into this Smilla Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Wabag we are at verse number 38 Why? What is one of the things? Yeah, we finished 38 We finished 39
Oh we're on 40 Okay, well let's see you prove it. When do we use Masha? Allah we said this really quickly tell me real quick
mostly for yourself that's the that's the authentics prophetic way. So what do you say when you see something that
normal body what does that mean?
A lot on my body. What does that mean? Was it May Allah bless it right? Now does that mean that you shouldn't say Masha Allah? No. Because culturally as well that when you see something nice and you still say Masha Allah to it, it's still a nice thing. It's still a good thing, okay. It's just like, that's how Arabic is. So it's just like when you say he jab. When you say you know when the sisters were
your hijab? Do you know that hijab is not the actual name for the headscarf?
What is the actual appropriate Arabic name for a headscarf a mug?
So why do we use hijab? Because it's just the culture hijab? Is that what's the hijab is the curtain? It's the you know, these shades, that's called a heater. So, it's the same idea, right? It's not a big deal, but if you really because we're students, we want to try to be precise in as many things as we can, okay.
Poulter Masha Allah by the way, what is the evidence for what I've just said to you about Masha Allah and Allah homothetic what is the evidence?
I didn't tell you this, but I just want to see what was really thinking here. What is the evidence?
It's right in front of you.
What is the evidence for saying Ma sha Allah is for yourself.
And Allahumma Bedich is when you're talking about something else.
It's right in front of you on the screen. Yeah, talk to me.
Take a look at the take a look at the translation of verse 39. Why wasn't it the case that too as you walked into
your garden? You say
person number one thing to person to?
Why is it that when you walked into your garden you didn't say Masha Allah.
See, see the evidence there? Okay. And there's other Hadith and things like that as well. But that is also part of where you get that ruling from right because even in the area, he's talking about his own garden that he said should have said Masha Allah. Okay.
La Quwata illa biLlah did we talk about there is no power in existence except with Allah. How have you heard of how La Quwata illa biLlah what does that mean students when you say law How will
so we say this when in prayer or then when do we say that? After we say what after you hear Excuse me What?
Hi yah Allah, Salah and halal fella in the air then after you hear how your idol salah, what did you respond? Is you respond with La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah. So,
the point is that freeze, it's important to understand what you're saying. So go back to solar. When you say hey, I love solar. Do you know what the word HYAH is? When Arabs they'll say hey, it means that they're, they're telling you to hurry up like get going. Stop delaying. So when the more Edison is saying here, I'll have solemn like come towards prayer. By the way. You see there's a whole fifth in the event itself. You don't say hi yah, Isla sola. You say hey, I love Salah Allah is usually used to describe when you put things on top of other things. So if I put like a cup on top of this table, I will say well Darn, to all caps Island maktab you know, I put this cup on top Allah, I
won't say eel maktab Isla is to to,
but we don't say hi yah, Illa Salah, we say hi, er, I lost Salah. So technically, it would be like, come on prayer.
But we don't translate it like that. We say come to words prayer. And there's a there's a bunch of really interesting reasons why Isla is used here. Since that's not our topic. The point is, is that how Yeah,
is to hurry up, drop what you're doing and make solid the priority. So I guess it kind of alludes to why Isla is like put Isla on top of all of your priorities at that moment when it's all our time. So hi, last solar is not just a command for you to physically get up and go pray. It is also for you to get your attitude and your mindset to prioritize solar above everything else, which is insane. Like we always say that the poor N and Sunnah always addresses the attitude and the mindset of a believer first and foremost, like maybe 80% of porcelain is all about the mind.
And maybe 20% 25% is actual instruction to do certain things, but everything else it's always going to connect you to the mind. It's all about the attitude, you shift that attitude and you control that everything else follows. So the point is, is that why do we say La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah how
Hold means authority and power. So you're saying is that there is no authority or power except with the strength of Allah? Why do you say that after come or prioritize prayer, Come to success prioritize this success? Why do we say La Hollowell? quote I live after that.
So Hajar la sala here Allah, Allah, why do you say La Hawla? Wala Quwata illa biLlah
there's no strength or authority except with the strength and power of Allah.
Do you when it's time for prayer? respond to the call of prayer? Because you know the importance of Salah is that why you respond? No.
There's a lot of people out there that know the importance of Salah does that mean all of them respond? No.
So why is it that when you hear Hallo Salah and halal Feller, you are able to respond to that because of what
it is not.
Because of our ability, yes.
Of course, that's exactly.
You are invited by Allah. In other words, Allah is saying the only reason when you heard Hallo Salah and halal fella, the reason why you say La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah is that you acknowledge? I can't respond to that except by a less controlling authority. Allah is the one that allows my heart to internalize that call and respond to it. Like it's amazing. Every single Salah is an invitation. And Allah gives you the strength and the Iman to respond to the invitation. How many invites you send out in your life once for whatever occasion? Does every single person respond to? No.
Same idea five times a day, there's an invite that gets sent out it's called hyalto Salah and it's called Higher AlFalah
not everybody's gonna respond to that. Okay, so when he says quilter Masha Allahu La Quwata illa biLlah is also reminding us you cannot even say Masha Allah except by Allah strength to give you the knowledge and the ability to verbalize those words like you can't even say Masha Allah to anything except that ALLAH gives you the strength to do that.
Who thinks about Masha Allah this way?
You guys, it's become such a routine for Muslims. It's just become such a part of us that we rarely would ever think. I can't say Masha Allah to anything except that ALLAH empowers me to say it
which I think is really fascinating. In Tony apollomon Camella WELEDA
if you really see me as less than you in terms of money, and children mean a Columbian Camello Yeah, that we said that there were some words missing here that you are actually less in terms of money and children. So what he's saying is that if you think that I'm less because my garden isn't as great as yours, and I can't produce the way that you do you in terms of all the money and wealth and children and family and everything that you you're way way lost more lost than me. Why? Because what does he What does person one have that the other doesn't? So let's just say the poor versus the rich here, the poor guy, what does he have that makes him actually rich in the sight of Allah?
Yeah, it's faith.
We're seeing a world wide global example of that now.
