00:00:26--> 00:00:27

while he was happy

00:00:29--> 00:00:38

he la de la Medina Minh home Amina Latina Emma no Amina slowly heart but our sobbing Huck, whatever so b sub i mean, yeah, I mean

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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. I also will let him initiate on the regime for mmm an alpha what Taka we were going I have I am we are up to the fifth ayah of so too late.

00:00:51--> 00:01:14

It begins and a rough translation as for the one who and then as for the one who gave and worded evil from himself or protected himself or was, you know, in common English we say God conscious. Okay? What? God had taqwa, okay? But before we get talking about taqwa, we have to talk about the word APA, in the Arabic language, the word data, data, like

00:01:15--> 00:01:58

Zika, for example, that's used in the meaning of giving our pa is a horse, it's more precise than it is to give a lot or it's not to give something smallest to given much abundance. This is the word used by Allah when he gives his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam alkota. So he says in our cleaner, not at a NACA, but our cleaner. And Cofer The other thing especially specific about the meaning of alpha, there are different words for giving in the Arabic language all used in the Quran, many of them actually, now holla ha, da, da, da, da, WA have a fab idea of the different words that are used for giving. But this particular word means to give something in response to something first

00:01:58--> 00:02:39

of all, it's not necessarily work compensation. It may be you liked something someone did, and you gave them a gift, it was a reaction, but you gave far and beyond that was which was expected this is airport. So let's speaks about the one who gave a lot and gave us a favor and gave you in bonus even more than was required of him. But the question that arises from the verb is gave who and gave what you see the precedent for that has already been established in previous solos. So when the Koran establishes a precedent, it doesn't explain itself, it leaves the subject matter open. We started with that today, with the word young, sharp, right when they lead Ayesha, but in the previous surah

00:02:39--> 00:03:23

when lady Eva Yahushua ha there was a holiday because it was explaining it. This is what I doesn't need to explain it because the previous law has already established a precedent. Go to sutras before sootel ballad has already established a precedent on where to give, right it's already established a precedent on where you should be spending your money for Cora Coubertin, Yeoman, the masaba tinea team and macrobertson miskeen and the Mk robata. All of those categories of giving. So here it's suffice to say he gave a lot. That's all that needs to be said. Then he moves on and says what Taka, what Taka, Taka or Ithaca actually is to save yourself is to save yourself from from evil or the

00:03:23--> 00:04:03

consequences of evil, if you want to put it in its rawest form is to save yourself from harm and to save yourself from the consequences of harm. Okay. It's used in the context even of you know, protecting yourself from fire. A lot of things just talk about Dakota himself. He says what happened now and let you read that in caffeine in fear fire. He talks about fearing the Day of Judgment with tuku Yeoman lethargy is enough soon enough. Sencha so taqwa is also done of the day. Allah speaks about having fear of bringing harm even to the relations that are established between the wombs or by the wombs of our mothers. So let's have what are called La and la de casa Luna v while our hand

00:04:04--> 00:04:47

and our hand but the collar homies by extension, what Apple or ham there, so be cautious of beware of beware of Allah harm the relationship of the wombs of the mothers, all relationship established through that connection. Anyhow, in this ayah to first and foremost the the fundamental attitude and dukkha is not fear alone. It is to do something or take an action out of fear of falling into some kind of trouble. Fears hope that's just a feeling like you know, you you hear a loud sound, you feel hope. You hear a loud sound and you take cover. Now you're doing taqwa, meaning you took an action based on a fear, right? This is what it comes from your IRA, which literally means to protect

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

yourself, to protect yourself, protect someone else. So unless there's some from the same route, he says, cool and fullcycle or illegal now protect yourselves and your families. So this this is what they call from if the album

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

That pattern means to actually take precaution to protect yourself. So the question is he gave, and then he had fear, he wanted to protect himself. Now the one who gives Usually, it's interesting statement because the one who usually gives, they feel very good about giving.

00:05:17--> 00:05:56

They're not afraid anymore. They used to be man I did I think I secured my place in general, I did I mean, I gave a big check at this fundraiser, I gave a lot, I have nothing more to fear, right. But the attitude of this person is he gave and after he gave, he was afraid. He became he became wary, he became this cautious, careful. The other thing also, that's, that's really interesting in the psyche of the person who gives, if he gives for the wrong reason, or she gives for the wrong reason, this happens in deviant religions. And in some cases, it happens among Muslims, and they do they bring this deviation to Islam. What is this what I'm talking about? People give a lot of charity to

00:05:56--> 00:05:58

compensate for their bad deeds.

00:05:59--> 00:06:31

Right. So they'll give a lot of money to build a machine, but they don't want to give up the liquor store either. Right? Or they they're involved in something grossly, grossly, grossly harm. And they feel bad about it. So they'll pay a lot to an orphanage, or they'll give a lot of South Dakota like the earthquake relief, or something like that. So they're giving but they don't fear. Allah wants you to give but Allah also wants you to have Taqwa. But I'm an alpha, what Taka you have to have both. And you know, sometimes there's a person who has talked about what

00:06:32--> 00:07:12

he doesn't give. He doesn't give. Now this sequence is lucky like Malala commented very beautifully. He said this is not the only place we find the sequence of first giving them feeling afraid. This also occurs insulted absolutely insane. Allah azza wa jal there says in a MOOC only wodgina Nuri domain comm jazza and when I show Korra in a half an hour bien IO Managua, semcon Pereira, we're giving you we're feeding you only to seek the face of Allah over there. There is a the phrase was in mamanuca mukim li what Hilah we're feeding you to seek a less face, we don't want to see a smile on your face. That's not what we're doing it. We want to see a lovelies with us, that's what it is.

