Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali was Hobie
Loma Linda Maya and found out when found Abby Madeline to now was in our honeymoon in nachio Unternehmen Hakeem.
So we are reading the Tafseer of salats model Surah of dominion
and I believe we reached first number 12 Imam Sadiq Rahim Allah to Allah.
By Allah I will give a shout on average him in the Lydian as shown down below either home mouthfeel or to add your own carrier grandmother Cara her little Austria and Fajr dakara her letters to other in Avila for color in the Lydian is shown down below EB a few Jimmy

Having mentioned the situation of the Doom evildoers, Allah Now mentions the situation of the righteous and blessed, rarely those whose fear their Lord unseen, that is, in all circumstances, even in situations where no one can see them, except Allah, they do not commit acts of disobedience towards him, and they do not fall short and regard to that which he has enjoined upon them will have forgiveness and if Allah forgives their sins, He will protect them from the evil thereof and protect them from the punishment of Hell. And they will have a great reward what which is that which is what Allah has prepared for them in paradise of eternal bliss, a vast domain ongoing pleasures enjoyment
of all that they're that they desire, palaces, lofty dwellings, beautiful hood and servants. And even greater than that will be the pleasure of the Most Gracious which Allah will bestow upon the people of paradise. Okay, so the comparison you'll find in the Quran, there's a lot of comparisons, there's always a comparison. Why because Subhanallah with comparison,
facts become more obvious, they become more accentuated, and that helps us understand them, and benefit from them. And as the Arab poet says, well, Luke, do you have a hero who's now Luke do will be licked the HA, that's me as well as you.
So the opposite shows, clearly, you know, it's opposite. It demonstrates the sharpness of the comparison accentuates the differences were believed they had at the beginning of the show. And then he says, things get more clarified, more accentuated when they are compared to their opposites. So comparison is actually a very strong way to emphasize a point to emphasize a point.
The second point here is that he's mentioned that all of the blessings of Allah in Jannah the greatest of them is riba Allah,
Allah being pleased with them. Allah Subhana Allah been pleased with this is the highest engine and when Allah is pleased with them, he offers them you know, the the privilege and the honor of looking at him of looking at him or seeing him on the day of judgment. Okay, we continue call what as I said rucola calm which will be hitting it won't be that sudo Allah Allah moment halacha who are looking for heavier harder if bottlemen Allah Hey BCIT enemy he was remodeled fee for all one zero COVID accom which will be a Kulu hustler on the de la him in her coffee so in our it might be that your sudo IV Murphy Hammond and the Yeti will era that okay fair enough while it would have been allotted

That's a cool minute. The Annabelle had turned on you the whole Macquarie theatre was solid behind it had been gelida while maklumat in Ibiza.
hear Allah speaks of the vastness of his knowledge and his all encompassing knowledge of subtleties, whether you conceal your speech or declare it openly, that is, it is all the same to him and nothing is hidden from Him. Verily He knows well what is in people's hearts with all their intentions and wishes. So how about their words and deeds which are heard and seen? Then Allah says, giving rational evidence for his knowledge, how could He who created not know his own creation? How could the One who created all of creation and perfected it and made it well not know it, when he is the knower of subtleties, the all aware, whose knowledge is so subtle that he knows what is hidden in
people's hearts and minds, all that is concealed secret and unseen. And it is he who knows what is said privately and that which is yet more hidden of unspoken thoughts. The Divine Name unlawfully, translated here as the Nora of subtleties, also has another meaning which refers to his subtle kindness. He is the one who is most kind to his slave and close and close friend, in a subtle manner, for He bestows upon him kindness from where he does not expect, and protects him from evil, where he does not realize he elevates him to the highest status by means that never even crossed the mind of the individual, to the extent to the extent that he may not, he may even put him through
hardship, so that by means of it, he made reach sublime goals and a noble status.
Okay, so Allah emphasizes again, his dominion, his power, his mind, Al Mulk, the surah is a model. So Allah subhanaw taala emphasizes his control his dominion,
his authority over everything. So part of that is actually that Allah knows everything in his dominion. Allah knows everything, everything, nothing is hidden from Allah, what we can see what we reveal all of that is equal to Allah subhanaw taala in terms of knowledge, and you know, there is something that we tend to actually
so when it comes to Allah's knowledge, there's a common mistake. There's a common mistake, we tend to project human knowledge and the dynamics of human knowledge on Allah.
For us, knowledge is learned. For us humans, knowledge is acquired, we acquire knowledge with Allah, there is no acquiring of knowledge.
Allah doesn't acquire knowledge, there is no new knowledge to Allah. Allah knew everything eternally. So there's no learning.
There's no learning. I know, it's obvious, but actually, many times when we are often when, when we talk about the knowledge of Allah, it seems as if all things reveal themselves to Allah know, know what happened, Allah knows it and what didn't happen, Allah equally knows it. It's the same. It's for us that's hidden. It's for us that it hasn't happened. It's for us that is still in the unseen but with Allah, it's all the same. It's all to him equal. And it's not like before creating for creating, Allah didn't know it. Allah knew it for eternity. from eternity, Allah knew everything. So there is no learning. There's nothing, nothing surprises Allah, there's nothing new to Allah. Allah
knows all of this. Allah has always known all everything. Okay, so that's the knowledge of Allah subhana wa Tada, this part of his Moloch as part of his demeanor and his authority, his power, Allah says, doesn't he know, the One who created you? Doesn't he know what's going on inside of you? He knows.
