da da da da da da da da da da da da shikata was shadow Anna Mohammed Abdullah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira Ahmed, my dear brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
So we're going to be continuing with our tafsir class to be the light Tada. Today, we're going to be doing that the fear of solitude in theater. And what we're doing is if you'll notice that the themes inside sort of cops are in facade, and so at the queer, they're actually very, very similar. So the Friday before last we did sort of in Chicago, today we're doing in facade, and on Wednesday within the heat, it will do the query. And then we'll come back to Serato 15. Next Friday, within lightoller sudomotor. 15 is a longer sutra, and it deals with people who deal with heroin money, so actually have a couple of videos that I want to share with you, and it's going to be a longer halaqa
than usual. So I thought we delayed till that time in the night either. So tonight, we're going to be doing sudo in Fedora. So Allah subhana wa Tada. He starts off
by saying in the summer on photons, so either as we mentioned is when so Allah subhanaw taala is starting off the suta by telling us that for certainty this event is going to happen. And what is the event that Allah subhanaw taala is referring to a seminar on photons, that the sky will in furtherance. Now if you notice the previous show that we did, Allah subhanaw taala started off the show by saying, either some mountain shortcut, and shortcut we mentioned is to tear and rip something apart. Whereas in this sutra, when Allah subhana wa Tada, he starts off by saying in photos, and in photo that it comes from fitter. So you'll notice that in Ramadan, when you're having
your if you're breaking your fast, when in actuality, what's happening is your rupturing your fast that from itself, it's breaking from the inside. So this is something important to look at. How does your fast break from the inside? Who can tell me when the person is fasting? Why is it called a thought rupturing from the inside or breaking from the inside? Who can tell me that?
Excellent. So what breaks your fast is not actually the food that you're eating, but it is your intention to break that fast. And that is why it is called forethought, which comes rupturing from the inside. And this is what I know what the other thing about the skies, that the skies will not be just torn apart, but they will be ruptured from the inside. So one second, you'll be completely whole, and then all of a sudden from wisdom itself, it will start rupturing and it will start breaking down. So as you can see the trend that Allah subhanaw taala starting off with the beginning of the surah is what are the indications that Allah subhanaw taala is going to show us that the Day
of Judgment is going to begin. And when these indications start to take place, it will be too late to perform Toba at that time, it will be too late to turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala at that time, because when the sequence starts, it starts rolling very, very quickly. The second thing Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions here is what even kawakubo into Taurus, and when the stars start falling from the skies, scattered. Now, this is a scary thought. SubhanAllah that when you look inside, when you look at the sky at nighttime, you will see millions of stores. And here Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that the score that the stores will start falling from the skies, you'll see like one
shooting star after another, and the score, the sky will just be filled up with these stars that are falling down. Now not only are the stars falling down, but they're losing their light as well as mentioned sort of queer unless I know Donna mentioned that the stars are going to be losing their light altogether. So this beautiful creation that Allah subhanaw taala had created, now all of a sudden has lost its beauty, and it's going to start falling down on to the earth. And Allah subhanaw taala goes on to say what will be held for Gillette and when the seas shall burst forth. So generally when you look at the ocean, generally speaking, it is very calm. It may have some waves in
it. But there's no major typhoon that's taking place in it. There's no major explosions inside of the oceans. But here unless I know what that is telling us that when the day of judgment comes, even the oceans will start exploding. And this is something to ponder and to contemplate that as you look at the way the world is going right now.
you're noticing more typhoons are happening more than ever, that even today or this weekend, as you're looking at it, does anyone know where the typhoon is taking place, it's going up to 1000 kilometers per hour, the winds, the Philippines in that region, that whole area, it's covering a distance of, you know, 1000 kilometers over the weekend, and the water is just going to be, you know, drowning the people. And here unless I know the other thing, that that is from the signs of the Day of Judgment, that when the Day of Judgment occurs, water will be exploding onto the land, and it will be drowning people. And I had a really strange experience. I'm directly related to this.
When I was studying at Islamic University of Medina, we actually used to have ping pong tournaments. And there was this one brother Abdul Majeed. He was the ping pong champion of the university. So 7000 students, you have this one skinny African looking brother, Mashallah, who was the ping pong champion, and he was from a country called seashells.
And if you look up seashells is a very beautiful island, sort of like the Maldives, sort of like Mauritius very beautiful area, Mashallah. But something very interesting about it, that by the year 2020, the whole island of seashells will be completely underwater, that everyone that is on that island, and I think it had a population of something like 50,000 or 60,000 people, they will have to move off the island, because that water will overcome the island itself. So again, this is what I was referring to that as the Day of Judgment approaches. And on the day, gentlemen, judgment itself, the water will be overflowing onto the lens because the water will be exploding. And unless I know
Tyler continues, we're evil kobudo boxty a lot. And when the graves within of themselves are turned upside down. So you'll notice that when a person is buried, we actually dig the grave. And when you dig the grave, the Islamic grave is not dug like these non Islamic grave. Does anyone know what the difference is? Who knows the difference between a Muslim grave and a non Muslim get Go ahead.