00:07:12--> 00:07:52

What Hola. In this surah will find again was in love with the raw word he will be the same phrase will come up again. But in that in social insan when we give when we give seeking a last face meaning his contentment, his pleasure, by the way, this word which means face, it's a beautiful expression in the Arabic language, the brothers of Yusuf Alayhi Salam also use this expression, okay Yahuwah because you know that your your father's face will turn to you now, when they would get rid of use of wind get get them out of the way. They said, Your father's face will now turn to you What does that mean? Your father will look upon you with love and affection. Your father will have this

00:07:52--> 00:08:28

this, you know, loving look towards you, meaning he'll bring his attention to you, His mercy will shower upon you. And that's the kind of attention that this one this person wants from Allah xojo they want you know, when an important person comes in meets you when an important person comes and shakes your hand or, you know famous person or celebrity of sorts, or an authority. These man you know who talked to me today, you know, I talked to on the phone today, you know came over to my office, the CEO of this company or that company, a big person gave you attention. Whose attention does this person want a man Alpha Kappa? He wants the attention of Allah azza wa jal that's where

00:08:28--> 00:09:09

you find seeking the face of a lot towards the end of the surah right. But then they're afraid just like they're in an aha formula Bina Yama, Busan Korea. It is we who fear will no doubt about it. We fear from our Lord a day a horrifying a saddening and overly depressing there are rules and rules and very strong word used in that surah. Anyhow, coming back to this one. So Kenny Rahim Allah writes a better meaning this ayah means better am Allah Who would you hire, he just gave up his money just kept exhausting his wealth in all phases of good meaning all kinds of good. He could just keep file he was looking for things to give good call, you know, good give us wealth to it was like,

00:09:09--> 00:09:42

you know, someone who really wants to make it big in dystonia, and they say, Man, I got some money. I don't know how to use it. So they go to their business buddies. Got any good business ideas? Where should I be putting my money right now? The markets kind of bad? Where should I invest? Right? So this idea of putting your money in a good place, or finding you know, what's what's called diversifying your portfolio? Right? That's called the virtual hanger. So you don't put all your money in one you know investment. You put a little here put a little here put a little here but what is this person doing? Ashoka Ramallah comments, he will do he'll hide all kinds of faces of good

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

things. He's maybe I should put a little here, a little here, a little here a little here. So I have this diversified portfolio when I go to Alaska. It's incredible. This mindset that if you directed towards a light brings a yield and people directed towards dunya to bring a yield for themselves in this dunya

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

Anyhow, a samurai he also offers some really remarkable insight on the ayah. He says, I'm an aqua What does God I don't know Allah and no Taka and

00:10:10--> 00:10:14

he says he gave and he was afraid. It illustrates he was afraid of being cheap.

00:10:16--> 00:10:32

That's why he gave. He gave and he as he was afraid, meaning while becomes highly he gave as he was afraid, meaning he was afraid of becoming those who are cheap who hold on. My teacher used to give this example about our relationship with Allah. When we give, is it really our money we're giving?

00:10:33--> 00:11:00

Is it really ours? No. But we know think I've told you this experiment with your kids before try it. It's a lot of fun. You get a lollipop, you get a candy, something nice, right? And you're about to eat it and your child sees it. What does your child say? Can I have it? Can I have that? Can I please have it just a little? And he said, Okay, okay. You can hold it. You can you can you can have it just a little piece. You give it to them, just to hold. And then you ask for it back?

00:11:01--> 00:11:04

Can I have it back? What do they say? Mine?

00:11:06--> 00:11:08

All of us within seconds it becomes yours.

00:11:09--> 00:11:50

Allah asks us for money, Allah SS carbon hassanal Give me a loan, beautiful loan. He gives he says Let me tell you a business transaction, the Java 10. He gives us all these terminologies. Why? Because we start believing what? It's ours. It's ours. It's not his it's ours. So we start thinking where the owners, that's what happens with money. Money is the is the man is the essential thing that makes you start thinking you're in charge. And who have you replaced psychologically? Maybe in your office, either you still say Laila heilala, maybe in your Salah, you still say Allahu Akbar. But what is your heart testifying to every time you look at the account balance? What's your heart

00:11:50--> 00:12:15

testifying to? Where's your heart going? It's already testified that I own this. Well, this is mine. This belongs to me. Right? This is the attitude that Ally's striking at the heart, alpha Dakota, he gave, and he was afraid, afraid he might start thinking this belongs to him. So he gave lots of it. He gave lots of it. The other thing also, it's really interesting is you put a lot of money in a shorter deal.

00:12:16--> 00:12:52

You put a little bit of money when you're not sure if it's gonna, you know, maybe it's a good investment. I'm not so sure. So I'm not going to put all my savings in it, I'll put a little bit. But if it's a guaranteed investment, what do you do? Like guaranteed guaranteed, you put it in this man, this is the way to go. It's a short shot isn't good real estate, it's coming up the areas I want to buy in this current land, this property, this this area, I'm going to invest in this thing or that thing. Why? Because it's a shorter deal. So the amount we give increases when what what we start believing that it's a shorter deal. And the more you like, there are other better places this

00:12:52--> 00:13:30

could be spent, the less you get, right. And so this person fears before my other instinct kicks in, and I say no, no, no, maybe I shouldn't give this much before he even gets to that point. He just gives up Ah, this is his attitude. And so as I was in when he described it when he speaks about this, actually, another couple of things we should talk about here is the sequence. Usually, APA is giving a lot it's not even giving a little after I said is a hyperbolized form of the words. So this guy's giving a lot. But you would think duck walk comes first and then you do x and you give a lot. Right? So it seems like duck walk comes first and then you give a lot. But what is the

00:13:31--> 00:13:50

alpha? What it mentions the giving a lot first and taqwa second mentioned step one second. And this is part of the style of this entire surah. Allah azza wa jal mentions the conclusion first, and then the route second. And we'll find this throughout this whole It's beautiful. Even what's the conclusion? this dunya? The Astra

00:13:51--> 00:14:32

yahara He says, and so what should we mentioned first, in your first, second, when we come to that ayah What does he say? We're in Elena, then errata. When Allah He mentioned First, the hereafter then he mentioned the first so this is part of the beautiful, remarkable style of this little. You want to reach that point? What's the seed? You want to see the tree think about the root the root is taqwa. And then finally, even the taqwa has a root. Even taqwa has another root what's even before taqwa what's the next part was sadaqa. Bill cosna was Chicago pasta and he confirmed he confirmed the truth in the ultimate good and of course now is a follow up email in Arabic. You know, he said

00:14:32--> 00:14:37

about a beer or you know, have been the feminine version of Goddess Cobra sohara.

