So the meaning of the verses is there is no calamity that hits
except with the permission of Allah and He who believes in Allah, Allah will guide his heart. And Allah is Allah knows everything.
Obey Allah and obey His messenger. And if you turn away from that, then the obligation on the messenger is to convey the message.

No calamity occurs except
By Allah's Leave, this is general in meaning and includes all calamities, whether they affect the individual himself, his wealth, his children, his loved ones, and so on. Everything that'd be false people happens by the will and decree of Allah, and was already known to Allah in his prior knowledge and was written by his pen, ordained by his will and is dictated by his wisdom. What matters is whether the individual will do what is required of him or not. If he does what is required of him, then he will have a great reward in this world and the Hereafter, if it will, if he believes that it is from Allah, and he accepts it and submits to his decree, Allah will guide his
heart and he will be reassured and will not panic at times of calamity, as happens in the case of one whose heart is not guided by Allah. Indeed, Allah will grant him steadfastness when calamity strikes, and we'll help him to adhere to patients, those who will attain reward in this world, and in addition to what Allah has stored up for him on the day of acquittal, as Allah subhanaw taala says elsewhere, Verily, those who are patient and steadfast will be rewarded abundantly without measure. Thus, it is known, it is known that whoever does not believe in Allah when calamity strikes in the sense that he does not acknowledge the divine will and decree and focuses only on causes will
be forsaken, and Allah will leave him to his own devices, if a person is left to his own devices. In that case, he has nothing left at the time of calamity except panic and despair, which is an immediate punishment before the punishment of the Hereafter, for have for having fallen short in adhering to patients. This has to do with the meaning of of the phrase, whoever believes in a law, He will guide his heart, alright, within the limited context of context of calamity, as for what the phrase means, in general terms, Allah tells us that for everyone who believes in matter, enjoined, believing in Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers, the last day and the Divine Decree both
good and bad, and confirms his faith by doing by doing what it requires of duties. This is this is a great means of attaining Allah's guidance in all his circumstances, words and deeds and his knowledge and action. This is the best word that Allah bestows upon those who believe, as he says, one telling us that he will make the believer steadfast in the life of this world and in the hereafter. steadfastness means consistency, patience, and certainly in the heart when trials come. Allah says, Allah will make steadfast those who believe what the word that stands firm in this world and in the hereafter.
The believers are the most guided of people in their hearts and the most steadfast at times of panic and anxiety. This is because this is because of what they have faith, obey Allah and obey the messenger that is.
Okay, so this segment Subhanallah, and I recommend every one of you
if you have a copy of the Tafseer, and I believe all of you have access to the online or to the E, E copy, which is the PDF, and I would recommend you really read this. Again, these verses verse 11, to 13, read it and read the commentary on it from Schiff study, read it and contemplate it. Think about it. This is very deep.
What the gist of what he said is that those who have faith when calamity hits, these are the most stable people. The hearts are the most firm. They are the most resilient, that shows you the connection between faith and your state. And you know that those Muslims who get so much influenced and brainwashed with a lot of the
the the trends in social sciences, they'll tell you, Oh, you know, there's no connection between your mental health, your emotional health and Eman, these are separate. Yeah, you're just regurgitating what you don't understand.
That's what people who push towards atheism, that's what they want you to believe.
Read this with these verses and the commentary, they're clear that that statement is completely false. And we have to just point out that the concept of mental health is not one issue. It's an umbrella that includes a lot of issues that are different. And that's a problem when you use generic terms to general when you group things that are different together and then you pass the same judgment that's very problematic and illogical. So I would say, perceiving or processing this concept at the level of mental health is too general. Don't do that. It's not helpful. It's not practical.
It combines so many things, but do
Generally speaking for the average person,
your state what you're going through what you call emotional states. But again, emotion is a big, big problem, the whole word. The whole concept is problematic. And it's quite recent. And we, we talked about this previously.
This is directly related to your iman. Not even your circumstances. I'm not saying circumstances I have no input.
But you process your circumstances based on your Eman if your iman is weak, and the Shoalhaven refers to this here,
he actually has a statement here where he actually addresses this.
He says in the manual for Saudi Arabia, he said, Indeed, the patient ones are rewarded or recompensed without measure, without limit. We're only Mammon Harada. And you know from this, and Amandla mu min biller here in the world, the Messiah, those who don't have faith at the time when calamity hits the end, Emil have Kaaba Allahu wa Qaddafi that these people don't see are not conscious and not aware of the will of Allah and His predestination, Bill walkathon and mudra deal as bad but this person stands only and attends only to Dynamics cause effect in the circumstances around them and know who you are, that this person will be let down.
