Sweden yo Rosa,
my dear brothers and sisters.
The impact of Quran has on the hearts of the believers and those who ponder and reflect upon the book of Allah azza wa jal
is not disputed.
There is an agreement that the Quran impacts us or should impact us
in a positive way.
And one of the benefits of
reading Quran and pondering and reflecting upon the Quran is that it induces fear, a fear that makes you alert
that actually helps you look for
look for answers, look for a way
to become a better individual. It's a positive fear. And we'll talk about the concept of fear and trauma in the near future. Because nowadays, we live in a time where fear is frowned upon. Right? Don't want to scare the person we don't want to be scared we don't want to be afraid of anything though fear in and of itself actually is not a bad thing is it?
Right, it's actually important for our survival, so we'll talk about that. But Allah as we get in the Quran specifically says to that Kill Bill Quran he may have always said, use the Quran, remind and admonish with the Quran, those who actually fear
our promise or our threats.
And keep in mind that Allah azza wa jal have the established concepts amongst the scholars of the Sunnah. gemera is when Allah makes a promise in the Quran. When Allah promises the believers are those who do righteous deeds, something Allah will fulfill it, no doubt about it. Allah will fulfill it. When Allah azza wa jal issues a warning or a threat and the Quran then Allah subhanho wa Taala is capable and may subhanaw taala and can
fulfill that or he may forgive Subhana wa Tada no one can compel Allah subhanaw taala
right. However, Allah took it upon himself that when he promises you something for doing a righteous deed that is accepted, Allah will fulfill it for sure.
And when I'm
Law warns you of something and tells you to stay away from it. If you violate that, then you put yourself at the risk of being punished. Though Allah may choose to forgive, no one can compel Allah subhanaw taala and this is from the Mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. This is from the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala so you've been at work don't worry it's all one word, meaning you and Jesus Allah who had Mala Mahalla? Well, I'm unwary do for in the Delica Lila, who subhanaw taala in sha Allah insha Allah for the Delica cada Nabil Allah He of God Allah Azza wa Jalla is standing up here he certainly Meriam FEMA, Yakubu Thielmann Qiyamah and Isa say a call into a zip home for in Ahmedabad.
We're in trouble if you're looking for in the interest.
So, nonetheless, Allah subhanho wa Taala sent this book in this message to warn us
and to admonish us, and no one is doing us a favor, no one is doing you or me a favor, if they if they if they don't actually bring up these warnings.
And these threats, someone does not really share with us the risk of certain choices that we make or lifestyle of ours, or it's some pattern of behavior or sins, then that person is not doing us a favor.
By pacifying us by, you know telling us to not pay attention. No.
I'd rather someone warn me and wake me up.
If you have a fire at home somewhere, you want your alarm system to disturb you, and wake you up from your deep sleep
and frighten you and your family members and your children. You want everyone to be frightened, so that they can get up in time
and scape for their safety, same thing and there is nothing worse. The fire of dunya is nothing compared to the fire of Accra. So I do want the warning.
And I ask Allah azza wa jal to soften our hearts so that we would be admonished that we would benefit from the reminder.
So Allah azza wa jal
tells us that we should ponder and reflect upon the Quran so that that it would benefit us.
And some of the Quran is recommended to be recited on a regular basis. One of these recommendations is to recite sorts of guff. So today I wanted to make
share with you some reflections quick stops was sort of gap so the gap is a very fascinating surah. So are the rest of the suitors of the Quran. So the calf is, is an is an amazing surah. And we have talked about one section of it not too long ago. But today I want to make quick stops. If I may, if I have time, I want to reflect or connect five sections of the surah.
In the beginning of the Surah, Allah Subhana Allah says in Niger
zealot Allah, in verse seven, Allah subhanaw taala says that we made whatever is on earth, all the beautiful aspects and some of the challenging aspects of Earth and its nature. Zenith Allah, it's an adornment for it.
A place made suitable for us to live and survive. Allah subhana brought us here for a reason. And Allah subhanaw taala designed this particular planet, in the way it has been designed this beautiful planet, Allah subhanaw taala designed it because the Beauty By the way of earth
you know, because you look at other celestial bodies, you look at other, you know, planets, and you say, Oh, they're beautiful, right? But nothing is as beautiful as Earth not because it's Earth but because it's what suitable for life.
Right? It can sustain life, that's what makes it this is the place where we worship Allah subhanaw taala where we live,
where we seek ALLAH subhanaw taala we seek achiara So Earth is a very special place. So Allah says we have made whatever is on it and a dormant for it in that Jana Madeline or the zenith Allah, what's the purpose of it? And in the beginning of the Surah, Allah subhanaw taala makes the purpose very clear. The purpose and the objective of this is the nebula home are you home so am Allah
to test them to see
who is best in deeds. This is a place is a testing ground Allah subhanaw taala duniya is not a reward Yemma Allah did not bring us through this. As a matter of fact, it was a demotion. When Adam was brought to earth, Allah says he was in a better place.