So that's comparison, or that's drawing a conclusion from the fact that he created to the conclusion that he knows because the One who created knows what he created, and that all scholars always, you know, quote this to show that the legislation of Allah subhanaw taala is superior to everything else. Allah created you and he knows what's good for you. He knows what's harmful. So his legislation is based on what must Lohan, Macedon good and evil. Allah has. Legislation is not random. It's not arbitrary.
It's binding, but it's based on the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala. It's not just random, there's no empty legislation. Everything has wisdom. Sometimes we know some of that wisdom and sometimes we don't know anything of that wisdom a lot kept some of that hidden from us.
The second point here is the name will not be full Hobby Lobby if
the main meaning of a lobby which now today the Arabs use a lot leave to mean the kind, which is correct. It's correct. It's not incorrect, but that's not the main meaning of life.
The meaning of life is subtle and hidden.
and hidden. For example of raw the soul of the humans when the scholars define it, they say a lovely effetto ality here happy to insert
a lovely for that subtle hidden thing. So non physical things are called labia in the Arabic language
are called Leafa okay Allah if non physical things metaphysical if you like a code life not Leafa they are described as Latif.
The Arabs describe the air as Latif
mad that will not leave the air. Why? Because invisible it's hardly even like you can't even sense it unless there is wind, right? It's so subtle. Its existence is so ubiquitous everywhere and subtle at the same time. That's what it is. So Allah Azza Latif, Allah is subtle, meaning that Allah
makes his will become true in ways you never thought about.
Allah will bring
his blessings when you have lost all hope, and all indications pointed the opposite.
In the lobby lobby, Ethan Lima Yasha. Allah is subtle and efficient, to whatever conclusions he wants he he decides. So just to bring bring that to your, to your attention, we continue on Oahu we're live Regina Hall linedata Lacombe, Alberta, aluminum feng shui monarchy, Bihar what Kulu Mariska?

That is it is he who has subjugated the earth to you so that you are able to do all kinds of activities that serve your needs, such as planting, building, tilling and finding routes by means of which you can reach distant regions and remote lands. So travel throughout its regions in order to seek provision and livelihood and eat of the provision granted by him and unto Him is the resurrection. That is, after you depart from this realm that Allah has made as a test, and a means of reaching the Hereafter you will be resurrected after your death and gathered to Allah, so that he may require you for your deeds both good and bad. Cool, that's another aspect of Allah's dominion.
the fact that he is the one who designed this earth in this shape, to make it you know, workable for you make it accessible for you. Make it conducive to your seeking provision to you tilling it,
seeding it, growing vegetables, fruits, crops produce, and then using it as well, the minerals and everything in it, the metals that you draw from it, the industries that you create, all of that is from Allah subhanaw taala, nothing is random.
So again, that's part of the dominion of Allah.
And not only that, he puts your provision in this earth. So you're supposed to seek for it to reach out to it. And then eventually, what's the end of all of this.
The end of all of this is that you will return to Allah and He will bring you back to life, you will be resurrected, in order to stand before him. So he holds you accountable.
That's the full meaning like everything in your life is under the control of Allah. Everything is prescribed by Allah, designed by Allah, everything in your life, your your life, the whole plan of your life is being put forth by Allah subhanaw taala.
And you don't depart from that plan. You don't depart from that plant. So everything was done this. That's the complete dominion. Who else has that level of Mulk.
Even the most influential people, the most powerful people on Earth in history, never had even a fraction of this.
He has control Allah just mentioned, he knows what's inside of you. He knows your intentions. He knows your thoughts. He knows your hidden thoughts, passing ideas, he knows that they are they're already part of his plan for your life.
There's no randomness in this. So that's the milk this is why it's called Surah Al Mulk, the meaning of Allah. Everything is exactly under the command of Allah and runs exactly according to the plan that Allah set for it. Nothing departs. Nothing, like die.
verges from this plant, nothing takes a detour. It all goes according to plan exactly, perfectly in all the details. That's the model of Allah. And what that would that should. The response or the state that this should put us in, is that we become more reliant on Allah, more trusting of Allah, feel that we are helpless of ourselves, we can't do anything.
We can't do anything that everything is in the hands of Allah, everything is under the control of Allah, everything is run by Allah, everything is decided by Allah, everything. So that puts our hearts at peace and also makes our heart our hearts reliant on Allah. No one controls anything I can try. But you know what, Allah's plan is going to come true.
So your heart becomes more attached to Allah than your own plans, your own actions, and everything else. It doesn't mean you sit and do nothing. Now because your actions are part of Allah's plan already. And your test in this life is to do your best and worshiping Allah and seeking the means that will sustain you and help you fulfill that. So you have to do that out of obligation and out of common sense.

