Surah Al borouge Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim, that is by the Heaven with all that is that it contains four of the sun and moon and other heavenly bodies that are indicative of the perfect mate mercy, vast knowledge and wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala. And by the Promised Day, namely the Day of Resurrection, on which Allah has promised to gather all creatures, bringing together the first and the last near and far, it cannot be changed for a law does not break his promise by the witness and that which is witnessed. This includes everyone who meets this description, that is one who sees and what is seen. What is attested to here is that dazzling signs of Allah, his great wisdom and His all

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

encompassing mercy

We had a few rioting, Maha materiala He will be his behemoth minion when he has a home Allah Who halacha home whatever other home for call Gucci That was horrible dude.

00:04:14--> 00:04:57

And it was said that what is attested to here is the words Cursed be the makers of the trench. And this is a supplication against them, praying that they may be doomed. These makers of the trench were disbelievers among whom lived some believers. The disbelievers put pressure on them to enter their religion, but the believers refuse to do so. So the disbelievers dug a trench in the ground and lit a fire in it. Then they sat around it and persecuted the believers exposing them to the fire. Whoever responded to their demands, they let they let him go. But whoever persisted in his faith, they threw him into the fire. This was an example of extreme hostility towards Allah and the

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

believers. Therefore Allah curse them this

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

destroyed them and promised them punishment and said curse be the makers of the trench. So Mufasa do that.

00:05:08--> 00:05:47

00:05:50--> 00:06:31

Then he tells us about the makers of the trench who led a blazing fire in it, for they sat beside it to witness what they did to the believers. This is one of the worst types of tyranny and hard heartedness because they combine stubborn rejection of the signs of Allah with fighting the believers and tormenting them with this heart wrenching torment, and being present to watch them being thrown into it. When the only grievance they had against the believers was something for which the ladder deserved to be praised, and through which they only sought to attain happiness, which was that they believed in Allah the Almighty the Praiseworthy, who possesses might through which he

00:06:31--> 00:07:16

subdues all things and He is deserving of all praise and of praise in all his words, attributes and actions. Under the law, whom will Kusama what he will Irby Hello Can I be the Salafi him to sort of Amanda key be Maliki Allahu either coalition in Shahid Illman was him and Wilbur Salah further FLR Hoffa Allah in Malta Meridiana Allah Allah He and you have to share with him and as usual Mokhtar did a woman early more unknown Jaime oho memory Kula they said he hadn't had in Soto mean during the evening Malik Oh, coffee early him and aloha Mojito.

00:07:42--> 00:08:27

To Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth as he created them and all who dwell in them. They are his slaves and he controls them as the owner controls what he owns. And Allah is Witness over all things because he knows, hears and sees all should these rebellious ones who oppose a law not fear less than my almighty, the omnipotent wreak vengeance or do they not realize that they are all slaves of Allah? And no one has any power over anyone else except by permission of the sovereign? Or is it hidden from them that Allah encompasses all their deeds and will require them for their deed for their actions? Neither disbeliever is deluded and the wrongdoer is ignorant and

00:08:27--> 00:08:48

blind to the straight path. Then Allah issues promises and warnings to them and offers them the opportunity to repent, as he says, literally, for those who persecute the believing men and believing woman, then do not repent, they will be the punishment of Hell. And they will be the punishment of the scorching fire. That is the severe burning punishment.

00:08:50--> 00:09:20

A husband may Allah have mercy on him said look at this generosity and kindness, they killed his close friends and those who obeyed him yet he is calling them to repent.

00:09:23--> 00:09:43

Having mentioned the punishment of the wrongdoers, Allah Now mentions the reward of the believers, but those who believes in their hearts and do righteous deeds in their physical actions will surely have gardens through which rivers flow that is that that is the great triumph through which they will attain the pleasure of Allah and His paradise

That is the punishment of those who commit crimes and great sins will indeed be severe, for he is vigilantly watching the wrongdoers as he says elsewhere, such as the punishment of your Lord. When he punishes the cities that are given to wrongdoing, the charity his punishment is painful and severe. So who would I 102 Verily, it is he who originates creation, then he then repeats it. That is He is the only one who initiates creation and repeats it and he has no partner in that.

00:12:33--> 00:13:17

And Allah subhanaw taala is loving towards his loved ones as he says elsewhere, people whom he loves and who love him. What is referred to hear is pure love. There is a subtle meaning here for alongside his name the loving Allah dude. He mentioned his name the oft forgiving a local food, so as to indicate that if the sinners repent to Allah and turn to Him, He will forgive their sins and love them, so that it cannot be said that he will forgive their sins but love will not be restored to them as some iREP erroneously suggested. Rather Allah rejoices over the repentance of his slave when he repents more than a man rejoices over his camo on which is his food and his drink, and all

00:13:17--> 00:13:59

that he needs on his journey, which he loses in the rugged and dangerous wilderness. So he despairs of it and lies down in the shade of a tree to await death. Then whilst he is in that state, his mount appears at his head, so he ceases its rains. Allah rejoices more over the repentance of his slave than this man rejoices over his mouth. And this is a great joy that cannot be surpassed. Fell in love with him. The Westerner was awful with that with that Adama blah, blah, who worked for a healer who was someone who also empty Nana would absolutely Majeed. I saw him would actually allow him and let him in automatically and who was he? SMRT well, although we'll see for him in this video

Rafi, for Indian Machida tune the law will match due to our Sofie we're Alana to her

00:14:22--> 00:14:59

to Allah be praised and pure love how great is His kindness and goodness how abundant His grace and favor the Lord of the Throne the glorious that is lord of the Mighty Throne which in its greatness encompasses the heavens and the earth, and the cosi in relation to the throne. The kursi is like a ring thrown into the wilderness compared to the rest of the earth. Allah singled out the throne for mentioned because of its greatness, and because it is the closest of all all creative things to him. The above is applicable if the word Majeed translated here as glorious

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

is understood to refer to the throne.

