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

Not having to rely

00:00:34--> 00:00:39

solely on fusino CRT or Marina mejor de la ilaha illallah

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

wa Chateau La la la la sharika lah

00:00:45--> 00:00:53

rasuluh Am I bad? First I apologize yesterday I couldn't come to give the halaqa

00:00:54--> 00:00:56

so inshallah we'll try to

00:00:58--> 00:01:39

go a bit far not necessarily faster today but a bit, probably deeper because there's a beautiful verse that we can deal with today insha Allah. So we reached the verse 17 and we said salata to just talk again about the context salata rod, sort of thunder. So it talks about natural phenomena, natural phenomena, and a Lost Planet, Allah when he talks about natural phenomena, he takes it as a starting point to lead us to the point behind this creation. And the point behind our existence, which is worshiping Allah subhanaw taala. It's a very profound argument. It's a very profound, powerful argument, you will find it taking place over and over again in the Koran. And part of its

00:01:39--> 00:01:44

power comes from the fact that natural phenomena is evident to our perception.

00:01:45--> 00:02:30

Mountains are there we see them, no one denies mountains, thunder, and lightning is there, no one denies their existence, the heavens are there we can see them. So no one denies their existence, the Earth is here. No one denies its existence. So this is a very important point in argumentation, that when you start an argument or a debate with someone, you start from common grounds, things you both agree on, things you both agree on. So you can take this as your starting point. And from there, you start pulling the argument towards the point of contention, the point of contention. So if you manage to take steady steps, and get the other person to agree with you, because your flow from the

00:02:30--> 00:03:01

starting point, or the common grounds, down to your argument is quite lucid and smooth and logical, then you might be able to get the person to see what you see. And the last one that uses this argument so often in the arm, because it's it's so powerful. So if anyone is really searching for the truth, and they approached with an open mind, they would have to arrive at the conclusion that this universe is designed and created by Allah. And therefore,

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

all this meticulous and profound creation must be there for a reason, and for a purpose. And the only conclusion is, since a law put all everything in place, and a law manages everything, and he looks after everything that he provides for everything, then

00:03:22--> 00:03:49

logically speaking, he is the one who deserves our trust, our connection, our sense of nature, to be directed to Allah. So when we ask we ask of Allah when we rely on something we rely on Allah subhanaw taala, when, and ultimately this shows that we are designed and we are created, ultimately, to worship Allah Subhan, Allah to Allah. So Allah takes this, this argument in the surah, he approaches it from different angles,

00:03:50--> 00:03:51

the previous verses,

00:03:53--> 00:03:57

we're just making this argument, we're just making this argument that

00:03:59--> 00:04:26

Allah is the Creator of the heavens and the earth is the Lord. So who deserves to be worshipped? Why do you worship idols? Why do you worship peers? Why do you worship the sun, the moon, cows, rats, and so on and so forth? Why do you worship the creation? When you can see that the one who designed this whole world and controls that the one who has the power and the mind and the influence and he has the final say in this universe is a lot smarter. So why do we turn

00:04:27--> 00:04:41

to others when you seek help? When you seek protection, when you seek guidance? When you seek provision? All of these creatures are helpless. They themselves depend on Allah subhanaw taala as the last one Allah says, In surah, Allah

00:04:42--> 00:04:47

Allah, Allah Dena and the owner, yep, Tawana illallah wa Sierra Yama club.

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

You have to one want to get out of be when we say that

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

those that you worship and you call upon these are the ones that are trying to get nearer to Allah. So why didn't you just try to get one

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

To try to get nearer to Allah just says that you do, why do you take them as gods? Why do you take them as objects of worship. So last one of the same, if you come to the conclusion that Allah is the Lord of this universe, the creator of this universe, the only conclusion that can come out of this fact is that only Allah deserves the right to be worshipped. Only Allah deserves that you turn to Him in seeking help, as he can protection and seeking provision, and so on so forth, then Allah makes it clear. And he says, this arguments so so clear that we do when you don't see it, you're just like a blind person.

00:05:35--> 00:05:55

The difference between the person who sees this argument and relates to it, and the person who fails to do so is exactly the difference between a blind person and a person who can see, or exactly the same difference as that between darkness and light. It's so sharp and so so stark, that you cannot miss it, the sort of obvious.

00:05:57--> 00:06:06

So now a lot of us either, and we said, Now Allah is going to talk about a very important fact about this life because sometimes some people say why there is so much evil in this world.

00:06:08--> 00:06:23

Now, this is the real context of this universe of this world. In this life, Allah has designed this world or designed this, this life of the dunya, for evil, and

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

good

00:06:26--> 00:07:10

to coexists. for truth and falsehood to be in the same place at the same time, on the day of judgment, they will be separated. And that's part of the meaning of what he said of the reckoning. And he said, that they will be separated, truth will be on one side for so they will be on a different side, the people of the truth will be on one side, and the people who have false will be on a different side. light will be on one side, darkness will be on the other side. This is how the day of judgment will be. But this life Allah Subhana Allah Zonda, as it says, and this is what fitna is, this is what the meaning of fitna is, it's a trial. So Allah allows good and evil to coexist in

00:07:10--> 00:07:41

this world. And this is how Allah subhanaw taala tries us. So whatever you gravitate to, shows what you end will be, what will be the same as truth and goodness, or will it be the same as falsehood and evil? So Allah Subhan Allah says, anzahl Amina semer, in and for salat, Odia, tumby Adria, mlst Rosa de robbia woman mangopay Donna live in La Jolla in Alma De Anza de la, cabeza Lika baribeau la will have

00:07:43--> 00:07:44

killed canaliculi below hapa.

00:07:46--> 00:07:59

Now, one aspect of the power of the Quran is symbolism, symbolism in metaphors. Allah gives us figures of speech in the Quran, as well as one that says within

00:08:01--> 00:08:21

the next one when I take over ilani mode, and these are the parables these are the figures of speech. These are the this is the symbolism that we offer to people in the Quran, and only the people of understanding will be able to comprehend it. People have sound minds and sound hearts. Why? Because

00:08:22--> 00:08:33

in symbols and metaphors, this is a very powerful lesson. And when you grasp that lesson, it's easy for you then to take it to your own personal life and benefit from it.

00:08:35--> 00:08:51

So last month, Allah gives here two metaphors, two important metaphors and these metaphors to Panama. They repeat themselves in the Koran repeat. So many times, they start with soullessly Baqarah they start with sort of the bacala shell Islam Tamia calls them elmiger Luna de methylome, a,

00:08:53--> 00:09:06

the metaphor of fire and the metaphor of water. They appear throughout the Koran, they are very powerful. For example, in sort of the bacala right at the beginning, Allah subhanaw taala says methylome come as a little lady So

00:09:07--> 00:09:18

the example is just like the example of someone who sought fire, they sought fire for light for light they want it is dark, so they need light. So they saw fire.

00:09:20--> 00:09:28

Then later on our castle even the two verses later, our castle, even Minnesota, a blue metal

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

or like a rain shower

00:09:32--> 00:09:33

like rain showers.

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

So

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

these two parables, water and fire are always mentioned and they always mentioned in the Quran. And by the way, I spoke about them in a lot of the Holocaust, a lot of the Holocaust and connected them to the mission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we said the prophets of Salaam or the even the Quran itself and the prophets of Salaam comes with two things. Life

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

Light remembers that life and light we said that repeatedly, life and light. That's what Islam brings about life and lights. Light is connected more to the fire because it brings about light and illumination and life comes more with rain and with showers.

00:10:21--> 00:10:42

So the truth that Allah subhanaw taala sent to humanity brings about two things life and light, life and light. And these are the same two parables. The Parable of the fire and the parable of the water Allah mentions them here to use them in a different context. The first portable undzer lemina semer EMA and facade od atomica Daria

00:10:43--> 00:10:49

mlsc Luiza De La Via Allah subhanaw taala says he sent down rain from the skies.

