Part of SUTA to Norwich is of course a to note. And we've discussed this a in terms of an overview, when ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala provides for us an example, an example of who Allah is, and how you can comprehend the concept of a creator. And this a him the thing that I love about it the most, it's nothing like anyone would think about when you think about describing God, are you describing Allah? You know, I once gave a talk years ago, to a non Muslim audience. And I had to speak about who Allah is, you know, from an Islamic perspective. And I went through this.

00:00:49 --> 00:01:07

And I tried my best to do it in a way that was easy for non Muslims to understand. It wasn't like how you and I are studying him. And by Allah's Will, that audience was the most shahada I've ever given in one setting in my whole life.

00:01:08 --> 00:01:46

And I don't want to even mention the numbers because that's, that's not important. Everything's in Allah subhanaw taala tireless control. But it was really important to me and very encouraging because this A, and through that experience, taught me a lot about what this AI represents, and what it should also represent for you and I as well, when Allah subhanho wa taala. So let's just go and zoom through it real quickly to refresh our minds and for the students online. Just so we really grasp the message of this verse so that it'll make life a whole lot easier when we conclude the sewer, okay.

00:01:47 --> 00:02:14

We already mentioned Allah who notice somehow what he will audit. And we describe that a notice somehow what an adult, Allah is the means by which the skies and the earth can really be seen. What did we mention this was in reference to just shout it out to me. Remember, when I say to you, Allah is the means by which the skies and Earth can really be seen, can really be appreciated meaning?

00:02:16 --> 00:02:17

So again,

00:02:18 --> 00:02:25

the only way keep going, when you look at the sky, or you look all around planet Earth.

00:02:27 --> 00:02:30

How do you see the light of Allah? What's the connection?

00:02:31 --> 00:02:38

Remember, we mentioned there are people who will look at the sky and only see a blue sky.

00:02:39 --> 00:02:44

But when you have this when you have Allah with you,

00:02:45 --> 00:02:48

what do you see, other than just the sky?

00:02:50 --> 00:02:54

And you should all be able to say what do you see when you look up into the sky?

00:02:57 --> 00:03:25

You see greatness, you see beauty, you see a reflection of Allah's creation. In perfection. You see a system where the transition from night to day, happening each and every day, like these are the things we don't really reflect on. We don't really think about it as much. And the reason is because it's just one of those things that human beings in general take for granted.

00:03:27 --> 00:03:28

Like trees,

00:03:29 --> 00:03:35

clouds, rain, just, you know, beautiful scenery.

00:03:36 --> 00:03:40

For the most part, most people don't look at it beyond what it is.

00:03:42 --> 00:04:07

And Allah who notice some Allah to a lot helps you to realize that there is more than what you see there is more that you can appreciate. And we're going to make the connection all of them want to put it all together shortly so that it'll really be crystal clear for all of us. Methadone od he chemische Kathy Hamel spa and niche in the wall where light illuminates Miss Biafra. That's the example.

00:04:08 --> 00:04:27

So let's leave it at that we're going to interpret what that means in a moment right. And in this battlefield Sujata we mentioned so this particular niche in the wall light comes from it and this whole area is covered with some kind of clear glass

00:04:28 --> 00:04:43

as Luigia jets who can kill cabin Do re the glasses like a large star extremely shiny. This image you see in front of you and on your screens. It's the perfect image to reflect what the A is describing.

00:04:44 --> 00:04:45

And then

00:04:47 --> 00:04:52

you put them in sheduled Tim mobile raka tins a tuna I bless the tree

00:04:54 --> 00:04:59

Mobarak more than expected so what's this blessed this blessed a tree all Ebell. Remember take a look at the example

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

The translation here

00:05:03 --> 00:05:18

star lit from a blessing tree. So the light that is being illuminated in here is being fueled by a blessed ID tree. You with me? Okay.

00:05:19 --> 00:05:49

And then last Sharpie Tijuana. orbia. So, remember we said just so no one thinks that this sun will only reflect and benefit one side of the tree. Allah makes that clear. Both ends of this tree. It's not in one extreme or the other extreme. This tree is somewhere in the middle. Okay. Yeah, CAD who say to how you will do that will tell us who now crude oil, I believe? Is this where we paused?

00:05:50 --> 00:05:52

Or did we actually complete the idea?

00:05:54 --> 00:06:01

Yeah, I think this is where we pots, right? Yep. CAD was a to how you'll do oil LM Tim says who now?

00:06:02 --> 00:06:53

Crude oil. So there are two types of oil, refined oil and crude oil, right? Crude oil works to burn and refined oil that is highly flammable. So crude oil, you have to put it through a process for it to burn whereas refined oil, it's lit, it's flammable. And this A is in reference to what meaning the oil from this olive tree is shiny all by itself. It's already illuminating. So it's more or less connected to the example you and I can relate to which is refined oil. So just think of it in your mind that oil that ignites quickly, without hardly any effort. Okay? Neural nada, no. Shows so shiny. So the light that's illuminating from your is so brilliant, and it's so shiny, that it is

00:06:53 --> 00:06:58

Light upon light. So what is that all about? Let's take a look.

00:06:59 --> 00:07:02

Here's your first point when it comes to this AI.

00:07:04 --> 00:07:29

There is a parable that this area presents and that is the heart. Everything about this area is a reflection of the heart of a believer. So the north of ALLAH, so the first part of the eye Allah who notice some our tea without the light of Allah subhanho wa Taala that's being talked about in this a.

00:07:31 --> 00:07:32

There you have it.

00:07:34 --> 00:07:35


00:07:36 --> 00:07:43

Amen. As our Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam mentions, is a light, a spiritual light.

00:07:44 --> 00:08:35

And the Knorr that Allah is describing here. Amen is a reflection of nor that is blessed to you from ALLAH SubhanA wa, tada. It is because of Eman, you see more than just the sky. You see everything else that no school, nothing in life. No education can teach you. You just know. You just see it. You just appreciate. And remember the example of the tree that I gave you. You could have a biologist that looks at beautiful creatures and describes to you their habitat and how they feed and how they live and how they build their homes. And they'll describe to you all of these different edges of nature as a whole. But you as the believer, you probably learn all of that stuff. But what

00:08:35 --> 00:09:27

you see is, you see Subhan Allah, you see Ma sha Allah, wow. How smart is that creature? How brilliant is it? Like it's endless. I always have said this. Some of you probably remember me saying this. If you want to increase your Eman. One of the most effective ways to increase your Eman is just look and appreciate the animal kingdom. Look at a National Geographic video of some animal go to the planet Earth series and just watch a couple episodes I promise you in Shall I promise you. You're just gonna you're gonna finish that episode just being my god Subhan Allah. Allah has Nora and signs of his existence is everywhere. And the perfection of this balance of how nature operates

00:09:27 --> 00:09:34

is truly remarkable. But you can't appreciate anything like that. Unless you have

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

a man

00:09:39 --> 00:09:44

step away from the animal kingdom and come back to life with humans on life with people.

00:09:46 --> 00:09:54

You know, people ask all the time, how can I be more patient? How can I control my emotions?

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

How can I love Islam? I can practice it but the love

00:10:00 --> 00:10:17

is not really there. How can I fall in love with my solder? Especially those quiet ones where you don't you're not hearing any recitation? How can I love the HUD? Like how I love fed you like how I love noclip people ask these questions all the time Muslims ask these things all the time.

00:10:18 --> 00:10:24

One simple but yet difficult way to approach that.

00:10:25 --> 00:10:54

It's amen. Amen helps you it's about appreciating what you have. The fact that you can wake up and you can pray Alhamdulillah you appreciate that stuff Allah gives you more. And when you have Amen, ie the NOR of Allah subhanho wa Taala with you. Everything on this planet will make sense. life on this earth will make sense. Everything will just make sense. It's not going to always be easy, but it'll make sense. Okay.

00:10:56 --> 00:11:03

That niche methylome Norihiko. Amish Kathy having a spy lamp? What does that mean reference to

00:11:04 --> 00:11:35

see our chest, the shape of it. You have your ribs, it's kind of like a chest cavity in the center. And what's behind all of that? Your heart? Where does Amen reside in the heart, where's it born in the heart. So Allah says that in the chest of the believers, so Allah protects this nor or this, Amen. Now go back to the example of this niche that's covered with glass.

