Surah to feel Bismillah R Rahman Al Rahim.

00:02:18--> 00:03:02

That is Have you not seen the might and power of Allah, His mercy towards his slaves, and the evidence for his oneness and the truthfulness of his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, namely the way in which he dealt with the army of the elephant, who plotted against his sacred house and wanted to destroy it. They equipped themselves for that purpose and brought with them an elephant to destroy it. They came with a huge army from Ethiopia and Yemen that the Arabs could not withstand. When they reached the vicinity of Makkah, having encountered no resistance from the Arabs and the people of Makkah, fled the city fearing for their lives, Allah sent against them birds in

00:03:02--> 00:03:41

flocks, that is in scattered groups carrying heated stones of baked clay. They pelted the army with those stones and stripped them all from the first to the last of them. They were turned into lifeless bodies and became like a cop devoured and trampled. Allah dealt with their evil and caused their blood cause their plot to backfire. And their story is very well known. That was the year in which the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born, and it became one of the portents and precursors of his mission, praise and thanks be to Allah.

00:03:43--> 00:04:19

So again, it's a straightforward kind of commentary on the surah. And we know the story behind this. The revelation of the surah is what happened in the year the prophets are long running was Senator was born. And that's the story of the elephant. And that's when the leader of that kind of Kingdom or dynasty in itself, that again, was part of inhibition at the time and be seen here, which again, covers most of what we call today, the African own. So that would include

00:04:20--> 00:04:21

Ethiopia,

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

big parts of Sudan,

00:04:25--> 00:04:41

Djibouti, Eritrea, Somalia, Kenya, and others as well to some other parts of different countries. So it was a very powerful dynasty at the time, and it occupied Yemen. So Yemen was taken over by

00:04:42--> 00:04:46

Russia many times and it's at the times by the Persians.

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

So at that time, it was the Abyssinians, who were in charge of Yemen. And Iran was the leader and he wanted because he saw how the Arabs would go and pray in the house.

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

And the Sacred House, which was the household reply here. And that gave the Mexicans this kind of power. And it gave the Arab, the Arab some kind of independence, religious independence he wanted, he wanted to control them, because he had a lot of like powerful, the over trade, business and the financial world. But he wanted control even more with the religious and social. So the key to that would be to build a house, where everyone comes to worship. And again, mistakingly, like everyone who's attached to this world, they would translate everything to the language they understand. So he did not understand that this is a divinely prescribed place for worship. So he thought the Arabs go

00:05:46--> 00:06:09

there just because of the historical value, or maybe just the architectural history of this place. Right? So he said, I'm going to build a house that is far better than this in terms of architecture, resources, beauty, he even used gold in the building of what was called the police at the time. And they say today, there are some remains of that Indiana.

00:06:11--> 00:06:52

So he built such a monumental, you know, huge cathedral or building and he invited the Arabs to con and pray there, but none of them showed up. And so many events happened again, there were historical narrations about the some of the Arabs desecrating good place. So he became an food infuriated, decided to march to Mecca, and demolish wipe out the Sacred House again, the Arabs were the pagans at the time, but still, they claimed the the heritage of Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam being the descendants of Israel, at least. So.

00:06:53--> 00:07:41

So he wanted to destroy that, and again, sort of take to himself and to Yemen, and to his dynasty, even religious leadership in the Arabian Peninsula and against him, the Arabs were just some scattered tribes. So he thought it would be easy. So he translated all of this to what to architecture, to worldly resources in terms of finances, power, political power, military power, and he thought that would be enough. But he, there was something that could not register on his radar, or his map, which was the religious true religious value, and the divine plan for that place. Again, just like today, you will find people who believe only in materialism, who only again, follow this

00:07:41--> 00:07:51

sort of philosophical, you know, background of naturalism, which only believes that what exists is matter. What exists is only the things that you can

00:07:52--> 00:08:14

perceive with your senses, or the things that you can measure with the device. So they don't believe in the spiritual world, they don't believe in the unseen world. So for them, you know, any spiritual or any religious phenomenon has to translate either into has to translate into psychological phenomenon, like thinking false cognition, or emotions.

00:08:16--> 00:08:30

For simple actions, right, it has to translate into new neurology, brain activity, or it has to translate into some kind of physiological activity, they don't understand that there is something beyond that, that you cannot detect.

00:08:32--> 00:09:16

So Abraham ashram was similar to that. And he thought, you know, I could just ruin this place, the Arabs have no chance of winning this war whatsoever. They were outnumbered, you know, probably by a ratio of one to 100, or even more, and he had resources they didn't have, which were the elephants. And again talking about, you know, Arabs who would only fight with their swords. Again, having an army with hundreds of elephants, obviously, you know, they could do nothing in the face of that. So he marched to Mecca. But again, we know that Allah subhanaw taala has sent these birds with this burning call, or stones or fire that burned them and destroyed them completely wiped them out, no

00:09:16--> 00:09:33

one survived. No one survived. There's one generation dimensions, one of them survived, and to talk told the news, but eventually he died. So Allah subhanaw taala made this more of a marker or precursor to the sending of Prophet Muhammad Salah when he said

00:09:36--> 00:09:41

and again, what lessons we could take for our time, is that you know, no human power

00:09:42--> 00:10:00

is significant when it comes to the might of Allah subhanaw taala. So any kind of superpower any kind of technology and the kind of weapons weaponry that nations have, any kind of advancement they have, whatever that is, Allah could drew in that in a second.

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

And Lockwood destroy it in a second. And the fact that it like keeps it there. And there is a wisdom, Allah is testing the believers and was testing the believers. And Allah is placing an obligation on the believers to rise to the moment to hold on to the truth and defend it. So, again, I believe we should not see anything in comparison to the mind and the power of Allah subhanaw taala oftentimes, we Muslims have this kind of inferiority, we brought up with that, because again, a lot of us are brought up in a secular way. Most Muslims are, you know, a brought up in second in a secular way, a lot of what we call Islamic even, or Islamic education and teaching is mod, you know,

00:10:45--> 00:11:18

is saturated with a lot of secularism. So, you know, so it's hard to see through an ideology when you have swallowed most of its assumptions, basic assumptions and underpinnings, it's very hard, you need to free yourself at a deeper level to be able to see the flaws in it and the weakness in it. So, a lot of us you know, and humans have this weakness to power. Humans have this you know, power has such an appeal to humans, to the point that it changes how we think it changes how you feel.

00:11:20--> 00:11:22

This is why power is a fitna is a triumph

00:11:24--> 00:11:51

so Subhanallah Muslims look at the nations that are more advanced in technology in military power and political power, right. And we sort of acknowledge that inferiority that we have and we we make it the springboard from from which we think we plan we process the world we act and we feel

00:11:52--> 00:12:17

but real freedom is actually to break from that is really to be able to break from that and see something different see a different possibility that is not bound by the limits of the status quo. So these will be lessons that we can take from this and now we can move on to solid and home as part of the man mr. Mo long to see resort in home where he keeps him

00:12:19--> 00:12:22

where you know liquidity home as in Luminesce under the agenda

00:13:13--> 00:13:14

Now

00:13:15--> 00:14:09

Surah to Hamza Bismillah R Rahman Al Rahim. Whoa, this is a warning of bad consequences and severe punishment to every back biter fault finder, who criticizes people by his actions and condemns them in his words. The word translated here as back biter refers to one who speaks ill of people and criticizes them by means of gestures and actions. The fault finder is the one who criticizes them in his words. One of the characteristics of the back biter and fault finder is that he does not care about anything except accumulating wealth, counting it and exalting in it he has no desire to spend it on good causes upholding ties of kinship and the lake Yes, it will be generally he and Amanda who

00:14:28--> 00:14:50

Thinking in his ignorance, that is wealth will make him live forever in this world. Therefore, all his efforts are focused on making his wealth grow, that he thinks will extend his life. He does not realize that stinginess shortens life and leads to ruin, whereas generosity increases one's lifespan

00:15:17--> 00:15:49

by no means he will surely be flung that is thrown into the crushing fire and how could you know what the crushing fire is? This highlights how serious and and terrifying the matter is. Then that is explained by seeing it is Allah's own kindled fire, the fuel of which is men and stones, which because of its intensity will reach right into the hearts. That is it will penetrate deeply into the body and reach the heart.