00:10:51--> 00:11:09

So the valleys received this water received this water, each Valley took as much as it with all its capacity allowed. So some some valleys take a huge amount of water. And some valleys take small amounts of water.

00:11:12--> 00:11:33

When it says and on this body on this moving body of water, creeks and rivers and so on and so forth. You will find all of these impurities, all this kind of scum, on the top of the water, it's made of different stuff leaves, twigs, dirt,

00:11:34--> 00:12:02

foam, this is what we call exhibit, exhibit exhibit, but the saliva that comes out sometimes from the mouth, we call it an art exhibit as well. So this kind of scum floating on the surface of the water last month and as soon as this water flows through these these rivers, in different capacities, you will find on top of it you will find the most visible part of it is what is kind of form and scum

00:12:03--> 00:12:22

is floating on top of it. So that's the first parable. What does this mean? This resonates with the Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he says my fellow man Bethany Allah who be Amina Buddha. Were my fellow my fellow nurse camellia Ethan Angela Hola, homina sana.

00:12:23--> 00:12:33

Can I think of anything along the example or the parable of what Allah sent with me the guidance that Allah sent with me is like rain that was sent from the skies.

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

For waka Allah Allah.

00:12:38--> 00:12:52

For cannons Minho. Alone, I'm paraphrasing the idea of an adequate man. So for candidates for work, I mean, here are all the album hutzpah

00:12:53--> 00:13:20

for worker le helma. For embattled for cabinet Who am battle killer. So the process of synonym says what I was sent with the guidance of the truth the revelation is just like rain falling from the skies. And then it has fallen on Earth. So you will find some pieces of land that are fertile, so they accepted the water and absorbed the water this kind of soil and used it to grow. So

00:13:21--> 00:13:26

you can find beneficial plants and vegetation grew in this land. It grew in this land.

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

What

00:13:30--> 00:13:45

are our Lin Dee Ann have a lot to map well I'm torn between color and there are some pieces of land that would absorb this water and keep it but it does not produce vegetation. It does not produce plants.

00:13:47--> 00:13:49

Which are Alden Alden jet De

00:13:50--> 00:14:03

La Jolla, Kabira, tilma and Bethel killer, and you will find some kind of desolate, arid lands that does not keep the water and does not grow vegetation.

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

So remember Haman, he explains this Hadith, he says, These are the three types of human beings, you will find revelation, which is the Quran and the Sunnah came from the province, Adam is just like the water, just like rain.

00:14:18--> 00:14:28

So the first type of of soil or land is fertile. It absorbs that water. So it takes the revelation accepts it and is able to memorize it and learn it.

00:14:29--> 00:14:45

And what does it do? That's the best type, he says, then it produces from that it produces from that vegetation crops produced and so on and so forth. So he's saying this is the example of the people of knowledge, are able to absorb

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

the knowledge of the revelation, memorize it, and then extract lessons and rulings from it. Extract lessons and rulings from it. And he says these are the intelligence scholars

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

are able to memorize and learn the text realistics and then produce rulings from them produce rulings from them. He says this is the highest type. The second type is our ability. And these are lands. Most of most of them are rocky lands, they're able to absorb the water and keep it but they do not grow anything. There's nothing grows that.

00:15:22--> 00:15:45

So people would come to these lands, and they would take some of the water there and benefit from it. Even though claim says these are people who are able to memorize and learn Islam, learn the text, but they are they don't have the intelligence to extract rulings and lessons from it. And he says this is what the prophets of Solomon says in the Hadith.

00:15:47--> 00:16:05

Not but Allah who sent me a number of lonely and semi I mean Nima Carla 10, fabella, hakama, Samia, for Obi mobile loving the process, lm says, may Allah brighten the face and lighten the face of a person who hears something from me, then he conveys it to others,

00:16:06--> 00:16:15

exactly as he heard it, and how often you will find a person who receives it from him, who is able to understand it more than him.

00:16:17--> 00:16:33

So basically, there are people who can convey the revelation as it is because they memorize it, but they cannot see the lessons and the benefits in it. So when they convey it, there are people of understanding who can take more lessons from it. And this actually happened with illimitable hanifa.

00:16:34--> 00:16:46

Mo loud, he was with one of his teachers, one of his teachers who taught him Hadith. And a person came and asked his teacher a question. He asked him a question. And

00:16:48--> 00:16:55

his teachers have an answer to this. So Abu hanifa took permission, so permission to speak and he spoke and he gave an answer to that man.

00:16:57--> 00:17:07

So his she was surprised that when he gave the answer, he used the Hadeeth. He took the answer from Hadith, which he had heard from the chef. So the sheriff said,

00:17:09--> 00:17:19

well, like he says you are a person of knowledge. Because I know this Hadith, but I did not see the ruling get the benefit that you extracted from it. It is the law you deserve the name to be

00:17:20--> 00:17:44

your authority. So this is the second time The third type is outdone, Jessica Alden agenda. Agenda, it's it's a, it's a land that does not grow anything and it does not keep moist, does not keep water, there's no benefit in it. And these are the people who reject the truth. They don't hold on to it. And no one benefits from it from them in that sense.

00:17:45--> 00:18:09

Okay, so now last month, I was saying, I was given this parable, there is there is water that comes down from the skies. And it goes through these valleys runs through these valleys, different capacities. I'm going to explain this as well what this means. And then all of these, this running water has on top of it, the most visible part of it is what the form and this come that is

00:18:10--> 00:18:13

why there is no benefits in it, it's useless.

00:18:16--> 00:18:24

Then the last one, I'm gonna jump to the end of the verse because the lunch is the other metaphor and then he comes back to this so lots of analysis for a miserable failure

00:18:27--> 00:18:48

as to the form and the scum, then it goes to waste. As the water runs, it gets laid on both sides gets laid on both sides and then people they take the benefit from the water itself. This common this form is useless no one benefits from it. And then it disappears and dissipates and disappears.

00:18:50--> 00:18:58

I'm not going to arrive at the conclusion yet because I need to mention the second metaphor What am I in for NASA for me?

00:18:59--> 00:19:30

But what benefits people which is the water here, it remains an earth and people are able to access it and and benefit from it. The second parable, Allah subhanaw taala says when we marry you, okay don't even refer to affiliate in our meta in Ziva do Mithra Allah is giving us the example of gold, silver and other metals. Now, when people who deal with these kind of metals when they want to purify them, what do they do?

00:19:33--> 00:19:38

They heat them the heat and they expose them to extreme temperatures, why?

00:19:41--> 00:19:44

to melt them and what is in the melting process what happens?

00:19:46--> 00:19:49

purification, the impurities will burn.

00:19:50--> 00:20:00

These will remain and the impurities will burn. And that's what they do as well with iron they heat it very high temperature where the impurities will start

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

To burn and they will get out. So what remains is solid iron, solid iron the same with gold. The same with silver, the same with copper as well when they want to purify it, they expose it to extreme temperatures. And in this in this high temperature what happens? impurities get bent. And what you get is a pure substance or pure metal, pure metal which is stronger, which has better qualities. So, last month Allah is saying is giving us this is what this life is all about. In this life, rain falls from the sky, it's pure, just like the revelation comes pure. But when it mixes with earthly substances, what happens? It develops this kind of form and impurity, so it's mixed. So

00:20:48--> 00:21:12

the truth is mixed with a lot of impurities, and where do you find these impurities on top, on top, they are the most visible, they are the most visible. So the truth will come from Allah subhanaw taala. But you will find when it mixes with the thoughts of people, and their convictions and their desires and their whims and their ulterior motives, what happens

00:21:15--> 00:21:16

they sort of

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

distort the purity and the beauty of the revelation of Allah.

00:21:24--> 00:21:31

So in this life, you will have always a mixture. So this is an example the truth comes from a lion, it still will be

00:21:34--> 00:21:47

sort of watered down with a lot of human elements, that that have ulterior motives, another part of it, the fitrah, that Allah subhanaw taala put inside of us it's pure, the prophets of Solomon said koulamallah.

