When I was a biller human surely unforeseen a woman sejati Amina Maria de la Fernando de la, la la, la la, la la la la la hula hula de cada was shadow under Mohammed Abdullah who wore a suit of sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira Allahu Allah in Medina, Ilana lantana, for alumna and foreigner, one foreigner be my lantana resident Maria Karim.
So inshallah tonight we're going to be discussing Soto nezhat. The term naza. It means to post something violently to extract something violently. So I want you to think about a time where perhaps something is like jammed shut. So maybe it's like your car door, you know, right now we're in the beginning of winter, imagine your corridors a bit wet, and the corridor gets jammed. And I want you to think about the effort and the struggle you have to put to pull that door open, it's a struggle to do it. And this is what NASA actually means it is to struggle with something and to pose something violently. So that is what NASA means. Now, what is not dow or the NASDAQ in the surah
actually mean, we'll come to that in the light either. So as has been a reoccurring theme inside Joseph ama, this again, is addressing one of the issues of the Hereafter, and particularly the journey of the soul. So what happens to the soul of a human being after it dies, after the body dies, what happens to the soul of the human being? This is what the soul is addressing in the beginning, then it addresses the story of Musa alayhis salam, and then it comes back to the Day of Judgment. Now we want to try to figure out what is the relationship between these three subjects, the relationship between the depth of the human body and the soul being extracted, the number two,
the story of Musa alayhis salaam, and then number three, the day of judgment, that's something that we want to figure out with the lights on, was this sort of a makansutra or a Medina sola, like the rest of Jerusalem and this is a Maki soda. And this is based upon the short verses based upon the intense emotions in it. And likewise, just the content dealing with the Day of Judgment. Genuinely, that meant it was a murky Sora. So anytime you come as soon as that deals with arcada, more than likely, it is a suitor that was revealed and Makkah. So now let us start off with the very first verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, oneness zrt goroka. So Allah subhanaw taala he begins with the
vow and hence and what will help over here is when Allah subhanho wa Taala takes an oath. So here Allah subhanaw taala is taking an oath, by the nuzhat by the nazjatar. Now it's interesting to look over here is when Allah subhanaw taala takes an oath in the Koran, what are you know, some of the precursors to that oath as in Why is Allah subhana wa Taala taking that oath. So sometimes Allah subhanaw taala is taking an oath to show the importance of that thing that he's taking an oath about. or number two, that Allah subhanaw taala is addressing a people that don't actually believe him. So let's find out what Allah takes an oath by that thing. Or number three, when Allah subhanho
wa Taala wants something to be addressed in a state of anger, then Allah subhanaw taala will take an oath by it as well. And here we introduce a fourth category. And this is when Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to give a warning when Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to threaten people when he wants to give them a warning. Sometimes he will take an oath by that thing, as well. And this is what we see over here when Allah subhanaw taala is swearing by the snatching that is very violent, unless I know it's either it's taking this oath to warn the people about something.
So now let us discuss the scholarly opinions about the NASDAQ's the scholars different on three opinions over here, one of them being the opinion of the majority and two being the opinion of the minority. So let's start off with the minority opinions first. So opinion number one is that the Nazis aren't they are the stars that are in the sky. So as the Day of Judgment approaches, Allah subhanaw taala will snatch the stars away from the sky violently. This is what the NASDAQ is referring to. This was the opinion of Imam and bubbly Rahim Allah who Tada. Opinion number two. This is the opinion that the Nazia ads are actually violent winds that come by. So if you ever been in a
tornado, you will see or if you've ever witnessed a tornado, you will see that a tornado, it's not just things very, very violently. So even if there's like a car that is parked, you know, it's in park, it's not moving, it's only neutral. It will take that car and just, you know, scrump it up and it'll start pulling inside of that tornado. So it's a very violent wind. So that was the second option.
In that analogy, art is referring to the winds that come around. Now this is based upon two issues. Issue number one is that when you look at this concept of add the elephant at the end, when Allah subhanaw taala uses this in the Koran generally means the violent winds. So you think about the value, add the artifact, all of these are violent wins. So based upon that the scholar said that this is referring to violent wins. A second thing is that the majority opinion was that these nazjatar is actually referring to angels to the angels that will extract the source. And in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala actually criticizes the people that say that the angels are of the
female gender, or they are of the female gender. So here the elephanta This is a plural that is used for the feminine gender. So based upon that, they said this cannot be they cannot be angels, because almost finalidad criticizes this. So why would Allah subhanaw taala use this form. So that was the second opinion. And then the third opinion is, and this is the opinion of the majority, that and as the art is actually referring to the angels that extract the source, the angels that extract the source, and this is based upon a hadith that is found in the Muslim Ummah, and in other various narrations, that when the soul of the disbeliever is extracted, it is extracted as if water has been
put on cotton, and then stretched out. So I don't know if you've ever had cotton and it's gotten damp and moist, you try to tear that cotton apart, it becomes very difficult to tear apart. It's like holding on. It's almost like when you have Velcro that is attached very, very strongly. You tried to dis attach that Velcro, that is what is happening. So here on this channel, Atlanta is telling us the journey of the soul, and in the Hadith that is found from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the disbelieving soul.