00:14:39--> 00:15:00

Here cosna pasta is the feminine equivalent of a kebab. In English we call these comparative or superlative adjectives. It's an adjective. So Allah says, He confirmed the truth in the best possible thing. And I'm not even saying thing actually the best possible and in English it leaves best possible what best possible What a lucky

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

The adjective but not a precise term. Allah didn't say he confirmed the truth in Ghana, he confirmed the truth in La Ilaha Illa. Allah, He confirmed the truth in the Hereafter, he confirmed the truth in the beauty of Sharia, he confirmed the truth in obeying Allah and following the messenger. So I saw him, he did all of those things. And since there are so many things, he confirmed, the best thing to do is to summarize all of them in the most comprehensive term, and personnel. So you find among our son if they say things like when we when they interpret a listener, they'll say, I'll post it Allah, Allah, I'll post it and Jana, the ultimate thing is gender. The ultimate thing is the

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

kalimat La ilaha illallah wa Taala tomasulo the following of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam giving to the poor, they started listing all these good deeds, but Allah did not list them. Why? Because he's implying what all of them. And remember I said in the beginning of this surah, Allah wants you to think he leaves the the the scope of thought open for you covers covers what gave gave who gave what, right? Similarly confirmed the good, what good, what ultimate good? What does it confirm? Now think of all the things that alone want you to think are the best. And here's the thing. This is a very important point that Ally's teaching us here. Very important point. You have a

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

person who thinks something is good, but doesn't do it anyway.

00:16:16--> 00:16:22

You tell them don't you think praying is good? Yeah. Why don't you pray? I don't know, man. I know it's good. I know, I should do it. I just don't do it.

00:16:23--> 00:16:41

They know it's good. They say it's good, too. They don't even say it's bad. They say it's good, but they just don't do it does the trick is to say it's good to confirm the truth in it, and then to act upon it also, to do that. Also, this is real, just do you know, if you say fire burns, I know it burns, and then you touch it anyway.

00:16:42--> 00:17:24

That means either two things, either you were lying. You didn't think it burns? Or you're not very smart. But you're insane. It's a sign of insanity, isn't it? That you say it burns and you still touch it? You still touch it? And I see so that what's the same thing to confirm the truth in something is to now it leads you to action directly after but the fundamental you know theme of this surah was action in the Satya calm. Russia which says effort, effort. Now understand the benefit of this sequence in one more way. First thing was giving. Second thing was taqwa Third thing was confirming the ultimate good alpha what the call was sadhaka. Because now three things right? These

00:17:24--> 00:18:06

are actually it seems like they're in reverse order. Because first you confirm the truth. First you come to La ilaha illAllah. Then you develop taqwa. And then you give but they're mentioned in exact reverse order. Which of the confirming the truth is in your heart. Isn't that the case? taqwa part of turquoise in your heart part of the equation your actions are for giving, giving is where action. So one of these words is in your heart, one of these words is part action part in the heart, the other word is purely action, what was the central theme of this action, so that you can so what word is placed closest to you come up with the verb among alpha, Taka and sub the car that is closest to

00:18:06--> 00:18:44

action is put first, this is part of the Bulava and the eloquence of the Quran, the word that is most consistent in proximity. And then from there the least consistent with this word the farthest from this word is the farthest from the word Saudi right. So this is part of the eloquence and subtlety of the even the sequence within these words. Another comment we find from chef father Salah Hassan Dora, he said something interesting about the nature of the individual versus the nature of society, for an individual for an individual, the sequences he confirms the truth. Then he has taqwa fear of consequence. And then finally he becomes giving. This is when thinking about an individual

00:18:44--> 00:18:53

but when you think about a society, to you know human beings, they always think about themselves. But if they if we want to live as a civilization, you know, one of the first things you have to give up,

00:18:54--> 00:19:26

you can't have everything for yourself, you have to contribute back to society in every which way. To be part of a society you have to give, you can't be part of a society without giving. So giving comes first on a societal scale. And then after giving, that's obviously one of the immunity even talking about Islamic Society and the society if you want to be part of a civilization, you have to give. The second thing you have to do is you have to abide by the law. When you come into society, you have to give and you have to abide by the law, you have to be afraid of the consequences of breaking the law. What is that?

