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

These verses refer to many beautiful and sublime attributes of the Creator. He mentions his perfect divinity, his complete self sufficiency and the need of all creatures of him for him, and the glorification and praise of the Lord by all who are in the heavens and on earth. And he tells us that all Dominion belongs to Allah. So no creature is beyond his control all praises for Him, praise for what he possesses, have perfect attributes, praise for what he has created of all things, praise for what he has prescribed of laws and what he has bestowed of blessings. His power is all encompassing. And nothing that exists is beyond his control. Nothing he wills is beyond him. He

00:03:47 --> 00:03:54

tells us that he created human beings, and made some of them believers and some of them disbelievers.

00:03:55 --> 00:04:25

Therefore their faith of disbelief is all according to the will and the decree of Allah. And it is He Who allowed that for them, as he has given them power and will by means of which they are able to choose to comply with whatever they want of his commands and prohibitions. And Allah sees well all what you do, having mentioned the creation of man, who is accountable and subject to commands, who is subject to commands and prohibitions, Allah Now mentions the creation of other creative things.

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

Allah created the heavens and earth, that is their physical essence and all that is in them. And he has made them well for a true purpose that is on the basis of wisdom for the purpose that he intended. And he shaped you and shaped you. Well. This is like the verse in which Allah says, Verily We have created man in the best of conditions. Man is the best of all creatures in form and the most elegant in shape, and on to hit and also him is the return of all on the Day of Resurrection, when he will requite you

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

Not for your faith or disbelief, and he will question you about the blessings and life of ease that he bestowed upon you. Did you give thanks to him or not, then Allah munches to encompass the encompassing nature of his knowledge. He knows all that is in the heavens and on earth, that is of things that are hidden and obvious, unseen and seen. And he knows what you conceal and what you disclose. Allah knows while what is in your hearts, that is, what they contain of good secrets and negative feelings, good intentions and corrupt aims, because he knows well what is in our hearts, it is essential for the wise person to be keen and strive to guard his inner thoughts from bad

00:05:40 --> 00:05:43

attitudes and to acquire good characteristics.

00:05:46 --> 00:05:51

So this introduction, this is the first part of the surah development is actually

00:05:53 --> 00:06:00

a loss of hundreds and introduce introduces himself to us. Allah is telling us something about himself and something really

00:06:01 --> 00:06:02

profound about him.

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


00:06:05 --> 00:06:42

Allah is saying first that everything in the heavens and the earth glorifies Allah celebrates the praises of Allah. So you said, this be as insalata the sloth Allah says we're immature in names and before we end, we're lacking a lot of Coronavirus. We have everything in existence glorifies Allah and praises Allah subhanaw taala but you don't you don't, you can't relate to that. It can't relate to their priests. You can't comprehend it. Okay, so everything in the, all the all the creatures of Allah Subhana Allah present except for to

00:06:44 --> 00:06:51

the only exception or to humans and jinn, the disbelievers among them, they don't praise Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:52 --> 00:06:53

but everything else,

00:06:55 --> 00:07:02

even what we call inanimate objects, you know, wood, iron, tables, trees,

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05


00:07:07 --> 00:07:17

you name it, whatever, not even objects in not only objects, but even other things as well. Whatever you want to say, light, atoms, air,

00:07:18 --> 00:07:22

water, everything praises Allah subhanaw taala in its own way,

00:07:23 --> 00:07:31

in its own way, the only creatures that are given choice are humans and the jinn. So the disbelievers among them don't. And

00:07:33 --> 00:07:35

Allah mentions, for example, in solid

00:07:37 --> 00:07:43

and believing sorts of Ambia that everything prostrates to Allah included, everything.

00:07:46 --> 00:07:49

Everything except for some humans and some gene.

00:07:52 --> 00:08:06

So everything in existence worships Allah in its own way. And we don't necessarily understand how it does that. So it praises Allah and the prostrates to Allah subhanho wa taala. Why because Allah is the one who deserves that.

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

It Allah deserves this. It's not like

00:08:12 --> 00:08:52

it's not an external or an extra layer to existence, the praise of Allah subhanaw taala it's a must. It's the essence of existence, is the purpose of existence. The reason everything exists is actually to praise Allah Torontonian if you remember from last week, the last verse in Surah, Apollo, why Allah subhanaw taala what is the purpose behind the existence of everything we spoke about this, this ties in nicely with that. So everything praises Allah for that, because the nature of everything is that it actually praises Allah. Why? Because that's the most important that's the most natural thing to praise Allah subhanaw taala because he's worthy of praise. And we say the word in

00:08:52 --> 00:09:10

Arabic is at hand. So it's, it's actually good to bring it bring it up here at hand. It's usually translated as praise. But praise is a very tiny bit of a hint. Because praise is all about what the good good words that you say it's more on the surface, but at hand is actually a state of the heart.

00:09:12 --> 00:09:18

at hand, is the state of the heart. What is it handed hand is a recognition,

00:09:19 --> 00:09:41

a recognition of Allah's glory and Allah's greatness, and Allah's beauty, and his names and attributes, the kind of state that your heart goes into upon recognizing the greatness, the beauty, the might, the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala that state of Allah possessing all good

00:09:42 --> 00:09:44

is called praise.

00:09:45 --> 00:09:48

And then you expressing that in words.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:58

Also sorry, that's a ham. So you expressing that in words, is also part of a ham this the external part of it, which usually gets translated as phrase

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

So this is why actually a lot of the meaning you know goes missing when you translate it into English as praise but pretty much it's very hard to you know capture the word and this is why Imam Sadie here says, Will him do kulula Who all praise are all hand truly belongs to Allah. Hamdan Allah Muhammad SIFAT will command.

00:10:20 --> 00:10:25

So he deserves hemmed because of the perfection of His attributes

00:10:27 --> 00:10:34

and also Hamden Alhama agenda home inertia, and also he deserves praise because of what he created.

00:10:35 --> 00:10:43

Well, hamdulillah mashallah, at home in Allah calm, and he's also deserves Hammond, because of the legislation that he and the guidance that he sent.

00:10:45 --> 00:10:54

And what as their homeland Nyan ona and also he deserves hand because of the blessings that He showered his creation with.

00:10:55 --> 00:11:04

So that's the reality of it handled hand is sent some sort of sense of, you know, you're so glad, so fulfilled. So

00:11:09 --> 00:11:16

I'm struggling even for words in English. But you're so glad you're such you're in such a blessed state.

00:11:18 --> 00:11:23

Upon realizing the beauty and the glory and the greatness of Allah,

00:11:24 --> 00:11:34

and you are in such a state, again, such a blissful state, because of the blessings of Allah upon you, because of the actions of Allah.

00:11:36 --> 00:11:44

And because who Allah is, because of who Allah is, you are in such a blessed state, you say, I'm glad for that.