00:15:51--> 00:16:07

When the hell out of it the believer will soon Effie has been a suominen Horologium in what he had the call in hiring him much solder a mobile aka fi I didn't mean Hollyfield aboard moment did the Hello Joe minha Kula

Roman, or Ido via not only will let him in Derek was arugula forward half year.

00:16:15--> 00:16:50

In addition to that, to that intense heat, they will be detained and chained up and will despair of ever emerging from it. Hence, a law says it will confine them behind doors barred with huge beams so that they will not be able to leave. Every time they want to escape from it, they will be driven back into it. as such. Daya 20 We seek refuge with Allah from that and we ask him for his pardon and well being so similar to him as are some scholars linked it to solar on my own.

00:16:51--> 00:17:28

If you notice that there is some similarity in theme, there is some connection. So the solar here again links the external behavior of a person to the reality of their heart and shows different aspects of that external behavior. But this ruler here emphasizes the end, the ultimate end, what's the final destiny of such a person? So again, it talks about the first the first trait that Allah subhanaw taala highlights here is that a person who ridicules or mocks or makes fun of others either by

00:17:30--> 00:17:35

gestures, you know, facial facial gestures,

00:17:36--> 00:17:48

or by actions. Again, a lot of pranks are condescending. And now we live. So speaking a bit more to the younger generation here we live in.

00:17:49--> 00:18:19

And then in an endemic of perhaps, where if you want to become famous, you know, just make the most absurd prance, the most despicable, disrespectful, human denigrating pranks, and then all of a sudden, you've got people's attention. And then we say, you know, these, this is such a bad thing. But we are the fuel of that. We are the ones who fueling it, we are the ones who are watching it, we are the ones who are making it popular, right.

00:18:20--> 00:18:25

So again, this shows a sickness, a real sickness, like a serious sickness of the heart.

00:18:26--> 00:19:13

Where you don't equilibrium is enormous. So anyone who again, mocks others makes fun of them, looks down upon them. This shows that there is serious corruption in their heart. So they either do that again, either with facial gestures, which is more subtle, or with actions which is more sophisticated, or with words, which is more like insulting or backbiting, oh, just straight like straightforwardly offending someone with words. This shows that that person has a serious thing in their heart that they need to address. There's a serious corruption that Allah talks about how this corruption even manifests in other areas of their life. So this is more of the relational the social

00:19:13--> 00:19:21

aspect of how it manifests in relationships or with regards to other people. But what about other areas? Allah subhanaw taala says,

00:19:23--> 00:19:26

under the Gemini man and why, yes.

00:19:27--> 00:19:38

Such a person, their goal, their ultimate goal, their obsession is with you know, holding as much wealth as possible, making as much in a wealth as possible and holding it.

00:19:39--> 00:19:59

Why because they see the self importance of themselves. They see themselves better than others that they deserve, that they are worthy of more than others. So they want to prove that with again, external parameters that society approves of, and celebrates. And that's

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

What?

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

Wealth accumulating wealth so they can have an edge over people. So under the GEMA man,

00:20:10--> 00:20:52

the man who these people are so deluded, the so deceived, that they act and they behave and they live as if there is as if they are going to live forever. They might make money, they hoard money, they, they seek to make more money, they're so greedy, as if you know they are going to live forever. And subhanAllah the Prophet SAW Selim said love cannot live in he had them word him in the hub, la polla, botanical Lichterman, and what we're currently getting at them, why are they getting into lapolla Bella, what are you know, what are, you know, add a name the other hand, this is not random, one valley full of gold, he would ask you to, if he had to, he wouldn't be sure.

00:20:53--> 00:21:25

This is a person who doesn't have faith, a person whose heart is not rich with faith will have to compensate, they will have to make up that greed, or that hunger that is meant to direct them to Allah to get more goodness from Allah Subhana Allah, more devotion to Allah. Because they don't, this road is blocked for them. So they seek to compensate somewhere else with the wrong stuff that will never fill them up. And you know, they say in English, you never get enough of what you don't need.

00:21:26--> 00:21:51

Things that you truly don't need, you can't get enough once you hooked on them, you can't get enough of them. Why? Because it's an insatiable quest. And it consumes their life. So these people forgot about Allah and that's why they seek wealth. And for them, it is like the ultimate criterion. It is the most important thing in life. And are we Muslims guilty of that?

00:21:52--> 00:22:11

Yes, is there a healthy approach to money in business yes, but it's not what a lot of Muslims are advocating. Now, a lot of what we have is you know, we have become very good today Muslims we have become very good at taking whatever we have in the west and

00:22:14--> 00:22:21

somehow play with it on the surface. Right and literally change nothing essential about it.

00:22:23--> 00:23:04

Change a little bit of the outside of it certain aspects and they say, then find some quotes from the Prophet sorcerer and from the Quran, from the Companions from Tabby and from some scholars pick and choose because you're going to find something that doesn't really align with what with with your theory, so you know, these will be canceled. And then they'll say, you know, this is how Islamic entrepreneurship is, and you find these people have all the ailments of the capitalists, the people are thirsty for money people who worship money that's uh, that's like we had a problem that we are again like

00:23:05--> 00:23:28

we are living a lot of us are living in the shade of the Western civilization and we're just borrowing everything from there without sifting it without examining yet now we have two problems that we have Muslims you know, acting like the Trojan horse right you know, camouflaging this as Islamic then bringing it right into the heart of the Islamic

00:23:29--> 00:23:42

Society community right and people you know who don't know enough you know, take it with trust people who did not swallow other you know approaches to wealth so they take that because it's marketed as Islamic

00:23:43--> 00:23:52

not knowing is just more deceptive than the the clearly advertised non Islamic stuff. So again, this is more of a

00:23:54--> 00:24:01

tangent but it is something you need to be careful about. There is an approach to wealth that when wealth you

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

solely seek it

00:24:05--> 00:24:09

as a means that will bring you to

00:24:11--> 00:24:35

a means that will bring you to Allah and you have figured out a plan and a way where money really fits and it becomes an enhancer on your on your on your quest for for the acceptance and reward from Allah subhanaw taala that's when really money has you can actually even like make a lot of money with that. But you know what, you have to not be attached to it.

00:24:37--> 00:24:39

Yeah, so

00:24:40--> 00:24:51

yes, everyone no matter what color you put on by this person and his wealth are going to be thrown into the destructive fire. It's going to destroy the alarm engines put them up from crashing

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

help them

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

okay means to crush something it crushes, crushes them.

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

And not only that, it's an it's locked up, they're locked in it, they can't escape. They're stuck in it. But not only that, it has also an extra layer of defense, it has these huge beams, where it's completely, you know, separated from everything else. There's no way out. It's like a solid, you know, barrier, there's no way you can, you know, come through that. So

00:25:30--> 00:25:32

then Allah subhanaw taala says, it's a fire,

00:25:33--> 00:25:43

that it's it's so hot, again, that it not only bends to the buddy, but it goes right into the heart and forehead is not only like there's, we have an Arabic

00:25:45--> 00:25:52

and we have an dnn, and we have alpha and all of them are used for

00:25:53--> 00:25:56

all of them are used for the heart. All of them are used for the heart.

