And hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah say the MBI even more serene Wa La he was happy to send me some that he Medina. Allah Medina Minh home wamena livina Amano Mohammed Ali hottie whatever so we'll happy whatever sub sub i mean, Allah means a mom and dad once again, sir Mr. De La Habra, CA two
two things that are left out from the discussion on the first is a bit smaller because Allah
The first one, let's see, the smear topic was a clerk at Yahoo and Tesco who lower into harsher on more of the moon politically, he mataman
basic meaning of that being
be cognizant of the perfection of the name of your Lord, that when you mentioned him, you are not found dimensioning him except that you are fearful that you are acknowledging his granddaughter, and when you do mention him it is in a respectful fashion. So it is the attitude with which you remember the name of your Lord. It's not just to mention the vicar itself. But it's the attitude with which you have that Vicar that is highlighted by not mentioning but next to somebody has Malbec. Instead of that Allah did not say sub bismi Arabic okay. The second is that Allah should only be named because the word Islam is used as smart arbic a smart and let the Alamin Allah though the names that
Allah himself has taught us, that Allah should be remembered by names that he himself has taught us now for educational purposes. Sometimes I use the word God because the nine non Muslim might be listening etc. But the educational process is we make the word Allah common knowledge. We make the word rub common knowledge. These are the names Allah azza wa jal himself taught us and they have a beauty in them and a blessing in them. And a an elevation to them, you know, unknowability to them that Allah himself has given, so we should choose those names to call on Allah, the ones that he himself, chose. So Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah man, a young fella has a smell Hostnet
call him call him Allah, call him or man whatever you may call him know that the best names belong to him and those are the best names that he himself taught.
Now we come to the next ayah Allah The holla Kaka holla call rather, the one who created remember in the previous solo, like we said before, creation was mentioned but the creation specifically of the human being for Jamboree in Sano mahalo. That was mentioned in the previous order and it was mentioned in the passive form, what was he created from the maharlika? here Allah mentions the active form because it begins with the name, so it should be active now the name should be known, the Lord should be known, the one who created so the first thing we learned about Allah azza wa jal, here is his lordship, or boo.
So Rebecca, and then the the first thing about taarab, you should know is that he created most of humanity and this is a discourse that will come in other passages in the Quran, acknowledge a divine being that created, but refuse to accept that he is their Lord, they have no problem accepting the fact that that someone created them a higher power, they'll call it or whatever else, right? But they will refuse to make that leap that they are enslaved to that higher power and they owe that power anything and that power has any rights over them. Allah mentioned the name that has that establishes his rights over us first submit his model big first and Allah and then under the halaqa
that the one who created so his creative power is mentioned second, now also your your Rob, he is unlike any other rub like I told you a show Kenny mentions there's no other Rob like he, why not? No other Lord, no other master has the power to create. All of their masters have to do at the most they have the power to own. They have the power to exert control, but they're not the ones who created anything. Okay? So were they created out of nothing? Or were they themselves created all other masters besides a law are themselves created, so what to speak of them creating anything on their own, but this Lord is unique, and the Kanaka Not only did he create for Sawa. Then after he
created, he perfected he fashioned, he perfected and molded, so that we are literally means to balance and even out. So every creation has been intricately evened out, which was the last thing we talked about before the break. Now another two attributes in verbal form of that same Rob of rugby can add to other things that he does, but you know, the beginning of the year as well. A lot of so it's argued that this is not on allottee before but it's actually if it isn't out of validity before that it's connected still to the first I said
has become the halaqa for Sawa at the same time suddenly his model because Allah Allah de cada Rafa Haddad, it's connected to the first idea, the second idea and also the third eye in the same way. So declare and acknowledge the perfection of the name of your Lord Supreme, the one who now does two other things God data, the word Katara is to calculate something and to plan for something and to thoroughly estimate or even think estimates, not a good word, because estimate has the implication of taking a guess. Right. But this is really to have an exact plan of action for something, and to have precise calculation at hand and ready, kind of like what we have, for example, when someone
engages in a project of architecture, right, they have to plan how wide how deep, what kind of materials, how long the planks, what material, you know, all of these things have to come into play when they're doing this kind of plan. Now, one who doesn't know what they're doing, they can do guesswork, but the one who has an important project before them they have to do precise planning, we learned in a few ahaadeeth that the planning all of the tech deal of the entire creation of the heavens and the earth precedes the actual creation 50,000 years that a lot of wizard has already planned all of this before it was executed and you know, now in human effort we know the more you
plan for something and then you do it the better it comes out. When something is done without planning it doesn't come out that good when something is done with a lot of planning it comes out better right? So you what you see is the final product but you don't see is all the planning that came before Allah says and then the Katara the previous I was about creating this is about planning and executing and calculating every last minor detail. Fahad then thereafter he guided it now what what is this guidance mean here? A few things but before we go to the guidance, actually look at let's look at some classical texts that explain this first part of the ayah Allah de Katara to plan
something well in advance he says, like, for example, in Rouhani, we find that Lucy writes, I o caradoc de la houfy a Shia? What an unwary Whoa, ha see how makadi How was it? How was it? How was
it? How was it that equina? Holly What this means is a lot planned everything out everything out? in its exact nature, what it's going to be like, what its what its implications are going to be? What are the consequences of this creation going to be? What are the things it's going to be doing? When is it going to come into existence? When is it going to cease to exist? agile he has deadlines, when is it going to cease to exist and all matters of their creation, meaning everything surrounding creating not just the creation itself, all of the activities, all of the properties of that creation. All of that was planned in advance that's uncovered in the words and that the Katara in
another place in Coronavirus says Wakanda I'm gonna lie here contra makura that the decision of Allah the matter of Allah has already been declared in precise calculation called the general Allahu liquidly Shankara Allah says that Allah has made a precise calculation for every single thing. Now the thing is specifically though this is general now Allah did not at a car like in the previous text we set and let the halaqa for so work for Adela car, the car was for the human being, Allah did not put an object here. So it refers to all creation and all calculation of all things, everything in creation. But more than anything else. The first thing that comes to mind of course is the human
being. Other things apply but also the human being and his creation and his planning. And of all of them which human being has been mentioned in this surah First, it is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said be his motto be the car referring to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If you understand this, when we come to the Iet, later on, you'll understand the connection between this and why I'm making mentioned specifically of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you see, Allah created everything, then he perfected everything that he planned for everything, but that plan is useless until you execute that plan, right. So
whatever that object is, for example, a person has been planned that he will, he will show up to work at this time. But until you tell that person to do the work, the plan is incomplete. So you have to tell that person what to do now to everything else is according to plan. That person now needs instruction or guidance. So let's have a look The Katara had, he planned it out, he created it perfectly. And then he guided also, what this implies in the case of the messenger sallallahu. wasallam is Allah created him in an intricate fashion. The best of the human beings has been created and it's been planned that he will live in this region, he will live for this many years. He will go
through these experiences, he will he will experience the sadness of being an orphan and being raised by other than his parents, and he will experience loss and difficulty in his life. And he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will finally experience coming into contact with a message with a with the angel. And when the angel comes to him, what does he say? Matt and I because I can't read. He told him to read and he said I can't read. But was it a less plan that he's gonna read? Yeah, it was always part of the plan. So Allah created him perfectly fashion and planned for that day. Though the messenger has no idea. This is part of the plan.