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

And finally, the ideal society will be the one in which the citizens give they abide by the law. But they take that final step and make it the ideal society. They confirm the truth, which is what Islam the ultimate truth. So the final evolution of a society is what sadaqa will first know so the progression of an individual is one way and the progression of society is in reverse. It's an interesting comment made by Dr. Father solid a samurai in regards to this ayah now, for a moment appa Taka was sadaqa Bill husana

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

We'll read something that Shakuni rocky mahalo wrote in, in his remarkable tafsir vertical Kadir aka haccombe, la la de la. When he says, He confirmed the truth he interprets that to mean he gave the right of Allah that He recognized was binding upon him. Meaning he realized what he gives isn't his its allies right over him. Allah demands he gives you wealth, and since then sprint, then then spend Hassan will be Allahu taala, who says, out of sin communicably he he gave or he confirmed the truth that man called me he rather that was deep in his heart was that the kaabil hosana ab La ilaha illa Allah and you confirm the ultimate good which is to confirm La ilaha illa Allah will be he called

00:20:40--> 00:21:16

the hug was sent me the hockenson He also said the same thing. And Mujahid says Bill upasana. As I mentioned before, the ultimate good refers to an agenda. We'll call as AWS lambda Salatu was the cat was sown. And other said, The Zell is a businessman said this ultimate good is what he confirmed the value and good in salah and nzqa. And so meaning obedience to Allah, meaning obedience to Allah, but the first according that show, can you find our ruler, meaning the first the right of Allah binding upon him? That is the first you could because when you think about that, and all of these things come under it, right? All of these things, meaning the Salah, there's a guy that all of those things

00:21:16--> 00:21:24

fall under the right of a lot of puns. So that's how he interprets what's up. Because now if he does this now the words began

00:21:26--> 00:22:10

with a comma, as for the one who this is called hellofresh, shop calamata shop shot, conditional statement as for the one who does this, da da, da, da da, then this will happen for him right. So now the then part is coming from then if he fulfills these conditions, then what's going to happen first no, yes, zero who Linnaeus law then we will make ease for him. We will facilitate for him Who's we? It is a lot as always, I'm speaking. He says we will make ease for him. In other words, until he makes easy, it's not easy. Until he makes easy it stays difficult. But for the person who makes this commitment number one Allah makes it makes it easy for him but he doesn't even stop

00:22:10--> 00:22:21

there. He says then use raw use raw is the feminine equivalent of a sir ICER means the easiest, the easiest. So Allah says I will make the easiest easy for him.

00:22:22--> 00:22:26

Actually, he says I will make the easiest really easy for him.

00:22:27--> 00:23:11

Now the way you're thinking about good deeds now according to allow his origin allows gift to this person is he finds doing good things What? Easy, and he finds them the easiest thing to do. Meaning doing bad things he finds hard. And the easiest, the most natural thing that comes to him is doing good things. Can you imagine what a gift is from Allah? Most of us when we do good things, it's hard. When we do bad things, it's what it's easy. That's easy. Good things are hard. But this attitude appa Taka was a doctor Cabo SNA guess what gift you get in this dunya Allah will make the easiest thing easy upon you meaning your attitude about it will change and it will be the easiest

00:23:11--> 00:23:49

thing facilitated for you so hon Allah now what is this and by the way in Arabic for ease and are on tours are used Yes. Here in Hagen like who are Elijah Hagen. You see, it means a task that is done without any difficulty. He means a task that you are given that is way beneath your skill set. Like if you give a calculus professor or a math problem that says what's one plus one that will be Hey, in a second insert, Come on, give me something serious, right? That's way too easy for him. But yes, he means a task which may be up to your skill, but you can perform it without falling into any difficulty even though it's at your level or at your capacity. It's still you you can follow it

00:23:49--> 00:24:31

without any difficulty that the fear of this we find in the promise of a lot to us in SoTL Hodge when he says wha la confit demon Hodge, we did not put for you at all in this religion, any difficulty constriction whatsoever. We didn't put any difficulty in it whatsoever. For some people prayer is very hard. Prayer is very hard. can't wake up. gotta finish quickly. As soon as they get into it. They start hyperventilate, ventilating like I gotta get this over with you know, for some people prayer is hard. For the Prophet, it is subtle, Sadam everything was hard except what prayer, his biggest desires. Why? During the Torah to NFS Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, the coolness of my

00:24:31--> 00:24:51

eyes, my relaxation, my comfort, my escape was pleased were in the salon. This is a new year Sudoku linear spa. Now, a lot promised His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when we yes you can in your salon. We find this I also when we Asuka will use raw, I will make the easiest thing easy for you. So the law.

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

Allah is giving us the same option. But there's a difference. There Allah said one who yes heruka here he says

00:25:00--> 00:25:32

Sir, sir, yes, zero. There is a scene extra here. When the Lord promised His Messenger he said, I will make easy for you. Okay? But here he says soon I will make easy for him soon. For His Messenger He did not say soon, but for us for any other person aspiring to reach this ease. He says soon Why? The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his content, and his heart is already in this direction. And he's not at his not at unrest with his Lord. So when you say soon, why do you say soon to someone

00:25:34--> 00:25:58

to help them calm down, right? Because they're not at rest. They're they're perturbed. It's coming soon. It's coming soon. Right? Though it's a way of easing you. So it's showing that the nature of the relationship between a lion His messengers, and Alexa is very tranquil. And we were not that tranquil. So we want to rush to it. So Allah gives us more consolation when he says, sir, yes, you know who he will give, he will make ease for him.

00:26:00--> 00:26:33

The Arabs used to talk about the horse in the horse is hard to ride without a saddle and the seed and the rains. When you hook up the horse, totally what is a comfortable ride? They would say Yes, sir. Well for us, now, it's easy to ride. That's how the word yesterday was originally used. So what ally is saying is I will make all the arrangements for you to do the good deed. The horse will be totally prepared. All you got to do is just sit there and move the rope a little that's all you got to do. All the arrangements for you to perform well and to do the things that will elevate your status with Allah will be made easy for you all the doors will be opened. All the doors will be

00:26:33--> 00:26:59

open. Yeah. gyla hoomin Emily Yusra, whoever has taqwa of Allah, Allah will make in any every one of his decisions will make some ease for him. When I was in high school, I asked him to provide him from where you couldn't even imagine. He'll start opening doors you didn't think even existed? All you get this attitude you start seeing how Allah starts making things easy for you. Similarly, we find in the Hadith narrated in the body, the messenger sallallahu, Sallam Emmylou, get to work,

00:27:01--> 00:27:22

get to work, work, do things do good things. Why does he say that for Kowloon? Maya, Maya sorrow Nima Haleakala because everyone has been made comfortable with, everyone has been predisposed. And certain things have been, you know, made easy for him, for them, the things for which they have been created. And also, from a human nature point of view, the thing you do a lot gets easy for you.