00:11:45 --> 00:12:08

Multiply that by 100 times, would be getting closer to the meaning of a hand, really. So when you say hamdu, lillahi, Rabbil Alameen. That's what you're saying. People think, oh, it's it's thankfulness. It's being thankful. No, that's a very tiny bit of the meaning. Most of the experience is really in the heart. It's a state that your heart goes into a state of being so glad and so blessed.

00:12:09 --> 00:12:16

It's it's a state of fulfillment, a state of being blessed, and things like that.

00:12:18 --> 00:12:21

Okay, so, so that's an Al Hamdulillah, except

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

you said before the line of symmetry, will MOLKO I will help. So before that, he says level molk, meaning everything belongs to Allah. Everything in existence is Allah's property.

00:12:34 --> 00:12:39

Everything in existence is Allah's including you include including your soul,

00:12:40 --> 00:12:53

including what you have, including what you do, including what you think, including what you feel, all of that is the property of Allah and it belongs to Allah subhanaw taala everything.

00:12:55 --> 00:13:00

So in existence, there are, there are two entities if you like,

00:13:01 --> 00:13:10

there is the creator, two categories of existent things, there is the Creator. And there is the creation, there is nothing else.

00:13:11 --> 00:13:44

There is the creator, that's Allah and then there is the creation, which is everything else is the creation. And the creation belongs to Allah. So he's the owner, the master the king, and everything else is his property. Everything is his, it's his creation, and it belongs to him. The whole milk Allah will help Wahoo Allah coalition Kadir again, he's able to do all things. He's the Almighty, He's powerful, hello customer what you will Allah will help he created the heavens and the earth in truth, what does that mean for purpose?

00:13:45 --> 00:13:51

So he created everything for a reason. And it's a great purpose and so why is purpose

00:13:53 --> 00:13:59

so he created the heavens in the earth and everything that follows from this, including the events of your life,

00:14:01 --> 00:14:23

including your circumstances. So everything in existence is part of this big plan. This profound scheme that Allah subhanaw taala put together and he created the world for it and the purpose for that we said is what the worship of Allah the deeper meaning that we spoke about which is the love of Allah subhana wa Tada Allah is loved.

00:14:26 --> 00:14:41

So that's why Allah created everything. Hello personality will Allah will help me that's what it means he created the heavens and the earth in truth. Not for a foolish reason. Not for a random purpose. There is a purpose that Allah subhanaw taala

00:14:43 --> 00:14:48

of which Allah created was a welcome for us and also welcome

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

okay, we'll come to it.

00:14:55 --> 00:14:59

So, what's a word I'll confess and also Oracle he

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

shaped you and He gave you the best shape, or he shaped you? Well, he gave you a pleasant shape. And that's the reality about humans, Allah subhanaw taala created humans compared to other animals in the best shape,

00:15:12 --> 00:15:21

in the best shape not only in terms of aesthetics, because essence in the Arabic language includes aesthetics and includes functionality.

00:15:22 --> 00:15:27

So Allah subhanaw taala created humans in the best shape, not only in their physical

00:15:28 --> 00:15:43

structure, but also in what in their function in your capacity, to think, your capacity to emote, to have feelings, to have inner experiences, your capacity to choose.

00:15:44 --> 00:15:49

Your Capacity to socialize, to engage, to speak, to think to rationalize,

00:15:50 --> 00:15:52

all of that is part of your structure.

00:15:53 --> 00:16:04

And that's the same meaning of liquid Harlequinade inside of us, anytime we move created man in the best shape or the best structure, the best form that includes everything.

00:16:06 --> 00:16:21

And we know obviously that humans have been endowed compared to the, to the creation and compared to the creation on earth here that Allah subhanaw taala made humans superior in most senses, on most so welcome vessels so welcome.

00:16:23 --> 00:16:31

What you know you hit a muscle here and you're going to return to Him. So that kind of design that Allah gave you that kind of perfection according to which Allah designed you is actually

00:16:33 --> 00:16:51

is designed for a reason for a purpose for for an end, there is a specific intended end for that. It's not just Allah favorite you for no reason there is there is a plan. There's a purpose behind it. There is something behind it. So going back to the previous verse, one of the Halacha, confirming Catherine amico moment, Allahu

00:16:53 --> 00:17:00

Allah we met and they don't ever say, so he's the one who created you. And it turned out among you there are believers, and there are disbelievers.

00:17:02 --> 00:17:04

And Allah is Allah sees all you do.

00:17:06 --> 00:17:23

And, again, we know that people believe and people disbelieve by the permission of Allah, and by the will of Allah subhanaw taala. And this issue of al Qaeda, you know, people get confused about it. We understand that Allah subhanaw taala says that we have choice to believe or disbelieve

00:17:25 --> 00:17:32

dementia, I mean, come are you stalking for those of you who choose to follow the straight path dementia? I mean, come on yesterday.

00:17:33 --> 00:17:39

Juan Mata Shah owner Illa Yasha, Allahu Allah, Buddha and me, but you can only choose if Allah allows you to.

00:17:42 --> 00:18:01

If Allah allows you to. So Allah subhanaw taala allows us choice so we are able to choose good from evil we are we are able to choose belief from disbelief. But Allah subhanaw taala when He created us, He created us into believers and disbelievers. No contradiction,

00:18:02 --> 00:18:08

no contradiction. For example, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said about the boy that was

00:18:10 --> 00:18:17

that was that was killed by a huddle. Right the story of Musa calf he saw a boy and he killed him right.

00:18:23 --> 00:18:29

The Prophet SAW Selim says in in Alfetta, Allah the paternal yo Mahalia

00:18:31 --> 00:18:35

to be a calf your holy cow calf, he was created a disbeliever

00:18:37 --> 00:18:38

does that mean he has no choice

00:18:42 --> 00:18:50

and also we know that the when the person when it's four months the the fetus is four months in the womb, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said

00:18:52 --> 00:18:55

fee and zero Malecon for equitable.

00:18:56 --> 00:18:58

Angela home, what is a home

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

or shatta Unum side.

00:19:03 --> 00:19:07

So the person their lifespan, the time on Earth would be written,

00:19:08 --> 00:19:10

their provision would be written

00:19:12 --> 00:19:15

and whether he's going to be a believer or disbeliever.

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

Does that mean Allah forces us No.

00:19:25 --> 00:19:36

These two facts go hand in hand. If you're unable to get them together, just believe in both of them. But don't bring them in a state of contradiction at all. Allah subhanaw taala says you choose.

00:19:37 --> 00:20:00

You choose whether you go to the paradise paradise or the Hellfire you choose faith or you choose disbelief. You choose to obey Allah subhanaw taala or disobey Allah subhanaw taala then Allah subhanaw taala says He created us into believers and disbelievers. That doesn't mean force doesn't mean that ALLAH SubhanA compels us into any when it comes to our faith but

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


00:20:02 --> 00:20:10

everything is the creation of Allah subhanaw taala including your belief and your disbelief is the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala

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


00:20:13 --> 00:20:31

yeah and then we'll mafia somehow it yellow mafia somewhat evil all the way at the MoMA to serve Runa woman to Allah who had a movie that just adores Allah knows, not only did he create the heavens and the earth and everything and everything you can, again, you can talk about all levels, you can talk about the levels of

00:20:32 --> 00:20:35

single celled creatures

00:20:36 --> 00:20:44

can talk about bacteria, you can talk about germs, all of that. Allah created all of this, and Allah knows each one of them

00:20:46 --> 00:20:47

all the time.