Where your key to Allah will NFC and Allah leaves this person to himself or herself.
Wi Fi that will kill Abdullah NFC he funnily enough soliciting the haylage is that what Hello. And if a person is left to himself, this self has nothing but panic and confusion.
He addresses this point he said is your your faith that carries you through difficult circumstances because it puts them in the right perspective. So when someone says to you, faith has nothing to do with what you know how you feel, you realize that again, these people might have good intentions, but you know what? They're confused.
They're brainwashed. Allah is telling us that if you have faith in Allah, when calamity hits, Allah will guide your heart.
Allah will guide your heart through the circumstances, Allah will guide your heart, if you will respond with patience, which is the normal outcome of having faith in Allah subhanaw taala because you put that calamity in perspective.
It makes sense, then, in the context of faith, any circumstance makes sense, no matter how challenging it is, no matter how crushing it is, no matter how painful it is, that's the power of faith, you might say, Oh, but there are religious people, you know, and when they are hit with calamity, you know,
A lot of really, so called religious people, you know, are very good at lip service. What they have is a very weak faith, but they can show they give a they they project a very beautiful kind of facade.
The so called religious people are not Islam. They could be they could be not. So don't make that like your crazy criterion for what Islam really is.
Someone has faith they can handle any circumstance, any circumstance, depending on the level of their faith.
So this is what these verses are talking about. And this is how you can have patients but again,
those who want to push Islam to the side and make it irrelevant to your life, they will tell you, you know what your feeling has nothing to do with Islam. It has to do with your circumstances has to do with you the chemistry of your brain has to do with your childhood. This is how you neutralize Islam, remove it out of the equation.
And there are whelming Muslims swallow this and they don't realize that they have swallowed the bait of atheism.
Islam is not slogans Islam is a reality that you live primarily in your inner dimension.
This is where faith is so
so what Allah is saying here again this just go to the verses
there's no calamity hardship tragedy disaster that's what mostly been mostly about comes from a saga. A saga is to hit to reach
to hit and reach to befall is a closer word in English to be full. Okay? Mostly but Saba masiva. And usually it's again, it's a tragedy, calamity loss, pain, illness, you name it, all of which we call negative circumstances, what we call today trauma, traumatic events. That's mostly but it's not like humanity just discovered a new concept, which is old trauma. It's just an modern term, but that's been in in the human experience for for all this time. That's what mostly is it's in the Quran.
Already it's in the Quran. And the Quranic word is far better and richer
Masada me mostly but in elaborative, Nila. Anything that befalls you.
It's by the permission of Allah by the plan of Allah by the decision of Allah. It's the creation of Allah. It's intentional.
No mistakes, no chances, no randomness here. It is part of the plan. So it is carefully meticulously planned. It's meant to be
Masaba mostly, but in elaborate nila, what may you mean Billa. Here, if you have faith in Allah have Iman. What do you have in them have Eman and this is the general meaning of iman. You believe Allah is the Creator, the designer, the originator. You believe ALLAH is why you here which is seeking Him. Love of Allah, the worship of Allah which means seeking Allah, that your life is about Allah, that your whole life is a pursuit of Allah.
That's what worship means. That's what believing in Allah means. If you're not doing this, what you call belief or your belief is is lip service because shaytan knows Allah is the Creator. Shaitan knows Allah is the only one who has the right to be created. Allah is the only ultimate destiny shaitan knows this, but that doesn't make him a believer. Knowledge is not faith. Faith is something else faith is when it pulls all of your being in that direction. You respond to it, you abide by it, you live by this faith moves you and it shapes you. That's what faith really is. Versus knowledge.
Okay, knowledge which is
static, you can call it static knowledge that doesn't have an impact on you. It's just a piece of information.
So when you believe that about that about Allah and then you believe everything in reality in existence, is the plan of Allah materializing by His creation, he creates it into being he plans it, he writes it down. Then he brings it into existence by creating it.
And Allah creates directly and Allah creates through His creation.
Allahu Halacha, comb Amata I'm alone, Allah created you and what you do, Allah creates through you
So what you do is also the creation of Allah.
So when you have this kind of view,
or this, this worldview,
you know what happens in your life is meant and is designed by Allah and you know, Allah is the Most Merciful. And you know that Allah does not allow any evil, any pain, any disadvantage in your life. Unless it is necessary for a greater good, so you trust
you know, you're in safe hands.
