the

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

I would say the most important point to be in the light

the nursing home. All right, let's move on and NASA will be rewatching Sona Infocomm on Twitter to learn and catch up. After that. They won't college were able Eddie salatu salam, the only one not worried one Khalifa calm era and command

00:02:12--> 00:02:54

sudo a soft Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. This highlights the greatness and dominion of Allah and the submission of all of creation to him. All those who are in the heavens and on earth, glorify and praise Allah, worship Him and ask Him for their needs. For He is the Almighty Who has subjugated all things by His might and power, most wise in his creation and command or you who believe why do you say that which you do not do? That is why do You speak good words urge people to do good and perhaps boast of doing it yourselves, when you do not do it, and you will forbid evil and declare yourselves above doing it, you are contaminated with it and it is part of your regular deeds?

00:02:56--> 00:03:30

Is such a blameworthy attitude befitting for the believers or is it something most loathsome before a long that a person says what he does not do? The one who enjoys good should be the first one to hasten to do it. And the one who forbids evil should be the furthest removed of all people from it. Allah subhanaw taala says elsewhere Do you enjoy and righteousness upon people while you ignore your own selves? Even though you study the Scripture, Will you not then understand and care about Islam said to his people, I do not want to do that which I am forbidding you to do?

00:03:32--> 00:03:42

Okay, so, the salah starts with glorifying Allah subhanaw taala, pretty much similar to sort of Joomla which we took before. And it's about to speed.

00:03:43--> 00:04:27

It's about to speed as usual, which is again, the glorification of Allah, declaring the truth or embracing the truth that recognizing the truth acknowledging it, that he is free from all imperfections from all defects. And he's he's perfect and complete in every sense. To Him belong, everything that's in the heavens and the earth and He is the Almighty, the all wise and then Allah subhanaw taala directly addresses the believers Yeah, you are letting him and only metropolo No matter further, that law addresses them in a direct manner. Or you believe why do you say that what you do not act upon. So the meaning the general meaning is that there should be congruence See, or

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

consistency between speech and action. Because speech and action we speaking here about external actions, outward actions, because Allah is saying we limit Hakuna Matata, you're saying something but you actions do not match your words. That discrepancy? Where does it come from?

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

It comes from a serious disease. So we said previously things are born in the heart. things originate in the heart right the intentions

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

intentions originate in the heart. And then they translate into actions and external actions, internal and external actions. Now, external actions, these are the visible physical actions, and they include the speech. So when you are saying something, but your actions speak or tell a different story, what's going on?

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

You're not being honest.

00:05:25--> 00:05:32

You're not being honest. Why? Because speech is probably the most powerful thing among among the actions of humans.

00:05:33--> 00:05:34

Because Allah

00:05:36--> 00:06:19

gave something special to humans when He taught Adam all of the names and this has to do with the use of language. This has to do with meanings. Words can destroy nations. Words can lead to crimes. A word can revive someone who's dead, sometimes in a sense, right? So words are very powerful. And this is why the Prophet SAW Selim system had we had technological mukaiyama, Eduardo Yakubu Nassif, Allah will do him Illa Hassan was the Prophet SAW Selim system, because my dad asked him, Omar, I don't know the man will jasola Are we going to be held accountable for what we say? The Prophet SAW, Sam says to him, What is going to throw people in the Hellfire more than the outcomes or the

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

consequences of their tongue? What they say, speech is very powerful. Because it's about meaning making, meaning making because with speech, you communicate and with communication, you're affecting the heart.

00:06:33--> 00:06:42

And from the heart, we said, everything you know comes out. So speech is very powerful. And when speech is inconsistent with actions, that means you're lying.

00:06:43--> 00:06:49

You are lying. So this is why the believer the reality of the believer is that their heart

00:06:51--> 00:06:56

and then their speech and their action are all supposed to be consistent, telling the same story

00:06:57--> 00:07:19

telling the same story and description came often from the Companions cannot guru boom cannot booboo s&m mean, how many? Their actions were better than their external actions, the state of the heart was better than their external actions. Now, that doesn't mean their actions were not good. Their actions were superior.

00:07:20--> 00:07:46

But their hearts were it. It's like we're a different story compared to others. And the moment they have you mentioned this often in his book, Colm Ebola, which has the biographies of a lot of the Muslim personalities, you will see later generations, their actions and their speech, external actions and their speech is better than the hearts. It's the opposite of the companions and the tabbing.

00:07:48--> 00:08:04

So, why because in your heart, you can actually want to do a lot of good in your heart, that your speech cannot catch up with it. It's not enough because your speech and your actions cannot catch up with the good in your in your heart. Why? Because

00:08:05--> 00:08:14

what you say what you communicate, and what you do is bound by what space and time it's limited. You can't speak infinitely, you can't

00:08:15--> 00:08:22

possibly say everything. And you can't possibly do all the time, all you want to do because you're limited. You need energy, you need time.

00:08:24--> 00:08:29

And if you engage with one action, that means you're you're disengaging from other actions, right?

00:08:31--> 00:08:35

By default, since this since, for example, since I'm reading,

00:08:36--> 00:08:47

I'm not watching TV, for example, right? Because you can only fit one action in this window of time. So this is why you're limited with your actions, but the heart functions at a different level.

00:08:48--> 00:08:53

You can actually have so much goodwill in your heart, that you

00:08:54--> 00:08:59

that you aren't good for others, for example, but you can't do that. Why? Because you're limited in your resources.

00:09:01--> 00:09:26

You're limited in your knowledge. Right? So this is why, for example, the Hadith of the Prophet SAW. So let me set an example of this so that the messengers on Salam said, Miguel, I mean, c'mon Quran for over a year Obeah de la, Mr. Fabulous. And let me stop that we are directly involved with the provinces. And I'm said, When you see an act of disobedience, evil, change it, seek to change it with your hand physically.

00:09:29--> 00:09:55

Physically here doesn't mean fight. By the way, it just means, you know, whatever action is necessary, like good action, that that's going to bring a better outcome. Engage in it if you can. But if you can't, it's beyond you. Because there is limitation that in that because maybe the situation is not suitable. Maybe you don't have the energy maybe you don't have the power. Maybe you don't have the say, maybe there is risk and there is danger.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

So, so the scope is limited here with X

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

Since you can't do that, at least maybe you don't have power, maybe you can say something.

00:10:05--> 00:10:06

Maybe you can give advice.

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

Or at least say the truth.

00:10:11--> 00:10:21

Right. So there's more scope with speech than without, with action with physical action. But if you can't even speak, because again, you fear for your life,

00:10:22--> 00:10:27

then in your heart, have this kind of rejection of this for this evil.

