In the middle who wants to eat and wants to feel when are all below him in surely unforeseen hours a year?

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

A year the level Philomel Bula warmer your blue for her dear. Why should we allow you to have long weather Allahu la sharika shadow Adnan Mohammed Abdullah who was so long, he was so happy he was a LaMotta, Sleeman kto all that. So we started already with Surat Ibrahim, Ibrahim, this of Cyril. So I blocked him.

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

And we

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

explained

00:00:46--> 00:01:10

that one of the most important points after conveying the message was that Musa alayhis salam told them that ALLAH SubhanA, Allah made a clear declaration, which is if you're thankful, if you're grateful, you live a life of gratitude, sugar, then Allah shall increase you, Allah shall increase you. And that comes by the way from the name of Allah subhanaw taala Shaco. One of the names of Allah is a shortcode.

00:01:11--> 00:01:21

A shortcode. That means he's thankful he's grateful, Allah appreciates what you do. So even the little things you do Allah subhanaw taala appreciates them, and Allah pays back for them.

00:01:23--> 00:01:39

Sometimes we do good things, and we don't see an immediate response or immediate payoff. And we might sometimes either question what we did, or we might even undermine the value of what we did. And these actually, these are two

00:01:40--> 00:02:09

outside pitfalls that people often fall to. So whatever good you do for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala will never go to waste. It will never go to waste and the province of Solomon some Hadith he mentioned that some people will stand in the presence of Allah Subhan Allah on the day of judgment, and there will be surprised about Hassan ads in the records, they have no clue where these came from, or there were small things they did and they just forgot about them. But Allah subhanaw taala kept them for them.

00:02:14--> 00:02:29

I said Musa said to his people are the most integral unto woman will oblige me and for in Allah, love only Yun Hamid, that if you are ungrateful if you are, if you disbelieve in Allah subhanaw taala, that you're not going to affect the last one, you're not going to do any harm. And the last one

00:02:32--> 00:02:53

is free of need. He doesn't need his creation doesn't need their worship, he doesn't need their devotion, and the last Fantana is praiseworthy by himself. You You're not going to add anything to Allah by worshipping Him or observing him and women's in the Hadith according to the Divine Hadith, that even if all the creation everything in the creation worships Allah is not going to add to Allah subhanaw taala anything.

00:02:56--> 00:03:03

And now we come to this verse. Alemany article nebo Liliana mankapur They come call me no hand wired in with a Motorola didn't remember the

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

watch the explain this.

00:03:08--> 00:03:26

Judge was wrong be paying it forward the idea here for him mahalo in California Habima or sintomi we're in that if you should keep me matted owner in a Henry Allah's Montana says, didn't you receive within the news reach you about the nations that came before? And this basically

00:03:27--> 00:04:01

this is mainly directed at people of Polish. The disbelievers of Polish who disbelieved but also applies to any disbelieving nation. So last one, China says that all these nations that came before Allah's destroyed them, and the prophets came to them with clear signs, yet they rejected them and they disbelieved and they said we are endowed with what you what you were sent to him. Now, here's where we're going to start because we stopped here last time. Our letrozole home aphylla Haitian

00:04:02--> 00:04:10

family this summer was the will of the year the only healthy or recommend you know become where you are FIRA Camila agilely mucem.

00:04:11--> 00:04:15

Now the response of their prophets and messengers was, first of all,

00:04:17--> 00:04:26

it was more of a bafflement like they were sort of shocked. You are in doubt of Allah subhanaw taala

00:04:27--> 00:04:33

you are in doubt, affiliation is there doubt about Allah, like this is inconceivable,

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

inconceivable that you doubt the presence and the existence of Allah subhanaw taala. And not only that, that you even doubt his right to be worshipped. So that shows that reason and Revelation go hand in hand. And when our reason leads us our so called reason leads us to anything other than faith, we should question it. Because reason can reason is based on rationalizations

00:05:00--> 00:05:29

The mind can go astray. Because it has a lot of weaknesses, the mind depends on information. If I if there is lack of information, you cannot make good reason, by the way, you cannot make good reason, you can be the most intelligent person on earth. But if you lack the necessary information, you cannot arrive at a correct conclusion. This is why you need information. So, this is why the mind is dependent on information. And we know that we don't have all the information.

00:05:30--> 00:06:12

We know you can be intelligent, but you cannot solve a problem unless you have enough information, enough data about it. If you don't have enough data, you're going to create a mess. Even if you're intelligent, even if you have other tools, you can't because intelligence needs information intelligence is patterns in order to for these patterns to function and provide you with good outcomes, you need information. So that to apply this intelligence on without without information, intelligence is is useless. So when whenever our rationalization our logic does not lead to anything that that agrees with Revelation, we have to question it, we have to question it. There are so many

00:06:12--> 00:06:40

issues, there are so many faults. There is something called there's a field of studies of science, and it's in the field of psychology they call it cognitive bias. cognitive bias means cognitive is meaning your thinking process, your mental process. So we have bias. We have different types of biases like we we arrive at illogical conclusions, the mind is how it does.

00:06:42--> 00:06:52

Even when the information is there, that's human beings to show that rationalization or mind is not perfect. It has faults, it has problems it has issues.

00:06:57--> 00:07:06

So call us was from a fella he shook the doubt about Allah subhanaw taala Is there really doubt what Allah and there is something that's very interesting.

00:07:08--> 00:07:19

Usually people ask for the evidence for the proof that Allah is there, people who question the Creator, they say, Where's the evidence? Where's the proof that God is there? The

00:07:20--> 00:07:26

The ironic thing is that Allah is the proof for everything.

00:07:27--> 00:07:28

Allah is the ultimate proof.

00:07:30--> 00:07:32

He's the ultimate proof.

00:07:33--> 00:07:39

For everything, Allah is more evident than any of us. Allah is more evident than anything that we can perceive.

00:07:40--> 00:07:43

Yet you are asking for, let's say,

00:07:45--> 00:08:16

a second or a be great evidence to prove and a great evidence. It's ironic, you have reversed the process Allah is the most evident thing in existence, or was the most evidence so when we questioned him and we we search for evidence that Allah exists that means that we have adopted a faulty logic process, a faulty mental process in our approach to Allah subhanaw taala and that's what humanity is suffering from now. And there is something about humans

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

most humans cannot see the fault of their own thinking.

00:08:21--> 00:08:36

Most people cannot see the faults of their own thinking and this is why Allah Tala repeatedly in the eyes says okay daddy because again adequately omit omitted. And thus we have beautified for every people, their actions, you know, when you believe in an idea, you don't see faults in it.

00:08:38--> 00:08:53

It's not because there's no faults because you fail to see the faults. That's how that's how the mind thinks when you believe in an idea your mind is going to blind you to anything that goes against this idea. That's how we think that's how we humans function.

00:08:55--> 00:08:55

So

00:08:59--> 00:09:39

so your thought process is always beautified for you you think you now look at what's happening between let's get a little bit political what's happening in the Gulf now right wherever you go everyone has the solution to what's happening between these countries in the Gulf Saudi Emirates Bahrain and others against Qatar everyone is gonna break down the the whole situation for you as if they know everything. These are right, these are on the right, these are on the wrong and so on and so forth. You're gonna find people on both sides and everyone believes their case is perfect and they make full sense.

00:09:41--> 00:09:42

So who's who's on the right

00:09:44--> 00:09:58

that's how we humans are any any political issue, bring it about, you're gonna find people disagreeing about it. These people think I know him very well. My idea of it is perfect. My analysis of it is the best or the one thinks the same. Everyone thinks they're right.

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

That's

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

how the mind thinks. So

00:10:02--> 00:10:30

call it rational fly check the prophets and messengers, they say, How come you even have doubts about Allah? How can you have doubts about about Allah, that shows that these people aren't a faulty place when it comes to their logic when it comes to their understanding, and how they're trying to relate to Allah subhanahu water and according to shalom, as India, he should confirm this and it will. He is the originator, the Creator of the heavens and the earth.

00:10:32--> 00:10:45

That's where you came from, you doubt the source of your existence. That's where that's that's the the irony. That's the irony. So Allah is more evident than even you are the newer.

00:10:46--> 00:11:07

And this is why it's important to understand as well, what it what type of evidence, the problem is that we have fallen, for some kind of fantasy that some scientists, not all scientists, some scientists propagate, and they champion, and that if you cannot measure it, it doesn't exist. If you don't see it, it doesn't exist if you can't touch it, if you can't smell it, it doesn't exist.