We are this is some of the good things that have come out of this tragedy in our midst, you know is that the Muslims have come together
the Muslims are praying, the Muslims are voicing putting their voice and if they don't have a voice, their two legs are on the streets holding that flag. You know, they're walking they're just present and that the only thing that gets you to do that ultimately at the end of the day is your faith right no matter how tired no matter anybody could just say you know it's their problem in a mine the Muslim world is simply not doing that right for ourselves will be to any higher Amin jannettek Where your CRLA her Spanner Mina summer for to be her sorry then Xalapa so we are at verse number 40 Here let's continue.
Boss will be my master
can give a garden much better than yours who's talking here by the way?
Poor Okay, so, poor person right?
Good. So possibly that Pfizer, maybe perhaps Pfizer remember this word, okay?
If I said it's all over the court and I, sir,
is one of several ways in the Koran, to demonstrate maybe perhaps, there is a possibility that Allah could give me what you have. Could be but the thing is about our Eisah remember this, I said is always used in poor N.
The referring to some thing that the person is not striving for.
They say possibly Allah may gave me may give me wealth.
The person who's using the word they themselves is not thinking of or striving for that possibility. But Allah may give it to them, you see the difference? It's one thing if the person is striving to have that wealth, they won't use our Eisah you know the other word they would use? Lala Have you heard of yeah Latina M iniquity by Lake Como Sam can equity Viola lithiumion publikum La La comme
la la comme is the same meaning as Eisah but LA LA is you are striving to get more tequila in order Matan in during if you actually want that. I say you're not striving for it but Allah may give it to you regardless. See the difference? So this person is saying it's not that I want it. But maybe Allah might still give it to me as opposed to men I've been striving to get the same garden as you but I didn't get it maybe Allah maybe two different sentences you got it. So far I said I'll be a new to any hierarchy. So maybe Allah me my master may give me a garden as much better than yours, Hiram in genetic?
Well, you've seen it how you spend your garden, Allah could send a timely destruction. Are you not to say that?
You have to say that, well, maybe Allah may give me a better car than yours. And maybe when you leave this parking lot, you'll crash and die. Well, I have to say that to somebody, what are you saying I look at send a timely destruction from the sky and it Tiger would turn into dust for to spare sorry, and Zelicah liquid Zelicah is take a look at your notes there.
Zelicah skating rink when you walk or you slide and you lose control is Zelicah. So this fire, or this destruction, which starts to unfold, and you have no control over it's just gonna happen. So I didn't want to do that. say to somebody, you know, you could you can hit your brakes, but your car don't stop and you'll just be gone man who knows where you hit? Who knows where you crash into. It's not like a nice thing to say to somebody.
So why is it happening in Koran?
Yeah, I think he's saying like, it's, you should know that it's possible that this could happen. And this state is not something permanent. So that's okay. Like I can say that you can say to me, you can drive home right now, and possibly crash and die and destroy everything on the 401 you could that could happen to you just letting you know.
Things possible because
yeah, that's a better way of putting it. So the answer is yes and no.
You don't find Do you know of any Hadith of the Prophet Ali's salat wa salam reminding anybody?
Allah can destroy you and burn you and this is what will like explicitly spelling it out.
Think about it. There is no Hadith that the prophet Ali salat wa salam is speaking that way. Unless he's teaching an area. Okay, he's teaching an A, or he's giving a remark a generic reminder, sort of what we do when we come across explicit detail versus we don't say this could be us, you know, but we just say the wrong do and we don't point fingers. The wrongdoers ALLAH is talking about is so and so country or place or Pete we don't do that either. We keep it the way that a is making reference to Allah will call them the volume the wrongdoers Who are these wrongdoers, Allah knows who they are. But here now, this is a conversation between these two guys. And these two men here what the
religions say is that generally speaking, if you are going to speak this way, you just use your wisdom. So if some people you know how we say some people they need to hear it in order to like, understand they need to hear this
kind of one of those situations where this guy that he's talking to, they know each other for some time we've established that right? So maybe this is a way that he knows how to talk to this other person to kind of like maybe he's a little stubborn, maybe he's a bit of a hard head, maybe his garden and all that he accomplished, really has got to him to the point where he's got to be a little bit firm and straightforward with his language. So that's why I say it's yes and no, it's one of those situations where you use your wisdom, your wisdom, and you choose your words carefully, who you're talking to. Some people you can't spell it out to them like that, it may have may have a
counter effect on them. Right? It's one of those things that game when we talk to each other, a lot of Muslims, they just don't think about it. They think that okay, I'm just telling you, I don't mean to upset you, I'm just telling you, because that's how Islam says no, that's not exactly how it works, right. Islam does call us to be wise when we speak to each other, especially on behalf of a lesbian. Okay, so, the disappearances or events that are used to be hammered Well, hold on fell into custody or Allahu taala. So or its water can get sucked in, you won't be able to dig it or seek it out. Okay, so a couple of scenarios here. It's water can be sucked in and out like a massive flood
could come and just destroy everything. Well, he'll Toby 30, he falls by your label Cafe ILM and *a. Fie her, his fruit was surrounded and grabbed and funded design together. So something just happened. What just happened here, students
see the first point there, Allah let it happen. The destruction is now about to unfold this area is the destruction of the rich man's garden.
It will start off his fruit was surrounded. What was it surrounded with?
What were healed Toby 30 here.
Now what is this
destruction surrounded with? So some of the dilemma they say that historically?
There isn't explicit Hadith about this. But it's interesting. It's not something either mentioned as well, because I mean, the details are, they're not mentioned to us, but it's interesting that the stories have been passed on. It's a fire so a fire somehow happened could be from a thunder or lightning or something right lightning strike, whatever.
And it sparked a fire. And his entire garden was surrounded. So look what happened for us the how you call liberal cafe.
Your colorlib collarbone. What's called Bone heart right.
He took both of his hands cafe and he went like this.
That's and then that collarbone he's like no no, no, no, no, no, no. Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. Oh my god. No, no, no, no, no, no.