00:21:48--> 00:22:27

human being is born upon a state of Fatah, the companions are all agreed that fitrah means pure, the pure the purity of Islam, that we are upon to heed with upon love of Allah subhanaw taala This is how we are born. What happens to this sutra, the moment you are born into this world, you start taking the impurities of this life through your upbringing, influence of parents, influence of teachers, peers, people, society, media, and so on and so forth, starts mixing with the pure substance that you were given originally. So what happens, the truth is mixed with falsehood. Truth is mixed with falsehood. And this is why in this life, Allah Subhan, Allah to Allah makes us go

00:22:27--> 00:23:02

through trials, through trials. So what do the trials do? The trials do exactly what the fire does to the precious metals. When you expose these metals to extreme temperatures, the impurities will burn out, and they will be removed. And then what will remain is the pure substance is the pure substance. This is why you will find a lot of people actually, they stopped practicing after going through calamity, a real disaster that shakes them from inside and they start asking the bigger questions. What is my life all about?

00:23:03--> 00:23:44

When someone dear to them dies, when they go through some kind of through some kind of an accident, or when they lose a huge amount of money and wealth or when they lose a loved one or their girlfriend leaves them and so on so forth. People Oh, it's a life threatening experience or accident. People start asking the bigger questions because the veil has been removed. Now they start to see the truth. Why because the trials and that's what fitna, by the way means fitna means a trial. In the Arabic language fitna is the word that is used for the fire that you ignite in order to purify gold.

00:23:48--> 00:23:50

This is the same word that is used

00:23:51--> 00:24:19

for the fire that is used to purify gold, fitna same thing because it purifies you trials. So the mixture of the nature of this life is a mixture of good and bad truth and falsehood that's what this life is. So any trial you go through is actually acts as a purifying process purifying process, so last month, and it says Cavalli k adorable la will have our bottle. This is how Allah

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

allows truth and falsity to collide.

00:24:25--> 00:24:32

collide, a love brings them together. A love brings them together in this life allows them to coexist and be here.

00:24:34--> 00:25:00

But all of this is towards a good end is towards a good end. So again, let me summarize I know this is a bit points here and there, here and there. But it's just because these metaphors are very powerful and very intense. So our last one that is saying there is a pure substance or pure revelation that comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala pure guidance comes from Heavens just like the rain falls. Once it reaches the earth, it mixes with impurities and the

00:25:00--> 00:25:43

impurities blemish its beauty, and they remain on the surface. So they are the most visible side. And this is why usually you will find falsehood, you know, appearing more, it's mainly on the surface because it makes a show, but you will find the pure water is underneath, and it's quiet. It's underneath. And it's quite some of the scholars that taken so many benefits from this kind of metaphor. Every simple detail there is intended is very powerful. So some of these benefits is that you will find the water running underneath this column. And it's most of the time it's invisible. But that's where the benefit is. The scum on the surface is pointless. And it's not going to last

00:25:43--> 00:25:59

for long, as well. Awesome. Allah says, well, in general, how was the Huckleberry Finn in Alberta? in Alberta, Canada, the truth has come and forces has been removed, or has taken to the site, because falsehood does not stand before the truth.

00:26:03--> 00:26:38

But not only mobilehelp de la belle, plenty for your demo for either. So we throw the truth on falsehood. And if it removes it, it removes it does what Allah subhanaw taala says on the promises on them says, I'll happily oblige, and happily oblige well badly law legislate the promises on him says, I'll have to oblige The truth is so bright and, and evidence is very powerful, it's authentic. Well, about little ledge ledge, meaning false hood keeps vibrating. It keeps

00:26:40--> 00:26:50

flipping keeps deteriorating and changing, and, you know, going up and it keeps changing. It's not steady, it's not firm, it's not strong, it doesn't have a strength of its own.

00:26:51--> 00:27:38

So again, so this is what it means the truth comes from heavens, through the revelation, but when it mixes with earthly substances, it will be some impurities will cover the truth of it will cover the truth of it. But last month, Allah says Allah allows this to happen in this world. Why, because the trials of this life, and these trials are usually what the mixture of good and evil, the mixture of good and evil, when this kind of trials happens, it removes the impurities, it is meant to remove the impurities, until the truth becomes evident, then what will remain at the end, at the end of every trial, at the end of every experience for a miserable failure as to the scum and the form, it

00:27:38--> 00:27:41

will dissipate and it will disappear.

00:27:43--> 00:28:33

What am I infer on NASA for young a lot, but as to this, which benefits people which is the water. And in the example of the fire, it's the true precious metal, it will remain, it will remain so through the fire, the impurities will burn and will disappear. But the precious metal will remain and will come out of this process even pure, even pure a mindfulness FM could have an alcoholic a horrible law. And, and this is how Allah subhanaw taala strikes parables for people Allah gives to people metaphors, and symbols, so that they may basically basically reflect something about the values that carry water that receive water according to different capacities of loving a vessel they

00:28:33--> 00:29:03

allow on the cousin of the Prophet sauce on them. He says this is an example of the scholars. He says, water that comes down is similar to the revelation that comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you will find there are people that Allah has given capacity to accommodate more of the revelation, one of the truth. So these are the these become scholars, great scholars, who are able to accommodate and assimilate and comprehend great amounts of knowledge.

00:29:04--> 00:29:16

So they receive them, whereas you will find some people who excel only in one branch of knowledge, or they can learn only very, very little. That's their capacity. That's their capacity. So that's another part of this

00:29:17--> 00:29:39

metaphor. So again, the point here is that this life is a battle between truth and falsehood. And there's no point that they be separated. And this is why sometimes people say people ask questions today is why there why there are innocent people dying. Why there are no there are children dying. Why does Allah allow all of this evil to happen and take place?

00:29:41--> 00:29:59

And we have to realize something that this life, this is the story of it. That truth and falsehood have to come together they have to combat they have to fight. The truth has to struggle against falsehood. And what happens in life and this is something we have to be like our hearts have to be in peace about

00:30:00--> 00:30:16

This, do you know what this life does? Well, this life does to us. Somebody might say, you know, if I didn't go through this kind of experience, if I didn't go through this kind of upbringing, I would have been more righteous, I would have been better. The reality of this life is just like the fire

00:30:18--> 00:30:21

that we use to purify metals.

00:30:22--> 00:30:26

What this life does, it just reveals your true colors.

00:30:27--> 00:30:38

This life doesn't make a Muslim catheter, or a catheter Muslim, it does not, does not change people. It does not change people. What happens in life, it just

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

reveals your true nature. That's all it does. You can make any claim you can say, oh, if I lived in Saudi Arabia, I would have been the most righteous person. If I grew up in Mecca, you would find me the best Muslim ever.

00:30:56--> 00:31:12

Right? Isn't there people who were born in McCann these days, born in Mecca, and raised in Mecca, and had all the opportunities to study Islam and be influenced by great scholars, and these people died as non Muslims. Isn't that true? It happened.

00:31:13--> 00:31:21

And under people who are born in countries where you don't expect a Muslim to survive, and these people, some of them become the most righteous.

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

So anyone who thinks that Allah has misguided them in the sense that Allah forced them to misguidance This is untrue. Whatever happens in this life, it basically all it serves to do is reveal your true colors. This is exactly what this life does. That's That's it.

00:31:41--> 00:31:44

So this is why and this explains what sometimes people have an issue with this.

00:31:46--> 00:32:05

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says that Allah took from humanity, a handful of people. And he says, however, for colgin, whether or not these are the people of gender, these are people of the hellfire. So we will say this is arbitrary. But Allah just chose forcefully people like this know,

00:32:06--> 00:32:16

this kind of handful that a lot took is designed by his wisdom and his knowledge of humanity. So no one gets in this handful, except the ones who deserve to be in paradise.