00:11:09--> 00:11:17

And we say this is problematic, because that talks about the creation, there is a whole unseen world that's far bigger than the seen world, far bigger than that.

00:11:19--> 00:11:23

And the relationship between them as organic, is very dynamic.

00:11:25--> 00:11:57

So if you're trying to figure out Allah only if you limit what exists and what doesn't exist only to your five senses, that's a big limitation is going to limit the experience of human beings. And this is why humanity has always had the study of metaphysics, metaphysics means beyond the physical world, something beyond, which is the world of the unseen. People have always had this, because I've always studied this. I've always believed in something that cannot be captured with the five senses, anyway, so

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

call it awesome affiliation.

00:12:01--> 00:12:25

And I just want you to contemplate and dwell on the innocence of this response. The prophets and messengers that were sent to their people, to sell them to worship Allah, Allah. Don't associate partners with Allah. Don't live next live negligent to Allah don't live, ungrateful to Allah, yet the response that they received,

00:12:26--> 00:12:42

that we even doubt the existence of the Creator. So for them innocently, these messengers say, I feel that he shed doubt about Allah. Is there doubt about Allah? That they were baffled? That was shocked? What are you saying?

00:12:44--> 00:12:55

hello to someone. Offline shock factor is inevitable. So he is the Originator of the heavens and the earth and now you question but your existence depends on Allah.

00:12:57--> 00:13:17

Now you're going to deny the existence of Allah even question it. If Allah He Shrek is not even they're not talking about denial here. They're talking about doubt. These prophets and messengers, they even like find it so inconceivable that these people have doubts that alone arrive at a conclusion that Allah doesn't exist.

00:13:19--> 00:13:36

So even the issue of doubt, is so big and shocking. What about denying the existence of Allah subhanaw taala completely. Then they say to him, Oh, that was salam Fe Allah He shack, father is somewhat you without now there is something important here that

00:13:38--> 00:13:45

if you look the prophets and the messengers, they don't seem here to have tried to prove the existence of Allah

00:13:47--> 00:13:55

they used a very simple statement very straightforward statement. And it's basically he is the Originator of the heavens and the earth including yourself that's it.

00:13:56--> 00:13:57

That's it.

00:13:58--> 00:14:05

Because if this if this if this does not get get you to a point where you really question your logic

00:14:07--> 00:14:19

It seems you're not neutral, your approach is not neutral. So that's what they said to them a fella he should converter isn't our to is there doubt about the Originator of the heavens in the earth? Simply look at the creation.

00:14:21--> 00:14:40

Look at the creation, look at the existence where it come from. You have all this in, everything is in place, everything's designed perfectly. The beautiful design of this universe, how everything is fine tune all of that. And this is why even in science they you know, and they even they have issues about this.

00:14:42--> 00:14:47

Some, some scientists find the beautiful, amazing,

00:14:49--> 00:14:56

mind boggling accuracy and perfection about the creation and they call it intelligent design.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

They call it intelligent design. There is intelligence

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

lying behind everything in the universe. And there is some kind of monopoly and some kind of Mafia in the scientific world that are persecuting these scientists. If you use intelligent design, you will be ostracized.

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

You will be

00:15:17--> 00:15:25

denied grants to do scientific research, you will lose your position. I think there was a there was a documentary

00:15:29--> 00:15:30

about

00:15:31--> 00:15:40

persecuting scientists who have done work, included in their research, anything about intelligent design.

00:15:41--> 00:15:58

They have lost their positions in universities that contracts were not renewed. The grants were pulled away from them. And they got in so much trouble. Scientists, when they mentioned only intelligent design, there's a documentary if anyone has anyone has seen that documentary.

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

It's about prosecuting and challenging those who.

00:16:12--> 00:16:16

Subhanallah forgotten the name of it. Anyway. So

00:16:18--> 00:16:26

it's all this. This design shows there's intelligence behind it. Obviously, there's a creator behind it. It's so obvious. If you're

00:16:27--> 00:16:40

running away from this, you're doing this deliberately. Then the Prophets and Messengers straight away they move into the heart of the subject. And that's it. Oh, come Leo ferula comiendo know where you are here are Camila agilan Musa.

00:16:42--> 00:16:48

So he is calling upon you, your creators calling upon you, to forgive you your sins. And when we say forgiveness,

00:16:49--> 00:17:22

this word is very big. It's not only forgive you your sins, but basically it includes what also leads to forgiveness of sins. So Allah is sending you a guidance, to help you get out of the darkness, which caused you a lot of sense, and he will forgive your sins, and He wants to bring you into the slides. And in this light, you will be able to escape from sins and you will live a good quality of life in this earth. And in the Hereafter, it will come the axiata comiendo become more you Akira comida agilely mucem.

00:17:23--> 00:17:58

And he's going to let you live in this world for an appointed time, which is when you will leave this world and basically for you is going to be the good end if you believe if you do not believe there will be the punishment. Follow in Antrim in LA Sharon mezzaluna to the donor and also donor America and I want to add owner, tuna be sold on a movie. So the response from the people was you're merely human beings like us. You're just human beings like us. You're not angels, you're not special, you don't have any special qualities.

00:17:59--> 00:18:25

So you're just human beings pretending to be prophets. You want to push us away to Sedona and mechanical Do you want to push us away from worshiping what our forefathers used to worship. So basically our culture, our value, our heritage, you want to take us away from that tuna, abyssal Bonomo been show us a very profound compelling authority.

00:18:27--> 00:18:37

Meaning this authority could be miracles or could be a very clear sign that we cannot deny that we cannot deny

00:18:49--> 00:18:57

as I'm as I'm talking about this, I had some some ideas and I wanted to talk about them why they require some attention.

00:19:02--> 00:19:04

We humans like to think we are logical.

00:19:06--> 00:19:31

We like to think that we are logical that what I know how I think is logical make sense? There's nothing wrong about it. And this is a very important aspect of who we are humans. This is again, this is what we what we said that Allah's mantra says he beautifies for people what they do, what they think their way of life, Allah beautifies it for them. And if you are upon the wrong way,

00:19:33--> 00:19:35

it shape on this beautifying your ways for you.

00:19:36--> 00:19:41

Now, humans don't realize what they call the collective mind.

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

group mind

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

when you are part of a group. Somehow you lose your thinking and you join a bigger mind. That's the mind. It sounds spooky and scary. But this is something very well documented in sociology, sociology,

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

They study the group behavior, or the human behavior within a group. That's a big part of sociology. So in sociology, they they figured out that when people get together, they behave in ways they would not

00:20:14--> 00:20:15

when they are alone,

00:20:17--> 00:20:34

when you are part of a group, when you join a group, you're going to do things you will not do if you're by yourself. You didn't deem them to be crazy. This is why when people protest on when people make rallies, it's a very dangerous moment. People could do crazy things.

00:20:35--> 00:20:39

People could, and this is what this explains what happened in,

00:20:40--> 00:20:44

in World War Two. So obviously, a lot of crimes were committed.

00:20:45--> 00:20:51

A lot of crimes were committed. So in Germany, there was a lot of persecution of different people of different backgrounds.

00:20:52--> 00:20:57

Normal people took part in crimes against humanity.

00:20:59--> 00:21:16

Normal people, how did they do this? The moment they joined a group, and they were in the situation, simple, normal people were able to slay others cut their throats, cut their bodies into pieces, and not even question that.

00:21:17--> 00:21:26

That's how humans behave. So put one person, one good person in a crowd. And if this crowd acts crazy, this person is just going to join

00:21:27--> 00:21:29

is just going to go join. This is how humans behave.

00:21:30--> 00:21:45

That's immediately when you're on a group. But when you live in a society, you don't realize how much society shapes your thinking. You don't realize even the very alphabet of your thought process is shaped by your society. So you're not going to see what's wrong with it.