So he's seeing the garden is slowly starting to burn and get destroyed. So he starts, there's detail is incredibly starts banging his hands together, just like collarbone. Do you know why the heart one of its names is Caliban. Caliban comes from the word color, which means something that's constantly moving, it doesn't stop. So collagen is color because obviously it's constantly beating. So he is like replicating the same action with his hands because he's so scared and frustrated and angry and all of the emotions are kicking in Atlanta and Philadelphia. over everything he spent on it.
Well, he a hall we had to Nyla Lucia and it was turned on top of its trellises. You know what a trellis is,
you know, in the what Yuma call, it's in the backyard. Sometimes you have those like pieces of like wooden fences that your, your vines and your plants will sort of grow in between and around.
That's a trellis so he has all of this. So it's turned on top of its trellises. And if only I hadn't done shirk with my Master, look what he says. So here's what's happening. The scene is unfolding Ah, he's screaming. He's like, no, no, no, no. And then when he sees that the fire or this destruction is starting to gain momentum. And it's going on where he thought it would never touch. He has these massive trellises built and this fire is destruction is going and it's climbing and it's destroying everything. What's the first thing he said?
Yeah, late any LEM who should clear up be ahead.
Students this word late any is the third. The third bullet you see there of the notes. I shouldn't have done shelduck.
So some scholars say this was him making Toba? Okay, so he's repenting when he's saying I shouldn't have done shows. He's basically saying I should not have done what or said or assumed what I did. And so he may tell
But, but this came at the cost of that he lost his wealth. Now, here's the thing I wrote that was good for him. Now you tell me,
is this good? What happened to him?
Is this a good way for him to learn his lesson?
Well, according to Allah, sometimes you have to lose it all, to wake up.
And that's a tough lesson.
That's, that's a rough lesson, I can't tell you how to cope with that.
I can't tell you how to cope with it. It's like somebody who like could just so many examples, like somebody who
starts off a business. And the business itself is all held on, and they become incredibly wealthy. And they say, you know, I've worked 30 years to build this empire. But it's all built on how long
sometimes they have to experience the downfall. You know, the loss of revenue, and the loss of the business or something could just simply be, you know, a fire broke Hill, and destroyed the entire building entire business. And they literally have to start from scratch, in order for them. So that person during all of those years of building that business never offered a rocker in front of Allah never thanked Allah for any of this.
And sometimes that's the wake up call that some people need. This is one of those situations that you don't wish on anybody, Allah decides who gets this. So remember that this situation here did not happen. Because this rich man did something and he destroyed his garden. A loss sent destruction to his garden, see the difference? It wasn't something that he did. Or he ignited a fire or something, He lit a fire to warm his hands up and then it just went out of control. It wasn't something that he initiated for the destruction to start, Allah sent that. So there is a magic see that this kind of lesson of complete total destruction. For the believer to learn from that that kind of lesson only
comes from Allah you can say, You know what, I'm a burn down your business. So you learn a lesson. Why? Well, he heard the story of the Manitou gardens, I'm just following the core and I'm gonna let your building on fire, you can't do that. You're gonna stay on and say, humans can initiate this lesson with anybody.
Learn later, any language should appear to be ahead of students, what's the ship that he committed?
What did we say shark was to associate or to give the rights of Allah to? What did he do? Well, is the show that he did?
Pride, okay? How you're right. How is pride shook
himself more than.
Good, good. So the pride in his efforts, he assumed he was the reason why all of this happened. That's Schilke.
That's what we say in a *ty our internal choke. He's not prostrating to a tree or to an idol. This is the internal Ashok, you know what the LMS say about that. That is the most common showed up that is still well and alive in the OMA today
is the internal Schilke.
Think about it. There are endless, endless examples of internal Shatkin
lots of Muslims fall into and don't realize they do. And it usually is connected to when they associate the results of their efforts and assume that it's because of their efforts. It happened. Look at my son you finish the poor are hungry because I took him every day to talk for youth and affect paid for the best teachers. Man, you didn't teach your son a lift, but you didn't teach him nothing.
It happened because of what because Allah put a lift by tying his chest.
You just happen to facilitate it and make it a little easier.
And if you don't understand that
now, every area, this is really unbelievable. Every area your son has memorized Instead of rewarding you will now punish you.
So be careful.
This is the kind of shirt that the elements say is the most common and prevalent type of shirt. And it's the most difficult to teach. It's the most difficult to understand it's only knowledge that helps us to understand this stuff, okay.
And it continues, while I'm toquilla who fit 20 on Sorona who mean doula when I can and when to zero and you're never going to find any group of people that are going to aid him against an enemy besides Allah. He can't even take them
Imagine himself who's talking here.
Who's saying this?
While I'm toquilla who fear
and you're never going to find any group of people that are going to aid him against an enemy who's speaking here.
You said it.
Who was talking before this area?
rich man right.
Then he made Toba, who took over the conversation.
No after the Toba was made right here.
Then the next day who took over the conversation, really amazing benefit here. Allah now takes over the conversation, right?
Really beautiful benefit here, but you know what the scholars they say. That's the result of sincere Toba. When you make sincere Toba to Allah,
Allah takes over the conversation and now starts giving you promises and starts giving you reassurance why? Because it's a big deal. Every time you you make Toba to Allah. It's a big deal. Let me give you another example. Have you heard this verse? You've all heard this verse.
And you've all heard this verse of our little
what either said Anna Carrie Bell Diani for inequality.
Which a Buddha with a dairy that Darren fell yesterday bully will up aluminio Biela. I love him your show. Where do you hear that verse? Don't even tell me the mean. That verse must sound familiar to some of you. Where do you usually hear that verse?
During a rural Ramadan? This is the verse of the conclusion of Ramadan in the Quran. So all the verses of Ramadan, the last verse about it is this verse. Whenever they ask of me what either account you better d&d, whenever my slave asks about me who's talking here in this area? Allah whenever my slave asks of meaning wherever my slave makes dua to me, for in the Kadeem, I am close.
This incident, a man came to the prophet Ali salatu salam and asked him about Allah.
Maybe Who is Allah? How do I pray to Him? How do I make dua to him?