So Allah subhanaw taala brought us here to be tested. We're here to be tested.
It is a beautiful place the Quran
does establish that and in the Hadith the Prophet SAW Selim says, A duniya heard what when how the raw dunya is beautiful, it's sweet.
Right? Has has nice taste to it
as green, it's nice, but be careful. The Prophet says, Beware of it.
Right? For taco dunya be beware of it because it's very tempting. You think, Oh, it can't get any better. Allah subhanaw taala says that this is part of human psychology, right? That
to a boon, an
era you love this, this world at the expense for something much better. So Allah says that we were brought here to be tested. That's what we're here for. In Nigeria, no matter of the zealot Allah.
Allah and in the following I a verse eight ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, we're in Nigeria, you know, no matter how they have sorry, don't you Rosa
lainnya cache even had he duniya
WHAT THE HECK tell Jeevan then assured that he Bernina how a Cessna Kulu who said he couldn't who has won? What am I falak Allah subhanho wa Taala mythologies of geography I'd say the Hubble Kulu Dalek waste energy ban for kuleana and suhara. Being Asfa federal Hopper on the surface of a letter Rafi wherever you want to empty, everything will perish, everything will be gone, this earth will will change. Allah subhanaw taala says we will love everything. Everything is going to be removed. Don't settle for this. Don't settle for this. No matter what we do is temporary.
The homes that we build the businesses that we establish everything that we're doing, we're going to be gone, we're here temporarily, we're going to be gone and everything that we build and establish is going to be gone as well.
We can only enjoy it while we're here. Right and we can benefit from it later. If we do our best. This is what is established in this first first point of reflection in the beginning of the surah let's fast forward
verse verses 2930 and 31.
What is Allah Subhana? Who what to Allah say?
Allah subhana wa Tada in these verses
Allah subhanho wa Taala says
that will never lead you into shape Rana regime
I'm drawing blank here blank here whalemen Who say you will do bad
whatever on Alibaba is written with a shirt on their home for them no order mean home a Honda, whatever it is, whatever because of Fela Tamala karma Haluk Well, Amara, Byzantium and the nature of the Lacan. Alright, so hey, fight.
Allah Subhana Allah in these verses, he tells us
that all of this is going to come to an end.
All of this is going to come to an end. Right? And Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to actually destroy the mountains.
And they're going to be blown away.
Right? And Allah will resurrect everyone, he's going to bring all of us
and then we're going to stand before Allah subhanho wa taala.
All of us to answer for our actions, and a book of record is going to be brought. Remember in the beginning, it says that Allah has sent us here brought us here to test us to see who will do the best, their best, your best.
That is going to be recorded. So Allah azza wa jal says that on the Day of Judgment, that book of record is going to come down. The angels, my dear brothers and sisters, I'm not recording everything that we're doing. And then at the end, these these records are not going to be thrown away or forgotten. Allah doesn't forget anything. Subhana wa Tala Kiki, Tabby, Leila Laura B, what I answer.
Not only that Allah subhanaw taala says that on the Day of Judgment will remind them remind you of things that you have done and forgotten. Allah doesn't forget.
So that book is going to come down and Allah subhanaw taala tells us that on the Day of Judgment, I tell them will you remain clean? I mean, Mafi. The wrongdoers will be in a state of fear.
And this is a very
interesting point to be brought up. Those who don't fear Allah today. They're going to fear Allah on the Day of Judgment.
They're going to be terrified. They're going to be scared and there will be no escape and that fear of theirs will be of no benefit.
Those who fear Allah azza wa jal today, they are going to be safe on the Day of Judgment.
lodgement Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Abdeen Kofi if you fear Allah Subhan
no talent. Dunya Allah says you will not have to fear Allah on the Day of Judgment, your choice. It's your choice.
Fear Allah today and act in this life and behave in a fashion that reflects that we have fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala will be saved on the Day of Judgment. Fela how often do you want to home? Yes, no.
Don't fear Allah azza wa jal do whatever you want.
On the Day of Judgment, there will be what
there will be plenty of fear to go around
So, so this is what what this is telling us that on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala is going to hold us accountable. The wrongdoers, those who did not do well are going to fear Allah subhanaw taala they will be in a state of fear and their actions will be brought and Allah Subhana Allah says they will say, Yeah, well, you let Hannah, Woe to us, man, he had a keytab What is the matter with this book? Like why are you gonna tell me what that can be authentic Allah, it does not leave anything, not a small detail, not a small sin or a major sin, except that it will bring it up.