When the moment of death comes, they will actually see angels in their worst forms angels in their worst forms. So I want you to think about, you know, the most hideous creation you can think of, and that is the form the angels will come in. And then the angel of death will come and they will, it's all will be snatched out. Now the different overworld will the snow will be snatched out this had eaten narrating to you, it's it makes it seem as if the soul is snatched out of the mouth. So literally the Angel of Death puts his hands in and just snatches the soul out of the body. Another narration talks about that the soul is actually pulled out of the toasts it is extracted from the
toes, and Allah subhanaw taala knows best. It seems that this difference of opinion is based upon the righteous soul and the wicked soul, that the righteous soul it will easily depart from the toes, whereas the wicked soul, it will be snatched out from the mouth and the soul is holding on to its body that it doesn't want to depart because it fears its reckoning. So when the Angel of Death takes that soul out now it takes the soul out and the two angels that are there from the you know the the worst of appearances, they will have a bag with them, they'll have a bag with them. And this is a bag that is from the hellfire. So it has the worst of odors that is from the the roughest of you
know cloth that you can think of and that is where the soul will be placed in. Then the soul is placed inside that bag and it is a it is ascended up to Allah subhana wa tada and add it as it is ascending. The angels are criticizing the soul. Then what are wicked and fowl soul this was what a weekend fall. So this was until it reaches the higher levels. And then this the angel starts saying come out to the wrath of your Lord come out to the wrath of your Lord, until eventually the soul reaches Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah Subhana Allah knows best what happens at that point, but almost I know it's either affirms that this is a wicked soul, and then it is returned back to the
body once the body is inside of the grave once the body is inside of the grave. So now the question arises what if the body doesn't go inside of a grave? What if the body is cremated? What if the body is thrown into the ocean wonderful person drowns. So the scholars mentioned over here that the soul is returned to the body, in its resting place. So whatever place the body comes to rest at that is where the soul will be returned to the body. And this is the affair of the disbelieving soul. So you can see what you know, a terrible journey it is panela that not only did you live your life in weakness, but even the way you a your ending, Allah subhanaw taala starts giving you a foretell of
what your afterlife is going to be like. And this is what the NASDAQ actually are that the angels they snatch the soul out of the body while the snow doesn't want to leave. So it's literally you know, like the the vessels inside of your body, the veins, the capillaries, all of those things, they're being snatched apart and then Allah subhanaw taala he tells us about the
Good saw, he tells us about the good sore. He says one National Party national
national power, it comes from untangle not. So you'll notice that when you teach your kids to tie a knot, you teach them to tie a knot that's very, very simple. They literally literally, you'll just touch it, and it will untie itself. That's what NASA is. So there's no struggle in opening that thing. And this is when the soul of the believer passes away, that the passing of the soul, it comes out very easily. And there are two angels that come that are in the most beautiful of forms, the most beautiful of creations that you can think of, that is what the angels come as. And then they're placed in the most beautiful of bags with the best of fragrances. And as they're being raised up to
Allah subhanho wa Taala the angels are saying the most beautiful things that you know, welcome, oh, believing, so welcome or righteous saw. And then the angels will say, come out to the pleasure of your Lord come out to the pleasure of your Lord, Allah rules on that soul, and the soul is placed back with the body once it is inside the grave. So that is what a national party national is that here almost I know that is talking about those angels that are righteous that you know, bring about the righteous soul and take the soul of the righteous. Then almost final data goes on to say, what's behind the Sabha. And by those that swim along, literally, they just go floating in the air. So here
listen, I know Dan is giving an introduction to other angels. So there are some angels literally, that they're just floating around in the creation of Allah subhanaw taala. Now, what is the purpose of these angels? The scholars mentioned that these angels aren't the angels of writing down good deeds, but these are the angels that when they see a good deed happening, they'll join that gathering, and inshallah Let's hope that you know, they're joining a gathering like this with Allahu taala. So this angel is literally just float around looking for obedience of Allah subhanaw taala to join that obedience. First, the karate subaqua. And these are the angels that are just racing
around. These are these angels are making masaba that are racing one another. Now what are they racing for? Again, this is a score this is an issue of scholarly difference. This is the racing over here is one opinion is for those righteous deeds again, to be in the gatherings of righteousness. And number two, this is to be in the service of Allah subhana wa Tada. So when Allah subhanaw taala gives them a command, these angels race in trying to fulfill the command of Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is related to the very next verse, wellness and what Allah says feluda buratti Amira and those angels that fulfill the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala those angels that fulfill the
command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these first five verses, Allah subhanaw taala gives an introduction to the angels. Now what we want to discuss is wireless panel data is given to these angels, unless I know that gives an introduction to these angels, because number one, the Quraysh they had, you know, many misconceptions pertaining to the angels, number one they used to deny them, if they did accept them, they call them the daughters of Allah subhanho wa Taala and other you know bad things about the angels. So here Allah subhana wa tada is portraying some of the reasons why angels exist. Now for the believer, why would Allah subhanaw taala remind the believers of angels,
and this goes back to our a man that you know from the articles of faith that we discuss, part of it is belief in angels. So who can tell me some of the benefits or just one benefit from the belief in angels? Why do we believe in angels? How does this benefit us? Go ahead.
Fantastic, really good. So it makes us take account of ourselves and makes us take account of our selves. So at the beginning of the slide talks about the angels that will extract the soul. So it reminds us that one day our souls will be extracted. So we need to fear Allah. Likewise, the accountability that the angels are writing down each and every single thing that we do, so we need to make sure we hold ourselves accountable. And this is why I'm Pablo de la, I know. He says Hasselblad for SOCOM cobbler into hospitable, hospitable, and for SOCOM, Copland, to have people that bring yourself to account before you are brought to account. So these angels they're taking
your account, hold yourself accountable before the day comes with the angels present these records of the deeds that used to do what is another benefit of the belief in angels who can tell me what is another benefit of the belief in angels?