00:27:23--> 00:27:59

You go to work every day. somebody asks you, how do you do it, man? You've been doing for 10 years, right? You say I just it's just no big deal. It's just work. Just do it. When you've been going to work for two days, you used to wake up at 1130 go to sleep at like two in the morning. And then all of a sudden you got a job. You got to get up at five, get there by seven. Right in the first week isn't hard. It's after 10 years, does it get easy? It does, doesn't it? It's a matter of conditioning yourself. And also the person who thinks it's very hard. This is a very important point, the person who thinks it's very, very hard.

00:28:00--> 00:28:03

You know what happens to them. They end up failing and losing their job.

00:28:05--> 00:28:42

When they're obviously man, it's so hard to get to work on time. It's so hard to get to work on time. I can't do this. It's too early, when they keep telling themselves that guess what do they get to work early? No, it's called efficacy in psychology. Allah says about this person is comes but what does he have to do? He has to accept the fact that he has to do this. He has to accept that fact. He can't complain about it anymore. were the words that he accepts the fact was sadaqa will hosta he confirmed the truth in the ultimate good, then we made use. So you have to accept reality. Once you accept it, I have to be there work. Now I have to take actions accordingly. Then it'll

00:28:42--> 00:29:06

happen. When you begin with a defeatist attitude. Man, this is hard. It's never going to become easy. When you come at it with the strong attitude. Allah will make easy it will be feel easy to you and allow on top of that, we'll make it easy for you. So Pamela, so it's an it's an incredible lesson we're learning about our change in attitude and obedience to Allah azza wa jal. We find many, many places in Quran where Allah mentions making ease. For example, one more place I should mention before we go on,

00:29:08--> 00:29:44

you read the law Julio huffer, nkhoma. Haleakala in Santa Monica, Allah intends to make life light upon you. When Allah gives you instructions, they're not there to make things hard for you. The point of them is to make things easier to lighten your burden, but you're created weak you think you can make ease for yourself. Last actually a hadith I should have mentioned, I mentioned this hadith before Moorish to build honey fear this somehow the seller I was appointed with the religion of Abraham Osama honey fear, which is easy, the easy religion, the easy way to follow so Pamela, well, Amanda Hello was Donna. And by the way, when am I as mentioned in Arabic, then you're expecting

00:29:44--> 00:30:00

another ummah. As for this one. Now what are you expecting in English and ask for that one? Right. So this is the that one. So the one who confirmed the truth? What's this one? Man? dakila mahina the one who was cheap. What was the

00:30:00--> 00:30:10

Previous one he gave, and this one was cheap he helped withheld for himself dakila and allogeneic ooyala. Why Nashville vocal. They achieved themselves without other people to be cheap to.

00:30:12--> 00:30:48

You're not going to spend when somebody else tries to spend for the path of us. What are you doing, man? You need the savings. These are bad times. Not only are you cheap, you're telling other people to be cheap. This is also the experience with Amazon. But here was says Mamba Hina who became cheap Westerner? Look at this. He became cheap and giving others but when you don't give, were you keeping the wealth for yourself. And once you keep wealth for yourself, you know what you start feeling? I don't need anybody. I can handle it. Right? Why does he not give? Well, because he thinks he needs it for himself. Now what keeps it for himself, he feels superior was stuck. Now he feels reckless,

00:30:48--> 00:31:24

is still not to feel not in need of anyone. I don't need anybody. I can do everything myself. I can do everything myself. Where did this lie to develop? What was the source problem? being cheap with wealth, hoarding wealth among within yourself, and this is not a lie. xojo says in another surah he says what's done Allah, Allah, they have the attitude that they don't need anyone, then Allah developer attitude towards them, that Allah doesn't need them. Well, ohanian Hamid and Allah is truly the one who has no need his money. Everybody else can have the attitude, but they really do need, they are in needs palomba.

00:31:25--> 00:32:05

So I, I dakila be Maliki follow me up soon. houfy Sudan hydrocone comments that he was he was cheap with his wealth. He didn't spend it in any of the pathways of good, implying that there were so many opportunities to spend in good he didn't take advantage of any of them. That had a feel as to do with the lab. He was very reluctant. And holding back when it came to earning rewards in the hereafter was Stephen Abby chahatein Jr. Sara esterna means to be free of need. The attitude became, I don't need the hereafter. I just need things here. That became his attitude. That's what he explains is not as, and as a result, what kept the bubble pasta. And he ended up lying against the

00:32:05--> 00:32:37

ultimate good. the very things that the one who gives confirms the truth in this guy says they're not good at all. You'll find the person this actually is happening in the Muslim world. May Allah protect us from it. Some Muslims are getting wealthy. And as they're getting wealthier, they're getting farther from the religion. Not only are they getting farther from the religion, now they're attacking the religion verbally. They're attacked. They're saying what's the good in this? What's the good in that? Why do Muslims do this, that we should enlighten the religion? The poor Muslims aren't doing it guess what kinds of Muslims are doing it? First they get well, they don't give and

00:32:37--> 00:33:11

then they start you know, lying against the ultimate good What can the Bible cause Now where did they come from first cheapness themselves, then gaining a lot of wealth and then getting the courage I don't need the religion the religion is being you know, I can mold it to my my liking I'm the customer, I've got the money after all. So they start making these kinds of comments. I'm gonna love protect us from this disease. First, and we just you know who the last Allah Subhana Allah, we will make the hardest thing easy for him. This is such a profound reality Allah has depicted in this ayah it's scary. It's a scary thing to think about. And also some people have commented on Johanna

00:33:12--> 00:33:24

Johanna, we will make the path to Hellfire easy for him, also also means evil these shell, some have commented like a boss or the lahoma a shop, meaning we will make evil deeds easy for him.

