Today we're beginning our study, and hopefully completing our study of sort of budget. This series, as was mentioned before, was continuing in Gaithersburg, Maryland, up to SATA last year for those of you who want to catch up, you can go to vegana.com slash stream and

00:04:03--> 00:04:41

download the previous littles. So you can keep up with the series in chat lovetoknow. One of the components of our CDs series is to explore the cohesion of the Quran. In other words, how one soldier is tied into the next. The last thing we read in the previous soldier was a threat from Alaska, which ended sort of last year. He says in a welcome from the inner laner he said, It is only to us that their return is going to take place and it is only upon us. We've taken it upon ourselves to take the reckoning in your account. And we've spoken previously about the fact that if anybody gets questioned on the day of judgment or any questioning happens for them, then that means they've

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

been destroyed. The people that are safe on the Day of Judgment are the ones who avoid any questioning whatsoever. So in case of the believers for a moment at Akita via MIDI for so far, you have Sabu is seven yes Ilan he will be dealt with with an easy reckoning as for the one who may Allah make us from the ones who's given their book in their right hand.

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

They'll be given an easy reckoning. In other words, they won't be questioned, the angels will come and it'll just have allowed them to just pass by without thoroughly checking their accounts. In any case, this sort of begins now with the with an oath. And there's some brief reminder about the nature of oath in the Quran. In English, it's kind of hard to decipher, because in the average translation, you hear things like what has been translated as by time, right of our budget by the early dawn, or by the crack of dawn, etc. But we don't really speak like that in English anymore. We don't swear by things in this way. So this sort of language is a little bit alien to people in

00:05:35--> 00:06:11

contemporary times, in most cultures and civilizations today, we don't really talk like this. This is an ancient sort of mode of speech. So one of the very important things to do is to understand why is it that the people of old used to take oaths, then how are they being used in the Quran and what their function is? And I know we've talked about some of these things before. But as a brief reminder, in childhood, the ancient Arabs didn't get your attention by saying, Hey, can you hear or listen to this, or what I'm about to say is really important. The way of getting the attention of an audience that isn't taking your message seriously in ancient ipilimumab, in the language of the

00:06:11--> 00:06:20

ancient Arabs was to take a class. So for example, when a lot as though it just says what anything what DD was a tool and what ODC D was, so

00:06:21--> 00:07:00

when they need to check any oath in the Koran, it is a means by which the attention of the audience is grabbed, what you're about to be told, is very important. Listen on. So this is one thing to get the attention of the listener. The other thing that's unique in the Quran is allows origin gives us the oath, and he wants us to reflect on the things that he took an oath by, so that we are prepared for the actual lessons of this law. So it's almost like a prelude or an introduction to the soul. before Allah azza wa jal tells us in an incentive you first no doubt the human being is in Doom is a loss right? before we're ready for that lesson, we need to reflect on something What is that Alaska,

00:07:00--> 00:07:38

time is running out, time is dripping away. So this is one of the few droplets of the essence of what an oath is. So this is all also It begins with an oath when fudging and so in the series of oaths that talk about different parts of the day, we'll have a sharps or expression and parts of the day that are stellar, like the sky, the early morning, the evening, the evening, as it turns red, all of these different oaths. This is a continuum of that series. And a lot begins with the with the oath on that time of the morning, when the darkness is ripped, and the light begins. Now let's just explore the meaning of the word fudging a little bit in Charlottetown. First and foremost, the word

00:07:38--> 00:08:14

magic, and other words that are related to it have one common threat and that is to rip completely tear open completely, to rip something so that light comes through it. And that's really what fudger is described as it's as though it tears The night open, and light starts to come through. And the first sight of first sign of that crack of the night that the night is over is that fudging it may not be the brightest time of the morning. But even one ray of light is enough to know now the brightness is started at the event has begun solar hazards and takes an oath by this time of the day. What else is critical and something to note about this day is it's the beginning of life. In

00:08:14--> 00:08:47

other words, animals, animals and human beings, these normal people they go to sleep at this time, right. And as soon as funtime stars are in preparation of that morning, animals, birds start chirping animals start coming out of their nests and things like that. It's the beginning of life on the earth. When Allah describes the night he gives it one of the attributes that gives it is stillness and death. When they have either such and such a meaning when it's still it doesn't move at all. It's a symbol of death. But here he begins by a time where life begins. And you know, one of the alumni commented that no one needs to wake up the creature to get up at this time. And all of

00:08:47--> 00:09:23

the sounds that the creatures make are at the speed of Allah, what inventory in 1974 become the hero of Kahuna to be humble. Is there anything in existence that doesn't already declare the perfection of Allah by doing this? How but you cannot understand that you have no ability to understand how they praise Allah. But it is only the believer who wakes up on his own among the creatures that have choice wakes up on his own to worship Allah azza wa jal at this hour. So let's swears by this enormous time. The last thing you should note about this hour this time, is that according to many of us Citroen summit, I live in central London a fee even for sure and

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

this is the time of mourning in which the heart is closest and most fearful, before the presence of the Lord. Why is that? Why is the heart most fearful before a lion this hour? First of all, because the same has gotten up at this hour for no worldly reason. There is no you don't have to go to work. You don't have to do any Home Affairs you'd have to cook or clean or nothing. The only reason you've gotten up is to stand before laws. That was it. No tests have come up and invaded your mind yet. And so at this time, the hardest and the most, you know most aware of the presence of a lot of other scholars that can be taught in for example, rights.

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

McElhatton, young women I bought a TV and

00:10:06--> 00:10:49

about when a how, when or how long but in barama one other laugh up by now. Now what he's saying here is when the largest swears by the morning time, what he's alluding to is life after death. Because just like night was dead and booked the further time is the beginning of life alleged reminding us by the dawn of every budget that Allah has the power to bring life out of death. And this is further fortified in a prayer that we make when we go to sleep every night. And when we wake up we actually we don't even make dogs sing. Praise be to Allah who woke us up after we were sleeping. Rather we say a piano. Tena, he gave us life after we had died. Right. So we we actually

00:10:49--> 00:11:28

allude to our sleep at night with death, and that linking up which is supposed to be at fudger time with like, so this is a reminder actually a resurrection. A show, Kenny writes the Ender who worked on pajama Palma, and then the Harmon Pulliam, because this is the time that darkness is removed, and it's torn away and on every single day. And what he's alluding to is, this is a reference as far as Zayn also writes in his, in his book, dusty pursuer. He writes that Allah mentioning here is not just a reminder of the hereafter. It's not just a reminder of the importance of the prayers, but it's also a reminder of the dawn of Islam itself, meaning Islam itself is going to manifest in the

00:11:28--> 00:11:51

struggle of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu. It said, and this is mechanical on right now, everything's dark, there's no victory of a stem, and the future seems uncertain. But Allah has given a guarantee by saying when we budget he swears by that morning time, just like that morning rips through the darkness, this mission is going to rip through the darkness of ship, and it will be established in the land. The next oath that allowes always takes is when I add in