You know that Allah is not going to shortchange you.
That Allah is not here to get you.
Allah is not here to destroy you. Allah is not here to make you suffer.
But when there is a greater good, and that good can never happen unless a smaller evil, or pain or suffering or calamity, or tragedy is necessary, happens, Allah allows it, Allah brings it into existence.
And we have full we have examples of that, and we have no issue with them. But it's only with Allah because she upon works against this, your neffs work works against this, a lot of ideologies and brainwashing works against this, we get confused.
You know, some, you know, if you have an issue and that needs surgery, you will fully you accept to go through the pain of the surgery, the discomfort, the inconvenience of going through the whole process. The fact that the
the medical star staffers are going to apply sharp tools and cut your body, open it up and get into your body and remove some organs. Right? Originally these things are invasive. But why? Why are you okay with them happening because you expect a greater good a greater payoff. So it's worth it. We accept that.
People in business sometimes willfully and deliberately take a loss in order to secure a greater profit. We do that all the time.
Right? You go to the gym, and you exhaust yourself and you get so much pain in your muscles. You you work yourself so hard, and you know it's painful but what why is it enjoyable? If you're in the right mindset, you enjoy it. Why? Because if the expectation of the payoff, we do that with everything in life, but when it comes to Allah, why does Allah bring this into my life?
realize when you hear this voice within you
You're not seeing the full picture, your faith has has sort of receded to the background, and is not helping you see, and is not contributing to the way you are evaluating the situation. That's when your image gets weaker.
But when you truly know that this is the universe of Allah, and Allah knows what he's doing, and Allah only only allows evil when there is greater good.
if we were to talk about what we call counterfactual realities, that, let's suppose why,
even though there's greater good in this evil, you know, why not remove the whole situation altogether, no need for this good or no evil, the absence of this whole situation would be a greater evil, and would not be befitting of Allah subhanaw taala and his command,
that's the world that we live in. That's the reality that we live in.
But the problem is, most of the narratives that you hear around come from lack of faith, lack of iman, so they paint your reality in very painful colors. And it's not good. And that's why we have issues and it's a little bit more complex in the sense, you know, it is usually combined with focus on yourself. When yourself is the center of your life. And Allah is not the center of your life, you're going to struggle a lot.
You're going to struggle a lot, life becomes very, very painful. There is something in losing yourself for Allah. There's something so beautiful in that. It makes you selfless. It makes you invincible in the face of life's calamity. And that's part of what a human biller he had the elbow and he who truly has faith in Allah, Allah will guide the heart, Allah will guide the heart through the calamity. But scholars also say like even cathedra, he says, when when this is this spirit that you receive hardship and trials with Allah is going to open your heart to so much guidance, guidance and other areas. Allah will open the wells of with Allah will will bring about the wealth of wisdom
in your heart. And you will start to learn you will start to have insights you will have to you will connect with Allah at a deeper level. You start to understand the Quran differently, you start to see life differently. Why?
Well, the United
those who are guided and act on this guidance, Allah increases them in guidance. That's the rule with Allah subhanaw taala you act on the guidance, you act on the truth it increases what Allah we will handle more Comala
act dutiful and dutiful way to Allah subhanaw taala and Allah will teach you Allah will bring light into your heart you'll start to see the reality of things you will gain more wisdom to gain more insight things will start to make more sense to you, you will be guided to again which path in life you should take.
Okay, I think this is
okay, yeah, let's continue. Well, I believe Allahu Allah interval later on for in the meta analysis William Albula. Will movie obey Allah and His messenger. And if you turn away from that, then what is upon the messenger is the clear conveyance of the message. That's what the Prophet SAW Selim. He's not he's not in charge of your hearts. He's not
entrusted with forcing you to guidance. He can't do that. The hearts are in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala. Your only obligation upon the Prophet sunnah is to convey the message.
And why is Allah placing? What about Allah? Well, Dr. Basu, Rasool here, because in every situation,
there is a call to obey Allah.
So at the moment of obligations at some of prayer, for example, there is a call for you to fulfill that prayer. At the moment of temptation, and sin, there is a call on you and obligation to abstain from listen and obey Allah and His messenger and the time of calamity. There is a call there's a duty on you, there's an obligation and what is this? Believe in Allah, and his decree? Is God and be patient.
Well, hopefully Allah, Allah, so that's how you deal with calamities. You don't run around, you know.
