four wives.
Muslims don't don't understand four wives will lie. Those slums understand it. Muslims are saying how and why and what and so on. You expect them to understand be realistic
and they are
things that are not immediately obvious to them, there are things they cannot understand there are things that they have lived their whole life with. This girl has seen her mother
for the last 10 years, going out with very little clothes on.
This is normal to her. Can you change this in an instant, you cannot. This is what I agree that
this is the difference. So that's why you need try to avoid this unless you see that this person is very much influenced by these things, okay? By the some of the social justice of Islam, and some of these arguments, and they accept your logic, then you can use that, but otherwise stick to the principles of Islam, like the mother said, go to the aqidah What is your problem that Allah azza wa jal is the one and only and he has no partners, and his no equal, they cannot say anything. What is your problem? When we say the prophets and the messengers all came with the same religion?
They came with the religion of
declaring the Oneness of Allah, and that Allah has no partners. And the differences between the religions are minor differences according in terms of the Sharia in terms of some of the application some of the jurisprudence of the religion, but the essence of the religion is one, what is your problem with that? They cannot find fault. They say, Well, we believe the same. No, but you believe that prophets and the messengers, peace be upon them all, are sinful, and they they committed some of the greatest sins. They say, Well, yeah, that's what the Bible says, or that's what our holy book says.
And I say, if I said that about one of your best friends, you would exonerate your best friend of this act, and you're not exonerating your puppet of this act Subhan Allah,
clear things about the purity of the aqidah they can never argue with otherwise, then argue with you about women's rights and Islam, and four wives and terrorism, and jihad, and all of the things that they see in the reality, bring them back to the essence of the Dawa the essence of our understanding of the major principles and leave some of these details, but
they can never argue with that. And I've tried it several times. And they can't argue this, and that's why they're argumentative. They'll keep taking you back to the poor ones.
They won't stay with the part of the Agreda and the credence, they'll take you back to that.
You cannot understand this. I'll try to explain it to them. I won't hide it. But
I also tried to take them to that which is more important. Allah azza wa jal is not going to ask you, why didn't you marry more than one wife? The law is gonna ask you, why did you associate partners with him? And why did you not declare His Oneness and so on.
And your punishment will be based on the fact that you disbelieved in him, and this believed in the messenger that came
to watch this one,
whenever you discuss with Alec,
come to this common point. Exactly. That's
Id idea is that has come to one word and that is to declare the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala and not to associate
couldn't have been done?
Once people as profitable Amazon seller was selling the authentic honey, they will be tested.
And based on that test, they will either be taken to paradise or alpha. And this test is the summary of the test that we went through in this dunya and Allah azza wa jal is most knowledgeable how that occurs, and he doesn't do any wrong. Anybody even an atom's Wait, they are tested. Okay, and it's but some of our testing here and they will then deserve either paradise for alpha
keep remembering that Allah is the Most Merciful. Well, if, when you read these verses and the shaper, pokes you and tells you how can Allah do this, or how can how can the punishment be so severe and so on? Looking at the other way, Allah is the
Boost merciful, He is more. When we say this, it's almost like I have more mercy towards this person. I'm wondering about that, then Allah, Allah is a million times more merciful towards his lip service, the new who you are claiming to be sympathetic for.
And yet he deserves that punishment. Oh, that means his sin is so great. That's the way to look. Is Allah so merciful?
And yet they deserve the hellfire. And this is why like in the other am
in sort of from the angels will say masala cuckoo PISA
what is it that made you to deserve Sokka?
Allah is the Most Merciful.
The slightest thing you could have done to save yourself from Empire. And this is why as in the Hadith the Prophet Muhammad
Allah azza wa jal will ask the disbeliever. If you can save yourself by
ransoming yourself with with all of the goals of the world and so on, he will say yes, so Allah would run some myself, he would say you are a lawyer, I asked you for something what simpler to worship may not associate any partners, and you didn't do it?
Right. He was asked to do something much easier, and he didn't, or she didn't. And therefore they deserved that punishment. And then they are claiming they would move the world to protect themselves on the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala you are like,
Like anything else, you ask your child to do something,
something simple, and they don't do it.
And then they are regretful and you punish them. And then they say to you
know what, I would have done something 100 times harder than that. No, I asked you to do something, but you certainly didn't do it. You should have done it. And of course, to Allah.
Allah protect us. Well, this is just this is this is scratching the surface, there's so much more. And believe me.
If you don't know it, it's a problem.
And it's a clear answer to why you cannot visualize it and you don't know the details. The details of the details are are in the Quran and the Sunnah, the precise details, you can talk about all of the punishment of hellfire and many of the the torments of Albert, this is how you will visualize it.
You visualize a country you want to because you went and saw it, or because it was precisely described to you. This is what's happening with him fine.
Why did he describe it for us? He could have said Fear the hellfire and great punishment and a great torment without any description.
Would it have been real for you know, why is it not real for us, because we don't even know the description.
Nor the description. Read it completely. Listen to some of the chef Anwar Baraka Luffy has his series on the hereafter. Listen to it. Listen to these the summary of the tunnels of hellfire to the name the blessings of paradise and so listen to whatever you can
know with all
the journey starts after you know all the details. Then there is another journey for Hellfire to become something alive for you. Until then, you haven't even started. You don't even know what it is or what the time is. You don't know what the pleasures of paradise are, know precisely what they are, understand it and remember it and then you will find it will come alive to you. And as you read the Quran and remember the Hadith and as you are praying and you are able to visualize it and so on that that is what will inshallah increase your your humility, and you're hoping for Paradise and you're running away from hellfire.
We know that
this punishment is the pointing of the brain.
It requires us to be myself and don't forget to really look at ourselves. I told this before in a forensic capacity.
You know what we need to do to avoid even that one second.
Disregard things that we consider maybe minor
simply because it may look minor.
Of course not.
That's why you remember the Hadith mazing Hadith, one
of the happiest person in the whole world was never seen any problems or any predicaments. One dip he forgets his whole life
what is this punishment something else. And by the way, and this is the way of the self also they used to make Hellfire reality for themselves by touching something hot.
put your finger in the fire
don't hurt yourself, but
you'll immediately see that you cannot even put your finger in the fire or turn the hot water on in the shower. Walla
Walla, you will It will change your mindset it will change your perception you cannot stand
for a few seconds under boiling water in the shower.
And this is just the the Hellfire of this is the fire up there is not even fire it's just hot water much less the 70 multiples in the Hellfire of Alaska and all the punishments that we were discussing the the the the hot water being poured over one's head from which the the the the intestines come together. It's just it's beyond us really Wallah and we cannot walk. You cannot stand a second and hellfire therefore protect yourself from hellfire even with half a beat. Protect yourself from hellfire
with everything that you can
and make a reality for yourself and stop killing yourself
one of the one of the great scholars
I mentioned him to you before
they allow the one about Prophet
said to him a prophet Muhammad wa salam had seen you he would have loved you.
The same saw what you saw
something in a barbecue and that was being in a barbecue. He fell unconscious.
The that he imagined himself in that situation.
He fell unconscious.
And they had to
go after Him and to try to treat him and put cold water on its face and hola como. These people? They they lived it, they they, they saw it they visualized it, they understood it. They they and they live their life. For paradise and for running away and fleeing from hellfire. Flee to Allah, free from the password of Allah to the Mercy of Allah.
Allah azza wa jal protectors
