Allah Allah Allah Allah has a harness on you which he could carry with us semana pasado

00:00:33 --> 00:00:41

Allahu Allah, Allah will Quran and Alina Halawa mean we know we'll be here today, kinda Allah, masha fienile Mattia Mattia, I mean,

we praise a lot of Lady and we send prayers and blessings upon the final messenger, the Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his noble family, right his companions and all those that follow them until the day of judgment.

00:00:55 --> 00:01:33

We say as the angel said, In reply to Allah Subhana Allah glory be to you or Allah, no knowledge have we accept that what you have taught us? Indeed you are the All Knowing the all wise, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless this gathering, and to make it sincere for his sake. And I ask Allah subhanaw taala to reward you, and that he brings us together the highest of paradise as those who loved each other for Allah subhanaw taala with the Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the martyrs and the truthful ones and the scholars and all of the pious and sha Allah, we ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to bless us with this

00:01:34 --> 00:01:47

to enlighten us with this Quran to put light and to guide us to the straight path with this Quran and to make us of those who come to this boron and implemented

00:01:49 --> 00:01:54

brother brothers and sisters we continue with the serial Surah Mulk.

00:01:58 --> 00:02:00

Allah was Ty says well that was

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


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

family machine okay.

00:02:07 --> 00:02:09

What did he

00:02:12 --> 00:02:14

she said we

00:02:16 --> 00:02:27

most definitely. That is one who walks fallen on his face better guided, or one who walks erect on a straight path

00:02:30 --> 00:02:32

after Allah subhanaw taala

00:02:34 --> 00:02:35

in the previous verses

00:02:38 --> 00:02:41

directed the speech to the kuffar

00:02:43 --> 00:02:47

telling them and reminding them that no one can support them

00:02:48 --> 00:02:51

and be an aid to them, if Allah subhanaw taala

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

or the community to them besides Allah subhanho wa Taala and that they're thinking that is merely because of their arrogance, and because they are deluded

00:03:04 --> 00:03:15

and also reminding them that if Allah azza wa jal stopped that provision, who will provide for them and who will be able to provide for them? No one but Allah subhanho wa taala. This is

00:03:16 --> 00:03:22

a very important reminder for people who do not live these ideas and understand them.

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

And then Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:03:27 --> 00:03:30

In this, the following verse

00:03:33 --> 00:03:56

gives an example, a beautiful metaphor, to show the difference between a believer and a disbeliever. You can see all of the discussion all of these verses, they are all concerning. Speaking to some of the disbelievers trying to correct some of the ideas concerning their creed and their faith and so on.

00:03:59 --> 00:04:24

When he says FM and Yom Shem Kibana Allah wa G, this is an example he is given. Otherwise, it's not necessarily a reality. The example is one who is walking, falling on his face, this can give you many different meanings, and the scholars of the field have given some of these different meanings, yet machine will keep falling on his face, this is

00:04:25 --> 00:04:32

maybe the best that they can do to translate it otherwise you cannot find all of the meanings in that will keep that can mean

00:04:33 --> 00:04:35

literally falling on his face,

00:04:36 --> 00:04:56

walking and falling on their face. This is one minute. Another meaning could be leaving in their walk leaving downward so that their faces almost it's almost as if they are falling to their face but not necessarily falling on their face.

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

These two meanings, sir

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

have several other meetings. What could it mean if someone is walking and falling on their face? Number one, it could mean they are blind.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:13

Number two, it can mean that

00:05:14 --> 00:05:16

the road they are walking on

00:05:17 --> 00:05:25

is not straight. And it is not smooth. It is rough. And it is rocky and it's going right and left.

00:05:27 --> 00:05:42

And therefore, they are constantly falling on their face, they walk a little bit and then they fall and so on. Another meaning could be that they are leaning downwards, because the road itself is not straight, and they are trying to find

00:05:43 --> 00:05:45

trying to find the correct and the straight path.

00:05:46 --> 00:06:03

All of these meanings apply like your brothers and sisters to the disbeliever. The disbeliever walks in this way, it's a beautiful example. The disbeliever is walking in their life in this fashion. They are walking with their face downward.

00:06:04 --> 00:06:24

They're not walking straight, they're not walking proud. They're walking, disgraced, they're walking confused. They're so confused in life, don't ever think that they are not. And this is one of those verses that chose this, that they are ultimately confused, no matter how much they show you certainty in their speech.

00:06:25 --> 00:06:36

And concerning their faith and their creed. And their understanding, believe me, the foundation they are standing on is extremely wobbly. And if you are firm,

00:06:37 --> 00:06:40

and you use firm arguments, you will shake that foundation.

00:06:41 --> 00:06:52

And this is one of those meanings. Because they walk in the first place falling on their face. They are walking on a path disgraced, downward.