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

And you think you're illogical

00:21:49--> 00:22:13

and this is why when people travel, they tend to see more of the loopholes in the culture, you're gonna see more buy because you're you're exposed to a completely different set of beliefs or ideas or culture and so on and so forth. So we humans don't realize that we as human beings by virtue of us being social creatures, is that we are the subjects of

00:22:16--> 00:22:33

hypnotized ation, some form of form of hyperventilation, we don't realize and it's some kind of a brainwashing. Our our brains are being washed by the cultural wrongness. That's how we humans think. And Allah's model refers to something like this by the way in the Quran, for example, Allah Subhana Allah says

00:22:35--> 00:22:54

in surah tilaa out of garden millet we're living in a stick about a woman called me He led us to a for women and let me know at Ala Moana and masala had more sentimental value in Bheema or syllabi him me don't call it laziness tekmoto inability I meant to be careful. The people from common side from the people have side

00:22:57--> 00:23:31

they said to the weaker ones do you know that sila has a genuine profit from his Lord? So the weaker ones thought the stronger ones or the the elite were actually recognizing the authenticity of the message of son honey center? So the weaker ones they said we believe in it. We believed in him so the stronger ones they said no, we don't believe in Him. We know how but we don't believe in Him. And that lead a lot of the weaker wants to join forces. And this is why on the day of judgment in the Hellfire Allah talks about Allah Latina student fo Latina stick borrow in Hakuna calm tubba

00:23:32--> 00:23:50

for Helena, Montana and Nevada bIllahi min che the weaker ones they said to their leaders, they said to the main ones, they said to the cultural shapers, they said to them, we were just following you are you going to help us now? They say no, you're going to take your part of the you're going to take your share of the of the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:23:51--> 00:24:34

And if you are attached to someone, someone, if you if there is some person has a strong influence in your life, if that person leaves, by traveling or by passing away or anything, you're going to see that your life will start changing and a lot of your beliefs and your convictions will start changing and you as a person will start changing. We don't realize that we are social creatures and we get influenced greatly by people around us and by the culture around us. So, what people call justice today what people call equality or key people call respect what people call rights, isn't these are not absolute terms. These are shaped greatly by culture greatly by culture, we have to be

00:24:34--> 00:24:50

aware of this. And if you are unable to see the influence of the culture of the society on you, you will never be free. You will never be free because you will be under the influence of others without realizing what a loss or what the society is actually

00:24:52--> 00:24:56

or how society is shaping you and your thought process. Okay, so these people

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

when they said to their Prophets and Messengers

00:25:00--> 00:25:20

We want clear authority very powerful authority that we cannot reject. Violet long rasuluh home in a showroom with local well I can Allah Hi mo nada Yasha Amin EBRD, Walmart Canada and neTea can be sold on in the evening Allah where Allah Allah He for later what can mean on?

00:25:23--> 00:25:58

So the prophets and messengers they said to them to their people were merely human beings like your yes we are messengers from Allah, but we merely human beings we cannot initiate science, we cannot come up with miracles unless Allah Subhana Allah gives us something we're going to show it to you well we cannot bring something from ourselves we cannot fabricate or create something. What I can Allah hi oh no hola Yasha Omen embed Allah Subhana Allah chooses whomever he wills with his blessings and favors. Allah has chosen us to be prophets and messengers. It's not our fault that you guys don't like it. It's not our fault fault that you guys disbelieve in it.

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

And demand start demanding, you know, proofs from us. Well, my cannula and neTea commission plan Elaborate. It's not our right to come up with any miracles, any signs anything you asked for? Except if Allah subhanaw taala gives us something we're going to convey to you. What are the life Elliot? What can you mean upon Allah and the believers depend? We're going to depend on Allah. You reject to our message, you don't respond to the message, you will question us you call us charlatans, liars.

00:26:31--> 00:26:33

fabricators, whatever you call us.

00:26:34--> 00:27:12

We're just gonna be patient with this, we're gonna put our trust in Allah subhanaw taala. And all what we will do is convey the message like no Helenius CERAM followup with him health facility in la cena, Rama, Noah still among his people, for 950 years, conveying the message to his people and they reject, they reject and he would come to them in different states in the morning in the evening, in private one to one and in public. And he would approach the people in different ways still imagine such a long time it's still disbelief. And he never gave up he kept calling upon them, calling upon them until they reached the point where he realized these people aren't going to believe anymore.

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

That's it.

00:27:16--> 00:27:25

Then they said we're Mallanna Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, he walked up to her, Donna Shula and one and us belong to Munna, Weigela hyphenator. What killing whatever Cubone

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

they say why?

00:27:28--> 00:27:55

Why shouldn't we put our trust in Allah? Why shouldn't we rely on Allah subhanaw taala when he had when he has already guided us, He has guided us to the truth. So since he has taken care of our guidance, we know he's going to take care of our conditions. So if Allah has taken care of our hearts, he's going to take care of our conditions as well. Because it's it's

00:27:57--> 00:28:40

it's a bigger expectation to be guided than being taken care of physically. So Allah subhanaw taala is going to take care of this, the biggest thing for us is that we he's guided us and others. That's the that's the biggest worry for us since he has taken care of this. So obviously, he's going to take care of our conditions. And it obviously shows here, it's not mentioned directly, but you can tell it's implied that these people were other people were aggressive to their prophets and messengers, they were aggressive, not only verbally, but even physically. And this is why they said well enough spelen Alhama Are they too and we shall be patient, in the face of you of the harm that

00:28:40--> 00:29:10

you caused us. Whatever harm you bring upon us. We will be patient we will have you know we will handle that and we will resort to forbearance when it comes to the harm that you will throw on us well Allah even later what can in whatever Quran and let those who are seeking for help seeking help seeking Reliance seeking protection. Let them turn to Allah subhanaw taala in that Allah is the one that you should turn to for seeking help and seeking reliance.

00:29:11--> 00:29:21

And this shows that the people of falsehood will never will never let people who call to the truth, they will never leave them alone.

00:29:22--> 00:29:26

They will never give them a last time we mentioned it couldn't be an obvious enmity.

00:29:27--> 00:29:51

But it could be passive aggressive and meaty. It's hidden, it's masked, they pretend that okay, we we give equal opportunity, justice, etc. But a lot of laws will be tacitly or will be in a treacherous way They will be designed to target a certain certain group of people and that's the people upon the truth

00:29:52--> 00:29:55

or excuses will be found or

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

operations terrorist

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

have actions and crimes committed by Muslims, but who pulls the strings?

00:30:07--> 00:30:29

Why? Because when we have gathered enough so called evidence that there's a lot of terrorism coming from these Muslims, so we can label them as terrorists, we can label Islamist terrorists, so on and so forth, then we can take any measures against them, when we have enough, you know, support from the public and so on and so forth. So this is happening in many in many places in the world.

00:30:31--> 00:30:43

We are living in a Clifford Gulia, rosary him now it's mentioned, obviously, we are living in a Kaffir olyroos, with the Himalayan region are coming out of China will later who don't have immunity. And so the people of disbelief, they said to their messengers,

00:30:44--> 00:30:55

you either come back to our beliefs and our religion, or we will expel you out of our lands out of out of this country, out of this territory.

00:30:57--> 00:31:00

You choose that these are the choices that you have, again, where is tolerance.

00:31:03--> 00:31:17

A lot of these principles, justice, tolerance, respect, equality, forgiveness, kindness, and unity, and so on and so forth. These are cherished, when they serve a society,

00:31:18--> 00:31:30

when they serve the welfare of a certain segment of society, that's the elite. When it serves those, when it works against them, they will find ways to go around it.

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

They will, they will find ways to grow and it gets to the point where they will actually challenge these opening.

00:31:41--> 00:31:59

So these people, they said to their prophets and their messengers, you either go come back to our religion is not even your free freedom of thought. Now, there's no freedom of thought. There's no and hits this has happened over and over and over and over and over and over and over in history, and history is

00:32:00--> 00:32:15

bound to repeat itself. History is bound to repeat itself. And we mentioned last time as well the verse where the people of Lord they said, they do add an altar, men Arrietty come in now homeowners, even ethically when you differ with some people,

00:32:16--> 00:32:36

it's going to have come to a point where these people will say it's either you or us, it's either your values or our values. So the people of Lord they said kick loose and his people like whoever believed in him and his family, kick them out of our towns because these people purify themselves. So we only want people like us here

00:32:37--> 00:32:45

and you will see how things and actually Unfortunately things are moving towards this in this direction may Allah Spanish Allah protect us.

00:32:47--> 00:32:52

For all her at him Rob boom learn only cannot bother me so Allah sent to the prophets

00:32:53--> 00:33:07

that we shall destroy these wrongdoers these people we shall destroy them. What no skin Nicole album embody him Daddy can even half an army or half away, and we shall place you on earth after we destroy them.

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

This is this will this is a promise for those who fear the standing of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And they fear the meeting of Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment. So these are for the people who fear Allah and love him, or people who are dutiful to Allah subhanaw taala. And by the way, some promises in the Quran are given for individuals and some promises are given to the collective Muslim community.

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

So

00:33:36--> 00:33:38

some individuals might not see this.

00:33:40--> 00:33:49

Allah is speaking about the Muslims and about the believers that he will give them dominance. afterwards. You might die before you see this.

00:33:50--> 00:33:52

But for the collective body of Muslims, that's going to happen.