00:15:03--> 00:15:33

However it may be understood as referring to Allah subhanaw taala in which in which case it is indicative of how sublime and great his attributes are. So add on Lima you read a mama about the show and father who either are the sheep and Karla who come fair call when they say don't freak out and they may read in the law for Indian Mark Locati what are the three and four in the hula hoop deli era dirty ham in Mariah winning one more man will Allahu La MA in an era oddity while I'm Romania la homie Murad

00:15:36--> 00:16:19

he does whatever He wills that is what whatever He wills he does when he will wills a thing he says to it be and it is, no one does whatever He wills except Allah. If created beings want something they will inevitably find some who will help and some who will resist but Allah needs no helpers to do His will and there is no one who can resist whatever he wants. So mother couldn't fit he'd done that yeah and also to the manager to be heroes who who for call Hal attack a hadith will do no fear I will now with a mode.

00:16:58--> 00:17:42

Then Allah mentioned some of his deeds that confirm the soundness of that which His Messengers brought, Has there not come to you the story of the disbelieving hosts of Pharaoh and Sammut and how they rejected the messengers so Allah caused them to be among the doomed nail those who disbelieved persist in denial. That is, they persist in their stubborn denial, the signs do not benefit them at all, an exhortation is to no avail. And Allah encompasses them on all sides. That is, he encompasses them by his knowledge and might. This is like the verse in which he says, There li your Lord is ever vigilant. This is a stern warning to the disbelievers of the punishment of those who are in his

00:17:42--> 00:18:14

grasp. And under his control name, it is a Glorious Quran, that is it is comprehensive in its meanings and contains a great deal of goodness and knowledge inscribed in a Preserved Tablet that is present that is protected from any change, addition or subtraction, and is guarded against the devils. It is the preserve tablet in which Allah has written down all things. This is indicative of the majesty and greatness of the Quran. And its high esteem before Allah subhana wa Tada and Allah knows best.

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

Okay, so Surah two miraj again,

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

talks about an incident that happened.

00:18:24--> 00:18:35

And there is no agreement among the scholars of Tafseer as to exactly which incident or who, which nation this happened to.

00:18:37--> 00:18:43

But it seems that this, this kind of, of persecution happened repeatedly,

00:18:44--> 00:19:12

for believers. And in the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim, there's a few examples of populations annihilated by tyrants, who tried to force them to, again, embrace their disbelief, but the believers insisted, or remained firm on their faith. So, again, they were persecuted. And, you know, we tend today to think, oh, people just

00:19:14--> 00:19:54

killed people just like that. And it was easy. But it's not human dynamics are pretty much similar, you know, regardless of which age we live in, but maybe some of the details can change, but we're pretty much talking about the same human nature. So the modern man is not more civilized in terms of morality and standards than previous nations. And this whole thing about the Stone Age man, and and all of that is just literally is actually fiction, in the sense that they were a little bit behind what the modern man really is. And even in science and anthropology, anthropology, there has been a lot of research that actually shows that there is no change in the intelligence of man in the

00:19:54--> 00:19:57

documented history. It's pretty much the same.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

But the thing is here, we're talking

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

about morality. And again, this is about the very well known bias or Blyden blindness that humans have to their time.

00:20:09--> 00:20:26

Humans don't see the flaws of their time. Why? Because we are part of it, when you are part of a system, when you are swallowed by a system, it's very hard to really have a very good judgment of that. So you will tend to exaggerate certain negative things, and you would tend to underplay certain

00:20:28--> 00:20:55

negative things. And you would tend, we will do the same with with positive things, you'd either exaggerate some positives, and you would downplay some positives as well. So there's a lot of bias, because when you are part of a culture, and that's, that helps with a sense of loyalty, blind loyalty and blind following, people will just follow whatever. The thing is, if you just look at our time, our lifetime, most people here I would say

00:20:57--> 00:21:12

most of the people that I see here are above 20. So above 20, you've seen atrocities, millions of innocent people being killed under the name of what blink, bringing democracy liberation, et cetera, so many different names, right.

00:21:13--> 00:21:18

And just because it doesn't happen, where we live, it doesn't mean it's not there.

00:21:19--> 00:21:28

Just because it's not being reported properly by the media, it doesn't mean it's not. It's not vicious, and atrocious.

00:21:30--> 00:21:57

Humans of today have committed way, way more crimes and atrocities especially against populations more than previously in the previous histories. But again, so Allah subhanaw taala tells us about these believers who were persecuted by people who did not believe in his help. Again, who's the narrator of a Sierra, although, the, the, the writer of the book, probably the earliest complete book that we know about the Sierra

00:21:58--> 00:22:05

hamady knows how to call him Allah to Allah says this was some people of the Scripture in Yemen,

00:22:06--> 00:22:14

in MDM and so there was some believers and they had a king and Arab King, who was who know us or don't know us.

00:22:16--> 00:22:30

From him, yeah. And he embraced Judaism and he wanted to force part of the population to follow suit, but they refused. They were upon the religion of Asa Alia Salam, Islam,

00:22:31--> 00:23:15

and they rejected. And he just did to them what the salah mentioned he dug up trenches, he filled them with wood, filled the trenches with wood, and lit, huge fires, huge fires. And then he brought these innocent people. And again, you either accept our religion, the religion of the state, the religion of the state, right and the path of the state no matter what that is, it could be a traditional religion, or it could be a modern ideology. And if you don't agree, you will be persecuted in different ways in different degrees. And we will issue laws that will make your persecution legal.