How does the angels benefit us?
Yes, but why? How does this benefit us? How does this make us better, better people? Or what does it bring to us?
Fantastic. So from the benefits of the angels, was ye so during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and during the time before that, the angels were responsible for bringing revelation down from Allah subhanho wa Taala
So this was a big blessing for all of humanity, that God had sent them guidance. And the guidance came through the way of these angels bringing it to mankind, we need one more benefit. Go ahead.
Fantastic. So one should feel a sense of safety, that unless find out that there has these angels all around his creation, to be there for their goodness. So the angels take care of the bringing of the rain, they take care of the thunder, they take care of even, you know, the growing of the crops, Allah subhanaw taala assigns angels for all of these things, so they're there for our help and for our benefit. Now, when I think about this, one of the other benefits that we can develop from this is, as human beings, we always need role models, something to you know, model ourselves after something to try to aim ourselves after Allah subhanaw taala. He describes the angels in the Koran
while you're following the model that they do that which Allah subhanho wa Taala commands them to do, meaning they never disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala. So as human beings, we're looking for that model of, you know, Who should we try to emulate? Along with the prophets, Allah subhanaw taala has sent those angels as models that never disobey Allah subhanaw taala and that is why when you see something very pure, even in the English language will say this looks very angelic. So the character you want to try to develop with Allah subhanho wa Taala is the angelic character where you try your utmost best to not disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala at all. And this, in fact, is a very important
subject to study and understand very well, because this is a part or an integral part of our Eman is one of the six pillars of faith that if you don't understand properly, perhaps it could take you outside the fold of Islam. So now Allah subhanho wa Taala, he changes the subject, he changes the subject, and he moves on to the actual day of judgment itself, the actual day of judgment itself. Allah subhanaw taala goes on to say, yo moto g4 Raja that was on that day when the first trumpet is blown, and everything shakes and everything shakes. So here Allah subhanaw taala Andrews introduces us to the concept of the trumpet. Now, as mentioned previously, the scholars different how many
times is the trumpet blown? Is it blown two or three times the difference of opinion, we'll only find out on the Day of Judgment. But what is important to know is that when the first trumpet is blown, this is to knock out all of mankind. This is to knock out all of mankind. So anyone that is alive on the planet at that time, this will kill them, and everything will be dead. Now, what does everything actually encompass? Does it include the angels? Does it include the plants does it include? What does it include? Exactly? Allah subhanaw? taala knows best but it seems like everything will die at that time. And then the Trumpet will be blown a second time. Allah subhanaw
that it will have a follow up. The Radhika is, I don't know if you've ever been around like an annoying child. Maybe I'm just thinking about my own daughter. But when they copy and imitate everything that you do, so you lift up your foot, they will lift up their foot, you start talking, they start talking, you say Salaam Aleykum Selam Aleykum. And that's, you know what, how the child will act when they're copying you. The law defines exactly that something that will imitate you to the tee, and the raw data that's being mentioned over here to dharohar Radhika, that it will be followed up by that imitator. This is the second blowing of the trumpet. And the second blowing of
the trumpet is when everything will be brought back to life. And the first one that will be brought back to life is the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as as mentioned in an authentic hadith. But what happens is that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as is brought back to life, he sees another prophet, that's all ready by the option of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Who knows which prophet that is?
musasa fantastic. It is musala his solemn, he says I will see most of his Salaam and I will not know did Moses musante salam resurrected before me or did he or was he not killed? As in was he not knocked out to begin with? I will not know that. So that is the second trumpet when it is blown. It will bring everything back to life it will bring everything back to life. That about her Radhika kulu Yama is Elijah. And on that day, the hearts will be extremely nervous. So if you look inside the Koran, Allah subhanaw taala uses various words for fear. So Allah subhanho wa Taala will use the word health and who should and Cassia and one of the words that I know that he uses is a watch. Now
what's the difference between all of these in fact if you look inside the Quran, there is approximately 10 different words that Allah subhana wa tada uses for fear. So let's talk about the first
First, when we talk about health, what is this health actually mean? Health is when you're physically afraid of something. So if you're ever walking in the park and you see like this big black dog, and all of a sudden it starts chasing you. That type of fear you feel at that time, this is called, this is a physical fear that you're afraid that something physically will happen, something physically will happen. The number two is Russia. And this has no iron in it, not to be confused with Russia or Russia. So Russia without the iron, this is a fear that comes about from knowledge. So the more knowledgeable a person becomes, then the more fear they will have of Allah
subhanaw taala and this is why I know Danny tells us in the Koran, that the most fearful of Allah subhanaw taala are this the one the knowledgeable slaves in the my extra luminary,
that the people that fear Allah subhanaw taala the most, or the scholars of Allah subhanho wa Taala they have the greatest amount of passion. And this is fear that comes about due to having knowledge, knowledge of the Hellfire knowledge of the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala knowledge of the control that almost no data has. So the more knowledge a person has, the more harsher he should have. And this is why when the last final data talks about the Quran being revealed on top of the mountains, this is the type of fear that the knowledge the utmost formal knowledge is the Quran. And if it was placed upon the mountains, it would completely destroy it, then who should with an iron at
the end? What does this actually mean. And this is the type of fear that we're meant to have in the salon. This is the type of fear that we're meant to have in the salon. And this is the fear that strikes you so badly that it puts you to a standstill that you are unable to do anything. And that is why this is the fear that is recommended in Salah it is for sure that you're so concentrated on the fear of Allah subhana wa tada on the fear that Allah will not accept your deeds on the fear that you know, Allah subhanaw taala could give you a bad ending, that it brings you to a standstill inside of your Salah. And that is why you should not be having unnecessary movements, you do not
have anything distracting you because this is the fear that is required inside of your salon. Now let's move on to the last one, this one that is relevant to this verse over here. And that is when Allah subhanaw taala says kulu Yama, if you modify that hearts on that day, they will have watch and watch is I want you to think about a time where perhaps you went on a roller coaster who's been on a roller coaster here.