00:10:29--> 00:10:43

The Prophet said with Erica, for him, this is the weakest of iman. Why? Because in narration that had been similar to him, Allah Allah quotes often, but I don't know exactly where it is, I'll release about the rally came in an email, and you have to have them.

00:10:44--> 00:10:57

If you don't have denial in your heart or rejection in your heart to the evil, then there is no email. There's no email, that's a sign that there's no Amen. Because the heart that has a man that has life, it has a natural sort of

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

dislike, it has a taste that abhors and dislikes and rejects evil. That's a sign of a heart that has emotion in it. So if there is no rejection, then that shows probably there's no email, probably there is no email. And again, this is a general principle, don't apply it to yourself, okay? There are different factors.

00:11:22--> 00:11:56

But the thing is here, the prophets are seldom said yes, you might be excused with action with acting. Because there are external limitations, you might even be but there is more scope with speech. But maybe there is also consequences or repercussions for speech. But in your heart, in your inner world, there is no limitation. So you have to conquer your inner world. As a believer, you might not conquer your external world, because there will be other forces people to have more strength than you. People have more resources, more say than you. It's possible. But your inner world, your heart, you can't lose that battle.

00:11:58--> 00:12:02

You can't lose that battle. Because if you lose that battle, you end up in the hellfire.

00:12:04--> 00:12:23

Because the competition, your enemy inside is Shavon. And Jonas, he uses Jonas. So if you lose the battle, you lose the shaper. That means you go into the alpha, you have no excuse to lose the inner battle. This is why the Prophet SAW said I'm said for because we'll be here then okay rejected with your heart have that rejection in your heart.

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

And that rejection towards evil.

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

But if they're, if your heart does not reject evil, that means what, there's something serious, he lost the inner battle,

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

at least with that specific issue.

00:12:38--> 00:13:00

Or it might be a complete loss. So you can't lose the inner battle. You can't lose it. You You have no excuse to lose it. But the external battle. It is subject to you know, balances of power, resources, influence, risk to your life and things like that the profits sometimes lost.

00:13:01--> 00:13:06

Sometimes they were defeated, the believers were defeated. But to be defeated in your heart, no.

00:13:07--> 00:13:24

No, because no one there's no external forces that get to your heart. They don't get to your heart, they can get to your speak, they can control your speech. They can control your external actions which you can do they can limit you, but with your heart to make you a disbeliever to make you hate the truth.

00:13:26--> 00:13:50

No, there's no excuse for that. And by the way, you can't speak the truth. So the general meaning here of this verse, Allah subhana, Allah says the Matapalo nominative, I don't Why do you say that which you do not do your that you do not act upon. So this specific meaning is that don't preach good, and then do the opposite. don't advise people against evil when committed yourself, you can't do this. This kind of inconsistency is hypocrisy.

00:13:52--> 00:14:12

So that's the specific meaning the general meaning is that there should be consistency between your speech and your action and that shows that it's coming from your heart. But if it's, they are inconsistent. So there's a problem. There is deception. There is deception you lose, you're using language for something to give a false impression.

00:14:14--> 00:14:25

To give false impression, and Allah mentions there are some of the Bedouins who came to the Prophet SAW Allah. Allah Allah Allah boo. Hola me told me, You know what I can call us. What am I good holy.

00:14:26--> 00:14:49

Some of those nomads they came and they were actually some of them were hypocrites. They came in they said, We have believed we are believers. So Allah Subhana Allah tells the prophesy Salam tell them, No, you're not believers yet. Say we are Muslims, meaning we submit, we fulfill the external obligations, we fulfill the obligations right. But Allah says a man has not yet entered or taken root in your hearts.

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

Okay, so they use that to give the impression that we believe or we are believers, but that was inconsistent.

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

That was a lie. It was not the truth of the hearts.

00:15:04--> 00:15:26

But generally speaking, I believer, there should be complete consistency between your heart, your speech, and your action because this is who you are. And your speech and your actions are an expression of your heart. So if they are inconsistent, you're lying in one of them or in both. You're lying, you're not telling the truth. And in order to tell the truth, by the way, you need self knowledge.

00:15:28--> 00:15:33

And there is a rule in Islam in Malaga, Tamala G Bula. Behavior watch.

00:15:34--> 00:15:40

What is necessary for the fulfillment of an obligation also becomes an obligation.

00:15:42--> 00:15:50

What is necessary for the fulfillment of an obligation also becomes an obligation. Like you need to make mobile

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

you need to make mobile

00:15:55--> 00:16:06

going to the washroom and in order to make Salah so you have to make Salah and for Salah you need to do so that's one obligation you have to fulfill, but I don't have a lot and I don't have water here.

00:16:08--> 00:16:14

Where do you find the water in the washroom? Now going to the washroom to make will walk into the washroom becomes an obligation on you.

00:16:15--> 00:16:35

But walk into the washroom is halal, right? There's nothing in it. It has a neutral value in Islam. It's permissible you can do it. But in this specific when it becomes necessary for the fulfillment of an obligation. that specific instance of walking to the washroom in order to make becomes an obligation this walking this journey that you take

00:16:36--> 00:16:49

becomes an obligation. So in order for you to be consistent your speech and your action to be a true reflection of your heart, then you will need to know yourself. You will need to know the forces that shape you insight.

00:16:50--> 00:16:56

Otherwise, you can't be consistent. I'll give you a very common example people will commit to something out of excitement.

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

Yes, I'm going to do this promise promise.

00:17:01--> 00:17:08

Maybe tomorrow I will change you might not I will not change my mind. Then tomorrow comes you don't even show up. You don't even pick up the phone right?

00:17:09--> 00:17:15

Quote they call you in on the the person you're trying to call is not available.

00:17:16--> 00:17:19

Why but yesterday like it was 100%

00:17:22--> 00:17:32

Were you lying? No, you're probably telling the truth in as far as you could, but you did not you know your reality. You don't understand yourself properly.

00:17:34--> 00:17:37

You misunderstood yourself. You thought the excitement was real.

00:17:38--> 00:17:47

But that's because you don't know yourself very well. When you know yourself very well. You can tell the patterns within yourself. You know when you get overexcited overjoyed, and you tend to over commit.

00:17:50--> 00:17:58

So this way, in order to be truthful, truly, you will need to know yourself. You need to know what you're talking about. Because when you commit when you speak

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

when you communicate about who you are, what you are what you're going to do, you're actually telling you about the state of your heart and when you don't know the state of your heart, and you don't know the states and the fluctuations of your heart. Then you're gonna say something and you won't stick to it.