00:23:17--> 00:23:18

That's the game humans play.

00:23:20--> 00:23:28

Right? So first, you will be demonized. You will be demonized, you'll be your reputation and your image will be tarnished

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

false accusations

00:23:32--> 00:23:38

taken advantage of certain events and things that happen, attach them to you create a very,

00:23:39--> 00:24:25

again, negative image of this person that you are actually a vampire. And you can't be treated as a human being then issuing other laws and legislations that really curb you know, the practice of your faith, and so on and so forth, that if you just want to be moral, you're already in a state of conflict with the legal system. Even if you say an innocent word, you are a criminal who's violating people's rights and things like that. And there are serious consequences, that eventually you can be prosecuted, you can go to prison for life, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. And then it leads again, eventually to what digging up trenches, and setting them on fire. And then, yeah, do you want to

00:24:25--> 00:24:33

follow civilization and modernity and sophistication and the truth? Or do you want to still live in the Dark Ages?

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

That's how it is. It's not like those people were so like, blatantly embracing false and saying, You have to believe in falsehood. Sometimes we have this very simplistic, you know, image that we create all these stories like we think are the king says, Believe in my falsehood and give up your truth, or I will throw you in the fire. No, it wasn't like that. It was all done.

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

politically correct, by the way, so humans can actually be very dangerous, if they don't believe in Allah.

00:25:07--> 00:25:26

If people don't believe in Allah, people start to mess with their morality and moral standards. You know, humans can become beasts that you can humans can rationalize anything, you can justify anything. And you don't have to go back in history, just look at the past, you know, 70 years, 80 years.

00:25:27--> 00:25:32

And look at how killing murdering millions of people was actually heroic.

00:25:33--> 00:25:58

But again, because we have bought into this culture and this kind of mindset, we don't see how evil that really is. Only when it turns against this, then we start to send so you send, we sense, the pain now, we can feel the heat is coming our direction, or now these things are evil. And that's again, that's how our desires, and what we love really blinds us to the truth. Okay.

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

Something very interesting about the solar is how Allah subhanaw taala talks about something that happened, the fact that happened in history, very serious thing, and how the believers remained firm, and they would rather be thrown in the fire and die in a very painful way.

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

Then do what then just give up their faith, even if it's lip service.

00:26:22--> 00:26:36

And that shows the strength of faith. And no one would opt to experience such pain and such a very painful again, death. Except of these people have something that brings them so much sweetness in return.

00:26:37--> 00:27:02

And that shows you that when you actually build up when you build a rich spiritual life in an authentic way, not only spiritual thing, but truly according to Islam. When you build that tough one a dimension of taqwa, you know the impact of circumstances upon you diminishes. You have something else in the experience of life, you have to have another dimension where you experience life on completely different terms.

00:27:04--> 00:27:07

And that's part of the advantage of a man and Taqwa.

00:27:08--> 00:27:26

So Allah subhanaw taala puts this incident in context, Allah didn't say what it was horrible of God he didn't start with the surah Okay, let's have a look at those may they be killed or destroyed the people who dug the trench. Now, Allah subhanaw taala put it in context. Allah says what Cena either till borrowed

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

can disguise and their magnificent creation

00:27:31--> 00:27:33

and the stations

00:27:34--> 00:28:07

in them, and the structure that they are built according to look at all of this magnificent creation was somebody that in a bottle, Julio Minnie Mouse, and the promise day, the day of judgment, we're sure he didn't want to shoot could be again interpreted many things. Then Allah subhanaw taala brings this brings the story, why to contextualize it, that you should not look at any event in life away from the context of life and what it really means. And this is where people suffer a lot. By the way, people suffer a lot because their understanding of life and their place in life is corrupted.

00:28:08--> 00:28:54

In this general what generally people talk about life on what they should expect from life and who they are and how they should they should live their life and how they should deem themselves and see themselves and feel about themselves, as all makes us extremely fragile. breakable. It says sets us up to really struggle and suffer in life. Whereas when you develop the right mindset, and that's what a man is, a man has the right outlook on life. So the right correct worldview, from the Creator of the heavens and the earth. That's the way to see life. Any other worldview is corrupted, is distorted is inaccurate. It's filled with deceptions and lies. So what that does is does it sets you

00:28:54--> 00:28:55

had this great disadvantage.

00:28:56--> 00:29:06

So you will suffer a lot. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, see these things in these very painful events, put them in context, and the context start before them and even after them.

00:29:07--> 00:29:21

To the point that Allah Subhana Allah says, After all of this, Allah says, about those who again, you might, and this is a good example to see you know, what happens to innocent people with the persecution that happens when you are unable to help them

00:29:22--> 00:29:31

you as an individual or even as communities or even as societies, and as laymen. You're unable to do much politically speaking.

00:29:32--> 00:29:40

So what how should you understand this, these atrocities and what's going on? You need to put them in context, otherwise they'll be extremely traumatizing that could really trouble you.

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

Allah subhanaw taala says in the Lydian effort and all Momineen Minetti to Melania to Beaufort Armada Bucha Hana Mala Mala Bulgaria, those who have again persecuted the believers tried to force them out of their faith fellow when they did not repent. Allah did not close the door for Toba.