who still knows already? Allah azza wa jal knows. So it was part of the plan that Allah would guide him. Hahaha, that also applies here right so that the entire career of the messenger up until the revelation came to him is also captured in the words and then the chanukkah wa welder the Katara father, it applies to all of creation, of course, but primarily here in the context the Messenger of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, because in the beginning, we find his mentioned at the end a few hours later will again find his mention. Now unless switches from the general By the way, this guidance I should mention, how does it refer to in the general sense, you know, the the scholars comment he
diakonia what he diarrhoea that there are two kinds of guidance, there's the guidance of creation that will work for you and for example, the cow and the sheep and insects and birds and whatever else, and the sun and the moon etc. He created and planned all of them, and that he guided them to do whatever they are created to do. They perform the functions for which they were created for another scholar urashima Hola. Mufti, Mohammed shafia was commenting on this very eloquently on this ayah. And he said, you know, human beings, we go to school and college, or we go to some kind of training to learn certain kinds of skills. What training did the child get, when it came out of the
womb of its mother, that it knows exactly where to go for the milk? And what training? Did the mother get to produce the milk naturally? who create who guided the body to produce that milk? And who got it the child, you know, the baby a calf? Right? When the baby cow comes out? How does it know not to eat worms or anything else to eat grass? How does it know? How does it know these things? How does it know how to feed from the mother, it's been taught all of these things. This is part of the guidance or love plan, the mechanisms, he designed the food for the child in the chest of the mother, he designed it, he intricately designed it, he planned for it, and it came at the
right time. But then he guided the child to drink also right this is part of the diet of Allah in the sense of the the guidance of existence. This is why in Soto how we find our abouna Allah The Arthur kulesza, in Hong Kong from bajada. Our Lord is the one who gave everything his existence who granted everything rather its existence there after he guided it. Not only that he created, he guided it these creatures, they know what to do where to get their meals where to produce their homes. So for example, in the case of anomala, we find the end they know how to produce their home and where to get their list and what to do, Allah guided them Subhanahu wa Tada. Now Allah mentions
this creative process. One example of it, what are the genre. The next is the one who draws out extracts a collage, a collage to extract to pull out. And Mara Mara comes from Orion around the verb raw, which is to pasture or to graze, or the animals to feed. The law is for example, the the the shepherd, because he's taking care of the animals of pasture. That's why he's called are also the word model or means model, which is a lot of mechanics, a place is the place where there's a lot of greenery, the purpose of which is that animals will graze on it, it's perfectly suited for consumption of certain kinds of animals. So alleged referring to that as an example of is perfect
Lee calculated plan design, whether the Delmarva you know, in the previous solar Eliza, we just spoke about another kind of hemorrhage, unless has yaku membranous salby Ouattara in the previous Sora and you know, the, the the human being, his creation begins from that that fluid that starts between the solvent that I have, you remember that the bone in the back and then the rib cage, somewhere in between that large, you know, expanse, which seems like such limited space, but a lot turns it into a mystery in the previous sorta, there is the beginning of the creation of the human being. But here a lot draws life out of the earth, when the the,
you know, the word matter, once again, for grazing are the pastures that are perfect for grazing. And, you know, we know that animals don't just eat any kind of plant, they have to eat certain kinds to be able to survive, they can't digest any, just anything. So Allah designs, you know, you have, for example, children, you have to get food for them. Right, but who prepares the meals for the bird. And for these animals that are out to human living things, you have to take care of them, right, somebody has to provide for them shelter, somebody has to provide full food for them, and the kind of food that they can digest, who's been providing food for these these creatures since they
were created for 1000s and 1000s. And 1000s of years, Allah Xhosa, so he's showing you his intricate design without our planning. You know how long we think it takes us to plan to figure it out for our food, every bird leaves its nest in the morning, and Lola has a plan for it of where it's going to eat and how it's going to eat. So when the origin Mara, further Allah, Who within an hour about this, if there's a disagreement in the linguistics of the ayah, which plays a role in the interpretation of the surah. Later on, we'll all share both sides with you in sha Allah, the majority and also the minority. Then he made it and the word
In Arabic, or then he turned that pastor into or that that grazing field into water and the word was that comes from within, which literally means to be nauseous or to want to vomit a lot and why the, when the valley is filled with leaves or dung or waste other kinds of natural wastes than the Arab says latin word, it's a word from another sable moto moto rider. When the turret or like lots of water comes and draws pasture, all the grass gets, you know, torn off the ground and it gets piled up in one place. This is Luther. So in general meanings without is two things, either something that is put together, or compiled together. Like a lot of times, I mean, we don't really we're not in
touch with nature as much. But you may have had to clean your gutter, or you know, like the in homes and things like that where the all the water gets, the leaves get rotten and they get piled up together, and you have to clean that muck out. That's according to Arabic language, but generally also without means the piling up of any kinds of plans. So it may not be referring necessarily to rubbish or filth, which is an acceptable usage. It's also when plants are jumbled together or grow up in a cluster right next to each other. That's also with that. So there's the pastoring fields, there's the open fields that are spread out, but then without would be some parts of greenery that
are clustered together. Then the next word Aqua, the adjective, Aqua, is a superlative adjective, it's a followed of the and the word However, in Arabic the the verb, however, who means to bring, bring something bring two things together, which is complementing the word without, but also means of something to become red, or black, black and red at the same time. Okay, like very, very dark. And this is in two implications one when a kind of veggies, some kinds of vegetation, when they're fully fully mature, then they have this texture to them, which is green, or red or whatever. But it's overwhelmed by a blackness, that's when they really, really mature. But another is when they've
gone bad, then they turn black. Like if you leave some kind of fruit or any kind of vegetation out when you put it in your fridge or leave it out in the kitchen after a couple of weeks. What color does it turn into, but also that darkness is a sign of two things. One, it's a sign of maturity, the other it's a sign of going bad, right? It's a sign of two things. This is where the disagreement comes in a great number of earlimart consider this ayah talking about the vegetation that is so wonderful, then being reduced to rubbish, turning black turning into crushed and being piled together, basically trash on the earth. So on the one hand, it's life. On the other hand, it's
trash, right? So let's contrast in how he created how he destroys the same exact creation. A few weeks ago, it was Madeira. And now it is Hosea. And that's the contrast that he's showing. On the other hand, some are llama comment that no, this is actually showing you the majority of those plants, how they are bunched together and how they reach maturity and fruition. And why I said this impacts the rest of the solar is if this is talking about the best of the plantation and then the worst of it being destroyed, then it's a comparison of this life at the beginning of this life or the joys of this life and how soon they wither away the temporal nature, the transient nature of