00:18:15--> 00:18:25

And that that board is lying. It borders like and it falls under this. Yeah, you're Latina and unlimited coluna man, I don't know you believe. Why do you say that which you do not act upon.

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

And that's serious.

00:18:29--> 00:18:36

That's Allah subhanaw taala reprimanding people who say when they don't do Oh promise what they do not fulfill.

00:18:37--> 00:19:10

And in Surah Nisa, Allah subhanaw taala talks about some some people who were in the ranks of these of the Muslims the early Muslims element Allah Allah Allah Dnata delanco For idea camaraderie, masala Fela Makati body haemagglutinin or kalila minnow. They will look for the marquetry Bellingham Lakota Hello Paulo from Makati Valley he will pick it as we have shown in NASA kaha Shatila here, the Hershey. McCauley will have been at the market actually Nikita Lola how to Nigeria Julian Kareem call metabo dunya.

00:19:12--> 00:19:18

Didn't you see those who said it was said to them hold off.

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

Why? Because they came to the Prophet sites on him. They said Illuminati lineata feeding in why should we be weak? Why shouldn't we defend ourselves? why don't why should Why should Why don't we initiate some military action to defend ourselves to preemptively preemptive actions, you know military actions. These people have taken our houses they expelled, expelled us out of Metka we should we should fight we shouldn't be weak. We shouldn't be meek. The prophets of Satan told them I was not I was not given permission here. I was not commanded by Allah.

00:19:54--> 00:19:58

They were upset with that they weren't happy with that they thought this was you know, just

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

acting

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

outwardly. So they insist let's do it. Let's do it. Let's go and do something. Let's initiate something.

00:20:06--> 00:20:14

So Allah said to them, all the prophets of salaam said to them, obviously that's divine instruction, call for a day, hold off, there's no fighting. Now,

00:20:15--> 00:20:22

there might be temptation by be strong, right to initiate something. But Allah says, It's not time, so hold off.

00:20:25--> 00:20:47

Time is not right. When the time was right when Allah subhanaw taala instructed the prophets I seldom made the shift. Now, ordinarily Allah the New button only be a non believer in Allah, Allah knows. Now Allah gives permission to the believers because they were oppressed, they were wronged, to take up arms and to engage in warfare. And Allah.

00:20:49--> 00:20:51

Allah is able to give them victory.

00:20:53--> 00:21:00

Now these people who were excited at the beginning, when they were told to join

00:21:02--> 00:21:21

now, they were not happy with it. For them equity by the human content, either free implemented, we have shown a NASA satellite org, I watched the cashier, some of them feared when they were given the instruction to engage these people were fearful of people as much as they fear Allah, or even more.

00:21:23--> 00:21:28

And they said, Oh, Allah, why did you write fightin upon us? Give us a little bit more time.

00:21:29--> 00:21:33

What happened? Why did the Why did the attitude shift?

00:21:34--> 00:21:43

Why did they do it? Again, not knowing where this is coming from their zeal to engage on warfare when it was not the right time? Where was this coming? Not from a good place.

00:21:45--> 00:21:56

Not from a good place, maybe a former place of anger. It was temporary. Maybe it was from a place of pride. That's not the right intention, you should engage for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:21:58--> 00:22:21

So that test that Allah put them through revealed their reality, although it seemed to be like they wanted to do something for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. But the reality of it was not was what it was not for Allah. It was for other personal reasons. And this is why there's a lot of virtuous actions that in reality, in reality, they are not coming from the right place. These are not acts of worship, and these are not good actions.

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

And they might be there might seem to be selfless. There might seem to be devotional, it might seem to be heroic. Yeah. It's the intention.

00:22:33--> 00:22:42

It's the intention. And we don't want the Hadith Subhanallah I thought I was going to give short commentary, but skitter carried away with this fairly shallow.

00:22:44--> 00:22:44

But

00:22:46--> 00:22:48

in the in the battle, I think it was

00:22:49--> 00:23:02

one person in the ranks of the companions wise fighting like no other. The Companions were so impressed with them. They told the prophets I sounded like no one thought like him today. The prophets of salaam shed said, show him to me.

00:23:04--> 00:23:08

So they pointed at him. And the prophets also said who often not he's in the hellfire.

00:23:09--> 00:23:29

Companion companions were puzzled like, what? Like he's destroying the people of Quraysh. He's in the hellfire, the person who was not. So one of the companions said, I shall follow him for the rest of the day. He followed him, and the man was fighting fiercely. But then he was wounded, a fatal wound, but it was taking him long.

00:23:31--> 00:23:35

He was in pain. So what does he do? He flips his sword.

00:23:36--> 00:23:47

He puts the handle on the ground, the tip of the soul of the sword right on his chest. Then he throws himself on, he leans on the sword to kill himself.

00:23:49--> 00:23:55

The companion comes back to the presence this is a shadow Nicola. So I bear witness You are the messenger of Allah.

00:23:56--> 00:24:34

So that seems to be one of the greatest acts of worship, so devotional, offering his life in this. Yeah, the intention. So don't be deluded. Many people deceive themselves by means of this, they get a right cause a great cause, and they join it and they join the ranks and they're very active, and they think, oh, that must be for the sake of Allah. If you don't know what's, what are the inner workings of your heart, you're not aware of them. You haven't developed that clarity, that inner clarity. You can't tell. You literally can't tell. This is why it's very, very important. Really, to get to know your heart. You can't know the intention properly. intention, intention is one of the

00:24:34--> 00:24:38

main forces in the heart. How do you know where it came from?

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

You can't leave your heart to be like this black box that you know nothing about. You have to go into it. You have to familiarize yourself with that inner workings of your heart so that you know you can watch yourself you can hold yourself accountable. And you can tell when there is something wrong going on there. Even when it looks outside. So beautiful and devotion

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

Okay let's move on

00:25:02--> 00:25:35

all the moms out there how not to add or how to believe in a shutdown regime in the law your head will let you know you're caught you don't have visibility he's often got pneumonia animals how the heck don't mean Allah He did he bad he alleged you had if he said he was the only one the homecare for us not only know him very long, and he also fulfilled jihad is often Mortara son matassa may not Minami the holiday Naoko for Su water coolers, for whom other nearby main water TV can be sold MUSAWAH to banal Mujahideen what I'll do at hobbled I do but then she'll probably him Baba when he has a cannon abuse Allah Allahu alayhi wa Salam is a handle on Peter so fast harbor what a Tibetan

00:25:35--> 00:25:36

Fimo apathy him

00:25:38--> 00:25:48

behavioral layer sort of DeCarlo Rahim Allah blackbelts Hakuna kulala effeminate Mata Mata and be Marchesi ha will call me by email and we will be Fenty, here will be head to head Puri, Hatha T. mula man who is.