00:33:26--> 00:34:04

But Ursula in its literal form means the hardest possible thing, the most difficult thing. In other words, this person after he develops this attitude, the curse of Allah upon him is he does things or she does things that land him that land them in the worst difficulty, and they can't even help themselves. You will find these kinds of people who will live carefree concerning themselves about religion and spending their money wherever they want. And those same monies they spend, for example, on their children, their children become the cause of their heart, heart attacks, and their blood pressure. Their children become the cause of their, you know, their psychological problems, the very

00:34:04--> 00:34:13

things they invested in, they bought houses and properties and wealth and this and that. And in their old age, they lose sleep over going through the finances. They can't get any sleep.

00:34:14--> 00:34:29

The messenger was told about them when I flew and he was told falletto gibca and why lumada home in NEMA you read the law when you ask the bahuvida such a scary idea, don't be impressed with their money. Don't be impressed with their children. Allah only wants to torture them with those.

00:34:30--> 00:34:48

Allah wants to torture them with their money, allow us to torture them with their children. How can that happen? The the thing they want, they were looking for ease and those things were a bit of luck creating those things. He facilitated the harshest thing for them in those things. May Allah protect us from that right. So Fasten your seat Oh.

00:34:49--> 00:35:00

So by the way, I shot under the you at the La Villa. Right the evil that leads to the punishment of Allah and it becomes easy for him doesn't even think twice about it. And it's actually

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

faultless for a lot of these people you say why do you do it? They'll say I don't know. I just do. can't help myself. That's proof of funding yes 0 million euro uni and Humala who is a Tabata and then again wealth came up. And what good is is his wealth is not going to make him free of need when he falls in a ditch, da da, da da to slam someone down from a cliff or to throw someone in a ditch Terada to fall yourself off a cliff, or to fall yourself in a ditch, which ditches this the grave, which ditches this the Hellfire, which this is ditches this the indignation of evil deeds, these are the ditches, right? The ditches of evil deeds, the ditch, the literal ditch of the grave, the

00:35:40--> 00:36:17

literal ditch of the hellfire. When is the wolf gonna help him then Wilma? euganean, whom Allah who his wife is not going to be able to help him. So Pamela when he falls into this ditch in Canada, so beside the one who Allah elevates, is the one who gives up his well lowers himself before his Supreme Lord. And the one who wants to elevate himself a lot was eliminated. And so how is your money going to get you out? Now? How are you going to get high now? Why do people hold on to money status is still not we just read? Right? It's still not they want to be feel free of need, they want to feel above they want to show the status. But a lot of them just says how are you going to show

00:36:17--> 00:36:28

that status when you fall into that ditch? Then he says something beautiful in Elena and alhuda you know, you can have all the wealth in the world there's one wealth you cannot have. You don't own it, you will never own it as guidance.

00:36:29--> 00:37:16

Allah says it is only upon us truly to give guidance. We it's only ours. You're however wealthy, you get how poor you are. It's not yours, it is only la now macadam, yamamura. macadam, er it's only upon us to give guidance, guidance will not come to you from anywhere else. It's been interpreted in two ways. In one Alfa mala he says, men Salah can Buddha Allah He said below Nicola de vida Sabine. Alicia, he says, by saying it is upon us the guide, the ultimate guidance. Another way to translate it is real guidance is only that we that which leads you to us, through guidance, all true guidance, in the end can only be the one that leads you to us. And the second meaning it is only upon Allah to

00:37:16--> 00:37:52

guide What does it mean upon Allah guide? First of all, did he guide the human being even before the revelation came? Did he give him a sense of what's right and what's wrong for Alabama, aka the pre programming. And then on top of that, did he give him a pasta also, on top of that revelation that he gave him on top of that, too, didn't he say this guidance can only come from Allah, this pre program guidance inside of you. And this revealed guidance from above can only come from Allah. And on top of that, really, if you're seeking guidance, the end of it will not be wealth, the end of it will not be fame, the end of it can only be Who? Allah? That's real guidance. That's that's a goal.

00:37:52--> 00:38:05

custo Sabine in another place, Allah says it is only upon a law that the goal of the path leads the goal of the path. The end of the journey is what a large xojo that's the eventual conclusion of the journey.

00:38:06--> 00:38:47

So as a summary comments have been in Elaine lol Hoda, yes, Tammy Luma and Yang and uh, well, Elena and avenatti, Canada, I'll go piece by piece that he says it carries two meanings, the first meaning to be that it is only upon us that we clarify the path of guidance, the manner in the Lucha de la attacca fallu bibiani polyfill Hoda that is Allah who is enough in and of himself to clarify and articulate the path of guidance with Fannie and Hoda use a Lhasa hibou in a law, that and the second meaning is that guidance can guidance in and of itself will lead the one who is journeying in it only to Allah, they will lead themselves only to alemi Allah make us all from them. What in Nana

00:38:48--> 00:38:57

Hirata well, Buddha and it is only upon only we ourselves own the hereafter and our Hara was hula in the earliest, by the way what time is I shot as well?

00:38:59--> 00:39:08

10 Oh, we got time humbled. I was nervous. I just came from out of town when I was 930. So my clock is still messed up anyway.

00:39:09--> 00:39:23

Now look at this amazing, amazing Ayah let's first read a little bit from that seed. learner cool pneumophila Hara when he says we It is we who owned the year after the final and the earliest hula, hula.