The moment and man came to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and sincerely wanted to know about how to get closer to Allah who answered the question for in the Kadeem, I am near to them. And I answer all the door as of the color whenever they call upon me who's talking here. So who took over their response? When this man came to the Prophet? I just thought it was him. Allah did. The process sell them is not coded to responding to this man, Allah took over the conversation and responded. So this idea of sincerity with Allah and Allah taking over the response and taking over the conversation is a constant theme throughout the Quran. And it is an honor when Allah takes over the conversation and
gives you reassurances, that is what some of their element they say that this is one of the signs of Allah's pleasure he's pleased with this meant in some way that he repented. So Allah gives them reassurance you're never going to find any group of people that are going to aid him against an enemy what's the enemy by the way?
An enemy young Soto now whom in dunya Allah that's the enemy besides the enemy is anything other than Allah
everything else is the enemy tool meaning if you rely on anything else they become like so here the enemy is not like the in the physical sense it's in the spiritual sense. Okay, so you rely and depend on anything spiritually it becomes like a spiritual enemy to you. Right? Well, Matt can and when toss era and they can't take vengeance for himself. They can't help they can't do anything.
Not Soren Have you heard of Elijah and not sort of law he will fit Nisan means aid.
It's usually translated as help it's not an accurate translation it's like global aid. It's aid on a massive scale. A that can only literally come from all we know all aid comes from Allah but we're talking about a massive global scale. That's called nosode on when I help you if I help you, like open the door, carry your bags, something like that. You don't use Knutsson for that use a different word. Right? Okay.
And let's continue. We're now Lika Louella Hoonah Lee Cal well area to the LEFT he'll help who will Hi Ron Sullivan. Well, how you run Rico. So verse number 40. For
those situations, you should know that the protective help
everybody see the where it says protect
To help, that's when he
Okay, so you know, the willie on the day when he father gives away his daughter EComm dually. Right. So Willie, that's protective help. Remember we said that's what Willie is. That's why the father is called the Lolita his daughter, what does he do? He protects her, he looks out for her, right. So the protective help and in this area here it also refers to aid belongs to it should be to the true Allah.
The word that is missing there should be the true Allah Lilla who will help
to Allah the true the one true Allah, He is better in giving compensation. Okay.
Why are we talking about aid and help and compensation students?
Why are we talking about that?
compensation as a dependency this person for their loss after they login? Good, good. And so exactly like what's the first thing that people will think about when they lose so much wealth?
So much, you know,
so much investment? Like, what's the first thing you start thinking about? Oh, my god, how am I gonna get this all back?
When a divorce happens, the first thing that Allah talks about after a divorce is three things.
Right? Allah talks about
telkwa. Allah then talks about risk. And then I'll talk about cool three things. And they're not random. They're not random. They're all in chronological, the first thing that is usually lost in a divorce is
the consciousness of Allah. That's why you get those, like emails going back and forth, both of them cursing each other out, and I'll see you in court.
Talk wise, less. So first thing after divorce is Allah starts talking about tough boy, then number two, especially when she's a single mother with four or five kids. And then he has to provide or pay child support. And it's like, the risk factor is huge. How am I gonna get money to survive? Maybe he was the provider for the last 30 years of their marriage. He's never had a job. I've never had a credit card nothing's he's like a god, how am I going to start all over now. So the risk is the second thing that both parties are thinking about. So Allah reminds you that
the risk comes from who Allah will take care of you. But Allah will only give you a risk. If you have what
was the first thing
to do can have no risk from ALLAH, if you don't have tequila. Now you have these two ingredients. You don't know where your risk is going to come from, but you're going to try. So the engine to keep use of fighting life and surviving. What does that engine called, it's number three.
Trust Allah will take care of me, man, I'll just trust I'm going to try I'm going to get a job. And the pages the child support, I'm going to provide for them. I'm going to see maybe, I don't know if somebody's gonna want to marry me. I'm 55 years old. I don't know who's gonna want me I got three kids. But I'm going to trust Allah knows best. I don't know why my marriage broke after 35 years. But I trust Allah knows. See that kind of language. They usually happens post divorce when the storm comes and everybody kind of goes their separate ways. It's incredible. So the fact that Allah is emphasizing and stressing that risk comes from Him, He will provide he will replace wealth comes
down pneus of comes from this person, this rich guy like the rich man he went through total destruction. Allah says I will replace you need aid right now. And nobody will give you that aid except me. So just rely on me. Okay. It's very beautiful that like I told you every time Allah talks about tragedy or pain, always the verses that follow that will always be verses of hope. So you see that again? Well, duty biller whom methyl hayati dunya Kemet in Enza now who Mina Sama, give them the example of the worldly life.
I love these these parables that are in the Quran, I love them. So we're going to see like beautiful imagery now.
Whenever you come across verses like this, like just highlight them and the kind of verses you you go back to once in a while just to remind you about life. Check this out. You're gonna have the example of worldly life. Okay? This is all about what our attitude of this world should be like.
It's like water that comes down from the sky. Okay.
Then the nutrients in the land, start mixing with their
fall Teletubby Hina Bert will adult so after they start mixing with each other
For us via Shimon the roof via then the entire land with its crops become defeated. In other words, what ends up happening take a look at Hashem the word it's the second point there so this water hits the ground starts to tear apart the ground because what does the water have to do now with the earth? It's got to do what does it have to build a nice large puddle above the Earth? Or does it have to do what it's got to penetrate to get where to feed the soil feed the nutrients to grow right for us to survive?
When you come across verses like this you know what you should think about the next time it rains? You think about this a the next time when you looking like your friend's yard, or you know anywhere in your backyard and you just see like these little puddles in your garden suck remember fossa Shimon tofu Huria like you got a yet you got now your garden is giving you a whole Tibet your you know, gardens that you planted with your veg, all of that starts becoming lectures and hopeless to you now. And the whole world starts talking to when it rains instead of it being like annoying and it's assistant, you know, I don't like this day, it's depressing. Now the rain becomes a whole
conference to you. So for us by Hashem and the ruler, yeah, what can Allahu Allah Quiddity che Mahkota Iran. So they became these defeated winds can carry them away. And Allah has always been in absolute control and all things you know what this is talking about? When rain falls, those raindrops? Do they take the same trajectory from this cloud all the way to there? Or does the wind also play a factor in it and you know how, like, you'll take shade over there, and the rings falling, but then all of a sudden, you get soaking wet under the shade.
can allow our equilibrium. Okay, that's the end of this video, is Allah is saying, here's how you internalize this. Allah is telling you, every raindrop that touched you had your name on it.