00:11:37 --> 00:11:41

If you leave glass out for a while,

00:11:42 --> 00:11:43

what ends up happening to it.

00:11:45 --> 00:11:46

If you leave like a cup

00:11:49 --> 00:11:52

or over time, it becomes dirty. Right?

00:11:53 --> 00:11:56

And you don't do anything, you just leave it alone.

00:11:57 --> 00:12:03

So the same idea here, if you don't nurture Amen,

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

you start losing it. Or if you feed Eman, the wrong foods.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:16

If you feed it the wrong fuel,

00:12:17 --> 00:12:24

then it also becomes dirty. It starts to become moldy. It starts to spiritually rot.

00:12:25 --> 00:12:46

And unfortunately, it's really sad man Subhanallah like we have so much beautiful air yet like this, but when you in turn, explore and see what Muslims are and what we do as a culture as a movement as a Oma. It is a really sad state. It's a really sad state. You ever say all Muslims get angry? Whoa, my goodness.

00:12:48 --> 00:12:51

Oh my goodness. You just get a Muslim upset.

00:12:52 --> 00:12:56

Parked too close to his car. Tell him Brother, don't do that.

00:12:57 --> 00:13:48

Stand in line, follow the instructions. My God, you ever see how we stand up in lines. It's really sad. The thing that keeps all of that under control and civilized is because you have a man and you need to protect it. You need to nurture it. All of you who are in school, whether it be High School University, this A you've got to carry it with you 24 hours because why you're in a place where your Eman is going to be drilled and blended and go through a grind day after day where you lose a little bit of that norm. You know, I asked my youth class yesterday. How many of you read some poor and today and 111 A few of them put their hands up I just as like just you read something today?

00:13:48 --> 00:14:07

Obviously 90% of them didn't. You are dead. If you don't read the poor and at least a portion of it at it you are literally spiritually dead. You're like a zombie. That's what your day is. That's why Allah says in another sorta a woman can Mater once upon a time they were dead meaning spiritually dead.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:18

Yeah, you know, but we gave them life. We gave them purpose. We gave them a reason to wake up what was it? What did Allah give us?

00:14:20 --> 00:14:21

What did Allah give us?

00:14:22 --> 00:14:23

Before that,

00:14:24 --> 00:14:25

the Quran

00:14:26 --> 00:14:33

there is no Salah without Quran, there is no Islam without, there is no emotion without.

00:14:34 --> 00:14:59

So that's what this area is trying to help us visualize and understand. If you want the light of Allah to be with you. You've got to nurture and take care of it. Okay, just like we take care of our own physical hearts. The brilliance the brightness that illuminates from this light, to keep it fuel to keep it going. Purity it reflects the purity of the human beings.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:10

just going to summarize what we've just talked about. If the glass is dirty, what ends up happening, so, you know, light of the heart cannot be received, nor can it be appreciated.

00:15:12 --> 00:15:13

So when it's dirty,

00:15:14 --> 00:15:16

it starts to become dark and cluttered.

00:15:17 --> 00:15:33

So if you know let's briefly put this into perspective, if you have a light and it's you know, it's caved into a glass you know, cover or something, and you don't clean it after a while and you light it up what ends up happening, the light barely pierces through.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:39

And from a spiritual sense, light can barely get in. Have you heard this before?

00:15:42 --> 00:15:46

Friends and foster home Hola, eco hormonal fasciae poan.

00:15:48 --> 00:15:52

So it's all hasha Allah says that

00:15:53 --> 00:15:56

those who forget Allah

00:15:58 --> 00:16:10

Okay, those who forget Allah, Allah causes them to forget themselves. So mark this down okay? And so it will Hashem read the very end of the surah

00:16:11 --> 00:16:33

Allah says if you forget Allah, then Allah will make you forget yourself. Allah He can hormone fasting code the people who forgot themselves are people who are inherently corrupt you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to give you the a number so that you really keep track of this okay?

00:16:35 --> 00:16:38

So total hash or where are you

00:16:44 --> 00:17:10

okay, so give it's it's at the very end where carat is it is verse number 19. So little hasher verse number 19. Okay, what Taku Kela Xena and so Allah don't be of the people who forgot Allah you know what Allah did to them? The answer home and foster home Allah made them forget themselves. How do you forget yourselves? Does anybody have any thoughts on this? How do you forget who you are?

00:17:11 --> 00:17:13

How do you forget you?

00:17:19 --> 00:17:56

Good. So you wake up like this. You wake up like this. You brush your teeth. You have breakfast, you go about your day schoolwork, whatever, come home, chill, relax, sleep. Do it again the next day, Monday to Friday, Friday rolls around. TGI F right. So you chilling now Friday night, do whatever you got to do relax. Saturday, Sunday, chill out, would friends relax, go out somewhere, do something Monday, same schedule, you're back into it. And that's your whole life. And then you die. That someone who forgot who they really are.

00:17:57 --> 00:18:09

Allah says you don't have Amen in you. You'll forget yourself. You're just gonna be like a person that goes through this routine, and then you die.

00:18:11 --> 00:18:17

And that's it. Then Allah describes the heart of someone who has the he calls their heart fist.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:55

You guys have heard the word facet or fist or forsook meaning. Fist is when you have something and you leave it like a fruit you have it out for a while and what ends up happening. If you put like a peach or fruit out for a while, what ends up happening to you won't touch it, it starts to get moldy, it starts to get rotten, and so on and so forth. That's what Allah is describing when he makes you forget yourself, then your heart just becomes spiritually decayed. This area is to start fueling that heart again. But it won't receive the fuel. If the glass is dirty.

00:18:56 --> 00:19:25

If your heart in and of itself won't accept and listen to this information, it won't take it. You're listening to all the talks, the classes, the core and the lectures, but it's not getting there. It's getting here. Hum, delight is great, but it kind of stops there. Another example of that is just think about people that we all know who have prayed and practice Islam their whole life. But man, if you do business with them, they're the worst on the planet. You can't do business with them.

00:19:27 --> 00:19:30

Trust them, they'll break your trust.

00:19:32 --> 00:19:35

So that's the sign. It's not working.

00:19:37 --> 00:19:40

It's not working. Then Allah continues.

00:19:42 --> 00:19:47

This is an example that I wrote here is the Porsche got the best Tafseer of the Quran.

00:19:48 --> 00:19:52

Remember the Quran, the Mexicans? How did they get their Tafseer of the Quran?

00:19:55 --> 00:20:00

From the province they sell them how they got an actual

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

physical example of the Koran to live amongst them.

00:20:06 --> 00:20:17

And they still disbelieved. They still hated him and try to stop that movement. That's our walking quarter N.

00:20:19 --> 00:20:27

Man who communicates with Allah like everything, you know, the prophets are Lisa. And the Quran still said, No, we don't want you. That's the example.

00:20:28 --> 00:20:40

So it's really, it's like a wake up call. But it's also for you and I to really reflect and think if you are at a point in your life where your Eman is just

00:20:42 --> 00:20:44

just stable. That's a problem.

00:20:46 --> 00:20:51

Alhamdulillah you still have it, but you're going to lose it if you don't keep feeding it.

00:20:53 --> 00:20:56

Okay, how do you do all of that we'll come to that later.

00:20:57 --> 00:21:06

Nor to the East or to the west, though, has no biases, though. The soul itself doesn't care where it gets it from.

00:21:08 --> 00:21:09

You know, how we say.

00:21:11 --> 00:21:33

And again, watch how this area puts everything that you and I see and experience into perspective now. In the world we live in today. Do we have masjids that are culturally divided? Yeah. We have the Arab masjid, the Indian masjid, the Somali Masjid the Bible we have that?

00:21:34 --> 00:21:35

Is that haram?

00:21:36 --> 00:21:39

No, not really. Nothing wrong with that.

00:21:40 --> 00:21:59

Unless, if that is all a masjid is to you. That's the problem. If you get an allergic reaction, when you go into a mess you that's a different culture than you. You have a problem. You Your Eman. As a matter of fact, the soul in us spiritually corrupt.

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

It shouldn't be that way. And it's not the blame of just the congregation. It's also the blame of people who set the tone who build foundations like this and create that environment. And make people feel awkward by making announcements in a language. Only three people understand, but 97% of them don't.