00:20:48 --> 00:20:57

Allah knows their past, Allah knows their present, Allah knows their future, there is nothing that Allah doesn't know. And there's nothing that Allah is not aware of.

00:20:58 --> 00:21:29

There's nothing that Allah is not aware of. For us humans, our knowledge is limited and our awareness is limited. There are things you know but you are not aware of now, you have to go back to the maybe memories right? You have to bring them from the shelf you have to pull from the shelf, then you bring them to your awareness. That's because we humans are limited with Allah subhanaw taala Allah's knowledge is complete and full and Allah's awareness is complete and full. So that's why Allah is not comparable to us when we talk about Allah knows it's not comparable to us.

00:21:31 --> 00:21:34

Okay, so, so Allah subhanaw taala knows everything

00:21:36 --> 00:21:50

halacha Sama, Sama Yaga Mathisen Marathi when Allah knows everything in the heavens and the earth and everything within them, right? Well, yeah, Allah mama to Serena Amato. Allah knows what you can see and what you reveal. What do you conceal?

00:21:51 --> 00:21:52

And what do you reveal?

00:21:54 --> 00:22:19

What you conceal is the actions of the heart. What you will reveal is your extent use your words and your external actions. So Allah knows that Allah knows what's in your heart. And Allah says, On the Day of Judgment, well how CMF is so good, and what's in the chests, which is what you can seal will be brought out, it will be laid out, it will be exposed, will be put on display.

00:22:21 --> 00:22:54

So this is why it made me sad to hear Rahim Allah to Allah, He says, This is why rational person should be so keen to preserve their inner, their inner world, their inner thoughts, that inner intentions, you harbor, you harbor evil intentions, you harbor you harbor evil thoughts, you entertain them, you give them space, you process them, you regurgitate them, evil intentions, and you say Allah will not hold me accountable, they will corrupt your inner dimension, and eventually they're going to come out. So be careful.

00:22:55 --> 00:22:56

Be careful.

00:22:57 --> 00:23:32

Keep your heart as pure as your external actions should always be better. It should always be better. And don't say, you know, no, I can, you know, inside in my, in my mind, I can think of whatever I want, I can intend whatever I want, I can entertain any intentions, give them some space, right? And I won't be held accountable by that. But you know, what the dynamics of the heart are such that if you entertain evil, it's gonna come out. And the longer you keep it in, the more damage it creates in your heart.

00:23:34 --> 00:23:37

So choose, and the reality of the person is their heart.

00:23:39 --> 00:23:46

So you should actually preserve your heart more than anything else. Because that's what's going to save you on the Day of Judgment. It's your heart.

00:23:47 --> 00:23:50

So don't don't ever like

00:23:52 --> 00:24:01

Don't indulge in evil intentions and thoughts and fancy ideas, right? That are inappropriate, don't indulge in them.

00:24:02 --> 00:24:14

Don't they will become your reality they will become your behavior. They will come out and they will just make your your your heart rock slowly and it becomes hard to fix.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:29

So don't entertain that. Honestly. Don't let Chapin mess with your heart. Because when you entertain all that evil, you actually you're receiving shaytaan as a guest and he is saying you know be my guest do what you want.

00:24:30 --> 00:24:32

What do you think chiffon is going to do to your heart?

00:24:33 --> 00:24:34

It's going to ruin your

00:24:36 --> 00:24:59

Allah subhanaw taala now tells us of what happened to previous nations and past generations, whose stories are still told by later generations, the truth will speak of them and how when the messengers brought the truth to them, they stubbornly they stubbornly rejected it. Therefore, all luck caused them to taste the evil consequences of their deeds in this world and to be disgraced thereby, and they're theirs will be a painful punishment in the hereafter. Hence, he mentioned the reason for this punishment, that

00:27:04 --> 00:27:48

namely, the punishment that they and the evil consequences that were sent upon them happened because their messengers came to the clinic came to them with clear signs that pointed to truth and falsehood, but they resented it and were arrogant towards their messengers, and said, Shall mere men guide us? That is the they are no better than us. The Why did Allah singled them out and not us? This is like the verse in which Allah says, their messenger said to them, indeed, we are, we are human beings like yourselves. But Allah bestows His favor upon whomever he wills of His slaves. They denied the blessings and favor that Allah bestowed upon His prophets by decree that they should be

00:27:48 --> 00:27:52

messengers to humankind, and were too arrogant to submit to them.

00:27:53 --> 00:28:24

That led them to worship rocks and trees and the like. Thus they disbelieved in Allah and turned away from obedience to Him. But Allah had no need for them, and does not care about them, and they're going astray does not harm him in the slightest. And Allah is self sufficient, Worthy of all praise. That is, he is the self sufficient, who is completely and absolutely independent, and has no need of anyone in any way. praise worthy in his words, actions and attributes.

00:28:25 --> 00:29:01

Okay, so in this, in these two verses, Allah subhanaw taala just makes a reference to previous nations, how they disbelieved and they met, the punishment of Allah that incurred the Wrath of Allah and the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala upon themselves. What is the reason for that punishment? It was that they disbelieved in the clear signs from Allah that were sent through messengers. So when the messengers came, and this shows that a believer or someone who seeks the truth and honest person, a sincere person should accept the truth, regardless who it comes to them through.

00:29:05 --> 00:29:38

We see that, at least this actually echoes what Emily's did. A las Panatela honored Adam Alayhis Salam and commanded the angels to prostrate before him, a bliss was jealous, like I'm better than him. What's so special about him? So the same thing, you know, you will find the traits of the bliss, always manifesting in the people of disbelief and the people of sin, always. So they are they're arrogant. You know, these are just humans like us. So what is so special about them that they receive the message from the Creator from God. But this is not the this is not how you recognize good or evil.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:49

This is not how you recognize it. And you will find this manifests maybe today slightly differently. People would say, Oh, you come from backward nations. So why would the truth be with you?

00:29:50 --> 00:29:59

For example, are you willing to belong to this ethnicity or that ethnicity? You're not as civilized as we are today. So why would you have the truth or if you had that

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

Truth, you shouldn't be the most civilized, or the most advanced nation on Earth. Right? That's not how you recognize the truth.

00:30:07 --> 00:30:38

That's not how you recognize you recognize the truth with humility, and with sincerity, and turning to your Creator to Allah, Spanish Allah to guide you to it. And then you stay open. And Allah put the clues within you and your footwork. We said, if you stay sincere, and you find your desires, and use you stay on watch, you stay very vigilant when it comes to your desires and your bias so that they don't cloud your vision and you search for the truth. Eventually Allah will guide you.