You know, creating drama wherever you go. I know some people you know, don't like this. If you're, you're insensitive.
You know, but no, you are actually you're instructed to, to contribute to your own demise to your own to the continuation of your own predicament, under the pretext or under the false title of you know what? Yeah, you have the right to do this. You have the right to do that don't suppress and so on and so forth. There is some truth to that, but it's overdone that everyone wherever you go, everyone has, you know, has a drama and they want to tell you about it, and they want to tell everyone they meet about their drama.
about their pain and about their suffering, and they never get enough. It's a bottom bottomless pit. And that consumes your life. And it paralyzes you in your life. And literally your life is wasted. And then you become resentful because you've just been regurgitating all of that resentment, all of that lack of faith in Allah. Right? Just looking at the circumstances, and Allah is outside of that equation completely. Right. You will regurgitate that and what who's going to feed in this shape on all of that, call it again, negativity. You regurgitate that over and over and over again, and it contaminates your system? What do you become cynical person?
And eventually, what do you become a narcissist?
Yes, you start as a victim, you end up as a narcissist. If you embrace it, you become a narcissist. Because you will keep, you know, again, swallowing that pain over and over again, to the point that you find it morally, morally, again, in that twisted logic, morally justified, that you have had enough pain in your life, that no one has ever had similar amounts of pain that other people deserve to struggle as well.
And it blinds you morally. And that's where it leads to.
And the more this spreads in the world, the more you know, life becomes difficult. And you see that everywhere. You see that everywhere.
So again, what Islam teaches is take responsibility. When you see things, whatever happens in the light of Allah subhanaw taala, and his wisdom, His mercy, and his perfection, things will make sense and you won't be a victim.
And even if you are oppressed, you will take it with dignity.
You take her with dignity. And if you die, you die with dignity. You suffer you suffer with dignity.
That is that's exactly what Islam teaches you. Sometimes you even suffer in silence, and you know what, it's not in vain.
It's not in vain. If you truly believe in Allah Subhana Allah, you know what's going to happen Allah is going to reward you for that. That pain, Allah will reward you for it as long as you hold on to patience, Allah will reward you for it.
And it will reward you immensely
because that's deep pain.
And just loves the luck Iacobelli histogram said in a magical Buffy was an eel Allah, I express and I vent my
my sadness, my grief, to Allah only to Allah
only to Allah. But he did not allow grief to overtake him to destroy his life. He went about his life
Hola Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. He failure to what could in
no one has the right to be worshipped but Allah can in Allah let the believers put their trust.
Again, when you Where does what could come from trust your faith in Allah subhanaw taala This is why people say or how can I put my trust in Allah faith. So what color is the natural response to the natural outcome of having faith in Allah subhanaw taala if you're not working on your faith, if you are not reciting Quran, if you're not praying from the bottom of your heart, if you are not doing your vicar, if Allah is not the the highest priority in your life, if your life is not about Allah, if you do not, don't plan your life, so that it's all about Allah and everything else feeds into it, including your work and your family and your leisure time and everything. If you don't plan your
life like this, you're not going to grow faith, so you're not going to have to work. And there's no shape in the world who has a trick that works without faith. Because it's a trick.
Trick doesn't tricks don't work with faith. You have to have the real thing. And who can give you faith no one can offer your faith you have only Allah offers your faith. If you show commitment, if you badly want it.
If you are willing to invest, invest in sacrifice, if you are willing to wake up at night or cry out to Allah until he gives you until he allows the seed of faith to grow in your heart.
And you keep doing that.
And with every situation, you see how it unfolds and how it eventually leads to Allah subhanaw taala
that's the only way you know we're always seek Me we you know, we're so happy with these crash courses. With these know how and all of these. We think everything is like technology, right? We think things are like technology. Step 12345. And it's done. That you do this with simple stuff. You should do this with technical stuff with your heart. The only tool that can work is sincerity.