accent this in the Arabic language is known as a land. And what that means is that when you dig the grave, you dig it in an L format, you dig it in L format. So it's not just one big massive rectangle like the disbelievers will have. But the Muslim grave the Sunnah of the Prophet Salaam was to dig what they call a legend and a legend is that you will dig in L right so you dig down a little bit and then you have an L shape at the bottom. So the grave is dug like an L. Now here unless I know what Dan is saying that these l shapes will be turned upside down that Allah subhanho wa Taala literally will have these graves lifted up and turned over. So everything that is inside the ground,
Allah subhanaw taala will expel onto the ground to the earth or onto the surface itself. So anything that was hidden inside of the earth, Allah subhanaw taala is now expelling on top of the ground. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala is giving all of these warnings for several reasons. The first reason I already mentioned, because the first reason is that when this starts to happen one sequence after another, it's too late to perform Toba at that time, there is no turning back to Allah subhanaw taala and seeking His forgiveness, because the Day of Judgment is about to begin. The second reason why Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us this is that unless I know what I know foretells these events,
so that we will take heed of them by becoming afraid of them. Now imagine someone starts telling you that the stars are coming down, the sky is ripping apart, everything that you consider to be stable is no longer stable anymore. The sky is ripping, the stars are falling, the Earth is coming above itself and the oceans are coming on to the earth and you're exploding onto the earth. So everything we knew to be stable is no longer stable. So here unless I know that is inciting fear inside of ourselves, warning us that the affairs of the day of judgment will be even more severe, more severe than this. So if you need to repent, the time to repent is now because that when that time comes and
it will come very quickly, you will not have time to turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala at that time, and this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to say, unlimited Neptune, Malka d'amato accurate. And every person at that time will know what it has sent forth, and what it has left behind. So in terms of what a soul sends forth, these are the good and bad deeds, each and every one of us knows, what are the good and bad deeds that we did. But why does Allah subhanho wa Taala talk about the things that they left behind? Why would Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the things that they left behind? Anyone know?
Why would I know that I mentioned that each soul shall know the things it put forth, and the things it left behind? Why is that significant?
And you want to take a guess Go ahead.
that will continue. So Excellent. So a person will do deeds that he thinks he's bringing forward with them. But in actuality, it continued after he passed away. That's one way of looking at it. The second way of looking at it are things that were left behind, out of for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So as a human being, there are certain temptations that you will have certain desires that you will have that you didn't take action upon. You left them for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. So that abandoning for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhanaw taala will show you the reward for it on the Day of Judgment. This is related to a verse in Surah verse number 50, where
even Kathy Rahim Allah, he mentioned the beautiful story. And this is the story of two men that are doing business. And eventually in their business. They got 8000 their homes, they had 8000 their homes, and one man said look, I'm doing all the work and I'm doing all the efforts, you just put the money in. So now that I have enough money, I don't want you as a partner anymore. I want to continue doing business by myself. So they parted ways with 4000. Durham's each the first man he goes and he buys a house and he invites his ex partner over and he says look at how beautiful my houses I bought this house for 1000 their homes. The second man he says, you know, congratulations, I wish you all
the best. And he takes his $1,000 homes, and he says Oh Allah, I'm donating this 1000 Durham's for your sake and charity, build me a house in general. Then some time goes by, and the first man he decides to get married to this beautiful woman and the dowry is 1000 Durham's, he invites the man over for celebration, his ex partner, the exporter comes and he says, look, you know, I have this beautiful wife now she cooks she cleans, look at how she's decorated the house. The man says congratulations, I wish you all the best and he leaves and again he donates 1000 Durham's and he says Oh Allah, I'm donating these 1000 Durham's that grant me a hole in Paradise and make her my
wife in paradise. Some time goes by even further. And the man This time he buys two gardens, and the gardens cost him 2000 dirhams. So he invites his friend over again. And he says, Look, I have these two gardens they give off such fruits. It's such a beautiful scenery to look at. Again, the man congratulates him wishes him all the best. And he goes away. And this time he says, Oh Allah, I'm donating 2000 dirhams for your sake, Grant me gardens, from the gardens of Paradise. And the angel of death at that time descends upon them, taking both of them, taking one to paradise and one to the hellfire. So when this second man who had donated all this money for the sake of Allah subhanaw
taala, he is told about all the blessings that he has about this beautiful mansion in Paradise, the beautiful house in Jannah. And then the gardens that he had purchased with his charity, the man is overjoyed. But since there was righteousness in him, he said that my friend showed me all of the blessings that he had in the dunya I want to invite him over to my house to my garden. I want to see what my house is like now, can I invite my friend over? And the angels tell him that your friend is now in the pits of the Hellfire is now in the pits of the hellfire. And they related to this verse over here? Why? Because that man obviously had a desire in this dunya to have a house to have a
beautiful wife to have all those gardens. But he kept leaving those things behind in this dunya longing for them and the Acura. So this is what the verse is referring to that those things that you are tempted by that you desire in this world, but you desire but you leave them behind for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala then Allah subhanaw taala will grant them to you in the hereafter as well. And this is when the soul will know those things that it put forth and those things that it left behind.