00:33:55--> 00:34:08

The collective body of Muslims, that's going to happen. So there are promises that are given for the collective body of Muslims. So don't see them for yourself as individual, you could be included. Or you could be taken before that process takes its full course.

00:34:13--> 00:34:29

We're stiff to haul the harbor Cullotta burden and he stressed the whole that means they started they began the process that they began the process of persecution stiff they began the process of persecution, they initiated it and those are the disbelievers.

00:34:35--> 00:34:38

By the way, there's something here about these prophets and messengers.

00:34:40--> 00:34:42

When they faced enmity from their people,

00:34:44--> 00:34:45

they did not preach

00:34:47--> 00:34:55

or they did not they did not only they did not limit themselves to preaching Islam. But they demonstrated Islam in their attitude which is that we're calling

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

you are against us, you will persecute us you will start cheating

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

singers will start doing harm to us, which will put our trust in Allah.

00:35:06--> 00:35:23

So when we call you to you're going to see it in us. You're going to see that high level of faith, the high level of Eman, you will see it. And that's a profound aspect of Dawa is that people see what you are calling to, rather than that is hear about it.

00:35:24--> 00:36:04

And this gives a lot of potential for the Dawa, or for the, whatever kind of advice you give, when people see that in you. So these prophets and messengers, when they have given preaching and their people turned against them, they said, Okay, we're going to do what we are commanded to do. But what you will see is actually the higher side and the higher level of what we are preaching. And that's reliance on trust in Allah, we will never waver, we will put our trust in the last month, Allah will never go back on our heels. So you get to see the profound nature of what we are calling you to. If you have refused the words, you can see the truth of it manifested in a human form in a beautiful

00:36:04--> 00:36:06

human form. So

00:36:13--> 00:36:22

we're stuffed to help. So the people of disbelief, they said, We're going to they started the battle, they start or they started the persecution. And they said, if your Lord is there,

00:36:23--> 00:36:42

let him fight against us, let him punish us. And this has always been again the response of many of the disbelievers. For example, the people of Polish they said oh Allah if you are there, destroy us. Send stones upon us, as well the people of Polish sin

00:36:45--> 00:36:47

and salted and fall last minute I says

00:36:52--> 00:37:38

well, motor home Hello. You're at the MoMA Warhol Museum tonight in Missoula halloumi. With Carlo Lahoma in Canada, we're coming in with Indyk for N Thumper. Elena has Jana Tamina, summer away Tina BIA they have been added. And they said, Oh Allah, if this is the truth from you. What you send to Muhammad is the truth from you. So let's, you know, stones be thrown at us from heavens, throw stones on us. As a neighbor saying, The Truth destroy us. That's what you mean, or waiting or bring upon us severe punishment. If Mohammed is telling the truth. That's extreme and excessive provoking to the Prophet SAW Selim. They seen this in in mockery to the Prophet SAW Salem. But when people do

00:37:38--> 00:37:39

this, Allah punishes them.

00:37:41--> 00:37:59

So these people stuff, the whole they started, they started the persecution or the fight against these, the prophets and messengers, and they said, if your Lord is there, let him help you We'll let him fight against us was tough, the whole Wahab ecologia burden and it and all of those proud,

00:38:01--> 00:38:41

arrogant disbelievers who are stubborn as well and hard headed on their belief on their disbelief. They were disappointed because there were destroyed because they were destroyed by Allah subhanaw taala. Meanwhile, he Jahannam always calm in mind so that now this is the punishment they got in this world destruction from Allah, Allah, Allah fulfilled the promise that he gave to his prophets, and what happened? Now they have the severe punishment, and that's nothing compared for compared to what is awaiting them on the Day of Judgment. Well, meanwhile, meanwhile, he Jahannam now he's gone, they went through the severe punishment, and now they're going through the punishment of the grave.

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

But what is awaiting them is even worse than that far worse than that, and that's to handle them as the hellfire and we're not here to handle them we'll use common man in studied and he would drink from boiling, stinky boiling water.

00:39:01--> 00:39:15

Stinky boiling water, what is it? It's the all the excrement and the pus and the dirt of the people of the fire and the sweat will be put together boiling and that's what they would drink.

00:39:16--> 00:39:21

That's what these people in the Hellfire would drink. That's the drink that they are offered.

00:39:24--> 00:40:00

Will you scam in mountain study the Yeti jell O who? What I can do you see oh so out of thirst in the healthcare was talking about what happens? What's going to happen? That's a scene from the Hellfire Yatta jar. Wha hoo. The genre is when someone is so thirsty. And imagine someone is too thirsty, especially those who get lost in the middle of the ocean. They get too thirsty that they finally decide to drink from the water of the sea and when they do this that's the end. The too thirsty but they can't resist the temptation although they know is going to kill them too.

00:40:00--> 00:40:11

By drinking, the seawater is going to kill them, but they cannot resist because thirst overtakes their mind their logical mind. So they drink the water from the sea. And when they drink it, it's so salty.

00:40:13--> 00:40:54

And painful as they drink it, but still, so they have the struggle, their thirst overtakes the minds and overtakes the senses, and it wants the water badly. Yet the throat and the taste and the man is telling them that's going to kill you and so painful, so disgusting. And so it's so harmful, but they're still drinking it. So they have this kind of conflict. And it's putting them in a very difficult tight spot. So that's what yet a Java drinking, but they want to spit in their drink, they want to drink it, but they want to spit it. So out of extreme thirst. These people, that's what they offered, but they still take it in. But they can't even take it. You have to juggle one eye Academy

00:40:54--> 00:41:26

and they can't even get to a point where they can enjoy it or taste it. Because it's not something that you can enjoy your taste. So imagine Do you imagine the dilemma of these people? That's the dynamic of and that's the constant state. That's the constant state there is a genre what I used to wear T he'll know to mean call him again, and death comes to them. When it comes to that person from everywhere in the hellfire. Everything causes death, not ideally. But because Allah subhanaw taala

00:41:28--> 00:41:39

brought death in the form of Iran on the Day of Judgment, you know, everyone is observing Allah subhanaw taala as authentic hadith, Allah subhanaw taala will bring around

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

and that RAM cache

00:41:44--> 00:41:52

is in the form of is, is actually death, personified in that room. So Allah will bring it and it will be slaughtered.

00:41:55--> 00:42:00

So then it will be said to the people in paradise, yeah, halogen

00:42:01--> 00:42:02

Hayato. I'm not holding

00:42:04--> 00:42:07

your hand now. Hold on, while I'm out, there is no death.

00:42:09--> 00:42:14

You died in in that dunya. Here in this dunya. Because of this.

00:42:16--> 00:42:22

Now this death is erased from the dictionary of life forever. There's no there

00:42:23--> 00:42:26

is only life. Imagine these people stuck in this situation.

00:42:27--> 00:42:37

Where t Hill Motoman Cooley McDaniel, death comes to that person from everything around him. Everything around him causes in death

00:42:38--> 00:42:56

and the pain of death. But he's going to experience the pain of death, but he's not going to die. There's no escape. There's no escape, can you imagine that situation. The mind, by the way, cannot imagine this, if you tried to imagine this. It's unbearable pain. You cannot even imagine it you cannot conceive of it

00:42:58--> 00:43:12

yet, and the the the tiniest part of it causes you death, yet you're not going to die. Or you're not going to escape that pain. And it's constant. And so don't stop. You can't even imagine this in your in your mind in your head.

00:43:15--> 00:43:32

Where it hit Motoman Cooley mccannon woman where we meet death comes to him from all around him. But he doesn't that he's not going to die. Because death has been killed itself. So there is no death from now from that point on, there will be no death or murder will be made yet when we were all here.

00:43:33--> 00:44:00

And still what's awaiting him is a thick punishment. And even the word other one holy, even Arabic. It's not a common expression, a thick punishment. So it's layers and layers. It's something you cannot imagine because any kind of punishment or any kind of pain you look at you always have hope is going to get to a point where it will end but with thick punishment there's no end

00:44:02--> 00:44:03

it's an everlasting

00:44:04--> 00:44:09

It's a never ceasing process is gonna stay there forever.

00:44:10--> 00:44:13

You can't even imagine forever but imagine pain forever.

00:44:14--> 00:44:37

At least when death is is so beautiful that it comes such a beautiful notion. This is why the people in the alpha where they will say they call on Malik you know the guardian of the Hellfire the angel Malik who guards the Hellfire he oversees the Hellfire Wakayama, Nikolay Jacobi Allah in our book, they said, Oh Malik, please Did Allah just cause us to die? We just want to die.