00:22:21 --> 00:22:38

Those kinds of things. It's very frustrating for me as a speaker, because I see this stuff all the time, I get asked to do hot buzzing talks in other languages, like in Arabic or something else. I don't have a problem with that. But I won't do it simply because

00:22:39 --> 00:22:50

the best for somebody to understand is for people to take a lesson. How do you do that when no one understands the language you're talking? So that's what the rule is.

00:22:51 --> 00:23:02

Doesn't care. No bias is not leaning to one end or the other. Okay, fine. It's balanced. It's right there in the middle. Refined oil. What does that represent in this at the Academy was a to how you will de

00:23:03 --> 00:23:06

potential light or rule in you. So

00:23:07 --> 00:23:09

if you go back to that lamp,

00:23:11 --> 00:23:12

and it's got a bulb in it.

00:23:13 --> 00:23:17

And you turn on the switch? And it's not working?

00:23:19 --> 00:23:22

It's not working? Do you give up on the lamp?

00:23:24 --> 00:23:30

Jeez, Okay, it's done. Forget it, there's no hope. What would you do? You do what any normal person would do.

00:23:32 --> 00:24:21

Check the ball, you check the connection, you do all those basic things, and you try to get it going. What this area is telling you an eye when it's talking about this fuel that's fueling this light. It means that even though the bulb isn't lit up, there's a bulb there. There's a place on a spot where this bulb goes. So even if you have no Eman and you think that wherever you are in your life, that's where you belong. This area says no. Once you're here and you're alive, you still have the potential to feel that like more and more and more. So don't stop increasing your faith. Don't stop pumping spiritual field in your heart. Don't stop doing that. That's a tragedy all by itself.

00:24:21 --> 00:24:33

When people say how, how was a login accept me, I've done every sin imaginable. Why am I going to be accepted? How can I change? You don't get to make that decision.

00:24:35 --> 00:24:39

You know, a long time ago, a sister who is known not to wear hijab, right?

00:24:40 --> 00:24:53

She was an amazing volunteer at a masjid. And but she just didn't wear the hijab, right? And she had a group of friends who were all hijabis

00:24:54 --> 00:25:00

and every time they would take pictures, she would feel the awkwardness that everybody is they're covered up but she

00:25:00 --> 00:25:16

She's not but she's just like, I'm not ready for the job. I'm not ready for the job. Okay, fine. Some time went by. And then one day, one day, she walked in the masjid, with a hijab on, she went at the back and she prayed to rokerites

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

this some of her friends in her circle went up to her, and started to ask her oh my god, you actually warned why.

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

Why would you wear like we just saw you the other day with your boyfriend. We just saw you the other day doing X, Y, and Zed. Like, come on. You don't get to do that. You do not get to pass judgment on anyone ever period. Because why you are susceptible to the same problems and sins that anybody else is. So why would you judge them because you could fall into the same thing.

00:25:52 --> 00:25:53

And subhanAllah

00:25:54 --> 00:26:13

our scholars tell us that when you are judgmental towards someone, that one of the consequences for that is that Allah will remove all the guidance and good from you and give it to the person you're judging. And that could actually happen. Moments before your death.

00:26:14 --> 00:26:31

Allah could remove it. So here you are living your entire life. And you judge this and judge that thinking is all gonna be good because you're really into Islam. But just before you die, Allah snatches away he men from Subhana Allah. So the fact that you

00:26:32 --> 00:26:44

acknowledge this aim means you have the potential in you to continue to work and increase your faith. Okay? Light upon light potential light, meaning the opportunity to light up.

00:26:45 --> 00:27:03

So Light upon light, the first nor in the AMA, remember, it sounds like this No, Allah, no Light upon light, the light that's already there has the potential to be lit. So it's the fuse or the ignition.

00:27:05 --> 00:27:08

The light that's added is the lighter.

00:27:10 --> 00:27:58

So there is a foundation. Now the light that you want from Allah subhanaw Eman. Now it has a place to go. So it's light that's already in you, which is your consciousness your desire to one good? Have you heard the idea? Allah will never change the state of people unless they change themselves. You're the say, in the Lucha you'll think it'll be a poem, I tell you if you don't maybe unforeseen. This is one it's mentioned only twice in the whole core. And it's probably one of the most remarkable as ever, only twice. Allah says I'm never ever going to allow anybody to change themselves unless they ignite your Higher Self here means you have to turn the key.

00:27:59 --> 00:28:06

Allah will give you the ignition, but you got to put the key in tourna. Allah will give you the key even you got to turn it.

00:28:07 --> 00:28:32

Does that make sense? So this area is actually an A of hope, makes you feel like my god. Doesn't matter how old I am. It doesn't matter what I've done. I could actually be a person from Jenna in sha Allah, I could still get it. So it has the potential to light up. Now this light that Allah will fuel the light that's already immune. So you have two lights now in this a, what's the first one?

00:28:34 --> 00:28:36

What's the first light that I started with?

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


00:28:39 --> 00:28:40


00:28:41 --> 00:28:45

Remember guys, amen. A second light.

00:28:46 --> 00:28:47

It's revelation.

00:28:49 --> 00:29:09

Northern Ireland, no light, and more light is added. It's revelation. It's the polar end, its guidance, the appetite of a human being two types, the outer self, the inner self, the outer self, is the example you see in front of you.

00:29:11 --> 00:29:50

Right, it's the physical aspects of our life, like we actually are become hungry. We want to satisfy and relieve ourselves of that hunger is physical appetites that you have of like, the appetite, to want to relax, to want to feel happy to all of those things. That's the outer layer of ourself and who we are as human beings. But then there's the appetite of the soul. So you can feed your body everything that you need to feed it, you get you give it exercise, you nurture, you take care of it, you take care of your life, you take care of your family, that's the outer layer of you. But then that inner layer

00:29:52 --> 00:29:59

is the appetite of your soul. It's the appetite of a man that also needs some food to that also needs to

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

needs to be fueled as well. It needs to be nurtured as well. So intellectually many people have accepted Islam but spiritually

00:30:09 --> 00:30:10

different story.

00:30:11 --> 00:30:27

So you'll meet Muslims like that all the time. Yeah, I'm Muslim. Yeah, I go to a masjid all the time. Until problems arise. Tough times come in. That's a different story. Allah guides to this light whomever He wills. That's the ending of this area right here. Let me go back to

00:30:28 --> 00:30:29

so you guys can

00:30:31 --> 00:31:03

hear Allah guides to His light home he wills Yeah, de la Hooli. Naughty he may SHA, Allah guides who ever he wants to this light. Do you know why that's important? It's important because you don't get to decide how that happens. You just have to pray. Put the effort leave the result of your efforts to Allah subhana wa Tada. You can't guide anybody, we can't even guide our own selves.

00:31:05 --> 00:31:09

That comes that's a gift that Allah instills in all of us And Alhamdulillah

00:31:10 --> 00:31:32

all of us have this to an extent and even if you don't you have that potential to ignite that light so that you can receive the guidance from Allah. While double la will unfairly NASW Allah Who equally shade in Arlene. And Allah presents examples for the people. Does everybody know what that means? When we say Allah presents examples for the people that mean

00:31:33 --> 00:31:59

when Allah gives you examples, wildly below And third, Allah says I'm going to show you examples and examples meaning I'm going to show you proof. Prove it to you will show you proof after proof in life, how you need to connect yourself back to him. You need Allah in your life, or there is no life. Yeah, you know, sort of Hajia uns or mankind, Dori bear methadone for STEMI or Willa.

00:32:01 --> 00:32:11

I give you examples over examples. You know what you have to do when those examples are brought to you? First hemiola stop what you're doing and pay attention.

00:32:12 --> 00:32:19

What's it what's an example of Allah? What give me something, an example that Allah will send to you anything?

00:32:20 --> 00:32:49

Like I'll give you one. If I happen to be driving, and on my street, I hear you know, Allah forbid, I hear gunshots. And next day on the news, I find out somebody was shot on my street that I live on that I walk on that I take my family on, somebody got shot. Is that an event? Is that a an example Allah has sent you, I guess, means that could have been you.

00:32:50 --> 00:33:08

But it wasn't. So be great. Be grateful and keep feeding your Amen. So you can take moments like that, that hit that close to your house, and not just be like, Oh, thank God, I wasn't there. It's a good thing. I went to work today. No, no, no. First and foremost, that hum did Allah Allah protected us from that?