this life, that's one parallel if this is talking about plants being in their early phases and then reaching mature phases, because we find afterwards and dimension of the messenger RNA sort of wasallam him not to worry that the Quran will be recited to Him and He will not forget, meaning it will reach maturity. Perhaps it's alluding to that passage will Lakota okay. So the very next is a nuclear Luca fella tenza we will make you read you know Cora in Arabic to recite Accra ukri Oh, this is different from Cora. This is a Cora if I can make someone read unless I soon we will make you read soon we will make you recite. This is part of the miracle of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam, what were the first things he said when the angel came to him? He said Nah, no, because I don't read. But Allah says I will make you read. Right. So no Carioca, so this ability will not be your own, it will have been given to you from Allah will as soon we will make you read. Now the thing is, what this is referring to then is the soldiers that are coming, because it says sign the beginning, which means soon it's alluding to the future. Why is he talking about the future, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is concerned, he's concerned that he might forget Docker, and that is going to be revealed to him. And he's also concerned maybe he's been able to according to a
larger vision, he's been able to live up to the demands of revelation thus far, but there's no guarantee he'll be able to live up to those those demands. That mission that Allah is putting on him. How will he be able to live up to it? How will we be able to remember that overwhelming word, so he's concerned some additional, this concern by the way occurs in three places in the Koran This is a third of them. The first place we find Allah says when I am in complete alayka wahoo Baccarat visit near Alma, don't rush to the Quran before its revelation has been mandated for you. But before that time has come this isn't sort of law. Similarly, in certain kiama we find law to be Healy,
Santa Anita jalebi though
rush your tongue to acquire it quickly, because the messenger will be concerned sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I might forget the Quran. And understand we talked about this a few times before, but the messenger is very, very aware sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he is carrying in his heart, the message of salvation for the rest of humanity for all generations to come. This is not we talk about an important document, right? And he has this enormous sense of responsibility. One of the things that is nerve wracking to him Salallahu alaihe salam is, he might forget even a piece of it. And you know, when you're worried about, think of it from the point of view of a student, when you're
worried about one part of your studies, you start worrying about the other part. For example, if you're listening to a lecture from your professor, and you're writing everything down, right, when you worry too much about writing what starts happening, you're not paying close attention. So you wrote it down. But you look back and say what was I writing? I have no idea. Right? Because you focused on one thing you lost track of another thing, Allah azzawajal wants His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his focus not to be on memorizing, because that will distract him sallallahu Sallam from more important things that a lot deems more important. So Allah takes that concern away
from him. He says, sir, no Carioca, we will make you recite. We will make you recite, you know how the surah began and where it's turned to now. The sutra began declared the perfection. Right, acknowledge the perfection of your Lord. And many of the orlimar commenting on the language of this ayah say that when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam acknowledges, acknowledges the beauty and the perfection of a last names that in and of itself starts making his burden light, that source making his burden light. And when he reflects on the creation under the code, da da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, and everything has its time. Everything has been created,
everything has been thoroughly planned. Everything has been given precise calculation, and then it's been guided, you are no exception. So Allah Harada husana. Look at the pasture around you it's been created, it grows for a purpose and then it reaches its culmination. Just like that, you will also be given this revelation, you have nothing to worry about because this planning is not in your hands. It is in a lot of hands. So hands on with either so nuclear, aka we will make you read, we will make you recite Fila tensor, then you will not forget, then you will not forget so the messenger is concerned he will forget Allah says no, no, no, he's taking the responsibility that he
will not forget. And you see the Arabic language grammar is really important for students of Quran and of Deen in general. You know, Fela tenza if this was the Elif Nakamura was not there, that would have been fairly nice. He don't forget that it would have been forbidding the messenger from forgetting but it doesn't say fella tensa it says fella then sir like in other places, you could always find what a tensor short, but he just fed her What a 10 cent no see, but kameena dunia Don't forget your portion that you're responsible for Indonesia also. But here's a Latin PSA, which is a constellation if it was filed a tensor it would have been almost a concern for the messenger the
Allies saying Don't forget, so it's more of a burden on him. But alas giving him constellation saying you won't forget for that answer you will not forget. So Allah has taken that concern from his messenger sallallahu wasallam. And here now we find the is this is this will follow in the Masha Allah the exception except for what Allah has himself decided the word Sha and other I put off the discussion on the difference between the word Sha and another, but at least mushy I told you some things about before when we were discussing the ayah Natasha una in the English Allah it's concrete decision, if Allah has made a firm decision, what by using the word Sha, Allah has let us know that
even if the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forgets an ayah that is not something like a casual intention and you know when you and I make an intention, and I teach you something and I say no, no, no Forget it. Right That's like a casual I didn't think it through enough but has a law already established that everything is thoroughly planned out in this sort of the context already been explained? So when you come to the ayah Allah Masha Allah except for whatever Allah wills we will make your site and you won't forget except for whatever Allah, wills, Illa Masha Allah, what does that mean? First of all, because of the context we know that Allah will make forgotten what was
already had been planned to have been forgotten. This was part of the plan all along. It's not like you know, like these people who say inappropriate things about Allah azza wa jal. Oh, he decided to change it. He changed his mind about this or that or the other. No, but that would be inappropriate to say about a law and where did the surah begin? Don't say or think inappropriate things about Allah Subhana his model MC and Allah began with that point, and it's perfectly connected here now, because this is where a lot of people have a problem. They have a problem. What is this Nussle? Why did the messenger forget some of them? There's a few things here that we should comment about and
the benefits of NUS especially of this yen you know about about
This ayah most of the allama are in agreement that is not talking about an ayah being forgotten altogether. Some of them do have that opinion and some legit opinion that you know, Allah says man and suck me I mean, I attend our noon see her nothing behind him in hell Miss Leah, we don't, you know, cancel out or abrogate an ayah or make it forgotten except if you bring something better than it or just like it right? And better than it by by better than it means better suited for the people better for their guidance, what fits them better, what they need the most. Allah knows what we need the most. But for a certain time, there's a certain instruction, it doesn't apply for all times it
applies for that certain time. That alone reveals that if and when the IRS purpose has been fulfilled, what does he do? He lifts the IRA and he gets it removed from the memory of all the people this is one opinion about this, that Allah azza wa jal knows Allah Allah. Allah said, you know what he created, who he created, he knows us best. So if there's an IRA or some part of revelation that came, whose precise guidelines were necessary for that occasion, and then thereafter, keeping that Aya would have been caused for more harm than good allows OSHA does what? He removes it then this is how he created. The other thing here is there are two other benefits. The
second is it's been interpreted differently. It's been interpreted as a lot as Odell made his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sometimes forget called on in Salah, and the Sahaba would remind him is this ayah been cancelled out because you didn't recite it? And he said, No, I forgot. Right? So what does this illustrate? This illustrates that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam isn't the end a human being, who is beyond all imperfection, in all ways, shapes and form. It is Allah Subhan Allah, Allah because Allah, right Allah, you know, the Messenger of Allah is so high above us, but still nowhere near where? Allah so there's no comparison, right? Allah Buddha, Buddha,