When you've been on a roller coaster, particularly like a really big one, that anticipation that's building up to the roller coaster, your heart starts shaking really, really fast and starts pumping blood. And you know, you just feel really, really anxious and perhaps overexcited. But what I'm referring to particularly is the pumping of the heart, you know when you can hear your heartbeat from inside of your chest. That is how you know petrified you get at a certain time. That is what was the face that on that day people will be so scared of the events of the day of judgment, that they'll be able to feel your own heartbeat, that right now everyone's heart is beating, you're alive
because your heart is beating. But you don't actually feel the heart beating, right you can actually feel your heart beating, you're not conscious of it. It is something that's happening automatically. But on that day, the palpitations will be so great that you'll actually be able to feel your own heartbeat, you'll be able to know how many times is beating per minute and on that day, perhaps even for a second, you know, multiple heartbeats per second. That is how great the event will be on that day. Abba Sato Hi, Harsha, that on that day, even the eyes will have for sure, there will be so still there will be so tranquil, that they're not even going to be looking around. And you look at
the hadith of Isola de la Anna, when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says that on the Day of Judgment, people will come in their natural forms naked without any shoes on. And I showed the other one and she shows the modesty that she has, she says all messenger of Allah, you know, aren't the men going to be looking at the women and vice versa. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that an umbrella shadow means that the affair is greater than that mean that what's happening on that day is so great that the eyes will not have time to fixate on anything else. But rather they will be fixated on the ground, that they're completely focused on the ground,
they're not going to look at anything else, because it's so anxious. And this is something to think about. That when you become anxious. When you're thinking that fixation that you get, that is the fixation that Allah subhanaw taala is talking about that on that day. Each soul is so petrified and anxious that their eyes they get fixed onto the floor and that is what they will be looking at your colonna in order to do nothing. And they say, shall we indeed be returned to our former state of life?
So now that the swords have been brought back, they're actually in a state of confusion, like a lot of the swords unless they didn't the vertical, the swords that didn't believe in the Day of Judgment, they're in a state of confusion, meaning that what is happening right now what is what is going to happen? Are we going to be returned back to our former life? Are we going to go back to the life that we used to have? Because they're unconscious of the Day of Judgment? So they start questioning themselves, because they don't know what is happening. And this goes back to the Torah, that Allah subhanaw taala he tells us, I'm not here to say alone, that what are the people asking
one another? This is what the disbelievers are going to be asking one another, that you know, what is happening right now? Why are we here? Are we being prepared to go back to our previous lives where we had fun and enjoyed or water? Why is this actually happening? in that environment, Nikita, that even after our bones have been crumbled? And you know, they were absolutely nothing. And then we were brought back to life, that why is this happening do go back to our previous lives.
And then it will be said called lutukka, even karate on hasura, that it would in that case be returned with loss. So the fact that they are thinking like this is the utmost form of loss, that they don't understand the greatness of the affair that is happening on that day, the day of judgment, and their petty minds are just going back to the life that they knew. But they're not anticipating the greatness of the life that is to come. Whether it be the life of the Hellfire for the disbelievers or the life of paradise for the believers. They know he has a job to watch. But it is only a single Zahra and serger. Over here. It refers to an extremely loud noise. And I was trying
to think of an example, what is something that makes an extremely petrifying noise. And I couldn't really think of anything except this one bird that it came across, in South Africa. And what happened was, it's fudger time, and all of a sudden, you start hearing like a piercing sound. The thing that I could compare it to is, I want you to think about if you've ever been in a classroom, and there's a blackboard, and someone was like long metal nails, they start scratching the board slowly. That sound that it starts to make how piercing that is, I want you to multiply that by like five. And then add to that, like the screech of like a five year old girl's voice when she shouts
really, really loud, you put that together. And that is what the Zenyatta is. And here are Allah subhanaw taala saying that he has a JIRA to wahida, it is referring to the trumpet that killed them, meaning that once they've been brought back to life, now, they're not going to die after this, there's going to be nothing to kill them. So if he has a JIRA to why he does that it is only one single trumpet blow is referring to that after this point, there is no more depth, there is no more depth, and that is how piercing, the trumpet blow is going to be
played at home this era for either home besides era, and when behold they find themselves on the surface of the earth. So meaning that they were underground, the ones that were dead, and they were brought out of their graves, because the earth had expelled them. So now they find themselves on the surface of the earth. So this is the precursor that Allah subhanaw taala gives to the Day of Judgment. So this is the second portion or the second subject matter of the sutra, which is the day of judgment. And now Allah subhanho wa Taala moves on to the story of musante setup. So let's find out Allah goes on to say how attacca Hadith tomasa that has the story of Musa alayhis salaam come to
you. Now why does Allah subhanho wa Taala mention Musashi Salaam over here, that is what we want to figure out. So that's number one. Number two, is the significance of the story of mortality. So now that if you look inside the Koran, the story that is mentioned the most throughout the Quran is the story of Musa alayhis salaam. So you'll find it in sort of Bukhara you'll find it in Surah are off into la casa su la ambia, you know, insulin as the art. And so for her, it's mentioned throughout the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala. He mentioned the story of Musa in different segments in different parts, and sometimes what looks like repetition, for the sake of deriving lessons, and for the sake
of understanding how important this sutra is. Now, what is the major theme that you would find inside the story of Musa lisanna? Can anyone tell me the story of Musa Islam? What is the major theme of the drive? One major theme? What is that major theme? Go ahead.