Allah subhanaw taala continues by saying, Yeah, you have insane omega Raka brb Kulkarni, that all mankind, what has made you careless about your Lord, the Most Noble and the most generous. So now you look at the theme that Allah subhanaw taala is changing over here that it started off talking about, what are the events that are going to take place on the day of judgment to Allah subhanaw taala talking about what is there going to be for mankind on the day of judgment? Now let's find out Allah brings it back to the dunya asking all of us a question. Yeah, you had insane Mathura Kabira be calculating that what has made you deluded about your Lord the most generous now starting off
with the first part of the sentence? Yeah, you went insane
on an appearance lol
It seems that Allah subhanaw taala is just referring to mankind in general. Would if we were to look at the Koran in relation to the Quran, you'll find that Allah subhanaw taala is referring to a particular set of mankind, and that is the mankind that Allah subhanaw taala refers to in Surah Ibrahim, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, In insana lava lumen Kaffir, that indeed mankind is ever Forever oppressive and ever denying of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is what some of the scholars have said that when Allah subhanaw taala says insane over here, it can be understood generally to mean all of mankind, but it can also be understood specifically, but to be
those, those of mankind that were oppressive and ungrateful towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when Allah subhanho wa Taala says, malerkotla Kabira be calculating that what has made you diluted pertaining to your Lord subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala has asked a question over here that he doesn't give us a direct answer to, but unless I know what Allah has blessed those people with intelligence to be able to figure out the answer. So when Allah subhanho wa Taala says mountsorrel, aka the Arabic alkylene, that what has made you diluted or made you heedless pertaining towards your Lord, the Most Generous? Why? What is the answer to this question? The question again
is what deludes mankind to becoming heedless of their Lord, the Most Generous? What is the answer to that? Go ahead.
Sorry. Fantastic, but I need something more specific.
What deludes mankind to becoming heedless of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Good, but something more specific. Try to relate it to the idea. Try to relate it to the
matter what Raka brb Kerikeri. Look at the name of Allah subhanaw taala. That's mentioned in this verse.
What has made you diluted
towards your Lord or he lives towards your Lord, the Most Generous?
Fantastic. So it is the generosity of Allah subhanho wa Taala that has made them heedless. So this is what Allah subhanaw taala is indirectly telling us that when Allah subhanho wa Taala gives mankind that is when mankind forgets Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when Allah subhanaw taala withholds for mankind, that is when mankind starts to remember Allah subhanaw taala. So now, what is the ideal case scenario? Should this should this mean that you know Allah subhanaw taala needs to always take things away from us, in order for us to remember him. No, that should not be the case. But rather Allah subhanho wa Taala should give us and we should be thankful to Allah subhanho wa
Taala. That is the ideal case scenario. It shouldn't be that we become so distracted by the generosity of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we only turn to him when Allah subhanaw taala takes things away, but rather we need to find a way that when Allah subhanaw taala gives us things, then we should thank Allah subhanaw taala for those things as well. And that's what I want to begin our discussion with right now with the lights Allah, how do we show our gratitude to Allah subhana wa Tada. So let us begin with general gratitude. Now imagine if the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that whoever does the following, he would have sufficed in showing
gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala right. Imagine if you could do something that if you were to do it, you will have sufficed in showing gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala for that today, and in fact, the Messenger of Allah wa sallam did teach it to us. It is a narration as soon as we dealt with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked his companions, should I not teach you that thing? That if you were to say it, you would have sufficed in showing gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Does anyone know the answer to this? Go ahead.
Very good guests. That's the second one. But that's not it. Go ahead.
Sent so this is the part of the remembrances of the morning and the evening, that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever says the following during the day and during the evening that he has sufficed in showing gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala so in the daytime, you will say my hubby mania Metin I'll be I had him in holidayiq flamenca takanashi kolak further can hamdu Wanaka Shakur, so what this translates to mean as that in this morning period
It whatever blessing that has reached me or from any of your creation, then it is from you alone without any partners. So all praise and thanks is due to you. And in the evening time you change it, ma'am sir beam in the mighty Nabil. I had him in halakhic Fleming kawada Casa de khaliq Pelican hamdulillah sugar and unser means what has what blessings have reached us in the evening there from you and you alone without any partners. So praise and thanks is due to you. So this is the first way of showing gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala incorporating this as a part of our as car that in the morning time you sit and in the evening time you sit, and with the lights Allah it was
sufficient for the morning and evening in showing gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two, is the act of specifically thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala. For the things that he has given you. So I want you to think about an act that you will specifically thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam taught us that when you do this, then you thank Allah subhanaw taala specifically for that deed. Who can think of it what is the thing I'm referring to?
Go ahead for for Rocco? No, nope.
It's a blessing for you. When you do this, it is a blessing for you. sneezing? Nope. It's very general. You just say Alhamdulillah after you sneeze, so good guests. But that's not the answer.
That's very good. That is very true. But that's not what I'm asking for right now, a specific thing that you do that the messenger of lots of Salaam said that you should say Alhamdulillah dot, dot dot for the thing that you just had.