00:30:40 --> 00:30:49

So that's how you know the truth by seeking it from its source from Allah Subhan Allah, Allah subhanaw taala turning to him and staying humble. The truth doesn't come to those who are arrogant.

00:30:50 --> 00:31:11

And the reason for disbelief is arrogance. Many times in the Quran, Allah refers to the disbelievers. He says it's arrogance. perubahan kiloton one was the Quran, their hearts are in denial of something that is true, and they are arrogant. They are in a state of arrogance. They're living from a state of arrogance. That's the only way you can reject the truth.

00:31:12 --> 00:31:21

So sometimes it's a person you don't like it's a person that you that you that you deem to be inferior to you. But maybe in the sight of Allah, they are better than you.

00:31:24 --> 00:31:48

But you should be searching for the truth per se. Okay, so, so that was their attitude. When the truth came to them. They started you know, bringing up excuses rationalization as to why we don't want to follow it. Who are you still humans like us? Why should we follow you? What superiority or authority do you have over us what excellence or advantage you have so that you receive the message and we didn't receive it?

00:31:50 --> 00:31:57

Again, this kind of attitude again, comes from a bliss and you can't you can't find the truth with this kind of, of attitude.

00:31:59 --> 00:32:08

For Kafala, whatever look Western Allah, Allah Allah, Allah is Rich. Allah is self sufficient. He doesn't need your faith. He doesn't need you belief and the prophets Allah Islam says

00:32:09 --> 00:32:38

Lowen Willa como Alpha como encircle Medina Concarneau Capalbo Julie Minco masa de la, masa, masa, Derek if you will, Keisha Hadith what you see. We don't know what a como FLR como encircle Majin Nico Kano Allah of Judea Pearl Bureau during war, I didn't mean Commando. So they come in Malaysia, Allah says Hadith with Divine Hadith, that if all of you the first and the last, the jinn and man and humankind, everyone the good and the bad among you, all of you.

00:32:39 --> 00:32:50

If you were upon the most, Richard the most evil heart, heart in existence, you would not take away from my power and my dominion, you will not affect me.

00:32:51 --> 00:33:06

And if all of you the first and the last, all of the humans and all of the gender, and the good and the bad among you, if all of you were upon the most righteous heart ever, you would not add to my Dominion anything you would not offer me.

00:33:08 --> 00:33:09

Allah doesn't need us.

00:33:10 --> 00:33:13

He doesn't need us. We are the ones who need

00:33:15 --> 00:33:21

Allah is glorious by himself. Allah is self sufficient by himself. He's the greatest by himself.

00:33:23 --> 00:33:26

So we're Stefan Allahu Allahu

00:33:28 --> 00:33:33

Allah is not not in need of His creation. He's not in need of anything. He's not in need of anyone

00:33:34 --> 00:33:44

and he's Hamid he's again he's good in everything he does. He's good in himself and in everything he does. That's why he deserves a hand Hamid the one who truly

00:33:45 --> 00:33:49

deserves and owns hand all of it completely.

00:33:51 --> 00:34:13

Okay, we can continue inshallah on how to laminate sheet on there for gyms I'm a lady and I can follow and the Yoga I thought cool Bella Bella to Bathroom Bathroom melatonin Habima meltham with Alec Eliza, I just remembered something about humility Subhanallah talking about humility, when when a person you're not Imam Shafi has a very famous statement

00:34:15 --> 00:34:16

he says

00:34:21 --> 00:34:52

man over to a hidden in Terminator and you'll hear Allah will help validly Sonny. He said I never had a discussion. And for those who speak Arabic kimono Avila today is translated as debate but at that time it was discussion. More like a discussion. Man or two had an eliminate when you've heard Allahu Akbar Allah recently, I every time I had a discussion or if you want to debate but a discussion with someone over a metre, obviously Sharia right Islamic stuff.

00:34:53 --> 00:34:59

Except that I wish all the time. The Allah brings the

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

truth of the matter through that person

00:35:04 --> 00:35:06

that Allah places the truth on the tongue of this person.

00:35:10 --> 00:35:18

All of us in discussions and debates with love that we say, you know the truth that or we say the or that we win the debate, right?

00:35:19 --> 00:35:31

That we get it right, not the other person, but Imam Shafi says every time I had a discussion or a debate with someone, I always wish that they come up with the truth or they actually win the debate. And it's the truth.

00:35:33 --> 00:35:55

So some of the biographers or students of Imam Shafi are Mr. Latona. They said the reason he said that is that because Imam Shafi was humble, and he would accept the truth when it comes from others, but he was concerned that if the truth came through him, that the other person would possibly maybe be too arrogant accepted.

00:35:57 --> 00:36:02

So for him, it would be a better scenario that the truth comes through another person and he accepts it.

00:36:03 --> 00:36:12

Rather than, you know, having a situation where someone would reject the truth just became just because it became it came through a shuffling through his opponent.

00:36:13 --> 00:36:20

And the membership he didn't just say that he was actually he lived that. There's a very interesting incident that happened.

00:36:22 --> 00:36:23

It was a very

00:36:25 --> 00:36:30

strong discussion that happened between him and another scholar. Aboard debate, of course, and even Salem.

00:36:32 --> 00:36:51

A discussion over a matter of Okimoto Imam Shafi had an opinion about obaidul, Qasim had another opinion, the opposite opinion, and they discussed the matter and they debated and you know what, when they left Imam Shafi he changed his mind and was convinced of the opinion of Abu word obaidul class and

00:36:52 --> 00:37:34

he saw that he actually, he nailed it. But interestingly, I won't be the customers and I'm also left having adopted the opinion of Imam Shafi himself, that shows you the humility. So again, these are the people Subhanallah these are the people that Allah brings light to their heart, because they're searching for the truth. It's not about their ego. It's not about me winning the debate. So not about me saving my face. It's really about what the truth it's about the truth do I want the truth at all costs? That's what I value the most because the truth is what leads you to Allah subhanaw taala okay. So call out to blindness regimes and Zama Latina Cafaro and the UVA through poly Bella

00:38:23 --> 00:39:06

here ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada tells us of the stubbornness and false claims of the disbelievers and their denial of the resurrection with no knowledge, no guidance and no clear book, he commanded the noblest of his creation to swear by historic that he would indeed resurrect them and requite them for their evil deeds and rejection of the truth. And that is easy for a law for even though it is difficult, and in fact impossible for humans. For even for even if all their strength were combined to revive one dead person, they will not be able to do that. But Allah subhanaw taala when he wills a ladder, he merely says to it be and it is, Allah says elsewhere, the Trumpet will be blown and all

00:39:06 --> 00:39:17

those who are in the heavens and on earth will soon except whoever whomever Allah wills, then it will be blown again. We're upon they will be standing looking around.