00:25:58--> 00:26:01

So there is a difference. But again, it's not very clear.

00:26:02--> 00:26:14

But just linguistically speaking, and usually like the heart is used for what we mean by the heart, the physical heart and the spiritual heart.

00:26:15--> 00:26:36

Algernon is more used in higher meanings about the heart, especially higher states of the heart. This is why usually when I talk about a man, you will find the the the rate of the the use of the word Janeane of the heart, one of the words for the heart increases.

00:26:38--> 00:26:45

So there's a famous statement where the Muslim scholars describe what is Iman really they would say, an amen

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

Quran beauty Jana,

00:26:52--> 00:26:54

we're all in Belize. And what

00:26:56--> 00:27:10

they would say it is belief, full conviction in the heart of Japan. And speech of the tongue, and actions of the limbs. So they use the word general, but l four and

00:27:11--> 00:27:32

l four ad, again is used away from there is you can't imply the physical heart when you mentioned the word for ad. So the burning fire not only gets to the heart as the piece of flesh here as the physical organ, but even gets to what to the spiritual side of who you are.

00:27:34--> 00:27:43

That tells you how it's it's not even it's something even different than the fire that we know. It's way more intense than that. Okay.

00:27:44--> 00:27:57

What does this tell us again with certain amount is that we need to be careful about what's in our hearts. And how do we know how can we know what's in our hearts? You external behavior tells you a lot

00:27:58--> 00:28:01

the external behavior tells you a lot what your priorities are.

00:28:02--> 00:28:05

You know what is how do you treat other people

00:28:06--> 00:28:12

how do you use your time? How observant Are you have the limits of Allah subhanaw taala

00:28:13--> 00:28:26

How are you using and investing your time these are markers if you really get the answers to them and put them together you're gonna have a very clear like report of what your heart really is.

00:28:28--> 00:28:38

Yeah, but saying you know I have a good heart you know you just playing games on yourself. Chapin is also using that against Okay, let's move on to solid and last but

00:28:39--> 00:28:48

not long to see a little salty last little boy here. Makita Smilla Rahmanir Rahim wala for us in Santa Fe

So far we have been easily fans

00:29:31--> 00:30:00

Surah Lawson Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. Here Allah swears by time which is night and day in which people's deeds take place, that every person is a loser and loss is the opposite of success. Loss is a various kinds. It may be absolute loss, as in the case of one who loses in this world and the Hereafter, who misses out on bliss

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

and desert and deserves Hellfire or he may be a loser in some ways but not others. Therefore Allah describes everyone as a loser, except one who has the following four qualities

00:30:15--> 00:30:21

of iman will be my mandala who will Imani be one corner Amen will be donated for who

00:30:23--> 00:30:53

behave for belief in that which Allah has commanded us to believe in, and belief and culture and faith cannot be sound unless they are based on knowledge for faith is something that stems from knowledge and cannot be perfect. Cannot be perfect without it.

righteous deeds which include all good deeds both outward and inward having to do with duties towards a law and towards his slaves, both obligatory and recommended. What else leave it help under the hood? Amen. Well, I'm sorry. Uh, usually by Bloomberg gonna be there with adequate rally while you're on the movie, exhorting one another to hold fast to the truth and do righteous deeds. That is they exhort one another, urge one another and encourage one another to do that.

00:31:30--> 00:31:35

What's up Wesley Bisland, little delta Atilla he won NASA tilde

00:31:36--> 00:31:37

tilde Hill Mollema.

00:31:38--> 00:32:01

exhorting one another to be steadfast in obeying Allah in refraining from disobedience towards him. And in accepting the painful decrees of Allah forbid a minute or whether you need your commodity economy to insert an officer who will anointing oil you need you can mill over your head with a comedian or more than herba, your Kunal internal but selima, Minahasa warfare is

00:32:03--> 00:32:18

by means of the first tool, one may perfect oneself and by means of the last to one may help others to perfect themselves. By perfecting all four things, one will be saved from loss and will attain great success.

00:32:20--> 00:32:21

Sort of in

00:32:24--> 00:32:28

the short, yet, very deep, remember chefs

00:32:30--> 00:32:31

said local

00:32:32--> 00:32:34

and national heavy soda like

00:32:35--> 00:32:47

you said, if people recited had people recited the sewer Well, as it truly deserved, it would have been enough meaning enough over reminder to reminder to them.

00:32:48--> 00:33:07

It's also mentioned the same quote is, is quoted differently slightly differently. Loma Anza Allah we literally saw, like a photo had alone you revealed salatu salam did have been enough. I think you will find this in solid scope.

00:33:11--> 00:33:22

Allah subhanaw taala. And I will probably elaborate a little bit more on this slide just just because it's very profound. So Allah makes a lot of squares by time,

00:33:23--> 00:33:30

by the elements of time, because again, time is the context in which

00:33:31--> 00:33:43

we live, and we do either good or bad. So Allah is this is irrelevant. The context of time is irrelevant, that your success or your loss

00:33:45--> 00:33:51

have a lot to do with time. The concept of time and time is the creation of Allah Allah created time.

00:33:56--> 00:33:58

And Allah says, by that law confirms by that,

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

that man is in loss. All humans are heading to loss

00:34:07--> 00:34:11

unless you save yourself from that current

00:34:12--> 00:34:29

unless you save yourself from that currency in this way, humanity are carried by this tide. Everyone is driven by it. It's a raging, very powerful stream or tie

00:34:30--> 00:34:32

in its head heading to the hellfire.

00:34:35--> 00:34:41

From this side, there will be the odd ones that will jump out of it.

00:34:43--> 00:34:46

This is the stream or this is the title of loss.

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

So Allah says do Allah says man is in Los humans are lost in in Santa Fe? In like, indeed, emphatically man, meaning all of humans.

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

are in loss.

00:35:02--> 00:35:09

But there are exceptions and exemptions are a minority in the inside of the few coastal

00:35:10--> 00:35:21

inland Avena. He mentions these four traits. Now, somebody might say, but everyone, you know, it's the stream. So why do why are people lost?

00:35:22--> 00:35:30

Again, as a human being you are brought into this life and you are given a trust a man, Allah mentions it in the Quran,

00:35:31--> 00:35:52

you are given the trust and that trust, you're supposed to fulfill it, you're supposed to take care of it. If I give you a trust, you suppose if you agree to take it, that means you agree to take care of it. Now, if you don't stay true to that it's your fault. The fact that everyone is heading in the wrong direction everyone is betraying the trust.

00:35:54--> 00:36:34

Everyone is unfaithful to the trust does not give you any justification. What does that mean? That means this kind of, you know, group thing is not good for you. You have to choose for yourself, you have to think for yourself, you have to take time out from you know, this social mindset, or the society mentality, you have to take a break from it. And think individually, think critically, think seriously about your life, you have to do this, if you don't do this, you have already chosen the tide of loss to be part of that.

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

And you know, sometimes people say,

00:36:41--> 00:36:42

you know,

00:36:44--> 00:36:51

some people get an easier life and some people get a difficult life, but you know what? Life itself is a calamity.

00:36:53--> 00:36:55

Life itself is a carnality

00:36:57--> 00:36:58

Adam was put in Jannah.

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

What does it mean? Close Allah with all the beauty in it, we're not going to talk about that. The most beautiful thing in gentlemen is one of closeness to Allah.

00:37:11--> 00:37:15

nearness to Allah, enjoying the company of Allah.

00:37:17--> 00:37:23

Spending time with Allah, personal time and feeling the warmth of that relationship.