What would you do Miami to Hydra, and they will see whatever they have done, whatever they have earned, it will be brought forth and they will see it.
What else will be more Abu Qatada and this is the second principle that we want to establish your Lord does not belong anyone.
And this is why in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that Allah azza wa jal said in a very lengthy Hadith at the end, yeah, you got it in number here or see her and they come from and why you the hyaluron for the medulla,
furred iron woman in Lenexa, Allah says, All My servants
it is but your deeds, what you have earned what you have done, nothing is made up that I recorded for you. And then I will read, I will, I will reward you or I will punish you. I'll give you your compensation based on what you have done. So let him who finds good.
Be thankful to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and praise Allah.
And let him who finds other than that. blame no one but himself.
What would you do my middle how they run? Well, I only Maura Buddha, Allah does not wrong, anyone.
He already made it very clear in the beginning of the sutra, that he brought us here for what not to be distracted by dunya not to work for dunya he already told us that it's not worth it. I have something better for you.
Don't settle for it.
Don't Don't don't do anything for the sake of dunya. Because if you do, it's counterproductive.
It doesn't make any sense. I brought you here to work for Akon to work for Accra. Not only that, but Allah subhanaw taala gave us detailed descriptions of Jannah and the detailed description of hellfire
to make it very clear for us. You know, one of my students asked me, he said, these are very graphic, horrific descriptions of hellfire to scare, you know, they're very scary. I said yes. I said yes.
You know, if someone really cares about you, if someone cares about us, right, they will warn you of something that is very dangerous.
You want to take it seriously, if someone knows for sure that for instance, COVID is is a deadly and lethal virus.
You want to know everything there is about it. So that you could, you could be cautious you could be you don't want someone to come and deceive you. Because it's irresponsible. It's actually criminal for someone to come and tell you no, it's not a big deal.
Okay, live your life. I don't want to scare my kids. I don't want to scare my family members. It is a serious disease. It's a serious illness. I want to know,
right? So if someone cares about you, they're going to tell you that this is really dangerous. You don't want to mess with this. Don't take it lightly. That person is not trying to scare you, that person is not actually trying to they're not they're not abusing you. They actually care about you. They're telling you the facts. They're warning you.
Right. You don't want that person to put you to sleep and tell you like you're fine. You want that person to actually warn you. So that's what Allah Subhanallah made it very clear. He told us what Hellfire is like, it's not a joke. It's a serious matter. And he also at the same time entices and told us what Jana is like and that Jenna is worth working for is worth sacrificing for. Don't settle for this dunya so no one should come on the day of judgment and say well, I was I didn't know because Allah subhanaw taala made it very clear. I say this and
Ask Allah subhanaw taala to make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to a cola cola softer Allah Hey welcome First of all we have Phillip will be now who will afford all right
Alhamdulillah hamdulillah handcuff here on primo Baraka V Hua Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah. Early he'll be on the weather. So,
in verse, I apologize in verse 2930, and 31st, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, could you help me Rebecca, say to them the truth, this is the truth from your Lord. This is the truth from your Lord, the man shall have a human, whoever wants to believe, let him believe women should fit for and if you choose to do cover, Allah subhanaw taala doesn't want it for you. But Allah says for the export.
And this is not a green light. This doesn't mean this simply means for lack of a better term, though I have an issue with the word free will. This means that you have the freedom
right to choose between right and wrong, but you're responsible for your freedom. And in this ayah Allah again, it's not giving green light for people to enjoy indulgent coffee and choose go for Allah says,
well, I already bad enough. If you choose go for Allah subhanaw taala is not pleased with COVID for you, however, you're given the choice in this life. And in this ayah Allah subhanaw taala also makes it very clear and issues a warning
in alternative volume in an hour and a half of the hem Surah depois we have prepared for the wrongdoers and look at the parallel here says those who disbelieve and then he says avoid the mean the wrongdoers right, to remind us that COVID is wrongdoing. Allah said we have prepared for the wrongdoers. Right, hellfire
and its walls will surround them will engulf them from every direction there will be no escape.
When you study who you'll also be met in Cambodia, should we do a bit such Charlevoix North Africa and if they were to ask to be rescued with anything, they will be presented with boiling water that will burn their faces. This is very graphic and painful. But Allah subhanaw taala is warning us.
Allah azza wa jal says beats a Shut up What a miserable drink.
Was that at North Africa and what a miserable place of rest is that what you want to end up? This is the destination.