00:40:36 --> 00:41:16

Having mentioned the denial of those who denied the resurrection, and that and that this was an implication of disbelief on their part in a law and his revelations, last volatile and no enjoined adherence to that which will protect one from Doom and misery, which is to this which is to believe in a law and hidden and he in his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his book. Allah calls it a lot of calls his book light, because the light is the opposite of darkness. And the rulings laws and stories in the book that Allah has sent down are lights that will guide one in the dark depths of overwhelming ignorance, and enable him to walk in the darkness of night.

00:41:17 --> 00:41:58

Anything other than following the guidance of the book of Allah is a type of knowledge of which the harm is greater than any benefit, and it's evil is greater than its good. In fact, there there is nothing good and no benefit in it, except that which is in accordance with the message brought by the messengers, believe in Allah, His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his book dictates that one should have certain faith and true belief in them, and that one should act in accordance with them by complying with their commands and heating their permissions. And Allah is well aware of all what you do, and you will requite you for your deeds, both righteous and otherwise.

00:41:59 --> 00:42:04

The thing that we want to focus here on is a normal light

00:42:06 --> 00:42:31

and the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala is described as North light. Allah says for the upcoming Allah He Nora, Lucky terrible mobian Idva Allah Who Manitoba Juan Subala Salem will read you who minable humanity it can only be hidden. So there has come to you from Allah light illumination, no okito mobian and the Clear Book

00:42:33 --> 00:42:36

Yeah, DB Allah Allah guides through it.

00:42:37 --> 00:42:48

Whoever follows it the path or the ways of peace. So Buddha salah, are you ready Homina automatic automatically know the law takes them out from the darkness and into the light brings them into the light.

00:42:50 --> 00:42:55

And solitary Bukhara. Allah says Allah will even live in Amman, will you read your own? Minato? No matter either? No.

00:42:56 --> 00:42:57

Allah is the guardian

00:42:58 --> 00:43:06

of the believers. He takes them from the darkness or saves them from the darkness brings them into the light.

00:43:08 --> 00:43:20

Allah says a woman can AMITA Yeah. Now what do I know the horn all on? MGB evenness. Come on with Allah Horfield bolo, Matthew, Lisa, the hydrogen Minar is the one who is dead.

00:43:23 --> 00:43:36

Then to whom We gave life, anyone who is someone who had been dead and to whom we then we brought to life. So a person who had been dead that we brought to life Allah brought to life.

00:43:38 --> 00:43:46

And we gave them light, give that person light with which this person lives among the creation.

00:43:47 --> 00:43:51

Like someone is that similar to someone who lives in darkness, and who's also dead.

00:43:52 --> 00:43:59

So Allah gives the analogy of light. Because the guidance from Allah is light. The truth is light.

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

And humans without the truth are in darkness.

00:44:05 --> 00:44:16

This is why there's nothing new. There's no neutrality. If someone says, you know, I don't want to follow the truth. I don't want to follow falsehood. You can't there is no middle ground. If you don't follow the light from Allah, you are already in darkness.

00:44:17 --> 00:44:26

You're already in darkness and the health of the heart of hammock Allah there are two things. Two aspects of the heart really constitute the health of the heart, the life,

00:44:27 --> 00:44:41

the vibrancy, the life energy of the heart, and the light of it is what Allah says in that verse that we quoted, and I think it's in salt. A Jana Jonas. I guess it's in Zachary Yes, unsalted in

00:44:42 --> 00:44:50

that Allah subhanaw taala says, a dead person to whom We gave life and we give them light, life and light.

00:44:51 --> 00:44:59

You revive the life with pesky and you bring the light with him with knowledge and remember the Teskey and knowledge

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

For the two twins together, mentioned in some verses, that's that's what really the heart needs. So the guidance from Allah is like anything else is just darkness.

00:45:12 --> 00:45:15

And without that light you can't find the way to Allah subhana wa Tada

00:45:18 --> 00:45:24

so Allah subhanaw taala is saying believe in Allah and His messenger and the light that we sent here is the Quran and whatever it contains

00:45:27 --> 00:45:42

okay, we continue on our doula Himanshu audible external gem yo maya Leo Miljan ADA de que yo moto Obon woman yomim biLlahi wireman Saudi you can fit on who's a Yeti. We will fill homogeneity integer team in Tachyon and how to call the dean of

In wishing that in Morocco.

00:47:37 --> 00:48:19

There is a new requite you on the Day of Gathering on which on which Allah will gather the first and the last and make them stand in a huge assembly and who will inform them of what they did. On that day the differences between people will become apparent. Some people will be raised to the highest status in lofty chambers and dwellings that contain all delights and pleasures. And some people will be brought down to the lowest of low status, a place of distress, anguish, grief and severe punishment that will be the outcome of what they set forth for themselves and what they did during their earthly life. Hence, Allah says, The Day of great loss, when there will be a huge difference

00:48:19 --> 00:48:54

between people in terms of winning and losing. The believers will be winners and the evildoers will be great losers, the wicked will realize that they were following something of no value, and that they are indeed losers. It is as if it is as if it was asked, How does one attain prosperity and bliss or incurred Doom and loss. And so Allah subhanaw taala matches the causes and means of both saying, but whoever believes in Allah with perfect faith, which includes believing in everything that Allah has enjoyed people to believe

00:48:55 --> 00:49:39

it and does righteous deeds, both obligatory and supererogatory. By fulfilling his duties towards the law and towards his slaves, who will absolve them of their bad deeds and admit them to gardens to which rivers flow in which there is all their souls may desire, and that they will delight their eyes for, for which their hearts long, where they will find their ultimate desires to abide there in forever. That is the supreme triumph. However, those who disbelieve and reject our science, that is they disbelieve in them without basing their disbelief on any religious texts are rational thinking, rather clear evidence came to them, but they disbelieved in it and stubbornly rejected and pointed

00:49:39 --> 00:49:51

to it. There will be inhabitants of the fire, to abide there in forever, a hapless journey's end because it will contain all suffering, hardship, misery and torment.

00:49:52 --> 00:49:59

Okay, so this is a reference to the day of judgment. So Allah subhanaw taala mentioned how previous nations disbelieved, then Allah Subhan

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

As I mentioned how the disbelievers argue against the truth, seeing again that what is so special about those people, the messengers, that they have the truth and we don't have it or that they receive revelation and we don't receive it.

00:50:13 --> 00:50:46

And then the Command of Allah subhanaw taala, to follow the messengers or Salam believe in Him and accept the light that he was sent with. Then Allah says, and if you don't, then Allah Subhana Allah is going to reveal what's in you what's in your, what, again, what you can see, learn what you reveal is going to Allah is going to expose the reality of everything. The Day of Judgment is the RIA is the day when all truths will be brought out. Clearly, there'll be no falsehood, there will be no deception. There'll be no forgetfulness, everything will just be clear. So

00:50:48 --> 00:50:53

then Allah says the only regimental committee homage me that if anyone were to have known allah God was due to the day of a terrible

00:50:55 --> 00:50:56

again, it's available.