00:37:25--> 00:37:35

So that's what Adam was given. But he was told he was instructed Don't come near this tree. So there isn't like a circle around this.

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

Don't come near it.

00:37:39--> 00:37:41

What about the street? Nothing special.

00:37:43--> 00:37:47

It's a test suggest the thing is, do you choose Allah?

00:37:48--> 00:37:52

And you don't need anything about the street? Do you choose Allah and trust him?

00:37:53--> 00:37:58

Which is the amount of that he gave you? Are you going to go against that?

00:38:02--> 00:38:07

So at the medical center left all of Jana and he went to that tree

00:38:09--> 00:38:15

because of the whispers of Shiva, because he listened to the whispers and to the false promise of Shaman.

00:38:16--> 00:38:22

So in a sense, symbolically, I'm speaking Allah said, Okay, I give you agenda and I told you don't come near this.

00:38:23--> 00:38:52

So because once you come near this tree, it becomes a fitna, it becomes a trial, you start to develop curiosity, what is, you know, what is it about this tree that I am prevented from approaching it from coming near it? Then shape and flow fills that space made by curiosity? What does he say? Hello, look, hold the woman King Abdullah, shall I give you an eternal guide you to the tree that will go on to

00:38:53--> 00:38:56

any mortality, eternal life,

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

eternal life

00:38:59--> 00:39:00

and

00:39:01--> 00:39:08

dominance or dominion, that will never cease to exist. But Allah has already given Adam done.

00:39:12--> 00:39:20

So since Adam left Jana and took the tree, the prohibited tree and he could not resist that weakness in Adam.

00:39:22--> 00:39:28

That weakness in Adam needs to be treated otherwise he does not qualify for gender.

00:39:30--> 00:39:32

And Adam is not only one person

00:39:33--> 00:39:53

although he was the person he's the father of all humans, but he symbolizes and resembles us. The and whatever weaknesses in wasn't Adam is in every one of us. So that needs to be treated, that weakness needs to be overcome, so that you can enter Jannah

00:39:54--> 00:39:55

and be with Allah.

00:39:56--> 00:39:57

You need to get rid of that.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

The evil part of you

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

You that doesn't trust Allah that would fall for a small petty temptation. And at that moment, forget the promise of Allah.

00:40:09--> 00:40:19

So in a sense, Allah said, go down to the earth, the earth is pretty much like the tree that Adam was prevented from coming near.

00:40:21--> 00:40:35

So Allah subhanho wa Taala in a sense, he said, all of you, humans go near the tree, live around it. But don't fall for it. You do that. You fix the mistake, you come back to Jelena because you're worthy of

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

innocence that's what happened. So Allah subhanaw taala so when humans is why said life is calamity itself, living in this world is a calamity because you know, humans was hit were hit the most when Adam was expelled from Ghana, etc. What could be most more atrocious than what could be more tragic? What could be more tragic

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

than being expelled from dinner and brought to this life?

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

When people talk about this enjoy life is having a happy life.

00:41:12--> 00:41:13

A lot of people pulling themselves

00:41:15--> 00:41:17

up people say you know, I have a lot of hardships in life.

00:41:19--> 00:41:21

More hardship than being expelled from Jinnah

00:41:22--> 00:41:24

and risking

00:41:25--> 00:41:29

not being able to go back to it for eternity.

00:41:30--> 00:41:46

Do you understand what we are in? That's the point. We don't understand what we are in. We understand the predicament that we are living in. We're looking for problems. We're waiting for people to upset us to offend us right to feel offended. So I have a reason to get depressed.

00:41:48--> 00:41:51

You have enough reason to get depressed.

00:41:54--> 00:41:57

You will be expelled from telnet you were brought here

00:41:58--> 00:42:04

and there is high possibility you could not make it to Jana. And that means never ever.

00:42:06--> 00:42:16

That means you never get a chance to come close to Allah. You will be deprived of Allah of nearness to Allah for good. And you are talking about

00:42:19--> 00:42:20

a toothache?

00:42:21--> 00:42:27

Oh, someone is not picking up the phone. I'm so sad. I'm depressed. I can't even see.

00:42:28--> 00:42:32

You see, you see what modernity has done to us.

00:42:34--> 00:42:36

Is not by making us oversensitive.

00:42:37--> 00:42:45

That's just on the surface. The reality is it made us forget that we are in the most difficult predicament.

00:42:46--> 00:42:51

You are in it. You know what I mean? Let me it's sometimes we think better with analogy.

00:42:54--> 00:42:57

Imagine a child living in a loving household

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

the child obviously has this beautiful sense of warmth, coziness beauty, love.

00:43:11--> 00:43:16

The child gets kidnapped and is taken away from his home

00:43:19--> 00:43:29

no longer missing his bearings. No safety. He doesn't know what's going to happen tomorrow is in the hands of the abductors. Right

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

he doesn't know

00:43:37--> 00:43:46

would anything really be worse? Could anything worse happened to this child that are being taken away from home and being denied to be with their family?

00:43:48--> 00:43:59

That's the story of humans. And what am says well I can serve you I do wait for help. You know he says actually for how Janna Jannetty

00:44:01--> 00:44:04

zero can Oh La Vie Hello mocha yellow when

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

it says hey come on let's go he's like

00:44:15--> 00:44:18

he's he's he's encouraging people to

00:44:19--> 00:44:50

to work to to start marching to Jelena for Hey yo yo la sala right come to the grave hey he either didn't it either. For in mana zero calluna Come on. Let's go to gentlemen, this is your home. This is your first house your parents house what you call really home man as Luca Gula. We'll see Hello. Hi, Liam. Whoo. There, you should dwell forever. What our kin Nana subdued. I do we we have been taken captive by the enemy. We've been kidnapped by the enemy. Szczepan took us captive here.

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

We're lucky enough

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

to think one day we will make it back home.

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

And we say

00:45:03--> 00:45:05

this is what life really is.

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

This is what life is.

00:45:10--> 00:45:18

So they give you TV shows, movies, Netflix, video games, so you can never think about that.

00:45:21--> 00:45:24

You need a video game your life is the most intriguing video game.

00:45:25--> 00:45:30

Save yourself. Why do you need to save some fiction? Like fictitious?

00:45:33--> 00:45:37

Why do you need that you have the most dramatic story in existence.

00:45:39--> 00:45:51

Literally your life is the most dramatic story in existence. And Allah is telling you what also by time man is in lost, you kidnapped you taken? Why? Because it's your fault. You went with your enemies.

00:45:52--> 00:45:58

He offered you that sweetie, and you run away from your mother from your dad. And you stuck now.

00:46:00--> 00:46:04

And Allah has sent you the way back Allah has sent you that prescription.

00:46:05--> 00:46:08

He told you how to make it back to him. But you know what?

00:46:09--> 00:46:13

You still busy with more sweeties from your criminals.

00:46:17--> 00:46:28

So that's what's happening. It's new, Allah says will answer in an incentive your hustle, you will win last you are kidnapped. And you have Stockholm Syndrome you are identifying with your kidnappers.

00:46:34--> 00:46:37

Say we want gender. Like we kind of want it.

00:46:39--> 00:47:00

Why? Because our parents thought this because we read it in the Quran. But what do we really want? What do you really want? What do you wake up really craving? What are you going to sleep thinking about? That's what really matters. Whereas in answer another because you are in this man in this

00:47:01--> 00:47:02

what's it like?

00:47:04--> 00:47:05

What's the word for that?

00:47:07--> 00:47:09

You want in this again?

00:47:10--> 00:47:20

I lost the word but you want this mega kind of sleep. Everyone is sleeping sleep woke. And you just head into the hellfire.