00:33:10 --> 00:33:19

Allah protected us from it. See, see how that works. This message here, for example, do you remember there were some intruders that tried to break in?

00:33:20 --> 00:33:27

They came here one day, they broke into the property. They tried to break into the masjid

00:33:28 --> 00:33:34

and attempt to let whoever was present called the police and they were apprehended.

00:33:35 --> 00:33:36

Here's the thing.

00:33:37 --> 00:33:39

None of us were here.

00:33:40 --> 00:33:44

Because the masjid was on lockdown. So there was no congregation here.

00:33:46 --> 00:33:50

hamdulillah Can you imagine if we were all here?

00:33:51 --> 00:34:04

So that's the first that's the first thing when you respond to life. And all the things that you witnessed an experience that could have been you when you deal with it in a way with Alhamdulillah and you're just grateful.

00:34:05 --> 00:34:24

Everything starts now you start feeling that no, now you start understanding your purpose, and you start to feel it more and more and more. Okay, well, Lahu be clearly shading Eileen. And finally, Allah says He is fully well aware and has complete knowledge of all things. Any questions?

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

We must think about this area. Let me hear some feedback, not how mostly icon explains it. What does this area done for you?

00:34:37 --> 00:34:39

What does it done for you? We've spent

00:34:41 --> 00:34:45

two sessions almost just on this one area. What's it done to you?

00:34:46 --> 00:35:00

If you don't have an answer to this, then hopefully this is the time where you'll turn that key and you'll start fueling. So this A can be meaningful to it could refer

00:35:00 --> 00:35:04

Flip something in your life and uplift you in some way. Yep.

00:35:07 --> 00:35:08

I think I think

00:35:20 --> 00:35:38

good. So for our students online, so we have a student present here. And, you know, when you read the translation of the area, it seems pretty basic basic until you delve into tip seal. And you connected as a parable to the heart of a believer, then it really comes to life.

00:35:39 --> 00:35:41

And in conclusion, at least with this area,

00:35:42 --> 00:35:49

this is the area that will help you affirm a loss presence.

00:35:51 --> 00:35:52

Remember, I used to say to you that

00:35:54 --> 00:36:03

you can't see or touch or hear Allah subhanho wa Taala can hear His voice, you talk to him, but he doesn't talk back to you.

00:36:04 --> 00:36:08

You can't like sit with him or see him in a dream nothing, not in this world.

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

So how do you still believe in Him? And these are, these are some of the things that atheists and and people who like to hoard denounce religion as a whole or the concept of God is one of the arguments they use. How do you know he's real? Why you believe in something that ultimately doesn't even exist? It's just a figment of the imagination. They bring up these arguments. You don't know i It's annoying. You just know when you have it in your heart you know?

00:36:37 --> 00:36:45

So you at some point just draw the line in conversations like that so yeah, you know, when you have it and you you just know you know that Allah is there

00:36:47 --> 00:36:50

let's continue on to verse 36. Shall we?

00:36:52 --> 00:36:52


00:36:54 --> 00:36:54

go ahead

00:37:01 --> 00:37:01


00:37:06 --> 00:37:11

yeah, people can be praying and going for Hajj and doing it all

00:37:13 --> 00:37:15

and still end up in Jahannam

00:37:16 --> 00:37:19

why? Because your body did it all.

00:37:20 --> 00:37:22

Your feet walked in out of

00:37:23 --> 00:37:27

your limbs went in total cool or sujood

00:37:28 --> 00:37:31

but your heart didn't make hedge your heart didn't pray

00:37:33 --> 00:37:44

your heart It was an honest this is reminding us hey, you know on the outside your congratulations, you're doing great. But if your heart is not there with the process of them say

00:37:45 --> 00:38:28

I let what in the field just study mandala in your heart in your body. There's that thing flesh. Either solid had solid has adjusted Akula if it's good, and you fuel it and you take care of it, then your whole body and everything in you everything around you will be okay. Are you there faster that festival just to cool. It was interesting. The process that amuses the saying word fest said fast said which is similar to fist. So if you leave it and you corrupt it and you feed it garbage all the time, you feed it useless information. You feed it just Instagram and Tiktok all day and night. Then your whole or see your body will reflect that to you just gonna, you're gonna talk like

00:38:28 --> 00:38:36

what you watch. You're going to act like what you watch. You're going to behave like people around you. And you're Luiza

00:38:37 --> 00:38:52

in Amen, especially than when you study a yet like this. You'll appreciate that for me. I'm gonna miss Paula, rotten Hiren era that anybody who has an Adam's weight of Eman, you'll see the blessings of that you'll see the result of it like you'll appreciate it.

00:38:54 --> 00:38:55

Okay, anything else

00:38:57 --> 00:39:20

it's a really it's a really tough a but uh, but also an important one and I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala opens our hearts that we receive its message in the best way in sha Allah. Okay, true believers next he butene ethanol, la whoa and total for our Buju and total federal fee how where youth karate has Okay.

00:39:22 --> 00:39:45

Watch what true believers do. Why this area because we finished a tour No, the theme of this area is now this is what makes you a real true authentic believers genuine believer in the sight of Allah Now you have both the physical and the spiritual. It's now together so how do you know you have it? Here's another way that pour and teaches us how you know you've got it okay.

00:39:47 --> 00:39:56

in homes that Allah allowed to be elevated. What homes are we talking about? Homes in this area is Masjid.

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

Okay, it's not your

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

house it's the msgid

00:40:03 --> 00:40:06

Allah says allowed to be elevated and total Farah

00:40:08 --> 00:40:17

How are masjids elevated? So obviously I put our Masjid as the prime image for you to appreciate.

00:40:19 --> 00:40:20

Masjid is a place.

00:40:22 --> 00:40:24

Remember mustard comes from what word guys?

00:40:25 --> 00:40:28

Masjid comes from what word?

00:40:30 --> 00:40:31

So dude, okay,

00:40:33 --> 00:40:42

dude or Sagitta, prostrate mustard, the place where you prostrate. So that's why it gets its name. Allah says

00:40:43 --> 00:41:36

that in these homes. So the first hint of how you test the litmus test to see if you're a real believer is your Masjid is like your home. Like, you go to a masjid and you thirst to be there just like how you thirst to be in your own house. You nurture and care the masjid, the same way you nurture and care your own house, you see something, you know a rapper on the floor, you pick it up, because if it was on your house floor, you do the same. So you have that attitude, that mindset that's beautiful that Allah captures that, and uses that word to also describe the mystery. It's like your house as well. Then Allah says, elevated, it should be above the influence of darkness, so

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

elevated, you come to a place like this. Because a masjid is a place of Nord.

00:41:44 --> 00:42:00

This is where you come for, to fuel your heart. So remember, we said, Your heart needs to be fueled so that the light can keep burning of Amen, it can keep on going. So where's the gas station for your heart?

00:42:01 --> 00:42:02

We're in it.

00:42:04 --> 00:42:12

Any msgid anywhere. This is where you come for that stuff. Now, here is where the problems begin.

00:42:14 --> 00:42:23

And his name should be remembered in it. So here's your next point. So you treat the msgid like your own house.

00:42:24 --> 00:42:25

Number two.

00:42:26 --> 00:43:22

In many ways, this is obviously more important than our own house because of what it is and what it represents. And then number three, what makes the masjid so important that it's elevated above and beyond all homes on this planet. It's because of Allah's name. It's being remembered constantly in these places. So you might miss a thought all we hear in there, but the microphone is still going to be announcing Tada, we applaud and will still be reciting whether you're there on or not. So it's a place where Allah's name is constantly being reminded, when we have these classes every week, you don't come to these classes, because you registered for a program and you need to be there. But you

00:43:22 --> 00:44:15

come here, ultimately, because you want this to come to life, every time you walk in here, that's why you're here. You know, one of the things that I try to achieve in my way of teaching is a try to present what I know or what I'm teaching in a way that could hopefully cause my students to just think. And if you're just thinking about something in your life, and it was ignited here with me, oh man, I don't care how much times you fail your quizzes you pass in front of me, and especially in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala you are the student that I that I very proud of that also encourages me. So you come here primarily for this, but that's where the problems begin.