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

further home, addabbo, Johanna. Malanga will have the punishment of Jahannam and the punishment of the burning blazing Fire. Allah says that's the end. And as they say in the article, more will be our team, the reality of matters. It becomes apparent or established, after they run their full course. When they reach their end their conclusion, now you can judge something, you can't judge a story where you are halfway through, you can't judge a chapter before you complete it. Or you can't judge a book just by reading a couple of chapters. Everything you see in life is an unfinished story. It's still unfolding. So don't judge it. Don't say, Oh, why does Allah allow this to happen?

00:30:41--> 00:30:51

Why does this happen? Why does this person suffer? Why does this happen to me, all of this is an unfinished story. And you are impatient, and you want the story to conform to your impatience.

00:30:53--> 00:31:06

There is a big thing that is happening in existence, the story of life is extremely wise and deep, and powerful and serious. And we are just like children, like imagine just a group of children and someone like

00:31:07--> 00:31:17

a world class storyteller is telling them a very intriguing, beautiful story that has so many powerful, profound, helpful lessons that can really help them in their life in the future.

00:31:19--> 00:31:26

And just because these kids, they're so used to, again, video games, they used to cartoons, and very short videos that are very intense.

00:31:28--> 00:31:32

You know, they can't sit patiently, right, so this story is taking too long.

00:31:33--> 00:32:03

And then they will start interjecting into the story. Why is it such a profound, beautiful, wonderful story, but they don't see the value in it, why but they want to interrupt it as well. They wouldn't have their say, but they say will actually, you know, deprive them of the benefit. That's what we are doing with Allah subhanaw taala. And humans think because they have learned a little bit of science here discovered, made a few discoveries of a very small fraction of the reality around them. And they have managed to put these principles to use in order to make some technological advancement and some,

00:32:05--> 00:32:26

again, you know, add to life's luxuries and the quality of life, people think that's it that we have reached the like, we have reached unparalleled levels of knowledge and wisdom. But that's not the reality. That's not the truth of Us. So Allah says, Those people will have a punishment, they will everything, all the skills will be settled.

00:32:27--> 00:32:44

Everyone Everyone will get even then Allah Subhana Allah says, Those people that you think are suffering, Allah says in the Lilina, M and wham, you know, slightly hearty, the hum Genet integrity mentality, hell and how daddy, California will come here, those who have believed and have

00:32:45--> 00:32:56

done righteous deeds, they will have gardens beneath which rivers flow, then he can focus will campaign that is the real victory, that is the biggest win.

00:32:57--> 00:33:04

So the reason why we are so agitated, and again, an impatient with the suffering here, and we need to put a close to it.

00:33:05--> 00:33:18

Part of it comes from our weak faith in the Hereafter, and its inevitability. And if we were to be honest with ourselves, you would find that it's actually lack of faith, it's actually lack of faith.

00:33:19--> 00:33:46

When you know, something is going to come to a very good end. And you are certain about it, you can even when you let's say you watch a movie, and you see really like the hero in the movie has been tested in very bad ways. Knowing that the movie, being reassured that the movie will end up in good shape for this hero will help you go through it and put up with the great inconvenience of what the hero is going through.

00:33:48--> 00:34:00

But that's because you're certain of the outcome. But when you are not certain of the outcome, you actually will be tempted, you know, to you know, abandoned watching the movie, you leave it halfway.

00:34:03--> 00:34:32

So oftentimes, you know, we think oh, no, I'm just sensitive. I'm so he's so humane. I'm concerned about the suffering of people. I can't put up with it. But you actually, although this might, there might be some goodness and some empathy real there, but it needs to be balanced with faith. If you truly have faith, that on the Day of Judgment, everything will be settled, everyone will be given the right. Every oppressor will be held accountable. And the wrongdoers will be in the Hellfire

00:34:36--> 00:34:41

then it's a story. It's a perfect story that is unfolding. And you know that you should interject in it.

00:34:42--> 00:34:48

If you there's something that you can do that Allah allows that Allah invites us invites us to do, then you can go ahead and do it.

00:34:50--> 00:34:58

But there are so many things that happen in the world that we have no capacity to change and this is a fact that we need to be aware of. We are not gods we slaves.

00:35:01--> 00:35:24

Only Allah's Will is perfect and and materializes or becomes a reality, your will, if Allah allows it, it could materialize, it could materialize completely or partially, or it could materialize. You know, it could not materialize at all that Allah is universe Allah's creation.

00:35:25--> 00:35:30

It's not your creation, you don't have a say here you can try doing your best. But that's it.

00:35:31--> 00:35:45

So Allah says that equal function can be that is the biggest win the biggest victory. So don't think these people are losers. And the prophets of salaam told us that the shade the person who dies for the sake of Allah, and these are many categories of people

00:35:47--> 00:35:49

that they will be,

00:35:50--> 00:35:58

they will fly in paradise. And Allah will ask them, Allah will say to them, what you know, wish for something, and I'll grant you your wish.

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

And, you know, they think, Oh Allah, you have put us in paradise. He said, make her wish, they would say, we wish that you send us back, and that we die for your sake again, because of the honor and the dignity and the sweetness that is given to the person who again, who is martyred for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And then we look at that and say, Oh, that's painful, because we're looking from this end.

00:36:24--> 00:36:37

Things look different from the other end. How do we get to the other end? That's what faith is. That's what the Quran tells us. That's what trust in Allah really is. This is what our fitrah imparts. But again, we're not allowing it.