00:44:39--> 00:44:42

Carla in a coma. He said you're gonna stay.

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

Gonna stay. It's not going to end.

00:44:46--> 00:44:48

Like there's no hope there's going to come to a stop.

00:44:49--> 00:44:55

There's no hope this will ever end. In even trying to think about it. You can't.

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

It's not going to end. There's no end to this thought.

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

wasn't yours

00:45:01--> 00:45:06

100,000 years, million years. Building is truly in years.

00:45:08--> 00:45:10

Much more still, there's no end no end.

00:45:13--> 00:45:15

What's the biggest number humans have ever reached?

00:45:19--> 00:45:23

I know what trillion what's more than trillion? What's the next?

00:45:27--> 00:45:28

One?

00:45:29--> 00:45:46

zillion. Okay, this is only a number or is it just okay, zillion. What about more than zillion? It zillions of zillions and zillions of zillions of years of building is non and non stop. There's no end. Imagine someone who's stuck there. You know, what makes you put up with a calamity or hardship or pain,

00:45:48--> 00:45:53

your certainty that's going to end that's the only thing that keeps you going by the way through it.

00:45:55--> 00:45:58

But imagine even that is taken away. Even that notion is taken away.

00:46:02--> 00:46:13

When we were out here that will haunt you. Methadone, Lydian or kefir Oberon became an heirloom column an initiative that we had three Hovi Yeoman houses they have their own me Marcus avoid actually the leaker who won

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

albite

00:46:19--> 00:46:22

see if there are other other notions to share before we move on.

00:46:51--> 00:46:52

Pretty much the same of what we said

00:46:59--> 00:47:04

something just a comment as well. The issue of expelling the people of goodness

00:47:07--> 00:47:29

has always been the norm from people who reject the truth. So you find the people shy, they said Linux regenda Yash Ribolla Lena and Mark and I got to getting a hold of me letting people shave they said to show you and the people with who believed with you, you we either gonna kick you out of our town, or you're gonna

00:47:31--> 00:47:35

come back to our religion come back to our faith and our culture. And

00:47:37--> 00:47:50

again, the same thing is Lord, given the prophets of Salaam, Allah Subhan Allah says we're Incorrigible, estephe zunar Kameena RW regio come in? Even the people of Christ they tried to expel the Prophet source and then many times out of Makkah.

00:48:02--> 00:48:17

Okay, so Mr. Lilina, capital will be him the example or the metaphor or the similar today of the people who do who disbelieve in their Lord in their Creator, Allah says, Don't, Allah didn't say they disbelieve in Allah, they disbelieve in the Creator.

00:48:19--> 00:48:26

Just to show the fallacy and the stupidity of what they do. You are denying the source of your existence, you're challenging the source of your existence.

00:48:28--> 00:48:32

A man whom column ad initiated that to be hit up a Woman House, if

00:48:33--> 00:48:39

their actions their deeds are just like ashes. You know, when you

00:48:40--> 00:48:41

light a fire,

00:48:42--> 00:49:10

and it goes wild, then it sort of subdues and goes down and then goes out. What remains is ashes. Do they have any weights, and even the weight, nothing is so light, they don't have a weight, they don't have a mass of their own. And if you blow on them, they'll fly. That will be blown easily blown. So Allah is saying the actions of the people of disbelief are just like these kinds of ashes.

00:49:11--> 00:49:23

When the wind blows on a stormy day, that's what remains for them on the Day of Judgment. What does this mean? Like they don't I mean, maca, Cibola che, basically, they will not get

00:49:24--> 00:49:39

whatever they have done, they're not going to get fruits, they're not going to get benefits. There's no payoff from the actions. What is the meaning of this? First it means everything that people of disbelief they do to destroy Islam and hide the truth. They will not pay off.

00:49:40--> 00:49:43

That will not pay off because the

00:49:45--> 00:49:48

Islam or the truth will still spread.

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

The people who were destined to believe they will believe regardless so you're not going to change the order of Allah. So you do whatever you do as of last month, and it says in Alladhina, falloon, Fiona and wialon

00:50:00--> 00:50:11

The US should do and Sevilla Fussa UniFi owner from Mata colada him has gotten through my Allah Boon Latina Cafaro Illa Johanna Mashallah. Last one Allah says the people of disbelief.

00:50:13--> 00:50:31

They spend their money spent their wealth and money so much they should do Ansible Allah to turn people away from the path of Allah. Firstly on people when they will spend that money from metacoda Haleem Hassan and it will be pain against them. The outcome of this is going to be against the wishes

00:50:32--> 00:51:13

for sinful Kurata maatregelen name has thought from May Allah born then there will be there will be defeated, they will lose they will be the losers. While the NACA fellow Elijah Nomex, Sharon and the disbelievers will be put and pushed into the hellfire. So this resonates with this meaning of this verse, whatever they do, whatever they do, it will not pay off. It's just like ashes, it's not going to have a real impact. The ones who are designed destined to be to believe they will believe and the ones who are destined to go straight will go astray. Regardless. Another meaning is about the good things, that the people of disbelief to people who reject Faith, people who reject Allah subhanaw

00:51:13--> 00:51:37

taala, act ungratefully To Allah Subhan, Allah subhanho wa Taala these people have good things, right? They have helped some poor people, they've been good to their parents, they were peace loving, some of them, right, they have good things, they do charity, they help out, they smile, they raised their children, right. And so they work to feed their families, these are good things, right? These are good things.

00:51:40--> 00:51:47

The actions of these, these good actions of these people, on the Day of Judgment, will not benefit them. Why?

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

Because they will get the benefit in this life.

00:51:52--> 00:52:10

They will get the benefit of this life. And there is a number of Hadith from the prophets on that show. That Allah Subhan Allah to Allah, for the people of disbelief, whatever good they do, that Allah will give the reward for them in this life, in the shape of wealth is

00:52:12--> 00:52:13

pleasures of this world.

00:52:14--> 00:52:19

pleasures of this world. And the shows that whoever does good in this world, good is going to come to them.

00:52:21--> 00:52:33

Good will come to them. This is what we call previously or what's called by it's called La, Misa a balance in this universe, you do goodness, good results are going to come to you, you're nice to people, you help out people, good stuff is gonna come to you.

00:52:36--> 00:53:24

And so they get, they don't leave this world until they are paid off completely for every good thing in this world. So Allah is going to pay them off, Allah is going to give them could be wealth, could be status, could be family, could be fame, it could be success. It could be some kind of peaceful life, or life of luxury or any any form of beauty. Anything that people love, and people enjoy and people, you know, sort of seek after. So let's gonna, but when people do good things, and they have belief, they will be paid, they will, they will get paid, they pay off in this life. But Allah will also give them a reward on the hereafter that's extra from Allah has a gift from Allah. But the

00:53:24--> 00:53:26

condition is if it's done with belief,

00:53:27--> 00:53:29

if it's done with belief.

00:53:32--> 00:53:35

So that's another meaning of this verse.

00:53:36--> 00:53:40

The Luca who Ebola will by Allah says, This is sheer misguidance

00:53:41--> 00:53:53

This is the last life. This is a life that's gone in vain. This is a life that has gone in vain, that you've done so many great things, you've been a good person, you've done so many good things, but you have been ungrateful to Allah.

00:53:54--> 00:53:58

You have been ungrateful to the one who brought you into existence

00:53:59--> 00:54:14

to the one who brought you into existence. And I said, some I'm, I've been seeing lately a lot of even Muslims question and they say, What about good people? Why did they go to the hellfire? You know, you have to realize no one goes to the Hellfire unless they deserve it.

00:54:15--> 00:54:18

Unless they are criminals in the literal sense of the word.

00:54:20--> 00:54:48

So you might say but there are people never heard about Islam, these people will be given a test on the Day of Judgment. These people are called Al Fatra. People who never came face to face with the real message of Islam with you not what's in the media, not what's shown by some Muslims, the real message of Islam, people have not come face to face with it. They have not seen it clear as it is. These people will have a taste a test on the Day of Judgment. They are called Al Fatra the people of the gap.

00:54:49--> 00:54:59

So Allah is not going to do injustice to people. But if someone associate partner associates partners to Allah or denies Allah's existence when they have seen

00:55:00--> 00:55:08

The truth and they have come face to face with it, they rejected, they have to be so bad to do this, I'm telling you, they have to be so bad to do this.