This is a threat and warning to those who persist in transgression and disobedience that incurs divine wrath and punishment. Do you feel secure that He who is above to heaven namely Allah subhanho, wa taala, who is far above his creation will not cause the earth to swallow you up. And suddenly it would begin to shake and converse until it destroys you and kills you? Do you feel secure that He who is above the Heaven will not send against you a violent Squall of pebbles, that is a punishment from heaven that will strike you and thus Allah will wreak vengeance upon you, then you will know the consequences of my warning. That is that which the messengers and books warned you
of will will have warned you will come to you. So do not think that feeling safe from divine punishment, whether from the earth or from the heavens will benefit you, for you will see the consequences of your actions whether it is a long time coming or not. Those who came before you disbelieved as you have disbelieved. Then Allah subhanaw taala destroyed them. So see how Allah rod change upon them brought change upon them, and Hastin punishment from for them in this world before the punishment of the Hereafter and be aware less the same fate before you as befell them. Okay, there's a subtle meaning here. Luckily, if they are the Arabic language, they say, Martin and Latif,
okay, a subtle meaning here. So we're using floppy again here, man and lovely, subtle meaning hidden meaning, but very beautiful. And it's so much in line with the theme of the Surah Al Malik, the Romanian the authority of Allah and His total control over everything.
some sort of blindness, that is caused by familiarity.
We assume because life runs according to rules, the rules of physics, right how the world unfolds that we take it for granted, it's gonna be like that. And we forget that these rules are set by Allah and Allah can reverse them and Allah can change them. So humans knew when you will tell them fear the punishment of Allah they will tell you you know the day will they will follow the night the succession of the day and night will be the same the weather will be the same things will be the same life has always been the same right there will say so they rely on these rules that Allah and patterns that Allah subhanaw taala put in the creation. Now realize
saying that Allah subhanaw taala himself if he decides he can change that.
So Allah, Allah could punish you. And this is why you will find this usually with people who sin, people who sin they will tell you, you know, I've sinned but nothing happened to me. So they will get carried away. And they will do more and more and more than that to tell you all nothing happened. But that's the way Allah deals with some people in Allah Allah humilate a volley me had hula mu Flee to Allah subhanaw taala allows the person to indulge in their evil until they go too far. But then when Allah catches them, that's it. There's no escape. It's done. It's over. It's over.
So yeah, the the repetitive pattern of something should not blind you. And this is what they're talking about now today about more about the housing crisis, right? And the rising interest rate, and they're telling you, all Canadians got used in the last 20 years that interest rates are so low, that people found it as cheap money, and they were just buying property for investment. And now when they raise the interest rate, which is all of that is haram, obviously, is the river. When they raised it, they said, Oh, Canadians are shocked. How come? He said, So experts say this is the norm, what you've been experiencing in the last 20 years is an anomaly is a departure from the norm. These
are not normal, you know, these are not normal interest rates. 1% 2% 3%. The normal rates are something actually in the past, they were 30% in average, 25%. Right. But again, for some reasons.
For some policies, they kept it low, but they couldn't keep it low. Now it's coming back, right. So they say, Well, now we are actually back to normal, but people were blinded because 20 years that there is a generation that grew up seeing that interest rates are too low. Now I got your attention, right.
Can see the level of attention sifted? Okay. So along with that, so it's because it's a hot topic.
So they say, so people got felt safe, they said people felt safe, and they were borrowing like crazy. And they were purchasing,
you know, taking mortgages like crazy without any kind of precautions. So they said, now it comes back to bite you. So that's a blindness in humans, when things happen repetitively, we take them for granted, you can call it the veil of familiarity, or things have always been the same, you will find it in the Quran that they would people would say to their prophets, or like, we're just like the people who went before us and nothing happened to them.
So Allah subhanaw taala shows, you know what, no, there is control for Allah subhanaw taala Allah, don't let sheep on blind you. Because of that familiarity, don't be blinded to the fact that things are in the hands of Allah.
Things are in under the control of Allah, you think that patterns when they are repetitive and consistent, you think, oh, that's how things run. And that's the only thing you need to measure. And the only thing you need to understand reality, you don't realize you live in a very thin spectrum of reality, on a very tiny fraction of reality, but there is more to that, that is hidden from you. And his shirt, Allah tells us about that and the revelation. So you need to take heat,
you need to take heat, the things are not don't run According to financial
dynamics, they don't run according to cultural dynamics, all of those, um, you can call them micro dynamics, but there are macro, macro dynamic dynamics, and these are the, the, this the control of Allah subhanaw taala. And Allah says that something be it becomes.
So don't let that
that surface layer of reality deceive you, and blind you to the deeper reality where Allah is in control. So that's the subtle meaning here is that, oh, you feel safe, right? You've been living on Earth for a long time, and no Disasters are happening. So you feel safe, that Allah is not going to send a punishment from above you, or cause the earth to shake from underneath you.
And I think another example, contemporary examples, so maybe I'll get your attention as well, the earthquakes in Turkey.
There were many areas, you know, areas in the world where they're actually very active in terms of in terms of earthquakes, but
then they remain quiet and fairly stable for let's say, 50 6070 years, two or three generations, then you'd find that people in the past stopped building in these areas. And they started urban expansion in other areas that that had less kind of this kind of active earthquake activity.
So people then felt safe or it's been like, stable for 80 years. So they started building. And that's what happened in Turkey.
