Well I

00:00:10 --> 00:00:11

mean how

00:00:15 --> 00:00:19

many mean no mostly me.

00:00:22 --> 00:00:56

Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah him Hamid was early he also hobby of mine and my rod is all we continue with it of Sierra Soto for on we are at number 27 And Allah subhanho wa taala. Before this, Allah was talking about the situation and the affairs of the people on the Day of Judgment, there are those who are going to be going to jahannam We ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us. On the other hand, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala talks about those people who will be in Jannah and those who will be in Jannah. They will not have anything to worry about a half an hour they him well, um, yes, they

00:00:56 --> 00:01:26

don't they have nothing to worry about. There is no anxiety, there's nothing to worry about. There's no commitments, there's no responsibilities, and they're going to be constantly in a state of rest. And Allah subhanho wa Taala continues by talking about the situation on the Day of Judgment. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we only have a volume or Isla de here, late and it's the Khartoum our Saudi Sabina Yeah, way later Later, Neelam Fula and and harira, la caja abalone and evictory by the by the if journey.

00:01:27 --> 00:02:05

What kind of shape Arnold in sunny hadoo LA. So this is number 2728 and 29. Now, what is the correlation between these few ideas and what has happened before Allah subhanaw taala is telling us in some of the previous ayat, that what will be the situation of these people who do not believe in Allah on the Day of Judgment. Sometimes they're going to try to resort to their false deities, the false deities will show no kind of affiliation, then there, they're going to start to look for the angels. The angels are going to say that Bushra Yama even little Majidi mean there is no glad hiding for these kinds of people. Then they're going to say, Oh Allah, we did a bunch of or we did so many

00:02:05 --> 00:02:45

good Armada. We did so many good services, we provided so much good we helped we and we did so much. Allah subhana wa Tada says, For Jana who have a mantra, everything good that you did, it is of no good use. Now, at that time, of course, when Allah says when we're talking about people on the Day of Judgment, who are not going to be in a good situation, perhaps are heading towards a fire Jahannam now in this kind of situation, when they have exhausted all options to protect themselves, then the next next, the next best thing that a person does is they begin to play the blame game. And at that situation, Allah subhanaw taala says that the law Liam, will Yo Ma Laval volume Allah de

00:02:45 --> 00:03:20

that the volume will be chewing on their hand, not one hand, but both hands. Now let's first of all, let's try to imagine the scenery, seeing a person that they're actually chewing on their hand, not just you know, when you see some people biting on their nails, that's one thing. But when you see a person, they're biting on their nails, they're like really lost in their own thoughts, you know, that they might be going through something, you know, they're they're really thinking about something very deep. We're talking about someone who's like lost in their mind, and they're chewing on their hand and any sane person will not be doing something like this meaning that they are such

00:03:20 --> 00:04:05

an in such a deep state of trouble, that they have no idea what to do, but in that situation they're biting their hand out of anxiety and out of fear and then at that time, they will say yeah, late and it the whole to mar Rasul Sabetha I wish I had not taken the way of this such and such person what yeah way that that Lita? Nina holida first of all, there's a yeah Nathan it the hug tomorrow. So Lisa, I wish I take in the way of the Prophet Yahweh letter late and in his run harira I wish I had never taken the path of so and so person. So there are many explanations of this idea. And all of these ayat I will say however, one thing that we have to understand is that first of all, you the

00:04:05 --> 00:04:41

word y'all do you the word you're out do is a sin is the same word that has been used in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu it was something where he says on a community was soon little hola firewall she didn't matter the year I'll do all they have been awarded. The Prophet saw some says the hold on to my sunnah in the Sunnah of the holy fire Rashi dean. And then he says, Do Allah like hold on to it very firmly. So when you hear this kind of word that there, you know, hold on to something with your teeth very firmly, then this gives you the idea that when these people are going to be chewing on their hand, is this not going to be a very subtle chew? It's going to be a very

00:04:41 --> 00:05:00

deep chew on their hand. Meaning that imagine hurting your own self, but you have no idea that you're hurting yourself. And that's exactly the situation of these kinds of people on the Day of Judgment. They're biting their hand and imagine leaving marks deep marks into your flesh, and they have no idea and they're still like in their own state.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:40

of mine in their thoughts. And at that time, they will say they will pray and they would wish that I wish that I had followed the path of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah says yeah, late and he the reason why he says yeah, late honey is because yeah later or the were later means in Arabic, that's something you wish for, but it will never come into existence. So what is the story behind this and what is the the reason or revelation, many of the organizers say that this, this is in reference to a person who existed in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his name was about a bit more used. Now he was a person who would have come time on time, he had a