00:32:18--> 00:33:00

So this life, simply all it does, it reveals your true colors. So let's try to put these two parables again together. What happens in this life is that a lot puts you here to reveal your true colors, just like precious metals, or any type of substance, you put it through fire, you figure out what it really is, you figure out what it really is, you put wood, it will burn out completely. There'll be no wood left or be ashes. It's not precious metal, what is not precious metal. You can't say oh, we should have we shouldn't have put it there. But if you really want one, if you are looking for precious metals, that's the process, everything you have has to go through. So we are

00:33:00--> 00:33:43

going through this purifying process. And it's a revealing test. It shows who you really are and what you really are as simple as that. And then our last one that is saying in order to do this, the way we do it is by sending true revelation, true revelation that resonates with the pure substance that you are made of originally. And then when it sent down on this earth, it has to battle and it has to fight against and has to deal with it gets mixed up with falsehood. And this is what the test is. But what happens at the end of this process, this pure substance will come out pure,

00:33:44--> 00:33:52

it will come out pure. all the impurities, although they make a show they make a big noise at the beginning they are on the surface, they are the most visible part.

00:33:53--> 00:34:01

At the end of the process that will just disappear, dissipate, and they will no longer be there. The only thing that remains is the thing that will benefit people.

00:34:02--> 00:34:06

As simple as that that's what this life is all about is a very profound parable.

00:34:08--> 00:34:16

Then Allah subhanaw taala says as a result of all of this, you know this context of life, Lil levy in Australia, Abu Dhabi, Himalayas,

00:34:18--> 00:34:26

those who have responded positively to their Lord, they would receive the best and hustla is the best which is Jenna.

00:34:27--> 00:34:33

That means these people went through the test of life and they proved their pure substance

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

will lead in elemis ajibola, who anila homophily of the Jamia Mithra Houma, who left Adobe and those who refused to respond to Allah, those who refuse to respond to Allah subhanaw taala

00:34:48--> 00:34:58

even if they have everything on this earth, everything, like someone owns the earth and everything in it, you know, all the riches that are on this earth.

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

And it's like on top of it.

00:35:03--> 00:35:16

They would pay it to ransom themselves from the punishment of the Hellfire, but still will not be accepted that our last one that says he cannot homeschool he said these people will get the worst of reckoning

00:35:17--> 00:35:54

Allah subhanaw taala will hold them to account and their their account will be the worst one Jan the final aboard will be Hellfire will be sent me hard on what an evil place or resting place to be in. Now again and st Java, Allah subhanaw taala Solomon In fact, he says yeah, you are living in a study Bula He will surely either the Lima II come, or you who believe respond is the G is the G Bo respond to Allah and His Messenger, when they call you to that which gives you a life.

00:35:58--> 00:36:01

Okay, so how do you respond to Allah and His messenger?

00:36:03--> 00:36:43

You take what they give you, which gives you a life, which is the revelation, the revelation of Allah subhanaw taala. So Allah saying those who respond positively to a last minute Allah and to the call of His Messenger, these are the people who pass the trial of life, the test of life, the test of life, and what does give you a lot what gives you a life, the revelation, the water that comes down the water that comes down from the skies, which is the revelation that comes from Allah subhanaw taala. So in order for you to prove your pure substance, what do you have to do? Allah is giving us the secret to pass the test. In the previous verse, it's the job.

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

It's the job.

00:36:47--> 00:36:49

It's the job, what do you respond to?

00:36:51--> 00:37:25

That Ebola, he will accompany me, he can respond to Allah's Messenger, when they invite you or call you to that which gives you a life, what gives you life, the revelation that came from heavens, Revelation, so the only way to prove your pure substance is revelation. Holding on to the revelation. That's it, the Quran, and authentics will not have the profits or loss of them, there is no way you can pass the test of life without the revelation without the Quran, and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:37:26--> 00:37:41

Because in order to pass that test, you have to get your heart life and the only thing that gives life to the heart, not music, not stories, not any kind of love and human connection.

00:37:42--> 00:38:15

Not any sense of belonging. The only thing that gives life to your heart is the revelation from Allah subhanaw taala. The revelation from Allah subhanaw taala. So anyone who lives away from the Quran, and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, this is not the heart is not in a state of life, it's in a state of death, or at least extreme sickness. So lots of water is saying to us, you want to pass that kind of trial, you want to go through that fire and come out pure,

00:38:16--> 00:38:47

or you need to do is respond to Allah spent Allah to Allah. And you the way you respond to a law you respond to his book, you hold on to his book, under the sun of the sun, those who refuse to respond, they have failed the test, they have proved they have proved that their substance is impure. And they will not they were unable to hold on to the revelation, which we said is just like the rain. That's it. So they will end up and therefore on a previous day explained that some people think they Hellfire is that Allah subhanaw taala is gonna

00:38:48--> 00:39:05

that what these people did in this life, their sins were harmless. These were innocent sins, harmless sins, why do we punish them with the Hellfire? Someone chose to live their life according to their desires. They're harmless, innocent people. Why do you put them in the Hellfire

00:39:06--> 00:39:41

under people you know, presenting this kind of arguments says harmless sins, harmless sin, someone just he was with his girlfriend. So what's the big deal? Yeah, the relationship with a woman what's the big deal? Like they didn't destroy the world? We say no, in this life. We don't see everything. We don't see everything. What we see is limited. We don't see with it. We don't see. We don't see the whole context of life. So any sin that you commit and I said that previously, any sin that you commit what it does, it disturbs the balance which is enemies and in the creation of Allah.

00:39:42--> 00:40:00

And his sin you commit goes against the universal harmony that Allah put in this universe. And this is a big thing. It's invisible. So when you when someone new say someone says Oh, it's a harmless sin, or or he made the light to white light, it's harmless.

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

Some innocence in what's the big deal about it? Right? You're talking about the surface.

00:40:05--> 00:40:12

You're talking about the tip of the iceberg. You don't see what's behind, and you can't see it. You can't see it. I shoveled with a logo on her.

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

She mentioned a woman to the profit center.

00:40:19--> 00:40:35

And she said, Oh, she's that woman who's short. The short woman. She was a little bit sarcastic. Do you know what the prophets of Salaam said? This to show you what sin is for you with a simple comment right? Short woman what's the big deal? Right?

00:40:36--> 00:40:38

The professor's um said well, La Jolla.

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

polti Kalimantan no musi jet may be mad at Barry Masato.

00:40:46--> 00:41:00

He said Yeah, sure. And Arabic, Michel bajawa means the oceans. The time said will lie. Aisha, you may you said a word that if it were to be thrown away, if it were to be mixed with the water of the oceans, it would have changed them.

00:41:01--> 00:41:10

It would have changed them. And that's Alisha, the wife of the prophets of Salaam lovely lo Anna, who said a word, an innocent word sarcastically

00:41:11--> 00:41:24

about a woman who was not present, who wasn't there. The President said you made a word. You said a word. If it were to be mixed with the water of the oceans, it would change them.

00:41:25--> 00:42:06

So there is an invisible part of the sense and the good deeds that we do. There's an invisible part. So when someone commits a sin, they are violating some kind of equilibrium, some kind of a balance and harmony that runs through the universe because the whole universe obeys Allah, the whole universe worships Allah doesn't just obey Allah at all, worships Allah completely. So there's a powerful stream of universal obedience to Allah. When you go against it, you cause a lot of disturbance. When you send you go against it, and you're creating a lot of disturbance. You have to deal with the consequences of that disturbance. There's what a lot one that it says on the day of

00:42:06--> 00:42:21

judgment in the matrix zona quantum Milan, you will only be given what you did. So what people in the Hellfire receive that that's their actions, that's the back end of their actions that were invisible to them today. As simple as that.