00:50:58 --> 00:51:03

The Prophet SAW Selim says in a hadith, meta anima are born on female cathedral minuteness.

00:51:04 --> 00:51:47

A Soeharto will follow two blessings that people miss out on people don't appreciate them. People deceive themselves with regards to the value of these two gifts. So ha good health, times of good health and will fall off, you know, leisure time, like when you have time on your hands. These are blessings from Allah and most people don't use these don't take advantage. When you fail to use or utilize something that is good. You have deceived yourself. You have shortchanged yourself and this is called Orban in the Arabic language, it's like you deceive yourself, and you shortchange yourself. That's, that's what it means. So this is why in in, you will find in in the field of

00:51:47 --> 00:51:58

transactions, you know that any transaction that has a woman it's called the Hoban, Obon, which is deception or disadvantage

00:51:59 --> 00:52:02

to the pet to the to the buyer, or the seller

00:52:03 --> 00:52:08

becomes Hello. It's deception loss, deception and loss. Okay.

00:52:09 --> 00:52:32

So Allah subhanaw taala says, a lot called the Day of Judgment. Yo Mata Harbin, the day when the loss of the people of the Hellfire that was incurred by them deceiving themselves and fooling themselves will become manifest will become clearer, they will see the loss and they will see the difference between what they have earned compared to what the believers have had.

00:52:34 --> 00:52:41

And that's when their sorrow will reach, you know, the highest level. Your mage Malcolm Yama, Jimmy, Daddy, can you all want to harbor

00:52:43 --> 00:52:46

but whoever believes in Allah and His righteousness,

00:52:47 --> 00:53:30

then Allah would wipe their sins again, because you can't be perfect. could look no other Mahabharata in the world. All humans are as the prophets Oxfam said, All humans have faults and shortcomings. The point is not in your being perfect the point in your being sincere and steadfast, and then asking for forgiveness. The point is in striving to do your best, that's really what what matters with Allah subhanaw taala. So Allah would wipe their sins, and into that person into gardens into paradise, underneath rivers flow, and they will dwell there forever. And that's one of the greatest like, really, I would say, most impactful like things you hear about paradise is that it's

00:53:30 --> 00:53:41

forever. There's no fear of death. It's not going to come to an end, there'll be no suffering, there'll be no pain. There will be no sorrow, no sadness, it's just going to be

00:53:42 --> 00:54:10

pure joy for ever. You can't even imagine what forever means. But the safety, the the peace that comes into the heart, just by contemplating that is so profound. So Allah repeats that a lot in the Quran highly Dean if he had hardly been if he had a Buddha that you can call him that's really the greatest accomplishment. Whereas the opposite the disbelievers those who disbelieve those who are arrogant,

00:54:11 --> 00:54:25

so they reject the truth and they reject the signs of Allah subhanaw taala these will be the people of the hellfire and they will dwell their holiday Nephi forever they will dwell there they're in for ever and what an evil place to be in.

00:54:27 --> 00:54:31

And again, that's just the opposite. Just imagine being in pain forever.

00:54:32 --> 00:54:33

No break

00:54:35 --> 00:54:36

no break whatsoever.

00:54:38 --> 00:54:48

So again, I think like Allah subhanaw taala as he mentions these things to humans, Allah is making it clear. But you know with arrogance,

00:54:49 --> 00:54:57

people want see the point. So I think we can stop here inshallah to Hana and continue next week, but we can take a few questions so we have time for questions.

00:54:58 --> 00:54:59

And please keep the questions

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


00:55:01 --> 00:55:04

on topic insha Allah Tala from

00:55:07 --> 00:55:22

mentioned that this belief comes from arrogance. I mean, I understood that, but I have a difficult situation where when you approach someone in, let's say, a conversation of their Christian belief in your Islamic belief.

00:55:24 --> 00:55:39

I've never felt arrogance from them. But they seem to be so passionate. And like, you know, merciful and like Brunel, this says and John and they quoted. So it's like, how does their disbelief come to Americans? minutes? Not? Very good question. Yeah.

00:55:41 --> 00:55:54

So Allah subhanaw, Taala mentioned. And actually, some of the companions I don't recall, which of the companions said that when they were asked about disbelief, what is it boiled down to? They said, I'll keep arrogance.

00:55:56 --> 00:55:59

Not necessarily like arrogance, because arrogance is very pronounced.

00:56:01 --> 00:56:04

I don't know what words haughtiness would be still very pronounced.

00:56:05 --> 00:56:15

sense of superiority, supremacy. Even when it's subtle, that would be a little more accurate. I'm not sure. Maybe there's a better word even in English. For

00:56:16 --> 00:56:19

for that, for that sense of

00:56:20 --> 00:56:22

supremacy in the heart.

00:56:24 --> 00:56:35

So it's a good question, because you don't always sense that arrogance. You sense some people are humble and sincere, right? You do sense that. But the problem is, what you are dealing with is an A is a layer

00:56:37 --> 00:56:49

is a layer that actually camouflage is what's and if you managed to dig deeper with that person, if they allow you in to have a genuine discussion, really. And if they open up,

00:56:50 --> 00:57:04

and these layers get peeled off one after the other, you will arrive at a point where really what holds them back is some subtle form of sense of superiority, super messy, either in thought,

00:57:06 --> 00:57:15

or whatever. I think, again, so I don't like mentioning names, but and don't. Don't take me mentioning your name as

00:57:18 --> 00:57:31

How can I see as, as an invitation to maybe to listen to that person or anything? I don't know. Because I see sometimes clips from here and there. And I don't know what the person says. Right. So I can't make a judgement. But there was a clip that circulated a few months ago

00:57:33 --> 00:58:06

by this American brother, Shahid, brand. What's his name shaheed? What? Bolson chiede Bolson? Yes. And he has some brilliant short clips. I love. I think one of the questions that actually one of the clips that really made him famous in the last few months was the one about supremacy, that you seem to be so supremacist about your belief in Islam, and he actually turns the table against the question and he says, Well, I am a Muslim supremacist, because once you're convinced of something and you think it's the truth, you're a supremacist by definition.

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

Because you think your idea is superior, your conviction is superior in terms of the truth.

00:58:13 --> 00:58:28

So, that would actually link it to the concept of again, I think arrogance is problematic, because yes, arrogance is very pronounced externally, right. But we are what we are talking about here is actually something that is more subtle. And if you look at

00:58:29 --> 00:58:29


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

a bowtie lip,

00:58:33 --> 00:58:40

he was so gentle and so concerned and so loving of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he was so humbled with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, right?

00:58:42 --> 00:58:42


00:58:43 --> 00:58:51

how did this supremecy Oh, this is tick bar show. He said to the Prophet SAW Selim.