00:39:24--> 00:39:59

He explains we own everything that will happen in the hereafter and ever couldn't learn math in dunya and everything that is in this world. Little suddenly will be he will be he gave Anusha we molded and change situations around however we want. You know, when people see changing situations, they say Where's God? How can we let this happen? How come I didn't let that happen? etc, etc, etc. He's explaining when he takes full ownership of it. Whether you understand it or not, it's still under his full ownership. He's still completely in control from an arada human. The human

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

Tell us look valic Mina, then whoever wants one of them, meaning the only one

00:40:06--> 00:40:43

or the only one they can ask, and the one who asks Once both of them they can ask to. He'll give both. So what do we ask what did Allah teach us to ask? Only Ashura only dunya? He told us to ask both robina atina with dounia, Hassan Warfield, karate has taught us to ask for both. Right? He owns both so as good and both as good in both. This is unlike, you know, the Ravani of some of the Christian groups, which only asked for the alpha and started hating on the dunya and they lived life in you know, the monasteries and celibacy and all of this stuff. And Allah says they weren't even true to their own nature, they weren't even able to keep up with the false standards that they set

00:40:43--> 00:41:01

upon themselves. And we see that in the news all the time anyway. So leongatha will Allah wa however dunya not only do we own the reward of dunya we also own the reward of the hereafter. Now this ownership just a few things about it. That's that's really really subtle and beautiful in this sort of

00:41:02--> 00:41:05

previously I said the latter is mentioned first in

00:41:06--> 00:41:17

here again, aka first, hula second, consistent with the style of the soul. So the second thing is Susan casas, listen to this carefully Allah says Allah Al hamdu feel una hora

00:41:18--> 00:41:40

hum belongs only to Allah Praise and Gratitude belong only to Allah in the beginning, in the earliest. And in the last here he said, What first in melanin tell us about Allah in sotto Casa de says, Hola. Hola, Sara. So how come there are Cara here, and a heroine Ola? There the passage was about the favors of Allah. Where do we appreciate the favors of Allah?

00:41:41--> 00:41:50

Here? So what did you mentioned first, Allah? What's this passage about not getting lost in dunya? worrying more about what? Okay, so what takes precedence in this passage?

00:41:52--> 00:41:58

Look at another instance we find, instead of the najem felina Hill as hero well.

00:42:00--> 00:42:09

Here he says only Allah owns the hereafter and the earliest, right, the last and the earliest, which is the same sequences this, but in this one, he says in Atlanta, Len,

00:42:11--> 00:42:30

Len kerravala there's an extra lamb. There's an extra lamb. When Allah says the last and the first belong only to him, no doubt they belong only to him in this surah he says no doubt they truly only belong to Him, He emphasized it even more. So what is the need to emphasize mela Hirata well, Allah in this surah

00:42:31--> 00:43:13

the learner by the way means ownership, we have we milkier ownership has this surah when talking about ownership, wealth, and the false sense of somebody who thinks they should or they own actually, but they don't really own. So what are the words that have been used in this surah that talk about ownership, APA he gave Of course you give what you own. He says luckyland cheap, cheap with what what you own is done free of fields free of need free of need because of what what he owns. Similarly euganean Humala who it will not his wealth will not benefit him well, that he owns your team. Allahu Yasaka is coming you'll give his wealth, wealth, wealth, ownership, ownership,

00:43:13--> 00:43:31

ownership, but you should you should never forget real ownership only belongs to Allah in Atlanta is only to us truly that ownership belongs in the hereafter and also here in this world. accepting this will make all your spending for Allah, guess what? Easy.

00:43:33--> 00:44:08

It will be make spending easy. When you feel like you have to spend because it's yours. It's hard. When you give, it's not even yours you're giving. It's easy, because it wasn't yours to begin with. It wasn't yours to begin with. Pamela. The other question that arises is how come not dunya NASA. Usually when Allah mentioned aka da he mentioned what dunya very few cases you mentioned the Astra will hula, hula, for example, even for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When when he wrote to highroller kameena. Buddha, he did he didn't mention dunya either, but there are other places fit dunya

00:44:09--> 00:44:22

dunya Anna Hara. So what's the difference between saying donia and saying what word and Allah. This ayah is about the ownership of Allah. The word dunya comes from the word Adena which means inferior.

00:44:23--> 00:44:48

Allah means everything before our head, our means everything. After which word includes more ownership, something inferior everything before. So the word that befits the ownership of Allah is used here. The context is the ownership of Allah. So the word that is better suited to His Majesty is Allah than dunya. Dunya is inferior word. And it's a common meaning. It's less than an Ola, it is less than a Buddha. So that word isn't used

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

to come out on top. Then Thus, I have warned you. I mentioned this before I but I can't help myself from saying it again. In the previous surah Allah alayhi salam wa

00:45:00--> 00:45:12

In the people Nakata law she came up with a law Watch out. People didn't take the warning seriously. Ally's teaching these kurush he first he gave him a lesson of history in the previous law. Now he's saying it's not don't think a messenger is warning you.

00:45:13--> 00:45:14

I'm warning you

00:45:16--> 00:45:54

to come, then I have warned you in the previous law a messenger was warning and this law Allah Himself is warning in the previous sort of the messenger was warning Watch out Don't do this. He was warning to stay away from a bad deed in this surah Allah is warning you not of the bad deed but of the consequences it's more powerful for two reasons he's not saying don't do bad things he's saying I'm warning you about a fire he mentioned the punishment first. He mentioned the punishment now and the lava the lava is something the the Arabic equivalents are that our work god What the hell was something that keeps sparking something that keeps you know, the kinds of flame that make lots of

00:45:54--> 00:46:12

noise? Right, this top bar and this is originally a love bar. But the anger is manifest of a love and he doesn't say that a lot. But he says the lava actually illustrates anger of a large religion. So I'm warning you about a fire that keeps blazing and keeps popping and keeps crackling.