00:06:54 --> 00:07:02

They are confused, they're not sure about the past, they're trying to find their way. You can imagine a person maybe in the midst of the jungle,

00:07:03 --> 00:07:20

and it's dark, and they can't quite find their way. They're walking through sometimes some bushes, they hit a tree, then they they trip on a rock and then they fall and they get back up and they keep going. This is the way they are going in life. Therefore don't be surprised

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

that they enter a new world when they do find Islam if they do find Islam. It's almost like it's it's a whole world has been opened up and lit for them they were removed from darkness into light. And this is when their work

00:07:39 --> 00:08:03

changes into the other one that we are coming to otherwise they're walking, fallen on their face, confused. The road is not clear. The road for disbelievers not clear the path is not clear. Ask them where are you going? Why are you here? What are you doing here? What are your goals? What are you? What do you want to achieve? Do you believe in the afterlife? What will happen after they don't know they don't understand these things.

00:08:05 --> 00:08:20

As we've mentioned many times before, they know the things which are apparent which are in front of them which they can touch. But things like this, they cannot quite understand. Even though they may be some of the world's geniuses, they are in some of these physical things, but you

00:08:22 --> 00:09:09

and you may not be as intellectual or as smart as them, you can teach them these meetings. And when you talk to them about these meanings, believe me, it's like talking to a child, one of our children, who was firm and there are people who can teach some of these scholars about death, and the afterlife, and what they expect, when they are going to die and so on and how we are supposed to live and how we are supposed to look at the world around us they know so much about the world around them, but the most important step they have not been able to take yet which is to see who is behind all of us. But our children may be able to tell them that I know Matt and ignorant illiterate no

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

matter may be able to teach them that

00:09:12 --> 00:09:19

will kill banana witchy. So they are working and they are confused and their path is not clear.

00:09:20 --> 00:09:21


00:09:23 --> 00:09:34

in the other meaning they may be actually falling because it's a rocky path. It's not a smooth path, and therefore they will go and hit several obstacles.

00:09:35 --> 00:09:41

They will hit the first obstacle in life they will hit the second obstacle in life thinking they have finally reached

00:09:43 --> 00:09:56

what their soul is after. But they haven't yet until they find the religion of Allah subhanaw taala and they follow Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will keep what?

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

Ammonium she said we and Alison optimistic

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

Keep by Allah brothers and sisters, imagine that person walking in the midst of an intertwined jungle in the dark, as opposed to walk, someone walking on a path which has clearly been laid for them. And it is all light and they are walking straight and it is clear where they are going. Can you compare between these two, this is the example Allah Azzawajal is giving us, for these people in the way they live their life, in their perceptions in their, in their spirituality in their spirit. I mean, many of them complain about complete spiritual vacuum.

00:10:35 --> 00:10:36

There's nothing here.

00:10:38 --> 00:10:46

And they're looking for it. Haven't you heard them say, I'm looking for myself, you have not heard that before? I'm looking for myself.

00:10:48 --> 00:10:52

It can't find themselves. They don't know themselves. They're looking for that.

00:10:53 --> 00:11:10

When you ask some of the really corrupt ones, you know, why are you doing this to yourself? Why are you you know, putting things inside their body and inside your ear and inside your, your eye and you know, doing all kinds of things

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

to their bodies. They say I'm looking for myself. It's my way of expressing myself. It's their way of self expression. Because they don't know themselves. They're confused they're working on on a rocky path. It's not clear. Believe me, this is a great blessing you take for granted, if you were to lose it for an instant, and paste the * that they are in. Because of the spiritual vacuum, you will understand the blessing of this Islam.

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

The other one is walking straight.

00:11:46 --> 00:11:59

He's not bending forward, he's not hurting his back. He's walking straight, his path is clear. It is well lit. And they are working on the straight path and going towards a focused goal.

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

The disbeliever is not necessarily walking towards the focus, because they don't know what that goal is there trying to find a way. But where does it lead to? It's not quite clear.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:23

As opposed to the role of the believer, the true believer, the Muslim, he knows exactly where he's going, and what his goal is. And this why brothers and sisters

00:12:24 --> 00:12:39

is a factor that greatly facilitates things for us to achieve those goals because we know what those goals are in the first place. Go after them. Do what you need to do to achieve those goals.

00:12:41 --> 00:12:42

He says

00:12:44 --> 00:12:49

McKibbon Allah, he just mentioned walking falling on his face.

00:12:50 --> 00:13:04

And the second one he mentioned and Maryam she said we and Allah Siracusa cream, as opposed to a believer who is walking on a straight path. In the second part, he mentioned the straight path. In the first part, he didn't even mention the path

00:13:05 --> 00:13:07

because it doesn't deserve to be called the path.

00:13:08 --> 00:13:34

As some of the scholars put it, it's so crooked. And so you know, maneuvering, it's not even worth calling a path it's not even about they're just trying to work somehow in the darkness, there is no comparison between the two, my dear brothers and sisters. So praise Allah subhanaw taala for the blessing of faith and of true faith and true understanding.

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

All one lady it

00:13:41 --> 00:13:42

was somehow

00:13:44 --> 00:13:45

either money in

00:13:46 --> 00:13:47

the school,

00:13:49 --> 00:13:55

say it is he who has produced you and made for you hearing and vision and hearts.