Then in the following verse, Allah subhanaw taala says, however, in Alladhina, Amanu Samuel Salah has in that annulled Roman Santa Ana, remember Allah said, we have created you we have brought you to this earth so that you could do us anomala so that you would do your best of deeds. And in this ayah in is 30 Allah Subhana Allah Allah says Jana was prepared for those who do righteous deeds, because we do not render in vain nor do we cancel or void or forget or throw away the deeds of those who do their best in the land.
So whatever you do for the sake of Allah will Allah he will not be lost. Allah says it will not be lost all the salah that you pray, all there's a cat everything. Not only that, even things that we give up for the sake of Allah, anything that you do for the sake of Allah will not be lost in Allah. And Allah and Allah subhanaw taala says, for these people we have
can you hear me?
You lost me?
Can you hear me?
For these people, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We have prepared gardens beneath river flow. And Allah subhanaw taala talks about their clothing, and that they will also have jewelry given to them. Right? And Allah says, near Emma Philip, what a fabulous reward. What an amazing reward. Right? Now Mr. Wabo
well has a lot more stuff. And what a great place of rest. That is the final abode. That's the final place of resting. So Allah subhanaw taala in the sort of says to us, number one that we He created us to do to see who is going to do their best. Number two Allah subhanaw taala says that those who do their best, their deeds are not going to be forgotten or lost. Number three, Allah subhanaw taala said that he does not wrong anyone. And in the Hadith the Prophet SAW Selim told us that Allah said, I will give you
what you have done. Right? If you do well, you will be rewarded for it. And if you did, otherwise, blame no one but yourself. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I
Your brothers and sisters told us that the path to Jannah
is not always going to be
It will be challenging.
Now I personally feel like a path to agenda is actually a meaningful path.
And that you can enjoy the journey. And even if there is, if there are some rough and some tough moments in this journey
once you reach your destination, you're going to forget everything about the journey.
So you might as well just enjoy the journey. I think it's a matter of attitude, but nonetheless the prophet in the Hadith says he'll fit in Jannah to Bill McCurry.
The path to hellfire seems appears to be
it appears to be right, more comfortable, easy, and it's not necessarily it's not. I think it's all
But nonetheless, once a person reaches that destination,
every joy that they have experienced is going to be forgotten. And I will give you an I will conclude with this and maybe tonight or maybe inshallah to Allah in the next few nights we'll talk about the other the other two reflections.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said,
You tell Malcolm
B and me enemy
added the enemy, they don't even add enough
with enough subheadings that you will tell you my PM. Right, that on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will bring
the most miserable person sorry.
He will bring a person who had the most luxurious and most comfortable life from the people of hellfire.
And likewise, Allah subhanaw taala will bring a person from the people who deserve Jana, who will go to Jana, yet had the most miserable life.
And the prophet in the Hadith says for Yokohama zoo, fanatic Hamza will offer you a merciful Jannetty rasa. This person will be dipped in hellfire, the person who had the most luxurious life someone imagined someone who had never from the day they were born until the day they died. They had never seen they have they had never experienced any suffering. The prophesy sort of said one dip in hellfire. And then that person will be asked by Allah, have you seen any joy? Have you seen any comfort? Have you seen Have you experienced any bliss and he will say louder is attic? No by your glory, oh my lord, I had never seen
any joy. The person that one moment in hellfire will wipe out out of this individual's
memory, every positive experience.
So once the destination is reached,
everything that they have enjoyed will be meaningless.
But for the people agenda, the process and says the most miserable person that the person who had the most miserable life, yet had a content heart, a heart that is attached to Allah subhanaw taala someone that believed in Allah and maintained hope and maintain positive attitudes yet they you know, they while they had the most, the most miserable life yet in Jannah, once they intergender a moment in Jannah will wipe out every negative experience from this individual's memory. The prophesy some said for you almost have certain fill Jana
Hara at Chicago.
Have you seen any misery? Have you experienced? No now, what is it take nothing. Even the very rough tough journey will will become a pleasant experience. You know, just think for a moment as those people who have gone through tour you know, for, you know, maybe 24 hours or 36 hours depending on their flight
to go to Mecca for Hajj
and you're so fatigued you're so tired. The moment you enter the Haram and you see the Kaaba, what happens?
The spiritual joy that you get makes you forget everything that you went through.
That's what we're talking about here.
I ask Allah azza wa jal to make us of those
whose sins are forgiven. Those who listen and follow the best of where they listen to Allahumma unlimited Adina sent me on October 5, everyone said Yeah, Allah Subhana Allah in the Quran says in Allahu Allah you can also do other than maybe, yeah, you had an enamel or salah I think you will certainly want to see him alongside the other Muhammad now because we can be me while he was when he was already come up. Seletar libre hemo le Brahim well that kinda Muhammad in Africa so they can be you know me early.