00:44:17 --> 00:44:18

Because what have masjids become,

00:44:20 --> 00:44:31

oh man, one of the main reasons why msgid must be pure from evil things is because to attract the people who don't attend them.

00:44:32 --> 00:44:34

This is where the problems begin.

00:44:35 --> 00:44:59

Because in this day and age masjids for many are a place where you come you meet up with people and the gossip, the backbiting, the dishonesty, the corruption, the mismanagement, and and and and all

00:45:00 --> 00:45:04

Those things you've always seen and heard in your life

00:45:05 --> 00:45:06

that happen

00:45:07 --> 00:45:11

in a place that should be elevated above and beyond those things.

00:45:12 --> 00:46:00

You know, I talked to a student one time, who was in a poor en class. And he memorize the whole core. And then one day I see him and he used to lead taught all we in the masjid. One day, I saw him and he had earphones on. And he came into a class I was teaching where the class was only for registered students. So it wasn't open to the public. And he walks in, and he sits at the back. And he has these massive earphones on. So he's obviously not listening to me. He sits at the back and I look, I recognize this is the same half of the Koran that led us in taraweeh. So after, when all was said and done, obviously, you know, I went up to him a Somali come. It's going on, I haven't seen

00:46:00 --> 00:46:02

you in a while. What do you up to these days, I

00:46:04 --> 00:46:08

said, Look, I just came here, because my dad dropped me off here, but I'm not Muslim anymore.

00:46:10 --> 00:46:16

So I got into a conversation. And eventually he's like, I can't stand Muslims

00:46:17 --> 00:46:19

can't stand the way they talk to me,

00:46:20 --> 00:46:40

can stand and his core and teacher in particular is what made him shift. said every time I messed up on an area, or I didn't memorize my lesson, he would like punish me for it. It embarrassed me in front of the rest of the students. And I hated that. I hated him for it. So I'm done.

00:46:42 --> 00:46:49

I never saw his brother again. After that. I don't know where he is. This guy, like, like I said, was leading us in taraweeh.

00:46:50 --> 00:46:56

Another minister and he was leading. So Allah made him an Imam, and look where he ended up.

00:46:57 --> 00:47:19

So and where did it how did he get that experience that caused him to end and make that transition, he got it from the place that's supposed to be elevated. And Allah's remembrance is supposed to flourish. He had one of the worst experiences of his life in that place. And there's lots of stories like that, unfortunately.

00:47:20 --> 00:47:21


00:47:23 --> 00:47:51

I don't know what to say, except that I really hope and pray that generally speaking, I know there's some students that are much better than others, but generally, without pointing any fingers that I hope and I pray that all of our masajid continue to be purified from a lot of the evil things that people bring to it. And aside from the congregation,

00:47:52 --> 00:48:11

sometimes that evil is within the people who have founded and built that place are sometimes the most corrupt. So I pray that Allah subhanaw taala flushes out evil like that and replaces it with something beneficial Allahumma me

00:48:12 --> 00:48:21

Fi hi fi Hussmann you said the hula hoop fee her bill whoa do we will assign His perfection is declared. So here's number four.

00:48:22 --> 00:48:38

So the remembrance of Allah Here's the fourth thing is that in the masjid as well. Allah's perfection is being declared in the mornings in the evenings. It's not talking about just saw that everybody knows what test b is.

00:48:39 --> 00:49:13

So this b What separates it from Victor? Victor is more generic tests B is focused on elevating the status and authority of Allah subhanho wa taala. So an example of to speak is when you Say Subhan Allah, or would you say La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah you see like a mountain destroyed or demolition that happens or something and you're like, Lord, you know, you're raising Allah's power and status and authority in your life. Let's test the

00:49:15 --> 00:49:42

we'll talk more about this later on in the suit as well. Okay. Ben will do we will assign in the mornings and in the evenings as well. In other words, that's poor man's way of saying do it all the time. All the time. Okay. Now we are going to look at three types of people mentioned in the Surah three types of people, three categories of people that are mentioned here. Anybody have any questions?

00:49:43 --> 00:49:50

Okay. Regina will tell him t data will be your own and victory lap.

00:49:51 --> 00:49:59

Men that business that business does not distract them. So Allah is going to talk about the first type of people

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

businessmen and women, okay, that's number one. And I've written it down. So you'll you'll see it all on, you know, unfold. So the first type, you can write it down, type number one, the focused one,

00:50:14 --> 00:50:21

just write the focus one, and nothing else, we'll come back to this afterwards, the focused one, okay, who's this person?

00:50:23 --> 00:50:29

Money, wealth status, doesn't get to their heads.

00:50:30 --> 00:50:38

So all the things that the world shifts and associates with power and control.

00:50:39 --> 00:51:18

The first group, Allah says that there are individuals who do extremely well, business wise, on the political ladder, authority wise status, they might be a celebrity. So they have the admiration of hundreds and millions of people. They're there, they seem to have it all. But it doesn't get to their head. Why? What a big victory lap, it doesn't distract them, and not even sales, don't distract them. So two things just mentioned here, business and sales.

00:51:19 --> 00:51:20

What's the difference?

00:51:22 --> 00:51:34

Business is a combination of things. You have the accountants, you have the sales department, you have, you know, the CEO, you have the secretary, that's all part of a business, right.

00:51:35 --> 00:51:50

So you can give or take, you can fire one or two people and you can shrink the business and you can make it under whatever you want. You can play around with all of that. You can play around with your business at the end of the day, you can downsize, you can upsize whatever you want. There's one area you can't,

00:51:52 --> 00:52:36

when a customer walks into your business, now you're going through COVID times. And every person that walks through that door, you need them. You need whatever they're going to buy, you need that money like you're in desperate times. The focus one is when it's time for Sala when it's time to go for Jumar even when the sale walks in, and it's not just your regular customer, this is the customer that walks in and their shopping cart gets filled with every row and every item and you're like whoa. You haven't had one of those in years.

00:52:37 --> 00:52:50

You haven't had one of those in years. And they're just buying it all and they're coming with like two and three cart folds of items and you're like oh and so grateful. There's only one thing the event for Juma is being called right now.

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

What do you do?

00:52:55 --> 00:52:57

Just say it it's like you know,

00:52:58 --> 00:53:01

get it's a tough thing to get it out. What do you do?

00:53:04 --> 00:53:20

Allah says either new de la sala teamie Yomi. Juma so specifically with Juma when the call for prayer is being proclaimed. fest sow Isla Vickery let run to the remembrance of Allah whether will be your

00:53:22 --> 00:53:23

stop the sale

00:53:25 --> 00:53:27

leave it it's

00:53:28 --> 00:53:42

my I wouldn't want to be in that situation to be honest with I just I wouldn't want to be. It is a real test from Allah. Allah says whether whether it'll just shut the doors or tell that customer you know what?

00:53:44 --> 00:53:45

You'll have to come back later.

00:53:46 --> 00:54:39

You have to leave. Who does that? In the world that we live in? It's a tough thing. Allah says that person what economies solidarity what Eater is care? They also do you see the difference between what you saw Lee as opposed to accommodate your sada if you comment to Sala you establish prayer, as opposed to suddenly where you just pray was the difference between the two? The one who was just praying sake Okay, ma'am, sir. I'll catch you out real quickly because I don't want to miss the last hurrah Cara. That's he prays he'll waltz in at the last rocker before the Imam makes Salam Alaikum and gets Is that okay? I got Juma and get back into the store. But he upon that you'll Sala nothing

00:54:39 --> 00:54:56

is going to get in the way of your Salah period, nothing. You don't care where you are. You're going to find a way to pray and you're going to find a way to answer the call when the call is being made. I swear we all want to be that's where we want to be lay upon it to slaughter.

00:54:57 --> 00:54:58

What Eater is

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

and they also

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

establish our and pay their second. What's another quality? You have full Nyoman to to a level fee and Kulu Al Azhar, they fear a Day when the hearts will be rattled to collab. Remember I told you a word who thought over, which meant something that's consistently moving. So remember, we talked about the hijab. And if she's consistently having to fix it and adjust it, that back and forth with the hijab every day of her life, that also counts and is rewarded. And it's part of her worship with Allah.

00:55:41 --> 00:55:44

Top Club, is that your heart?