00:13:56 --> 00:13:58

Little are you grateful

00:14:01 --> 00:14:04

say to them, oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:06

Now remind them

00:14:07 --> 00:14:18

as Allah azza wa jal gave us the example of the believer and the disbeliever and the difference in their paths in their focus in their way.

00:14:19 --> 00:14:24

Allah subhanaw taala then told them to remind them of that

00:14:25 --> 00:14:27

which is most important

00:14:28 --> 00:14:31

to realizing and understanding that

00:14:32 --> 00:14:42

and that is hearing, vision and hearts which gives them understanding it is because they don't have those three.

00:14:43 --> 00:14:59

They are working on that pattern that fashion as opposed to the believer. It is because these three blessings they may have physically, but they have not used them. They have not used them for the function that Allah has chosen.

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

paid them for what good is someone who hears if they cannot hear the reminders of Allah and the warnings of Allah subhanaw taala? What good are these ears? My brothers and sisters, if all we are using them for is to hear that which Allah azza wa jal prohibited,

00:15:17 --> 00:15:40

what are these eyes? By which Allah subhanaw taala has made us to see, if all we do is use them to see that which Allah azza wa jal prohibited fear Allah subhanaw taala what good are these eyes if they do not see, the mark of ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala in all of his signs in his universe?

00:15:42 --> 00:16:23

And what good are the hearts and the brains? If they do not see, the magnificence of Allah has the vision and the signs of Allah azza wa jal and the reminder of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his magnificent in every single thing that happens in this world, whether good or bad, what good are these hearts? What good is this understanding, I asked you the this understanding of the so called genius scholar, that he is a disbeliever in Allah. And he needs Allah subhanaw taala in this way, and he dies in that state. What good is all of his understanding his textbooks will be used for burning?

00:16:27 --> 00:16:32

What good didn't do him at all? You may have been so impressed here.

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

But there's nothing to be improved, impressed with. When you see us a Buddha he stays that way.

00:16:40 --> 00:16:46

The more you gain understanding of the physical world, the more you need to realize the existence of Allah,

00:16:47 --> 00:16:54

the unity of Allah, the Oneness of Allah, the magnificence of Allah subhanaw taala. What God is all of this.

00:16:56 --> 00:16:57

If you do not see

00:16:59 --> 00:17:05

that Allah subhanaw taala is the creator and the provider. And you have that as a creed in yourself.

00:17:06 --> 00:17:12

These hearts my brothers and sisters were placed in us for understanding. In fact,

00:17:13 --> 00:17:33

many of the scholars said, that technically means hearts, right? But some scholars said that this is an indication of understanding. In other words, it's an illusion. Allah azza wa jal is alluding to understanding by using the word hearts, and we know that hearts have understanding, right?

00:17:35 --> 00:17:37

We know that we mentioned before.

00:17:41 --> 00:17:44

One lie of Colombia.

00:17:45 --> 00:17:59

And Allah subhanaw taala is speaking about some of the disbelievers that he has rendered to hellfire. He said, as part of their traits that they have hearts with which they do not understand. And the word for understanding he used was.

00:18:00 --> 00:18:10

And obviously not in the strict sense of the word fix. In other words, jurisprudence. No, he's talking there about meaning understanding.

00:18:11 --> 00:18:31

And this can be understanding a general understanding these hearts, their hearts, their hearts without understanding. So in other words, with a lot of the understanding and the Creed and the Eman and the spirituality, it's where it's in the heart, this understanding.

00:18:32 --> 00:19:05

I mean, it's a complicated relationship. Subhanallah between the heart and the brain are things that you understand in your brain, but then it either goes to the heart and gives spiritual understanding or it doesn't. And what good are all of these senses, if they are not used to worship Allah subhanaw taala and to fear Allah subhanaw taala and to love Allah subhanaw taala and to hope for the Mercy of Allah subhanahu wa. So he's saying he is the one here use the word produced that

00:19:07 --> 00:19:09

they're trying to differentiate between

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


00:19:12 --> 00:19:44

this word Insha Allah, right halacha antiA, here you say people who Allah the unshackled okay as opposed to halacha but produced may not be the best translation and she was very close to creation which is bringing you from nothing, bringing you from non existence into existence, say who is the one who has preceded you or brought you from non existence and made for you hearing and vision and hearts. Little Aren't you grateful? Brothers and sisters,

00:19:45 --> 00:19:50

we may ask, as for hearing and vision, a lot of people have been deprived of that.

00:19:51 --> 00:19:54

So, truly we understand the blessing of this,

00:19:56 --> 00:20:00

that Allah azza wa jal has blessed us with these things. But then we say well, what about

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


00:20:02 --> 00:20:06

Everyone has hearts right? Is there anyone without a heart? Everyone has hearts.

00:20:08 --> 00:20:12

But the point is hearts of understanding. Right?

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

Otherwise, it's useless.