00:47:22--> 00:47:30

The profit center Saddam is waking this up. The Quran is waking us up. Allah sends reminders waking up waking up earthquakes.

00:47:32--> 00:47:37

people committing suicide people murdered people, people dying in car crashes.

00:47:39--> 00:47:44

Wake up, wake up, wake up, but we still you know going off to the zombie

00:47:46--> 00:47:49

will also endurance in the arena for

00:47:51--> 00:47:53

you want to save yourself from that.

00:47:56--> 00:47:58

Belief belief is not

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

an idea that you accepts. No, that's not belief.

00:48:05--> 00:48:41

Okay. So belief is not cognitive, using again, a little bit of scientific language is not cognitive is not thinking is not in the mind. Belief is in the heart. And what is that? What's in the heart. We mentioned that previously you are designed as a human being when there is a truth. There is a response that is built in in you to that truth. When you know Allah is one and Allah is the creator and the provider. Your heart moves in love and all and fear and you seek Him above all else. That's a natural response of your heart of your fitrah

00:48:42--> 00:48:51

that's what a man is when your heart moves towards what you learn. When you accept His true that's a man this is what is this course called if Quran

00:48:54--> 00:49:09

because if he man were a mental construct, Chapin would be a believer because she believes mentally intellectually that Allah is one that he's the only one who deserves to be worshipped deserves to be obeyed. doesn't make him a believer, he's a cover.

00:49:11--> 00:49:15

So it's not an idea. People think, you know, a man has an idea, I'm convinced.

00:49:16--> 00:49:53

Convinced Okay, so what if that convention does not know that conviction does not move your heart that your heart is dead? And so that means no Amen? So that's what you need to work on. You're thirsty, you seek water, right? That means your physiology is healthy. Your system is healthy. You have a new heart that system which is called a man a man is when your heart moves, moves, there is life in your heart, and it responds to that knowledge is why he said knowledge is what faith stems from.

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

So if there is no their response, this is why when you disobey that's a weak

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

You see, man, because you're not responding to what you know, or you're not responding properly, or you're not responding fully.

00:50:10--> 00:50:20

Okay, so let me know, I made a solid hat, you have faith, you have moves, that's gonna reflect in doing righteousness, doing good deeds.

00:50:22--> 00:50:23

So that's fixing yourself.

00:50:25--> 00:50:26

But it's not enough.

00:50:27--> 00:50:32

It's not enough. Because your loyalty to the truth, your love of the truth

00:50:33--> 00:50:36

necessitates that when you see evil,

00:50:37--> 00:50:38

you have a personal issue with it.

00:50:42--> 00:51:03

It gives you that itch, you can't live seen evil around, that kind of incurred on the rejection, that kind of aversion to the evil to falsehood. That's a sign of Amen. There's why the prophets Allah sent them said, model Amin como current value over a year ago. Right? If you see evil, change it.

00:51:04--> 00:51:16

You haven't conquered your tongue. You can't. You can't at least in your heart, you will have this aversions hate this rejection of it, when he said that he came in an email and he had better than

00:51:17--> 00:51:27

after that, if you don't have this hot rejection in your heart, this aversion disappearance to evil, and there is no email.

00:51:30--> 00:51:47

So what happened, this this necessitates that you want others, you want others to follow the truth you want good for them. That's part of your inner as part of your natural good, because there's no difference between a man and a good there's no difference. There's no good without a man.

00:51:49--> 00:51:54

It may have traces of the original good, but it's not good. It's mostly it's going to be used for shape or used for evil.

00:51:56--> 00:52:24

So you want to advise others and you know, on this path isn't unknown to us, or will help with our souls. So they remind encourage one another to the truth and to be patient. Because again, you're living in a life here with us. Again, most people are in this tide, the heading to the hellfire. So they are engaged in evil, they enjoy evil, they have swallowed the evil, they spread evil. So that obviously is going to clash with the good that you have.

00:52:26--> 00:52:28

It's gonna clash. So you will need Patience.

00:52:29--> 00:52:57

You have elements, evil, evil elements within you, you have to resist you need patience for that. Life is not easy. Many times. You know, there are misfortunes challenging conditions of that requires patience. So you have it in yourself and you have it and others. One of the big faults that people have is they always thinking of the faults of others, I want to fix this person, that person, but the last person they think about is themselves.

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

So the person has this

00:53:03--> 00:53:06

and they are a puppet used by Chopin and they don't know it.

00:53:07--> 00:53:30

And think they are the ones who enjoy the good and forbidding the evil and so on and so forth. But they haven't looked into themselves. There's a lot of statements from Imams that good starts with yourself before you start because you can't you want no good what good really is unless you engage in it properly. Because a lot of what you have in your in theory as good

00:53:31--> 00:53:36

in real life might not translate as good. Might be a fancy idea.

00:53:37--> 00:53:40

Okay, so again, this is sort of

00:53:41--> 00:53:45

a last let's move on to solid at the cathode.

Surah At

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

Kathal Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim here ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, rebuking his slaves from being distracted from that for which they were created of worshipping Him alone, with no partner or associate, knowing him and turning to him, and giving precedence to love of Him over all other things. Competition for worldly gain or distracts you from what is mentioned above, what they compete in is not specified so as to include everything that people compete to accumulate and boast about, such as accumulating wealth, children, supporters, troops, servants, status and other things that people usually compete with one another for where the aim is not sincerely to seek the pleasure

00:55:51--> 00:56:05

of Allah subhana wa Tada. First a mandala of literal come with a what to come. What was what Tisha Hector's optimal Mikado? Frankish a fella campaigner isn't able to be without can by the matter either Polycom is the interval

your heedlessness and distraction continue until you come to your graves where upon reality becomes clear to you. But that is after it has become impossible for you to rectify your situation. The words until you come to your graves indicate that elbows off is something that people will pass through before reaching the realm of eternity. Because the word translated here as come to literally means visit. A law describes them as visitors not as settlers for the law,

This points to the resurrection and recruitable for deeds in an eternal realm that will never end. Hence he warns them by seeing names you will come to know again nay you will come to know. Nay if you knew for certain the consequences of your actions, you would not act as you do. That is if you knew what lay ahead of you with knowledge that had an impact on your hearts. You would not be distracted by accumulation of worldly gain. And you would hasten to do righteous deeds. But lack of certain knowledge has led you to where you are now.

00:58:08--> 00:58:20

Like in this era, Camila methylone letter a woman and Jehane a lot of Dune I will tell you you don't know to Yama for that Allah guna Jehovah that Allah who didn't caffeine through March

00:58:21--> 00:58:24

18 Or you're not yet an bursary yet come across

00:58:25--> 00:58:30

more than one homework. Well, I'm here to do anonymously if

00:58:33--> 00:59:03

you will surely see the blazing fire that is you will come on the Day of Resurrection and you will surely see the blazing fire that Allah has prepared for the disbelievers again, you will surely see it with absolute certainty, that is with your own eyes as Allah subhanaw taala says elsewhere, the evildoers will see the fire and will realize that they are bound to fall into it and will find no escape from it alcohol I have 53

00:59:04--> 00:59:36

monitors alone I oh man even and in under the channel I'm torn behavior there in dunya. Basically, what are they to help Allah Hi Fi Welcome to studying will be here. See in Hakuna Iman al Amin who football me to be here when I'm talking movie Shoukry Barack Obama Stan to be Silla for your antibac Kumada Dalek Allah Tada Abu Lena Kaffir one hepatoma You bet you can be hierarchical Madonia was tempted to be heavily omit with his own own.

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

Then on that Day, you will surely be asked about worldly bounties that you enjoyed in this world. Did you give thanks for them and fulfill your duty to Allah concerning them and not use them to disobey Him so that He might grant you a bounty that is greater and more sublime than them? Or were you deceived?