Rob is always going to be Rob. So Allah establishes his perfection, and his control over his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we dare not say anything inappropriate about our messenger, I think he saw to a salon. But we need to understand that Allah is our Rob and also his son, Allah, Allah Himself, right? He's also his job. So he just like he gave you this gift, he will show you his power over this gift. It's not yours. It has been it's been given to you. He's the one who guided you to it. So he might make you forget, when this is part of actually part of the the, the Esma of the messenger sallallahu sallam, his innocence and his purity. Because you know, those who claim to
be pure of sin are free of sin. Like for example, there are some religions in which a certain priest or or certain kind of hierarchy, they're free of sin. So when we say about Our Messengers or something, he's free of sin, they say yeah, we have that too. What's the difference between their free of sin and our free of sin? The difference is they're free of sin is never they never get corrected. How do we know our messenger is free of fault is that if something human does happen from him who corrects him? Allah azza wa jal right that in itself is a guarantee that he's on the right path that Allah corrects him and we talked about this in the in the Ibis Allah tala. Right We talked
about that. And this is in itself a proof that he is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu send them in know who your animal Jeremiah is placed in the same ayah and this is actually very important, because when the subject is placed in the same ayah Allah says Leah de baru it so they reflect deeply into his ayat, right. So, an is one lesson almost you could say you could think of an ayah like one chapter, one study. So when this part is this text, which literally means certainly it is he who knows the obvious the scene the visible Jarrah, Maya and that which is hidden, or that which hides away, then since it's placed in the same as in Masha Allah except for what Allah wills meaning
the parts that you will forget that Allah wills it means the parts of recite Quran that are recited and that are in the Jetta he knows those and that which has been hidden, he knew about them all along also. Now the a few things about the language of this ayah
The first thing is the word Illa. The word in the NL SS not be manual killer, one of the meanings of this exception is is like minuscule. So if you will forget something those will be minuscule incidents and there'll be one or two things that will make you remember again, okay, then there may Doom In other words, it's not a permanent forgetfulness, it will come back to you. So this is don't let that overwhelm you into thinking you're going to forget those exceptional cases will happen and this is why we don't find 1000s of narrations of the messengers of Allah. Hi, Sam, for getting caught on how many do we find a handful? literally a handful. Now the put this in perspective, how
many I article honor being revealed how many suitors in the end of the Quran 114 and not all of them are complete all at once. bits and pieces of it out of different sources are coming and the messenger or the subtle, salaam knows which Ayah goes in which surah which goes in which surah which is in which surah and some sources take a dozen years to complete like sort of Baqarah take
Takes 12 years literally to complete. And in the meantime, all of what the new Corolla is being revealed. bakura is revealed in the beginning of the Medina and goes on until the end of Medina. And in the meantime, all of whether the Koran is revealed but the messenger knows where every Ayah goes from Allah hi Sara. So in that context, when you find one narration, that in itself is a miracle that you only find 123 10 not even 10 narrations on the messenger it is awesome for getting one I am Salah. right this is fulfillment of the ayah This is a fulfillment when he forgets that in itself is a fulfillment of the word of Allah when he says in Masha Allah so let's as it is he who knows in
know who your animal Now the word into who is really important here, if you say your animal Jeremiah is correct Arabic He knows the scene and what is hidden. But he says inner who your animal This is what's called an elevated fire. This is this is Joomla Izmir, it's a nominal structure, and the word he has mentioned twice in now, who the who is means he and the Yeah, and yeah, Adam also means he. So the English translation would yield. It is in fact he who knows. And by saying that what it implies is no one else. In other words, the messenger is told, in the end you are learning but who truly has the knowledge, who truly has it, it is in fact, a law as origin, his superiority even over
his slave Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is illustrated when he says he know who you are. And then he says algebra, one, Maya, whatever is seen jihad is an activity that you do that everybody can see. That's okay. For example, and by the way, the opposite of jihad is Civil War assume rucola calm, which harrowby, right? Make your make your word secret, or make them public so everybody can hear what you said, which will be similarly, law, you have a law whose job is suit mineral coal, in the Mongolian, Allah does not one, Allah does not like that you curse somebody or use bad words against somebody except if someone is wronged. But you use them out loud. You know, jihad is used there. But
now the opposite here is that in the huya animal Jarrod was Sarah. Right? He doesn't say that he says Mama, you're a different kind of wording is used, the opposite wasn't used. Now the benefit in doing this is the word happier in Arabic. It means to hide something so well, that you don't even know it exists. seal is a secret. But the guy who doesn't know the secret at least he knows there's a secret that exists. I don't know what what it is. But I know it exists. It's classified information. I don't have access to it. But at least I know it's there. When you say huffy, it is so secret that you don't even know it's there. So you're not missing anything. Why is that word
perfectly appropriate here. Because when the ayah is made forgotten from the messengers, a lot of the ones that are permanently made forgotten, Will anybody even feel that they were missing? Any human being even get the inclination that something was there, it seems to be missing nothing? Because well Now, the other thing here is that jihad is an Islam and jihad is an Islam it's a noun. What well now Yoga is a verb, it's a verb. So why would they use the nominal form the noun form for the manifest and the verbal form for that which is hidden. First of all, a verb is limited and a noun is unlimited in some sense, okay. So by limiting it, meaning the only few things will be made,
hidden. Only few things will be forgotten. That's one implication of it. It's lesser in degree, when my offer the other is nothing remains hidden forever. That Allah azza wa jal eventually will expose everything right now everything much is exposed, but Allah will expose everything eventually. So that the attribute of something remaining hidden is not going to last long. One Naya is in verbal form, because a verb doesn't last forever. It's temporary.
When we assume locally useless upon Allah, He will make and then Allah first he gives him this constellation, that he will not forget that you will not forget the Quran. Then he tells him you know, Allah, Masha Allah, Allahu Allah Muhammad one Yes, sir Luca, and we will make easy for you. In normal Arabic we use you say when you Yes, Cyril laka. You don't say No Yes, heruka. We say nasiru laka. You put a lamb there. I made easy for you. Even in English, you don't say I made easy. You You say I made easy for you. The word for is even their normal Arabic. A lot of took it away a lot took the lamb away. And this is actually a rhetorical function of Arabic. There are some prepositions. If
you mentioned them, it's obviously you are expecting them. But when you take them away, the meaning is still clear. The function of taking them away is to bring two words closer.
And the word and this is called the creep and when you put the preposition there, you're taking the words and you put them farther apart. Now when you take them farther apart in the language, in the rhetoric of Arabic, that means that this word demands to be farther away from that word, but when you bring them closer together, the concepts are closer meaning Allah has brought himself closer to his messenger out of love something Allahu alayhi wa sallam, when he says when we Asuka
As opposed to saying when we use zero lacquer, he's brought the dimension of the messenger so it's a lot closer to the verb that was used for him himself to fit into your signal. So this is part of the edges of the Quran the beauty of the Quran and part of the love it's an expression of the love. Allah shows His Messenger and his thought was set up. What's interesting about this if you look at when we Asuka we will make easy for you now what will he make easy for him now if I say for you to you, for example, I'll make something easy for you. You will think okay, the something was originally hard and now you're going to make it easy for me unless has one Yes, sir Luca Lil usara.