00:42:26--> 00:42:26

Anyway,

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

some Another benefit of this,

00:42:44--> 00:42:46

of the metaphor

00:42:48--> 00:42:49

is that

00:42:53--> 00:43:11

sometimes we experience doubts as Muslims, you might have doubts about certain things. Some people have doubts about Islam start having doubts about Islam. Some people have doubts about one thing in Islam, some people start to have questions, serious questions, and it hurts them as well. This kind of doubt.

00:43:12--> 00:43:14

Now, Allah subhanaw taala is saying,

00:43:16--> 00:43:41

these doubts and these questions that might happen to you that might occur to you. Even some of the competitors complained to the prophets, I saw them that I have doubts coming to my, to my mind, go through my mind, one of the companions said and he said, that I find this very difficult. I don't want to I don't want to, I don't want to have these doubts, that I feel if I get on top of a high place and throw myself it's easier for me than having these doubts, doubts about Allah.

00:43:42--> 00:43:45

So the prophet SAW Selim, he says then so this company said our jet to Morocco.

00:43:47--> 00:44:25

Did you find this? Did you feel this? They said, Yes. He said, Sorry Halima. He says this attitude is a clear expression of your faith. The fact that you hate these doubts, the fact that you hate these doubts, why because these doubts come from shape. And so when you have doubts, don't panic. When you have doubts about Islam doubts about a man doubts about Allah doubts about one of the rulings in Islam, like some people have doubts about central rulings in Islam certain, you know, the penal law in Islam. What about this? What about this? What about that they start questioning things is there wisdom there, and so on and so forth. These doubts are just like the form on top of a body

00:44:25--> 00:44:26

of water.

00:44:27--> 00:44:51

Soon it will disappear. Soon it will disappear. A few Hold on, to what gives you a life which is the revelation of the prophets, the revelation that came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So the shower desires as well. Sometimes, a person sometimes is tried by a desire, and it happens. Like you could go through a stage in your life, where attraction to the opposite gender takes over.

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

You find yourself helpless. There are a lot of the youth who say like, recently I've been unable to control myself.

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

What we say hold on to the good things that you have in your faith, your Salah, do not give up your salon, keep praying.

00:45:08--> 00:45:13

You go to the metal keep going to the master they say what I hang around with with women.

00:45:14--> 00:45:56

Still Do not leave the masjid. Do not leave your Salah someone you know, they get into drugs, or they get into drinking alcohol. And they say I can't help it. We say, okay, you still doing it, you have to fight it. But no matter what happens, don't ever lose connection with Salah. Don't ever lose connection with the masjid. Don't ever lose connection with good people who remind you of our last panel, Tyler, you know, but I drink and I smoke weed and I do this and I okay, you do this, you have to fight this. But no matter how bad this gets, don't ever lose the connection with the Koran, with the prayer, and so on and so forth. And how often you see people, you know, I've seen this. So so

00:45:56--> 00:46:14

often that I remember even my religious one of my in school, we are obviously in Muslim countries, we have to be an Islamic, Islamic odine. We have Islamic education. So the teacher who used to teach me Islamic education in school,

00:46:15--> 00:46:17

he told the students about

00:46:19--> 00:46:20

one of his

00:46:21--> 00:46:26

earliest students, who was a very good student, very religious,

00:46:28--> 00:47:10

he would learn a lot he was very intelligent and do is memorize the Quran and so on and so forth. And then he said, but this students, when he went to university, he started speaking with women started smoking, doing bad stuff. So he went in the wrong way. And he used to speak about him a lot, speak about him a lot, speak about it a lot, speak about him a lot, speak about him a lot. And it became too much, it became too much to the point where he actually destroyed his reputation. And that person was clueless. That student was clueless. So he was busy with his life. Yes, he went, he took a wrong path. But smile a couple of years later, this guy, because when he was speaking about

00:47:10--> 00:47:16

him was speaking with pain. And he was speaking that I mean, people could lose their Deen

00:47:17--> 00:47:54

so badly when he was speaking with about him in a helpless or in a hopeless manner, and hopeless man. Well, a couple of years later, this guy comes back to the mustard. And he gives up on all his sense. And he becomes one of the main teachers in that mustard Come on teachers. And he becomes a very important religious figure in our city, you know, because a very influential person, and he does a lot of youth work and he has had a positive influence on the youth. Sometimes you give up on someone, but you don't know. You don't know. So maybe he went through a period of, you know,

00:47:55--> 00:48:02

going into some kind of sin or doing something wrong, and even distancing himself from Islam. But who knows people come back.

00:48:03--> 00:48:40

Because the truth what benefits people the truth could actually see it stay there. So don't judge by external, you know, by external features. Don't judge by that. And don't make a final judgment on someone you don't know. You do not know there are people who left Islam then came back to Islam. There are people like this. I'm in a couple of people. They left Islam they became atheists. They grew up in religious families. They gave up Islam at some stage in their life. So one of them about five years later, someone the other person has spent much longer than that being an atheist later on they came back

00:48:42--> 00:48:59

No, no. You don't know what why is this because a lot of these doubts a lot of these desires. They actually like the this kind of form that floats on the creek on a river. It will dissipate at some stage insha Allah

00:49:02--> 00:49:05

then Allah subhanaw taala now makes a comparison.

00:49:08--> 00:49:15

here and he says FM Ayala more unknown as either a leak Mr. Rob B can have Pokemon who are ama enumerator.

00:49:16--> 00:49:22

Allah sync is the one who knows that what was revealed to you is the truth from your Lord.

00:49:24--> 00:49:55

Is he like someone who's blind. So Allah is saying, In simple terms, that people who have come to believe that what you came with is the truth from your Lord. These are the people who have sight. These are the people who can truly see and the people who refuse to believe in this truth and they reject it and live in denial of this truth. These people are just blind. They're blind. And we know that blindness is a loss of organisms fulfiller of

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

life Kahuna via they have hearts

00:50:00--> 00:50:08

with which they do not comprehend, does not understand. And by the way, there's something about the brain and the heart. The brain understands,

00:50:09--> 00:50:10

you know, details,

00:50:12--> 00:50:14

understands specific things.

00:50:15--> 00:50:27

But the heart understands bigger facts. I'll give you an example. I receive a lot of questions. Someone says, I know Allah is there for me. But I still feel desperate.

00:50:29--> 00:50:33

I know Allah is going to help me. Okay? But I still panic.

00:50:35--> 00:50:37

So they say, help me out.

00:50:38--> 00:50:42

I know Allah is there for me. But I still can't feel it.

00:50:43--> 00:51:10

So this is mental knowledge, mental knowledge does not. And not the way we use it in English, we say, you know, something in your mind or you know, in your heart, or you say, I know something, intellectually, or I know emotionally, emotionally. It's what we call emotional knowledge that really benefits that really benefits. If I know that you are trustworthy. I'm not gonna, if I give you something to look after, I'm not gonna worry about that.

00:51:12--> 00:51:30

But if I think oh, you're good, but I still have my doubts. Okay. Oh, you have proven you have a clear record. But I still don't believe I don't feel comfortable towards you. I don't feel comfortable. So when I give you something to look after, I still beat you feel worried. So last month is saying here, people are who know

00:51:31--> 00:52:18

that you are upon the truth. It's not they know this intellectually. They believe in it. They know emotionally, they know it in the heart. They have no doubt about it. They have peace about it. And this is what a man comes from the word a man in Arabic. It comes from M and M what's M is peace. When you know something, and you have peace about it. That's what a man is. But you could know something intellectually, but you're not in peace with it. That's not a man. That's not a man. So last month is Islam kulu life Kahuna, Bihar they have hearts with which they cannot come they do not comprehend. So many people know that this life is not the end. So many people know there is a

00:52:18--> 00:52:36

Hellfire, and there is paradise. And they will, people will be judged on the Day of Judgment. But still, these people don't pray. They don't fast. They didn't do anything to prepare for the afterlife. They know what in their heads. Like what they don't they don't know what's in their hearts. So they don't act on it.