00:25:51--> 00:26:31

Here Allah is urging his slaves to strive in his cause and teaching them how to arrange their ranks, they should stand in tightly fitted solid ranks in jihad, without any gaps in the roles and their roles should be organized in an orderly fashion, so that the Mujahideen may stand side by side and shoulder to shoulder striking dread into the hearts of the enemy and offering encouragement to one another. Hence, when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was present in battle, he would organize the ranks of his companions, stationing them for battle in such a way that some would not have to rely on others. Rather, each group would focus on his own position, doing whatever was needed to

00:26:31--> 00:26:34

protect their station in this manner, goals could be achieved.

00:26:37--> 00:26:44

Okay, so this is a description of the manner of engaging in warfare. And again, we live at times

00:26:45--> 00:26:52

when something that's part of the psychological warfare and I would say it's a big scale

00:26:58--> 00:26:59

it's

00:27:00--> 00:27:12

it's, it's a big scale, kind of gaslighting of the Muslims, make the Muslims doubt themselves, doubt their religion, doubt they're right, that is granted to everyone else.

00:27:13--> 00:27:22

Look at all nations or countries throughout history, they had the right to have forced to defend themselves and defend the weak and defend their cause. Right.

00:27:24--> 00:27:26

And you wait, why do you think for example,

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

you know, different nations, like USA has military bases in almost every sport in the world.

00:27:35--> 00:27:52

What defense you're in most countries, you are in most countries, and you're getting into their politics, into their public policy into everything. And you're putting a lot of pressure on on all of these populations. Is this even self defense?

00:27:54--> 00:27:57

As if Okay, that's fine. That's, that's legal, and that's okay.

00:27:59--> 00:28:19

But, you know, Muslims got gaslighted, when it when it came to a very important part of Islam, which is jihad. And the name itself now became like a taboo, you can even say it. And then there were, the game was played very well, because a lot of naive Muslims, enthusiastic youth were taken for a ride.

00:28:20--> 00:28:24

They were taken because they didn't listen to the Muslim scholars.

00:28:25--> 00:28:32

To the proper Muslim scholars, they were taken to areas where there is no the conditions of jihad were not available. A lot of these were setups.

00:28:34--> 00:28:59

A lot of these were setups by, again, very dodgy dubious agencies behind them. A Muslim and a Muslim should not be someone gullible to fall into something like this. So this is why you have scholars and you should follow the guidance of the scholars, but these youth in their enthusiasm again, they caused a lot of damage. And they gave what seems to be like a proof that this is terrorism.

00:29:01--> 00:29:02

And they give a bad name.

00:29:03--> 00:29:07

And what did this do they put this put the Muslims on the on the defensive all the time.

00:29:09--> 00:29:20

On it, everyone has the right to defend themselves, but Muslims can't because the moment you even think of defending yourself, you know, there is the label of terrorism waiting for you. And that's a way to control you

00:29:24--> 00:29:38

know, again, jihad in Islam has has proper jurisprudence. It's not what you see from all of these, you know, military organizations that claimed you had to themselves a lot of these don't know Jihad have nothing to do with jihad.

00:29:42--> 00:29:44

So again, it created such a huge mess.

00:29:45--> 00:29:52

These people were killing innocent people. They were killing women, children in the name of Islam. This is the opposite of jihad.

00:29:54--> 00:29:55

This is the opposite of jihad.

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

So, so again, somehow

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

a lot. It's it even became hard to talk about these things. But you know, In Islam there is the you will never find a system that is more humane than this system that you will find in Islam. Whereas other nations, you'll find most of the dominant nations in the world today. They have committed atrocities wherever they went. They have killed innocent people, they have wiped out cultures.

00:30:22--> 00:30:39

They have wiped out villages, towns, and they've killed innocent people. And they still do that. And they engage in warfare, and they have a lot of these mercenaries around the world. And they're wreaking havoc on this earth.

00:30:40--> 00:30:41

And there's nothing wrong with that.

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

That's professionalism.

00:30:46--> 00:30:46

So again,

00:30:48--> 00:31:05

all of these there are there are big, there's big agenda behind behind all of this. And sometimes when Muslims are gullible and naive, they perpetuate that and they fuel that. And they make things worse. This is why a Muslim should always act based on the advice of the scholars.

00:31:07--> 00:31:21

The scholars were warning against all of these groups that call themselves jihadi whatever, they advise them, to engage with them, to advise them to give them the right understanding. And then they call these scholars, traitors bootlickers whatever.

00:31:24--> 00:31:29

And the Muslim ummah paid for that and still more innocent people get killed, and so on and so forth.

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

00:33:12--> 00:33:51

And remember when Musa said to his people, rebuking them for their misdeeds and telling him off for causing him grief when they knew that he was the Messenger of Allah, all my people, why do you cause me grief in word and deed when you know that I am the messenger of Allah to you, among the rights of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam our respect and veneration compliance with his commands and acceptance of his rulings, as for causing grief to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whose kindness towards people surpasses all kindness, except that of Allah. It is extremely rude and insulin, and it is a deviation from the straight path which they recognize but abandon, hence Allah

00:33:51--> 00:33:56

says, so when they chose to deviate from the truth that is, they deliberately went astray.

00:33:57--> 00:34:37

Allah cause their hearts to deviate from right guidance as a punishment to them for the deviation that they chose for themselves, and were pleased with hence Allah did not enable them to be guided because goodness was not appropriate for them, and they were fit only for evil. For Allah does not guide disobedient people that is those in whom obedience is in those in whom disobedience is inherent, and they have no desire to be guided. This verse shows us that if Allah allows his slaves to go astray, this is not injustice on his part, and they cannot use that as an argument against him. Rather, it is their own fault, for they are the ones who closed the door of guidance to

00:34:37--> 00:34:59

themselves after they came to know of it. So Allah requites them of after that by causing them to go astray and deviate, which they have no way to ward off and the turning of their hearts away from the truth is a punishment for them and divine just divine justice towards them. As Allah subhanaw taala says elsewhere, we will turn their hearts and eyes away from the

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

Truth since they refuse to believe in it the first time and we will leave them to wander blindly in their misguidance. So briefly on this Allah subhanaw taala speaks about Musa alayhis salaam with his people and how they responded gave him a very ugly response. And the rule here if Allah Mirza who as of Allahu Allah bomb, that when they turned away from the truth, Allah let them go on this path and he increased them in their misguidance and Allah does not misguide those who deserve guidance, those who choose guidance, Allah does not miss guide. So again, there's no injustice Iman increases your guidance, you do good it increases you and good will Edina

00:35:39--> 00:36:03

and those who have followed the guidance, Allah increase them in guidance here Allah says when they turned away from guidance, Allah increase the more on this path. So again, humans in the sense they have choice, and that's the ultimate choice that humans have. And this is why we should be we should be wary of sins, you fall in sin, you become more vulnerable to more sense you lose you part of your iman.