00:55:45 --> 00:56:18

It's too scared to finish that sale because of missing what it's what what you're going to miss. It's too scared to do that. So the fear causes your heart to beat even faster. You're like, oh my god, I can't miss all that I gotta get. I gotta go, I gotta go. If you have that, you have a man that is established in you. So you have to decide if that's the kind of man that you have. Alico Lobo will absorb it's in your heart but it's also it causes your eyes to be like this.

00:56:19 --> 00:56:25

So even if your heart is not there, you're just like, oh my god Sala just passed.

00:56:26 --> 00:56:41

So your eyes are also has that element of fear in it. You guys with me so far? So that's what this is, is concentrating on so the first person they're so focused, they're in Islam and they're in it to stay

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

don't forget the however, the ones that your saw that guy was this guy. Leah is the home Allahu who acts and Mr. Emmylou? Why is he to whom in fogli. So for this person, the focused one.

00:56:57 --> 00:57:03

They are also what I titled the ones here saw that guy who is what's this have to do with anything, watch the A,

00:57:04 --> 00:57:10

so that Allah will compensate them with the best of deeds.

00:57:11 --> 00:57:13

So in other words,

00:57:14 --> 00:57:16

on the Day of Judgment,

00:57:17 --> 00:57:24

that individual that established worship in their life, on the Day of Judgment,

00:57:25 --> 00:57:34

all of us are going to come to Allah, with loopholes in our worship, weaknesses, flaws and mistakes everybody's going to have in

00:57:36 --> 00:57:49

this area confirms that if you come to Allah, with colbyn, selling with a sound and pure heart, that you tried your best to fuel with guidance and even

00:57:50 --> 00:58:05

a low we'll take that one solid yet you had that you get once a year. Everybody know what that's all about is that once a year saw that just comes where 100% of the Sala you are focused,

00:58:06 --> 00:58:21

you're listening, or you're reciting. And the tears come out, and you're such that he wasn't rushed. Every vicar and da you know, you said it, and you prayed and you finished it. And you did? You're the kid that saw that.

00:58:23 --> 00:58:27

That comes sometimes once a year, maybe even less than that. Allah says, Okay.

00:58:28 --> 00:58:35

Because of that one solar, I'm going to make all the rest of your solar justice perfect.

00:58:36 --> 00:59:22

So you're graded on on that curve of that one prayer? It's amazing. Why is he the home and family. So the first thing that this individual gets, because they said no to that transaction, because they stayed focused. Allah says number one, I'm going to look at all those the best that you performed. You probably made a bunch of umbrellas or hats. I'm going to take that one hedge that man your heart did it to you were really sincere, you did everything perfect. And I'm going to use that now and accept all the other hedge as a result. That's the first reward amazing and so much hope in it. Then number two, Allah says, Wei Zhi de hoomin fogli

00:59:24 --> 00:59:47

you get more. So number one is that they're graded on a curve. And number two, Allah takes your highest score and makes that your average. And then number three, Allah will increase you to the point that it can't be quantified. So now Allah accepted all of your prayers and your VIP kid and all those classes that you went to and all those lectures and then Allah will add more to

00:59:49 --> 00:59:50

it's amazing.

00:59:52 --> 00:59:54

It's absolutely incredible Subhan Allah,

00:59:56 --> 01:00:00

that Allah will just do that. Just why because you're you're you're really putting

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

yourself, you're really pushing yourself. You got no desks or tables in front of you. But you're pushing yourself, you're still coming. That's amazing. You're part of this a p&l.

01:00:14 --> 01:00:15

You got to wear those face masks.

01:00:16 --> 01:00:24

And they get annoying, but you're doing it because you're staying focused. You want a lot except you're part of this a, you know, you know,

01:00:25 --> 01:00:33

guys don't ever for a moment, take this what we have right now for granted, I know is different from what we're used to.

01:00:35 --> 01:01:25

But I hope that this a could give you this like, sense of hope, this way that you're studying and you're sacrificing just for Allah. Could be the moment that the rest of your life is all accepted with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and sha Allah. Because why? Allah put you through this, you know, difficult time you came and sit beside your brother or sister you gave me shake hands, like all this stuff, but you still came for his remembrance. This could be the reason that on the day of Jack Ma was gonna say you know that one class you took with that? God help us teacher of yours. And you You stayed and you concentrated as best as you can? Yeah, you fell asleep once in a while and don't

01:01:25 --> 01:01:59

think your teacher didn't notice. You fell asleep. But that's okay. You're still there. You were still there. And it was okay. Because you kept you fought your sleep, you fought everything and you came, I'm going to accept all those classes and seminars and those lectures on YouTube that you are except all of it and give you even more. So may Allah count us from amongst them Allahumma me. So Allah will increase you to the point. And then way over Zuko yr zuccon, yr RecycleMania will be higher, etc. That's the third thing.

01:02:00 --> 01:02:04

And then Allah gives provision to whomever he wants. In other words,

01:02:05 --> 01:02:22

in other words, that's the third point here, allow will just keep giving you more and more and more. So you will have Yazeed so you'll have more, and then you'll have an endless infinite amount. So you just keep going.

01:02:23 --> 01:02:45

And it's all because of that one moment of that one act of worship you did. It just it caused this ball to just keep rolling or it got bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger, so big that you've lost track of it that you just you don't know where it is anymore. That's what Allah subhanaw taala does. Okay, any questions?

01:02:46 --> 01:02:47

Are we doing guys?

01:02:50 --> 01:02:51


01:02:55 --> 01:02:56


01:02:59 --> 01:03:05

It could also reflect that and that specifically, no, but it does entail that as well.

01:03:06 --> 01:03:26

Okay, so when you have that fear in you, and it's pushing you to do more and more, so part of the thing that also feeds that fear is yes, death in and of itself. So it's definitely captured in that in the wording as well. Okay. Well, Medina kefalos So the parable of the disbelievers now

01:03:28 --> 01:03:33

here's the type number two, the delusional one, so just write down the delusional one.

01:03:34 --> 01:03:45

Okay, that's type number two. So type number one, that focused one, type number two, the delusional one. So here's what Allah said about the delusional one. Okay, type number two.

01:03:50 --> 01:03:50


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

Well, the Dena cat photo amalgam and as for those that disbelief,

01:04:00 --> 01:04:05

so that I get to know it's not there. Okay, there's no email, there's nothing.

01:04:07 --> 01:04:15

Amanda home, their deeds. Kiss Saurabh is like a mirage sutra.

01:04:16 --> 01:04:21

In Arabic, when you have a drink of water or anything, when you drink something, it's called shut off.

01:04:23 --> 01:04:31

But if you take the letter sheen, and you replace it with a scene, it's subtle job, which means you're dying of thirst.

01:04:32 --> 01:04:39

It's amazing. It look look at the miraculous nature of Arabic. How do you write A cian how many dots are on

01:04:41 --> 01:04:41


01:04:43 --> 01:04:49

so think of the dots as the water that's quenching your thirst. If you erase it, then you're dying of thirst and that's set up.

01:04:50 --> 01:04:55

So this is says they are like set up.

01:04:56 --> 01:04:59

Their deeds are like a mirage in a unique

01:05:00 --> 01:05:21

portion of land. So everybody knows what a Mirage is. So there's a mirage, that's a picture of a mirage, you see the water, it's there, but it's really not, it appears as though it's there. So the one who disbelieves their good deeds, Allah is comparing it to like that of a mirage.

01:05:22 --> 01:05:39

So they're doing a lot of good stuff. Okay, fine. And they've convinced themselves. So here's the point, they've convinced themselves, because I volunteer, and I give back and I do so much for my community and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, I don't need God.

01:05:40 --> 01:05:52

I don't need to pray all the time. I don't need to go for Hajj and pull myself through that forget it. Look how much stuff I do. Anytime somebody comes to my door for a donate, I donate.

01:05:53 --> 01:06:30

You know, you get those annoying letters in the mail, sign or send a check back or, you know, if you pay $1, you get free membership for a year, blah, blah, blah, they respond to all of those things. So why do I need to go through all of that? Why do I need religion? Why do I need a set of laws and ethics to follow? No. So that's what Allah is comparing to? Allah is saying those individuals are like this mirage that you see. So what is it? Let's continue. Their deeds are like a mirage in some sort of, in the middle of a desert in some corner in some portion of the land, and the extremely thirsty one.