not submitting. Okay, you're halfway there. So fill out not submitting. That's halfway there. Go ahead.
The patients are mostly solemn. That's a quarter of the way there so now we have three quarters of the story. What's the last quarter of the story?
That's sort of what he was mentioning the patience. What is this main theme inside the story of masala Sana, go ahead.
What is the major event that happened in the story of Musa what is the major event that happened?
The major event what was the major event?
the splitting of the scene? Now what happened when that si came back together? Who did it kill? It killed your own? And what did the signify it signified that the truth will always be victorious. And falsity will always be destroyed, that no matter how powerful that falsehood may be, that falsehood will always be destroyed. And that is the theme inside the story of Mr. Lisa, that yes, there are other subsections to it, but the victory of the truth and the destruction of falsehood is the major theme. And that is what the parting of the sea and it's coming back together, you know, manifested, that the truth will always become victorious, and falsehood will always become destroyed. Regardless
of how weak the truth may seem, and how powerful the false hood may be, it will eventually come to an end. So that is the major theme that Allah subhana wa, tada keeps drawing our attention to. Now the reason why it keeps bringing keeps love brings it back to our attention is to understand this concept, that as a practicing Muslim, you're always going to be a minority, you're always going to be in a state of weakness. And you have to understand that yes, while you may be in a state of weakness right now, the ultimate victory will be for the truth. So you need to hold on you need to hold on to that truth. So here let's find out Allah goes on to say hi attacker had a samosa that has
the story of Musa come to you. And as this is a Moroccan surah This is one of the early stages of the story of Musa alayhis salaam being revealed one of the very first times I was finally I was giving an introduction to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the story of Moses and he said, and if not that horrible, horrible why the mocha, mocha support, that when he his Lord called him to the sacred valley of poor, so Allah subhanaw taala summons masala Salaam to this valley where he will be given revelation. And Allah subhana wa tada in this revelation. What does he tell him is Herbalife your honor in the hotaka that go too far out, because fear has transgressed all
boundaries. So here we learn a very important lesson that from the rights and responsibilities of the prophets and messengers was to confront the opposers of truth and the transgressors. So while Miss Allison was sent to guide his people to righteousness as well, he was also sent to confront false sword. So part of our responsibility is to confront the federal rounds of our time. So the Federal Reserve our time and our particular situation, I believe it starts with ourselves that, you know, the biggest problem is we have the all within ourselves first, and after we can discover you know, salvage our own internal states, then we can deal with the external states. So it starts with
dealing with the Faroe Islands inside of ourselves. You're getting ready of the jealousy, getting rid of the hatred, getting rid of the animosity, getting rid of the, you know, the desire for evil, all of these things, once we can cope with them, then we can go on to dealing with the external surrounds that are out there, you know, emulating the ways of the prophets, so called halakhah illa, Anta zakka that say to him, would you like to purify yourself from sin and disbelief? And this teaches us an important lesson that when Musa alayhis salam was sent to around it wasn't with like, Hey, I heard you're on copper You know, I'm going to take you out and wasn't with this, you know,
vulgar, terrible state of, you know, just trying to destroy around, but rather the way most of a sudden was sent. He was sent in the most gentle of ways, right Allah subhanaw taala tells him that say to him a gentle word say to him a very gentle word, perhaps that he may be reminded and fear Allah subhana wa tada Dhaka in Arabic Etosha, so that perhaps I may guide you, and that you may fear Allah subhanho wa Taala Lara who is ill Cobra, and then Moosa showed him the great signs. And this goes back to the story of, you know, the signs that were sent to Musa alayhis salaam, from you know, the sending of the frogs, the sending of the locusts, all of these signs, the presence of the blood,
and then eventually the story of the magician's. All these happening in front of her out, yet fear around is still turned away. for Canada Bahasa that fell out, he denied all of these miracles, and he continued to disobey Allah subhanaw taala. And this was like, from the greatest forms of disobedience, that it is said that there was no one more arrogant than fair and so arrogant, so much so that even when Firaon was born, he was born in the state of disbelief and the womb of his mother. That is what is mentioned. So I mentioned this as a hadith. So I mentioned this as the statement of the predecessors, but that is how much arrogance he has, that even though all of these signs were