Excellent. That's what I'm talking about. So the Messenger of Allah says, Adam, he taught us that after you finish eating, you say and hamdulillah he left the army, Armani that Praise be to Allah that provided me for this food. So in for this specific act, you're making a specific form of gratitude. And the scholars said that this is just a generic scenario, that while the messenger has taught us this specifically for the food, it can be applied to all other things that we enjoy. So person puts on nice clothes, yeah, something nice to drink, he has a good time with his friends, that he thanks Allah subhanaw taala specifically for all of these things, for this as part of doing
showcard to Allah subhanho wa Taala now particularly this act of saying, Alhamdulillah it's such a big, big blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. That if you look at the narrations that talk about the virtues of saying Alhamdulillah they mentioned and this is in the center of Albuquerque, that when Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses his slave, and the slave says Alhamdulillah when he has returned to Allah, greater than that which Allah Spanos, Allah gave him. So imagine that Allah gives you all of these blessings. And each time you say and hamdulillah for those blessings in specific, you're returning to Allah greater than that which he gave you, that Allah subhanaw taala has given
you the ability to do that. When you say Alhamdulillah number three, using the blessings that Allah subhana wa Taala has given you to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala using the blessings that Allah subhana wa Taala has given you to worship Allah subhanaw taala So you notice in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala commands, the family of dilute Elisa Lam by doing a Amarillo sugar. Yeah, I doubt that, you know, to physically do sugar or family of doubt. And it's called interpret this verse to mean that those blessings that Allah has given you use them to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. So for example, Allah has given you strength, then use that to help the Muslim community, Allah has
given you wealth, use it to support the Muslim projects, Allah has given you intelligence, use it to further the cause of the oma, these are all things that a person does sugar with. Now, these three things, who can repeat them from each URL? What are the three things that I mentioned?
Yeah, just now, the three ways of performance shocker.
No, no, not those things. We mentioned three things and that if a person does, he would have shown gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala. Go ahead.
That's what he just said right now know, how does a person show sugar to Allah subhanaw taala. We mentioned three ways of showing sugar to Allah subhanaw taala.
So generally saying on Hamden, and after every blessing, that's one way
fantastic learning to do hours of the morning and the evening. And what is the third thing?
I just mentioned it right. Now, what is the third thing?
No, that's the second one. I just mentioned the third thing right now.
So using the blessings that Allah gave you to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, using the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala gave you to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these are three ways that the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala can show
gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala now the beauty of all of these things is that when the slave unless I know Donna shows gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhana wa tada increases those blessings. Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells us in suit I brought him weather in Chicago, that he didn't know that if you were to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala, he will increase you in those blessings. Now which one of us wouldn't want more strength, want more money one more time, one, two or more of all the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given us, Allah subhanaw taala tells us that if you're thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for these things and you show gratitude, then be
the lights Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will increase you in those things. And this is how the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala gets out of having this verse being applied to him. Now Gara Kabira became what has made you heedless of your Lord subhanho wa Taala you get you stopped that he listeners by being thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we just learned three ways how then Allah subhanho wa Taala he goes on to continue under the Hanukkah Kapha. So work of either luck, that he is the one that created you fashioned Jews and gave you Jew proportion. So now when you look at the creation of Allah subhanaw taala you'll notice that unless my notes and accreted us all
different, some are short, some are tall, some are skinny, some are big, some are weak, some are strong, some are dark in color, some are light in color, Allah Subhana, Allah created all of this. Now generally, when you look at a factory, you'll notice that a factory just manufacturers, the same thing over and over again, was Allah subhanho wa Taala due to his greatness, it's not like your factories manufacturing the same thing. But Allah subhanaw taala is showing you his color. By creating the similar creation, you're different in every aspect. Whereas even if you were to have two people from the same country that you say, even from the same mother, they will still react
differently, they will still act differently. This is the the Hulk of Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah subhanho wa Taala even though what he created things to be similar, they're different in so many respects, the way they act, how long they will live, you know what their sustenance will be, who they will marry, will they have children will they not have children? It's all one creation, but with so many differences. So now Allah subhanho wa Taala is drawing our attention to the Creator. So Allah started off by asking what made you heedless about Allah Spanos Allah? Allah subhanaw taala is informing us Who is this Allah subhanho wa Taala that he is referring to that he is the one that
created he is the one that fashion and he is the one that proportioned fee au surah Tim Masha Allah Kabak, and it was only Allah subhanho wa Taala that was able to choose what face shape and fashion you would be created, that no one else has made that decision that perhaps you know, I'm not saying this is what anyone specifically your parents could have been ugly as anything. But then Mashallah, you came with such a beautiful child, or it could be the exact opposite. You know, both of your parents were models and then you came out to be like this ugly duckling right? It was Allah subhanho wa Taala that he is the one that specifically chose how each and every one of us would be, and no
one else had to share in this decision besides Allah subhanaw taala and again, another point of reflection over the mandala of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now unless I know it's either, he continues on talking about the attitude than most of mankind will have, he says kettlebell to cut the bone a bit then nay but they deny the deen. Now generally when we talk about Deen, it is generally translated as a way of life or religion per se. But when Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about Deen, it's more about Recompense. So when Allah subhanaw taala says Maliki oma Deen, it is the day of recumbents Greek contents, meaning that if you put forward good deeds, then Allah subhanaw taala