Right? Every range of the touched your car has your name on it. And
in suta, to note, it talks about
hail and snow. You know how sometimes when you're driving that, you know, the rare occasion that we get hail here can be pretty scary. You know, you try to find shelter or whatever is parked under a bridge or whatever. But you know how sometimes and this has happened to me, I'm sure while they may have happened to you know how sometimes when you're driving, and you're on the 401, or what have you, and then you see that stone.
Like it just it grew wings. And it has a flight path. And it just comes to pitched off a truck or something. And out of the millions of cars driving on that highway. It's your windshield that hits. Yeah, that happened to me once. And I remember driving and it cracked my windshield right in half. And I'm just like
no movement, no subpanel nothing came out on it just
and I see the crack just all the way to the bottom.
And then after about five minutes hamdulillah didn't shatter in my face.
What Yeah, I cried for a bit I think I'm not sure.
But um, then you just you kind of put things in perspective and you're like, you know that rock had your name on it. Allah sent it to this raindrop. These hail stone everything. And what does that do now for your Eman? Like on a rainy day or a storm or what have you. What does that do to your Eman? Now?
You know what you say when the when even the storm gets crazy and it like damages things? You know what you end up saying?
just signaled Hamdulillah I just spent hours planting all of this. But now all of a sudden the storm came and destroyed everything. Can I do Hamdulillah? I don't know maybe there might be a couple of bugs that infested there and laid some eggs and poison I don't know maybe something about oh Allah knows. Of hamdulillah that's what you start doing. You start taking the painful difficult moments and you start attaching Alhamdulillah to that when you do that you survive everything in this world. Right.
So verse number 40, full throttle, okay. Are we good?
I imagine well by noon Xena will hire to dunya
And children are the beauty of worldly life. We just finished talking about rain falling from the sky, going into the earth.
And to some extent it's out of control.
Why are we talking about money and children now?
Is there a connection?
Things we get attached to? So I was saying them that it has to do with
keep going, keep going.
Is your most cherished things people generally live in this world?
Okay, connect it to the previous a.
We're talking about money.
And children, sons and children
are the beauty of this world, the life Allah just finished telling us?
That for you to not get attached to this world, right, some of the lessons we learned from the previous story.
And Allah just told us and gave us a lesson about wealth and destruction, how quickly can be snatched away from you.
Now, Allah tells us that he provides from the sky all of your risk will come from him from the sky, whether it be rain, nutrition, the decor and come from the sky.
Gibreel either, he said,
comes from the last heavens. All right, the low Hillman the preserve tablet gets access to the Quran, and brings it to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. So this is like a parable that some of the alumni use that every time when rain is being talked about coming from the sky. You think about Allah's risk. And the greatest risk that ever came from the sky is what
is the Quran itself, right? That's the greatest risk ever given to us, which also comes from the sky. Then now Allah talks to us about money, wealth, and children. They are all Xena, the beauty of this world
when it rains, and it nourishes the earth.
So the the earth gets its water it gets its energy it gets its nutrients and all that it needs to prosper and flourish. Is it beautiful?
Yeah. Remember summertime when you plan those beautiful roses in your garden, and the rain comes, the days where you don't and even if it doesn't come What do you have to do? You have to provide that water for those for those plants just so you can appreciate the beauty, the effort. So Allah says that look the same way that I make this world a beautiful place for you.
Aside from the world, here is the most beautiful thing you have that makes this world even more beautiful. Here is the true Xena of the word students. Do you know what this word means? Xena. Xena is like a beautiful decoration. Okay, Xena is also the word to describe like a pretty face a beautiful face.
Okay, Xena. Linguistically also refers to the beauty of a woman but specifically her face like you never say oh my you know, mashallah your elbows look beautiful. You don't do that. The beauty of each other lies were lies in your face. Right? That's the beauty. So Allah says that the beauty of this and I'm sorry, those of you who don't have children, this is gonna probably sting a little bit, right.
But to those of us who have children, yeah, I know, aside from the times where they drive you crazy. You know, when you have like those really, really terrible days and you come home,
and your child just runs up to you and hugs you or smiles or, you know, made you a cup of tea or some just little little act of kindness. For the most part that takes a lot of your stress away. And you'll say like, again, especially when they're little.
You you would say things like, oh my god, I just had such a stressful day. I just want to just be home with my kids. I just want to sit with my kids and watch some TV. And I just want to play with my I just want to spend the day with my kids. We've all all of us who have children have gone through that. And maybe some of you are going through that with little kids right now. I'm going through that right now. My kids are still tiny, I mean, not tiny, but they're still very young. So they're still really attached. And I could be having the most awful day till I see my kids and then a lot of that goes away. So when Allah says a man who will by noon, Xena it will hide like this. You
have to be apparent to really appreciate what this A is talking about. They are really truly the beauty of this world. That's one way on a personal level. That's one way to interpret the A. There's a second way the scholars they say they say that all children and money in general is the Xena of the world.
Palestine situation is really, really critical, not just because of, you know, historically and politically what's happened,
but who has been suffering, you know, in these last few weeks the most.
Has that brought up, at least for the most part, right? Has that brought out, like pain and compassion from human beings across the world? I know in the midst of all of that, there are just people you don't know what they are, if they're human, or what because they just don't feel anything I get that. But the majority of people, when you hear that a child goes through pain and suffering, what happens to your heart, they don't have to be yours.
They just have to be children. Right?
That is not by accident. That's how Allah designed our fitrah as human beings that we are naturally compassionate to children. That's why the Prophet Allah salat wa salam said, you all know this hadith, Malaya, Camilla, from whoever, whoever doesn't show mercy does not receive mercy. That Hadith happened, because of a man who had 10 children.