sent to him, he still wanted to proclaim to the people and our bakuman Allah that I am your Lord. The most
Just to control you know the minds of the people and to subjugate them to slavery from the bottle, yes, sir. And then he turned his back to the command of Allah subhanaw taala and strived hard in that direction. So once the truth came to him, not only did he rejected, but he turned his back to it, and he strived hard in the opposite direction. So this is like when you're giving someone directions, you're telling them like, you know, go right, and then go to the light. And this person's like, you know what I'm going left, and I'm going to go the opposite direction. Except this is a matter of guidance, not just directions of getting to a location, it's about a matter of
guidance that most Allison came and gave him guidance. Yet not only did he reject the guidance, as I call us, I'm going in my own direction. And I'm going to strive really hard in that for her shadow of another, that he gathered all the people and the people and he cried in the loudest of you know, voices for color, another book woman, other than either I am your Lord, the Most Thai. Now think to myself, Subhana, Allah, how deluded a person has to be. They claim this to the people that this person he eats, he drinks, he sleeps, he goes to the bathroom. Then on top of that he has the audacity to claim another book woman, Allah, that just because he's been able to subjugate his
people to fear and they obey His every command, the arrogance has gotten to his head, that he actually believes he is the Lord the most time, just because he tells someone go kill this person, and they'll kill him keep this person alive, and to keep them alive. This is what caused him to become so arrogant, that he had these people that became slaves to him and subjugated themselves to him. And this caused him to be completely diluted further along in the Canon archaeology when Allah so Allah subhanho wa Taala seized him with a punishment for his last and first transgressions. So all the transgressions that he had committed the first of them and the last of them, Allah subhanaw
taala gave him one of the most severe punishments, and that punishment is actually divided into two. Number one is during his lifetime. So during his lifetime, when he actually passes away, he's humiliated, that while He is the Most High, and the Lord of the worlds so he claims, it is the river that actually visited the sea that actually kills them isn't a human being is just water, and some kind of law how gentle water is, you know, we bathe ourselves in it. Yeah, this is what killed for this gentle creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala completely annihilated him. So that was the first sense of humiliation that he was killed through water, something so easy, and so gentle. And then
the second form of humiliation is that he was made an ayah for the rest of mankind till the Day of Judgment, that the state of the oppressors, this is what's going to be, and that is why the, you know, the, Allah knows best in the authenticity of this, but they claim to have found the body of their own. And you know, it's still perfectly preserved in that mummy like state. And Allah subhanaw taala says that you will be made an idea till the Day of Judgment, that this is the end of all of the oppressors in history, you'll notice that there's never been an oppressor, except that Allah subhanaw taala gave them a humiliating ending, he gave them a humiliating ending, and he that he
collaboratively Moksha and indeed in that are Signs for people who fear Allah subhanho wa Taala, who for people who fear Allah subhanho wa Taala. So here, let's find out what data is telling us that the end of transgression is this humiliating, ending. So this Koran is sent as a reminder not only to the disbelievers that if you continue to deny the sin, the signs of Allah subhanaw taala, you can possibly have the same ending of your own. And likewise to the Muslim, that if you become so arrogant, that you become delusional, you can possibly have the same ending of your own as well. So take lessons from this story. And this is why it's so important that when you read the Quran, it's
not just for the sake of, you know, zooming through it, or for the sake of merely just reading it, but it is for the sake of deriving lessons in the vatika that I brought in the manga. And to my shadow Hello, can I miss Emma banana? Are you more difficult to create? Or is the heaven that he constructed? So here let's find Oh, tada is addressing the correlation with our previous arguments, that while Nothing is more difficult, while nothing is difficult for Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah is using our own logic and telling us that what is more, you know, in our understanding what is more complicated the creation of the human being, or the creation of the heavens and the earth, and
obviously, the creation of the heavens and the earth is more complicated. So here for let's find out here, let's find out are they saying that when you recognize that Allah created the heavens and the earth, then will you not recognize that you need to submit yourself to the creators of the heavens and the earth and the creators of your own selves.