00:36:05--> 00:36:08

So you can't get away with sin.

00:36:10--> 00:36:13

The punishment of the sin is embedded in this in itself.

00:36:14--> 00:36:23

It's not something external there is external but it comes as a consequence, but the sin itself is the punishment. You can't punish yourself with anything worse than sin.

00:36:25--> 00:36:27

So don't think you you're getting an advantage with sin.

00:36:30--> 00:36:37

You're shooting yourself in the foot with every cent the dissent the punishment of dissent is embedded in itself that's divine justice.

00:36:38--> 00:36:44

Well, if he from that ACARA stopping.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

Here Allah subhanaw taala speaks of the stubbornness of the children of Israel mentioned above when you face it

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

Odium call them saying oh children of Israel Verily I am the messenger of Allah to you. That is Allah has sent me to call you to goodness and forbid to you evil and he has supported me with clear proof. What come what confirms my truthfulness is the fact that I am confirming what came before me of the Torah. That is, I have come to you with the same message as that brought by Musa of the Torah and divine laws. If I were a pretender to prophethood, I would have brought something other than that which the messenger has brought. I also confirmed that which came before me of the Torah, for it foretold my coming and gave the glad tidings there have.

00:40:37--> 00:41:17

I have come and have been sent in confirmation of it, and bringing glad tidings of a messenger to come after Me, whose name will be armored. He is Muhammad ibn Abdullah Ibn Abdul Muttalib sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the hashemy Prophet, or ISA Ali Salam, like other prophets confirmed the prophet who came before him and gave glad tidings of the Prophet to come after him. Unlike the liars, who contradict the prophets in an extreme manner, and differ from them in attitude, manners, commands and prohibitions, but when he namely Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was coming was foretold by Arisa Ali Salam came to them with clear signs that is clear proof that indicated that he was the one

00:41:17--> 00:41:57

and that he was a true Messenger of Allah, they said stubbornly rejecting the truth and disbelieving in it. This is obviously magic. And this is something very strange indeed, to regard the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam, whose messenger whose message was as clear as day as a magician, who was obviously practicing magic, can there be any failure greater than this? Is there any fabrication worse than this when one denies what is well established of his message and attributes to him something from which he is the furthest removed of all people who does greater wrong than he who fabricates lies against Allah by making this and and other claims, when in fact, he has no excuse

00:41:57--> 00:42:37

and no reason for doing so? Because he is called to Islam and his proof and evidence have been presented to him. And Allah does not guide people who are given to wrongdoing, who persist in the wrongdoing and no exploitation, proof or evidence deters them from it. This is especially applicable to those to these wrongdoers who are striving hard to oppose the truth and and refute it and to support falsehood. Hence, Allah says of them. They want to extinguish Allah's light with their utterances, that is what with what they say, of corrupt arguments, on the basis of which they reject the truth when this argument has no solid foundation, rather, their arguments increase the one who

00:42:37--> 00:43:15

has insight and awareness of the falsehood to which they adhere. But Allah will perfect Allah will perfect his light even though the disbelievers hate the hated. That is Allah has guaranteed to support his religion and perfect the truth with which he sent his messengers and to cause his light to shine in all regions, even if the disbelievers hate it. And because of their hatred, they take all measures that they think will help them to extinguish the light of Allah, but they are they will be defeated. They are like someone who tries to blow on the disk of the Sun in order to extinguish it. They will never achieve that what they want and their minds will never be saved from criticism

00:43:15--> 00:43:36

What do you mostly mean and

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

then Allah mentions that then Allah mentions the means by which the Islamic religion will prevail.

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

both physical measures and rational arguments. As he says it is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, that is with beneficial knowledge and righteous deeds. That is knowledge with which he guides people to Allah and to paradise and He guides to the best deeds and attitude and attitude. And to that which is in people's best interests in this world and the Hereafter, and the religion of truth that is a religion to which to adhere and worship the Lord of the Worlds in accordance with His teachings. A religion that is true in which there are no imperfections or flaws. Rather, its commands offer nourishment, nourishment to hearts and souls and

00:45:38--> 00:46:18

physical well being to bodies, and refraining from what it forbids offer protection offers protection from evil and corruption. What the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent with of guidance and the religion of Truth is the greatest proof and evidence of his truthfulness. And it has proved that will last until the end of time, the more a person reflects upon it, the more you will feel at ease and increase in joy and insight, so that he may cause it to prevail over all other religions. That is, so that he may cause it to prevail over all other religions, on the basis of proof and evidence, and so that he may cause its people who adhere to it to prevail by means of the

00:46:18--> 00:46:59

sword and spear. With regard to the religion itself, this Providence is persistent at all times, no one tries to resist it or oppose it, but he will be defeated. And Islam will prevail and subdue its opponents. As for those who follow the religion of Islam, if they adhere to it and follow its light and guidance in all their religious and worldly affairs, then by the same token, no one will be able to resist them, and they will inevitably prevail over the followers of other religions. But if they neglected at our content merely to claim to belong to it, that will not benefit them, and their negligence towards it will become the cause of their enemies gaining power over them. Anyone who

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

studies the affairs of the Muslims, and their earlier and later generations will be well aware of that.

00:47:05--> 00:47:45

Okay, so, again, I think this it's clear about the followers of Musa and Islam, the followers of ACL Islam are the people that they were sent to who did not respond to them positively. Allah subhana, Allah clearly says that these people, they just the response was one of the worst to the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala. But we can connect this to yada yada, Dena, Amadori, methaqualone, Amanda to follow, and you will find with these people, that usually they would come and claim the truth to themselves, and devotion to themselves. Right, that they that they love Allah, they worship Allah, or they are the best of all people. But their lifestyle, their action just tells a different story.

00:47:46--> 00:48:10

So they're inconsistent. This is where you will find hypocrisy among them very common, actually, it's the norm. It's the norm. This is why there's a lot of emphasis on social etiquette, there's a lot of emphasis on cosmetic morality, which is just looks beautiful outside, but there's no substance, no substitute substance to it. It's more pragmatic, social pragmatism rather than anything else rather than real, genuine morality.

00:48:11--> 00:48:14

And what you would find Muslims once they start

00:48:16--> 00:48:36

falling short in adhering to their religion that would fall in the same, exactly the same patterns, exactly the same patterns. And why because these are the people that they were invited to the truth. But they did not respond. Either. They didn't respond at all, or they responded. On the in part.