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

I claim that the blind man who knows Allah

00:20:23 --> 00:20:32

is much more blessed than the one who can see but doesn't know Allah subhanaw taala because that person cannot really see as Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran

00:20:33 --> 00:20:37

in Nicola to smell Moto, whether to smell some mud dua in our language

00:20:39 --> 00:20:41

be had in the army I'm gonna let him

00:20:43 --> 00:20:46

you will not be able to make those who are deaf here

00:20:48 --> 00:21:02

is Allah subhanaw taala telling his prophets are seldom you cannot make the ones who are deaf, come to here. This is metaphorical Of course, this is saying that those who are different who cannot hear the wisdom, who cannot

00:21:04 --> 00:21:15

hear the verses of Allah and understand them. You cannot make them hear if Allah azza wa jal has decreed deafness for them, and you cannot guide them blind.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:54

Why? Because they are blind because they have blinded themselves because they are arrogant, because they turned away because they disbelieved. This is true blindness, Wallahi brothers and sisters, true deafness and true blindness, and true death of the hearts is not knowing Allah subhanaw taala and not knowing one's path, and not understanding how to worship Allah subhanaw taala and what is required of them in this world, this is really the biggest loss and Allah subhanaw taala has given us this meaning in many

00:21:56 --> 00:21:58

verses in the Quran. So therefore,

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

thank Allah subhanaw taala for these blessings, at the same time, thank Allah azza wa jal for

00:22:08 --> 00:22:41

being able to use our senses to love Allah subhanaw taala and to know Him and to understand his signs and to see through them and so on. But even further than that, thank Allah subhana wa Tada for what? For having these limbs in the first place? Because others Allah azza wa jal tested by taking away their hearing, can you imagine if you could not hear, you could not hear lessons, you couldn't hear the beauty of the Quran, you could not hear them.

00:22:43 --> 00:22:52

Speaking to your loved ones, you could not hear anything, Allahu Akbar. In fact, in some of the scholars said hearing is more important than seeing

00:22:53 --> 00:22:55

because even if he was blind,

00:22:56 --> 00:23:03

if he hears lessons and he hears the Quran, how much he will benefit, but if you cannot see

00:23:06 --> 00:23:13

you find you, you cannot see you, but you can hear all of this, you can hear all of this guidance, right?

00:23:14 --> 00:23:18

There was the blind man, Maktoum, the developer of our seminar,

00:23:19 --> 00:23:28

and then didn't harm him. He was one of the great companions, he could hear a lot of the the guidance, but if you were deaf,

00:23:30 --> 00:23:52

even though you could see, you would miss a lot. You may see a lot of things but it may be difficult for you to gain more understanding and more guidance and so on. Great blessings Allah azza wa jal has given us, we take them for granted. We do. And that's why one time when I told the brothers, some of you were there,

00:23:54 --> 00:23:58

you can actually put a price on some of these blessings that you have.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:00

You can put a price on them

00:24:01 --> 00:24:10

easily, just by telling you that if I give you this amount of money, we're gonna do a surgical operation and we're gonna make you that

00:24:11 --> 00:24:13

or we're gonna make you blind.

00:24:14 --> 00:24:17

And in exchange, we're gonna give you 1 million KD

00:24:19 --> 00:24:21

and it's for you to decide

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

who's up who wants a million KD

00:24:26 --> 00:24:32

but you will be blinded million KD anyone? No one wants a million KD

00:24:33 --> 00:24:35

who doesn't want a million greedy?

00:24:36 --> 00:24:45

Just will take your that's all. Take a million KD. Do what you want me to live your life with women in Guinea but you cannot see anyone.

00:24:47 --> 00:24:49

Anyone up for grabs? No.

00:24:50 --> 00:24:52

So you're telling me your eyes are worth 1 million.

00:24:53 --> 00:24:54

At least

00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

at least. Right? You just put a price. You just

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

told me that you already have 1 million KV because of this blessing.

00:25:06 --> 00:25:14

And then you can we can say the same about your hearing. What about Islam, which is the ultimate blessing for our hearts.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:49

We'll give you as much as you want, but will take away that beautiful sense of faith you have in your heart. You will never replace it. We are kings. We are swimming in Allah's blessings but we don't know. And Allah subhanaw taala is reminding us and he's telling us little are you grateful? You're you will not grateful for this. Of course the speeches did the disbelievers. But it's a reminder to the to the believers, little aren't grateful. He says to them, and some scholars said this means that you are not grateful. It's

00:25:50 --> 00:26:04

it's a way it's an expression that they use sometimes, whereby they'll say that something is legal, but they mean by it that it is not there in the first place. The meaning of the IRS, you are not grateful. Little are you grateful. And

00:26:06 --> 00:26:09

scholars also interpreted that in two ways.