And he saw the Prophet alayhi salatu salam pick up a child and kiss the child on its forehead. And like, rub the child on its head and show love and mercy. It wasn't even his kid, right? His children are playing, picked up and gave him a kiss on the top. This betterman wanted to show that he was like a tough guy, this man. So he's like,
Yeah, I also love Allah, like, I have 10 children, I've never kissed them, show that kind of compassion the way he wanted to show like, this is what makes a tough guy. You don't see your kids crying, you're like, come on. It's this attitude. Man up.
As opposed to Are you okay? Come here, sit on my lap. Tell me Tell daddy, what happened, that kind of thing. So the Prophet has said, and looks at this man and says, If you don't show mercy, you'll never get it. And it was a generic phrase, a statement for all of mankind. And it happened because of children. So this idea here of they are the beauty of the world. It's just the fitrah that how Allah created human beings. And of course, I don't have to talk to you about money.
We all know that what money is what it does. If you don't control this, it could be the biggest curse of this world. Or if you can, and you make it and you make a lot of it, and you do well with it, but you do the right things with it. It becomes the greatest blessing. Wealthy people know, who are honest with their money, and know what to do with it. They know what a blessing it is to help people. And what is the number one responsibility when you are gifted with wealth? What is the number one most important responsibility that you must have when you are gifted with wealth? Yeah, sadaqa.
Okay, because why you? It's a simple question, like, the way Why do I have to share this money? Why do you?
Why do you get all of it? Why do you get $10 billion for what?
You don't need that, but you made it, congratulations. We know now as people of you men, you didn't make that money. Allah gave that to you, man. Because there's somebody else beside you that started the same business, but there's just didn't flourish the way your yours did. And you can talk about marketing and advertising, blah, blah, blah, all you want. But at the end of the day, the results were never in your control, the planning was, to an extent the results, you couldn't guarantee that just as much as the person beside you that quote unquote, failed their business. So we just saw examples of all of this in the previous story, right?
So the number one responsibility is that you use the extra earnings and you give it back to mankind in a way that is considered or counted or sada. Okay, what about tier two? Solly had to hire owner Endora because however, we're hiring him MLS
okay. The remaining things are the righteous deeds. Look what Allah said, Children money, all of that good stuff is beautiful. It's important. But what is the lesson well about the Apple solid, that
the remaining things of righteous deeds are better meaning they're going to they're going to last? So in other words, when we say the remaining of your righteous deeds, meaning that all of this is one thing, it's great, it's beautiful. But you see this your righteousness, those are the things that truly last right in terms of compensation and hope and having a better future Hydra and Endora because 11 While you're on MLS
MLS is is the word for hope, MLS and MLS.
Okay, any questions on them before we go on?
Children any age. So the word that is used here is
So by noon here can also look what I wrote there for you guys as well
by noon here is when the father looks at his children and says, These are mine.
That kind of pride honor, that's like the manpower we're talking about here. Like he feels proud that he did what he could to provide and raise these kids. And it's a term to kind of reflect from for the women, they are immediately given that reward and honor because of just my birthright, just being able to birth those children. They're honored in their own way. But the man has to earn that he has to earn that through his discipline through his Taqwa through his leadership, through all of the things that he provides any lead, and he teaches those children. So when a father is able to contribute in raising his child, that he's able to teach certain values, whether it be religious or
just in worldly life, and so on. And he's proud of that, and he's proud to see the fruits of his efforts in his children. That's also called Benjamin in the Koran. Okay, so it's used for sons, and it's also used for the pride that a father shares in raising those sons, okay.
So a man who will by noon, Xena will hire to dunya Wolbachia to solid hydrocodone or Endora. Because 11 of Ayran Emelia were young men who say UdG Bell, what are all the berries?
We were just talking about how beautiful the world is.
And the things in this world that is beautiful. Money, children, family, all of that. Take a look at the next verse.
There will be a day.
What day are we talking about here?
Day of Judgment.
Day of Judgment is called a day. One of its names, it's called yo, okay, a day?
And how long is that day?
How long is it a 24 hour day? How long is the Day of Judgment
is equivalent to how many days
50,000 years, and one day?
It's all like it has several names, right? But the only one here. It's it's capturing the entire day, which is equivalent to 50,000 years, okay. That's how the Day of Judgment will feel. Which immediately teaches us what the concept of day or time in the athletic is not the same as this world.
So don't ever for a moment think when you hear that, for example, the word Sarah, sad in modern day language is referred to an hour Sarah. But when you're talking about in classical Arabic, and when it's referring to the Day of Judgment, it's not talking about an hour, it's talking about a moment. And that moment could extend for several years and years and years. Or it could be a moment that it's yours, but it feels like it just came in left. That's all encompassing, that all encompasses sir. So the Day of Judgment is also called the day or or Sara the hour, because it'll happen. It'll be equivalent to 50,000 years. But it also be like a quick moment, it'll just come and go. Because
this whole concept of how time works in the ACA, we'll never know until we're there. Okay, we'll never know until we're there.
Prophets earliest thought was salam told us that the people in their graves waiting for the day of judgment, they will wait from the time of Adam until the last person dies right in their grave. But think about this, it will feel like equivalent to the the amount of time of one prayer to another.
Like the heart awesome. So the person who died
10,000 years ago will feel the grave life from one Soller to another. It'll be the Day of Judgment. So I told you again, why am I throwing this all day? So you see the concept of time, we will not understand it in the AF era. So all of our loved ones that have passed away a while ago. They will experience that grave life not Monday.
Tuesday, Wednesday are 24 hours a day and they're No, that's us in the world, the life, the bizarre grave life is not like that. They will experience it just like a brief moment. Here, you want to hear a quick theory what I think this is, Allah knows best. This is just me, reading, reflecting, talking to scholars over the years,
you ever noticed that some of your dreams are like that,
you'll dream your whole life. And you've gone to bed, what, six, seven hours, but you jumped your whole life from the time you were born until your death or until you became old or something like that.
Allah knows best. But I personally think that that is a glimpse of the athlete, the way the athlete will feel to an extent
that you'll feel this athlete alive. And then you'd have sometimes you will, you will dream your loved ones that you're talking to them. But it's not like you're sitting in a room talking to them, it's very quick, but I don't know how to describe it, but it's very meaningful. So it can be like a quick second.