00:52:38--> 00:52:44

Long Herbalife Corona behala home is my own area. And they have ears with which they cannot hear.

00:52:46--> 00:52:53

ears with which they cannot hear when you can hear something right. But if it does not give you the lesson, what's the point?

00:52:55--> 00:52:56

What's the point? It's like you speak to a child.

00:52:58--> 00:53:03

Tell them sit down, they say okay, but it's still standing Sit down. Okay.

00:53:04--> 00:53:06

I said sit down, they say, Okay.

00:53:07--> 00:53:23

You say, Can you hear me? Well, they obviously can hear you. But because they're not responding, you say you don't hear, you can't hear. That's what a lot is talking about these people, they can hear with their ears, but it does not reach the hearts, they do not benefit from it.

00:53:25--> 00:53:25

What

00:53:27--> 00:53:34

they have eyes with which they cannot see. But these people see, right. But they don't see what's behind the visible.

00:53:35--> 00:53:47

Like they see. They say you don't have to, you can't you know reading the lines or what's what's in the lines will not benefit you. You need to see what's between the lines in order to understand.

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

And this is why they say a lot of the meanings are actually in silence.

00:53:53--> 00:53:58

A lot of the meanings are in silence. Like I could say the same statement in different ways. pose a different

00:54:00--> 00:54:03

points give you a completely different meaning, right? But I'm saying the same thing.

00:54:05--> 00:54:12

But different poses will change the meaning. So this is why they say there's more meaning in silence than in speech.

00:54:13--> 00:54:31

There's more meaning in silence than in speech. That's true to a certain extent. So a lot smarter is saying that people who believe that what you received or sent to you is the truth. These are people who can see the ones who do not believe in this or deny this. These are blind. There are losses in numbers are

00:54:33--> 00:54:50

indeed the only ones who will remember are the people of Alabama, the people of sound hearts, the people of sound hearts, and we spoke previously so many times about the meaning of telecom that the Quran refers to itself as declaw

00:54:51--> 00:54:56

as Vicar as 10th Kiera reminder reminder of what

00:54:57--> 00:55:00

reminded me when I say let me repeat

00:55:00--> 00:55:18

remind you, I'm reminding you of something you already know. Because if I give you a new piece of information, I don't say I'm reminding you, right? I'll say I'm educating you. I'm sharing information with you. Right? I'm telling you something new. But I only say I'm reminding you when I say something you already know but you forgot about it.

00:55:19--> 00:55:20

Isn't it?

00:55:21--> 00:55:28

So Allah Swanton in the Quran is saying in the Maya terra cotta, Al Bab, the only ones who will truly remember are the people of sound hearts. Remember what?

00:55:30--> 00:55:47

Remember what we said we are born believers. We are born we know Allah. We are born we love Allah. We are born we want Allah. It's only the external influences later on that blemish that beauty and that reality. So the revelation comes to do what

00:55:48--> 00:55:53

remind you of that pristine nature that you were born into your Fatah.

00:55:54--> 00:56:04

It reminds you that and brings you back to it, it brings you back to it. So Allah is saying the only ones who will truly remember that means they will come back to their true nature are the ones of sound hearts.

00:56:05--> 00:56:24

So that's what the revelation does the revelation brings you back to your federa that's what it does. There's a perfect match between your structure as a human being your design as a human being your original design, and your factory settings if you like and the revelation they are compatible, perfectly compatible the same.

00:56:26--> 00:56:31

before Allah sent you the revelation, he instilled it inside of you in the shape of photons.

00:56:33--> 00:56:50

At your heart at your core, that's what you are. So the Quran is not strange. It's not an alien kind of thing. It's not trying to change humans. No, it's the Koran and the sooner or what they do they restore you back to factory settings. That's it. That's what the Quran Sunnah do.

00:56:51--> 00:56:59

So they're not kidnapping human nature away. They're not taking you away from where you are. No, they are honest. And they say, here is what you truly are.

00:57:01--> 00:57:08

And because you lost it, and because you so much attached to the external world, we're going to give you an external reminder of it. Here it is, go ahead.

00:57:14--> 00:57:27

So Allah subhanaw taala now describes these people, a very good description, beautiful description of the people who have sound hearts, people who have sound has to show you again that this resonates with the halaqa, the last couple of helpers that I gave after measureup

00:57:28--> 00:57:37

on Friday and Saturday, about Islam. So we are talking now about the hidey hole which the state the state where we're talking about the Hadith,

00:57:38--> 00:57:58

that show that there is so many pathways to Allah, there's so many pathways to goodness, almost, actually everything in life could lead you to Allah subhanaw taala. And we said what the process of Sodom says even a smile and I swear to hammock, Allah, a nice word, a smile, anything you do, even a person approaching their wife intimately.

00:57:59--> 00:58:40

This is an act of charity, in a sense, it's a good deed. It's a good deed. So you could be earning has an attitude, everything you do in this life. So Allah subhanaw taala now describes these Alabama, the people of sound hearts, who are they a lot of same lesbian, a foreigner via delay, while our young children and mythique those who stay truthful to the covenant of Allah subhanaw taala. And they never break their promise. They never break their promise. And that's really in essence that what Islam is Islam is about you being authentic, being true to Allah, being true to the nature that Allah designed you according to. That's what Islam is. Santa says, stay truthful,

00:58:41--> 00:58:55

straight truthful, to who you are to the covenant inside you, which is your federa. Allah is taking the covenant By the way, before coming to this life. We were alive in some shape of life. We don't remember it. And you know why we don't remember it.

00:58:56--> 00:59:00

Because we don't, because as we said, we don't see everything now.

00:59:01--> 00:59:17

We are living and limited consciousness in this world. Keep this in your in your mind. We are given a limited consciousness in this world. So there are things that happened in the past that we forgot the things that happened to us before birth that we forgot.

00:59:19--> 00:59:26

And there are things that we know that now we know it in our hearts, but we cannot see them now so our minds forgot about them.

00:59:27--> 00:59:32

And I'll give you the example. Sometimes you sleep, you have a dream. You wake up.

00:59:34--> 00:59:39

Do you remember your dreams? Sometimes? Most of your dreams you don't remember them by the way.

00:59:40--> 00:59:45

Most of your dreams you don't remember them. Why? Because you're moving to a different level of consciousness.

00:59:48--> 00:59:50

That level of consciousness of sleep you remember them.

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

But when you come to the awakening or to the waking level of consciousness, you have moved to a different world.

01:00:00--> 01:00:26

So you don't remember those. So this is why, before birth before birth, and before the even our, the creation of us all, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah He says in the Quran, Allah says we are a book I mean Benny Adama min Buhari him burrito, wash had the home either emphysema LS to become aloevera shahidullah Allah am fusina saying salado. So there are

01:00:31--> 01:00:40

a lot of saying that a lot took from the back of Adam, all his progeny. Every individual human being a lot broke down from the back of Adam.

01:00:42--> 01:00:55

And then Allah made us stand in front of him all of us together and he said, Am I not your Lord? And as to be able to become I'm not sure Am I not your Rob? Each one of us said yes, indeed.

01:00:56--> 01:00:58

Each one of us Do you remember that?

01:00:59--> 01:01:07

I don't remember the exact moment. But your heart knows it. And that's why your heart seeks Allah because it wants to stay true to that word.

01:01:09--> 01:01:10

That's why your heart pushes you to Allah.

01:01:12--> 01:01:17

And when you are far away from Allah you have gives you pain is that's not what we agreed upon.

01:01:19--> 01:01:30

And how does it communicate this to you? By making giving us a sense of vacuum? I feel desperate in life. What's the point? What's the point? I feel a sense of guilt sometimes.

01:01:31--> 01:01:35

I'm not fulfilling what I saw what I signed up for.