00:05:40 --> 00:06:15

certain level of respect of the Prophet Salam in his heart. So one day he came to the province of Salem to invite him for a food invitation. Now, of course, you all know that the Prophet SAW Allah or some he was always eager that these people will convert to Islam. So he tells me, he says to Akbar, Ibrahim Wyatt, that I will convert, I will come, I will come and I will accept your invitation only on the condition that you take the shahada and you believe in Allah subhanho wa taala. So he says, Okay, fair enough. So he says, I should do Allah, Allah had a law, why should the Muhammad Rasool Allah, the Prophet saw some, he's happy, he says, I will come to your invitation.

00:06:15 --> 00:06:52

And he comes. Now over there you have one of the strangest enemies of Islam, where you have been Harloff. And we're going to have is basically saying that he tells over the morning that the Prophet saw some is here, did you invite him? And he says, Yeah, I invited him and he told me to and then he said that I heard you took the Shahada. Did you become a Muslim? And he says, Yeah, I became a Muslim by I just said it. And so he began to taunt him that Why do you take the Shahada? Like, are you not firm in the religion of your forefathers? Do you doubt their religion, he began to taunt him. So he says, Listen, I only just said it. Just because Apolo Salam, he made that condition I not

00:06:52 --> 00:07:30

want to feel embarrassed, I really want to him to come. So that's why I just said it. So but even Hello says, that I will not accept this reason and I will not connect with you and I will not talk to you till you go to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you denounce your your deen you denounce Islam, and you spit on us Allah Allah Azza wa sallam, I mean, think about this level of disrespect. They were willing to show to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he goes and because he was looking for their approval, he goes all the way to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he denounces Islam and he has spat on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, you

00:07:30 --> 00:08:10

have to understand that this is of course, Allah subhanaw taala is watching this, when you disrespect the Polish some in this particular way, then this is something that will not be accepted by Allah subhanho wa taala. So on the Day of Judgment, on the Day of Judgment, these people who did not follow the path of the Prophet SAW Salem and they follow the path of their friends, and these friends deviated them, Allah subhanaw taala, saying that as a result, they will be chewing on their hands out of regret and out of remorse and remorse to such an extent that Allah subhanho wa Taala says that Yahweh Leta late and Elam, Fula and and Hala, now think about this. He's not even saying

00:08:10 --> 00:08:51

that I am not going to I wish I not taking the path. Oh, man, that's not what he's saying over here. He's saying that I wish I not taking the path of another person. Why do you say another person over here is because that he is so disgusted. This person the volume is so disgusted by their friend, that they don't even want to take their name on the Day of Judgment. They didn't even want to see them on the Day of Judgment, let I mean, and they don't even want to take their name. So, this is why they have shown such level of disgust on the day of judgment and then these people will say Nakada Avallone on a victory by the if journey. I was on the right path. But it was he mean that

00:08:51 --> 00:09:36

this person mentioned in the in it number 28. The person who deviated the friend who was a bad influence is he who truly made me a stray from the reminder on a victory. Victory here means the true Dean or Islam and a victory by the if journey after he had come to me or after he had reached me. What can I shake on and shake on is insane. He has always been cadoola a betrayer for humanity a great betrayer or always betrayed humanity. So Allah subhanho wa Taala here he's talking about that how there were some people in Makkah that they did have some glimmer of hope in their heart. They had some good in their heart, but because they were looking for the approval some other people that

00:09:36 --> 00:09:59

were willing to go to the extent of showing this are dishonouring the province on them and showing disrespect to the Prophet sallallahu it was sent him and Allah subhanaw taala is telling us that this is something that is not they will not be tolerated. And so the key lesson that we learn from all this is from these three ayat is that when it comes to making friends, when it comes to choosing friends, we have to be

00:10:00 --> 00:10:34

very careful and who we choose as our friends. We want to keep friendship with those people who love us not for what we have, for what who we are. A lot of times friendships are based on what they have. This is called an insincere friendship. They may seem like they're friends with you, but they're only friends with what you have. Or you're gonna have some of those kinds of people that whenever they need a favor, they will always come to you. But the minute you ask them for one favor, or you need some help, and you you go to them, they're not willing to help you. And then they will try to come back and they'll try to sweet talk and so forth. Remember that we try to find friends

00:10:34 --> 00:11:12

who will help us and we help them to friendships should be based on a Class A class means that we do that only known for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala I'm being I'm building our friendship with this person, not because I want something from him, or so that he can help me out in the time when I need a favor from him, but rather it's built on La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah and this is why inshallah I will finish on this, sharing with you a beautiful Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet alayhi salam says the example of a good companion and a bad companion is like that of a seller of musk, and the one who blows the blacksmith Swellow.