So they started building and now earthquakes came back
to hit them.
Right. So again, that's the kind of blindness, we also do the wrong thing and we get bitten by it. But then over time, we experiment with it. Again, if we don't get bitten, we get carried away. And we do more of it, when we do more of it, and we do more of it.
That eventually it comes us comes back at us to bite us. So it's important to understand, you know, that we have this type of blindness. And don't feel that if you are saved, that things are always going to be the same, that you can actually sin as much as people will say, Oh, humanity have been singing for a long time, and no punishment has befallen them. Right. You know, you don't dictate how Allah deals with his creation. Allah knows is the white light doesn't run his kingdom and his dominion according to our very, you know, simple, naive kind of logic that we have and we assume we're very intelligent.
So that's this little meaning here. That again, connects us to the Moloch Dominion call. I want them yellow electoral reform commissar fatty way up. Manuel Lobo Herman in Hungary coalition in Brazil, we have a terrible husband and another either hell let you play the lottery. So Holla Holla was a hahaha Well,

This is a rebuke urging people to look at the birds which Allah has subjugated and he has subjugated the air to them, they spread their wings in the air in order to fly and fold them when they land. And they soar and fly in the air going wherever they want according to their needs. None holds them aloft, except the Most Gracious for it is he who has subjugated the air to them and has made their physical makeup suitable for flight. Whoever looks at the birds and reflects upon their situation that will show him the mate of the Creator and His divine care. And he will realize we realize that Allah is the One and Allah is the one. And worship is not to be devoted to anyone but him. Rarely he
sees all things for he controls his slaves in a way that is befitting to hit them. And as dictated by his wisdom.
Yeah, so this is confirms the point we just explained. Last one, it says that you see the birds flying and you think, oh, that's how birds are. That's how things are. Today, we're a little more sophisticated, we say, Oh, these are the rules of physics. The bones are very
light, the structure of their body, the weight of their body, the total weight of their body, compared to the resistance of the wind, and so on and so forth. And the, you know, aerodynamics and all of that stuff, we say, okay, that's how it goes. That's the nature of these things. Allah is saying, you know, you're not looking deep enough. You're not looking deep enough. This is part of the dominion of Allah, Allah created them in this way. And Allah enabled them and put everything in place for the birds to be able to fly and navigate in such a way.
That's the design of Allah subhanaw taala. And, again, that's what happens with science with physics, chemistry, and everything that we know we say, Oh, this is these are the rules of nature, right? This is how things go.
And we forget we think, Oh, that's like it runs on its own. Right? That's it it's it's self perpetuating. It doesn't need any kind of management it doesn't need any initiator, right? Again, this is blindness Allah is saying Allah subhanho AMC Kahuna in the Rama No one keeps those birds in the air but Allah, Allah keeps them in the yes, you might discover some of those dynamics and be able to utilize them that's fine. But these dynamics did not happen by themselves. Allah put them in place a lot quicker as well.
Pull from them the capacity to work so they don't work anymore.
yeah, Allah subhanaw taala was gonna remind us to people were once they get into a pattern and they become forgetful, and the veil of familiarity takes over them. Allah sends them a shock to wake them up. And this is what we have, for example, again, like the financial crisis, they say, oh, financial crisis. Yes. In hindsight, you can look back and figure out
The forces that lead to it are the immediate, the direct causes that lead to it. Because this is how Allah runs his creation, when Allah brings something Allah brings about the causes that lead to it.
Right? But who caused the financial? The financial crisis, Allah causes it for his wisdom for a lot of wisdom, right? What causes causes natural disasters, Allah subhanaw taala for greater wisdom.
So we should, our our insight should penetrate the, you know the dynamics of the world that we see. This is what Allah is saying. Don't think that these things run on their own. This is part of the dominion of Allah. And look at how Allah made some creation, crawl some creation, walk, some creation, swim, some creation fly, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. That all of that is by design. All of that is by design. It's part of the month of Allah. God, a man her the lady who wouldn't do laconian solo could have been doing a black man in ill care Fiona Illa co wrote and had the lady of Zuko come in am Sakura, Bella Joe Pharaoh to win one for

Here Allah subhanaw taala says to the arrogant ones who defy his commands and turn away from the truth. What party is there that could come to your aid against the punishment of the Most Gracious, that is if the Most Gracious, intense ill for you who could help you and ward it off from you. In other words, who can help you against your enemies except the Most Gracious for he is the one who bestows honor or brings humiliation, whereas others who are who are mere created beings, even if they all came together to help someone could not bring him and Adams weight of benefit against any enemy, for the disbelievers to persist in their disbelief after knowing that no one can help them
against the punishment. Punishment of the Most Gracious is utter self deceit and folly. Who is there that could grant you a provision if Allah were to withhold His provision, that is all provision comes from Allah. So if he were to withhold His provision from you, who is there that could send it to you? People are unable to provide for themselves. So how about providing for others that were the provider and bestower of blessings for no blessing is granted to people but it is from him is the only one who deserves to be singled out for worship. But the disbelievers persist that is continue in defiance, that is hard heartedness and failing to open their hearts to the truth and aversion
that is turning away from the truth. Okay, that's again, another indication and manifestation of the monk, the Dominion, the power, the authority, absolute authority of Allah and control over everything. And this Subhanallah connects to Alpha Kappa, which is again one of the articles of faith, because in order to understand causality, causality is two levels. In simple terms,
there are the immediate causes. Like for example, what moves this
my physical power, the physical power in my hand moves this from this spot to that spot, that's immediate course.