And consider sincerity on consistent basis that
That's the only way it works there's no secrets there's no tricks you know there's no hidden stuff that can that only a few people know. Nothing is sincerity. Sincerity that you truly want and to hate you want Allah subhanaw taala there's no tricks
okay let's continue

Here Allah low warns of believers against being deceived by wives and children. For some of them are enemies to you, and enemies one who wishes ill towards you. Your role is to be alert to anyone who is like that, for people are naturally inclined to love their wives and children. Allah gives this advice to his slaves thus their love makes them succumb to the demands of wives and children. Even if there is some sharp shadow a reservation about what they want, he encourages he encourages people to adhere to His commands and give precedence to seeking His pleasure by mentioning that which is that which is with him of great award, which which will help them to attain the sublime aims and
goals and to give precedence to the hereafter over this trans transient world. Because the prohibition on obeying wives and children has to do with that which is harmful and is a warning against that. This may lead some to think that they should be harsh, harsh towards them and punish them. Therefore Allah tells us to be cautious regarding them, yet at the same time to overlook and forgive, for that serves in nonverbal interests. Allah says, but if you pardon, overlook and forgive their misdeeds, then Verily Allah is oft forgiving, most merciful, because the war the reward matches the nature of the deed. So whoever pardons others, Allah will pardon him, whoever overlooks
their heirs, Allah will overlook his errors. Whoever forgives them, Allah will forgive him, whoever behaves with Allah as he likes him to and behaves with his slaves as they like him to and benefits them will attain the love of Allah and the love of his slaves. And he will be in a good position.
Okay, so to understand this, because some people might misunderstand, you know, how, how can you put the word enemy with your wives, and your children? How does this apply? Again, this is because we are, we are so like soaked into this politically correct in our culture, that, that we can't even that even seeing the truth. Seeing the truth and seeing the beneficial truth is problematic. And when you allow this, I mean, you live in this culture, so it's important to understand it and be able to relate to it right, but don't let it control you. Don't let it poison you. It's good to understand its limitations and its downside. So observe it, be mindful of it, but don't let it
control your thinking. The battle logic is the logic that that is built by the Creator.
And you can sort of, you know, harness that kind of logic. The more you engage with the Quran, sunnah, the more you engage with the fake and all of that stuff, you start to build away
mindset, a way of thinking, that is way more in line with reality, more in line with the truth and with what is good, you'll have a better system to process the wealth. But again, this is a gradual process. So what Allah is saying here, the general principle is, these are great blessings from Allah. And every blessing, if you don't manage it, well, it can backfire.
He's Allah is saying, Allah put these things in your service, Allah put these things as wonderful blessings, and they are part of this test of this life. These are great assets. These are great features of life. And they are meant to help you on your path to Allah subhanaw taala. But if you miss manage them, it could become a detriment.
That's what Allah is talking about, is what Allah says, in the reality that you have spouses and that you have children,
there is an enemy, potential enemy. When,
when you don't obey Allah subhanaw taala with how you manage them, and how you deal with them.
An example would be someone who loves their children to the point that they don't,
they would say, Oh, they're too they're too young, they too little, you know, for, for them to learn Islam or for them to learn the Quran, or just to say no to them. So you spoil you spoil your, your child. Right, and you don't teach them you don't educate them
to the point that they grow up to be,
you know, the person that you dislike,
right, they will create problems for you, they won't behave well. They probably get in trouble themselves. Right?
So again, what did you say you show you show us You shot yourself in the foot?
Why? Because you mismanaged your responsibility.
So that's important. The same thing applies to spouses, sometimes the spouse, you know, let's say someone's wife.
She has wishes, or some things that she wants. And that leads the person, for example, to not fulfill his obligations towards Allah subhanaw taala.
What does that mean? She's taking from your faith.
She's harming you. She's causing you harm.
Oh, does that mean she's a bad person? No.
That's the nature of humans if you're not careful, if you're not careful, you can become a detriment to your child to your wife.
If there are things you know, you want or things you like, and they're harmful to her religion.
You think, oh, I'm the husband, oh, that's my I that would really make our life better. I would, it would make me feel better, right? Or I would be happier or whatever. But what if this thing constitutes a detriment to her faith,
you're not you're an enemy, then
does that mean you're a complete enemy? No, you can be a friend and an enemy at the same time. At some, in some aspects, you're an enemy, because you are bringing about a detriment, causing harm, damage. And another area you're adding benefits as possible. You're not either an enemy, or,
or a friend.
And this is how you should treat everyone and everything in life. Sometimes your best friends might act, you know, in ways that will jeopardize your faith, or affect your faith. Friends are having good time. And it happens even among those who are right who are right, seemingly righteous, and they they are, they are religious and they are committed to Islam. You know, they haven't good time, you know, let's you know, let's go the masjid is right here around the corner, let's go and pray, you know, but we're having a good time, whatever, having a beautiful conversation, you know, let me just finish this, this story, this story, and then you miss the prayer.