And almost Finally, talking about the heavens and the skies, here
says he raised its height and perfected it. And it's night. He covers with darkness. And it's for known he brings about. So he almost no doubt again is drawing our attention to the signs that all this final data created around us. And this is something we've been discussing in the previous sutras as well. And he goes on to say one or the other Delica the haha and after that he spread the earth. So how Allah subhanaw taala made the earth while it is round in shape, circular in shape. While we're on the earth, we don't actually feel that right we feel that the earth is flat and we're able to travel wherever we like. So let's why no data has expanded the earth for us. Walker jammin
hammer hammer, aha, and that from this very Earth, Allah subhanaw taala extracted the water. So when you dig down deep enough into the earth, water is extracted, and then through that water, Allah subhanaw taala creates pasture around it, while g Bella have Saha. And that he sent mountains or created mountains that are in their fixed fixed positions, Medan, comandi, Anamika. And all of these things are a provision for you and for your cattle. And this is something that's very important to understand that these things that are most handled are created around us. He created them to facilitate our lives on this earth, so that we can focus on our primary purpose, which is to worship
Allah subhanho wa Taala. So our primary purpose is to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah subhanaw taala facilitates that for us by facilitating all of these things, that allows the water to come up, the water is there in the wells, the water comes down from the skies, the grass grows by itself, the animals look after themselves and take care of take care of themselves, so that mankind can busy themselves in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And all this is enjoyment for us. And for the animals that Allah subhanho wa Taala set. Now let's find what Allah concludes the suta again, by bringing our attention back to the Day of Judgment. So you'll notice that Allah subhanaw
taala, he changes the subject matter to keep our attention. And now the our attention is being brought back to the Day of Judgment for either at the former total Cobra. But when there comes the greatest catastrophe, and our greatest catastrophe is the beginning of the day of judgment, where every person will see the sins that they committed, and the good deeds that they neglected you only at the Dakotas in Santa Massa, and on that day, each and every person shall remember what they lived their lives for. So in this life, we can you know, sometimes delude ourselves that you know, I'm living my life for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But on that day, the reality will strike us
that did we really live our lives for the sake of Allah? subhanaw taala? Or was it merely just for enjoyment and play? Or was it merely just for enjoyment and play? Well, boy, is it lg haimo Lima era, and the Hellfire shall be made apparent, in full view for everyone to see. So there's not a single creation of Allah, except that they will view the Hellfire on that day from the human beings. That was fine. We'll make it a period. And that will just increase the fear. Because none of us will know at that time. That is my destination that Hellfire or is my destination to paradise, because we won't know has accepted our deeds, has Allah subhanaw taala had mercy upon us and enter this into
paradise or not. For a moment of that, as for the one that transgresses what are the highest adonia and preferred the life of this world for nlj mahila then his final abode will be the abode of the hellfire. So here on this panel with Allah He gives us like a simple equation, that if you transgress the boundaries of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and you prefer the life of this world, then that is automatically going to equal to the Hellfire, like there's no ifs, ands, or buts, you know about that equation? And this is an important question to ask ourselves, that while we have this desire to live in this dunya, to you know, strive for money to strive for houses and cars, to
strive for bigger families, we have to make sure it doesn't get to the degree where we were completely neglectful of our Acura, we need to have principles in how we strive for these things. And they should come secondary after our worship, they should come secondary after our worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is like from the biggest reminders to myself and to everyone here that, you know, this is something to think about. That one that day of judgment comes, there's no going back. There's no going back. No, just like, when a minute of your life passes away in this life, there's nothing you can do to take it back. Similarly, on that day, everyone will wish that
they came back to this life, just to be able to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala some more just to be able to do some righteous deeds, just to be able to do something to incur the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So here, let's find out what data he reveals this sort of very early on in the McCain stage, so that the believers from that time, till the Day of Judgment are cognitive or cognitive of this fact, that when the day of judgment comes
There's nothing that you can do to increase the good deeds at that time. And this is why a lot of the A lot of it was reported in Al Bukhari.
He says that this life has children and the next life has children, so be children of the hereafter. And don't be children of this world, where indeed today, there's action without accountability. And tomorrow, there's accountability without any action. So meaning take advantage of the life that you have right now. Then Allah subhanaw taala goes on to tell us about the exact opposite. One and half Mr. camara be 100 apps and in our final agenda, that is who the one who fears the station of Allah subhanaw taala, the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he prevents himself from the things that he desires, then paradise shall be his abode. Now let's understand this verse of this proper
light, preventing themselves from desires. What does this mean? Does this mean we're supposed to become monks that we live inside of the mustard? We only eat, you know, every second day? We don't get married. We don't have children. No, that's not what the verse is referring to at all. But rather, what the verse is referring to is that everything needs to be done in moderation, whether it is eating, whether it is sleeping, whether it is even marital relations, that even that needs to be done in a state of moderation, and you don't transgress the boundaries that Allah Subhana Allah created. And as long as you do that, then Allah created an other equation that this will equate your
entering paradise, be in the law he tada in the janitor, he'll malwa and we pray that Allah subhanaw taala mixes from this category of people. Then Allah subhanaw taala goes on and the sutra concludes shortly hereafter, yes, alone again. Is it a anamosa? That they asked your Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when will the appointed time be when will the appointed time be? And here less? data shows us about the fallacious nature of our intellect and our logic, rather than focusing on what deeds have I prepared for the day of judgment? We're more fixated on one is the day of judgment. So perhaps I can repent just before that time. And this is what we see that when the man
came to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked him on messenger of Allah, when is the day of judgment? The boss doesn't flip the question around. And he said, rather than asking that, what have you prepared for that today? What have you prepared for that day, so that is should be our focus rather than when is the day of judgment Thema and means that you have no knowledge to say anything about it. And here, Allah Subhana Allah is telling us that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, he doesn't have complete knowledge, meaning that he only has the knowledge that Allah gave him. He didn't have knowledge of the unseen, he didn't have knowledge of