But we have, these are less bad causes.
But we have Musa bibble as
the causer of causes, the ultimate cause Allah subhanaw taala
who caused me to
move this from here to here, Allah and His plan,
and both levels work in harmony.
We are usually preoccupied with the immediate level of causality. And that's blindness. Faith helps us see beyond this, see this and see what's beyond it which is
to the fact that everything is decided and run by Allah subhanaw taala.
That's belief in our product. That's a great part of belief in Allah.
And this is how the believer can put their trust in Allah is how you can put your trust in Allah despite what you see the believers when they saw that they were surrounded the companions of the ALLAH and a Medina, the husband's 100 The Trench when they saw how they were surrounded and hugely outnumbered by the disbelievers by pollution of water fun and some other tribes Venom Salim and then Benu Poroy about
the hypocrites said, that's it. We're doomed. We done we outnumbered they're going to wipe us out. What did the believers say? I'll add on our hadn't Allahu wa salam, wa salam ala Rasulillah This is what Allah and His Messenger promises and Allah and His messenger are truthful. What did Allah and His Messenger promised them victory?
Come on, like immediate dynamics tell you a different story. But you are seeing what's beyond them. Musa alayhis salam with his people. For the methodology man you call it was Hubble Musa in Allah McLaughlin, when Pharaoh and chase them, they reached the ocean, there's no way out there coordinate completely coordinate for and with all of his troops. And these people don't have anything to defend themselves with.
When they saw for Ireland, that he caught up with them, they said to Musa and nella McLaughlin. That's it, they caught us we're done. There's no way out.
Most Ali Salam did not only look at the Dyne, the immediate dynamics, and ASVAB. Right, the immediate causes, he looked at something that is he sees this, but he also sees the back end of those dynamics, how they come into place. And that's a richer view of reality. So what did he see there? For his faith in Allah subhanaw taala. He's not going to let down this group.
Kala kalah in MA RMBC. He said, No,
my Lord is with me. He's going to give us a way out he's going to show us a way up most of the salaam know what the way out was. No, he didn't. That was faith. That was faith.
Compare that to our own. Allah Who says about risk. Because we think oh, I get my risk from my job, I'm just gonna get a job and get my risk. It's simple dynamics, like it doesn't need intelligence that doesn't need faith. That's what people will say. And Allah will give them Allah will give them and they will get carried away. And they will become more convinced that if you want to make money, get a job, or set up a business and you will make money simple. It doesn't need for them it doesn't need a God doesn't need a creator. It's simple terms. My provision comes from my work. But if Allah subhanaw taala causes a financial disaster, or finance or
financial, whatever collapse,
right? And money loses its value. And Allah doesn't send rain.
And Allah doesn't allow vegetation to grow. Get your provision from a job or business.
You don't right, you actually stuck at a very small tiny fraction of reality layer of reality and you think you're wise, and you know what you're talking about our own when they advised him about his wealth and to use it wisely and to thank Allah for it. He said, Allah in nama otaku, Allah Hillman, and it's my skill, my intelligence.
I'm a financial savvy, right. I'm an expert. I know how to make money. We have a lot of those today. A lot of those today until you Oh, and I will teach you but by my course.
And they'll tell you, whatever you put your mind on, you can do it, you can get it done.
That that description can only apply to Allah, you're a human being you're under control, you don't have mold.
You don't have your Mameluke you are
you belong to Allah. You belong to Allah. So he's a caller in the multi turmoil element, nd What did Allah do for herself and maybe he will be done.
Because we cause the earth to open up, eat him and his house and his treasures, the gun all disappeared.
And it doesn't have to be in such a tragic or drastic way. It happens in so many ways.
Which we shouldn't be blinded by the thin layer of reality that we see. And we perceive there is more, there's more depth to that, and you have to see it. So who protects you who defends you? Who keeps you safe? It's Allah but you think you know what, it's the systems around you. It's the lifestyle around you. It's the precautions
it's Allah subhanaw taala these things are part of the puzzle. But when the bigger plan look at look at it, like the grand scheme of things in the background, but the dynamics are what's happening in front of you. You know, when you watch a movie, and you know the
hero in the movie, the big star in the movie is about to die. And you know, some people go oh, he's gonna die you said Oh no, he's not gonna die. The directors not gonna let him die. You know that right? So the dynamics there are he's gonna die but you know that there are dynamics in the background that are greater that producer or director will not, you know ruin the movie at this point you know the nut. So somehow out of nowhere something comes up and changes the whole situation. And that's we understand this at the level of humans making movies and films. But what about when you're talking about loss? Allah, the Creator of everything. So, again, this is an
emphasis of Al molk over loss upon what's called FME EMG McKibbon Allah when he had an EMG so we can analyse all of the Muslim, Yoda giulini, and men can attack you can football Adhara conflict conflict, but in Texas Apple boo boo for Sagal hepco in the Hobart Waldo blue will bow to the hardcore woman can I remember how they mature on the MBE MC Allah Serato. Mr. Team if he acquired he was mad, he wouldn't mean what he
was in. Nobody either. hardly has any allegedly you're an emerald for Kobe in alma mater, the main ballroom in Houma. Well, well, Akbar Rocha, he didn't mean a quad.