00:11:52--> 00:12:31

when I add in, and by 10 nights, and with the language is really interesting, because the word fudger had an end on it, right? It was the Elif lamb was placed on it in America. So it's the morning the dawn prayer, or the morning time. But here, he says and the 10 nights, but he doesn't say and the 10 nights, and I swear by the 10 nights, this is why there's been a variation of opinions on how to interpret you know what these 10 nights really mean. And pretty much the majority of the prophecy room from the sahabas time to the first generation to the vast majority of traditional lighter writers in our history have fallen basically into two camps when it comes to the

00:12:31--> 00:13:05

interpretation of the 10. The opinion on what the 10 nights here means what are these 10 nights that alleged swearing by first of all noted for less swearing by them, they must be something really important. Second of all, they are part of a point he's about to make their part of the lesson of the soul so that these two things need to remain intact in our minds. And so the two camps are as follows. One group says this is the last 10 nights of Ramadan. The other group says this is the first 10 nights of Asia This is the majority two there are other opinions, some say Mahabharata and others, but the vast majority of Sahaba. And who and Iran have fallen under these terms, the last 10

00:13:05--> 00:13:44

of Ramadan, and the first half of the job. Before we talk about the significance of that just a few things about the last 10 days of any month, and the first 10 days of any month, the last 10 and the first 10 days of any month, especially in Islamic the lunar calendar, are the most visible when you see the shifting of the position of the moon. Right The moon is its changes day to day to day are most visible in the first 10 days. And in the last 10 days. In the middle 10 days, there is of course change, but it's not as easily obvious to the iron. The variations are minor, but the major changes are the first 10 and the last 10. So which means this oath even though it's talking about

00:13:44--> 00:14:22

the knights and these specific knights, which we'll talk about, it has also continued the theme of what the surah began with this little was also paying attention to the sky, because you don't know if it's legit unless you pay attention to the sky. And now by these 10 nights in which the moon's position changes the most. Allah azza wa jal has also alluded to a certain feature of night, because of this is lucky to have a lot of comments that is changing of knights is actually a lot teaching us about the inevitable when you know fudge, it is not completely bright, it's a little bit bright, but you know for sure the full days ahead. And so when you see a partial moon on the first night, or the

00:14:22--> 00:14:53

first night of a month, you know it's gonna get thicker and thicker and thicker. And when you see a thicker moon, I can have a 20th night You know, it's gonna get skinnier and skinnier, it's gonna start dissipating, right, so you have this idea of what is coming ahead. And this is connected to the previous oath and that the victory of Islam is coming ahead. And now if you want to know how inevitable it is, just pay attention to the moon. But let's specifically talk about how it's been interpreted. You know, the first 10 nights of the major and the last 10 nights of Ramadan. A lot of them have received have commented about the blackout and these nights and you know about them. The

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

last 10 nights are the most blessed nights, you know, and especially in earning the last forgiveness and learning is paradise.

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

stingley enough, the first 10 nights of the Hajj are also the nights even if you're not making Hajj if you're making 100 of course, this is the most one of the most blessed acts you can do. But you're encouraged to fast. We are all encouraged to sacrifice an animal. We're supposed to be in union with this incredible act of Riba and some of the most blessed days of voluntary I bother to Allah and Allah to Allah and fasting for Allah happen in these nights. And what's amazing is at the end of this surah Allah azza wa jal speaks about the people who earn his paradise when he says, What collegia nothing, enter My Paradise. And in the beginning, the days are mentioned, in which earning

00:15:35--> 00:16:11

his Paradise is the easiest, the easiest in the first 10 days of the job, and in the last 10 days of Ramadan, but there's more going on here inshallah, tada, I won't spend too much time talking about the blessings of Ramadan, and the last 10 nights because you know about them for the most part, and the blessings of the hijab. We'll talk about it from another perspective, and that is the perspective of the seal of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the last 10 nights. The significance is that it falls later to Qatar. And the other is the night in which the Koran has been revealed. So the last 10 nights, their significance revolves around the beginning of Revelation, meaning the

00:16:11--> 00:16:50

beginning of the mission of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the last 10 nights of the hedger By the way, Hajj is the occasion, which was the the conclusive victory of the messengers missions on the London we send them over the rebellious city of Makkah, how was Makkah conquered, it was conquered at the occasion of a hedge, the hedge so 10 Knights that allude to the beginning of the messengers, missions of the lahardee send them and another 10 Knights that allude to the conclusion of the mission of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and how Why are both of them? How are we allowed to interpret what I and I should as not one or the other, and both, because there's no any flat on them, it's not

00:16:50--> 00:16:51

one day.

00:16:52--> 00:17:28

It's not the 10 nights, it is 10 nights and it's open, so the scope remains wide. So now the entire seal of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is captured by the symbolic representation of 10 blessing nights. And these are the 10 most blessed nights in the worship of a large village and how beautiful and how brief. And so connecting this to the earth that came before the dawn of Islam is near. And of course, the dawn also the fetch, it also represents the Day of Judgment, but the symbol of that, that day of judgment, you know, what the greatest sign of the last days, the greatest sign of the last day is becoming of Mohamed Salah Hardy, and how is the coming of

00:17:28--> 00:18:06

the Messenger of Allah some Illuminati, something captured in the next two oaths by the beginning of his mission and by the end of his mission. So first of all, the victory of Islam is guaranteed Second of all, the coming of the last day is guaranteed, because he himself his arrival itself and the coming of the Quran itself is in and of itself a guarantee of the last day and its eventual coming. So let's look further on and tell them tada as how it's been interpreted. Traditionally, Lucy Ramallah for example, rights were bin Laden and founded on mubaraka where he actually didn't hit the enter Who am I am Asana Asana grad? He says, This is the these are the 10 nights of the

00:18:06--> 00:18:40

hedger. as other said, these are the 10 nights of Ramadan, because this is the most blessing. These are the most blessed nights of the year. And he quotes a Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam that appears, he said he alcoholic, now I am and I'm undecided. There are no days of good deeds, hello in a lucky few hidden them in heaven a year that are more beloved to Allah, in that Allah the actual more beloved to Allah in them except for these days. Yeah, I should, I should have been meaning the 10 of the agenda. And he was asked whether it has the same meaning. Even if you struggle in the path of Allah go out on the battlefield for the sake of Allah, these 10 nights are

00:18:40--> 00:19:19

even greater than that. And the Messenger of Allah replied some a lot more I think he was sent them. Even then what else do you have the feasts? I mean, not even to have this ability in the Odin hora jbfc. He will Maddie from bandimere. Gentlemen, that exhibition, he says, except for the person who went with his wealth and his own self and none of it came back. That's the only one that gets more reward than the one who takes advantage of the 10 nights of the congestion karnala. So when I add in ash, now we move rather quickly in sha Allah tala to the next day, the next oath that allows Oh, it didn't takes. And that is what chef ate. Well, what was chef even what the common translation of a