00:11:13 --> 00:11:55

Blacksmith, blacksmith bellows. And so he then says, so as for the seller of musk, then either he will grant you some means that he will give you some musk, or you buy some from him. Or at least if there is no transaction involved between the two of you, at least you will enjoy a pleasant smell from him mean that you will benefit from this from this person in a certain or at least you'll benefit in any capacity. On the other hand, as for the one who blows the blacksmith's bellows, then either he will burn your clothes, or you will get an offensive smell from him. And this has mentioned this is perfectly now in the commentary of this hadith email. No, we're talking with Allah

00:11:55 --> 00:12:37

Allah. He says that, of course, the Prophet of Islam is drawing a comparison here between a good friend and a bad friend. And he says the good friend, he compares that to a seller of musk and spoke of the virtue of having companions who are good, who have noble manners, who have piety who have knowledge. And not only that, but they have a good way of dealing with certain situations that go on in their life, they have a good way of dealing with trials and tribulations or challenges that come in their life. On the other hand, you have a person that has provided you some give the example of the one who has or who blows the blacksmith's bellows, meaning that in this situation, either when

00:12:37 --> 00:13:15

you have a bad friend, either you're going to learn from their bad habits, or their have bad habits are gonna wear off on you. But there is no point in this relationship or this friendship, where you come out on top, or you benefit from them. Now, it's very important also to understand that many times we feel like that I want to become friends with someone, perhaps I can change them, perhaps I can have an influence on them. That is absolutely valid. But it's very important also to for a person to remember that this could also be a trapper shaytaan. See, Shavon knows that when it comes to these two people, one who is pious or who has piety in their life, versus the person who does not

00:13:15 --> 00:13:52

have piety in their life, perhaps the person who does not have piety, they are they have this ability to influence other people, they just have this natural ability to do that. On the other hand, this person who may have piety, they are easily influenced. So a person socially thought comes to this person says that you know, much like you have so much piety, your friend does not have enough piety, perhaps you can be frank become friends with them, and you can wear off on them. But deep down chiffon understands that when he brings these two people together, it's going to be the person who is more of the influencer, who's going to have a higher influence or a more important

00:13:52 --> 00:14:27

influence on the person who has piety and hence the person who has piety, he will lose his piety in that course or in you know, in that relationship. So this is why it's very important that even in a situation like this, we have to always keep a really close eye on our spirituality when it comes to friendship, choosing the right friends, I'm not saying that you don't make Salam imagine you know someone, a friend of yours, who is far from being it does not mean that you don't make slam to them. That's wrong. The problem never did that. He never taught us that. It doesn't mean that you go and you show your arrogance to them. He doesn't mean that you go and you show that you are better than

00:14:27 --> 00:15:00

them and you are superior than them because at the end of the day, we have no idea who's more superior in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala that person can truly be more superior than us in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala but we treat them with honor with dignity with respect, but at the same time, we show that we want to bring this person close to Allah subhanho wa Taala I love this person, but I may disagree with their certain non religious lifestyle. So this is what we need to this is the kind of rock and carry

00:15:00 --> 00:15:34

Do we need to exhibit when it comes to our friends perhaps who are who might be far from being, always be there for them always make salam to them always share something good with them. Do not always try to taunt them because they are not religious. That is not what our deen has taught. So inshallah we'll finish on this the most important thing I will once again stress upon is that when it comes to friendship, finding those people who truly care for us, when it comes to our true friend, they will you don't need to give them excuses so that they can be your friend they will find excuses to be your friend. That's what does what you call a true friend. So ask Allah subhanaw taala

00:15:34 --> 00:15:50

to surround us with people who really care for us who are true friends of ours, and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for protection from those people who may seem like they are friends but deep down inside they're only are selfish immunoblot me is akmola Hey, Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