00:26:10 --> 00:26:53

Meaning, you are not grateful for these blessings and you don't thank Allah subhanaw taala for these blessings, and the other meaning is you do not thank Allah by using the senses to worship Him. You do not think Allah azza wa jal by using these senses in that which pleases Him. Instead you use it in that which displeases Him, how audacious of us Wallahi brothers and sisters do not fear that Allah azza wa jal will take your eyes as you are looking at that which is how long do you not feel that Allah azza wa jal will take your hearing, as you are listening to that which is haram beware. Beware brothers and sisters will lie. The greatest way to thank Allah for these blessings other than

00:26:53 --> 00:26:57

praising him outright, is to use these blessings

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

to seek His pleasure

00:27:01 --> 00:27:13

and to avoid his anger, this is the best way that you can show that Oh Allah, I am thankful that You have given me hearing and you have given me sight and you have given me a heart that has understanding.

00:27:14 --> 00:27:43

And I am thanking you for this by using the senses. God forbid that we use that which Allah azza wa jal has blessed us with to disobey Him. Because if we do Wallahi on the Day of Judgment, you will curse that hearing, and you will curse that vision and you will curse that heart that you used it to disobey Allah subhanaw taala or if it was a reason, and a means for you to go into hellfire Well, if Allah azza wa jal protect you and me Insha Allah,

00:27:44 --> 00:27:45

Allah Who

00:27:46 --> 00:27:48

are we were easy to

00:27:50 --> 00:27:57

say it is he who has multiplied you throughout the earth, and to Him, you will be gathered.

00:27:58 --> 00:28:10

Then he reminds them of another blessing. The fact that this earth was uninhabited before you can imagine this earth without any of what you see now. Nothing,

00:28:11 --> 00:28:35

no human beings, no civilization, nothing. It was an empty Earth. Who brought all of these people other than Allah subhanaw taala It is Allah azza wa jal who has placed you here in the first place. It is Allah subhanaw taala Who has created you, it is Allah subhanaw taala who has multiplied you, because they come here as both those meanings.

00:28:36 --> 00:28:39

Placing you okay, and spreading you

00:28:41 --> 00:28:56

in multitudes. So Allah Allah subhanaw taala is the one who has placed us on the earth, spread us on the earth and multiplied us and made us in many multitudes. This is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa taala. Otherwise you wouldn't be here.

00:28:58 --> 00:29:10

Otherwise, you would have never gotten to know Allah subhanho wa taala. And what a blessing it is. And this is part of the secret of the wisdom of Allah azza wa jal in creating in the first place

00:29:12 --> 00:29:14

for his slave servants to get to know him.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:16


00:29:18 --> 00:29:20

who has multiplied you throughout the earth?

00:29:22 --> 00:29:23

He's reminding you confirm

00:29:24 --> 00:29:26

that this is one of the

00:29:28 --> 00:29:31

blessings of his upon you as

00:29:32 --> 00:29:34

when he mentioned Satanists

00:29:37 --> 00:29:42

who told his people what's cool with quantum annealer and fantastical

00:29:43 --> 00:29:59

and remember, when you used to be little, and then he multiplied you? This is a blessing in itself when you be able to multiply if it wasn't for Allah subhanaw taala if it wasn't for the blessing of creation if it wasn't for his wisdom

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

In making multiplication, something in our hands

00:30:08 --> 00:30:13

as a means, of course, albeit without Allah azza wa jal, there will be no multiplication.

00:30:15 --> 00:30:18

This is the worldly life. Then he says what related

00:30:19 --> 00:30:20

unto Him,

00:30:21 --> 00:30:24

you will be gathered. This is the part

00:30:25 --> 00:30:41

they surely disbelieve in they might agree with the part of Allah's origin, spreading them on the earth. But they disbelieved in the Gathering, In the day of resurrection in the Day of Judgment, in the day, they will all be brought to

00:30:42 --> 00:30:53

Allah subhanaw taala. Notice how Allah subhanaw taala told them that in the beginning, he spread you and multiplied you. And likewise he is going to bring you back together again.

00:30:55 --> 00:31:09

He spread you first. But don't think that the spreading is going to save you you will all be gathered all together. Generations you have not seen you will all be brought together on one land, Allahu Akbar.

00:31:11 --> 00:31:25

But what is this piece of land going to hold? How's it going to? What's the maximum occupancy of this land? Subhanak era, this is the creation of Allah subhanaw taala we will all be gathered there

00:31:27 --> 00:31:34

for meeting Allah Subhana Allah, Allah azza wa jal make it the best day for us and not the worst, what he does Sharon?

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


00:31:38 --> 00:31:39

don't you

00:31:40 --> 00:31:49

saw daily? And they say, When is this promise? If you shouldn't be truthful, so I must have

00:31:53 --> 00:31:54

told them that you will be gathered.

00:31:55 --> 00:32:07

So the natural question for them is when? When is this Day of Gathering? When will we be gathered all together? Of course, unfortunately, it is not a sincere question.

00:32:09 --> 00:32:10

It is a mocking question.

00:32:12 --> 00:32:24

It is a question whereby they are mocking Prophet Muhammad Al Salam, and they are ridiculing him. And they are scoffing at the idea of accountability.

00:32:25 --> 00:32:31

It is not a sincere question hadn't been a sincere question. The answer would have been different.

00:32:32 --> 00:32:39

Prophet Muhammad wa sallam himself, he was asked similar questions by Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:32:40 --> 00:32:42

about the coming of the hour.