01:01:36--> 01:01:39

So we all search online. Yes, indeed. There are last month Allah says

01:01:41--> 01:01:43

allow us to grow and become carlu better

01:01:45--> 01:01:58

emphysematous develop become Paolo Bella shahina we all of us said yes indeed we testify. We bear witness we testify and all in Nakayama kurama and takuna

01:01:59--> 01:02:03

why shadow Milan persimilis develop become carlu Bella shahina and Taku

01:02:05--> 01:02:05

Someone save

01:02:07--> 01:02:17

and hello in acuna. Often anyway, that less to say, we were unaware of this. We were unconscious of this

01:02:18--> 01:02:19

that you weren't overlord.

01:02:21--> 01:02:53

So we had this previously. And that's what we remember. By the way. That's where the revelation revelation reminds us of that is why sometimes you'll read the Koran, sometimes you will only listen to hold on. And you feel you know this, it takes you home, somehow. It's a homely feeling. There's no words to describe it. At some level, you'll recognize this and you don't know how this is happening. This is a spiritual experience. And this is when the heart the Koran hits according your heart, about your connection with the last one about your covenant with Allah.

01:02:55--> 01:02:56

So

01:02:57--> 01:03:12

we have a covenant with the last panatela, we signed a contract with Allah, we signed a contract with Allah, that he's the one Lord. And when he brings us into this life, we're going to worship Him, you signed up for that. You signed up for that.

01:03:13--> 01:03:26

And the your test is that you are brought into this life with a limited level of consciousness, and limited level of perception. There are so many sounds around us, we don't hear them. Animals could hear some of them, but we don't hear them.

01:03:28--> 01:03:36

There are so many things around us, by the way, we don't see them. There are angels, there is jinn, we don't see them. But the moment you die,

01:03:38--> 01:03:41

straightaway, your level of consciousness as consciousness expands,

01:03:42--> 01:03:49

expands and start to see everything for what it really is. That moment you will remember your covenant with Allah.

01:03:50--> 01:03:59

You will remember it exactly as it was, you will see it without a shadow of doubt. You will see it clearly and you realize I wasn't in sleep.

01:04:00--> 01:04:05

I was I was I was sleeping in that life. I was I wasn't aware of that.

01:04:06--> 01:04:16

But I lost pounds. I sent the revelation as a reminder to remind you of that. So even though I forgot and by the way, do you know what happens when we connect to Allah subhanaw taala.

01:04:17--> 01:04:23

When we are the more you purify your heart, do you know what happens? The impurities of this life?

01:04:25--> 01:04:26

They will

01:04:28--> 01:04:29

I want to put this right.

01:04:36--> 01:04:38

The sins that we do.

01:04:40--> 01:04:52

The negligence that we have towards online, the bad things that we do the bad thoughts about beliefs about convictions, the doubts that we have to know what they do. You see the limited level of consciousness that we have. They even make it smaller.

01:04:54--> 01:04:59

They even make it smaller. But when you connect more to allow your truth or more to allow

01:05:00--> 01:05:04

That level of consciousness that you have expands, you start to see more,

01:05:06--> 01:05:41

you will start to see more. And this is well basilar comes from. This is where deep insight comes from. This is where we feel a strong sense of intuition we you see through things, you will start to see through things that you were unable to see previously. And that's why the prophets of Solomon says it the Kofi rasa, tell men be aware of the ferocity, the deep sense of intuition of a believer, they can look at you and they can see Abdullah Massoud, he won one time he said to some of his students, he says, Hello, Maya chia hadoken Elena. Wolfie eignet Rosita

01:05:42--> 01:05:49

This is why, why some of you come and sit with us. When in their eyes, I can see the signs of Xena.

01:05:51--> 01:06:02

And that student was astonished was shocked. He said, when I was coming here, there was a woman wasn't dressed, dressed up properly I saw her I wanted to take my eyes away but I kept staring at her.

01:06:04--> 01:06:05

However long so notice.

01:06:07--> 01:06:10

So that limited level of consciousness

01:06:11--> 01:06:15

starts to expand when you are truthful to Allah so you will start to

01:06:16--> 01:06:36

see and find in the Quran more lessons. You start to remember things you start to feel more the connection to Allah subhana wa tada and that's a gift from Allah subhanaw taala that's a gift from Allah subhana wa Tada. So alladhina Euphorbia Angela Luna, Alameda

01:06:37--> 01:06:41

when Latina, Luna Mr. de la who'll be here your solo show not on

01:06:42--> 01:06:56

one description of another description of those people is that they connect whatever a lot, whatever Allah commanded to be connected, and that shows connection to your kids. People are related to you select

01:06:57--> 01:07:09

Silla to Arrowhead. So you check on your relatives, check on your parents, check on your siblings, check on your cousins, on your aunts, uncles, and so on so forth, you keep the connection with them.

01:07:10--> 01:07:15

You see if they need help you help them out. And you keep good connections with them. And also another type of Silla

01:07:17--> 01:07:18

is basically

01:07:20--> 01:07:21

every

01:07:22--> 01:07:43

it could be also the Brotherhood in Islam. They have brothers in Islam, you keep checking on them. Another type of sealer is that you help the poor, you help the needy, that's another type of salah and the most important type of sealer that you have which is connection that you need. So very keep the connections that Allah commands them to keep the most important connection is with a lime self.

01:07:45--> 01:07:53

So these people keep their connection with Allah connection with the profits or loss in them through his son through following his example. And following these commands.

01:07:54--> 01:08:43

We are showing that on bottom and these people fear the LORD, they feel the punishment of their mode, they fear Allah subhanaw taala way heartfulness and the fear the fear that they might end up having Sewell hisab which is having a reckoning or a judgment by a law that is negative or that is bad. So they fear that when they stand before Allah subhanaw taala they don't want to go through an extreme kind of hardship. They don't want you know, they fear that their sins will give them a very harsh or difficult standing in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala So actually, there's there's a lot of beautiful description here so I'm not going to I will stop here and then next time, I will recap

01:08:44--> 01:08:52

and I will carry on with the description there are important things and some points where we need we will need to spend some time on inshallah. So we will stop here

01:08:54--> 01:08:54

was allotted amount of

01:08:56--> 01:09:00

time and specific questions about this. About what we said today. Yes.

01:09:04--> 01:09:05

What one thing

01:09:08--> 01:09:08

y'all walked

01:09:12--> 01:09:14

past okay. Anyone who wants to play

01:09:15--> 01:09:19

live, they can chill all the time is on. Okay, let's take questions.

01:09:29--> 01:09:29

Yep.

01:09:32--> 01:09:40

This, this is consistent with the notion that a sin is something that you are doing against Allah

01:09:42--> 01:09:43

separating

01:09:44--> 01:09:45

this concept of the present from

01:09:46--> 01:09:51

authority to something a lot in that our sin actually something that is done

01:09:54--> 01:09:56

as opposed to the universities.

01:09:59--> 01:10:00

That's a good question.

01:10:00--> 01:10:04

We have to separate between a lot in between his creation, which is the universe.

01:10:05--> 01:10:28

Our sins will never harm Allah subhanaw taala will never harm Allah Allah subhanaw taala will never, ever time for only one Tableau to refer to all my servants, you will never get to a point where you can harm me, you'll never get to a point where you can benefit me. So nothing harms Allah subhanaw taala. But Allah subhanaw taala created this universe in a state of harmony,

01:10:29--> 01:10:42

and balance, and everything goes according to this balance. So this way it's maintained. So only humans in general are given the choice. If they follow the command of Allah, they would blend into this universal balance

01:10:44--> 01:11:17

and life would be perfect for them. This is what a loss McConnell says about the People of the Scripture well unknown upon what or what it will entail a woman is either a mother or being a woman named woman, Tatiana, Julian. If these people implemented the revelation that was revealed to them from Allah and the Torah and the Injeel, they would have eaten from underneath and from above. Other verses as well indicate that when when humans follow the commands of Allah, Allah will shower them with blessings and Providence and so on and so forth. Why? Because once you obey Allah, you have blend into this universal

01:11:18--> 01:11:42

equilibrium, and it will start to serve you, it will start to give you its fruits. That's the point. So when you go against the word of a lie, go against the command of Allah, against the sovereignty of Allah, yes, but Allah has, Allah has given you that space to test you with. So we're not harming Allah. But we are going against the word and instruction of Allah at our own risk. And we will pay for that.