01:00:00--> 01:00:36

by them and sip so you fail to give thanks for them. And perhaps you use them to disobey Allah. He will punish you for that. As he says, as he says elsewhere, on the day when those who disbelieved are brought before the fire, it will be said to them, you will have had your share of good things in the life of the previous world, and you have had your fill of pleasure. Today you will be recompensed with a humiliating punishment, because you behaved arrogantly on earth without justification. And because you acted rebelliously off i 20.

01:00:38--> 01:00:48

Okay, so let's get to Catherine, again, is here is the opposite of a co author, although the same route remember we said that a co author from Castle Rock, right?

01:00:49--> 01:01:09

CO probably there's blessings, there's a lot of abundance at multiple levels, genuine abundance, but at the castle is competing to get more competition to make more money to have more resources. In the past people would compete and having more children still in many cultures.

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

Status, right?

01:01:15--> 01:01:22

Anything more reputation? Followers today? Right? Okay. Again, let's make it a little bit more

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

motor technology here on social media, in our people are competing and getting what? Lights getting subscribers, right. So that's I have more subscribers than you I have more than you I am more than that's not the point. The point is, what is the content that you are really sharing? What is it contributing to?

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

That's the question.

01:01:49--> 01:01:51

So Allah subhanaw taala says, Come

01:01:53--> 01:02:05

and help them. So we have two words in Arabic, we have a level, we have a lead, they mentioned in the Quran together, for example, whether it lead to how dudina level one

01:02:07--> 01:02:19

and leave those who have taken their religion meaning their path in life, or the responsibility in life they took it was what learn and lead what's the difference between level and lead

01:02:20--> 01:02:20

level

01:02:22--> 01:02:38

is when the heart starts playing, distracted, the heart part becomes preoccupied, and is distracted. So it's it is entertained, it's engaged in something that is not the point that it

01:02:42--> 01:02:53

is for the limbs is when your limbs are engaged in something that they are not to be there. So that is external that is internal. That's the difference.

01:02:54--> 01:03:10

So what Allah is saying here that you know, getting more again, more wealth, more lights, more status, et cetera, et has preoccupied your hearts. That's what you think about that's what your heart your hearts are chasing. This is what your hearts are preoccupied with.

01:03:12--> 01:03:22

And all of these are, you know, fleeting games, ephemeral, short term aspects of this life, the moment you die, you're going to leave all of that

01:03:24--> 01:03:33

Imam even hasn't has a beautiful book that I'd recommend you actually read it really read it, it would be a very beautiful one. It's called the last laugh or cry, or it has another name.

01:03:36--> 01:03:39

Have you been forced to force?

01:03:43--> 01:03:43

Force whether

01:03:45--> 01:03:47

it's been translated as

01:03:52--> 01:03:59

good character or something like that, look it up. If it hasn't, it's been translated. And I think the publisher even put it for free.

01:04:00--> 01:04:08

The publisher, put it in for free on PDF. It's a very good book. So he says in that book.

01:04:12--> 01:04:15

He says that any pursuit in this life

01:04:17--> 01:04:21

that ends at some point is not worthy of your life.

01:04:23--> 01:04:24

There's no goal

01:04:26--> 01:04:29

that comes to an end that is worthy of your life.

01:04:30--> 01:04:34

Your life is so valuable that it only it's only worthy of

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

an eternal achievement.

01:04:40--> 01:04:48

So he said don't sell gemstone for gravel or something like that.

01:04:50--> 01:04:59

So you might think of again, the richest people in the world or whatever, a lot of people because who are these other celebrities, right?

01:05:00--> 01:05:15

The people who have the most likes the people who have the most numbers in terms of bank accounts, but it was the word everyone is thinking about that everyone sees those as the ultimate like example of success, the model of success, right?

01:05:17--> 01:05:20

There will come a moment when these people will die, and the wealth is gone.

01:05:21--> 01:05:24

So it has in his book

01:05:25--> 01:05:31

irata Levon, you know, rescuing those who are desperate for help for rescue.

01:05:32--> 01:05:35

He says that any pursuit

01:05:36--> 01:05:56

is going to end up in pain. If you achieve it, you will have to leave it either at the moment of death, or life will catch up on you there will be something, someone who will take over you, you will hit a record, someone else will come and outdo you eventually, right? That's what happens.

01:05:58--> 01:06:08

So eventually, you're gonna lose that. So it's going to end up in pain. And the pain will be, it will be more painful than when you didn't even have it in the first place.

01:06:10--> 01:06:32

Or you don't achieve it. And you die in your misery and your pain for not achieving it. Or you eventually even if you achieve it, you die and you're going to have to leave it when you are most desperate and most attached to it. He says what kind of prescription for a life that is. Why do you do that with like, why do you do this to yourself?

01:06:33--> 01:06:38

He says there is a pursuit that never ends. You don't ever lose it.

01:06:39--> 01:06:41

Whether you achieve it you don't lose.

01:06:43--> 01:06:45

If you seek ALLAH subhanaw taala

01:06:46--> 01:07:13

you know, whatever you were seeking for the sake of Allah, you're seeking Allah whether you achieved the goal itself or you don't, it doesn't really matter. You got you got what you want. You got your reward from Allah, you got the acceptance from Allah. And you are you're achieved you progress to Allah even when everything you do for Allah is the same ruined by others or by circumstances. That's fine. I've done that for Allah. It's not for me, so I have nothing to lose.

01:07:14--> 01:07:20

That's why even to me, I like when his enemies tried to ruin him. They would conspire they would

01:07:21--> 01:07:37

put a word with the ruler to destroy him. spread rumors around him, he said, like, literally what can my enemies do to again, I'm gonna paraphrase. What can my enemies do to ruin me to destroy me? Kill me.

01:07:38--> 01:07:40

That's Shahada. That's martyrdom.

01:07:41--> 01:07:43

I couldn't wish for anything better than

01:07:44--> 01:07:47

you giving me what? You know what I couldn't even dream on.

01:07:51--> 01:07:52

In a phony,

01:07:53--> 01:07:58

everyday exile me, I'm gonna spread around and walk around and tell people about Hello.

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

And they put me in prison. He said, This is a long sought goal for me to have privacy with Allah subhanaw taala. You've given it to me on a silver plate. He said what my like, you can't win with a person like that. Why? Because for Allah,

01:08:16--> 01:08:29

it's for Allah. But again, a lot of us Muslims, you know, again, we do things, but we claim ownership over them. Why? Because the intention is not sincerely for Allah, or not completely sincerely for Allah.

01:08:31--> 01:08:33

So someone writes a book,

01:08:34--> 01:08:36

or that's my book.

01:08:38--> 01:08:42

That's my book, project, or that's my project don't get involved.

01:08:43--> 01:08:53

Right? Or if someone messes up, member of the team, you ruined my work, you wasted my time, right?

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

That's a sign that there is something that needs to be fixed needs to be fixed.

01:09:02--> 01:09:25

Because you're taking ownership for something that is meant to be for Allah subhanaw taala alone. Okay, so that's part of it to cattle. All of that is part of all of this. So the not seek the things that will leave you at the moment of death. Seek the things that will remain with you after death. This is what your life is worth.

01:09:29--> 01:09:35

So don't look Don't be deluded by the numbers of these rich people, these famous people, the celebrities.

01:09:37--> 01:09:40

This has its hype. It's gonna die. It's literally gonna die.

01:09:41--> 01:09:46

These people are wasting their life literally wasting their life destroying humanity.

01:09:48--> 01:09:53

Bringing corruption bringing evil serving shape on knowingly and unknowingly.

