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

Now Allah azza wa jal continues,

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

who will lead the journal como Auto loulan from shoo fi Manor keybie her work Hulu, Marisa t, y la henault shore. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala continues and he says something, something very unusual. It's very unusual. Even for myself, I still when I look at this verse, I still have to think about at least a contextual benefit behind it. What is the connection between all the other verses and all the verses that come after with this particular verse? Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he is the one jaryd Allah como Allah, the Lula, and he is the one that's placed in the earth. As a ruler, the word the ruler comes obviously from the word Zulu, which means to make movements easy to make

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

something move from one place to another, with ease and comfort. So what Allah is saying here is that the earth I've made it subservient for you, and I've made the earth easy and comfortable for you to move around. This is one of the verses in the Quran, there are many but this is one of the verses in the Quran, that Allah azza wa jal encourages us to travel encourages the movement, the believer to move and see the world and see the earth and see the different creations the different beauties and miracles of Allah azza wa jal around you, like, for example, myself, this is one of the greatest things of being a dairy. Because being a dairy, you always have that opportunity to travel

00:01:48--> 00:02:25

around the world. And aside from it being free, of course, right. But you always have that opportunity to travel around the world and see all of these beautiful things you normally would never, ever have an opportunity to see. Or just because of circumstance you would never be able to do it. Like for example, one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to is right here in Canada. You know, when I've gone to to Calgary and I went to that Banff area Subhana Allah you know, when you're sitting there and you're looking at this area, you if you start to think about Jenna immediately, you know, you start to think about the beauty of how the rivers will flow in the

00:02:25--> 00:03:08

agenda. Allah azza wa jal I mean Jenna means a place of greenery when you're looking at the that area all you see is greenery everywhere. Then you will you go to BC and Vancouver you see something very similar as well. Like it's just absolutely beautiful when you travel and you see all of these things, and you can't help but just to contemplate on verses like this, you can't help but to just understand, this is why Allah azza wa jal always encourages us to continue to travel if you are able to do so you notice that Allah azza wa jal doesn't tell you to do it. He just says that I've placed the earth for you, so that you can move around and you can travel. It's so handle it's Allah azza wa

00:03:08--> 00:03:47

jal knows that a lot of us may not be able to do this, a lot of us may not be able to have that opportunity to travel. But the door is always open for you, it's always there. And in sha Allah, you should try to take advantage of it. And even personally, for myself, aside from the Tafseer, even personally for myself, you know, traveling should not be a hobby, it should be a part of your life, to travel and to visit. And as much as you can, it should be a part of the way you live. Don't just seclude yourself into one place all the time. Because then obviously life becomes very boring and you miss out on a lot of great, beautiful and wonderful things that you could see around the world

00:03:47--> 00:04:37

as well. Then we continue femme Shu female Kiba Not only does Allah say to you subhanho wa Taala that he's placed the earth free for you to travel in. But then Allah tells you how to do it. And he says feng shui man Akiba walk around the Earth, Allah azza wa jal says to walk. Now, this doesn't literally mean that you should literally start walking around everywhere you go. That's not what the verse is talking about. The verse is creating a different image. The image Allah azza wa jal is creating here is Allah is saying to you feel the travel. If that makes any sense when I say feel the travel, in other words, create your life in such a way that moving from one place to another and

00:04:37--> 00:05:00

seeing all of these beauty, try to taste it as much as you can. Traveling doesn't mean that you go on the internet and you Google your favorite country, and you just go through the pictures and Mashallah just feels great. Traveling doesn't mean just to get an album or get one of those atlases or something and just look through the pictures and just tell her Yeah, I've seen it already. I've never been there, but I've seen all the pictures and it's pretty much the same.

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

thing, Allah is telling you, I want you to feel it, I want you to be there, I want you to sit stand in front of the ocean, I want you to stand in front of the trees stand in front of all this beauty and I want you to see it. Why? All this goes back to the whole theme of the Quran. The whole theme of this particular Sora You want to know why Allah all of a sudden is telling us to travel and look around and go and see the world. It all goes back to affirming. What did we say the theme of the surah is, it's to build your tawakkol and your trust in Allah azza wa jal, one of the most effective ways to build your trust in Allah azza wa jal is to see the things around the world that cannot be

00:05:43--> 00:06:23

explained. When you go to simple places like Niagara Falls, and you just see the beauty of the water and you see the beauty of the flow of this nature and how Allah azza wa jal created in this should cause you to affirm your relationship with Allah azza wa jal that the next time you will need him for something specific for something heavy, or whatever the case is, it's going to be easy for you to always have your trust with Allah through the thick times through the thin times in your life. That's why Allah is telling us to do this. You see how nicely everything starts to tie in together. This is why another way of getting an effective Tafseer of the Quran is to look at contextual

00:06:23--> 00:06:46

benefits of the poor and look at it also from a psychological point of view. Don't just look at the verse for what it is, and keep it dry at that moment and just continue to the next verse. Because you're just going to get standard fundamental Tafseer out of it. That's great. But it's not enough to satisfy the thirst and hunger that you have in your heart for Allah subhanho wa Taala Eilis words.