But the in that quick second, you have talked for maybe 10 years with them. And it's very quick and brief, and then they're gone. And then you wake up.
It's almost like a kind of gives us a glimpse of what afterlife would look like or feel like what Allah knows best. Because when I read these verses, and these Hadith and I try to connect that to things that we really don't have control over like dreams, like prophecies, I'm told us like these dreams are all from Allah, right? At the end of the day, the concept of time is totally different in a dream, the way that we move, the way that we walk, sometimes you might see yourself flying in the sky and doing all sorts of thing, like things that never are, for the most part realistic in this world. They are very real and alive in those dreams. And Allah knows best if that is a glimpse to
the afterlife or not right.
has pulled out. Yeah, and this is what I mean, the fact that your soul is pulled out of your body every night, so you're technically dead.
It's like, okay, if I'm technically dead, then whatever I see or experience is probably like an alcohol to some extent cardio like the grave like to some extent, right? Well, yo men who say urology Bell Ouattara out of the bed is a day in which you will see that Allah will make the mountain sail away. And you're going to see the Earth and what it's being hiding. And we're going to hear them not heard them, but it should be hear them.
And we're going to hear them the humans and we're not going to spare any of them. Okay, so what's happening here, take a look at your notes.
So this is Allah subhanho wa Taala one of the verses that how you should not have too much hope, meaning you should not have too much attachment to this world, everything will expire, say
this word Yeoman newsa yet,
see you it will feel odd walk casually. So we're going to see these mountains will slowly and casually disappear.
Know what total out of the baddies, you're going to see the Earth. Bad is and what it's been hiding. So bad is is
says here from Barossa face to face, meaning all of the secrets of this world that we will never know about will all be exposed on this day.
I don't know if you're familiar with like the I kind of like to see it this way. And those of you who know, you know, it's like the area 50 ones of the world. Does that make sense? So these top secret locations where the world will not have access to or not know anything about on this day alone will expose all of that. Things that you know suddenly disappear. Another example is like all of the indigenous that were buried and disappeared and died and nobody could find their graves and nobody knew where all of that the earth will now expose a level shift the mountains away caused them to turn into dust and all of this will be exposed.
There is Does everybody know what the word for a grave is an Arabic What do we call it?
cupboard right? There's another word in the pour en su that ye seen that Allah tells us Yahoo Jonah Amina Ajay deathy Ajit death. Judith is another word for grave. What's the difference between the two? hot butter? You can see the grave it's right there.
As your death or Judith are hidden graves
could be living or sitting, walking on top of one you don't know.
So Allah says both of these graves will be exposed. So bad is a is shifting the land and exposing whatever the land is hiding and not just bodies. But anything else, okay, the treasures, the secrets, all of it will be exposed, will have shelter now whom then Allah says, and we're going to herd them
hash out is like, you know, when the farmer kind of hurts all of the animals together towards one entrance, you will see those videos of him hurting all the sheeps and goats get through one entrance and they all sort of crowd that's called hotshot. Allah says that on the Day of Judgment, the criminals will be Yashoda and they'll be gathered this way. They'll be herded together. Right like animals right? Well hash out are now home. So whatever Allah is talking about that will be exposed here, Allah use this word. So what does that tell you? What is the type of exposure that Allah is talking about?
Like don't ever don't see
the good of it or the bad?
Yeah, but, but the fact that Allah used that he will herd them like animals
it's going to be the bad of them, the criminals the injustices. It's not going to be the believers that Allah is exposing here, it's not going to be the highest and the good. None enough by pardoning
all of that, all of the tyrants and dictators who hid all of their crimes, you know, suddenly half their population disappeared suddenly the wealth or the resources of their country, they was just not available Lord rotted away or to disappeared. So it brought all of their civilization and their people into turmoil. They went into poverty, they couldn't survive and and the list is endless. Sound familiar?
That's the world we live in today. Right? felon no ha dear men whom I had Allah said we're not going to spare any of them so every single thing will eventually come and be exposed justice does prevail. What Rule Do I allow because Safa Locata G to Munna Kumar Hi Lachlan outcome oh well Amara.
You will be brought before your master rows upon rows.
rows upon rows.
What does that about?
Software look at to Munna Kumar, hi Lacanau come Oh, well, Amara. So they have judgment is also called yomo Piano. Piano means the day of standing, which means that nobody will be sitting on the day of June every single human being will stand.
The other way that we are organized in front of Allah on the Day of Judgment is soften. You know how the meme says Salas sofa calm. So we'll sofa console means to like, like, organize yourself as though you were all stitched together. So like really straight? You know, don't have one foot sticking out this way one heel is out? No, no. Get yourself together like as if we stitched you all together. And so forth is the plural for soften which means an organized line. Okay, so we will be standing in front of Allah, in lines. Do you understand now why Salah is like a rehearsal of the Day of Judgment.
You understand? Because Allah tells us on the Day of Judgment, you'll stand up the same way. So that tells us what are you supposed to be thinking about? And feeling when you pray every single time you're supposed to be thinking about and feeling like it's well.
It's like a mini Day of Judgment. Jumar you're supposed to feel that even more. Juma is like our weekly rehearsal for the Day of Judgment. That's why it's called the Hellmuth Juma
Day of Judgment is called yo Gemma. It's the same word a day of gathering.
Like it's everything that we do five times a day, we're supposed to be thinking at least bare minimum about a day of judgment.
Right look at the Jeep to Munna camera holla canal Come on. Well, Amara. So you will have to come so you'll be rows upon rows. And you have come to us the way we have created you the first time around. So in other words, you will be back in your original
fit through a pure form. Okay, so the little things that you think like the scars won't be there the tattoos will all disappear and a sort of like reconstruction of the body that that it was put through when it was all of that goes away you come back in your pure original form like how you were born. Okay
quick question How old are you when you're standing in front of Alana Day of Judgment? Like is there a particular age or like
day of judgment
So gender we're all pretty much the same age around the early 30s Okay, but what about the day of judgment?