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

A lot of these people have pacts with Cuba. A lot of these people have tax with Chapin loose

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

different kind of person

01:10:06--> 01:10:24

don't Don't be don't be deceived by the so called Scientific facade. A lot of these people believe in witches superstition, they have this, they have, you know, they have secret packets, they have people from 100 years ago there when their memoirs come out now, you see things

01:10:25--> 01:10:29

that you couldn't believe these people did not display these things.

01:10:31--> 01:10:48

So, so again, this is just that kind of, you know, be scientific, everything has to be proven and all of that that's for public consumption, that's the key piece sedated so they can do what they want under the table. You know, when Shavon and witchcraft and all that evil stuff

01:10:50--> 01:11:00

right, and you can just strive to be accepted by civilization and not be labeled as backward and non scientific right? We live in superstition

01:11:01--> 01:11:05

that's all manipulation of populations. So

01:11:07--> 01:11:08

unhackable to cover

01:11:09--> 01:11:19

have preoccupied your heart this competition when it's literally nothing literally nothing is going to amount to nothing will be dust

01:11:20--> 01:11:33

to cover hectares or to cover you you're chasing all of these numbers becoming better than this more than that and so on and so forth. And then that comes you take into the grave for a visit long visit

01:11:35--> 01:11:49

all what you fought for all of what you had sleepless night for all what you hated people for cut off people for destroy people's lives for slandered others for

01:11:51--> 01:11:57

and, you know, did everything you could for you stripped of all of that.

01:11:58--> 01:12:04

The only thing is what did you do for Allah? Some

01:12:05--> 01:12:09

one thing, what did you know? What did you what?

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

You know, what brands Did you wear? What car did you drive? What color was your hair? How beautiful your beard was? How colorful your hijab was how people loved you liked you admired. You spoke about you

01:12:29--> 01:12:30

all that because

01:12:32--> 01:12:34

we're wasting your time with all of these things.

01:12:36--> 01:12:37

And how

01:12:38--> 01:12:39

you want to degree

01:12:40--> 01:12:43

none of that remains. It's gone.

01:12:44--> 01:12:44

So

01:12:46--> 01:12:55

I think it's an Indian story. Some sages sort of caught it. They see there was this extremely rich man.

01:12:58--> 01:12:58

And

01:13:00--> 01:13:02

he became ill to the point.

01:13:04--> 01:13:06

I'm not sure what his illness was.

01:13:09--> 01:13:18

Yeah, I think he could not what do you call the medical condition when someone is unable to release urine? Stuck? They become stuck blocked?

01:13:19--> 01:13:21

What's What's the word for that in English?

01:13:22--> 01:13:23

How suitable

01:13:25--> 01:13:26

was that in English?

01:13:27--> 01:13:43

Okay, so he could not he could not get rid of you the urine in his blood or he could not release it was blocked. So So someone asked him and he was in extreme pain. And he said how much would you pay? He was the wealthiest person in that that

01:13:44--> 01:13:46

in our, in our time a billionaire.

01:13:48--> 01:14:00

Someone said how much would you pay just to release that urine? He said all my wealth just doesn't have a lot of wealth that is not in a worth. A p sorry.

01:14:02--> 01:14:04

It's not worth wasting your time just accumulating.

01:14:05--> 01:14:22

And that's just a more of a sarcastic approach to it. But it's it shows you the truth. And again, I'm not saying don't have a job, don't earn a living don't have business. I'm not saying none of that I'm talking about where your heart is talking what your priorities are.

01:14:24--> 01:14:36

Optimal, my mother, Carol sofa from last Obatala Monisha Allah you should No, no not no in terms of be informed. No, you shall see the truth.

01:14:37--> 01:14:48

You shall come face to face with the truth. So the dream that you had in this life that distracted you and you went along with it is gone. Now you have to deal with reality.

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

So for

01:14:54--> 01:14:55

Microsoft,

01:14:56--> 01:14:59

they usually come to know with certainty when you

01:15:00--> 01:15:19

Die, you know with certainty, you only see the hereafter. You only see the hereafter and you just have remorse, regret, pain, and blaming yourself for what you did. That's all what you have about the previous life, you're not going to think about, you know how cold the weather was,

01:15:21--> 01:15:37

my car broke down. I didn't wear you know, the, the Apple or Samsung earbuds I had to buy the cheaper ones for 30 bucks, right? I'm miserable person, none of that would come home that will be gone.

01:15:38--> 01:15:46

So don't waste your time. If there is anything that is not going to be on your mind and the grief, it's not worth that you worry about sticking.

01:15:54--> 01:15:56

talamona eliminate your pain,

01:15:57--> 01:16:02

you will know the highest level, the highest level of certainty

01:16:03--> 01:16:13

is not when only you know, you know it, but when that is when when seeing the fire is added on the Day of Judgment. That like that's the ultimate level of certainty.

01:16:16--> 01:16:26

That's what I wouldn't enjoy him from Manitoba. Amen. So there is immediately or you know, with, without any doubt

01:16:27--> 01:16:31

about the truth of his life of the year after. But

01:16:32--> 01:16:40

I finally attain I means I write but it has another meaning in Arabic. Those who speak Arabic.

01:16:42--> 01:16:45

Can you tell us what's the meaning of Ain and uranium?

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

No.

01:16:55--> 01:16:55

I mean,

01:16:59--> 01:17:04

yeah, it could be could be. Yeah, it could be spring auto about in this context

01:17:05--> 01:17:06

means itself.

01:17:09--> 01:17:11

Like it's an emphasis.

01:17:13--> 01:17:26

So, for example, in Deccan keytab, do you have the book we're talking about? Ending Kitab al Kitab. I know, the very book

01:17:28--> 01:17:57

the very book and you know, I in your team, the very true you get to see it. There's like no room for doubt whatsoever. Like compelling in a compelling reality now, no matter to settle Naomi, then and in a then you will be asked about any because again, people think and that's I'm gonna close with that. But I'm gonna allow myself to, again,

01:17:58--> 01:18:00

enjoy. You know, my rant.

01:18:05--> 01:18:13

You remember, if you remember, I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, maybe there was nothing neutral in this life. There's nothing in mutual

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

things that are held

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

in Islam.

01:18:22--> 01:18:47

Yes, from a physics perspective, and that's a very theoretical ideal isolated perspective. Yeah, you can do it, you can leave it no problem. It has this neutral value. But in reality, in practical reality in your life, there is no Helen that is neutral. Because you're either using it for Allah to bring you closer to Allah.

01:18:48--> 01:18:56

Or you're using it to displease Allah. But there's a third possibility

01:18:57--> 01:19:03

that this halaal is distracting you from Allah. In this case, it's also evil.

01:19:07--> 01:19:08

So people think

01:19:11--> 01:19:12

that Allah provides for us.

01:19:14--> 01:19:15

In Arabic they say

01:19:16--> 01:19:16

this word.

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

Allah gives you for the view for the beauty of your eyes.

01:19:23--> 01:19:25

Like for your own excellence and mirrors.

01:19:28--> 01:19:30

Allah created you for a purpose.

01:19:31--> 01:19:39

You are created for a purpose. Your provision is created for that purpose as well.

01:19:41--> 01:19:47

So there's nothing called free gift. There's nothing that Allah creates you say Oh, this is helpful for me I can just take it

01:19:51--> 01:19:54

that means you would be mostly distracted by that.

01:19:55--> 01:19:59

The reason Allah gives blessings because Allah created us to work

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

repayment

01:20:01--> 01:20:02

that's what life is for.