00:36:38--> 00:36:41

Then Allah subhanaw taala, again, puts this in the context of

00:36:44--> 00:37:20

that don't let this immediate reality that is very compelling, that might make you feel you know, helpless, and that the truth will not prevail. And this is like the end of the story. Allah says in about the shutdown began sad. In Hawaii will be the over you ate. You know, the destruction the might of your Lord is tremendous. He's the one who initiates life and he's the one who creates it again. So all of this is under control. is under control. Don't think this petty might have that the creation has is something it's nothing.

00:37:21--> 00:37:29

And as he mentioned, because here he mentioned, the louche allows you the Prophet SAW Selim tells us in the authentic hadith, that Methodists and melotti will

00:37:31--> 00:37:58

will fill out oshi QMF. Eddie hella Platon, Viva la, all the creation all this universe that we know it that is below the hourish of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And again, this is the universe that they are beginning to discover, right. They are beginning to discover and they are talking now about what what is the latest numbers that they have reached in terms of light years, that they are detecting Some? Some things what?

00:37:59--> 00:38:00


00:38:02--> 00:38:26

35 million, billion light years. Imagine how like, even your mind can't really get around this idea of this distance. All of this is what Kahala Putin V Vela what is the Fila is a huge deserts sorry, huge desert. You know, Rommel Hari, the Empty Quarter in Saudi Arabia, it's more like a continent and desert or the Sahara.

00:38:29--> 00:38:36

Imagine again, let's say a quarter of a let's say Ontario, a desert. That would be a fella

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

and the written

00:38:39--> 00:38:42

a ring just a ring that you wear on your fingers.

00:38:44--> 00:38:48

Throw it in that huge amount of piece of land.

00:38:49--> 00:38:56

The this is the ratio of the size of the heavens and the earth the sky isn't the earth

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


00:38:59--> 00:39:01

the Throne of Allah subhanaw taala

00:39:02--> 00:39:05

then we're talking about what superpower is.

00:39:07--> 00:39:08

Petit right or liability?

00:39:09--> 00:39:14

Superpowers we're talking about superpowers the oh there, you can't defeat them.

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


00:39:18--> 00:39:29

So again, Allah subhanaw taala puts this in context and Allah says for add on Lima Yuri, Allah does what He wills don't let anything bring doubt to your heart to your mind.

00:39:30--> 00:39:36

And Allah mentions in many swords, we're only Lila home and I give them time.

00:39:37--> 00:39:44

I let the mess around. Let them mess around because Allah wants to bring out the full their full evil so that they get the punishment in full.

00:39:48--> 00:39:54

Because Allah only punishes people based on what they do. So Allah allows this evil to, you know,

00:39:55--> 00:39:57

play up completely

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

and say why

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

Yeah, these people get the punishment that they deserve and the people who suffer as a result of that they get the honor that they deserve.

00:40:07--> 00:40:15

So again, we don't want to look at life from a very tiny small corner and think, Oh, we can really suggest how life should be.

00:40:17--> 00:40:23

That's a very, that's an extremely arrogant position. No matter how innocent or humane it sells.

00:40:26--> 00:40:27

The prophets Allah, Allah mentions

00:40:30--> 00:40:44

that Allah subhanaw taala allocates a high position in paradise for someone, but this person does not do much to get to that to qualify to that position. So the prophets are some says Faryab tele Hill

00:40:45--> 00:40:51

for your spear for you believer who eat in Allah. Let us be your enemy and men Zilla to

00:40:54--> 00:41:01

fill Jannetty the raw Julian Lyon blue Wahhabi Amory, Feb 21st birthday you believe who?

00:41:05--> 00:41:10

So Allah Subhana Allah strikes them with hardship by means of one oppressive people.

00:41:12--> 00:41:36

You cannot have Allah subhanaw taala again, he's the ultimate creator. We say you kill two birds with one stone with Allah subhanaw taala It's like a It's a very interconnected world where again, it's not with one stone if you like, just although it's a human example, but just tells you the intricacy with one stone with one thing Allah subhanaw taala you know, makes an infinite number of wisdoms materialize

00:41:37--> 00:41:45

but then we work our small minds we try to, you know, suggest how the world should be, how the world could be a better place.

00:41:46--> 00:41:47


00:41:49--> 00:41:59

So, yeah, so provinces so Allah Subhana Allah tries him, so he's patient, so he qualifies. So you're not going to do that on your own initiative. Allah is gonna get you to do it.

00:42:01--> 00:42:09

And the Prophet I think, I think it's a hadith I'm not sure, but I believe it's narrations either from the professor or the companions. But anyways, the meaning is authentic,

00:42:10--> 00:42:12

that the people

00:42:13--> 00:42:27

who lived an easy life on the Day of Judgment, they would see the people who suffered people who had a lot of pain in their life, and the reward that they get the people who had an easy life with the wish

00:42:28--> 00:42:33

their flesh was cut with pliers and swords

00:42:34--> 00:42:35

to get that reward

00:42:38--> 00:42:54

so again, from this side of death, realize that your vision is very very distorted is very biased, so don't make it don't make judgments that have eternal and infinite consequences about something you know very little about.

00:42:59--> 00:43:01

Then Allah subhanaw taala says,

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

again to reassure the hearts

00:43:07--> 00:43:10

attack a hadith filled with a mode

00:43:11--> 00:43:29

buried within a calf roofie Tigers Ebola homie, why haven't you heard the stories of frown? For 114 There was no one to fight against him, no one even no rivals, who was like an absolute monarch. And he only he said, I am your Lord. I'm the most high

00:43:30--> 00:43:37

and arboricola That's what he said. And he enslaved when he saw him and he abused the people

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

and Allah destroyed him with what with an army? No.