I will make easy for you to get eventually to the ultimate ease you saw is the superlative form and the feminine form of Acer like you know x and Hosni Akbar, Cobra, a ser Yusra, that's the feminine form of the the superlative, the product of lead. And so Allah tells him He will make the path easy, but the conclusion itself to get to that which is even easier to that which is the easiest. So what is this all of this mean? First of all, it means Allah has guaranteed in the partner yasutaka that the struggles of the messenger will be made miraculously easy for him by Allah's intervention, just like Allah will take a lot took that task of the Quran. Right? He took that task of the Quran which
the messenger thought was going to be difficult to remember what did he do for him? He'll make him recite, he won't forget. So he says, Well, yes, sir. nellcor analytic. We made it easy for remembrance. He responded to that problem. He took it away from the messenger sallallahu sallam. The second is his struggle in the world, the Dawa, he has to give the message he has to give to the people. How is he going to deliver this message? It's a tough thing. Allah azza wa jal guarantees Him He will make ease for him. When we look at the struggle of the messenger and his subtle Salaam, we see one of the probably the most difficult struggle ever waged in human history. But when you
look at this relationship between a lion His Messenger, what is Allah calling it easy, he's making it easy upon his law school. Salallahu alaihe salam, and this is putting tawakkol in the messenger Allah Azza wa sallam, that no matter how tough things get, what is he have to rely on? What is his anchor? What is his refuge when we Asuka
now look at the words that we use. In a hadith we find some of us who don't have put this place this hadith which is here, under this ayah as an explanation, where I still will honey fear to somehow the seller that I was sent with meaning the legacy of Abraham, Isaac, honey fear, sole dedication to Allah that has in it lots of relaxation, lots of allowance, and it's very easy. In other words, the Sharia of Islam, the regulations, you will be delivered, the commandments you will be given will not be difficult, they will be easy, but Allah didn't just say fun. Yes, you can. Yes, here he says yes, right easier. Meaning however you live life now. When you live by God our life doesn't get harder,
life gets easier. So hon Allah, Allah says you need to love and you have the Vancouver holy con in San Francisco to Nyssa he says Allah intends to lighten your burden. When a person starts following the arm of Allah, you know what they start feeling like? Life is getting harder, man this is how I'm that's how I'm gonna do this. Gotta do that. Right. They start feeling like life is getting harder. What is Allah saying, instead, Allah intends to make life lighter on you to meet to ease your burden, and the human being was created weak. The human being doesn't realize that which make life will make life easier, he thinks it will make life difficult, and this is part of the difficulty he
doesn't understand the wisdom in things. We may not understand the wisdom in this area, but it still might make life easy for us. So the messenger is told to Lala and himself that he will facilitate for him the ease. Joaquin El Mirage will use law attorney Katana t atellica Allah to aizawa as healthy heaven why number one? Well, I shall Can you mentioned that the meaning of use right here is the path by which the memorization of the revelation will become easier than it has ever been before joaquina here Sharia and hanifa Salah it's also been said that this is of the easier is referring to the Sharia the laws that will come that will make life easy and they will bring bring comfort to
people you know people when a large religion intends to guide someone woman usually the law and yeah do when a lion tends to guide someone Yasha sobre hulan Islam he opens his chest for Islam he the Islam means submission right? When you submit to Allah His commandments you will find relaxation and if you find relaxation that means Allah has intended for you that you should be guided. On the other hand if you are from the unfortunate who when they obey a law What do they feel? discomfort? Yeah, Sandra who
can help him you know, their chest becomes tight now my Assad officer man like he's climbing up into the sky. He's losing his breath that this is actually part of a curse or rich. Other levina allow me noon on those who don't believe so this this is part of the attitude we're supposed to have noticed this sooner. One of its core lessons is a change in attitude right?
From the very beginning, what attitude what is the attitude with which you remember a line how you think of Allah and how you respond to things that are said about Allah that was captured and suddenly his model began other than the attitude of the messenger his concerns being removed, then his attitude about the coming revelations he's thinking they're going to be difficult What does Allah tell him? They're going to be easy and the way to them is also easy when we acetylcholine useless vanilla, for the kids in decorah. How much time tillandsia By the way,
for you to know a comma, Tomahawk, okay. All right, for the cure for fire here is basically a conclusion. Therefore, then, after you've heard this, your concerns have been removed, the Quran will be given to you, you will not forget. And on top of that, your your apparent problems and your hidden he knows them. And on top of that, he will facilitate your way for you. Now that all of your distractions have been taken away, you need to get back to the task, the mission, what is the mission for the messenger so I sell them for that care. For the kid, this will come up again in the next quarter for the kid in NEMA and Tomodachi lasala hemocyte. But here for the kid, remind them
then remind, you know the word the kid, usually you you expect some sort of a an object after it that give me remind me, the kid who remind him, the kid a nurse remind the people, no objects has been mentioned. In other words, the messenger is told no matter where you are, no matter what situation you find yourself some Allahu alayhi salam just comes continuously engage in the act of reminding. This is your mission. This is the second commandment. This is the second imperative verb used in this surah. The first was submit submit his Marbella Anna, that was the first one, this is the second one for vecchia. And in these two, there is a summary of the entire life of the messenger
sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When he is not reminding the people what is he doing?
This we have Allah, either he's in standing in the middle of the night declaring his Lord's perfection in Salah, or in the daytime in Allah caffeine. Nadie subhanho wa Taala. Right, he's out in the daytime, delivering the reminder to the people the tough job that Allah has given him, both of them, both of them are here Subhana Allah now for the Cure, in fact, it decla in particular, this is a conditional statement is called an Arabic Joomla shell to
hear the meaning literally meet the literal meaning is then remind if reminder served to have benefit in fat in the claw, the word nothing is inferior in Molly's in the past tense in the cry, if it was in the present tense, then it would be maybe it'll have benefit in the fact of the crowd. It actually is a rhetorical statement, you know how you say to somebody, if you're a real man, you're gonna go.
Right? what you're trying to say is go it's a challenge to you. Right? Same way Allah says messengers, I saw them remind if reminder will have any benefit. Does the messenger already knows how to send that reminder will have benefit? Yeah, he knows he's been taught all along that he should be reminding what they're capable of any money or halfway remind with the Quran, whoever fears my promise. One implication of this is for sure remind, because certainly there is benefit in reminder, another implication of this is maybe reminder will have benefit, perhaps reminder will have benefit, who's the only one who knows if reminder has benefit or not? Only Allah and know who
yada yada, yada, he knows the obvious, he knows the unseen. When you try to remind someone and they repel what you said, I don't want to hear it. You don't know maybe it got stuck in their head and they processed it a month from then it happens sometimes. They don't listen to you right away, but they listen to you and they're gone. Maybe they didn't want you to know that they took effect from what you said, but it really affected them. Their ego wouldn't allow for them to show that they're actually listening, right. But when they were on their own, they listen so that the reminders still haven't ended up having benefit anyway. So the messenger is told for that good enough. I think this
is actually our attitude towards people. We don't judge people, we remind sometimes, you know, you're with your cousins with your family with your friends. Maybe I should remind them, maybe I should say something, maybe I should say something about the kind of language they're using. Maybe I should say something about how they're wasting their time. Maybe I should say something about whether or not they should be putting their eyes where they shouldn't be putting their eyes. Maybe I should remind them and you say now they're not gonna listen, they're not that religious. You know, they're not the type. They're not the machine type. So I shouldn't probably remind them, right?