Really helps them to wipe away some of those tears just to know that Hamdulillah you know they're in a good place. Right? Yep.
You will be in the center Prophet alayhi salatu salam described that he saw this man as tall as as high as the eyes can see as far as the eyes can see. And all of these young children gathered around as far as the eyes can see.
And you describe to the companions that these children were all children who died when they were children meaning pre puberty these were all the children who died in that state they all were gathered around the Prophet Ibrahim Ali salaam so it was a time in a station of honor. They were safe they were happy they were reassured based on the law they will also be reunited with their families as well. Okay let's one more area and then
pause inshallah William and those Okay, for them to hard determine whom I had already Doris
Bell exam to Allah Nigel adelakun Merida, however, you were in very confident assumption that we were not going to appoint any sort of me, oh, my goodness, see the ending of this area. This is so real in this day and age. It's the poor man's way of saying you really thought this day wasn't going to happen? Did you?
The criminals this area is really speaking to them. That the very end you thought that this was this meeting would not happen. You thought that the day of judgment and all of us gathering together with some sort of fairy tale.
Students tell me really quickly before we take this less a how do you know the Day of Judgment will happen just logically don't have to prove a or like just logically common sense. Can you tell me that the Day of Judgment will happen? Or there has to be a young pm what's one logical way to to prove that? Yes
Yeah, definitely that's one video here that justice.
Right? Somebody takes the life of somebody else that's it. They just die away. Everybody suffers. They suffer there but their life has just gone in vain. That's the end of it. And possible.
It just can't be because why?
Germany in this world is to live a just life and to be treated in a just way. So when that's taken away from us, that's not just the consequence will Too bad for you, you just have to deal with it
can't be like that there has to be some accountability somewhere, some point. So when reason for the Day of Judgment, anything else, that you just logically make sense that a day of judgment has to happen, like it just has to happen.
Even just the flip side of that, the good things
pardon me, like life after death, not even like, just the good things that we do in this world. It's been good karma or bad karma, little warning, well, more along the lines of like, we all do good.
Not everybody sees it. Not everybody knows. And, like, I can be doing a ton of good things that you'll never know about. And you all are doing tons of great things. When you're alone or in private or just somewhere in the world, you did something that whether it was for you or somebody else, and they never knew it was you. So for example, your donation
you you know, at the end of the day, when you donate call us you're not concerned about where it goes after that, and Hamdulillah you, you submit that to Allah and Allah take the rest.
Well, you know, when you sponsor that orphan, or you donate it that you know, relief package to that child that you never see or know and they find some relief because of your effort.
That counts for something like Allah says, He will reward you for every single act of kindness you have done you will see the reward. Remember, we mentioned earlier on in one of our sessions, that your scale is brought to you more doddle and you're going to look at your scale of good deeds and be like oh my god every sadaqa I gave is here on the scale My goodness every salaam I gave is on the scale every Eid Mubarak a wished actually counted and and it's just gonna go on like that. Like you're there's no such thing as a wasted act of hire, but also any wasted act of injustice right? So is it just logically it has to happen because why the world just cannot be that unfair. And then you
just die and go away right anyhow last A and then we'll we'll pause inshallah
all the Al Kitab fatale mucho de minimis should be attained and the book will be put down and you will see the criminals what book students
the book of what? Deeds right. So what will their IP tab so this book of deeds will be put down? That total imagery and you will see the criminals majorem the criminals, march 15. March 15 is when somebody is so take Oh, I actually wrote it here. Shafique captures the day when light and darkness are combined. So they're going to see on that day all the criminals they're going to see the hell and they're going to see the Jana as well. So they're going to see this place of intense pain and fear and they're going to see this place of intense hope and joy Ryan Murphy he way up who loon and terrified at the same time, but then they will say what's in it? Yeah, way let Hannah Molly huddle.
keytab. So what's in it, they're talking about what the book. So when they see this book,
and they will ask in fear, what's in it? So some of the scholars say that when somebody is terrified and anticipating what is in their book of deeds, it's the first sign that their book of deeds
the bad deeds are going to outweigh the good
because of the fear. Okay.
And so they already know Oh, I'm gonna get caught here.
I'm gonna get exposed all those innocent people's lives I tortured and I took oh my goodness, it's here now. And they will be saying what terrible destruction has fallen upon this. Yeah, well, Maddie had the law you hold yourself hirato Allah Kabira 10 Illa or saw her. You know, it's really saying there's not a single, miniscule or large anything on this day that's missing us. Everything is coming back. This book is not going to exempt the most miniscule things. Even all of the letters of pain that I've uttered or a texted or a posted all of that shows up while at Kabira or even the grand and the large things that I've said or done in LA saw her you know what I saw her is I saw her
is when you have a necklace with a bunch of beads and you count like that.
To speak Subhan Allah. So you're counting one by one that's called our saw her. So they're like, except that every single word and sentence got accounted for. Well, what do I do? Well, now I need to caldera.
And they found whatever they had done standing right in front of them how they're all
right there in front of their face.
Well, hopefully more of Buka ahead and your Master is not going to be doing wrong to any of them. In other words, nobody's going to be accused wrongfully, justice will prevail.
And so this is the area where the story now officially ends. This second story of the men with the two gardens officially ends here. So all of this, although it's not directly talking about these two men, it's all linked from the story itself.
While a lovely Maura Booker had all of these yet or benefits that came out of that story, so really shows you that Subhanallah
why stories are so important in the Quran, and why they are mentioned to begin with, it's not storytime every time you come across when in the Quran. These are life lessons for all of us, not only in this world, but for all of us to keep in mind of the era and what is to come. Okay, so we pray that Allah subhanaw taala give us what is best in this world and in the era. And I pray that Allah accepts our do eyes and accepts our efforts that insha Allah when our books are given to us not only are they given to us in our right time, but I pray that Allah subhanaw taala when he gives us these books, we are happy and we are confident, poised and anxious to see what we have done and
to reap the rewards in sha Allah okay, I mean Subhanak Aloha Mohammed decrescendo Allah Allah He learned to stop Fedorko were to be like, and inshallah next week was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Students any questions