00:55:09--> 00:55:51

And if we don't realize how grave the sin of rejecting Allah subhanaw taala is, then we have an issue and understanding what faith really means. It's the default states of human state of human beings to believe in Allah, to be grateful to realize where you came from, to search, where you came from. Imagine we you know, we hear stories about people who grew up in foster homes. And the the, the wish that they have in their life is to find trace back their parents. It's it's natural human beings to know where we came from, to be loyal to where we came from, to search for where we came from, and connect to where we came from. And that's even up to the level of parents going above the

00:55:51--> 00:56:03

level of your Creator, your designer. We're all humans, our hearts crave this human nature craves that. And if you're not searching for it, there's something wrong you're doing something wrong seriously wrong about yourself.

00:56:04--> 00:56:07

It's the nature of human beings to search for Allah.

00:56:08--> 00:56:20

So if someone goes against or someone finds Allah, and they, when they find Allah, they go against it. I'm telling you, you have to be so bad to do this. You have to be so bad to do this.

00:56:25--> 00:56:38

Then Allah Subhana Allah says element Allah and Allah halacha cinoa It will Allah will help Iesha you they become wealthy behalten Jared was saying, and this is profound meaning here, don't you see that Allah has created the heavens and the earth in truth.

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

Allah has created everything in truth.

00:56:43--> 00:56:47

So there's nothing here that's that came about for no reason.

00:56:48--> 00:56:54

And there are strong indications in the Quran sunnah that Allah created, designed the heavens and the earth to test us, humans

00:56:56--> 00:57:10

to test us as humans. So the reason Allah Subhana Allah created this universe, ultimately is to test human beings make them go through this test. So in a sense, this a great honor. Well, I've got Kolomna bunny Adam,

00:57:12--> 00:57:20

what are called corona buddy Adam, we have honored the son of Adam, what am Allah home feeling but we will bury Amina Yeva, to have Ebola.

00:57:21--> 00:58:01

Lila, we have carried them on the sea and on the land and, and we have designed things for them. And we have favored them over so many of our creation. So human beings, the creation of human beings is not simple. It's such a great moment in the history of existence that Allah designed us. And Allah honored us and gave us this place. And Allah gave us something he didn't give anybody any other creation, except humans and jinn. Allah has honored us Allah has given us choice. Allah created everything in this universe, it just runs by the command of Allah, Allah says do it does. It just follows instructions, it has no choice of its own, it makes no decisions. It has no second thoughts,

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

even the angels.

00:58:04--> 00:58:07

But Allah created us different.

00:58:08--> 00:58:12

He said, I'm gonna create you and I will give you a choice, you can make a choice of your

00:58:14--> 00:58:32

creatures can do this, you can do it make a choice of your own, live your life on your terms. But this, this kind of freedom is kind of choice comes with responsibility, the outcomes, the consequences of your choices, you're going to live with them forever. As simple as that.

00:58:33--> 00:58:37

And I'm going to put this whole universe under your surface.

00:58:38--> 00:58:55

This whole universe is designed in a way that makes life for you possible. We don't understand how things come together to make life for us possible. And because, you know, we humans don't realize what is there we figure out things when we miss them, when we lose them.

00:58:56--> 00:59:02

When you fall sick. Now you realize how health Wow, how health is important.

00:59:04--> 00:59:13

How health is important, you don't realize, and this is something that used to spread on social media. I don't like this stuff. But I mean, it serves a good as a good example here.

00:59:15--> 00:59:17

Somebody might say would you like to get like

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

$5 million?

00:59:21--> 00:59:31

And that would be the first question and you scroll down. We so love to like to get what would you exchange for that? Or anything? Okay, would you give up your eyes for $5 million?

00:59:35--> 00:59:41

And all you start thinking, when do I want to give up my eyes and not be able to see anything for the rest of my life for a second $5 million?

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

Is it worth it?

00:59:44--> 00:59:49

Most people would say not right. And then the scroll down it says you think you're poor, right?

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

You think you're poor, you have something that's worth much more than $5 million, and you're not willing to give it up. So you're already rich, right? So anyway, it's somehow makes you

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

Think about what I'm saying. We only realize how much everything has been put together when we miss it when it goes wrong.

01:00:08--> 01:00:30

So Allah has designed everything in this universe for a reason. And this reason is true. And it's important, and it's valuable. And it's not a joke, Allah is not messing around, by creating humans in that fashion. Iyashi with him comware to be cultivated, Allah could just wipe you out and create a new creation, we make a big fuss about yourself.

01:00:32--> 01:00:40

There's so much pride there so much arrogance in this attitude by human beings who's Allah prove, prove yourself to me and so on. And I mentioned this.

01:00:41--> 01:00:44

Richard Dawkins was the biggest, most

01:00:45--> 01:00:48

most aggressive among all these

01:00:49--> 01:00:50

new atheists.

01:00:52--> 01:01:06

He was once in an interview, and the interviewer said, and I mean, you say there's no God, there's no religion. And, and the end is death. But someone who believes he says, There's life after death, you don't believe in life after death?

01:01:07--> 01:01:47

I mean, but what if you die? I mean, for him for that person who believes in life after death, they have nothing to lose, they're gonna live this life. And if there is life after death, they have prepared for it. But for you, you have burnt your bridges with the afterlife is only this. So what if you after you die? You wake up and it's yourself in the next world? What are you going to do? And that was instead of addressing the question, he made an escape and what he said and this shows you the, the arrogance that she, you know, blows into, into human beings. And he says, If I wake up in the next life, and I see God, I'm gonna say, Why did you go to great lengths to hide yourself?

01:01:50--> 01:01:51

See the arrogance?

01:01:52--> 01:01:53

Who are you?

01:01:54--> 01:01:55

Who are you?

01:01:56--> 01:02:12

You do you demand, a demand God to do or Allah to do things or to behave as your expectations? That's your naivety that is asking this you don't realize Allah has already. As I said, Allah has proven more than you are but you just need to open your eyes

01:02:14--> 01:02:50

eh, are you with him como atypical conjugate he can wipe you out and create a new creation. So what's the big deal? So don't have this kind of pomposity and pride about yourself. Just know your worth, know your worth. Well, my daddy can Allah Hebrew Aziz. And this is there's no burden on Allah. This is not even it's not even difficult. Because all Allah subhanaw taala if he wants to create something, he just says be, just be his word, is his word because it's his divine it creates, just by his word be That's it, it comes into existence.

01:02:56--> 01:02:58

Then Allah takes us to a scene in the

01:03:00--> 01:03:06

in the Hereafter, as a discussion between the people who will end up in the hellfire and they will

01:03:07--> 01:03:49

show us some some things about what we said, social influence, how people are actually hypnotized. We are under some form of hypnotizing, hypnosis, we're actually we're just walking around, we don't realize that we are being programmed. We are being programmed. And when you wake up to this fact, you will have much more say about your choices in life, about your choices in life and I said when we live in a context, we blend in it we absorb it we don't see that there is even context it's a funny there's a it's a beautiful Chinese proverb. I think it was like a story that has a morale.

01:03:51--> 01:03:55

There was two young fish swimming

01:03:57--> 01:03:58

with the tide

01:03:59--> 01:04:09

and a creek and there was a big fish going against the the current. So the big fish looks at the younger one says hi lads, how is the waters today?

01:04:11--> 01:04:15

So the younger one looks at his friend and he says

01:04:17--> 01:04:18

What's water?

01:04:20--> 01:04:23

What's water because they don't know anything else.

01:04:24--> 01:04:28

They don't know anything else in the sense for them the whole world is water.

01:04:30--> 01:04:59

Why? Because we live in an environment you take it as the norm. You don't realize this something different. Why? Because these the they have just hatched from their eggs have just come out these young fishes and they think this whole universe is just I mean the environment where we are that's where the whole universe is. Where you don't realize if you jump off, you're gonna find something called air. They don't realize this. So I'm telling you for fish. I'm sure fish find it strange how humans survive.

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

If

01:05:01--> 01:05:03

because for them life is only in water, right?

01:05:05--> 01:05:15

That's how profound the context is. Because we blend into our context we don't realize we become part of it and we use it to think and becomes our alphabet

01:05:16--> 01:05:22

as even how to talk about it, it's just hard to talk about because we're blended into this kind of thing.