Or your friends or going on a trip. And you know what? You There are many people for example, who wanted to memorize the Quran, memorize the Quran, they could have done that. But because they didn't want to waste they didn't want to lose opportunities with their friends and having good time and going out and so on and so forth. They had to give up their program, Quran program and they didn't memorize the Quran. This is not good friendship. I'm not saying they're evil, there might be some good stuff in that. But someone takes you away from Allah. That's that's the most important aspect of our relationship. So everything in this life can be actually mapped out whether it's good or not.
Good, if it helps you get closer to Allah.
If it doesn't help you get either directly or indirectly like food, eating food, is that good for you? Healthy food, eating moderately is that good? It's good. Does that take you to Allah not directly, but the fact that it keeps you healthy? You
gives you energy,
it helps you on the path to Allah. Indirectly, it's good in that sense. Same thing, relationships, people, situations, opportunities, problems. That's the definition of everything in this landscape of life can be given a final definition, good or evil. It doesn't have to be like when you say evil, evil relative to you, in relation to you, whether it helps you or not on the path to Allah. This is how you should translate everything in life and everyone in life.
You know, but me being with this person, it helps me make more profit.
Right? But what is it with these people, I have to go to bars, I have to be around, you know, inappropriate surroundings. And there's great temptation, there's a lot of evil, there's a lot of alcohol, there's a lot of drugs, there's a lot of, you know, inappropriate behavior, in decency, and so on and so forth. But you know, what's gonna get me profit?
You might get the profit, but you lose the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, right.
You don't want to do that. Right. So this is why you have to understand every situation sometimes people would,
it happens with sisters and happens with the brothers that would marry someone because they're just more handsome, or they are richer.
But their Eban their level of demand is not good. And then she Tang will come and deceive you know, I'll make her the most righteous woman on earth.
Well, obviously, you can even make a good decision. Now you're going to make very good. The same thing applies to the sister or a good brother, maybe wealthy, maybe good looking, oh, again, she's, she finds himself attracted to him, but he has some serious problems. You know, we're going to work we're going to pretend believe together. I'm gonna get into memorize the Quran.
Next day, she's coming back home with a black eye and issues like that, oh, he's doing some stuff and nasty stuff, right?
This is every blessing, every blessing can turn could turn into a curse every blessing if you don't manage it. Well, this is the general principle with regards to how you understand this verse. So Allah subhanaw taala. How do you manage all of these resources that Allah gave you spouses, children, wealth, same applies to welfare. Same applies to everything in life, everything that is a blessing, essentially a blessing, a contenant? Okay, the dunya itself is a blessing. And Allah says, Don't let it you know, preoccupy you and keep you busy from Allah.
How do you how do you manage life well obey Allah smart ALLAH because ALLAH prescribed the ways how you manage that, how you manage your, your own heart, how you manage your own actions, how you manage your own relationships, how you manage your spouse, how you manage your, your marriage, how you manage your children, you have obligations, and you have recommendations, and you have guidance, rich guidance, on advice. And a beautiful example from the prophets also them the companions and the great Muslim scholars.
When you follow that beautiful guidance, then you guarantee that these are blessings and they help you make it to Allah, so you get the best of them and you avoid the potential evil side of them.
This is what these verses are talking about.
Again, some people who would,
to literalist, take that and say how to apply the Quran. Then his child says, you know
you know, I don't know what,
take us on a vacation.
And they would tell tell off the child no, we go memorize Quran.
That's not, again, be careful. Sometimes people are harsh. Some sometimes people are resentful. Actually, oftentimes, all of us have resentments. Make sure you don't coat your own faults with the facade of religion. Don't you angry with someone. And, you know, they make a mistake and you point out the mistake, fear Allah subhanaw taala you don't really care about Allah, you care about your own resentment and you just expressing it and you using Allah and His religion as camouflage.
And that's serious. That's very serious. Same thing with family, you will find, yeah, husband lectures his wife, right? He has all his mistakes, but you know what he uses religion to get her to do what he wants or to behave in the ways he wants or to dissuade him from certain things. He doesn't have a preference and he doesn't have the guts to or the maturity to discuss that with his wife in a mature fashion. And he would say, you know, but this thing chef so and so said it's prohibited and
yeah, and or it's might be haram and you know what? Well, maybe it's not haram
Do you like to take that opinion not because it's authentic, but because it suits you. You can use it. This is playing with the religion of Allah subhanaw taala. So, just be careful. We all have this tendency by the way, we all have this weakness and shaytan is always after you pushing you in that direction. So if you don't feel safe, none of us is safe when it comes to this
Okay, let's continue.