It'll probably sour our relationship. Allah says regardless, don't think in your head who you should be reminding and who you shouldn't be reminding, because Allah has not given you the license to see what's inside anybody's heart. And this reminder can benefit anyone, anyone, so much so that as hopeless as the case of Fatone is. Does he still does he still get sent a reminder, Allah still sends him a reminder email.
though is that our own, the guy's a genocidal maniac. But still no, no judgment is passed on him until he makes the decision himself. So anyway, for that kid in Nevada declared, the word vichara is an interesting noun in the Arabic language. It is argued that it comes from the carajas Guru, the Quran, or the Quran, that it's the hyperbolized or the mobila form of the powerful reminder then, that the powerful reminder will benefit. In other words, when you deliver a reminder, it should be powerful, it shouldn't be weak, you should find good words, you should find strong words, you should find words that will appeal to that particular audience. So you should be careful in how you deliver
a reminder to people this is one thing, but the other thing linguistically according to the salon, the word liquor is interesting because it it could be it could serve as an alternative muscle for three words, the camera, the camera, and the camera, which is very powerful. Three different words that come from liquor. And this could be a word that it carries the meanings of all of them. Now what how does that benefit us? This if it means if it comes from Dakota, then it means that just mentioning itself can have benefit.
vichara means to remember to remember also dimension, okay, so mentioning itself has benefit, whoever benefits from it or not you yourself will benefit when you mentioned a last name. This is the first thing that Cara to make an effort to remember that includes in it, it's included into when you make an effort to remember Allah, no matter how far you get, as far as the results still benefit has come to you. This is the second meaning. The third meaning is it's from fifth gear, that Kara does keep that reminding others that activity in and of itself, regardless of whether you see the results on the outside or not, it will still carry benefit. All of these lessons are captured inside
the words of the crop. This is told to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam because he was very he used to get very upset sallallahu alaihe salam when people didn't listen to the clear message for the Allah cabal enough Sokka Allah fit him in them, you know, we haven't had etha Safa. You're gonna kill yourself over grief if they don't believe in this, in this in this beautiful speech in this clear speech? Are you going to kill yourself over grief? So Allah says, No, don't worry about anything else. The only job you have to do is what? Remind for the kid in Nevada and then say are the corona yoshua? Yes, the Kuru from Tucker. soon, very soon, the one who, who will make an effort
to remember that karate make an effort to remember the feral includes an effort in it, right? So the one who fears will make an effort to remember now you see the word man here. Allah does not say say of the Corolla de yaksha. He doesn't say a levy, he said, Man, and commonly in English, we don't really see the difference between the two. So I want to highlight that here. The word man could be anyone. Anyone who has fear in them and Harsha came up a few suitors before, I believe it was in Ibiza, and even then as he had
the word Harsha means to fear something greater than yourself, or fear something that that has power to overcome you. Okay, that's what Russia is. Allah says, Whoever has that hatia whoever will have that, that that fear, even for a little while, will make an effort then to remember they will make an effort to say of the Kuru man yaksha. So the messenger is told to remind now is the reminder scary oftentimes, yes, the one who is scared will make an effort to remember for themselves they will exercise their memory and remember and by the way, what will they remember? What will they remember the ions that are being recited to them because the messengers told remind, remind with
what the care bill core and remind with the Quran, so if one gets scared about their destiny, they start remembering and what do they make an effort to remember? The word of Allah that is the vicar that's being talked about here in nationalism, the declare war in Allahu Allah Hafiz. So the word if unless he was used, a lot would have been talking about somebody in particular. But if money is being used, the scope is open. Anybody who has any fear can still make their way back and can still make an effort to remember say avec kuruman yaksha Wyatt agenda boo ha and Ashkar and who will make an effort to run away and to avoid at all costs that remember the how he refers to the color, right?
And Ashkar Alaska, I saw comes from Shaka Shaka tend to be unfortunate shocky is the opposite of or the antonym of the lid of salaried. So it is happier fortunate. shocky is someone unfortunate, meaning someone who doesn't have the fortune of good things. Good speech, good advice, good counsel. Good company. That guy doesn't have anything good. This is called shocky. Ashkar, the most unlucky the most unfortunate who doesn't have any, you know any good things in his life whatsoever. Most of your first two good advice and good counsel. So Allah says this most unfortunate person who surrounds himself with evil company, an evil reminder and evil discourse, right wasting his life
away. This person will make all efforts to avoid this mess.
The agenda job four comes from Jim Jim means side agenda means to avoid even touching your side, to distance yourself from something and to keep far away. So this person will make all efforts to distance himself from this reminder this is the most unfortunate person of all. He thinks that people that take the remembrance are unfortunate, but the reality Allah describes he is the most unfortunate he is the most unfortunate and what will make him what will make it clear that he's the most unfortunate and levy Aslan natural Cobra, by the way in the language, we had yet the Kuru and yet agenda from the same pattern the final one is making the effort to remember the others making
the effort to run away from the remembrance right now this most unfortunate person, this Ashkar, this was part of his plan, just like in the previous solar in the home Yaki. Duna Okay, they're making a plan. What was his plan to stay away from this remind at a personal level, he wanted to stay away. Now Allah says what makes him so unfortunate. And let the Aslan natural Cobra, the one who will enter the fire, the great fire, and we talked about the word yesler not being passive. It doesn't mean he will be entered into or he will be cast into when you see he will be cast into prison. It feels like some guard threw him in right. Your swimming pool throw himself in. He'll go
himself. His limbs will rebel against him, his hands, his legs, his feet, they'll all rebel against him. They'll go back to the slavery of a lion he'll cast himself into the fire he himself Subhana Allah and leviosa narrow Cobra and this you know in the previous surah Allah said we're Akito Qaeda I'm making a plan to he made his plan to stay away eliminate his plan to cast him into the Hellfire he himself having himself thrown into Hellfire May Allah protect us from the fire. This surah is in its literary form. One of its beauties is that the superlative is used often we found the words are
useless. Yusra Cobra coming up dounia Hi, then Allah, welcome to the hydro upca also right oola also the first all the superlative adjectives are used all through the solar so the most unfortunate gets the biggest fire and naran Cobra right the superlative form of the fire is used to soprano la familia movie when I hear there after now he's thrown into the fire then what will happen what what makes him so unfortunate even on top of that, here's another reason Leia movie he will not die in it when I hear nor will he live in it. He will not die in it. He will not live in it. You know of course in this surah Allah did not mention the name Jihad number Johanna mercerie he mentioned not
itself fire itself. In other words what punishment is Allah highlighting here specifically burning of the many punishments in fire and the Hellfire the one that a lot specifically highlighting here is burning itself. You ever see somebody get burned or heard about somebody get burned? Even if you imagine somebody getting burned? What's the biggest thing on their mind? What's the only thing on their mind? Get it off? Get it finish it. And if the if you can get the fire out what's the only thing they want them? What are they begging for? begging for death? They can't stand it. They can't stand the pain of burning. Now imagine Allah has put this person in the fire at him motoman Colima
can well now who will be made death will come to him from every direction he has every reason to die but he will never ever die well now who will be my yet he will never die but would you call that life would you call burning like that life's of how to look like a movie ha when I hear this person will beg for death remember for sofa yet Rosa Bora as soon as he sees hell he said oh just give me just now I haven't even been thrown in yet. And he says just kill me now I don't want to go in that's what he says. But now unless has no Leia movie How are ya? Allah malata john Domino's have enough
so you know the the fire itself is worse. I mean, we touched a little bit of fire we pull our finger back. This person is in it forever. Now your movie hallelujah. And Allah does not give him release with death. But afla Harmon does. You know so far the sutras have the surah has not been talking about paradise or no good and we previously we saw some good news so far. No good news. Right? Just the one who fears takes benefit of reminder but the one who doesn't is thrown into this kind of fire. Now Allah speaks about the successful Now you're ready to hear the alternative. But after Herman does occur, like Allah says and sort of look after her, and me noon, right, but after her,
the one someone has already attained success after her comes from the word Aflac, which comes from the farmer fella, fella, you know, Arabs were really obsessed with farming. Why? Because most of the Arabian region was desert. Very few places have what? farm so whatever few regions have farm, they would have lots of words for it because this was something very important to them.