00:06:47--> 00:06:49

And then it continues here.

00:06:50--> 00:07:14

femme Shu female Anna keybie her work Hulu muris. Pay, see how Allah wants you to feel it. He says to walk and feel the travel wherever you're going, and also take part in it. What kulu mele risty and eat from the provisions that Allah azza wa jal gives you. You notice Allah all of a sudden here, as part of traveling around the world is to eat.

00:07:15--> 00:08:00

Eating is something that is a part of our Deen eating makes us happy. I don't mean that just literally but even spiritually, it's good for us. It's good for our faith. It's good for our soul. Eating can be an act of very bad and worship with a large soldier. We experience it at least once a year for one entire month. We have the thought and we have the soul. The reason why we have those things as part of Ramadan. It all has to do with a breakfast and a dinner. All of this has to do go goes back to one concept which is food and it clearly shows us that food is a part of our Deen it makes us happy and it brings our hearts together. This is why Allah azza wa jal says in suited for

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

her

00:08:02--> 00:08:50

in alerta jus our fee her wala tear out all that in the agenda. Allah azza wa jal is saying that the people in the paradise, they're never going to let a Jew or fee hawala tear out or the first thing Allah mentions is that you're not going to go hungry. And the same time your chastity and your honor is going to be protected. It's not the other way around. Allah addresses and says food is the one of the greatest blessings that you're going to have in paradise before protecting your chastity. And when you look at the context of the AI, and the order of the verse itself. So here Allah says we're kulu mele, risky, eight from the things that allies so a gel has provided for you, what he lay

00:08:50--> 00:09:31

hidden offshore. And also keep in mind now Allah azza wa jal says what he let him know Sure. In other words, don't get carried away what he lay him neutral eventually to him, you're going to be resurrected back to Allah azza wa jal why and the verse this way. Don't get carried away by traveling and going all over the earth and eating all the delicious foods and just traveling going from one place to another forget your deen forget this. get confused with stuff all the time, as opposed to more game time and all don't get confused. Don't lose sight. Don't lose sight of what's important. Allah ends it often says what you lay in no short that should always be your priority.

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

Then Allah azza wa jal continues but before we do them in the Muslim of Imam Ahmed, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned another a hadith which is very interesting as well, that the prophecy seldom mentions low income tattoo what coluna Allah Allah He helped our Cooley If only you would have the tawakkol in order

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

As our gel and fulfill the rights of tawakkol with him, so don't just say it, but live it. Then the process seven continues if you do this

00:10:13--> 00:11:09

load Ozaki lo Rosa kokoon karma Yasuko tire, allies zoa gel is going to provide and give you risk, the same way that he gives a risk to the birds and the pigeons flying in the sky. What's the risk of the bird it continues to hold do he mouse son What out what toto who built on and they leave their selves they leave in the day with an empty stomach and they return back to their homes into their nests with a full stomach and what Allah has now just look at the parable here the prophets I seldom uses, he compares the risk of Allah as a legend to a simple bird or a pigeon, pigeon or a bird when they fly in the sky. They're hopeless. They don't know where to target where to go and find their

00:11:09--> 00:12:05

risk from Allah. But what Allah is saying is that here they are moving around in the world moving around in the sky. Yes, yet Allah azza wa jal is still aware. He is IE moon beta two pseudo he still knows what what their circumstances and he's going to make sure that they get back home safely with a full stomach they receive everything that they need. Then in short, a low tarla we have just about a minute or so. Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to put fear now in the disbelievers. And this is the next verse. mean to Memphis a super cool auto fair either here tomorrow. Now Allah azza wa jal here is speaking again to the disbelievers. And he mentions I mean to him, Do you feel safe Memphis?

00:12:05--> 00:12:38

semer er sefa become an adult? Do you feel safe if Allah subhanho wa Taala? Or who the one who is above the skies, that he will eclipse or envelop you and cause the earth to shake? So what is this this is like a horrific threat. But at the same time, it's to put things into perspective. Wait, pause. What would happen if I did this from you? And we'll talk about why Allah subhanho wa Taala does this after a short pause.