That is which of the two men is more guided, the one who is wondering and misguidance, sinking in disbelief to the extent that he sees things to be the opposite of what they are, so that he regards truth as falsehood and falsehood as truth, or the one who knows the truth and gives precedents to it and acts upon it by following the straight path, in his, in his words and deeds. And in all situations. simply looking at the situation of these two men, one will realize the difference between them and know which one is guided and which is misguided for conduct is greater testimony than words.
Yeah, and I think that's obvious. That's one of the signs of Allah subhanaw taala in his creation, that people who follow His guidance, their conduct will be more upright.
Yes, they might be tested in their life. But the reality is that their conduct, their standards, their morality, the beauty, the moral beauty, the goodness in their life is more evident than the life of others. But again, when the minds are so contaminated with, you know, the emphasis of wealth and capitalism and power and politics and all of that stuff, our standards get corrupted,
our standards get corrupted and the prophets Islam spoke about this, that
that towards the later times.
Follow love Rajawali ma Avila, who, mother of all ways, if you call it be
called the ultimate human, that people would look at a person that would say, What, uh, like, how cool this guy is, and in his heart, there is no emotion whatsoever.
And the Prophet Salam said that, in a sense of wonder, like, it's like, it's, it's,
it's astonishing that this, this is how things will be that you will find someone who has no image in their heart, you will find them cool and pleasant. Why? Because the standards will be corrupted.
The standards will be corrupted, and it happens, it happens that you will find a troublemaker, someone who's immoral, and they seek means around things and they play games and they act immorally you know, but they can, they can speak well. Right? And they, they, they they tell jokes, and they can be pleasant and they can be diplomatic.
And people admire them and they know they're the moral violations. Whereas someone who's very simple and maybe even dull, but you know what truthful? People don't appreciate that.
These are the standards standards have changed.
The standards have changed. So Allah subhanaw taala says, again, he's speaking a liar to the sound mind.
Those who follow the straight path of Allah subhanaw taala Are they similar? You know, look at their family life, look at their marriages, look at their look at their children. And you have to understand something about today. There's a lot of sugar coating around in the world. There's a lot of hiding truth. There's a lot of selective information being highlighted. And a lot of other information being hidden. Just to manipulate how you view reality.
How you view reality, you know, if you read statistics about just talk about the family I'm generally speaking among people who don't adhere to to Islam and the morality of Islam. You know, the level of abuse. Child abuse by parents is unbelievable.
are unbelievable. I had stories firsthand from people who were not Muslim. And they talked about the horrors in their house. And it seemed to be like the norm
these things are played down, but they are a reality.
You know, the honesty, the truthfulness, the decency of a Muslim of someone who truly believes in Allah. I mean, a Muslim will really adherence to Islam not again, you know, the the ones who don't really live by Islam is amazing because you refresh it
This RP people you find their humanity is maintained
and is enhanced.
But again, everyone has flaws, but we're talking about, you know, the more a person, you know, adheres to Islam, and you might say, oh, there are people who seem to be religious, you know, but they are the worst if you deal with them. You're talking about hypocrites. These are not believers, or they are they are believers. They are they are bordering hypocrisy. So these are not the standard. Don't be fooled by how they look like or how they present themselves.
Yeah, and there's a lot of those. There's a lot of those

Here Allah subhanaw taala says explaining that he alone is deserving of worship and calling his slaves to give things to Him and worship Him alone. Say it is He Who has created you that is he has brought you into being from nothing without any helper without any help or support or when he brought you into being he perfected your creation by giving you hearing sight and intellect which are the most beneficial of physical faculties.
But despite these blessings, little it is that you give Thanks to ALLAH those who are grateful are few among you. And gratitude is scarce among you say it is he who has scattered your scattered you throughout the earth. That is He has spread you throughout its regions and caused you to dwell all over the earth. He has issued commands and prohibitions to you and has bestowed blessings upon you that are of benefit to you. Then after that he will gather you on their day of resurrection. But this promise of acquittal is denied by the stubborn disbelievers and they say rejecting it.
So Allah subhanaw taala is saying here, not only that, he has control over everything, and He created everything and he designed everything and put it in place but even your creation, you yourself your ability to see, to hear, to process the thing to feel.
But to be conscious to have this human experience, all of that is given to you by Allah, and designed by Allah subhanaw taala. All of that is given by Allah so it's not like you happen to be in in the dominion of Allah, you yourself are the creation of Allah, you are who gave you your creation, Allah the outer ecology in Hong Kong with Amanda who gave everything its creation
who brought you into existence Allah Who designed you, who gave you all these devices? Allah subhana wa Tada. So it's not like, you don't even stand alone. And then you question Allah. You don't even stand on yourself. They say this in the in the in the Arabic language, which is again a lot of philosophical language. It's again from Kalam again and
they say Allah is workable will do Allah is necessarily exist.
didn't exist and by necessity, the app is absolute. It's impossible for Alana to exist, but our existence is what eluded. Mungkin. Our existence is possible. Why? Because it's emergent. Allah brought us into existence after we were not there. So our existence is not necessary. And if we are not in existence, not not much changes, but Allah subhanaw taala is the one on whom every everything or all of existence depends.