00:58:53 --> 00:58:55

When Allah, Hula, hula and Tapachula.

00:58:57 --> 00:59:10

And now, nd M and to have fun across to behind. He said to the Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam, it's had it had it not been for my fear that the Arabs would say that I said La Ilaha illa Allah out of fear

00:59:12 --> 00:59:15

I would have made you happy with it and said it that

00:59:19 --> 00:59:23

he didn't want the Arabs to say that he was scared of the Hellfire.

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

That's his instinct about

00:59:28 --> 00:59:40

that his instinct, but another narration about his district bar, he says, Do you want me to put my head at a level that is below my bottom? Referring to the dude said no, no, my head is always high.

00:59:41 --> 00:59:48

That's a little more pronounced. Okay. So that kind of said, It's good that you asked this question because arrogance is not really

00:59:50 --> 01:00:00

a word that really matches what we're talking about here. Stick bar is so much in the heart. If it gets pronounced, it could be taking different shapes. One of them is arrogance. So I hope by this

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

It's clarified right. Okay.

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

And I think

01:00:06 --> 01:00:07

Abuja as well.

01:00:08 --> 01:00:11

He had a conversation with a movie of insurance who later on became Muslim.

01:00:12 --> 01:00:30

Robin Sharma became Muslim. Abu Jehan was with him. Okay Robin Sharma who was from a PIF, they were walking in Mecca and the Prophet son was still giving Dawa in Mecca the prophets of salaam sees them so he stands with them and he says why isn't it time that you consider believing, listening to the truth, etcetera, etcetera.

01:00:31 --> 01:00:33

And Abuja had said to him,

01:00:34 --> 01:00:39

that you Benoit Benu AbdelMalek, Obon, Hashem

01:00:41 --> 01:01:05

they were, they were cousins. They were distant cousins. This was a faction from Christ. And this was a faction. He said, There's competition between them, you know, the arrogance of the Arab tribes like about taking so much honor in so many things in position. So, so he said, we've always competing, you had some excellence, we had some excellence, we competed over privileges, you competed over privileges. And we were literally like,

01:01:06 --> 01:01:08

side by side we were even.

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

And just by the moment that we managed to get even with you, now there's a Prophet from among, you know, he literally that's what he said to the Prophet Salah Salem.

01:01:20 --> 01:01:33

When the Prophet also left and Abuja and he said well, Allah He in that and no one know Allah, what I can do normally Hello. He said, Well, Allah He we know he's upon the truth, but we're not gonna we're not gonna give it to them. That was his,

01:01:34 --> 01:01:43

his supremacy. Okay. Yeah. Another question. Let me give the sisters their turn. And then if not, we go back to the bonus questions. Yes, go ahead.

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

Gratitude and or

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


01:01:59 --> 01:02:00


01:02:01 --> 01:02:04

Okay. tested, tested with health issues.

01:02:05 --> 01:02:10

Okay, cool. Very good question. So how can you stay thankful and grateful?

01:02:11 --> 01:02:24

When in difficult times, and difficult times. So there's a rule about human behavior and the prophets, Allah mentioned it in a hadith. He said to have been our best to have of Allah if Allah had efficient.

01:02:26 --> 01:02:30

If you get to give Allah his rights and connect to Allah at times of ease,

01:02:31 --> 01:02:34

you're going to find Allah by your side at times of hardship.

01:02:36 --> 01:02:39

What we do at times of ease consistently,

01:02:41 --> 01:02:51

this is what comes to rescue at difficult times. If we don't build that, at times of ease, it becomes more challenging at times of hardship, f of Allah, you have

01:02:53 --> 01:02:59

observed the rights of Allah We dutiful to Allah. Preserve Allah's rights, Allah will preserve you.

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

When when you when you need that, obviously when you are in need.

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

So that's the first one. That's that's the first rule you need to build enough credit, that when difficult times come you already you have a good budget of inner depth and faith for them because you need faith. Really, you need faith more than anything else to be able and

01:03:25 --> 01:03:36

more than anything else to be able to handle challenges and Subhanallah the verse that we stopped at with that we're going to do with Inshallah, next week, it says Masada me mostly but in the lobby of Manila OMA Yeoman Billa you

01:03:38 --> 01:03:51

there is no calamity that hits except with the permission of Allah and whoever truly believes in Allah, Allah will guide their heart. So build at the time of ease, build so much relationship with Allah subhanaw taala

01:03:53 --> 01:03:58

then that would come to rescue at the time of hardship. Point number one, point number two.

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

Although challenges in life,

01:04:05 --> 01:04:37

they vie for our attention, and they get it as they say the squeaky wheel gets the grease, right. So when something when there is pain, that's what gets your attention. That's what gets your attention to things that go wrong, get your attention. But you have to understand attention. We have a limit, we have a limited scope of attention. That's a limited resource. You can't attend to so many things. They say you attend an average to five things right? Maximum seven, minimum three at a given time, right? That's what they say.

01:04:38 --> 01:04:57

Pretty pretty accurate. I would close I would say yes. You can't put your mind on so many things at once. You have to you have like Slack a gate into your mind into your heart, very small. It's your attention. And in the Arabic language it's called multi factorial. By the way, today, we call it in Tibetan. We call it

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

turkeys all

01:05:00 --> 01:05:08

These are borrowed words, right? That's not how they are referred to attention. lt fat LT federal kalbi.

01:05:09 --> 01:05:16

So you can't put your attention on so many things. So you don't capture everything.

01:05:17 --> 01:05:25

So it's important what you put your attention on actually, or how how you manage your attention is very important.

01:05:27 --> 01:05:34

So when when there is pain, when there is some, any kind of tense, experience,

01:05:35 --> 01:05:51

deep by default our attention goes to it. So you experience the pain, your your mind becomes overwhelmed, preoccupied overwhelmed with the pain, with the struggle with the suffering with the anticipation even which we call worry, anticipation, of trouble of pain, whatever.

01:05:54 --> 01:05:55

It's important to train your attention.

01:05:57 --> 01:06:48

Important to train your attention, you can actually break from that grip. Don't, don't let it be work on its default state, you can actually train it and you can turn to something else. Because whatever hardship or whatever pain there is, there is far greater in our blessings and ease from Allah subhanaw taala. But what gets our attention is, let's say, and even this estimate is exaggerated. If I say 1% Is your trouble, 100% Or sorry, 99% is blessings. Even this 1% is exaggerated. It's way less than that. It's way less than that. The blessing Allah says if you were to try to count the blessings, you won't be able to enumerate them or internal diameter loi, let

01:06:49 --> 01:06:53

most of the blessings of Allah that you enjoy, you literally enjoy.

01:06:54 --> 01:06:57

And they benefit you. You're not aware of them.

01:06:59 --> 01:07:03

You're just not aware of them. So there is a lot. So the

01:07:05 --> 01:07:12

so we should get our attention from the pain from the trouble, we should train. And it's, it's actually a very beautiful exercise.