00:19:19--> 00:19:56

chef are, and and what and what is the odd and the even chef are literally in Arabic needs to be together with someone, you know, the idea of Shiva. Shiva, is to say, you know, if you want to make shuffle for someone to get a job, and this guy's taken an interview, and the boss knows you really well, you go and you say, this guy is with me. We're together, meaning we're one this is chef, Chef and literally means even two things, and one part of another. So you and when people are walking together, they're walking together in shuffle, meaning they're walking in a pair, Allah azza wa jal takes an oath by the pair and then he takes an oath by the singular, the the art and what the

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

meaning the art. Now this has been interpreted in English

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

credible number of ways, but inshallah tada we're going to stick to the ones that are closest to the siac of the text and that the majority of Darla commented upon the first most popular. The fear of this that appears even among the Sahaba is a shocker alludes to all of the creation of Allah. Amin Galicia in Helena. So Jane, from everything we created pairs. So when Alice has appeared he's talking about a decade ago alongside the male and the female, the night of the day, the sun and the moon. Everything he created the ocean in the land, right? darkness and light, he created things in pairs. So a chef referring to all that which he created in pairs. And then what's the only one that

00:20:38--> 00:21:16

never has appeared? Allah himself so and what Allah subhana wa tada a summit and Lizzy Lamia, Linda Mulan, so this is how many of the Sahaba interpreted a chef I wonder what the meaning of La swears by the pair, meaning the creation and swears by himself a lot of zodion. But there are other ways in which this has been interpreted also, some have connected it to the previous oath, saying two things. One, we find these last 10 nights, some of them are odd nights, some of them are even nights. Sometimes the months themselves are odd. Sometimes the months themselves are even. But regardless of the case, there are still blessing months, right. So that's one way in which this oath

00:21:16--> 00:21:56

is connected to the ones that came before. Katana, the Allahu anhu, went even further and connected it to the oath of and fudging and he says a chef means all the everyday, a chef of the even his everyday because every day is a pair, it's a night and a day. And water is the last day in which there's only day but there's no night. Right? It stands alone every other day is created in pairs. But that last day is created to stand alone by itself. And finally, and perhaps the most, the deep interpretation of a chef. Well what is as follows that a lot of division created everything in pairs. But every part of that pair is one, right? Two is not two, it's one and one, right. So every

00:21:56--> 00:22:28

one of those things is unique in and of itself, if you look at it by itself is a marvelous creation. But if you only look at it, you don't get the whole picture, you have to look at the whole. In other words, you look at one and then you look at the other and then you look at them together. But you have to look at them individually also, meaning for example, the sun is a remarkable creation, but you won't appreciate its beauty and its full function until you appreciate what it does for the moon, how its light reflects off of the moon there together. You could be Marvel, you could Marvel on the land. But the land in of itself is not the complete terrain, you have to also reflect on the

00:22:28--> 00:23:04

ocean, the sky is not enough. There's also the earth, etc. The male and the female, right? So all of these different pairs that allows that would have created each of them demands their own reflection. Why is this important? And how does this connect to the previous oats allows origin in this oath, he said something very profound. People did not believe in the last day. In the previous sutra, people didn't think their hisab is coming, the reckoning is coming. And so Lord reminded them of the day in which he will take their account. But apparently that reminder didn't do any benefit. And when it doesn't do any benefit, then when the messenger doesn't see any like, you know, results with the

00:23:04--> 00:23:39

people he's reminding constantly, a lot as I told him in the previous software that Karina and Tom was just remind, you're just there to remind That's it, you are nothing more than a means of delivering reminder, that's all your job is don't be frustrated with the lack of results. Right. What that illustrates on the Prophet's behalf is a Lola horizon. And he's supposed to remain committed. But it illustrates on behalf of the audiences, these people are pretty much bent upon not taking advantage of the reminder. So for these people, what has happened is they've only looked at one part of the pair, they're only looked at the water, meaning this world, but this world, this

00:23:39--> 00:24:05

life is also paired with the next slide, but they haven't looked at that part of the pair. And if you don't look at that part of the pair, everything falls apart. And actually I'll try and connect this gonna sound a little bit philosophical, but bear with me, inshallah, I'll try and connect this idea of this world, paired with the next world, like days paired with night, and you know, the sun and the moon, they're paired together. If you don't understand this, you don't understand the relationship between the creation and between Allah.

00:24:06--> 00:24:42

You won't understand this relationship. Well, how are these two, two very different things actually deeply connected? You see a lot as well, if you believe there's a God, then you have to believe he's absolutely fair, absolutely. Just that he does not do injustice. Because if you say he doesn't do justice, then one of his perfect names has been taken away. And if you take any perfection away from Allah, then no longer do you believe in Allah, you have to believe in a less perfection. What is the biggest problem the atheist has with God? You know what it is? He'll come to you and say, Oh, yeah, there's a God, that How come there's so much injustice? How come there's so much killing? How come?

00:24:42--> 00:25:00

There's so much disease? How come there's so much poverty? How come there's so much cruelty? How can criminals get away with their crimes? Right? These are the kinds of questions he asked and make it even simpler. Let's look at it from the Islamic point of view. You know, there's somebody who kills some innocent person, he kills an innocent person, what's the most you can do to them? We can

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

Kill them, kill them back. Right? I variety, you know, an iPhone I head for a head etc. Right? But now think about this if one person kills 100 people, what's the most you can do to them?

00:25:14--> 00:25:41

If a one person kills 100, you can't kill them 100 times how many times can you kill? One? So from a philosophical point of view, is that justice or no? That's not justice. That's not fair. Similarly, the people who do good let's not just talk about people who do evil people who do good, do they necessarily get what they deserve? People that are charitable or act righteously look at the legacies of some of the greatest people that ever lived on insulin. Masada salami Rahim, Allah eSATA these are

00:25:42--> 00:26:19

the messengers of the greatest commitment and look at their life easy life, because they're the best people they should have the most reward or most comfort, no, you look at their lives, and they're the most uncomfortable flyers being thrown into a fire kid, you know, attempting to slaughter your own son. Right? All these difficulties and then leaving out in the middle of being labeled a fugitive from the law wanted for murder sent out in the middle of the desert working for somebody, you know, laborers with extreme labor. No honey said I'm conveying the message to the people for 950 years. None of this sounds easy. So on the side of evil, you don't see justice. And on the side of

00:26:19--> 00:26:56

good It seems like there is no justice except we believe a light is just so how do you balance you know, for in accounting terms, how do you debit the credit? And how do you credit the debit? How do you balance this accounting, this journal, the only means of that is the day of judgment. The only means of that is the data but if you don't believe that Allah will do justice on that day, and that guy who killed 100 people will pay for every one of them fully, then you you don't believe that he's fair. Either luck, so your belief in Allah disappears. And so when Allah began, he says, a shift in what refers to the creation and to the uniqueness of Allah then it refers to the two parts of life