Okay, again, philosophical language, but the thing is,
you don't have an independent existence, yourself. And when you use your mind to reject Allah, Allah gave you them.
So you see the folly of all of this, when people who argue against the existence of Allah or the right of Allah to be worshipped?
God, we don't even matter how well we're doing come from Saudi Arabia, who Allah Matsuda him and you'll be or will be working and you will be with him. He has a role model in it for in the military, or in the law, he learned that hadn't been unhealthy. Well, I'm Eliza matavai. In Korea, the recovery were banal. Yes, we already work to him in a suitcase Euro phobia, they let him come along, and then I didn't let you well, Bella Heaney. And I also had to email Epicon, our denature Kim lemon Alcocer, our mushahid.
But this promise of acquittal is denied by these stubborn disbelievers. And they say rejecting it, when will this promise come to pass? If we you speak the truth, they think that as a sign of truthfulness, the messengers should tell them of the time of its coming. This is not right. And it is stubbornness on their part. knowledge thereof is only with Allah, not with any individual. And there is no connection between the truthfulness of disbelief and being able to say when it will happen. Truthfulness is known from its evidence. And Allah has established proof and evidence for its truthfulness. That leaves no room for the slightest doubt for anyone who listens and pays
attention. Yeah, what they are doing here is that rather than asking the real questions, who created us, why are we here? Or if there is,
next life, the Day of Judgment? They ask the wrong question. Okay. If there is a day of judgment, if you in order for us to believe in it, you have to tell us when it's gonna be.
That's the wrong question to ask.
That's not like a necessary
part of the reality of the Day of Judgment. It doesn't prove anything. If you know when it is, it's not the question. And subhanAllah you would find actually, this happens a lot in the media. How do they
confuse confused people, the masses?
Sometimes, and many times, they don't lie. They don't make like flagrant lies. Unless they are cornered, they would lie. But you know, they would not lie. They would just frame things by asking the wrong questions. Just asking the wrong questions all the time. All the time. They keep asking the wrong questions, the wrong questions and questions guide thinking
questions guide thinking you ask the wrong questions, you're confused. This is why they say the path to knowledge is asking good questions, good quality questions, lead to quality knowledge, lousy questions, even if you get the answers they will not give you good knowledge. So a great part of learning is actually to know which questions really to ask that are the most consequential about any situation

on the day of acquittal, when they see the punishment approaching, that is coming near that will distress them and fill them with anxiety, which will show in their faces, they will be rebuked for the disk for their disbelief and it will be said to them. This is what this is that what you disbelieved and today you will see it with your own eyes and matters will become clearer to you, but you will have no means to save yourselves. There is nothing left but for the punishment to before you because to because those who disbelieved that in the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rejected his call, we're waiting for him to die. Allah instructed him to say to them, even if your
wishes come true, and Allah causes me and those who are with me to die, that will not benefit you in the slightest because you have disbelieved in the signs of Allah, and are deserving of punishment, who will protect you from a painful punishment that has become inevitable for you. Therefore your efforts and eagerness for my death are of no benefit and are to no avail.

Among the things that they said was that they were guided and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was misguided and they kept repeating that over and over, arguing to prove that they were right and he was wrong. Therefore Allah instructed His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to tell them about his situation, and that of his followers, so as to make it clear to everyone that they were guided and the righteous. So they were to say, we believe in Him and in Him we put our trust. Belief includes both affirmation in the heart which will be which will have a positive impact on one's emotions, and outwardly visible deeds. Because carrying out deeds and perfecting them depends
on putting one's trust in Allah. Allah singles out trust from among other deeds, otherwise it it comes under the heading of faith, of which it is one of the essential parts as Allah Allahu Allah. As Allah subhanaw taala says elsewhere, and in Allah put your trust if you are truly believers, as this was the attitude of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and those who followed him, and it is the sound attitude that is necessary for success and on which happiness depends. And the attitude of his enemies was the opposite, because they had no faith and did not put their trust in Allah. Thus, it is known who was following through guidance and who had clearly gone astray. Then
Allah tells us that he alone bestows blessings, especially water from which Allah has made every living thing, as he says, say what do you think if your water were to disappear under the ground, then who could bring you accessible water that you could drink and give to your livestock and with which you could irrigate your trees and crops? This appears in the form of a question but what what is meant is negation. In other words, no one can do that except Allah
Subhan Allah subhanho data.
here there is a response to the disbelievers who disbelieved in Allah subhanaw taala. And his message to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu said Allah, Allah says on the Day of Judgment, they will see it and then they would believe
enamel pin. That's what they would say they will they see everything and say oh Allah Now we are convinced. Now we are convinced that you know Subhan Allah the justice of Allah. Allah says, Well I will tell you the worldly forehead and natty for color we are late and and all the while and we'll get to Rabina one more minute billbergia Lahoma count on your phone and Coppola, whatever do
we normally caribou losses? What if you see when they are made to stand before the hellfire?