01:07:14 --> 01:07:19

Focus on something else. And I will tell you, and this is something that I think many.

01:07:21 --> 01:07:41

I think like therapists, that's what they advise people to do. Get busy with something. If you have worry, if you have pain, if you have some, like chronic pain, get busy with something that gets your attention, something that you feel something that you love doing so you forget yourself in it. And you would realize, once you truly engaged with something,

01:07:43 --> 01:08:23

the pain goes, the pain doesn't go, it just goes away away from your awareness. Because the the experience of pain is very subjective. By the way, I'm not saying it's not real, but it's very subjective, and it's manageable. And there are ways there are mechanisms for pain suppression. One of them one of the most successful you'll see people really like getting themselves into very painful experiences, like physically painful experiences, like squeezing their finger or, or a muscle with pliers, as painful as this could be. And they go through training where they can put their attention on something that consumes their attention.

01:08:24 --> 01:08:25

And they won't feel the pain.

01:08:27 --> 01:08:34

momentarily, they won't feel the pain, as soon as as long as their mind is on something that consumes it completely.

01:08:36 --> 01:09:04

And sometimes you'd be in pain and something happens that really gets your attention. Like something catches you off guard momentarily, you forget, you forget the you forget the pain. And we all experienced that. But in a different way. If you have a subtle form of pain, like toothache, or some pain in the back. It's not very acute, right? But it's substantial. During the day, you don't even feel it. You're not aware of it. But it's there.

01:09:05 --> 01:09:08

It's there. When do you feel it when you go to sleep?

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

Because you're not doing anything.

01:09:11 --> 01:09:15

And all of a sudden it becomes unbearable, and it's very annoying.

01:09:16 --> 01:09:23

So what about the data? You say, Oh, this pain only comes at night? It doesn't come at night? Is this you're not aware of it.

01:09:24 --> 01:09:26

Okay, so I'm not suggesting that you can

01:09:27 --> 01:09:51

completely get out of the pain. And I don't suggest that because I think pain is unnecessary. Pain is part of our experience. And it's I don't think it's wise. There is a healthy level of experiencing pain that grounds us in reality. I don't believe in people fooling themselves. There are mechanisms where people can fool themselves to avoid pain. You shouldn't lie to yourself at all. But there are ways you can attend to the truth and attended to the truth by

01:09:52 --> 01:09:59

the more and this this ties in with number one the more you train yourself to see the blessings and appreciate them and really value them

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

You're actually training your attention to take it away from the pain and put it on something else.

01:10:05 --> 01:10:07

And one of the things that

01:10:09 --> 01:10:33

a third, a third advice that I would give, and this is universal, and everyone uses this is to have a proactive approach. You know, one of the most painful experiences we have is when we don't have a say, something happens, and we don't have a say if it exacerbates the pain, especially if it's an unpleasant experience or a painful experience, it makes us feel helpless, and the pain becomes compound.

01:10:35 --> 01:10:44

So one of the things and this is something I remember when I was young, first year in university, I get on the bus and there is this very, very old man.

01:10:47 --> 01:10:55

Christian man from my hometown, very, very old man. And he didn't realize had later on that he was actually a writer, he was an author.

01:10:59 --> 01:11:10

Obviously, young man and not interested in an older man. So he asks, he gets to introduces himself gets to know me, then he says, You know, I want to give you advice. I said, Yeah, he says,

01:11:12 --> 01:11:14

In lemmya Kumar to read for added value icon.

01:11:17 --> 01:11:23

I thought, Okay, that's interesting play on words. But Subhanallah, like, the more

01:11:24 --> 01:11:37

you know, we face in life, the more I see this is was very precious advice. He said, If what you want doesn't materialize doesn't happen, then you should want what happened, what has happened.

01:11:41 --> 01:12:02

And the realized, actually, this is a this is a, this is a way that therapists choose, they call it the you have two approaches to experiences and experiences, including pain, suffering, whatever, you have the approach system, and you have the avoidance system, as long as you're always afraid and trying to avoid something that's inevitable Your pain is exacerbated.

01:12:04 --> 01:12:07

But if you actually face it, head on,

01:12:08 --> 01:12:13

and engage in it, find out find out ways to deal with it.

01:12:15 --> 01:12:29

And you take your attention away from the fear, and you become more proactive in the in the, in the, in the experience, actually, the pain starts to go down just because you have choice, because you decide to choose to face it.

01:12:31 --> 01:13:13

And this works with fear as well, by the way. So these are three things, I hope, I hope they really help. It takes all of this kind of advantage to take some work. And if somebody says, Okay, I'm already in pain, so what should I do, you can still start is still doable? It's still doable, yes, it will be more difficult. But you know, what, when, when tough circumstances come into your life, you know, the hardware today, that's what we talked about. People call opportunities, problems. This is how opportunities come into your life in the in the shape of problems, really. So look at the other side, see what this problem what this inconvenient situation, what this trouble, really is

01:13:13 --> 01:13:19

inviting you to do and change, because there is a door that opens to greater opportunity. So if

01:13:20 --> 01:13:34

and I think it's Marcus Aurelius, who said, Whatever gets on the way, or whatever gets in the way becomes the way. Sometimes you think, Oh, I'm trying to get this but something pops up, like comes into my way. We know what probably that's your way.

01:13:35 --> 01:13:38

It's not what you thought in the beginning. Okay.

01:13:40 --> 01:13:45

Can I take can we take just one question quickly? If it's a quick question, we'll take it. Yes.

01:13:50 --> 01:13:50


01:13:56 --> 01:13:57

Speaking to a Christian

01:13:59 --> 01:14:00

family member

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

with a soft sense,

01:14:05 --> 01:14:08

okay, way in that way to address this kind of supremacy

01:14:11 --> 01:14:57

you should ask people who are, you know, better than me in Dawa? I don't, unfortunately, I don't, I don't get to engage in Dawa. At that in such a personal level. But especially with non Muslims. But I would just speak theory, I can just improvise. Generally speaking. I'm not sure how helpful that is, but I'm sure people on the ground have a better advice to deal with that. But what I would say is, you know, your sincerity might affect them. hearts are in the hands of Allah, but your sincerity, your genuine concern for them might open their hearts, making dua for them if they are family members, lots of this changes and we've, we've seen examples of this happen that sometimes

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

parents have especially happens with you know,

01:15:00 --> 01:15:07

convert their parents after 4050 years become Muslim. Some of them you know, minutes before they die

01:15:08 --> 01:15:10

and they stayed consistent with it.

01:15:13 --> 01:15:39

So what I would say is your sincerity and the more you are in touch with your football and with the truth, the more you maybe you can awaken that in a person. That's what I would just theorize about. But again, I'm sure people who deal with like Dawa and engage with non Muslims they would have a better advice inshallah to Allah. Okay, we'll have to close here and we'll see you in sha Allah next Friday. Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salam managing them from Eduardo early he was Holly Ah, me.