the future. But rather, he had a limited amount of knowledge that Allah subhanaw taala gave him which is obviously more than us, but not to the degree of Allah subhanho wa Taala himself, in order to become unto her, that it is only to Allah subhanho wa Taala, that has ultimate knowledge of the unseen, and particularly of when the Day of Judgment shall be in them, and among the aroma yaksha and you owe Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are indeed only a wonder of the Day of Judgment for those who fear it, so that the people will have fear of the Day of Judgment, you just warning the people so that they will have fear of the Day of Judgment. And this is like a constant reminder
that, you know, when you think of the Day of Judgment, or even if you get to that stage where you can think of the Day of Judgment, it's meant to strike fear into your heart and try to change your ways. Can the homeo morona Hi, Danielle batho, Ella, she attend out to haha. And that day when they see it, it will be as if they had not been in this world, except for, you know, an afternoon or morning. And that is, you know, the ultimate reality that you ask anyone that is of any age, perhaps maybe with the exception of Ibrahim here that, you know, how quick has your life been? And everyone will say that, you know, I've turned 30 overnight or I turned 40 overnight, that life goes by in a
blink of an eye. And it's even more so on the day of judgments panela that you think to yourself, I had 6070 years on this life? What did I achieve when it's panela? And this is something that again, you know, as I mentioned in my reminder last night, that this is something we need to think about that how have you spent the last five or 10 years of your life? have you achieved the goals you wanted to achieve? Think about the life that Allah has given us, you know, what is your aim in this life? What do you want to achieve in terms of actual obedience, you know, building an orphanage, building a world going for Hajj memorizing the Quran, being in the service of your parents being in
the service of humanity, donating blood, in all of these acts, all these good deeds, they should be on the checklist and then throughout our lives. We want to try to fill these off, so that on the Day of Judgment, we have something to present to Allah subhanho wa Taala because on that day, we'll look back at the 6070 years, and everyone just feels regret and everyone will feel that life went by too quickly at that time, life by way too quickly. So Allah subhanho wa Taala sends the suit
down as the ultimate reminder, that before you feel, you know regret on that day for life going by too quickly, take account of yourself in this dunya. So now let's tie everything together in the sutra, the concept of the Day of Judgment, the story of, you know, most Seinfeld around and the extraction of the soul, it all comes down to a person, being conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And always find that ultimate in science in the middle of the sort of that was the fourth thing that had forgotten earlier on. So the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the day of judgment, the story of Moses and fell out, and the extraction of the soul. Here, let's handle data since all of these
things as various types of us. So the extraction of the sources for the belief of the angels, and how the angels monitor everything that we do and record it, then the story of more signs around that Which side are you on? Are you on the side of righteousness and goodness, even though you may be weak? Or are you on the side of false hood, which makes us even stronger, which may seem more appealing, but at the end, it will always have a terrible ending. The signs that Allah subhanaw taala sent you are you thankful to Allah subhanaw taala for those signs, do those signs bring you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and then Allah subhanaw taala concludes with the Day of Judgment,
because if you weren't cognitive of those things in this dunya you definitely will be in the hereafter. But at that time, there's no way you can do any action, so it won't make a difference. And this is the true sign of you know, knowledge is that knowledge always leads to action. And that's what differentiates from information that a person can have information about the Quran, have information about the Sunnah have information about a wide variety of things, but until you act upon it until it brings fear in your heart of Allah subhanho wa Taala it is absolutely useless and futile and is in fact, a proof against you. And we pray that Allah subhanaw taala makes this course under
proof for us and not against us and makes us of those individuals that when they hear good speech, they act upon the best of it will allow you to Allah Allah wa salam o cinema vertical in the Vienna Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam will take three questions with the lights Allah and we will call it a night.
Or has it been a long night already?
It seems like it's been a long night for a lot of people. Go ahead.
Fantastic. So this comes down to two matters. So I'll repeat the question for the people that are listening online. What can a person do to become more steadfast in their faith? And this comes down to two concepts. Number one is knowledge and action, just like we were mentioning over here, in terms of knowledge, a person needs to understand that two things as well. Number one, that he needs to focus on his priorities, in terms of there's no point on focusing on giving sadaqa if you're not praying your five daily prayers, right, so focus on those things that allow me to obligatory and that will establish the relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then after you establish that
relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala, you take it further by the extra righteous deeds. The second aspect of knowledge that we need to realize is that Allah has given us a simple equation, that the more good deeds you do after you've established the fundamentals, the higher your Eman will go, and more bad deeds you do the law, your demand will go till the degree that it will no longer exist. So once a person abandons the compulsory deeds in mind is non existent at that time. So that's like a simple equation, then you will, the way you increase on that is you want to figure out, you know, what are the best of deeds that a person can do, and try to focus on that. So there's
simple simple things that a person can earn so much reward for that, you know, the the the dollar that is said, when a person enters the marketplace, the partial sum total is that what that Hadith, that they have a million good deeds written for them, and a million bad deeds written away, the individual that wakes up on Juma takes a shower encourages family to take a shower, and he walks to the machine and he doesn't write for each step that he takes, he gets the reward of a day of fasting and the night of praying, you know, all these things that the more you increase your self knowledge, the more opportunity you have to earn these good deeds. You know, one of my personal favorites is
the same simple statement of Subhan Allah, He will be humble, he added a culpa, he laughs He was in a dashiki when we did the Kalamata, this almost seems like it's a cheat. Like, if you understand the wording of this, da, you're saying, oh, Allah, you know, glory and praise is due to you, according to the number of creations there are. So it's as if you're saying, you know, Subhana, Allah times the number of creation, which is almost like infinity Subhanallah how many atoms are inside of our bodies? Right? So it's almost like a cheat. So just saying this, you know, three times in the morning, three times in the evening, Allah created all these opportunities to go do good deeds. But
the last thing I mentioned is, is the karma. It comes with struggle and sacrifice. If you're comfortable in the state that you're in your mind is meant to permit that a man is meant to be struggle for your mentor, take it to the next level. And unless you take it, you're trying to take it to the next level, it is feared that it will decline at that time. Allah who Tanana
Any last questions?
there's different terminology. So the Say hi is referring to the strength of it, whereas the Zagat is referring to the sound of it will not huhtala her will conclude with that particular modem nikka Chateau La La Land, a stock felucca or a tube a lake.