will compensate you with good, but if you put forward bad deeds, then Allah subhanaw taala will compensate you for bad. So that is what the dean is referring to. And this is one of the greatest signs of heedlessness, that when a person is no longer cognitive, of the Day of Judgment, because you'll notice that one of the greatest distinctions between behind a good person and a bad person is how cognitive they are of the Day of Judgment, a person will do good to get reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And a person will stay away from bad out of getting reward from Allah subhana wa Tada. And likewise, if a person is tempted by bad, he will abstain from it, because he fears that if
he does this bad deed, then he will be compensated with that in the Hereafter, as well. So that is the effect of that the Day of Judgment test. And you'll notice that one of the signs of weak demand and the sign of disbelief is becoming heedless of the Day of Judgment itself. So here Allah subhana wa tada says, kettlebell to cut the bone a bit thin. So here are lots of I noticed you referring to specifically those human beings that were heedless of Allah subhanaw taala. One of their characteristics is that they will be heedless of the compensation
That you will receive from Allah subhanho wa Taala whether it was good to the strive to do more good deeds, or whether it was bad so that they would abstain from the bad deeds that they're doing, were in a coma halfling but very over you are angels in charge to watch you. So let's find out that he says we're in an equal the halfling that upon all of you are half within. Now when we talk about the term HIV, it generally means to protect. So let's talk about protection or preservation when it comes to the Quran. So someone memorizes the Quran, we call him half of the Quran. Now there is a very interesting story with a national bacilli that an individual came to him and he said, kill
Allah who originally half eaten Quran for a jab, but little Koran happy though, so a man came and he said that so and so has memorized the Koran or has preserved in the Koran. And it has been responded by saying no, but rather it is the Koran that has preserved him. No, it is the brother of the Quran, that is preserved him. So now if you look at this concept of how a person who has memorized the Quran is protected from evil, and not because he memorized the Koran, per se, but it is the blessings from the Koran that are rather protecting this individual. So it's not the American version of himself that caused him to be protected, but it is due to the blessings of the Koran. So
now here, Allah subhanaw taala is using the exact same structure that there are amongst you, and on top of you monitoring you, those things that protect you, when a crime happening, they're upon you are those things that are protecting you, how are they protecting you, the protection of the angels comes in two ways. Number one, is in the spiritual sense, that when the angels are present, spiritually, that area becomes more blessing. So you look out the massage, you look at gatherings of knowledge, how much sin can actually take place, no one in here is going to do an act of sin. Because it's the machine that is a blessing place. You don't do those things in the masjid. But it
is part of the blessing of the budget, that it will not send what take place over here. And part of that is due to the presence of angels, though that is the first way that you are protected that due to the presence of angels and righteous gatherings, you are protected from committing sin, which will cause your own destruction. And then number two, the second way that the angels protect you is by helping Allah subhanho wa Taala are not helping other Allah, Allah because Allah doesn't need help, but rather fulfilling the commands of Allah subhanaw taala to be in our service. So I want you to think about something that
in a city, actually, I'll give you a practical example in the city like Edmonton, this was maybe a I think in 2009, if I'm not mistaken, it reached minus 52 degrees. This is like without the windchill factor, smack bang in the middle of winter minus 52 degrees, it got so cold, that you could no longer flush your toilet than it was frozen and got so cold, that there was only a limited amount of water running through the water streams. So what did people have to do to get water, then he had to go I think it was
Town Hall, or what's the other city hall, it was city hall where there were massive trucks, you'd have to bring big containers. And then you will take those containers back to your house. Now you think about this man, like an 80 year old man, a 70 year old man, he has to bring these big containers. And he can carry maybe about 20 liters, you know, these big water bottles, they hold about 20 liters of water. So he has these 20 liters of water. And he's taking it back to his house. And he's struggling with this. And you see this is happening to everyone. And this is only for 20 liters of water. Now I want you to think about how many liters of water unless and I know what the
other transports on a daily basis through the angels, that Allah subhanaw taala causes millions of liters of water to be formed into clouds. And these clouds are then moved by the angels. And then Allah subhanaw taala gives the command to send down that rain and the angels monitor that and then the rain comes down, millions of liters of rain come down. So shows you how even through the presence of angels, Allah subhanho wa Taala keeps mankind sustained. Right. And this is from the presence of angels of how human beings are protected. A third and last interpretation of this were in a coma have been is that just like an individual preserves the Koran to memory and memorizes the
Koran, then these angels are memorizing each and every single thing that you do, so that when you go and stand in front of Allah subhana wa Tada, these angels will testify for or against you. So they will say Oh Allah, this person did this good deed or or law, this person did this bad deed and they're memorizing each and every single thing that you did to present to Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is what it means we're in an equal the half building. Now let's handle data continues to describe these angels, Karen and Kathy been there
There are honorable angels writing down these deeds. Now why would Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned down honorable I was listening or sorry rather I was reading the Tafseer of the sutra. And the author mentions that when it comes to human beings testifying one another, one of the easiest ways to get out of another person's justification can be this person is biased against me, this person doesn't like me, they have a vendetta or an agenda against me. So we should disregard their testament good justification or the testimonial against me. here Allah subhanaw taala is denying that, that the angels have no agenda. They have no vendetta, but rather they're honorable creations
of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they're writing down each and every single thing so that there is no mistake, you cannot claim that the angels made a mistake memorizing these things, but rather the angels wrote every single thing down and they're honorable that they will never, you know,
what's the word I'm looking for? or press any of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala so what you did is what you what will be presented to you Bismillah E to Allah, Ya Allah Mona Mater, I know that the angels know that which you do know what's interesting over here. And for those of you that attend the Wednesday class, we learned the difference between Yamanote Orianna Mona Matta unknown via Anna Mona matamanoa. Who can tell me the difference between these two saying Yala Mona Mehta alone and Yana Mona Mehta, Milan, what is the difference between these two, that the angels will know that what you do, but what is the difference between a male and female? And you want to
remember, go ahead.