00:43:45--> 00:43:50

Again because automatically we think or a strong army superpower what does it need superpower

00:43:51--> 00:43:56

The only thing that will destroy it is an equal or more powerful, you know superpower.

00:43:58--> 00:44:06

But you know Allah subhanaw taala you know does what he wants through means that we can't even think about because we are limited even in the means that we think about

00:44:07--> 00:44:16

Allah wanted to destroy around by what drowning allowing him and his army making him and his army drown in the ocean. Done he was gone.

00:44:18--> 00:44:23

It was a matter of seconds. And he was gone. For I went out with him the same thing for mod

00:44:25--> 00:44:32

and they are the ones who carved their houses in the mountains. Magnificent. MATT You know what they did was magnificent.

00:44:35--> 00:44:45

What happened to them when they killed the the sheikh camo which is the miracle that was given to Prophet SAW Allah and Allah destroy them.

00:44:47--> 00:44:52

For them, they marry him are born with me and Allah, Allah destroying them.

00:44:53--> 00:44:54


00:44:55--> 00:44:58

so if you think that Allah is not going to

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


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

restored justice, then just look, you have a lot of examples. You have a lot of examples in history and the story is not yet complete, there's much more to come. So Subhanallah This is a very powerful way. I think the solar really gives us a methodology to see,

00:45:16--> 00:45:32

to process events that are extremely challenging when you see innocent people suffering when they see tyrants, destroying populations and things like that. When you see again, people upon disbelief, why do they have all this power all this might and they are able to exercise all this kind of

00:45:34--> 00:45:57

persecution and oppression on the believers. Why? The Prophet SAW Selim says in Allah Hi Europa dunya Raman your head volumen lie ahead. What are your thoughts? In Dalaman your head? Allah does Allah gives this dunya to those he loves and those he doesn't love the one he hates, the ones he hates? And who are these disbelievers, those who do evil oppressors.

00:45:58--> 00:46:02

But he only gives the alpha to those who believe who those he loves.

00:46:03--> 00:46:14

And cheerful Imam says Rahim, Allah Tala expounded more and spoke in detail about love. And why dude, the name of Allah, which is pure love.

00:46:15--> 00:46:18

And Allah subhanho To Allah loves the believers, Allah loves what's good.

00:46:20--> 00:46:21

Allah knows what's good.

00:46:23--> 00:46:28

And Allah loves and is loved. And this is true love in a way that fits Allah's majesty.

00:46:32--> 00:46:49

And Muslims go into extreme some of them say oh no, Allah doesn't love because love is like an emotional, state, soft state. And it should not be ascribed to Allah. Allah says in the Quran about himself. His name is Allah dude. And we'll do it again is the purest form of love.

00:46:50--> 00:46:54

And he says your head go home or your head bone out. He loves them and they love him.

00:46:57--> 00:47:10

So that so some, some Muslims go to an extreme and they say no, there is no love what love means you're either to lessen the willingness to be generous to them, or to to treat them nicely. That's what love means.

00:47:11--> 00:47:12

It doesn't mean that.

00:47:13--> 00:47:24

On the opposite side, you find some Muslims. I'm not sure if they're Muslims, but some, some people ascribe to Islam and they say, Allah loves you. How do you know?

00:47:25--> 00:47:27

That's a very serious claim.

00:47:28--> 00:47:31

Allah loves the believers do I know that I'm a believer?

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

You won't know. You really won't know.

00:47:37--> 00:47:41

We are hoping that we are believers Imam has an industry a man came to him and he said hello and the moment

00:47:43--> 00:47:45

you are a Mormon, you have faith

00:47:47--> 00:47:48

called a man who a man

00:47:50--> 00:48:12

or a man a man will be Omala equity he will come to be what also the HE WILL Yeoman after a worker that will work either reify the usury phenomenon be radical. Eman is two and talking about two events. Imagine that you believe in Allah and the angels and the Last Day and the books and the messengers and the cadaver of Allah then I believe in all of this

00:48:14--> 00:48:16

a man a man

00:48:19--> 00:48:20

by the momentum be that equally

00:48:22--> 00:48:32

I forgot how he described the other level of Eman but if you mean a man is like truly have faith and accepted by Allah further at the

00:48:34--> 00:48:43

butt as to the that I am accepted by Allah. I truly have absolute faith and no issues with my Eman. I don't know. I don't know.

00:48:44--> 00:49:01

So this kind of confirmation some people say Allah loves you, Allah loves you don't be scared, especially when they see someone in emotional say, you know, don't worry, Allah loves you. Now the emotional state of that person became became more important than the truth. And you heal them with a lie. You don't know you don't have knowledge whether Allah loves them or not.

00:49:04--> 00:49:30

So we need to be careful. Allah subhanaw taala loves the believers will can't make a confirmation that we believe they can't make a confirmation. And we have plenty of statements from the companions. And the Quran clearly indicates that you cannot confirm that 100% That you are a believer you can strive this is the point. And this is why you have our job which is hope and Allah otherwise you'd have certainty. I have faith and solver.

00:49:31--> 00:49:48

That's not how it is. Why because the reality of the heart is even concealed from us. It's your heart, but you don't know it very well. And the prophets are seldom said in the Apollo bobina as by any means. You can liberal How can you finish that the hearts are between two of the fingers of Allah. He turns them as he as he likes.

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

And Allah the way Allah tells the heart is based on justice, wisdom, and mercy. But the thing is, you can't guarantee anything.

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

You can't guarantee anything until

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

When you die and meet Allah then that's it. It's different now.