01:05:24--> 01:05:32

Anyway, so inshallah next time we will move into that this new scene that was mentioned in the Surah and we'll try to take lessons from it let's see if you have any questions

01:05:34--> 01:05:36

questions so we'll go straight here

01:05:41--> 01:05:42

saw little caffeine

01:05:53--> 01:05:54

about what

01:06:09--> 01:06:10

I didn't have a lump

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

sum Some so

01:06:17--> 01:06:17

called

01:06:22--> 01:06:22

definitely go

01:06:24--> 01:06:25

for horror

01:06:27--> 01:06:28

the bottom of the screen

01:06:32--> 01:06:33

how you want to set

01:06:40--> 01:06:40

up

01:06:46--> 01:06:47

a normal lab for one

01:06:49--> 01:06:49

set

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

on a Monday

01:07:08--> 01:07:08

minion

01:07:21--> 01:07:23

lion okay this is about

01:07:24--> 01:07:26

little pearl nine I think the fourth is

01:07:30--> 01:07:34

about is the local nine when he made the dam

01:07:35--> 01:07:38

it's about two words in Arabic said and random

01:07:44--> 01:07:50

really I haven't come across the difference between sent and random and whether they were under the earth or not.

01:07:51--> 01:07:53

I'm not sure I'm really not sure

01:08:01--> 01:08:02

Russia

01:08:19--> 01:08:27

played the place of your Judo module, there is nothing authentic about where it is. Some of the facilities they said bow was when Yes, which is

01:08:28--> 01:08:38

in minor Asia, which is somewhere close to Chechnya north of Armenia around that area, but

01:08:39--> 01:08:50

there's nothing confirmed. There's nothing confirmed at all, who they are and what they are. And just even to show you, you know, some Muslim scholars thought the Chinese were doing my job.

01:08:51--> 01:08:58

Yeah. And some big scholars I'm not talking about some big scholars. Actually one of them was just

01:08:59--> 01:09:02

he thought he for him his opinion was the Chinese are actually a judo.

01:09:04--> 01:09:18

So but I mean, they have the majority of the scholars say no, that's not true. Usually, modules are still behind their damn. And the time hasn't come for them to come out. Because when they like the description about them, they come out

01:09:19--> 01:09:27

is is marked by different things is also shared from head to head with help of Mo. He lived about

01:09:28--> 01:09:32

150 years ago. He is well he had this opinion.

01:09:33--> 01:09:33

But

01:09:35--> 01:09:41

I don't know whether they where they are no one really knows exactly where they are. And

01:09:42--> 01:09:56

if they are, if the dam is if they are more in a tunnel rather than behind a wall or a dam. We don't know exactly. But getting into these deal details. The issue is that it's not going to help us

01:10:08--> 01:10:09

Buying a fight

01:10:18--> 01:10:19

with a mother is

01:10:26--> 01:10:30

still, whatever it's called, this name could have come later on.

01:10:31--> 01:10:32

It could have come later.

01:10:33--> 01:11:01

Still we don't know, again, but this still it doesn't benefit us to know where you're going. Because Allah subhanaw taala hid them from us. And we humans are only going to find out about them when they come out. So knowing where they are is not going to change anything. And even if we know where they are, and we know when they are going to come, no defense is going to help us. I think the only thing that's going to help us against the intrusion by George is to

01:11:02--> 01:11:11

just to be with the believers at that time. That's the only way just to be with the believers at that time. There's nothing else that can help us from them.

01:11:13--> 01:11:15

Because nothing is gonna stop in their face.

01:11:32--> 01:11:32

Brother

01:11:35--> 01:11:35

as

01:11:39--> 01:11:40

normal.

01:11:43--> 01:11:44

Several have been

01:11:48--> 01:11:49

recommended.

01:11:53--> 01:11:56

I personally, as far as I know, it's a dam it's not.

01:11:57--> 01:12:06

Yeah, it's a dam as a wall. That's what I know. So the fine could be Jubilee, Jubilee eligible to heart keep them behind. The

01:12:07--> 01:12:13

some people thought the Great Wall of China was that, but still that's not true. But what I'm saying is that

01:12:16--> 01:12:27

if anyone wants to find out there, they need to do good research. And my advice don't depend so much on contemporary things. Because humans do not see the

01:12:29--> 01:12:34

sometimes the How can I say the fault of their contemporary thoughts. Oftentimes,

01:12:35--> 01:12:55

contemporary thought has its glare and has its beauty. And it's hard to see past it. But when time goes by, things will be revealed for what they are. So this is why one of the important principles and Addison Adam Scott, a hadith advocate is not to say Hadith say that's what's happening today. No,

01:12:56--> 01:13:03

you might say this, maybe. But you cannot say this hadith talks about this. In our times, not it's like people say

01:13:05--> 01:13:07

you will find digital

01:13:09--> 01:13:13

shadow power on everybody. And you will find the shepherds who are usually

01:13:15--> 01:13:29

almost naked, barefoot, and so on so forth. You find them competing in high rises, high rise K rapers. So, I mean, the person said this, and this is happening in the Arabian Peninsula. But

01:13:30--> 01:13:51

it's not the necessarily that the President is talking about these people. Because we don't know how long this life is going to carry on. What if these over 235 100 years they get destroyed. And so there's humanity and humanity lives for another 1000 years. And then 1000 years later, humans start to build skyscrapers that reached the status stratosphere.

01:13:52--> 01:14:01

And then people that say, oh, that's what the Hadith talks about. Those in history. 1000 years ago, people used to think that was the case. Because by the way, Yemen, they used to build

01:14:03--> 01:14:18

you know, stories of seven, eight stories, buildings of seven, eight, and some of the muscle until that today, there were people like five or 600 years ago, who said actually what's happening in Yemen that's what the hell the process what I'm talking about.

01:14:20--> 01:14:24

So this is why taking it the reverse thing. Oh, that's what it is.

01:14:25--> 01:14:30

Believe me, these are matters of the unseen The only thing that protects us from them is what is what has come in the Quran and the Sunnah.

01:14:34--> 01:14:37

Okay, any other questions? Not yet.

01:14:41--> 01:14:41

Now

01:15:05--> 01:15:06

Shooting Stars

01:15:42--> 01:15:42

Okay,

01:15:44--> 01:15:47

okay, this is about, okay, these things spread a lot about.

01:15:49--> 01:16:04

Even the moon was split that NASA actually found this long ago, that they have found the crack splitting them into halves, and they've been hiding it because they don't want the whole of humanity to become Muslim, I have a very aggressive attitude towards this. And

01:16:06--> 01:16:44

you know, what has come out of this is a group of Arab Atheists that have built a website. And they have, they're creating 1000s and 1000s of Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, Instagram, and so on and so forth. And they are coming up with false claims about this thing. They're pretending to be Muslim. So say, science has proven this, and this is in the Quran, they sing some crazy stuff. And you will find 1000s of Muslims liking this page, and seeing and sharing all these, you know, posts. And, and then these people,

01:16:45--> 01:17:01

they say, We have fabricated this and look at naive Muslims, look how many, you have about 200,000 likes, and 50,000 shares and Muslims is how they made that of their religion, they don't even know where this came from. So what I would recommend

01:17:02--> 01:17:05

later, there is part of the unseen world.

01:17:06--> 01:17:07

NASA is not going to find it.

01:17:09--> 01:17:10

NASA is not going to find it.

01:17:11--> 01:17:15

And even if there, there is a night where there's no shooting stars,

01:17:17--> 01:17:21

okay, and NASA finds it, it's not going to be later to

01:17:22--> 01:17:43

believe he's not going to and there's no real like authentic report as far as I know that there's no shooting stars, and a little better. So there are so many fabricated Hadith about Hitler for God's it. Now it's how Leila tundla Hollowell about either some mild night, and mild compared to the night before it and after it. So it could come in the middle of the winter. And it's minus 30.

01:17:44--> 01:17:51

So it's not a mild night, well compare it to the night before and after, you're gonna find it's actually mild.

01:17:54--> 01:18:36

Plus, it's very hard to not even after seeing the sun and the rays of the sun to really say emphatically This is laid out of Qatar. If Allah wanted it to be known, he would have given clear signs that people would not doubt. But you're going to find two people look in the sun one says, oh, that's what that Mark says. Another one says, No, it doesn't. And you can find this, people are taking pictures. And this is not a good practice, by the way at all. Putting in pictures there, put it post posting them on social media, and the comparing the nights you're going to find and I found this interesting one year, four years ago, I decided to see this kind of frantic hysteria about

01:18:37--> 01:19:14

it, shooting the sun as it rises. And there was a guy like he was 100% There's so many followers. He's very popular on social media. That that's definitely wasn't 23/23 night. And he could tell because he started from 19th 20th 21st You can see the sun as it rises his he shoots it at this exactly the same point, same height. So you can find Yes, this short so much rays from the sun 23rd There's nothing it's like really such a clear disk.

01:19:15--> 01:19:18

I said, Wow, that's that's very powerful. It's overwhelming.

01:19:20--> 01:19:21

But what happened?