Very good. So Iman is when intention when a person does something with an intention, this now becomes common, it requires knowledge, it requires intention. Whereas the term fair, this is an action that is done without intention without prior knowledge to it. So an act like sneezing would that be an amateur or that we have failed?
Who speaking Who?
Yeah, so it would be a fail, because it's not something Hey, I'm going to sneeze now. And then you sneeze, that's not what happens. But why there is something that the body the body naturally does. So this is called a fear. Whereas a person he when he drinks water, it doesn't just naturally happen, but rather he makes the intention. Okay, I'm going to drink now. So he intentionally drinks that water. So that is the difference between a man and fail. Now here, Allah subhanaw taala is saying, Yeah, Allah, Mona Matt, of unknown. The significance behind this is that the Armand a person does will be fewer than the fear a person does. So the majority of sorry, so all of the actions, or
a lot of the actions can fall under threat. And it is only the ones that are considered that a person will be judged upon. But the angels are documenting everything, they're documenting all of the images. They're documenting all of the fun. So every time you sneeze, every time you cough, every time you just naturally glance at something, the angels are documenting all of this, this is why I must find what Allah says they know every single thing that you do from the field. And then Allah subhanaw taala continues in a Bharata dafina in there, indeed the abroad will be in delight. Now this really gets beautiful over here. So aina is an alumna for Tokyo that Allah subhanaw taala
uses or in Arabic in Arabic, it is used for the sake of emphasis. So when there's emphasis implied you use the term in then Allah subhanho wa Taala says abroad and abroad is the plural of borrower. So when a person is righteousness, as well as righteous, he is known as borrower. And the act of righteousness is known as beer. So that kindness that we're meant to show towards our parents, this is known as beer okay. And when a person shows beer regularly, he becomes known as bar Okay. Now this term bar can be made into a plural in two ways. It can be made into a plural in two ways. The first way is abroad. And the second way is Bharara Okay, the first way is abroad. The second way is
The first way, which is abroad, this is what we call jumbo Killa that even though it is a plural, there are very few people that are actually like this. So what Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying is that in and abroad that while indeed these righteous people, while they are a plural meaning, it's not just one or two, they are a plural, there are a small number of plural and this is one of the you know, beauties of the Arabic language that in the English language when you use many, it just means a lot right? Whereas in the Arabic language, you can actually specify Is this a large number or a small number? So
When Allah subhanaw taala uses a broad instead of Bharara, this is a clear indication that the righteous people will only be a few. Now, what's interesting over here is why does Allah subhanho wa Taala use the term bottom for righteousness? Because when you look inside the Koran, you'll notice that Allah subhanaw taala draws opposites. So better is the ocean. And bar is the land itself. What is the difference between ocean and land Who can tell me this doesn't require a PhD, differences between land and ocean Go ahead.
Fantastic, but I need something a little bit more complex than that, that was at the simplest level just go a notch higher, what is the difference between water and land?