For law is someone at the end part of the year when he's harvesting when he's getting the fruit of his labor. He's called
fella, this is the happiest time in the life of the year of a farmer, when he's putting the seed in the Arabic word for that scaffold. Okay, he's burying the seed. He's called gaffin, not the disbeliever. Garfield, this is the original meaning of the word cafe. Okay? Before it's done. So, at that time, he's nervous, I don't know if it's going to be a good season or not, I don't know if it's going to rain or not. I don't know if it's going to get into, you know, some sort of infestation or not in the fields. But at the end, if everything goes through, and it's time for harvest season, in any agricultural culture, there are lots of festivals and you know, celebrations and things like
that, because this is an amazing occasion. Right? Now Allah azza wa jal speaks about the sixth. This is why from this, we get the word muffler, the successful. In other words, this is not a kind of success that you just enjoy. There's a long perilous turmoil and labor behind it before you get to harvest. Right. So when alesse has come after her, the one who succeeded is not just he succeeded, what's highlighted is there's a lot of work that went into that success. Just like that farmer, a lot of work went in before you got to crop season before you got to harvest. So
the whoever was about to speak of, because he says God, it does two things. There's no doubt about it, number one, and number two, this has already the case, the person who was describing in this ayah has already attained success. Other
mentors aka whoever engages in the act of trying to cleanse themselves within whoever has the time and the effort to look inside themselves and say, How can I make myself a better person? How can I cleanse myself up Is there anything good left inside of me that I can nourish? You remember these and the word mind is open to anybody who ever engages in this act. And you will find as the sutra continues, what will keep you from doing this the bottom line of the sutra look inside yourself find something good inside of you find what is good inside of you and harvest it and let it come out. And the person who becomes concerned with cleaning themselves, they have already attained the ultimate
success because now they have the right concern. They have the right attitude. Remember the pseudo is about attitude right? They have the right concern, they have the right priority. But after her mentors, aka this scope is so open of this the word does occur that even Moosa offers around like we said, halakha Allah and Taka, would you consider looking into yourself and cleansing yourself? I'll make you a deal. You do that while at the lobby Kapha dosha I'll guide you to your Lord and you'll develop fear fears already been mentioned here too, while yaksha even insulted me known when Allah says for the moon, there's Salah, there's mentioned of salah and then cleansing yourself will levena
homeless Makati thilo loan here if law success is mentioned, then this key has also worked as a key is also mentioned. What isn't mentioned is Salah. So that's coming up in the next I was acara Smart V for Salah. Just like into the moon Allah Vina homefree sloty him. Hi, Sharon. Here it comes up again, because this key has mentioned. So now let's see the one who attained success. What were the things that he did? First he tried to find cleansing that he tried to cleanse himself from within, to help himself cleanse, to help cleanse himself what are the processes he engaged in? Well, that got a smaller be, he remembered the name of his Lord, he mentioned the name of his Lord. Now Allah
didn't say his Mala. He said, isma I'll be when he remembered that his name. He acknowledged that that is not just anyone's name. He's not just the Creator, not just the wise, the Wise One, the creator, the knowledgeable one happens to be my master and I happen to be his slave. And if he is my master, and I'm a slave, I better do I ever act like a slave what is the first act of a slave practical activity slave, the very next words for Salah, then as a result he made Salah, then he prayed that he prayed and this is an interesting nuance and play on words by the way. The beginning was such a small Robic and here why because Mara be for everybody else for the messenger a higher
thing be conscious of the perfection of the name of your Lord, the Supreme and for anyone the beginning point just mentioned the name of your Lord and the first thing that will be a consequence of that naturally will be you will want to connect to that Lord by means of sola sola. Okay, now the play on words here is really awesome. Because you know, when Allah azza wa jal says yes la yes Lin natto Cobra, the root for yes like Assad lamb and wow, side lamb and wow, okay. But the root words for salad, our site actually no sorry, the root words for son yesterday not Assad lamb and yeah, and the root words for Salah are side lamb and while they are very close to each other, but one of them
is entering the Hellfire, one of them is being saved and getting the ultimate success. So the contrast is the one who attains the ultimate success. What's the final practical manifestation of it? Salah one final nuance of this word here. Allah said know who you are and Rama Yaga right. So it applies to ours.
Allah, He knows the outside of our Salah, and what is also hiding inside the Salah, we're standing in one row all together. Everybody made well though, everybody's praying in the right direction, everybody's making signs that in the same direction everybody's listening to the same camera. But one person is thinking about what's home for dinner. And the other person is thinking, what did I leave halfway at work? And the other person's thinking, why what why is this guy next to me? You know, a little bit behind her a little bit ahead and the one person is remembering Allah. One person is actually remembering the name of his Lord and actually engaged in connected with law, they've
left the world around them. They've completely connected themselves to Allah May Allah give us that because you are in our silhouette.
Then Allah tells us what keeps humanity from finding this right priority of success. You know, in the end of law, right, the attain success. If you ask any human being what are they running after? success. A student is running after success by graduating a candidate is running for success by getting the job, a business owner running for success by expanding the business or making it you know, profitable. Everybody is running after success. We've defined something as success. So how come when a lead is explained this? People are just distracted from this ultimate success? What are they running after? A lie explains belt thirunal hiut adonia rather err, on the contrary, all of
you, you see, there's empty fat here. There was third person he mentioned the name of his Lord, he his Lord, right, third person and he prayed sunlight means so later, he didn't say you prayed. He said he prayed. But all of a sudden, there's no transition to the second person. Because when you think of someone in the third person, you're thinking abstract. I'm thinking about this one person who mentioned their Lord and they prayed. You're not thinking about who? yourself. Allah is always that makes you realize when he's giving you these lessons, who do they apply to? Don't think of someone else think of yourself well to see Runa he doesn't even say ballenas sirona people prefer
worldly life No, no he said you you have given preference you have compared to things and you've decided one is more valuable to you. This is Athol by the way to give to compare two things and decide one is more valuable to you than the other and you give it more time and preference and priority. Don't theater una al-hayat adonia the word dunya is the feminine form of the word Edna which means closer also means inferior. Allah calls this worldly life closer to you. You get things right away, and he also calls it inferior. The word dunya captures both of those things. You prefer this life? You prefer worldly life you prefer closer life. Why? Because the things you think success
are there right here. They're available right to you. The thing a lot call success like Jenna. Right? being saved from hellfire. Is that something near or far? In our point of view? It seems far so it was in the home yellow una hora de when Allah who kariba they see it very far away. But we see it very close. But the human being he sees the house in Gemini very far. But the house he can get using a haram transaction very close. Right? He sees the drinks of pirate paradise when we zoom into sneak in and yes, Robbie makara Oh, that will come when it comes. It's there. Yeah, I believe that too. But the Haram drink that's being offered here is right now. Right? Hold on. Yeah, it's there we
believe, but then the haraam on the internet and the alarm on the television and the alarm going down the street or hanging out at the mall or in the hallway in high school or at work that's here right now a pleasure for my eyes right now. So allow for something far in our view and our pleasures are right here in front of us immediate immediate right. So we take preference of this close closer life.
Well, hello to hydro Abacus Han Allah and the Hereafter is two things better and far more lasting, better and more lasting. By the way, both of these words are comparative in nature. Why are the comparative words used? Because the previous ayah did we engage in a comparison to theory una una gives comparison you give preference to one over the other. So Allah gives his comparison. Now, we are headed to hiren. Here, mostly mama Shafi give an interesting example. I'll give it to you because I think it helps you internalize this lesson very, very beautifully. You know, if imagine you were given two options, one you can live in a house, small house, not furnished, not in the best
neighborhood, whatever. It's small house, but you own it, it's yours. Or you're given the option to stay in a five star hotel for two days.