00:48:38--> 00:48:59

Allah says, there's no one who is more in wrong than such people. Because that's the color of your nature. That's the color your football is the very natural religion, you are designed to recognize, and no one follow the truth. So when the truth is presented to you, and you don't, this is not an innocent position at all. And this is something we Muslims need to understand this because we've been brainwashed.

00:49:01--> 00:49:30

We've accepted the modern narrative, thinking, oh, there are like it's intellectual debate. No, it's not intellectual debate. The Islam connects with you at a level that is way deeper than your academic knowledge. It speaks to your very nature and to say no to Islam is such a big thing. When you're not when you know the truth of Islam, not when you read. You know what all of these liars about Islam say and right. No, but when you know the truth when you know Islam, the truth of Islam,

00:49:31--> 00:49:34

your human nature goes for it.

00:49:35--> 00:49:49

So you have to go against your nature. It's such a big feat really to stop yourself from Islam when you see it. That's the reality of it. So Allah says, Woman of Islam, who is more in rows more in oppression than someone who does something like this

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

Yeah, then Allah says that Allah the reason he sent his religion or

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

obviously is to guide people but establish it upon all. And Allah says what will John heck was called Babel. When truth comes, falsehood dissipates. That's the nature of it.

00:50:11--> 00:50:53

You know falsehood has no chances with the truth. It cannot stand in the face of truth. But why does it do so in our experience in our life, that's because we are not embracing the truth. The truth needs to be embodied. It needs to be carried by people who adhere to it fully. You might say, Oh, but there's a lot of religious people and we need to this is one misunderstanding we need to remove. A lot of most of the religious people are no different than those who are not religious. Most of the religiosity is in the, in the visible aspects. But the the reality of Islam, the main body in Islam, is actually in the heart is really in the heart. So this is why it's actually very easy to wear the

00:50:53--> 00:50:58

clothing of Islam outside when your heart is corrupt, very easy. It's actually very attractive.

00:50:59--> 00:51:09

It's very attractive because people start to treat you differently. Thinking assuming that that facade really reflects what's in your heart. And it takes no time.

00:51:11--> 00:51:15

You can become Mowlana the share in a week

00:51:16--> 00:51:18

or in as as quick as your bed can grow.

00:51:20--> 00:51:31

Really, honestly, just put the clothing of religiosity and just be there available at the masjid at the locality. And you know, people are going to start approaching you for fatwa

00:51:34--> 00:52:16

that shows how far we are from Islam. How far from we are from Islam. Even if I'm over any further ham, hello to Anna. He used to teach his students as he grew older he would he would get like pins and needles, right so he would extend his feet. He would sit and just extend his feet, sitting comfortably among his students very familiar. But there he says, One day a man with a beautiful big beard, an older man with a beautiful big beard, walks in and sits joins the Halacha Abu Hanifa likes he's so much like maturity in the face of this man. And he sort of pulls his leg and sits properly.

00:52:17--> 00:52:21

And he thinks this is like one of the big scholars probably visiting

00:52:22--> 00:52:24

Kufa or Baghdad.

00:52:26--> 00:52:43

But then the question and q&a time came so the man asks a question, and the question makes no sense. So Abu Hanifa says Anneli, Abu Hanifa andiamo de cada Mao, he says Stanford Hanifa to extend this leg comfortably, right? He got the wrong impression.

00:52:45--> 00:52:46

I remember I was in the UK,

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

visiting, there's a small small city in not far from Manchester and it's called Nilsen.

00:52:55--> 00:53:24

So I go and visit and I was having a very nice speech. And I was again, sort of feeling carried away is, you know, speaking my mind and everything. And then there is I noticed at the back, there was this older guy, he exactly looks Subhanallah an older guy. He looks as a copy of Shehab nothing mean, I'm a lotta real copy. Honestly, like, when I noticed him, I became way more reserved, way, way more reserved. I watched every word I said.

00:53:25--> 00:53:41

And but then, like, they served dinner afterwards, and I spoke with him. And he was such a simple, humble guy he had, like, he had literally no level of knowledge whatsoever. But Subhan Allah, Allah gave him like this beautiful face. And I said, Okay.

00:53:43--> 00:54:04

Okay, I was reserved for no good reason, but hamdulillah Harish Allah, so it's easy actually, to put on this facade of religiosity. So keep this in mind, not everybody. And that's not to look down upon religious people by race and people who are striving and that's the best they know. And some people use it. Some people use it for social gain, and for as a as a power tactic.

00:54:05--> 00:54:07

So again, you can't just generalize.

00:54:09--> 00:54:14

There's, they're not the same. They're not religious people who look religious. They're not all the same.

00:54:19--> 00:54:27

Yeah, but so the thing is, to become religious and to grow into that level of devotion, it really takes time, it takes a lot of work.

00:54:28--> 00:54:46

It takes a lot of work. So that's very important to keep in mind and this is when you get to a higher level of devotion. Then this is when your heart your speech and your action becomes consistent. This is why you will find, you know, all of these slandered not slandered all of these.

00:54:47--> 00:54:52

What do you call them, scandals, scandals being revealed about how these people treated whatever.

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

Like how they treated children, how they treated the nuns, how they treated females how they treated their population.

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

their congregation, how they treated you know, the boarding schools, how they

00:55:05--> 00:55:19

treated, you know the First Nation and so on and so forth. That's hypocrisy claiming to be the best and the most righteous and the ones that love Allah and for peace and all of that stuff but again, their their actions speak a different story.

00:55:20--> 00:55:37

Okay believers should never fall in this so Allah broke the truth the truth is powerful and is going to dominate but when this the truth become less visible and very hard to recognize when the people who uphold it don't uphold it properly

00:55:40--> 00:55:41

that's when the confusion comes in.

00:55:43--> 00:56:12

And that's why in our we are responsible for some for some don't think when you as a Muslim you don't really do your best to be the true Muslim and not focus so much on external things exclusively on external things, but really try to grow from within be true, be a true embodiment of the Quran and again, this is such a powerful path to take and it's not easy it's not easy and it's not you can't do it overnight it's going to take up it takes a lifetime

00:56:13--> 00:56:21

so when when when we choose not to do this and say I just want to live a normal life I'm just a normal guy. Right?

00:56:23--> 00:56:27

That's just the truth has lost someone to uphold it.

00:56:32--> 00:56:44

Yeah, so might say Oh, I'm just one individual Well, collectively, this is one individual that's one individual that's when when you put them together that's that's how things you know, that's how social phenomena really shapes but everyone's saying oh, I'm just one person.