00:32:44 --> 00:32:49

At that time, Prophet Muhammad wa salam guided them to that which is more beneficial.

00:32:50 --> 00:32:56

He said, What have you prepared for it? It's coming, it's coming. Don't worry about the webinar,

00:32:58 --> 00:33:04

it will come, but what have you prepared for the day? They are mocking? Therefore the answer is different.

00:33:05 --> 00:33:22

So he says to the way Hakuna Matata has Eduardo, in coutume Sadiki. They did not believe in the resurrection, though they believed in the first creation. This is part of their lack of intellect and their mental contradictions. They claim 100% that Allah created them, Allah created the universe, but then

00:33:23 --> 00:33:29

they disbelieved in the resurrection, as we saw many of the verses of Quran. And they said,

00:33:30 --> 00:33:38

they said to each other, shall we leave you or guide you to a person who says that after you have completely

00:33:40 --> 00:33:45

withered away, that, that you will be brought together again,

00:33:46 --> 00:33:54

and you will be resurrected. They were finding it amusing, they were finding it strange that Allah subhanaw taala bring them back together again.

00:33:55 --> 00:34:00

Brothers and sisters, part of that is fear of being resurrected.

00:34:02 --> 00:34:20

It's not only that, they cannot believe it, they are afraid of being resurrected. Part of it is they're afraid of that which they cannot see or touch or feel, such as death, such as the afterlife. And therefore when they don't have a clear understanding of it, it scares them.

00:34:21 --> 00:34:48

And they wish, it is their hope. And it is just a claim, as part of their conjecture. There is no reality to it, they wish that they can be happy in the graves. And that that is the end of the story. And they will be at the graves, and they will never be resurrected. This is what they hope. Otherwise, they're afraid of that. So they mock and they scoff at it. But this is not

00:34:49 --> 00:34:59

the act of someone who has the intellect. The one who has intellect, tries to find out and understand about that which he doesn't know why Subhanallah do we use that?

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

philosophy in everything else in our life. If we don't know something we say clearly I don't know and I want to learn about it. But in something like that after, why do they just turn it away?

00:35:13 --> 00:35:29

Because part of it is following their own desires. They don't want to know that they are going to be accountable because they're going to be accountable. They can't live as they want to live. And Allah azza wa jal anyway created you not to live the way you want to live, but the way he wants you to live. And that is the best way to live.

00:35:40 --> 00:35:57

Moody say the knowledge is only with Allah, and I am only a clear warner. Who are they asking? They're asking Prophet Muhammad, he is the best of humanity and the Beloved of Allah subhanaw taala doesn't know when the day of judgment is.

00:35:58 --> 00:35:59

He didn't know.

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

Allah azza wa jal didn't tell him.

00:36:04 --> 00:36:12

This is part of the unseen that is only known by Allah subhanaw taala. The Day of Judgment is so unknown brothers and sisters,

00:36:14 --> 00:36:14


00:36:16 --> 00:36:17

there is a verse

00:36:19 --> 00:36:44

that tells us that Allah azza wa jal almost hidden that under the time of the hour from himself in the interpretation of the Ibis Zaha how unknown it is, of course it is known to Allah subhanaw taala but because of how hidden he has made it, you say metaphorically that it's almost as if he hid it from himself. Do you know this? I'll

00:36:47 --> 00:36:48

find it.

00:36:50 --> 00:36:51

Please, this is

00:36:55 --> 00:36:56

the question is clear, right?

00:36:57 --> 00:37:01

No, yes. Don't be shy. Question is clear.

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

There's a verse

00:37:10 --> 00:37:11


00:37:12 --> 00:37:15

interpreted it to mean

00:37:17 --> 00:37:21

that the hour the time of the hour is so hidden

00:37:23 --> 00:37:26

it's almost as if Allah almost hid it from himself.

00:37:30 --> 00:37:31

Is the question clear?

00:37:33 --> 00:37:34


00:37:35 --> 00:37:46

Let's find this verse. So they're asking Prophet Muhammad salah, when is the our Prophet Muhammad Al Salam as Jabril when is the hour? What the gibril say?

00:37:56 --> 00:37:57

What is the hour?

00:37:58 --> 00:38:00

What was his answer?

00:38:03 --> 00:38:11

Essentially, basically, the one who is being questioned, does not have more knowledge about this than the one who is asking. Exactly.

00:38:12 --> 00:38:15

Therefore, the prophets of salaam does not know this.

00:38:16 --> 00:38:31

Neither did Allah azza wa jal give him that knowledge. Neither is it wise, for us to know about this, it will destroy us, because we will fall into the sin of procrastination as we have fallen into that sin and everything else in our life.