00:26:56--> 00:27:20

this world and the next world and if you refuse to believe in the next world, then you cannot believe in justice and when you start believing in justice what oh, God goes away with it. The belief in Allah xojo the belief in a lot disappears was chef It's incredible how beautifully and how eloquent the and how briefly, Alaska captured these enormous teachings inside very very brief words when Frederick when I was shuffling

00:27:21--> 00:28:00

so inshallah tada let's look at some of the things that Allah might have said before and reiterating what I've already stated for you. For example a lucila love Allah writes up some of you poorly Shay in the Shia Amazonian were in my phone. Oh, who doesn't move in hunt will hire them as a chef they will water on the one hand includes all creation or it could be it's a comparison of how everything is created in pairs and how Allah is unique, which is what we said before which is why we find in a hadith but in Allah tala, why don't what are written also what that is also pronounced with, but it's also it's argued in the seminar that the better pronunciation is, as what then he says the chef

00:28:00--> 00:28:37

am when they only when, what yo and the diva ninja who were who are Yeoman piano, or yo McKeon rather, this is what Mr. Cotton says, actually, and I shared this with you before. He says a shepherd that even is the day in the night. And the the odd one or the odd one is the day which has no peer, no day or no light. It's just one. And that is Yokoyama. The other reason there's no day and night on we call it the day, but really, it doesn't mean day in the sense that we understand it. Because our measure of night and day is dependent on the position of the sun. Right and the moon. But what happens on the last day, what do you mean by shumsa? Well, the sun and the moon collide,

00:28:37--> 00:28:57

right? And the sun's light disappears in a shumsa kuvira. So the moon is gone, the sun is gone. If the moon's gone, what's the speaker you know what the sun is gone, what to speak of the moon, so we don't measure or appreciate that day in any other way. Some other interesting and you know, in interpretations, which have been criticized by others, but since they occur in our history, I'll just share them with you.

00:28:59--> 00:29:40

One of the interpretations was a shuffle the pair refers to the Koran and Medina that the paired cities are the period holy sites and what the refers to and vital macness meaning in Jerusalem. So that's one opinion but it has really been criticized by a lot of one on after that. Anyhow, the last oath in this in this series of these oats is when they lead is a beautiful beautiful of Salah yesterday that I swear by the night as it scrolls away, unless I swear by the night as it scrolls away. Now normally in the Arabic language we were expecting to hear when they need either Yes, Li they're supposed to be a yeah at the end at yejide. Right? There's a yeah at the end. So what nearly

00:29:40--> 00:29:59

it is three, but Allah azza wa jal didn't, you know, give us the Yeah, in the ayah it's just a cassava daily. It is just a Tesla. So first of all, let's understand what saw yesterday means or what it means to travel or take a stroll at nighttime, to take a stroll at nighttime, and of course a great scholar and we'll have this was asked

00:30:00--> 00:30:20

How come I didn't say the here? How can we, you know, put your foot in the yard was removed? How come? And he said it was actually a tough teacher. So he said, come back after a year, and I'll answer you to see how serious you are. So the student came back after a year. And he answered. And actually this is one of the answers that recorded and pretty much any traditional diversity of your study this answer

00:30:22--> 00:30:57

it is that the word seriously is not used for night. The night doesn't take a stroll in them, I use Rafi a stroll is taken in it, people take a stroll in the night, the night itself doesn't take a stroll. But you see, this is also an illustration of a lost power. People have control over themselves, but they don't have control over time. People have control over themselves, but not over time. But who was the only one who has control over time, a lot as a surgeon, he makes it take a stroll he makes even the night take a stroll. And how this book is connected to the first few is even more remarkable. You see, the first oath was when fragile.

00:30:58--> 00:31:25

And the last oath These are four roles, right? The first oath is one project. And the last oath is when lady in is these two are connected, actually. And the middle two are connected a chef, what, when actually, well as a national chef, even with the 10 knights and the autumn even we said those two are connected. So the first and the fourth are connected, and the second and the third bolts are connected. What's the connection between the first and the fourth? What comes first budget or the night starting to drift away?

00:31:26--> 00:32:03

budget, right? I mean, for example, it's three o'clock. It's not budgeted yet, but you realize future is on the way. So you would say when lady is is by the time by tonight, I swear by the night, at the time it starts to drift away. I know that fudge is on the way. So chronologically speaking, what were we expecting first when they need is the first one further later? That's what we were expecting. What did Allah mention first, pleasure first and the moving of the night and the departing of the night later in the story swears by the departing of the night later. And what this is is actually the priority or the major sign mentioned before the minor sign. You see the major

00:32:03--> 00:32:42

sign the major sign is the day of judgment. But are there indications that the day of judgment is coming? It's on even though you haven't seen it yet that light hasn't broken out yet? That budget hasn't begun yet? Are there signs of it already in place like the night taking a stroll already? Yes, that is the coming of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam as we said, the one of the the greatest song of the last day is the coming of Mohamed Salah Salem, which is captured in the middle to ODEs in the middle to oats, we find that Canada. So from the beginning to the end, all of these, these oats are connected. One of the things that really captures the imagination and is baffling for

00:32:42--> 00:32:49

the believers is the next statement of a lot as origin in the soil. He says healthy there because someone may be hedging.

00:32:50--> 00:33:32

Is there in this in that meaning in all of these notes that I've taken in that statement? Is there enough of an oath? Is there an Is there a powerful enough as I would translate it in simpler English right to get the idea across Lizzie hedger for people of rock solid intellect. hedger in Arabic means a boulder comes from a bowl, okay. And it's used in classical Arabic for the intellect a Latin, okay, the man an atom. So what is the boulder of large rock has to do with intellect, to the Arabs, essentially, the intellect was a means of restraint, or control or holding you off from doing things you would have would have done otherwise. Simply speaking, if you don't have an intellect,

00:33:32--> 00:34:08

you're going to touch fire. But if you have intellect, your intellect will hold you from touching it. Right. So the intellect they understood it as a means of keeping you from harmful things. And what is one of the biggest things that can keep you from getting to where you want to go a boulder, so they would actually parallel intellect with a boulder like this barrier in front of you that doesn't let you pass. Allah uses this word By the way, hedge it also means people will have people's intellect that has enormous restraint. It's not just talking about smart people. It's talking about speaking people that be with the knowledge they have leads them to stop running after their emotions

00:34:08--> 00:34:45

and running after their temptations. They have control enormous amounts of control over themselves. And also they stop and think before they move on like a barrier is holding them the boulders placed in front of them by making this statement is there enough of an O in all of that we won federal aid and I shuffled even what when they leave is in all of that is there enough of an oath for the people of profound intellect of solid intellect of people who can hold their temptations back. What a lot of agendas telling us here is don't just move on, reflect on these thoughts. If you have a sign, a sign of good intellect for you will be that you will spend time on this earth and Elon normally