Hear Allah subhanaw taala and joins his safe to fear him, which means complying with his commands and heating his prohibitions according to what one is able to do. This verse indicates that every duty a person is unable to do because it is too difficult, difficult for him his waves in his case, but if he's able to do some of it, and unable to do some of it, then he should do whatever he is able to do. And what he is unable to do is wait for him as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when I command you to do something, do as much of it as you can. This principle includes innumerable minor issues of religion. Listen to what Allah exhorts you to do and what he prescribes
for you for you of rulings, learn about that and submit to Him and obey Allah and His Messenger messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam in all your affairs and spend in ways that are both obligatory and recommended, for this deed will be good for you in this world and the hereafter.
All goodness is in obeying the commands of Allah Subhan
I know Tyler, accepting his guidance and submitting to His laws. And all evil is in doing the opposite of that. But there is a problem that prevents many people from spending in the manner enjoined, which is, which is the COVID COVID COVID isness. That is inherent in most people, people, they are stingy with their wealth, they love to have it and they dislike parting with it, what whomever Allah protects from the evil of his own covetousness so that he lets himself spend in ways that are beneficial to his soul, it is they who will be the successful ones, because they have done what is required of them and been saved from what is feared. Indeed, this may include all commands
and prohibitions that are ordained for people, but if a person is covetous, he will not be able to do what he is or enjoined, and you will not pay what is due and you will not be successful, rather he will be the loser in this world and in the hereafter. But if he is easy going and at ease, and accepts the laws of Allah and seeks the pleasure of Allah, then there will be nothing standing between him and doing what is enjoined, except coming to know of it, of it and realizing that is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala thus you will prosper, succeed and attain a great triumph. Then Allah subhanaw taala urges people to spend saying, if you learn to Allah goodly loan, this refers to
any spending from permissible earnings, if the intention if the intention is to spend it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and seek His pleasure and it is spent in an appropriate manner, he will multiply it for you tenfold up to 700 fold up to many times more than that, and in addition to multiplying it you will forgive you your sins because of that spending and charity for Allah expats sins by means of acts of charity and good deeds, very good deeds or raised bad deeds. Allah is apprehensive, Most Forbearing he is forbearing and does not hasten to punish the one who disobeyed Him. Rather he gives the gives respite, but he does not forget, if Allah were to take human
humankind to task for what they have earned, he would not leave on the face of the earth, a single living creature, but he gives them respite for an appointed term. Allah is apprehend appreciative, he accepts a little of good deeds from his slaves and rewards them greatly for them. He is appreciative of those who bear hardships and difficulties for his sake, whoever gives up a thing for the sake of Allah, Allah will compensate him with something better than it Knower of the unseen and the seen, that is all that is hidden from people of hosts that no one knows by him. And what they can see have created things, the Almighty who cannot, who cannot be overcome or resisted, who has
subjugated all things the most wise in his creation and command and he does not want and he does what is appropriate.
So Subhanallah, you know, the connections that you can make between among the verses of the surah are so beautiful. And this is what I would recommend honestly, like
that you take half an hour, just read, read the source and read the commentary on it and just reflect make some connections, beautiful connections, I don't think I can cover all of them. I'll just cover what I see. Maybe the most outstanding here. So what Allah is guiding us here for Taboola Mr. Dotto in the in the face of all of these calamities, hardships and things like that and being the command to be patient in the face of even all of these blessings that they could turn into in our
they could turn into a detriment? If they're not managed? Well, what should you do, right? Fact of Aloha Mr. Gatto. be dutiful to Allah act with Taqwa to the best of your ability. That's what Allah requires of you.
Now you can live alone if Sun allows, not doesn't overburden any self.
So what Allah will hold you accountable to is the limits of your capacity.
But make sure that you know you, you invest all you can in you put all you can and beyond that Allah doesn't hold you accountable. But don't make it as an excuse that you don't want to do something and say, you know, that's my capacity. You lie you just deceive you're deceiving yourself because again Allah Allah knows all of that.
For double Allah Mr. Title will smell will you
follow Allah and His messenger? Here an OB for smell wildly one for you. Oh, hi Ronnie unfussy come give from yourself. Here. M FICO is not only giving in terms of finances, but also giving whatever because everything is said.
purifies, everything is spending all good,
you know is about going against the, this stingy nature of the self, the self wants for itself they call it the ego, right but again, and neffs it loves itself, it wants for itself. And its forces are actually put in you for good, but they need they are blind forces, all your desires are originally legitimate, but they are blind forces this is why you can't give them a free play, you have to manage them and Allah gave you ways, Allah gave you ways to express them in the right direction where they become helpful and good rather than destructive. If you just follow the the cue of your desires blindly like that, yourself is going to lead you to destruction, sometimes, immediately
sometimes long term.
should I enough says like, my like the miserly nature of the self, that means all self centeredness? Sure harnesses self centeredness. I want everything what's in it for me for me?