01:06:31 --> 01:06:44

Until he gets to it. So they see the Mirage, and they go up to because they're dying of thirst. But when they arrive there, he doesn't find anything.

01:06:46 --> 01:06:47

He doesn't find anything.

01:06:48 --> 01:06:50

So that's the parable

01:06:51 --> 01:06:55

for somebody who rejects Allah,

01:06:56 --> 01:07:04

that even and they still do, quote unquote, good things. That's the comparison of the luggages.

01:07:05 --> 01:07:06

So Eman is everything.

01:07:08 --> 01:07:10

There are good people, however,

01:07:11 --> 01:07:50

that may have other reasons why they never came to a lot. But they were good people. They did a lot of amazing things for people in their lives, then they died. Will they go straight to the Hellfire will they be punished? You and I do not ever get to answer that. All you say all we say Allah will decide because Allah is just and he rewards all people for for the good that they do. This group in this A is the most extreme. They have deliberately rejected Allah.

01:07:51 --> 01:08:18

They've deliberately rejected him. Why? Because of all the good that they quote unquote have done. So Allah says your life has now become like a mirage. And when you get to thinking on the Day of Judgment, now I'm going to reap the rewards that I still made it like those people, those believers those people have Amen. Then they realize wait a minute, it just disappeared I thought it was going to be there. And instead who they find

01:08:20 --> 01:08:40

had either, who will EMEA Judah who Shire Wawa Jeddah la her in the fella fell he server instead they came right face to face with Allah and then he fulfills the promise that he made Allah who said he said and a lot is incredibly quick and accountability.

01:08:42 --> 01:08:58

Look at the bottom there guys. Can you see the quote at the bottom of the screen? Whoever gets so write down this quote this is a principle in the entire quarter N whenever Allah says what they deserve there are several a yet

01:08:59 --> 01:09:28

in the Koran that is translated. Now they will get what they deserve. Now they are given what they deserve throughout the Quran. Every time you see that wording, it is always in reference to the Hellfire game whenever you see what they deserve, meaning it's going to go or be connected to the hellfire. So just keep that in mind.

01:09:31 --> 01:09:31


01:09:32 --> 01:09:33


01:09:36 --> 01:09:36

Any questions?

01:09:38 --> 01:09:39

Okay, we're almost done.

01:09:41 --> 01:09:51

Oh, kill volume and here's type number three guys. Okay. Just ignore that picture for a moment. Okay, the evil one. Okay, the evil one.

01:09:53 --> 01:10:00

That's type number three. So the focused than the delusional. Now the straight up

01:10:00 --> 01:10:09

Evil One. Okay, I will kill the little mounting fee bad Illa G or it's like the depth of the ocean

01:10:10 --> 01:10:26

away from above gets him although Matt from volume means that the bottom of the ocean where it's pitch dark Sun never gets there, okay? That's the volume that Allah says or like the depth of the ocean a wave from above gets him

01:10:29 --> 01:11:09

away from above gets him feedbackly Liu Ji, you know ocean in this area. Okay, well see this word here. That's this word here. Lu G. Bajo is also a word for the ocean. What's the difference? I wrote it here low G love Jean is when you're in the middle of the ocean and you cannot see its end. Just like that image. You're just standing there and you can't see no mountains. You can't see no Island. You can't see an end to it that's called logy in the in the Quran, okay? So they're at the bottom

01:11:11 --> 01:11:52

of the ocean. And they're also somewhere in Luigi, which means that they whenever they get to the top, they don't know what direction they're going where they're supposed to be where they aren't nothing, okay, they've lost complete direction. El Shehu Meldrum in felpa Here another wave gets him from on the top so a wave washes him away. So he gets up to the top he's able to swim let's just say there's some debris in the water so he gets on some debris and he's able to start moving the how all of a sudden guess what ends up happening. A massive wave comes by and washes him down again.

01:11:53 --> 01:11:56

And then it can do and then another wave comes.

01:11:57 --> 01:12:29

Mel John Memphis LP So look you see that a repeated itself legit Yaksha who know John Min felpa here now John min felt heat. It's one of the only places in the entire poor end where the exact same words come consecutively after another. It's the one of the only places that does this. So Allah says one wave washed him away. So he fell to the bottom again. Got up another wave came and did it again fell to the bottom okay.

01:12:30 --> 01:12:31

Men felt the heat the hub

01:12:32 --> 01:12:41

and above him are heavy clouds sahab Is another word for clouds. sahab Is the kind of cloud that brings heavy rain.

01:12:42 --> 01:13:13

And it's the kind of rain that's destructive. So it's causing massive flood hurricanes, huge waves, so on and so forth. Right. Although momentum barreled or have helped pop out. Now he's at the bottom and there are layers of darkness upon the other. So not only has he gone to the bottom, but somehow he's just gone deeper and deeper. Now he's really stuck. Okay, when he puts forth his hand he cannot even see it. So he's at a point now where he can't even see in front of him and even his own hands.

01:13:15 --> 01:13:30

Either Raja Yoga hula Mia KD or all her woman lemmya Charlie law hula hoop, Nora, Amanda Humi. Nora and Ella did not give any light than their if Allah, whomever Allah subhanaw taala does not give light to then there is no light for him. So what is this I talking about?

01:13:31 --> 01:13:34

When he does an evil deed, this is number one.

01:13:36 --> 01:13:51

So he's gotten one morning, but he just gets back up and keeps on going. Life is all the same. Nothing moves him. I put the image of this guy, Nico Jensen, right, Jenkins and he was

01:13:53 --> 01:14:33

a criminal in the United States that committed some of the most vicious crimes in the history of the United States, right? killed several people, people and his case was really famous. It was all over the news and everything. And you know, obviously you can tell, even his appearance was the subject of conversation for many as well. He used to scar his face when he was in prison. And it was really vicious and showed no remorse. And as a result, the judge gave him four death sentences. Like I don't even know what that means. Right? But the point is, he was sentenced to death.

01:14:35 --> 01:14:39

But the the thing that I want you to look at is look at the image that's him in court.

01:14:41 --> 01:14:45

He's just sitting there, no tears, no, I'm sorry. Nothing.

01:14:47 --> 01:14:55

When people get to a point, and I think for the most part we are seeing and experiencing that.

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

Like I said to you in in one of the earlier sessions, we live in a

01:15:00 --> 01:15:10

Time where a guy will get in his car and just kill four innocent people on the side of the road and just go home and have breakfast. Just go home and eat, no big deal.

01:15:11 --> 01:15:17

So the evil one is not just the physical aspect, but even spiritually,

01:15:19 --> 01:15:38

anything that they have done that was wrong or evil, it doesn't move them they don't feel that sense of remorse and regret or feel like they've done anything wrong. Instead, they'll come to you and say things I don't judge me. You don't know my life, you don't know me, just leave me alone. So cool, trying to help you try to advise you.

01:15:40 --> 01:15:57

So Allah categorizes the third group, in that same imagery that they're like on at the bottom of the ocean, in darkness when they're involved in all this evil. And the moment Allah brings them to the service in meaning, the moment Allah gives them some relief.

01:15:58 --> 01:16:25

They allow evil to cast them right back to the bottom. Allah gives them another chance, they allow us to cast them back to the bottom again, to a point where now they're in such a state that they can't even see their own hands, meaning they have reached to such a state of evil, that they have no sensitivity or care for anybody or anything anymore.

01:16:27 --> 01:16:36

So the worst of the worst sins and crimes does nothing. Do you guys agree? Do you think we, we we live in those times now.

01:16:38 --> 01:16:48

It's really messed up, man. It's really, really messed up. The times that we live in what people are willing to do, for the reasons that they're willing to do it.

01:16:51 --> 01:16:52

Let's just see here.

01:16:53 --> 01:16:54


01:16:55 --> 01:17:00

Not sure if we'll finish all of this, but let's see. We have about 15 minutes left. Okay.

01:17:01 --> 01:17:22

Let me tell me, Allah. So those are three categories of people. Now Allah moves to a different theme. So that theme we're done. So you've learned about those three different groups and what the result is for those three different groups. Right, the third and the latter being the most severe of all right?

01:17:23 --> 01:17:30

Watch the transition. So look what we just finished talking about. The most evil of evil of all evils.

01:17:31 --> 01:17:46

Look what came next. And then Tara and Allah, you said the hula hoop manifests and work your way out? Or Tyrell sofort Allah says Have they not seen indeed that Allah who is they?