00:56:45--> 00:56:50

Start with yourself. And you don't know the ripple effect that there's going to come out of this

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

okay.

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

So then the solar shifts and I think in sha Allah maybe

01:01:21--> 01:02:03

This passage this passage presents advice and guidelines from the Most Merciful of those who show mercy to his believing slaves, pointing out the greatest deal and most sublime objective by means of which one may attain salvation from the painful punishment and attain eternal bliss. Here he mentioned the means of achieving that that aim and goal which everyone who has insight will want to achieve. It is as if the question were asked what is this deal and he said Believe in Allah and His messenger. It is well known that perfect faith is to believe with certainty in what Allah has commanded us to believe in with which requires physical actions, one of the most sublime of which is

01:02:03--> 01:02:38

jihad in Allah's calls. Hence, Allah says and strive and fight offering your wealth and your lives and the cause of Allah by offering your lives and your souls to resist the enemies of Islam. The aim should be to support the religion of Allah and make his word supreme, and spend whatever you can afford of your wealth for that purpose for even though it is difficult for people to give that wealth doing so it is better for you, if only you knew. For in worldly terms, it leads to good consequences, namely victory over the enemy. Honor that is the opposite of humiliation, abundant provision and great reassurance.

01:02:39--> 01:03:17

In the hereafter it leads to attaining the reward of Allah and salvation from his punishment. Hence, Allah mentions the reward in the hereafter seeing if you do that he will forgive you your sins just include both minor and major sins, believe in Allah and jihad in his cause expiate sins, even if they are major, just one second. So pay attention to what's coming up. Now, the description here simple description in general, but it should awaken something in your heart. It should awaken something in your heart and that's when you again when the believer is consistent, when their heart their speech and their actions are consistent and are have one ultimate goal and that's Allah

01:03:17--> 01:03:23

subhanaw taala. That's the reward that Allah prepares for the believers. So listen carefully

01:03:25--> 01:04:04

and admit you two gardens through which rivers flow that is the rivers flow between the dwellings, palaces, chambers and trees, rivers, a freshwater rivers a milk of which the taste does not change, rivers of wine delicious to the drinkers and rivers of pure honey. And in those gardens they will have all kinds of fruit, and find dwellings and gardens of perpetual abode. That is, they combine all good features such as being lofty, high, well built, and beautifully adorned to the extent that the people of Paradise will see the people of the chambers in the highest level they're off, as if they were looking at bright stars on the eastern or western horizon. Some of the buildings of

01:04:04--> 01:04:44

Paradise will be made of bricks of gold, and some of some will be made of bricks of silver, is pavilions will be made of pearls and coral, and some of its dwellings will be made of emerald and colorful, colorful gems, with the with the most beautiful hues, because of their purity, the outside will be visible from the inside, and the inside will be visible from the outside. It will contain such delightful fragrances and beauty that no one could ever describe. And that has never crossed the mind of anyone in any realm. They will not be able to know it until they see it they will enjoy its beauty and their eyes will delight in in it. In that situation where it not for the fact that

01:04:44--> 01:04:59

Allah will create the people of paradise in the most perfect manner that is not subject to death, they might have died out of joy. Glory be to the one whom no one can praise sufficiently. Rather he he is as he has praised himself.

01:05:00--> 01:05:43

Far above the praise that his slaves could give him, bless be the most majestic, the most beautiful Who has created the abode of bliss and placed in its such majesty and beauty that dazzles the minds of his creation. exalted be the one who possesses perfect wisdom that dictates that if Allah had shown paradise to human kind before, to humankind when he created it, and they had seen what it contains of delights, no one would ever fail to seek it. And they would not have enjoyed life in this world that is full of troubles, and whose joy is mixed with pain and its happiness is mixed with sadness. Paradise is called guardians of perpetual abode because it says people will remain in

01:05:43--> 01:05:53

it forever and will never leave it or desire to leave it. This immense and beautiful reward and supreme triumph that is completely unmatched is the reward of the Hereafter.

01:05:57--> 01:05:58

When it's not really

01:05:59--> 01:06:03

up to the pharmacy, on the clock,

01:06:04--> 01:06:23

01:06:25--> 01:06:31

01:06:32--> 01:06:46

The Harbinger I'm sure it's the translation is the Harbinger which is heavy, and Ottawa elaborate if anyone can pull it let me know give me the exact title I would definitely recommend you download it and read everyday read a little bit in it.

01:06:48--> 01:06:51

It's especially when you get into the main part of the book.

01:06:52--> 01:06:55

It's going to just change your perspective about so many things.

01:06:56--> 01:06:59

Okay, I said if anyone can pull it towards the end let us know

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

the harbinger of the soul to sound to the land of Bliss or something like this Okay, well I'm Mithila wood dunya we had at Jollof or they cut off we'll be hopefully he will fly to buena we can pass a lot on okra to hipbone our here NASPO min hola hola como

Allah He would write it in he and Tsukuba, Allah Who commanded Solomon Kubla Khan, we will he'll come out there I do we come to Him at what hamdulillah

01:09:17--> 01:09:54

as for the reward of this deal in this world, it is mentioned in the words and he will give it and he will give you something else that you love. That is you will attain another benefit that you love, which is help from Allah against your enemies that will lead you that will lead to honor and joy an imminent victory, by means of which the territory of Islam will be expanded and abundant provision will be brought. This is the reward of the believers who strive in jihad. As for the believers who do not strive in jihad, when others do Allah subhanaw taala does not let them despair of His grace and kindness. Rather, he says and give these glad tidings to the believers that is

01:09:54--> 01:09:59

given them glad tidings of reward in this world and the Hereafter, each according to his faith.

01:10:00--> 01:10:39

Even if they are not going to attain the level of those who strive in Jihad and Allah's Cause, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in paradise there are 100 levels, the distance between each two of which is like the distance between heaven and earth. Allah has prepared them for those who strive in his cause. Then Allah says, all you who believe be steadfast supporters of Allah's Cause, that is in word and deed by upholding the religion of Allah striving to apply it to oneself and others striving and jihad against those who stubbornly oppose it and resist it, offering your lives and your wealth and refuting the arguments of anyone who supports falsehood with what he

01:10:39--> 01:10:44

claims to have of knowledge and establishing proof against him and warning people against him.