00:50:04--> 00:50:11

As long as you are alive in this dunya you can't, there's no guarantee. There is no guarantee. So it says someone, Allah loves you.

00:50:12--> 00:50:26

You're talking about a matter of the unseen. It couldn't be true, but it could be false. But you are speaking when you're speaking without knowledge, and that's deception. So to say Allah loves you, Allah loves his creatures. That's not Islam, by the way.

00:50:28--> 00:50:30

So there is a murderer,

00:50:31--> 00:50:36

someone who commits all evil, his heart is full of filth. He's a human being right? Allah loves him.

00:50:39--> 00:50:40

Allah loves that person.

00:50:42--> 00:50:53

Allah says, hola, hola, humble kathiria And Allah doesn't love the kuffaar doesn't love them. So how do you say Allah loves everyone? That's a lie against Allah violation against Allah.

00:50:55--> 00:51:07

Some people think, oh no, for Islam to be the truth and to be good. Allah has to love everyone. That's shapen you know, feeling that stuff in your heart shape and feeling that stuff deceiving you?

00:51:09--> 00:51:13

Allah's love is associated with the truth and with what's good.

00:51:14--> 00:51:29

Allah loves which what's true and what's good you align your heart and your life with truth and good you get as much of the love of Allah period. Can you be 100% sure of it, you can't. You can only hope and do your best.

00:51:30--> 00:51:42

And we've mentioned many times previously how many of the companions said if I put one foot in Jana I would still not be we, you know, be at rest until I put both my feet in Jana Abubakar Leilani said that.

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

I don't know.

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

Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala says

00:51:53--> 00:51:57

in the Quran, what better Allah home mean Allah He met me according to Cebu.

00:51:58--> 00:52:12

And you know, they saw from Allah some things became apparent to them from Allah things they never expected. And Allah says in the Quran, Allah Luna Bo combibloc Serena, Olivia nobleness will highlight in dunya

00:52:14--> 00:52:41

shall we not tell you are the people whose last is the greatest those Alladhina Walesa, you their actions, their deeds have been misguided. It will last they were not based on the truth. So they had actions and works and they did things say is so much hard work. Wellness at home Phil Hyatt in dunya in this worldly life, well homie, I said wanna anom yes or no sooner and they thought that they were doing good.

00:52:43--> 00:52:47

So how do you turn around? Oh, Allah knows you don't don't cry Allah loves you.

00:52:48--> 00:52:56

Subhan Allah we play with Allah Subhan Allah and the deen of Allah just like that as a series, that's not the you're not, you're not being empathic.

00:52:59--> 00:53:01

That's a criminal act.

00:53:02--> 00:53:22

And I know this will come as a shock to some of your criminal acts. What are you talking about? Yes, because, again, we're not giving Allah protect individual rights. Allah is just like the last thing on our minds. The most important thing for us to be too politically correct, sensitive to people's emotions, and very considerate Allah, forget about Allah, we can use them as we like.

00:53:24--> 00:53:34

What's the difference between us and people who messed up their religion? wasted their religion wasted the truth? You were created for Allah, you were given this life for Allah.

00:53:36--> 00:54:14

Right? This is not an invitation not to be empathic, or respectful or no, but we need to put things where they truly belong. Don't say something about Allah. That is not true. Because by the way, you will mess around with this. That's going to create a lot of damage in other areas that are not visible to you now. That's the thing. It's not like it's an isolated violation. And that's it. It's quarantine. No, you will mess with a truth big truth like that. I'm telling you, it's like an it's like a web of connections. You pull one from its place, you create a huge rip and everything else. You create disturbance everywhere.

00:54:18--> 00:54:28

So we don't play with by saying things that are not true about Allah subhana what Allah says, well, in the Mahabharata, Bielsa Hashem Allah

00:54:29--> 00:54:40

will acknowledge who you here will help. 123 COVID Lahemaa Nunez will be here Suparna one to Hulu Allah Allah Hema, Allah to Allah. Allah mentioned the things that he made haram.

00:54:41--> 00:54:43

Again, evil things evil deeds and

00:54:45--> 00:54:46


00:54:48--> 00:54:57

Whatever you associate partners with Allah and that you see about Allah that which you don't have true knowledge about.

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

So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide us

00:55:01--> 00:55:07

And the little bit that we went through sort of bullish today we can take a couple of questions in Charlotte and please keep them

00:55:08--> 00:55:12

around the topic inshallah that we had today questions

00:55:16--> 00:55:17


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

from the

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


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

someone who's

00:55:31--> 00:55:31

been tested

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


00:55:35--> 00:55:37

when it comes to the lizard brain

00:55:45--> 00:55:46

can we say what?

00:55:49--> 00:55:52

Okay, so the brother says the prophets of Samson Hadith.

00:55:53--> 00:56:00

Allah Who Coleman who are the other wedding, I think that is more accurate Billa who identify

00:56:01--> 00:56:14

with Abdullah Abdullah Yusuf Minho, if Allah loves the person, Allah will test them. So if you see someone who prays and seems to be good, and they are tested, does that mean a lot of them? Same thing we can't confirm?

00:56:15--> 00:56:18

Allah tests people, for many reasons

00:56:19--> 00:56:27

could be to correct them. It could be to punish them. It could be to elevate them, that Allah thing and we shouldn't get there.

00:56:28--> 00:56:59

So what should we do just strive or judgment is not our business. You see, but we can when we say your agenda, who then sha Allah Who there's good science, and we hope for him that he's inshallah being tested for good reason. Yeah. So we wish good for them. And we hope good for them but no confirmation and we don't concern ourselves with whether Allah loves them, Allah accepted them, etc. That's not not to us. And this really doesn't help us. Yeah. Okay, one more question.