01:17:47 --> 01:17:50

Have they not see who's they?

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

So yeah,

01:17:56 --> 01:17:57


01:17:58 --> 01:18:12

Guess who's they brothers? Who's Allah making reference to the previous three a it? Especially the last two? Okay, the delusional and the evil one. The focused one

01:18:13 --> 01:18:28

already has this A, the other two groups don't they see that everything in the skies and Earth have made tests be declared his perfection? They've made us be

01:18:30 --> 01:19:13

and the birds even glide. Whoa, okay. So all of everything in the skies and the earth. So what is also Allah subhanaw taala also talking about now, Allah is including animals that they have their own form of tests be and the birds their tests be, is soft fat. It's when they're gliding in the sky. That's the birds way of making to speak to Allah. Another Hadith our Prophet Ali's thought was lamb describes that the chirping of birds especially in the early morning hours, is also part of their tsp.

01:19:15 --> 01:19:26

Do birds do anything else to worship Allah? Take a look Kulu pada Ali masala to who would this be ha. Allah says every one of them knows how to perform their sada

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

birds pray they have Salah as well.

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

Animals prey they have their Sala and that's where I found that eagle on the right side. They're kind of like he's in ruku

01:19:40 --> 01:19:47

Yeah, when it's also time they've got their own awesome they've got their own photo. They've got their own mug club. They've got their own saw they're

01:19:48 --> 01:19:55

incredible. So you you want to know what the lesson is here for you and I it's not just wow Mashallah.

01:19:56 --> 01:19:57

It's my god.

01:19:58 --> 01:20:00

Birds are doing something

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

I'm not doing,

01:20:02 --> 01:20:12

frogs are making to speak when they croak all night long. They're annoying. But now I realize actually that's there to speak in front of Allah.

01:20:14 --> 01:20:18

And if these animals can do it,

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

then you've got to ask yourself, and when I say you, not you in particular, just hypothetically, you've got to ask yourself,

01:20:29 --> 01:20:41

What in the world happened to you that you can't do, especially for those who call themselves Muslims, but don't pray or don't faster, I'm still Muslim, leave me alone.

01:20:43 --> 01:20:47

That's where now animals start becoming little hopeless for you.

01:20:48 --> 01:21:29

Because they're doing it. So the next time tomorrow, inshallah when you're out and about and you see a bird are so seagulls, those annoying pigeons that are going all over the place, and you see them gliding, just remember soft fat, and you're like, Oh, my God, they're making to speak right now. Those birds, like 50 million of them that are sitting on the cable wires when you're driving by, and they're just sitting there, and then all of a sudden, boom, they all fly together, all in synchronized motion, and they go their way, they could get scared, something could have triggered it. Or now you can add to those, those possibilities that it was probably solid time for them.

01:21:31 --> 01:21:31

It's amazing.

01:21:32 --> 01:21:39

It's amazing. It makes you look at animals in a whole different way. Makes you look at these creatures in a whole different way. Subhanallah

01:21:44 --> 01:21:56

Yeah, so that's a good thing that you mentioned, a lot of people associate when you go to the carrabba. You see the veal birds, and you see them as if they're doing fall off.

01:21:59 --> 01:22:10

Allah knows best. We don't know what they're doing exactly, we just know that they're in some form of submission to Allah, this A it tells us they're doing some kind of test beer.

01:22:11 --> 01:22:31

But don't go overboard and become overzealous and start attaching weird things to these animals. So the tawaf thing is one of those things, just because they happen to be going in a circle, unless you count seven rounds.

01:22:32 --> 01:23:17

And even after that, you still can say, oh my god, they just made the off, you know, and they skip the Blackstone. So that's okay, like you can do that don't add more to what it is. So usually when people say that, I discourage them from doing that, I mean, it's possible, but we just don't know. So just don't even pay attention to it. Okay? Because those same birds also will defecate on top of the caribou which is why on top of that carrabba You see those gold spikes that prevents them from landing. It's not just so that they don't land but it's also they would poop all over the place and and dirty up the Kiswa. So you mean to tell me now the same birds that are doing fall off and then

01:23:17 --> 01:23:22

when they're done, it doesn't make any sense. So the thought thing no

01:23:24 --> 01:24:03

coolant or any masala who would just be her? Every one of them pray and they have their to speak Wallah who are the movie by a firewall? I love the way this A and Allah is fully where Allah has full knowledge of what they're up to. Two words to describe actions in the Quran. Okay, and then we're done. Two words. You heard of Ferran. And Iman. You know how we say well let me know why Mila Solly had the area never says what the Xena Emma know what? faryal slyly hurt? It's always amylose. So these two words, remember them. You can write them down there at the bottom there, Ferrell

01:24:05 --> 01:24:10

and Iman, I will never ask you to write Arabic. So that's why you have it in this form.

01:24:12 --> 01:24:51

Farrell and Harmon. If you're comfortable, if you're familiar with Arabic, then you know how to write this fine lamb and I Niemela. So Farrell is more generic. It's when you do something without an intention. That's ferret. So if I sit down, that's a ferret. If I stand up, that's a ferret. If I walk, that's a ferret. I'm not sitting down because it's an act of worship. I'm not sitting now with the intention, Oh Allah, I shall rest my legs for you. You don't do that I'm in is where the intention is attached to the action. And then obviously the experience and how you perform that action is very different.

01:24:52 --> 01:24:53

Allah says

01:24:55 --> 01:24:59

I know what all of the feral you're doing.

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

What's the idea hinting to?

01:25:05 --> 01:25:07

What does Allah also do with ferrets?

01:25:08 --> 01:25:09

Does he just ignore them?

01:25:11 --> 01:25:13

Does Allah just ignore them?

01:25:15 --> 01:25:22

It's amazing, you know, he, when Allah says this Now, for you and I,

01:25:23 --> 01:25:26

when I'm sitting, just because I need to sit,

01:25:27 --> 01:25:29

that might actually count for something.

01:25:32 --> 01:25:35

If I just walk, like if I just tie my shoelace,

01:25:36 --> 01:25:38

that might actually count for something.

01:25:39 --> 01:25:40

If I button my shirt,

01:25:42 --> 01:25:43

it might count for something.

01:25:44 --> 01:25:49

So the fact that Allah says I'm fully well aware, Eileen,

01:25:50 --> 01:26:06

it means that Allah is paying attention to all of these little things that are routine and trivial trivial to you, there's something to Allah. So what does that tell? What does that how does that make you feel as a believer now? every footstep and movement you do

01:26:07 --> 01:26:13

could potentially be counted for you or what is against this?

01:26:14 --> 01:26:15


01:26:17 --> 01:26:20

Okay. I think what we'll do

01:26:21 --> 01:26:27

is we'll pause there because this section here, yeah, require some conversation.

01:26:28 --> 01:26:53

The imagery that I put here is, if you've noticed already, you notice that sort of to know has a lot of that imagery in. It's got tons of this throughout the store, it's not done yet. One in one amazing thing about our journey through the sorters, we're almost done the surah Okay, we have about 28 or so left. So, if we happen to finish this order earlier,

01:26:54 --> 01:26:57

I will discuss with you something else that I will share with you.

01:26:58 --> 01:27:02

Like we can continue study. You don't have to leave me after Sora nor

01:27:03 --> 01:27:08

you will all be compelled to remain. No one will go anywhere.

01:27:11 --> 01:27:48

So not to worry at all. It might look like we're actually rushing or going quickly. No, no, we have, there's always something to learn with our deen and we'll continue to do that. So with that being said for our students online as well, may Allah subhanho wa Taala reward all of you for joining us. We're going to pause here at verse number 43. And like I said, you know, there are handouts for you to have so it'll help you keep track of everything that we're doing. So please do take the time to at least save those you can save them on your phones if you want to just keep them there. That so you're welcome to do that as well. You don't have to necessarily print them and bring them to class.

01:27:48 --> 01:28:11

Okay, so panicle Lahoma will become the cashier will learn to stop you'll go to relay We ask Allah subhana wa Taala except from us our efforts Allah whom I mean that just that como la Hara thank you all for the students in particular who are in class and present with me for being here male ly so they'll reward you and return you safely to your ohms Allah whom I mean, what's that Mr. It going to Allah he will work out