You're either given ownership of a house, or you can stay in a hotel. Really nice one. What would any smart person pick?
Either a home forever, or a hotel for two days. Even though the home is not that impressive. What would you pick?
You pick the home.
That's what any sane person would do, in some sense, is like that. We don't since we don't see it. We think it's coming.
inferior I don't know what's gonna be there. I know what internet what what furniture I want from my house right now. And what the interior decor should look like. I don't know about Gemini, if they have IKEA or not over there, or, you know if we can go if they have any websites where you can pick the furniture and match or whatever. But I know about that about here right now. So we think of journalists. Yeah, it's there. But I'm not so sure what's gonna happen out there. Right? But it's forever. And what do we have here? forever. They tell you, you own the home forever, but you don't own yourself forever.
But we're gonna be giving you a person gets immigration in the United States, they get a green card, there are permanent residents, are they really a permanent resident?
Nobody here is a permanent resident, we're all temporary, we're all going to be gone. The only thing permanent about this is the only fixed thing is death. That's the only fixture so alive. So this is what aka to hide. First of all, it's not even a house, it's better. Any house you can have here, that house is going to be better. And on top of that, it will be everlasting. It will be more lasting. In both ways. It's better. So let gives you two two comparisons that convinced you of the better nature of the ARCA last parable before we can conclude in Shaolin. And look at the last two out of the soda. You know, human beings, we have this innate nature in us to want to get things
right away, and to not want to wait. This is the nature of human beings. If you're in business, and somebody offers you a, you know, a product right now, to sell right now at a cheap price. Like if you sell something for $100, the customer says, I'll give you 95 cash. Another customer says I'll give you 100, but two months from now, what are you gonna do? You're gonna sell for 95 you want the cash now? You need the money now. Similarly, a lot offers agenda. But when
later, no brochures, no pictures, right? No websites you can visit to get a view of the property. Nothing. You know, he just tells you it's in a good neighborhood. You'll have good neighbors, you'll have a nice yard. It's a waterfront property, pretty large rooms, right? He tells you all this stuff, and you get to stay forever. No property tax, none of this stuff. He tells you all this stuff. But do you get to see any of it? No. Now any human being when they want to buy something big? Don't they want to see it first? Especially if it's a heavy price is a lot what what price? is he asking from us? Everything, our life ourselves? Right? It begins with remembering Allah, then
engaging in Salah, but it's really your entire life that Allah is asking for. Right? It's not such a small price. But he's asking you and I believe he's not going to show you anything. The only thing you have from him, the one who's selling this to you, by the way the sales analogy is using the Quran, right? The one selling it to you the only thing he's giving you His Word. That's it.
Any other sale if the guy says man, I'll get you the house. Right? Pay me now. But you'll have the house in 20 years. Where's the house? I'm not going to tell you? Can I see it? No, you got my word? Would you take something like that? Would you take a deal like that? No. you'd call it a scam. And if you bought it your family, you'd come home to your family say Guess what? I bought this house? We can move in in 20 years? Where is it? He's gonna send me the address. But I paid him all our savings. What's your family gonna say? You're crazy. What's wrong with you? But a believer when he gives things for the sake of Allah when he gives his life, his wealth, his assets, his career, his
his efforts for the sake of Allah. And he goes to his family and he says, you know, I'm giving this for a law. And Jenna is guaranteed guess what his family says? Are you crazy?
What are you talking about? What about the home here? You've gone nuts. So the hypocrites would say to the believers who are sometimes their own family, they will say to him so for heart these fools these idiots. Look at these people. What are they running after? It's a matter of perspective, a loved ones here. You know, this is why a lot you know, the Messenger of Allah called his Deen strange. We believe in something begins with believing in something you can see. And levena you know, Neville Ray allows promising you all this stuff, but you can't see it. You got to believe it. That's what the test of faith is. Right. So where does your Eman in the alpha get tested? In the
preference? What gets your time? What gets your effort? What gets your attention? What do you into in your free time? Where does your day go? Right? You don't you can say you and I can say we prefer a lot of you prefer this Dean. You know, we live for the sake of Allah in US allottee you want to Suki Mama, Mama to me, we can say that till we're blue in the face. But if our actual preferences are headed in a different direction, then Allah knows, in the Haryana moogerah Maya, he knows what you show. He knows the obvious and he knows what's hidden also, he knows both of them. He knows deep inside of ourselves if we made an effort to clean ourselves up. So this is something you and I have
to ask ourselves in a very serious way. We have to engage in an interrogation of our own selves. We have to look deep inside ourselves to find the answer to this question and May Allah make
of those who give preference to the market over this world in the hands of a Lula, no doubt it is this that has truly been in the earliest scriptures, what has been in the earliest scriptures that the next life is better and more lasting. What has been in the earliest scriptures The very first thing this surah said suddenly his murghab became the declare the greatness and acknowledge the perfection of the name of your Lord the Most High. That declaration has been there in all of the Scriptures and at the end also, this simple lesson that the next life is better than this. If one internalizes that they've got the gist of every messengers message, every messengers message and who
which two messengers have been mentioned, by the way, this in the hydrolysis of Allah, the earliest revelations are mentioned and in a contrast in the previous solar, which revolution was mentioned, this one in the hula Kowloon first this Quran is the decisive speech is decisive speech, which two messengers are mentioned whose scriptures are mentioned at the end. Sophie Ibrahima one Moosa. Now, why sobre Hema Moosa? what's the what's the benefit of these two, when at any of the others I know him as salaam, Allahu Allah, Allah, but the two primary audiences of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were the mushy Kuhn of kurush. And the people of the book, The mushy
Guna kurush, which prophet at least did they acknowledge? Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, the people of the book the Jews and the Christians, their legacy begins with with which Prophet Musa alayhis salam, the concept of revolution begins with musasa. Even the Christians believe in the Old Testament, the one that was delivered to masala Salaam. So the two audiences, the two primary audiences, their ears are tuned. He's not saying something new. He's the same thing your father Abraham said. And your later leader Musa said Allah He was set up, it was the same exact message that's coming together here. This is the power of data. And maybe that reminder will click with
someone because remember whether kids are in the car, right remind perhaps reminder will have some benefit if reminder serves to have some benefit. So Pamela, that is how the solar ends. And once again, I conclude by saying the way the solar began, the pseudo began with something universal. And the surah ends by reminding us that same essential message to things in the solar actually all three Eman yet and this is one of the wisdoms of our messengers. All three Imani otter covered all three man yet. The first part of Eman is belief in a line is perfection that's covered in the beginning of the surah. The second part of your mind, you could say is revelation that's covered in the middle of
the surah. When Allah tells him He will make him recite and he won't forget. That's risala the third essential part of faith is the afterlife that's covered at the end of the solo and Al Qaeda to hyaluron.
So Eman, Bella Bella Salah.
of them are covered in one suit. It's like a suit of all of the minds summarized a reminder of all of the aspects of our faith, in very few words just 19 May Allah azza wa jal give us the benefit of the reminder. May Allah help us memorize and recite the souligner Salawat in accordance with the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu sallam, May Allah help us and our families internalize his teachings. barakallahu li walakum Hakim when I finally what year can be hired when they can Hakeem was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