I should be the one getting all that stuff. How does it benefit me? What's in this for me? That's your handcuffs. Why don't people spend because, oh, that's my money. I made it on it, keep it to myself, I'm going to need it. I can buy something with it. I can buy stuff with it. I'll feel secure when I have it. And things like that. But Allah is saying, you know, the good for you really comes with that sacrifice that you go against? You know, the the urge of yourself, against the edge of yourself? How far can you go to the best of your ability? For Tapachula? Mr. deitel, and all good actually lies in opposing yourself going against the cues of yourself? This one I believe we've been
I'm not sure. I think one of the commands was asked how do we recognize evil? He said, Look at yourself, do you desire of yourself? Where does it lead you go against it.
Always you want to avoid evil. We want to you're confused about something is a good or evil, check where yourself is leading you. Right? That's your desire go against it. Again, it's a requires a little bit more wisdom and nuance than just this. But again, you get the point.
Allah here really summarizes what Islam is, what's the path to him. It's not succumbing to the desire of yourself, not letting your self your neffs your lower self, your neffs lead you, you lead it, it's full of potential. But you have to lead it with your faith with your iman,
with your faith in Allah subhanaw taala and the knowledge that you get
that's it. And this is why there's a hadith it's not authentic, but the meaning is agreed upon.
There's weakness in the narration. But the meaning scholars agree on that. Even when they point that the narration has some weakness they say the meaning is absolutely correct.
Now you may know how to combat Daya corner our hooter badly magic to be none of you truly believes until their desire their self, the call of their lower self
follows My Guidance.
Does it like you at the highest level is when you tame yourself that your desire becomes in line with Islam, or the basic level which all of us are in. And that's basically
you curb your desire to follow what Allah ones are the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala and that's obedience.
One vehicle higher on the emphasis from Allah says going against this stingy nature of the self the self centeredness is better for you how you run the unforeseen. When the yoke is your hand FCF I would recommend if you're hungry, successful once the highest success is achieved by those who are able to go against the desire so keep yourself under control.
You lead it don't let it lead you. That's that's really what it boils down to.
In Tokyo Allah Quran hasna Allah frames at the sweet as a loan if you get a give Allah a goodly loan, which is basically simple sacrifice that you do or you give from yourself for the sake of Allah from your time, from sacrifice your desire, some of your finances right? If you give it for Allah that kind of sacrifice is rewarded tremendously by Allah. Multi folds.
In Allah puts it in the in the form or in the analogy of as if you give Allah alone Allah is gonna give it back to you and give you more profit.
You don't have full
welfare law C'mon Allah will forgive your sins. Allah Allah is thankful. Allah is always appreciative.
In nothing you do for the sake of Allah nothing you suffer for the sake of Allah. No, in our atom of
pain you go through, if it's for the sake of Allah and the sense of how can you make it for the sake of Allah, if you just seek ALLAH in this life, any pain that comes into your life becomes for a while. It's that simple. But if Allah is not so much in your life, then you have to think technically about intention. And it becomes very complex. But if your life is about Allah, the overall direction of your life is heading towards Allah, whatever pain comes in to your life, automatically you will have an intention, you will find that the intention is there without you having to work it out.
Your life will look more logical, Allah is appreciative, thankful, nothing goes to waste with Allah, nothing. But make sure it's with good intention. And based on faith lauscha Quran Haleem Allah is forbearing forgiving, he allows you time you go wrong, he allows you time to come back.
And even maybe, Lower School animal baby will shahada disease will hacking and Allah knows everything. He knows what you don't know. He knows the seen and the unseen and
easily as He is the Almighty the powerful everything is under his command. Nothing happens without his permission without his
consent, or without even His Word. And he is the always he's always so inshallah with this we have finished completed. So let's at verbal, I will have to leave but I can take one quick question. One quick question.
sisters, I don't see anything in the progress. No questions. Okay, is that Kamala Harris insha Allah next Friday be it Nila hater Hello. So Lhasa Messina was highly drained Baraka muvico cyclophilin