00:38:32 --> 00:38:41

My death is six months, is in two years, oh, I have a long time, the day before I die, the whole

00:38:43 --> 00:39:07

rest of your life you live your life normally. No. It is the wisdom of Allah that He has hid it from you. So that you can always be prepared. It's like the test you use. It's like you students at school. And you don't know when the quizzes the quiz can come any day be prepared, right? It's similar, so that you can always be prepared and preparing for you will never know. Therefore, technically,

00:39:08 --> 00:39:12

the hour starts for any individual when they leave this worldly life

00:39:13 --> 00:39:24

because they are no longer capable of doing something to benefit them in the afterlife. So he says, Say to them the knowledge is only with Allah.

00:39:25 --> 00:39:42

The knowledge is only with Allah. What in the ideal movie and I am only a clear one. I am not here to tell you when the hour is I am just warning you of the seriousness and the danger of this hour. Prepare for this hour.

00:39:45 --> 00:39:50

And it is part of warning them and putting fear in the hearts of that which is coming to them.

00:39:53 --> 00:39:54

Last panel Carla said

00:39:56 --> 00:39:57

in another beautiful verse

00:39:58 --> 00:39:59


00:40:01 --> 00:40:15

This hour is so great. And it's time for coming is also something great. It is something heavy, that even Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not know about.

00:40:16 --> 00:40:18

And Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Himself

00:40:21 --> 00:40:37

of His coming is a sign for it. Therefore, it has already come close. And for us, we are too close to the hour. We're too close to the Day of Judgment. But Allah azza wa jal helped us to prepare for that day.

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

Once we see the hour

00:40:42 --> 00:40:44

believe me, you forget all of this.

00:40:46 --> 00:40:52

Everything in your life you're going to forget. It's gonna be a thing of the past.

00:40:54 --> 00:40:55

And it will be like,

00:40:56 --> 00:41:19

this life was just an instant in time as Allah subhanaw taala told us in the Quran, an instant in time, it's happened to you before has it not? When something great happened to you, and you forgot, maybe years of tribulation or years of difficulty or years of happiness or something else, just because of one thing that happened. It's this way.

00:41:20 --> 00:41:28

It is something beyond our imagination prepare for it. May Allah azza wa jal make us of the winners and the losers on that day, but it never

00:41:31 --> 00:41:33

will see.

00:41:38 --> 00:41:39

The work

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

to be eaten.

00:41:44 --> 00:41:54

But when they see it approaching, the faces of those who disbelieve will be distressed, and it will be said this is that for which you used to come

00:41:57 --> 00:42:01

as they are talking and Allah Subhana Allah has told his Muslim, Himachal salam

00:42:03 --> 00:42:11

to remind them of the hour and to warn them of the hour. And they are asking about this time of the hour. He took them straight to the hour

00:42:13 --> 00:42:31

Subhanallah he took them now straight to the hour. Here you are in the the time of that thing which you were promised. And he mentioned that in the past tense. No, it has not happened yet to show the certainty of its occurrence. But I'm not I wasn't straight.

00:42:33 --> 00:42:41

They read this Quran, believe me ciklum should shake us when they saw it approaching.

00:42:43 --> 00:42:51

Moscow scholars said this is the punishment that is awaiting them when they saw the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala approaching them.

00:42:53 --> 00:43:04

And many of the pious generations said that this is referring specifically to see the punishment. In other words,

00:43:05 --> 00:43:13

literally being before that punishment, what is called more ironclad, seeing the punishment and being before it.

00:43:15 --> 00:43:17

And this is what I'm referring to

00:43:20 --> 00:43:21

the punishment of Asha,

00:43:24 --> 00:43:37

when they see the power and not the punishment of the dunya, even though there is a minority opinion that it may mean the punishment of the dunya otherwise, it is the punishment of an alpha, which has awaited them when they see it approaching and coming close and being before the literally see.

00:43:39 --> 00:43:44

The faces of those who disbelieve will be distressed.

00:43:45 --> 00:43:46

Distressed is a

00:43:47 --> 00:43:50

let's say a misnomer. This is

00:43:52 --> 00:43:56

very lacking in conveying the meaning behind see at what you will

00:43:58 --> 00:44:06

see here meaning that their faces became the and in the worst state that they could ever have been before.

00:44:08 --> 00:44:09

In all of the

00:44:12 --> 00:44:28

signs that Allah subhanaw taala and his brothers called us about that will occur on the day of judgment as signs on the faces of those who disbelieve such as their faces blackening and becoming blackened. Yong Yong Liu Hoon with us. What do we do?

00:44:29 --> 00:44:32

In another verse? He says, oh shit, would you get

00:44:34 --> 00:44:46

that it is as if their faces were covered in the darkness as of the night because of how dark it was. Their eyes become blue, right? When actually we didn't mean it in zuka.

00:44:47 --> 00:44:52

All of these things will happen on the Day of Judgment. This is part of the so called discus.

00:44:54 --> 00:44:55

And part of

00:44:56 --> 00:44:59

what they see of the punishment that awaits them

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

Therefore, their faces will become like this. And he was he intentionally described the faces because there is no other

00:45:09 --> 00:45:27

part of the body that can show the signs of distress better than the face. See that will do. Everything you can think of you will see on their faces on the day when they see the punishment approaching while I have been loving Allah protect us from that. So yes, we're

00:45:29 --> 00:45:33

working hard to be hated, and it is sent to them.