01:20:04--> 01:20:12

So Allah created everything that sustains your life and improves the quality of your life so we can use it to fulfill the purpose

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

this is why it was created for if you use it for the sake of just entertainment enjoying myself

01:20:22--> 01:20:23

can you say

01:20:24--> 01:20:29

sorry bear with me those video games like fans

01:20:30--> 01:20:32

can you say video games are haram?

01:20:37--> 01:20:38

Or video video games

01:20:41--> 01:20:43

How could video games bring you closer to Allah?

01:20:47--> 01:20:56

How could you how could they forget about the negativity that's in the myths say there's a video game that's entertainment there's nothing no bad content is it in it? No evil in it?

01:20:57--> 01:21:00

How can it be how can you use it to bring you closer to Allah

01:21:05--> 01:21:10

and I'm just making a very like again, insane assumption that it's neutral

01:21:15--> 01:21:34

so Allah subhana wa Tada and named the blessings that He gave you everything you enjoy, food, drink, the halal thing, the halal relationships, the love that you have to family members, and so on and so on, so forth. You think oh, that's Allah gave it to me so I can because I'm so important. I'm so special.

01:21:35--> 01:21:36

None.

01:21:38--> 01:21:40

All of that is part of your mission.

01:21:42--> 01:21:55

All of that should feed into your mission. All of that makes your Mission Impossible, successful. It either is either necessary, or it's complementary to your mission, it enhances your mission.

01:21:58--> 01:22:04

This is how we should see the blessings from Allah Subhana Allah Allah doesn't create randomly, Allah doesn't create things for nothing.

01:22:08--> 01:22:20

This this is not befitting of Allah Subhan Allah, Allah, Allah creates for a noble purpose, everything. There's nothing that is extra in this life. There's nothing that is neutral random, that has no meaning.

01:22:23--> 01:22:32

So this is why you shouldn't be asked about the name. Allah will ask you about every blessing he gave you. When did you do with it? How did you use it?

01:22:36--> 01:22:40

And the shift he says he's gonna ask you about thanking, being thankful being grateful

01:22:43--> 01:22:48

it was gonna have to be grateful. What is being grateful people think oh, you say Alhamdulillah

01:22:50--> 01:22:51

Alhamdulillah Quran Allah?

01:22:53--> 01:22:54

Is that Chicago?

01:22:56--> 01:23:02

Chicago is that you use it for the reason that Allah gave it you gave it to you that says

01:23:03--> 01:23:04

in action

01:23:05--> 01:23:06

and your lifestyle, that's sugar

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

that's sugar

01:23:14--> 01:23:16

and then saying thank you

01:23:17--> 01:23:21

there's more of like the icing on the cake.

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

But the real issue

01:23:25--> 01:23:28

is that you you use what Allah gave you

01:23:29--> 01:23:37

to worship Him to fulfill the purpose for which he created you that's why you're going to be asked about that

01:23:41--> 01:23:50

okay, so we'll stop here inshallah and we take a few courses I share as in 30 Right? I'm not mistaken I saw the screen

01:23:53--> 01:24:00

Yes, let's take a few questions inshallah for about 10 minutes try to keep them again to topic today just

01:24:03--> 01:24:04

questions

01:24:08--> 01:24:09

questions

01:24:17--> 01:24:27

for example, you have to deal with the competition. For example, like our coverage here like how can we use that like practically

01:24:28--> 01:24:29

worst

01:24:32--> 01:24:35

so this sister is asking question if someone has

01:24:36--> 01:24:46

particular gifts a natural gift or hobby or a skill, how can I use that for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala there is as many answers as many as there are people in the world.

01:24:48--> 01:24:52

So the brothers who are filming these, our shooting these

01:24:54--> 01:24:57

these lectures, the hot boys, whatever.

01:24:58--> 01:24:59

They are in a position

01:25:00--> 01:25:03

To make this an act of newness to Allah subhanaw taala.

01:25:04--> 01:25:08

Okay, so someone who is again, working in the media, let's say for example,

01:25:09--> 01:25:16

and they're using that to spread to make videos, audios, content, designs, right?

01:25:18--> 01:25:24

To spread, what is that, which is good to invite people to remind people, but again, after working as well on themselves,

01:25:25--> 01:25:29

not just doing that stuff, but then going against it yourself.

01:25:30--> 01:25:31

So that would be a good example.

01:25:33--> 01:26:05

There, like we live in a time when the population of the earth has reached something that never reached before. So there's a lot of potential, there's a lot of areas, there's a lot of ways of promoting good. So someone even drawing someone is very good with their words, writing, speaking, someone who's good with his social skills, right? There's always you can employ that all these skills are malleable. And

01:26:06--> 01:26:34

they can actually be they can be put in almost any kind of endeavor. But there are things there are things that although they are skills, but Allah Most likely put them in our way, as a test, just like Allah put the tree in Adams way, right? As it tests whether you truly, you know, trust Allah subhanaw taala, even when it doesn't make sense to your small mind, you don't understand the full story. Right?

01:26:36--> 01:26:37

So that you don't

01:26:39--> 01:26:49

you don't engage in them, especially if you have you can't come from a background that didn't know about this, that it was held on. And you learned it and you develop passion about it, like the same music, playing music,

01:26:50--> 01:26:53

musical instruments, and

01:26:54--> 01:27:10

see, but you know, I love it. And I, and I'm very good at it. Maybe I can use it for the sake of Allah. No. I know, there was a minority of scholars and it's growing, you know, at times, but it's a clearly incorrect opinion. Music is high.

01:27:11--> 01:27:49

There's enough in our tradition, there is enough evidence. There's enough evidence in our tradition that music is haram. But now when music is everywhere, as you walk in, in the mall, we say don't go into the mall. Or you're watching the news and you have to watch the news and there's some music in the background etc. This is called man let's be hillbilly why this has become something that is extremely common, unavoidable, and you're not seeking to you don't go into the mall to listen to music. You're not watching the news to listen to the background music, right or the documentary to listen to that music. So again, we say this is my full one and in fact has called solo forgettable

01:27:50--> 01:27:51

forgivable.

01:27:52--> 01:27:54

But to

01:27:57--> 01:28:02

say music is hella isn't mistake from some scholars. And

01:28:04--> 01:28:09

what's worse than that is actually start using it for dry reasons, it becomes more problematic.

01:28:10--> 01:28:20

Yeah, I know, some people that use you might say, some people are using it, and they're good, etc, etc, etc, etc. You know, a lot of the things that we have strong evidence that they have,

01:28:21--> 01:28:33

you know, the, the evil consequences of them, don't show on the short term. There are things that are haram, that the evil fruits of them

01:28:35--> 01:28:42

are not easily detectable, are not easily detectable. So they corrupt your heart and you don't know.

01:28:44--> 01:28:58

If they corrupt your heart, and and you have no clue. And you think you're doing good. And that happens a lot. So, even let's say it has become in these times a matter of debates.

01:28:59--> 01:29:25

You know what, someone who truly seeks Allah will be very cautious. You won't go and invest if you don't have much money, let's say you have $10,000 That's the savings of your life. And you know, there is there's a company where there's a chance that it could really make good profit, but there are big risks with that there. Is there a greater chances that it might just, you know, completely disintegrate and break down and you lose your money.

01:29:26--> 01:29:29

Are you going to put your life let's say 50,000

01:29:32--> 01:29:34

You going to put the 50,000 there or not?

01:29:36--> 01:29:40

Most people want to say at least you know with the same kind of

01:29:41--> 01:29:44

precaution approach your path to a loss paradigm.

01:29:47--> 01:29:48

Yeah, questions

01:29:53--> 01:29:54

you need to speak up

01:29:57--> 01:29:58

President's visit to Capitol

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

Hill.