00:57:01--> 00:57:02

Okay, a few hands.

00:57:03--> 00:57:13

Okay, who would yield to the others so we have salt. Okay. You give to her? Like, go ahead, sister. Hello, sweetie. Let's go ahead.

00:57:14--> 00:57:15


00:57:23--> 00:57:25

you need to speak up, I really can't hear.

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

Just the last bit so you said Shall trials be welcomed? Or what?

00:58:18--> 00:58:43

Okay, okay. It's a good question, actually. So the sister says, On the Day of Judgment, the people who were who had relatively easy life there would look at people who went through suffering and they were rewarded immensely, that they wish that they themselves went through a lot of pain so they could get similar reward. Does that mean that we welcome suffering? So, actually, scholars have spoken about this in many ways, let me put it this way.

00:58:46--> 00:59:01

But let me put it in two ways. First way what the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, before one battle, some of the younger companions, they were so excited to meet the enemy and fight. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam said to them, and probably this was in,

00:59:03--> 00:59:06

in Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia

00:59:08--> 00:59:11

that the prophets of salaam said to them, let me know

00:59:13--> 00:59:45

what I can either lovely to move home first bill, do not seek to meet your enemy. Do not call trial upon yourself, because you don't know if you can survive it. You don't know if you can actually keep your faith in it. It's a trial. So don't invite it. Don't seek it. Avoided I shall be Allah when I said, knocked out of us hula hula was also the main emirate in lokta, a Salah Alma Mata Mia Khalifa, the prophet sent them every time he was given choice between two things he would choose the easiest, unless it's haram unless it's a sin.

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

So we should not seek trial or invited or even expose yourself to it at all should actually avoid it at all costs. But there are trials when they come to you the presented the problem said well, I can either pay to move

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

First battle, but if you happen to meet the enemy in the battlefield, now, you know, be patient.

01:00:08--> 01:00:44

So this is the way we deal with it, we don't invite it, we don't seek it, we don't welcome it. We don't look forward to it. Because we don't know. Some people invited trials upon themselves and they failed it and they lost their faith. So it's a very dangerous territory. We don't want to go there. But if we are pushed there by the paddock, and this will lead me to the other way. By Kedah you could not push it away, it's upon you. Then trust that Allah will help you go through it. This is the way and this way they say you will deal with it based on al Qaeda and Al Amal, el amor is that you busy yourself with doing what Allah loves and what Allah wants from you. These are the

01:00:44--> 01:00:51

obligations Allah a bad, the good deeds, whether they are personal, social, etc, there's loads of them.

01:00:52--> 01:00:53

Whereas the other

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

when it comes to you

01:00:59--> 01:01:40

what you can, again, logically and reasonably push away push away. But what you can't change, then you become satisfied with it in the sense Rayleigh, you accept the fact that Allah brought it to you. But But as long as you can push against it, do a Go ahead, whatever you can, someone is tested with an illness, terminal illness, or now it's the fact that we embrace this illness and enjoy it. No, that's not how it is. It's a trial. And it was, you don't have a choice about it. But maybe you can mitigate a lot of the symptoms and the damage by managing your maybe diet, your medication, your lifestyle, etc. Do all you can

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

to push against the other that is unpleasant that causes you pain, you need to push against it. But busy yourself with the AMA which is the legislation, the commands the things that Allah loves. And with this, you can navigate life, but you should not invite trial upon yourself at all. This is something that you should not and there is actually in Surah Nisa, it's spoken about negatively. Allah says Allah and Allah Allah Allah the Nepeta la humko for IDEA como que masala, aka Fela Kuti bury him Alta luta Willa, Willa Palomino.

01:02:13--> 01:02:21

Haven't you seen to the people that before, when Muslims were still weak? Allah prevented them from engaging in warfare.

01:02:22--> 01:02:25

Even if people try to engage you in warfare, don't

01:02:27--> 01:02:32

only do the necessary to save your life, defend yourself personally, but don't engage in proper warfare at all.

01:02:34--> 01:03:04

So these people would come to the problem why? Why are we humiliated? Why do we accept the being, you know, the weaker side of this? Why don't we fight against when we initiate something against them? Why don't we take them by surprise, the prophets also said in Neelam Marbury, I was not commanded, I was not given the permission to engage in warfare. But they said, you know, the circumstances are conducive for an attack, a surprise attack. person said no, I was not invited to do this. So these people insisted, again,

01:03:05--> 01:03:51

but eventually, when Allah made warfare and defense at that time and obligation upon the Muslims, these very people who were impatient at the beginning, you know, they were not happy with the decision to engage in warfare. Now, they were calculating what the possibility of death, the possibility of loss, the possibility of wound and injury. So, they actually will, they said, Why did Allah made you know, fighting obligation upon us now, look at the discrepancy, look at the opposite attitude, that shows that a person who invites calamity upon themselves is not coming from a good place, love of Allah and obedience and humility before Allah does not lead the person to seek trial

01:03:51--> 01:04:11

and there must be something personal, but it's subtle and hidden. So this would be the general approach inshallah JazakAllah halen for coming out today and joining us in this halacha with Nila, we are going to go into continue next Friday. And again, reminder we will start according to the new time 730 The evening

01:04:13--> 01:04:25

and make a couple of minutes left. It's the last hour in Joomla. Make that for yourself and your Muslim brothers and sisters, about a cloth eco masala and Mahamadou. It was a hobby as you may