In terms of movement, which one moves in which ones stay still
fantastic and water moves. So here, Allah subhanho wa Taala, he shows us why he calls righteousness bear, because righteousness is what will give you your foundation, it will make you solid, it will make you firm. But when a person has no righteousness, he will be all over the place, he will sometimes do good sometimes do bad his head will all over the place, sometimes worshipping Allah sometimes not worshiping Allah worshipping all sorts of things in between. So there is that concept of stability that comes with righteousness. So that is what makes an individual is that he when he becomes righteous, he becomes stable. Now, what's interesting, even more, is that what is so special
about Bella, when Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about our parents were meant to show them better. How is this different from your son, or just being good to them, Bill maruf, like we commanded with our with our spouses, what is better? Exactly, Bear, my dear brothers and sisters, is to show righteousness towards our parents, with the emotion of love unconditionally. So with the emotion of love unconditionally, so when it comes towards our parents, we should be doing good deeds towards them, without us even asking without them even asking for it. And number two, we should be happy and pleased that we're doing these deeds for them. So you'll notice that sometime your parents tell you,
you know, go take out the garbage, go wash the dishes, you become upset at them. And you say, hey, at least I'm washing the dishes, or at least I'm taking out the garbage. Islam does not want that from you. Islam wants you to wash the dishes and take out the garbage while you're happy. So it's not about the action within them itself, but it's the emotion behind it as well, then it has to have that good emotion and that's what makes it an act of better. So you'll notice that just being obedient is not sufficient when it comes to your parents. And likewise in all other aspects of the deen itself. You know, person who just does the his Salah like he plays his Salah quickly, yes, he's
fulfill the obligation. But where was that heartfelt? Who? Sure. Where was that longing and desire to meet Allah in that Salah. And when a person reaches that stage, this is when the person becomes from the abroad. And you'll notice that it's so difficult to reach that stage. That is why Allah subhanaw taala says that there are so few in number because these physical deeds, a lot of us are doing them. But that emotional attachment taking you to the next level through the internal state. That's what makes a person from the abroad and then Allah subhana wa tada he can lose this verse by saying in the abre laughy name, that indeed these righteous people are feeling their aim. Now
listen, I know what Allah He doesn't mention in the Acura but rather he says just generally the fi name. So here unless I know what the other saying that they will be in a state of goodness in this life as well as in the hereafter. And no other story comes to mind in the story of even Tamia Rahim Allah. Whenever Nakayama Rahim Allah came to visit him in prison, he asks him a simple question. And he says how are you and imitate him Allah He responds by saying in the dunya Jenna monomial Hola Hola. Hola. Jenna Tila Hello, there indeed, in this life is a paradise and whoever does not enter the paradise in this life will not enter the paradise in the hereafter. So now that is deep within
of itself. He goes on to explain what this means. He says what can my enemies do to me that if they were to imprison me, this is my time to be alone with Allah subhanho wa Taala. If they were to exile me from the lens, then this is my time to see the lens of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his many, many blessings. And if they were to kill me, then this is martyrdom in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you look at his internal state, and you find that imitate me or him Allah, he found a way to make the best out of every bad situation, that he had figured it all out in his head to Panama. And this is what he meant that in the fit dunya agenda monomial diet. Hello, Jonathan.
Hello, then whoever doesn't achieve that stability, that peace, that tranquility, that serenity with Islam in this life, then you will not reap the fruits of Paradise in the hereafter that the accurate and the dunya. They're not disconnected. They're not two separate entities, but rather the dunya is reflective of the accurate in terms of your actions and the way that you are. So if Allah has granted you serenity and tranquility, and happiness and contentment in this life through your Islam, then be the light Allah, you will reap the fruits of which in the hereafter as well. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala continues with the exact opposite. He goes on to say, we're in Fujairah, the fija
him that indeed, those people that were perpetually doing evil deeds, Laffy jehane, that they will be in the blazing fire. Now this blazing fire again, it doesn't necessarily mean that the Hereafter, but it could represent an eternal state. And this is what you see spamela You know, this is something that Boone is not here right now, but I'm stealing this from Buddha. He has this slide in one of his poems, where he talks about how you have these superstars, these athletes, these actors and actresses, Allah gives him so much millions and billions of dollars, all the houses, you can dream of all the cars that you can think of anything else that they desire, Allah has given it to
them. And then when you look at who are the first people to commit suicide, it's them. Now what causes them to commit suicide, then on the opposite end, you look at in a situation like Africa, where it's going through poverty, it's going through droughts, people are not eating for days, they don't have clean water, people are dying all over the place their sickness everywhere, but you don't hear of people committing suicide, people are content over there. What is the difference between the two, the difference is the internal state, that a person when he is blessed, he needs to naturally turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's when you will become serene and tranquil again. And when
he doesn't thank Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's when that blazing fire on the inside of not knowing the purpose of life of not going where your life is heading, of not finding meaning and purpose, that starts to build on the inside. And this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that people do bad deeds, because it takes away the pain from not knowing their purpose. people drink because they don't want to face reality, people do drugs because they don't want to face reality. People are promiscuous with their sexuality, because they don't want to face the reality. And once they learn how to deal with that reality, that's when they don't have to do all of these things. So this is
what Allah subhana wa tada is saying that those bad deeds will just build an internal fire that will eventually take you to the real fire in the hereafter. So if we don't resolve your issues now, there's going to be no time to resolve them in the hereafter. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala continues on to say
they're in they will enter and taste It's burning flame on the day of recompensate of Recompense. You're Sloane Yama, Dean, that on that day, these people that did the bad deeds, then they will face the fire of the bad deeds that they did. One man who man had before he been and that they will not be absent from the fire, that no matter how many excuses they try to make, no matter how much they try to run away, they will be unable to escape that fire. Mama Dada kamiyama Dean. So mama Dada karma yomo Dean, and what will make you know, of the greatness of this day recompensate recompense, and then again, what will make you know of the greatness of the Day of Recompense? So here unless I
know what data is saying, that use your intellect or aka is to use questioning to look at the science to analyze to assess the greatness of that today. Meaning that this day of judgment is something that us as believers were meant to ponder and reflect over from time to time, that what will be our state on that day will be be of those people that we longed to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala in this dunya so Allah subhanaw taala longs to meet us because we're doing those good deeds, are we going to be of those people that don't want to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala because we've been so sinful, because we know that what Allah subhana wa Taala can do to us and what we are
deserving of so we don't want to meet Allah and then Allah subhanho wa Taala does not want to meet us as well. That is something to reflect upon. That what are we preparing for that day? Are we at that state that we can say I actually long to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala through the deeds that I'm doing, and if that's not the case, Allah subhanaw taala is giving us an opportunity to reach that level between light Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala concludes the sutra by saying Yeoman atomico enough soon enough sin Shia when amblyomma even Linda and it is on that day that no person will have any power to do anything for another and the decision that they
will be for Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. So in this dunya we have the ability to help one another out. You know, if a person is a boss at a company, he cannot hire anyone that he wishes he can make those decisions. But on that day, everyone is on an equal playing field. No one can help anyone out, except by the mission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that final decision in terms of you going to paradise, you being you know, from the high levels or low levels of Paradise go entering the Hellfire, how long a person will stay in the Hellfire, all of those decisions will be made by Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. So if you need anyone on your side, it is Allah subhana wa Tada. And this
is the point of the sutra. Again, another mccunn surah, that Allah subhana wa tada is addressing towards the Quran, that all the authority of the power that they have, is going to be of no avail in the Hereafter, except if you have a muscle panel data on your site. And then when you have a muscle annual data on your site, then be the lights Allah Allah subhanaw taala will give you the infinite blessings of Paradise will help you you know achieve the highest levels of your dose. You need to have no data on your site long to meet him do those deeds that will help you attain that confidence. And with Allah He tada you become you can become from those abroad that are in the state of name and
this life and in the Hereafter. And we pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes us from amongst them, I mean, while Allahu taala Adam Salama, send them about a cut in the Vienna Muhammad Ali, he was sotheby he was sent them, and we'll open up the floor for q&a inshallah, if anyone has any questions.