And they would say, at that moment
they will say, we wish, we hope, if only if we can be returned or sent back to the life to the worldly life, we would believe. We believe that we've seen it.
And you know, many of us think you know, many people are not convinced, etc. Right? And they would maybe there's not enough evidence etc. Or maybe they they have, I don't know, an excuse, whatever. I mean, it could be it could be, but you need to understand the nature of faith is not mental conviction. It's not intellectual conviction. It's not in the mind. It's in the heart. So Allah says when they see the font or they say, Only if we are sent back we would believe and we would never be from the disbelievers. Allah said, Melba Donahoe, mechanical from a couple know what they use the faith in their heart used to be hidden, they used to hide suppress it. Now it became apparent when a
wall doula added the man who, if they were to be sent, listen to this. The disbelievers have seen now the hellfire and they say we wish we can go back Allah says if they were to be returned to this life, they would still disbelieve.
So it's not a matter of information and lack of information. I mean, with some people maybe yes, the message didn't reach them, but I'm talking about the people who received the message. Or maybe this maybe that Allah Allah and but the people believe, despite the truth coming to them, why it's the corruption of the heart. These people have seen the hellfire and Allah says if they were to go back to it's still disbelief in this life.
What and I'm like, yeah, so Allah Subhana Allah says, they will see it and they will see the truth on the Day of Judgment,
the truth of the message of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his warnings, and then Allah instructs the believer, the prophets of Solomon, the believers to say, we'll
to our Lord, we have believed in him and his message and we put our trust in Him and our reliance on him. He guides us, He guides us. Now the disbelievers obviously they argued based on advice from Bani Israel, in Medina.
Paulo, how would I add them in a Latina and Oh, Sabina these these are LJ human University of Otago to hold on and letting them in Edina ammonoosuc de la. They said about the worst vitals that these are actually more guided than the these Muslims.
So again, they tried to claim this to themselves just like today, a lot of you know, there's a lot of claim to humanity, human rights and whatever civilization justice and so on and so forth. These are all empty claims. The the reality of faith is in the ones who truly are the ones who believe in Allah are the ones who will eventually put their trust in Allah, the lifestyle, their conduct reveals this. And then eventually, Allah closes it with, again, the same veil of familiarity that we talked about, you see the water that you depend on, you can't even live for a couple of days without it, you would die. I'll put a light on us. But hanok might feel water were to sink deep down on the
earth and you have no access to it, what would you do, who would bring it back to you. You take things for granted, you think that you are so civilized, you're so powerful, and that you have whatever it takes, you don't realize that it's only one element, only one of the zillions of the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala taken away from you, you can't even live and you're done. Your whole everything in your life collapses, and you die. That's how fragile you are. And that's how dependent on Allah you are, but you're blind to it. So and all of that is in the hands of Allah, even your guidance, and your hearts are in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala. So this is the end of
commentary on Surah Al Maliki the Dominion. And with this we have hamdulillah completed to Jews, to Jews and again, you see with every week a little bit Subhanallah you can actually read substantial amount of Tafseer so this is why regularity is actually very important. If there's something you can do at home, you can do yourself you can do it with your family and something and you can learn a lot over time.
Okay, we can take a couple of questions
if sorry, I hope it's not too philosophical, but I I thought I had this concept of the other way around.
be behind me, but you kind of give me a little bit of a scare there. So Allah allows you to move the class from one place to another. Without Allah, we wouldn't do it. So then when you do something that is evil, or if you commit a sin,
is it still alive? It is like, Allah wrote it down. Good. So that's the question of evil. But again,
okay, and we actually should deal with this at some point in more detail. This has to do with understanding what evil is.
So good and evil happened by the permission of Allah and by the color of Allah. Yes.
But does Allah do evil? No.
Allah doesn't Allah Allah only does what's good, but Allah creates good and Allah creates evil. Now, what is the confusion come from? It comes from that we have swallowed the definition of good and evil that is not Islamic.
And that's where the confusion is. So let's make a point to talk about actually, you know, good and evil in terms of Alcazar? And how do we understand this? What seems to be a dilemma, but it's not a dilemma. How come Allah creates evil?
Isn't that tantamount to doing evil? Or is it different?
It's definitely different. It's completely different. But it obviously requires an explanation. lengthy explanation, not because it's difficult, it's easy. But you know, we have risk like we have our minds are contaminated to undo this. That's where the work is. Whereas whereas the simple the principle Islam is so simple, so straightforward. Okay, so remind me if I don't bring this up. Maybe Maybe we can talk about this next week and show maybe one more question sisters, just to give you a fair chance.
Question, no questions, turning back to the brothers quickly.
You need to speak up
if you decide that
we don't know.
We don't know.
Scholars, so the brothers asking the prompts Allah mentioned that reciting a source of milk every night. Protect is meant to protect the person from the person from a double cup of the punishment of the grave. What is in it? The President didn't say anything. Scholars could improvise and try but none of that is definite.
Okay, there are things called
Work fee mana walk fee, meaning it's from Allah without explanation.
Holla slammed standing by does that lock here? So lots of them I see them. He was happy edge man and keep your brothers and sisters in Palestine in New York.