01:10:45--> 01:11:21

Part of supporting the religion of Allah is learning the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His messenger. So Allah already was alone, urging others to do likewise in joining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, then Allah encourages the believers to follow the example of the righteous who came before them. As he says, as Teresa, Santa Maria said to the disciples, who will be my supporters and Allah's Cause, that is, he said to them, making a request of them and encouraging them, who will help me and stand with me in support of the religion of Allah, following the path that I follow the disciples Hastin to respond and said, We are the supporters of Allah's Cause,

01:11:21--> 01:12:00

sorry, Sally Sudan persisted in the path as commanded by Allah and supported his religion along with the disciples who were with him. So some of the children of Israel believed in response to the choleric Sally Salaam and the disciples, and some of them disbelieved, and did not respond to the call. So the believers strove against the disbelievers, then we help those who believed against their enemies, that is, we supported them and granted them victory over them. So they prevailed over them and subdued them. So you are so you, OMA of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam should be the supporters of Allah's Cause and colors to his religion, if you do that Allah will support you as he

01:12:00--> 01:12:05

supported those who came before you, and will cause you to prevail over your enemies.

01:12:06--> 01:12:09

Okay, so Allah subhanaw taala gives us the analogy of

01:12:10--> 01:12:25

this kind of deal in this life as a as a as business. That's an analogy. It's an analogy, and it will look malattie Java, this is to Java business. And why because the payoff is greater than the investment.

01:12:28--> 01:13:07

No matter how big the investment seems to be in this life, the reward is far greater. At the local managers out into GQ magazine and intermino nebula He will surely you believe in Allah and His Messenger belief includes a man includes what adherence devotion, for commitment to Allah subhanaw taala, fulfilling the purpose of your creation, to worship Allah subhanaw taala to bring about the truth and justice because what's the worship of Allah, establishing the truth, bringing about the truth in yourself and around you bringing about the know what's goodness, been benevolence, bringing that and establishing it on earth. Because a lot of the claims to be goodness today and to virtue of

01:13:07--> 01:13:31

fake or fake a lot of this stuff. There's, it's all like, coating the evil with a very thin layer of this pleasant things, things of pleasant nature. That's the morality of the world today. That's the morality of the world order today. That's it. It all looks beautiful, but underneath it's pernicious, evil, destructive. It's the worship of shape on

01:13:33--> 01:14:17

Yeah, and it says freedom but it's not, you know, it's not freedom. It's freedom as long as you do what they allow you to do. But when when you do the things they're not happy with, they have their own way to ostracize you to label you to quarantine you, right, and all of that stuff. So, and life, the events of life will test all of these claims and they are falling, you know, falling apart one after the other, and they will continue. So there's no truth without Allah. And without the guidance of Allah, there's no goodness. And this This is something we Muslims fell into. We thought oh, the modern civilization brings about old good old beauty or justice. Now that was all a game.

01:14:18--> 01:14:22

That was all a game it brought. It brings dominance and they call it today soft power.

01:14:24--> 01:14:32

What is Soft power is just it's it's, it's beautified. It's sugar coated. But inside it's rotten to the core.

01:14:34--> 01:14:45

And you only get to know it once you become part once you really engage in it properly. Then you start to see it for what it what it really is and oftentimes that will be too late.

01:14:46--> 01:14:59

So Allah there's no goodness without Allah. Without the guidance of Allah, there's no matter of technology or intelligence is going to bring goodness and a lot of Muslims believe in the modern project more than they believe in Allah.

01:15:00--> 01:15:06

They trust the more than project more than they trust Allah. Truly a lot of Muslims, that's the reality.

01:15:08--> 01:15:19

The least this is the story that their life tells their actions. That's the story that their, their actions tell. And we believe in a lot of these, like, a lot of the conclusions that you will find in academia.

01:15:20--> 01:15:42

A lot of the ideologies that are found in academia, when they are not science, they're an interpretation of scientific facts. But we, we just embrace them as the ultimate truth. And we say, look at this broad this broad that it helped this and that, but you don't know that a lot of the data around is manipulated. A lot of that stuff is manipulated. And there's in many areas, a lot of that is coming up

01:15:44--> 01:16:04

in economics, in the in the world economy. Now, this is actually actually exacerbated a lot of numbers and graphs and data is manipulated in science. There has been scandals there. They're popping up now for for decades and decades, and for decades, that there has been a lot of manipulation.

01:16:06--> 01:16:14

But we believe in it as the ultimate god. And we worship and we feed it to our kids that this is what you need to do with your life. And we emphasize it more than we emphasize a lot.

01:16:18--> 01:16:21

We paying the price and we think this has no connection to what's happening in the world.

01:16:23--> 01:16:32

It's their jihad, they're doing jihad, and how do they do their jihad with lying with deception, with power, with politics, with the manipulation with all of that stuff.

01:16:34--> 01:16:43

And we are so gullible and naive that we even don't see it for what it is, we fall for it, and we feel inferior to it, and we run behind their tails.

01:16:46--> 01:16:51

So no wonder that the whole world is suffering. There's a lot of injustice, there's a lot of poverty, there's a lot of people struggling.

01:16:53--> 01:17:00

Humanity will not find peace and tranquility and, and justice without the guidance of its creator.

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

No way it's impossible. It's impossible.

01:17:06--> 01:17:50

So Allah subhanaw taala calls it a business transaction, you're actually engaging in business. And if you do it right, the payoff is great. The payoff is great. Then Allah gives us an example of since he mentioned, the followers of Musa and Isa on Instagram, he mentioned the good side, the true disciples who follow Jesus, Mercy Hollis lamb Jesus, or use some sort of Mary followed him and adhere to the truth. And eventually they're their followers, their disciples were, were persecuted and they were killed. The worship Allah alone and then the emergent distortions of the message of Jesus Lea Salam obviously became dominant was politically adopted by the Roman Empire. And it

01:17:50--> 01:17:53

persecuted all of the true followers of Jesus and He Himself.

01:17:54--> 01:18:16

So Allah mentions the example of those people who really strove for the truth for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala they are the followers of Jesus alayhis salaam, we believe that there is one religion, there were Muslims, the followers of Musa Ali's, to them were Muslims, and so on and so forth. Okay, so I think Shala some good points and beautiful points in the Surah that we can benefit from but anyone pulled the name of the book

01:18:19--> 01:18:25

driving to driving the souls to the abode of happiness.

01:18:28--> 01:18:42

Paradise, okay, but there is there's another document online available that's called description of Jannah. By time it's not the book, it's a shorter description, but try to get this book it's available. I think the cover is a little bit.

01:18:44--> 01:18:47

Pinky, Pinky. That's

01:18:48--> 01:19:07

what is it called? Driving the source to the war to happiness, driving the souls to the abode to abode of happiness or to the abodes of happiness. Please download it and read five pages every day. I'm telling you, it's gonna make a big difference being the light Allah. So Allah Azza Messina was a big man