00:45:34 --> 00:45:35

This is

00:45:37 --> 00:46:11

to make them more regretful, deeply regretful, as if it wasn't enough to see the punishment, then it is set to them so that they can regret working harder to beat down. This is that for what you used to call brothers and sisters, it's bringing this time aligned for us. It's it's showing it to you, as if it has already happened. It's happening in front of you. But I had a lady come to data down this which you use to take and call for enhanced. And this is what they used to do bring it up.

00:46:12 --> 00:46:14

They used to tell the prophets, right?

00:46:19 --> 00:46:42

One after another, when the prophets came to them and call them to Allah subhanaw taala they would scoff, and then they would ask for the punishment to come. The famous ones are the people of sada How do you set up the mood? And they asked for it and it was coming to them in three days. He said it was coming to you in three days. And they came back and asked the first day of the second day, where's the punishment that you have promised us? So pilot piano?

00:46:44 --> 00:46:54

And the same same sort of the limit? When he says to the name at the start, you're gonna say yet a couple that hasn't stopped feeling Allah Allah Allah?

00:46:55 --> 00:46:56

Why do you hasten

00:46:58 --> 00:47:00

in that which is evil,

00:47:02 --> 00:47:03

as opposed to

00:47:04 --> 00:47:06

putting forward that which is good.

00:47:07 --> 00:47:15

Why don't you seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala so that they will have mercy upon you. Instead, they are calling this punishment on how bold

00:47:16 --> 00:47:17

and here

00:47:18 --> 00:47:30

they are being made to regret, that they hasten that punishment that will be sent to them. This is that for which you used to call and this is, as we mentioned, Kenny said, this is the

00:47:32 --> 00:47:48

opinion of the majority of scholars, this is the meaning of time down meaning this is that for which you used to call on that what used to call, in other words, bring it to us in haste right? And ask for another meaning is

00:47:49 --> 00:48:09

the hastening part, that their own meaning the stodgy rule that this is what you use to try to hasten for yourself, the meaning is similar, and that is that they are being made to regret this call that they call for and when they eventually see it on the Day of Judgment when they see the punishment before them.

00:48:11 --> 00:48:12

Watch time.

00:48:15 --> 00:48:17

How much time was left

00:48:20 --> 00:48:20

much more time

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

in that regard,

00:48:32 --> 00:48:41

in the verses before feminism Shimokita Allah what g the first verse that we took about the person walking falling on their face.

00:48:43 --> 00:48:50

There is also a minority opinion this is the opinion of Imam Qatada that this is indeed

00:48:52 --> 00:48:53

the walking

00:48:55 --> 00:49:06

on their fallen on their face. This is in an Acura as we know that Allah azza wa jal will resurrect them on the Day of Judgment on their faces. Right, as we mentioned, and we've spoken about it in some of the verses that we have.

00:49:07 --> 00:49:18

And some of the sources that we passed by, that they will be resurrected, they will be made to work on their faces on the Day of Judgment. William Shimo, Kim bahala G.

00:49:19 --> 00:49:51

So we and other Serato stuck, they will be made to work this way. The believers are the ones who will be able to walk straight and especially on the server, on the bridge between paradise and hellfire. They are the only ones who will be able to walk straight and not to fall. But the kuffaar will be made to work on their faces. Have you ever seen someone walking on their face? It's quite amazing. And this is why we companions as the puppets or messenger of Allah. We will walk on their faces, how will they walk on their faces?

00:49:52 --> 00:49:53

I have no idea.

00:49:54 --> 00:49:55

But the answer

00:49:56 --> 00:49:57

is clear.

00:49:58 --> 00:49:59

The one who was able

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

To make them walk on their feet on their legs, is able to make them walk on their face.

00:50:07 --> 00:50:20

Besides, you see snakes, snakes are smothering. They're not walking on legs are they? So who knows, they will be able to walk on their faces on the Day of Judgment. This is

00:50:22 --> 00:50:23

as part of

00:50:25 --> 00:50:38

their part of the abuse that they are being abused. And part of the disgrace that Allah azza wa jal has promised them that they deserve for their disbelief that they will be made to walk on their faces.

00:50:42 --> 00:50:49

We'll stop here, we'll take questions. And we'll do the rest in sha Allah will finish the surah and we'll start

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

Surah two column in sha Allah next time

00:50:54 --> 00:50:55


00:50:56 --> 00:50:57

hamdulillah Hello.

00:51:01 --> 00:51:03

Are there any questions or comments?

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


00:51:12 --> 00:51:15

is the one who walks this way better guided,

00:51:17 --> 00:51:19

more guided, or the one who walks straight?

00:51:20 --> 00:51:21


00:51:22 --> 00:51:26

It's many of the verses of the Quran are

00:51:27 --> 00:51:31

mentioned in this way. As a question

00:51:32 --> 00:51:43

for us to answer and it's it's a it's an it's a famous way it's an artistic way of getting people to think about it through a question as opposed