four jar is an emphatic form. Right? So fudge it is the regular term, and full jar is the emphatic term that is plural as well. So now this is
I don't want to see something that I'm not 100% sure of. But again, this also seems like this is going to be general killer as well, that was referring to those select group of people that were extremely bad. You know, every class has that one troublesome student is like Allah saying that, even from amongst the nations, you'll have the select group of people that were terribly bad that Allah punishes them in this dunya through what they feel on the inside, and then in the accurate again, as well. Allah knows best. But it's also possible that the term for john over here is just a general term for anyone that transgresses because that coincides with the first part where the last
panel data says, Yeah, you have insane so the generic term of mankind. So let's find out what Allah knows best. And I'm just sharing my thoughts on that one among those best, there is a brother Go ahead.
Fantastic. So now this, this goes back to the question, when does a person get that reward when he makes the intention for the reward when he makes the intention from a spinal mozzarella? And the answer to that is that person will get the reward when he makes the intention for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. Because we if Allah subhanaw taala is not in the equation, then there is no reward in that situation. And unless final down on those best, and actually, that reminds me of a very good point, that you know, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he actually taught us what to say when righteous deeds are finished. So for example, like when the lights are going to be
finishing with the seal of Jaisalmer. inshallah we hope it's considered from the righteous deeds, that when these big deeds are completed, the Messenger of Allah says, and I'm taught us to say Alhamdulillah before the heat masala has that Praise be to Allah through whose benevolence these righteous deeds were able to be completed. Now Imam Shafi Rahim Allah He had a beautiful, I guess reflection on this. He says that how you know generous is Allah subhanho wa Taala. And how worthy of praise is Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah granted us the tofik to do the righteous deeds, so we praise Him and that will never itself becomes another righteous deed. So the worshipping of unless I
know it's Allah becomes continuous. And that's something to ponder and reflect upon. When we're talking about showing chocolate to Allah subhanaw taala Go ahead, okay. Yeah.
Fantastic. So this is something that the scholars actually deferred over that do the angels know the intention.
themselves, or does Allah subhanho wa Taala inform them about the intentions, because obviously the angels, they will do write down the deeds that are based upon intentions. So someone leaves something off out of a righteous intention. There's no action that took place there, right? Because it's an abandonment of action that is causing reward. So the difference of opinion amongst the scholars is does Allah inform them? Or do they already know? And unless I know what Allah knows best, if you look at the text as a whole, it seems that Allah subhanho wa Taala actually informs them about the intentions and that is when they write that down.
So in our thoughts, it breaks down into like, several scenarios, right. So a good thought, that is followed by a good deed gets to rewards the reward for the thought and the reward for the deed. A good thought that is not acted upon, just gets a reward for the good thought alone, than the bad thought. This is divided up into several categories as well. A bad thought that is abandoned for the sake of Allah is rewarded. A bad thought that is abandoned because of inability, a person still gets one sin for that a bad thought that is acted upon, then a person still gets one bad deed for that as well. Willa huhtala
this she thought don't know our thoughts. She don't inspires us with thoughts. So those thoughts that are not originated from shaytaan she doesn't know them. But the thoughts that she thought inspires then obviously she thought knows those thoughts will not huhtala
that will conclude with that semantic alarm will become the shadow in the heartland as the critical to the lake. I'll leave you with one last riddle for you guys to figure out. This riddle is as follows. that a woman is praying Salah, okay, she has no hijab on, she's not covering her hair.
A man comes into the room, and he whispers something into her ear through which her Salah becomes null and void. What did the man whisper inside of her ear? I'll tell you guys next week inshallah. Figure it out. Okay, I'll give you guys the answer next week within the heat sauna. So think about that. Even if you try googling it, you're not going to get the answer.