01:19:22--> 01:19:59

He put towards the end of Ramadan. All the 10 Nights, you're gonna find three nights very similar. And you look and you're confused. I don't know really what other is because there are three times where the sun is so clear. So clear. Just a disc with any any raise. It can look, you can really see it clear. So which one is that? You don't know. So there is a wisdom that Allah made it unclear. Let's not try to beat that wisdom. That's my advice. Don't try to beat that wisdom, even those who tried to see the sun. You see it you want to see if

01:20:00--> 01:20:11

For yourself find but never arrive at any emphatic conclusions. And don't announce it. Don't announce it. Because it's going to be just as you say, urbanist conjecture just some kind of guessing

01:20:13--> 01:20:36

Yeah, so it's partly because there will always be part of the unseen Allah may might show it to some people Allah might show it cleared some people and it's not going to be through the signs made is going to be some kind of realization as I shall only Allah as the process so Salam she said Allah eater in a directory little mahalo

01:20:38--> 01:20:44

if I direct if I witnessed the letter so it's not after she's seen the sun

01:20:45--> 01:20:52

How can she tell this is this other usually it's a knowing that Allah gives that person as a gift

01:20:53--> 01:20:58

but still cannot share with others say that's needed shouldn't be a secret between them I

01:21:01--> 01:21:01

hope this answers

01:21:06--> 01:21:06

yes

01:21:10--> 01:21:17

expelled yesterday Yes, I think it's by who the the guys Mark Stein or something like this.

01:21:18--> 01:21:22

Okay, expelled. Yes. expelled, documentary, expelled? I think it's more than

01:21:26--> 01:21:28

okay, what Okay, what about the presenter is

01:21:31--> 01:21:43

Yeah, Ben Stein. Okay. Ben Stein. Yes. So it's actually good to have a look at it. It's very interesting to show you that you know, these scientific circles are not so scientific. There's there's a mafia

01:21:44--> 01:21:47

there is a mafia Okay. Zakka Monica Luffy

01:21:48--> 01:21:50

any questions? I wanted

01:21:59--> 01:21:59

to know

01:22:05--> 01:22:06

what exactly you're asking about

01:22:10--> 01:22:11

the relationship

01:22:13--> 01:22:14

between

01:22:20--> 01:22:22

this is this is profound circle

01:22:23--> 01:22:24

put in putting us in trouble no.

01:22:27--> 01:22:30

Okay, the hottie the process and I'm sitting in little jewelry I'm gonna be I'm

01:22:32--> 01:22:38

gonna be in a hole in the rock face before I heal. Kita Maria Maria had an affair.

01:22:40--> 01:22:47

In La Jolla, America, Emily, I did not add to my Hakuna Vina who have been highly a lot. First feel quite lucky to have found Maria Maria and Jana.

01:22:51--> 01:23:00

Amanda's the deeds or the actions of the people of paradise until between him and Paradise, there's an arm's length, you almost reached it,

01:23:01--> 01:23:03

then the word of Allah comes through.

01:23:05--> 01:23:07

So he does some of the actions of the people of the fire.

01:23:08--> 01:23:09

And he enters the Alpha.

01:23:11--> 01:23:14

A person does the actions of the people of the Hellfire.

01:23:16--> 01:23:30

Until he's so close to it by Hans pan, then the word of Allah comes through comes to pass, he does the actions of the people of paradise. And he ends up in paradise, world conflict of choice, and

01:23:31--> 01:23:42

there's no conflict at all. There's no conflict at all. There's another version of this hadith, which is authentic. And it says in the module that I am going to be Amory algen, female of holiness.

01:23:43--> 01:23:57

Novels with them and we are married and enough female Yup, the huddle. in us. There's another narration of this hadith which there is an addition, additional clause there. And he says a person does the deeds of the people of paradise in what seems to other people

01:23:59--> 01:24:02

is what people see. But what's his heart

01:24:03--> 01:24:05

he does external actions.

01:24:06--> 01:24:30

But also that he's so close to Paradise, by an arm's length. So that shows that his deeds are not all for show off. They're not just empty actions, there is something there. And a person does the bad deeds of the people of the fire in what seems to be the case, that's how we see this person until he's close to it by one hand or one an arm's length. And then he does the actions of the people of paradise.

01:24:31--> 01:24:38

This shows that humans have gotten on board humans have an inner part in an outer part external part and

01:24:43--> 01:24:44

that a person

01:24:46--> 01:24:49

could have an evil heart. They could have evil intentions.

01:24:53--> 01:24:55

But still, they do good things.

01:24:56--> 01:25:00

They do good things, and life has not tests.

01:25:00--> 01:25:02

to them properly, fully.

01:25:03--> 01:25:17

So it seems, without a test without proper tests, this people this person is everything is smooth and easy and nice. And they're doing good things fine. But life has not tested them to reveal the reality.

01:25:19--> 01:25:24

So they seem to be going to the to Paradise, because haven't done anything serious and grave sin money.

01:25:25--> 01:25:27

But then life tests

01:25:28--> 01:25:37

and the last bout of their life, the last leg of their journey, and in this life, it tests them really to reveal what's the real heart is.

01:25:39--> 01:25:43

So they act from the heart and the action is going to be really bad.

01:25:45--> 01:25:51

So it's going to destroy everything that happened before because it's going to be something really great, something really bad. And that's why they end up in the alpha.

01:25:53--> 01:26:03

And the same thing to the person who's on the opposite side. He's done so many bad things, but this person has some goodness in his heart, real sincere, genuine deep goodness.

01:26:05--> 01:26:12

And life has been showing him the side which makes which brings up about the worst of him.

01:26:13--> 01:26:18

But the this test of life has not given him all the questions yet.

01:26:19--> 01:26:31

But life gives him a question towards the end of his life that actually serves to reveal the beautiful side of who he is. And that beautiful side is so powerful that it overcomes all the evil,

01:26:33--> 01:26:35

all the evil, so,

01:26:37--> 01:26:40

so that he ends up in paradise. So the point is,

01:26:44--> 01:26:51

people are going to see the consequences of their actions. And we said previously, not only the external actions, don't forget the actions of the heart.

01:26:52--> 01:27:09

actions of the heart, they are much more important, much more powerful. That doesn't mean external actions are not important. Don't pray them fast. No, they're all connected. They're all connected. So what it means, how you choose to respond to the test of life, that's going to define how you end up.

01:27:11--> 01:27:37

That's it. And the point in this hadith is don't judge people leave the judgment for Allah. Because what you see is the external type of the external side of people. And this is why you could have a friend and this happens even in our personal life, you could have a friend, this friend has been very good with you. You've known him for 20 years, when something seriously happened, you might discover that this person actually doesn't deserve your friendship.

01:27:39--> 01:27:40

There are people like this.

01:27:42--> 01:28:06

So that's exactly what it means. And it sounds justified to you have known this person for 20 years, but something happened and reveal the very bad aspects very evil aspect of that person. Say I have nothing to do with you from now on. That's it. That's the end of it. What about the 20 years? And this what you did, it destroys everything. Because it revealed some bad characteristic about some but seriously bad thing about you.

01:28:07--> 01:28:21

So that's what it means. So it's not about Allah setting up people. No, there's no issue. choice here. There's no choice. Like the choices there. There's no challenge challenge of choice, how he behaved at the beginning, and how he behaved at the end.

01:28:22--> 01:28:26

That was his choice, right? Same thing for that person. So choices there.

01:28:27--> 01:28:37

But the word of Allah comes through your speaker heading indicator, means Allah subhanaw taala. He knows the future. So he's written the future.

01:28:39--> 01:28:41

And whatever he's written is going to happen because

01:28:42--> 01:28:44

that's what how things are going to be.

01:28:47--> 01:28:51

Does this answer the issue in your head? Yeah, still something there?

01:28:53--> 01:29:23

Okay, there's no as there's no challenge of choice that there's no mention of choice. The choices that you have, you behave good, you behave bad at any point in your life. But this also gives hope, and it gives fear, a go gives hope that no matter what you have done in the past, you can always change things. You can always change things, even if it's in the last gasp of life, you can change things. And on the other side, it shows that no matter how good you are, you'll never take pride in yourself. You never take paradise for granted.

01:29:35--> 01:29:41

Well, if you say to yourself, no matter what I do, I might end up like that person and I'm saying you you might be setting yourself up

01:29:43--> 01:29:59

is when you are thinking about your good deeds. Don't think in that sense. That's not the right point of focus. When you're doing good deeds, see yourself not doing enough for Allah and put your hope in Allah that he's gonna help you keep