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

doesn't do that. So kind of what I normally when Allah swears he doesn't go back and say pay attention to that, oh, he doesn't normally do that. So this is actually a very unique place in the Quran that allows origin does that the only other instances of emphasizing an author to say

00:35:00--> 00:35:38

Sometimes a man himself says I swear, instead of saying what like one day he was Shamsi, what comedy was so he says the scene will be your will piano scene will be heaven but that's coming in the next surah inshallah, Thailand next week. So that's one way in which you know it can be emphasized. Another way we find is what India who la casa mundo de la buena de. And no doubt it is an oath, if you had any idea of enormity, it's an enormous oath if you had any clue at all. That's Alice's way of telling us that that oh, you know, when Alice's fellow seems to be more akin to June, we're in the hula Casa mundo de Anima. De I swear by the placement of the stars. And if you had any idea that

00:35:38--> 00:35:53

is an enormous, enormous of if you had any idea at all, and actually comment the placement of the stars, that oath is alluding to the placement of the ayat of the Quran in the Quran. And so at the end of that oath, you know what he says in nothing will occur Adam can even feel

00:35:55--> 00:36:33

so that when he talked about the Noble Quran, he compares it to the placement of the stars in the universe, but in this earth when he says is there enough is there enough evidence in these oaths for you to stop for you to be you know, to be held basically literally planted in your tracks? Let's see what's been said about this and traditional scholarship in Nevada doesn't even enter the winner pool when he's actually on the new Sierra Nevada MSL Can you have written that this oath no doubt is the one that can only find greatness with people who possess intellect and pure deep intellect that think about things from Canada Nobu, aka

00:36:35--> 00:37:16

sala de Manhattan, a Shia Raja, the one who you know, Allah has granted proper intellect would come to know immediately that Allah has swarmed by things that are profoundly unique, how fewer words and how many lessons and just these few words but he swears by a budget the 10 nights then he swears by the the audit the event or the even in the odd rather. And finally by the night as it's about to disappear. And then he says is there enough of an oath and all of this for you? Just to remind you in the previous surah and the previous surah. Allah has tried to warn the disbelievers by means of warning them about the next slide. From the very beginning, attacker, Hadi thalassia. Would you even

00:37:16--> 00:37:54

Harsha. aminata. Now Seba does learner Kamiya does come in Ania, laser la junta de los Mineola Ninja, those that entire passage is warnings to those who don't believe about what is going to come on the last day that's in the previous sorta, so obviously, they're not afraid of that warning. So the only thing left to do is if they don't believe in the unseen, maybe they can be given a warning from what they can actually see. What is it that they can actually see, they can see the ruins of the nations that they pass by all the time. If you're not willing to think about these bolts, and they're not willing to think about what is ahead of you. At least think about what happened

00:37:54--> 00:37:59

yesterday, what happened before you so we find Adam taraki farfalla

00:38:00--> 00:38:34

now in this little refine, did you not already see and of course the wording here is to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Didn't you see? And when Allah speaks to His Messenger on a subtle Salaam, the messenger recites it so who also is listening. Everybody who's listening right the entire audience at that time even the disbelievers are listening. So though Ally's talking to the messenger, don't think the audience is limited to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam because his job is yet to it, he made it he he recites onto them the ayah so they're listening to So Allah is talking to him, but they are supposed to be listening and there

00:38:34--> 00:38:58

what's going on in their minds? And I'm taraki for Allah you didn't you already see how your Lord did how your Lord dealt with the nation of Iran with the group called a couple of things here the word dumb Didn't you see previous little also told us to look at something if Allah Jambo una familia pathway, the Sunnah,

00:38:59--> 00:39:35

didn't you didn't they stare at the camera, and didn't they stare at the sky and didn't stare at the mountain and didn't escape stare at the earth? They were asked to stare Nevada in Arabic yagoona in the previous slide is to stare and it's the stair like pay attention to something and think about it deeply. As you are looking at a raw item Tara is different word for seeing. And this is what you're not going to see in translation, you'll see don't they see the camel? Didn't you see what happens? So you'll see the English word See, and you won't tell what the difference is. But here a different word Rokia is used. And Torah and Arabic is used for something that you don't necessarily see with

00:39:35--> 00:40:00

your eyes. But you know how when you think about something deeply and you say I see what you're saying, right? I see. What does that mean? I understand. When I finally see what he means. You don't see what he means you understand what he means but what do you say? I see what he means you understand, so that that meaning of what is understood here. This is why it's from the job according to the Arabs. This is from the verbs of the heart. What they

00:40:00--> 00:40:14

mean by that is, it's not a physical action. It's an action that takes place in the heart and in the mind, right? So Didn't you think about is what it's saying? Didn't you reflect upon? How your how your Lord Lord dealt with? Now Allah didn't say what he did to them.

00:40:15--> 00:40:52

Allah didn't say, didn't you see what your Lord did to them? Didn't you see what happened to them? Allah says, however, the question is not not that it is kafer How did he do it today? The word How is really important, because this nation of odd that Allah is about to talk about and tell us more about, you should know something about them. They're very powerful nation. They were known for building enormous beams and pillars in construction. These are people that their people themselves were called a man. They're the features of beams and pillars themselves being good, very, very tall. Nobody goes into battle with them. Because they're very, like genetically, they're pretty strong

00:40:52--> 00:41:00

people. And a lot, you know, comments under strength like that. So it will matter to the lady, let us not miss her and let me

00:41:01--> 00:41:12

come to those. But you know, those nations that built these amazing monuments, and were so powerful and undefeatable when the Arabs would pass by the neighboring towns, they will see the ruins of these towns, right?

00:41:13--> 00:41:51

The question would come to mind they were so powerful, not what happened, but how could they be destroyed? The first question that comes is these people were so powerful? How is it possible that they were overcome? who overcame them? These were the people who used to say, you know, is there anyone stronger than us? Is there anyone that has more power than we do? So Allah asks them, his messenger to reflect Elisa to Sarah, how your Lord dealt with it. Now in this there are two things. One, there is an encouragement to the Messenger of Allah on the lohani. How is it encouragement, you think deescalation powerful, you think they have a lot of power and they can can oppress the

00:41:51--> 00:41:56

believers whenever they want. We read about that and sort of Guruji in the Latina, Mina when

00:41:58--> 00:42:32

you think they can just oppressing and get away, they were people much more powerful than them, you see how they were dealt with. So don't worry about it allows power to control them. That's one thing. On the other hand, it is a threat being issued to the Kufa so the same statement is consolation to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, and at the same time, it is a threat to the disbelievers. Interestingly enough, in the previous surah, Allah commanded His messenger to remind others but they're good. Remind, and in this surah, Allah is reminding His messengers of Allah hunting center, when he says, didn't you see? And you know, the wording is interesting, because this

00:42:32--> 00:42:58

is the last time in the Quran, we're going to find the mention of art in the coming surah sutras until the end of the most heart. There is no more mentioned. Oh, so it has been mentioned many times before? Sure. So at the at the end of that discussion, like a teacher telling the truth, didn't you see? Haven't you already thought about this? Haven't I told you so much about this already? You understand? So it's this culminating statement about these destroyed nations that is coming so eloquently in this song. And I'm Tanaka.