01:11:43--> 01:11:54

Does it harm Allah doesn't harm Allah but it harms the university does. It does harm the universe. This is why some narrations indicate that people who do good everything in this universe

01:11:55--> 01:11:58

seeks forgiveness for them and people who

01:12:00--> 01:12:48

who commit sin. It causes destruction to the universal laws of magnetism salata rhombohedral, facade of liberty will battery be maximum alienness you know, the corruption and deficiency has appeared on the land in the sea because of the sins because of what humans have committed. And towards the end of time, the promises that have indicated that when it comes and the rule by the word of Allah and almost everyone on earth becomes Muslim, the earth will bring about everything good in it, to the extent that it would say about eight people would eat to their fill from one pomegranates, one, one pomegranate, will fill up eight people, and they would rest in the shade of its skin of this kind of

01:12:49--> 01:12:50

that pomegranate.

01:12:51--> 01:12:53

This isn't no GM foods.

01:12:54--> 01:13:00

This is the Baraka from Earth. Why? Because when humans worship a lot, everything serves them because

01:13:01--> 01:13:16

of because of that balance. you're feeding positively positively into that balance. So we're not harming Allah, we but we go against the word of Allah, and he gave us that choice. But we do disturb the disbalance in the universe to a certain extent. Yes.

01:13:18--> 01:13:18

Yeah.

01:13:21--> 01:13:22

revelations of

01:13:23--> 01:13:24

Revelation.

01:13:25--> 01:13:25

Revelation

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

is

01:13:30--> 01:13:37

the exploitation of the identification of what is authentic or not authentic? What is what is its level? What is its ruling?

01:13:41--> 01:13:41

Yep.

01:13:51--> 01:13:55

Okay, the Quran is revelation and the Sooners revelation. That's true.

01:13:57--> 01:14:06

But there's no there's a lot of human elements and its preservation and explanation, and so on and so forth. But even the Koran and its preservation, there's a human element.

01:14:08--> 01:14:11

Allah guaranteed its preservation, but how does this preservation happen?

01:14:12--> 01:14:57

Happiness through people memorizing it, documenting it, right, that's how it happens the same way. Now, there's differences among the scholars with regards to the authentic sinner, but for the most part they agree upon, especially for the core Hadith, you're talking about Buhari and Muslim and the main bodies of the bigger books of Hadith like the four sunon Muslim Imam Muhammad. And these bigger collections of Hadith. There's a great agreement on most of them, and most of them, but yet there remains a number of Hadith, a certain, I would say, margin of Hadith, where there is disagreement, but that kind of disagreement or that kind of space there. Okay. Definitely that was destined by

01:14:57--> 01:14:59

Allah subhanaw taala. And there's not really

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

amiesh does not blemish that most, for the most part of the Hadith, the oma has agreed upon whether they are authentic or inauthentic. Okay, so and we have to remember that our striving to implement Islam will never reach 100%.

01:15:16--> 01:15:38

But the point is in striving, the point is in striving, that's it. So the same thing applies to the center. So the yes is the revelation. And as laymen Muslims, or what we have to do is follow the scholars that we trust in terms of its authentic or not, and we don't have to go for that's often what you need to do. And you have got the guidance, don't worry about this.

01:15:39--> 01:15:51

Don't worry about this. So the the Hadith where there is differences, disagreement among some scholars, okay. Both people who disagree about that they're all safe, inshallah, not a big deal. Not a big issue.

01:15:55--> 01:15:58

Like, if you look into medicine, by look into medicine,

01:16:03--> 01:16:16

any kind of surgery, or serious surgery, you'll find there is there's a margin of error, that sometimes goes up to 25%. If you're going to calculate this by number, you might no go for surgery.

01:16:17--> 01:16:33

Even a doctor might not go for surgery, but they know that any human effort has this margin of error. This is how life goes. Even when you buy a car, you buy a new car, by the way, there's a margin of error. There's about 15% of new cars that actually are actually a wreck.

01:16:34--> 01:16:45

And will come to break within the first six months of their functioning. And there's no there's no refund on that. But people still go and buy new cars, right? That's how it goes.

01:16:47--> 01:16:49

Like this is what life is it's a human experience.

01:17:08--> 01:17:16

Actually, I think the parables and the metaphors in the Quran are actually quite simple and straightforward. But sometimes

01:17:17--> 01:17:42

we might have a linguistic barrier. Or sometimes people who explain them might make them difficult. So I'm not sure how easy I made them. I am sure when I was explaining them, I felt some maybe I did not sometimes convey the message. But that depends on my state of mind. Sometimes I just feel better. And the words flow more easily. And I'm able to elucidate things a bit make them a bit more clear. But maybe not necessarily today.

01:17:43--> 01:17:52

So I think sometimes the person who explains the mind not so sure the simplicity, yet the depth in them.

01:17:53--> 01:17:56

But what is there anything specific you find very difficult?

01:18:03--> 01:18:04

Yeah.

01:18:08--> 01:18:13

Okay, yeah, here, the ones who comprehend that are the ones of knowledge right? Now we are afraid.

01:18:14--> 01:18:36

That's what we're talking about knowledge of the heart, you can figure it in your head. But you have to hear they take it to heart as well. That's what it means here. Yeah. So those who really benefit from it, not necessarily understand it, although, although some of the scholars like one scholar, when he read this verse, he felt bad about himself. He said, that means if I don't understand something,

01:18:37--> 01:18:54

there's a bad sign about me. Okay. But anyway, this could be to a certain extent, but I think here is grasping the point behind it really not understanding the the logical point there. It's just taking it to heart and benefiting from it. That's what the verse is talking about.

01:18:56--> 01:18:58

Logical offi Okay, no more questions.

01:19:09--> 01:19:12

I was thinking, I remember hearing that.

01:19:15--> 01:19:35

Yes. Very good example. Yes. And agile is what was white it was as stone from heaven from, from Jenna from Paradise. But and it was white, it turned black because of the sins of human beings. Yes. We need to realize what kind of universe we're living in.

01:19:36--> 01:20:00

Our sins have serious, serious consequences. We don't see them in this world. Or we see very little of them in this world, but they have a deep end. That is invisible to us. And the problem is people will only see that on the Day of Judgment, but a lot informed us that's the point Allah has informed us about them. I was informed us that sins will do this.

01:20:00--> 01:20:09

To you, since will do this, that's how you will pay for them. There's a Hellfire, you'll pay for these sins, Allah will punish you, so on and so forth. So Allah has made the making it clear.

01:20:11--> 01:20:39

So that's the issue, but we will only get to sit but people don't believe in this. Or many people don't believe in this. They will only believe in it when they see when they see with their own eyes, and then it would be too late. But yes, your sins have an impact as well as what was white and became black because of the sins of children of Adam. And there are indications from the prophets of Salaam that even rain would be held because of the sins of humans.

01:20:40--> 01:20:54

The Baraka blessings from everything will be taken away because of the sins of humans. Yeah, so we don't live separate like we are part of a deeper equilibrium that science cannot figure out because science depends on the our perception of the five senses.

01:20:57--> 01:21:12

Okay, vartika long FICO. So alongside him and beat him hamadryad he was so happy he was. So again just reminder of the times of the class or the halaqa It's Saturday morning, Sunday morning or the morning halaqa. Saturday, Sunday and

01:21:14--> 01:21:20

Tuesday and Thursday, Tuesday and Thursday. Yes Tuesday and has developed a lot of vehicles