00:43:00--> 00:43:03

You know, in the previous rule of law told us by you, people loving

00:43:04--> 00:43:42

whoever turns away and this relieves a level of punish them and destroy them. And now not only think about how he will destroy them, here's an example of how he already destroyed them look, not just to the future, but also to the past. Let's see, they used to say By the way, just some things about it. If you don't already know there were a nation that were the third or fourth generation after New Orleans Salaam. According to pata lado de la Han. These are people from Yemen, the messenger sent to them was food on Instagram. And their famous arrogant statement was mine. I shall do min Naka. It's going to sound very familiar when I translate it for you, who is more powerful than us. Who has the

00:43:42--> 00:43:58

military capacity that we do. Who's going to take us on? We're number one. Men, I shall do men number one, that was their arrogant statement. If you can see Rahim, Allah says, Well, hello, I'm an older bahaman Latina but I have a lot of female rasuna who would

00:44:00--> 00:44:25

you know, these are the first odd and these are the people that Allah sent His messenger who to second ago who are fodder for who they light against him, and they oppose him. What can I attack with Mr. Medina, Jabari? Hi, Regina, anti Attila LA, Divina. These were people arrogant, hurting others engaged in all sorts of rebellion. And they the biggest crime they lied against the messengers a lesson to them for that Galatia Allah cave Allah.

00:44:26--> 00:44:54

Then Allah mentioned, how did he destroy even then? And how did he even crush the likes of them was on a high D site, whatever. And he turned them into nothing but news to talk about. They're just like a shocking thing. Did you remember how that happened? and enabled meaning people pass by their talents and they get scared just looking at them. Like this is the kind of destruction that can take place. Then Allah mentions the name of the earlier generation of Iran. lm Tanaka, Tanaka biard in Iran.

00:44:55--> 00:45:00

Iran is considered by some of the early generations of the fourth

00:45:00--> 00:45:37

Father's the early generations and some say no more actually the forefathers of both odd and the moon. But they're closer in lineage to talk to add actually assembled this later on. So that's why they're close to the mentioned in proximity to other say enemies the name of the first man who established their tribe and actually set up a kingship. And that's why they're called, you know, literally it'll means to make a sign made of rocks to take rocks and make a sign or a symbol out of them. That's what it refers to. And interestingly, it'll map that in the nation of Iran that will possessing of pillars possessing of pillars What that means is possessing the body strength like

00:45:37--> 00:46:14

pillars also means possessing ability to construct large pillars and beams in their construction. So even after they were destroyed, you would see remnants of those beams and those pillars, magnificent pillars and the townships of the Ashoka Nila, mahalo rose. What can I What can I add in with a mood mushroom and an atom, the effect of adding a mood was very well known amongst the Arabs Leanna de Allahu matassa, BDR an Arab, because their homes were right adjacent to the homes of the Arabs, meaning these were neighboring towns, they didn't have to go, you know, elsewhere. Now he mentioned this, because why is it like telling the Messenger of Allah over and over again, on the lohani

00:46:14--> 00:46:48

setup, the history of art in some mood, because they are in proximity to the nation, he's warning, you guys are being warned. And you know, some other people, some other messengers, when the messenger would say, the destruction is coming, they would say we've never seen anything like that. Bring it if you will, the Arabs are at a bigger advantage, because they cannot they can't actually say we've never seen anything like that. Right? They're not gonna say how is that ever gonna happen? How are we ever going to be destroyed? People have before said this before, but they can't Why not? Because they have the mood right there. They can visit the destructive towns, right? There's a lot.

00:46:48--> 00:46:54

So another means by which they could have come to Islam. What kind of what cannabis marijuana in Africa.

00:46:55--> 00:47:13

And in addition, I was going to mention Fidel, why, because they used to hear the matter of Fidel all the time, from the people of the books. So they were familiar with all three from the arts, the mood and phenomena. And these are obviously the three most often destroyed nations that are recurrently met recurrently legends in the Quran.

00:47:14--> 00:47:55

From the poetry of patience, this is just a side reference. It's been derived from this reference of pre Islamic poetry, how the even the Arabs knew Iran, like this wasn't a new name to them. And the poet says, I'd like to welcome La Jolla on I just took what extra from his poetry that they knew about that and much before them also Iran. So Iran is the older generation, the older people, and that the lamb, you know, happened to be that the likes of which had never been created in all of the cities, the word will At first, the word beloved is different from Medina shut, you know, all these different words are used in Arabic for cities, okay? But Beloved, is urban, it is used for a city

00:47:55--> 00:48:34

whose borders are defined, and a city that is ready to defend its borders. That's what a ballot is. Okay. There are other words like missile missile is a kind of city that has fortified walls on the outside, or it's like a dip. So it has, you have to actually cross over something or go down to something to enter that city that's called a missile. Not Egypt with the Egypt missile never has a phenomenon. But the Arabic word was, but here was his beloved, meaning these fortified cities, in the likes of these major civilizations, basically, when you come from the perspective of the Arabs, the likes of these people had never been seen. Nobody had seen the kind of might the kind of

00:48:34--> 00:48:57

construction power, the kind of civilization the kind of military strength that these people just displayed. Don't you see how a lot dealt with them already? Didn't you see how they were destroyed. So under the new missile, her Filipina was a mood and Latina Java sarabi Noir, and even a step further, Allah says about some mood. In other words, I am in a mood, and

00:48:58--> 00:49:40

it's a continuation Didn't you also see the case of the mood after art, and the mood of course, which messenger was sent to them. And instead of, you know, Sally, and I set up so now the mood this nation allows or just says about them and in a job will suffer a suffer is a boulder, a large, large Boulder. It's not just a rock. You know, sometimes mountains are just dirt, right? And they have rocks on them, but they're not all rock themselves. And sometimes they're chipped away, but you ever seen, you know, areas or regions where there's this large, massive, massive boulders one after the other, right? Those are solid. And you know, when you carve in Arabic, like you're carving wood, or

00:49:40--> 00:50:00

you're carving metal, or you're carving even rock, like you take a little like peg and you try to carve little by little by little or you scrape that's called Nat Nat in Arabic, but they don't do matter or know how to Allah says Java. Java means literally to drill a hole right through something to crack it open, which is more powerful.

00:50:00--> 00:50:39

Which takes more power scraping and scratching, or drilling through and cracking open and breaking. Right, the more powerful word is used allies, illustrating the mood wasn't just your average just carving out of stone, they had the power to crack rock open and bore a hole right through it. Go right through the rock, right Java's sucker. And imagine there are no drills, there are no massive like, you know, equipment and machinery, that is how, you know, the hydraulics are giving the pressure to drill these kinds of holes, what's there that they have manpower, these are incredibly strong people. So unless his job was sasara, they would even crack holes and drill holes into

00:50:39--> 00:51:14

boulders bend. And by the way, finesse, also Java means to crack and break and drill holes through. And then finally to get final shape, meaning there is scraping, but at the end of the hard labor part. So there's the finishing touches, they would also put on it been in the valleys. Now the word word in Arabic, is different from just the word Valley Valley just means descent into, you know, lower pipe patch of land, in the middle of mountains, etc. Why didn't Arabic was used for any place where water flows. So one of the things we learned from this is they were at a place where there was irrigation, meaning if it rained in the desert, these are still the Arab lands, if it rained in the

00:51:14--> 00:51:50

desert, there are some patches of land and water settles. And of course, if water stands there and makes a lake or some sort of a body of water, then necessarily people are going to camp out around there. So these people had a place where they had irrigation, meaning they were financially and as far as their work, what prosperities concerned they had means taken care of. And they themselves were very skilled in constructing and building their infrastructure. And also OLED refers to whether or not according to many of them have a signal, because when in Arab literature before Islam, when you said the valleys, they refer to the valleys of the towns that were destroyed. So Didn't you see

00:51:50--> 00:51:54

that they even carved these amazing carvings out of and work

00:51:55--> 00:52:35

now the way they have been described what will read what shall Canada mahalo writes well whom Paul Masada some moobus Jeddah whom this magenta him rather sammut when RB when Iran bin Salman new so he traces their lineage all the way to what's the last time you heard Norman Islam and you heard it on in there somewhere too. So this the mood are actually later descendants of odd themselves according to Ashoka, Annie and further up descendants of Iran and even beyond that descendants of new Elisa and those who had survived. So these nations, some of them the Xena, Java, safavid word and finally, are phenomena outside it's like the climax. And for our own the possessor of pegs. Literally what it

00:52:35--> 00:52:39

says is the possessor of peg so we know about three nations in the surah,

00:52:40--> 00:53:17

who's also called Iran, then assembled and now fit on and unless has about them, the one possessing pegs. And what does that mean? It's been interpreted in three ways. Firstly, pegs are a means by which tents are placed in the ground. And when ancient militaries travel rather, even when modern militaries travel, when they set up camp, literally, what do they do? Pay attention to the ground. So if you're coming from an aerial view, and you know, an army's camped out, you would see just an ocean of tents, right? That means that army is on the move, right? So if Iran is known for his massive armies, so he's called the one of pegs. That's one way in which that is understood.

00:53:19--> 00:53:54

The second way it's understood is by means of his torture. One of the ways that he tortured people who rebelled against him and some narrations that he did the Stasi or the lohana is that he would crucify them and peg them, literally peg them to planks behind, right, and he would literally peg their limbs into the woods, right, and this was his means of torture. And you know, in the Quran, when we find that we suddenly been necromage Marine, I will crucify all of you, and I will chop off your your, your hands and your lives, so that the limbs are chopped off, the hands and legs are chopped off, and then the rest of the body is pegged to the crucified, right. So that's one of the

00:53:54--> 00:54:32

ways meaning for his torture he was known. Then finally, if you look at ancient Egyptian, Egyptian history, and hieroglyphics and things like that, the pharaohs prided themselves over construction. So a lot of their images of their kings and of their generals and of their ministers are images of someone holding something like a peg or a hammer. Right? So they were known for their constructive power. So you notice all three of them have some way of another some manifestation of construction, or powerful construction. So there's a mad without it on the dotted line mad, then Java suffer, and then outta here, right? So all of them were magnificent builders. Why is that important for the

00:54:32--> 00:55:00

Arabs to hear? Because they're not builders at all? Right? They're not builders at all. So the people being talked about now that Allah has already destroyed are far more capable than the Arabs who think they can get away with rebelling against this messenger. Salallahu alaihe salam. So by mentioning these nations, Allah has kind of put them in their place. He's put them in their place. look at why don't you think about those people, you're gonna compare yourself to them. Those great nations, the ones that may you just get scared passing by their towns and

00:55:00--> 00:55:22

The remnants of them are still I mentioned, like, they leave Hey, buy in you, they terrorize you. Even, you know, the remains of films, you know, monuments, you know, the pyramids and the Sphinx and all that stuff, even now, it's just, it's terrifying. And people from all over the world go to there to get it, you know, they're scared to go deep inside, you know, something might get them or something and people watch the fascination with them is still there.

00:55:24--> 00:56:02

To this day, to this day, if there's a new exhibit from Egypt that comes and visits the museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York or California or something, people swarm to it. They swarm to it, because it's still still an obsession. It's a problem. Anyhow, a lot as it was at the end of now this discussion, he's about to wrap up. How did it look? Why we already were asked to wonder why how did Allah destroy them? But now it was gonna answer another question without asking, why you don't know destroy? Why did Allah destroy these nations, and levena bajo invalid? Those were the ones that had rebelled da da means to go beyond your limits with an urge to rebel against them. You know,

00:56:02--> 00:56:38

there's one thing to break the rules because you were desperate. You broke the rules you feel bad about it, then there's you broke the rules because you were in an act of defiance against the authority. This is totally on right and left invalid. You know, who is this rebellion against? Think about that. This rebellion is of course against Allah himself against his messengers, his messengers who didn't have any armies behind them. All they had was words of warning, so it's easy to rebel against the oiler doesn't want us to do that right. Oh, don't kill the camera. Okay, yeah. And then they'll kill the camera and laugh about it too. But she can write that's how they'll do things. So

00:56:38--> 00:57:11

the idea was we're gonna rebel and we're going to make a mockery of the the guidelines and the instructions that have been placed before us. Because we feel like we have the power to do so what you know the idea, what are you going to do about it? What are you going to do this, this this idea, we have the muscle we can do whatever we want. This is what led them to their destruction. So let's have a look at the data. Whoa. Now I said this rebellion, of course is against the messengers and by by rebelling against the messengers you're really rebelling against a lot. But alas, I still believe they rebelled in the lens. A lot could have just said they rebelled. But he said, these are the ones

00:57:11--> 00:57:50

who rebelled in the lens in the lens. You know what that means? When they rebelled against Allah? Where did the consequences the evil consequences start being seen in the land, the river, the revelation of logins, the instruction or logins is for whose benefit is for the benefit of the people themselves? When they don't take that and they rebel against it, then where do you find the corruption first in the land, so that what they did you know what lessons in one place in them who either unphysical your rebellion is only really directed against your own selves, you're not rebelling against me, you're only doing it against your own self, you're not really publishing

00:57:50--> 00:58:29

anything. So here we find Finn Bella, this is a reference to the consequences that occur when you rebel against a lot this corruption that takes place in the land. And to this day, the simplest instructions of a law are not that deep, you know, in rd there are some deep gamma fifth about that, that are very, you know, involved, right, exactly the outcome of Hajj or the precise gram of you know, sacrificing the animal, etc, etc. Those are intricate laws. But there are some very basic moral principles that all prophets were given very, very basic principles. And you know, what's interesting Muslims and non Muslims alike, even the Muslim will be interested in following the

00:58:29--> 00:58:33

intricate details of the deen but you know what they skip over

00:58:34--> 00:59:17

the really big principles of this Deen that have always been there from all of the profits like not cheating in business, like being kind to the neighbor, like not, you know, if you have the power to do so to not muscle your way and be be unjust just because you can write or to you know, to lie and to cheat and to steal. These are the basic teachings that would keep rebellion and destruction from a nation. But they rebelled against the law and therefore rebelled against each other Philby, that extra fee, hmm, and facade. And then as a consequence, we find two things to be on first. And then the next thing and as a result, they caused an abundance of the cause a huge uprise or increase in

00:59:17--> 00:59:53

the quantity of what in those cities and facade corruption deterioration, mean, they've built these beautiful buildings. But at the same time, there's the ugliest injustice and the ugliest tyranny. Do you see that even today, you'll have a society that looks very beautiful, the construction is amazing. The roads and highways are beautiful, but if you walk in the streets, you will see just the most ugliest injustice, you might see racism, you might see homelessness, you might see all kinds of oppression taking place. But when you look at it from the helicopter, oh my god, this is such a beautiful city. Right? Even tourists when they go to someplace like Washington, DC, let's talk about

00:59:53--> 01:00:00

our own country. I go to Washington, DC, one of the most beautiful places to visit in the country, right? Amazing monuments, very beautifully laid out.

01:00:00--> 01:00:13

City. But then the tour guide will tell you don't take a left here take a right here, because there's some parts of DC you don't want to walk by. Right? It's right next to them as beautiful things, you have the corruption and you have this deterioration. So Mrs. Photography, her

01:00:14--> 01:00:47

first little fee and look at California, for example. I'm not talking about the financial crisis in California, you know, some parts of California, some of the most expensive real estate in the world. And I mean, gold costs cheaper than land in California, right? It's extremely expensive. And, you know, how do people afford these housing? And then, you know, in those expensive neighborhoods, there's also a Walmart and a target and all that, who works there, and the people that work that you think they can afford a house there? A lot of those people actually live like 2030 miles out, and they take a bus and Where do they live in like 10 houses looks like the third world. You won't even

01:00:47--> 01:01:28

believe it's the United States. It's crazy. It's just crazy. And that's the that's the reality of bullying. When you rebel against Allah. When you close and justice on the earth, what gets increased and facade, they caused an abundance of rottenness and corruption and deterioration in the land. And at this point, when the entire land becomes you know, like food when it becomes completely corrupt, you wash it away, you get rid of it. It is at that point that Allah unleashed his punishment and this is the I shall tada we'll close with for sub de la him Rob buka, Sal, tada, very, very strong I end up on the word sub has occurred before in this series we read under sub sub sub in Arabic is not

01:01:28--> 01:02:00

just to poor, right, that's a fraud just too poor. But somebody said like for example, take a whole bucket and just pile it all all at once. Let it just slam down on him. Right? Unless he says that Allah is though just slammed up completely drenched them out all at once. In what let's see what he drenched upon them. I mean, other book your Lord. Now the word Kai's into its comes from the singular you who is Allah talking to Allah, His Messenger sallallahu sallam, Allah is telling his messenger what he did to those nations back then, but who's also listening, like we said,

01:02:01--> 01:02:38

right, the audience for listening. And for listening, boos, Lord is this who side is young? He's on the side of Muhammad Sallallahu. I said, don't you think he's by himself? Don't you get the idea that he's just giving you this message and you can do whatever to him and his followers. He's got no backing. He's got no muscle. He's got no likes of who then are then around behind them that you should be scared of. You have your tribe behind you. You have your numbers behind you. Don't you think like that, because who punish those nations, your Lord by means and that is almost threatening then he comes to the support of his messengers on the level and he said he didn't even say a lie. He

01:02:38--> 01:03:19

said Rob buka your master he unleashed he he poured onto them completely drench them with the whip salt. Salt is a leather whip that is used it's in according to some linguists. This was the worst kind of torture because it doesn't it doesn't cause bleeding inside It only hurts the skin. And of course what's the most part you feel pain most it's the skin. Once you once the skin is gone, your limbs can suffer but you won't feel it. You won't feel it. So the thing that they feared the most was salt. So unless as he unleashed his entire salt you know it could have been wave by wave by wave, that entire whip gets unleashed. So tada all at one time. There's another word gender in

01:03:19--> 01:04:01

Arabic, right? flesh we do our hidden agenda. Agenda right so 100 lashes but that's a different word agenda. That's actually the lesser that's actually lesser in pain. Salt is tougher in pain. Allah says he unleashed his enormous pain his whip against them. But you know if you know anything about whipping it occurs multiple times. So let's say as you hit with them really really hard but how many times what but is this the only way they're gonna get this is here but then there's a bigger risk coming next, right so actually, this is tied according to somewhere in number with a shuffling when what the first week the the odd one is here, the even ones coming It's going to make it even later

01:04:01--> 01:04:41

on this month. So for some Dynamo buka sotah will read something that we find in conceito subunits so for that if I see something really powerful shiwen other we shall leave under the NASA mbcr Nadia to quit just set up a stack Westerman a sublet enzyme, Allah did not just say he descended his punishment upon them. He said he threw it upon them, he unleashed it upon them, meaning a weapon supposed to hit a part of you. But if it's poured onto you, it come overwhelms you. You will drowned in this one whipping from Alaska. And it's amazing that this language is used because it illustrates overwhelming punishment. And the last nation to be mentioned in the sequence was Fidel and how was

01:04:41--> 01:04:42

he punished?

01:04:43--> 01:04:59

overwhelmed and dressed. The whip of Allah came upon him immediately. Right. So for somebody who mamuka So Tom, I said this last time but we have to connect it to the next and we'll close in Sharla. In this there was a warning about the previously destroyed nations. The previous little was telling us about the future destruction that is coming.

01:05:01--> 01:05:12

The only thing left is what's going to happen to these courage. The ones that aren't listening. You know what Allah says about them in the next aisle, he says and then the next passage continues after that, in Dhaka, Libya.

01:05:13--> 01:05:54

There is no doubt your Lord is sitting, waiting in ambush, waiting for ambush. milsatcom rasa is to find a place where you, you keep guard and you wait for the enemy and then when the enemy is in the right most vulnerable position, you hit them. So Allah says, As for the crusher concerned, Allah is already leading to attack them. He's already in position subhana wa Taala to attack this panel. So after mentioning all this incredible destruction, he didn't just let them slide he let him he led messenger note in Rebecca loving Assad, it's at the verbs this punishment is on the verge, he's already in position. He's already waiting in ambush subhana wa tada mela which will protect us from

01:05:54--> 01:06:01

his punishment, subclinical llamo be handed a shadow intact the stuff we're gonna do with it, after they'll sort of continue with the rest of it.