00:46:13--> 00:46:53

Now after he gives us this warning, have to comb to comb Nana sacani comments akima Hola, Naren I'm thoroughly warning you. And I'm I'm scaring you, you know, you should know something about the Word indoor, indoor that's under to command warning you moon very commonly translated as Warner right? What does it mean? In the our means to sit somebody down and to make them aware of the entire situation as if to assume they don't realize the danger they're in. You make them aware of the entire situation. You make them realize if they continue the way they're going, there's a great danger ahead of them. And then finally to scare them of that danger. to formally inform and warn

00:46:53--> 00:47:10

that's that's called in depth by using that word in this ayah Allah saying the Quran is enough to make you fully aware of the kind of situation you're in. fully aware of where you're headed, and fully aware of what that's going to do to you. That's in the dark to come now on to Lamar

00:47:12--> 00:47:56

another very subtle beauty of Quran Allah warns about the fire in the past tense I have warned you I'm about to come. I've warned you past tense. Similarly we wrote read before in nachum Ivan katiba we have warned you no doubt It is we who have warned you about a past tense again past tense warning similarly for cool and dark to come saw a pattern Miss Lhasa apathy Arden was some mood. I have warned you about an explosion like the likes of the explosion of allergens removed. warned warned warned past tense. One place in core analyst says in my own view, come below. I warn you present tense. I am warning you present tense with by means of Revelation.

00:47:57--> 00:48:03

A sharabi Rahim Allah commented beautifully upon this. He said when Allah warns about the hereafter that is one warning.

00:48:04--> 00:48:40

But when what he is what he one thing or many things, it's many things. The past tense illustrates under produced one thing, the present tense illustrates a continuum of things many things. So what he can warn you by means of worldly consequences, eventual consequences, you know, the shortfall of good deeds that you know, or losing your good deeds or earning too many bad deeds, etc. Many different kinds of warnings. But then there's one kind of warning that's like the ultimate warning which is what Hellfire when the fire is being warned about when the day of judgment has been born, but it's considered one under two past tense, past tense illustrates one when a law warns by means

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

of what he says I am warning you meaning where he keeps coming down. So I keep warning you again. So in that context, the present tense is better applied panela Lee in that

00:48:50--> 00:48:53

in Deltona, Mr. Milan Parliament Ye,

00:48:54--> 00:49:37

as long as he was continuing the indar would continue to the present tense is better suited now. In the aashka no one will be thrown no one will throw themselves just like literally to cast oneself. No one will chuck them oneself in except the most wretched the most unfortunate of the person will not make us from Alaska. Now was mentioned like we said in the previous surah. Even Botha Ashkar Ashkar was mentioned in the previous surah Nowadays, there what he did, he got up and he killed the she camel here, what's he going to get? What's he going to get? No one will be thrown into this blazing crackling fire except Anushka. Now this is a parallel some of you are not here earlier, so I

00:49:37--> 00:49:46

should repeat in the previous sort of the crime was against the she camel, the miracle alesund in this surah the crime is against another miracle Allah center Quran

00:49:48--> 00:49:54

two crimes both against the miracle of Allah. And one of them the crime was the instruction was stay away from the camel.

00:49:56--> 00:49:58

In this case, the instruction was come towards the Quran.

00:50:00--> 00:50:09

The rebellion, the rebellious the ashtar. What did they do? In that case? They were told stay away and what did they do? They came to it. And in this case, they were told come to it and what did they do?

00:50:10--> 00:50:52

They went away. So under the kuzava, what's coming? What I when I turned away, he turned away. He did that one approach what he shouldn't have approached, this one walked away from what he shouldn't have walked away from the contrast has been established, both because in the end, they both rebelled against what the gift that Allah had sent them. So this lie of law in the Lashkar, no one will be thrown into this particular type of fire. The lava has not been prepared for anyone except Alaska, this specific kind of coffee, because Allah says no one will go into it except an ashcan. There are other kinds of fire for other kinds of gofar. But this special fire has been created for an ascot,

00:50:52--> 00:51:32

the most unfortunate so who is this most unfortunate person? What made him so unfortunate The next is explaining Allah the cansada. What Allah He lied against the truth, by the way previously that we read the clip before what gets the Bible first is coming up again. He lied against the truth. And then the high crime. The high crime is what when he lied against the truth on the inside. And how did it manifest on the outside? He turned away. What did he turn away from the revelation? He turned away from the message? And as he comments because the previous passage had mentioned about giving to the poor, who else does he turn away from? The ones who asked him, he turns away from them to Allah,

00:51:32--> 00:51:48

He kept Jabba what Allah now Allah doesn't say, what did he lie against? What did he turn away from? He didn't remember the theme of this surah is opening the scope, figuring out what did he turn away from figured out what did he lie against? Isn't it clear from the context already so panela and as he cares about what Allah

00:51:49--> 00:51:50

was the Eugen Naboo Han.

00:51:52--> 00:52:36

And the most fearful at God isn't that much. But that is someone who has taqwa. aapka is the one who has done most taqwa. Someone who has the most of what is called at this is an affiliate of Allah says, and the one who has the most equitable rewarded away from it, far away from it, he'll put to the side agenda to be on the side. The job to be worded off meaning to move to the side of harm harmful thing was coming, you move to the side that you need, which is the word here he will be taken Far, far, far away from the harmful, he will be moved all the way to the side to security. Okay, so what's your genda and he will soon be turned far away, who will be turned far away. And

00:52:37--> 00:53:20

by the way, how he turned away from it, the most righteous of them will be turned away from it. And when he says acaba, Casa de Cali Jamie and mofa Syrian into Alaska first Abu Bakr, so do call the Allahu anhu. Because these aren't when he gave, and he feels fearful of Allah is in the context when he when he freed a group of slaves from the kuffaar, who used to torture them or Muslim slaves, he freed them and some most of them don't say that's where the IR these IR came down. And, and that's their historical context. Now, this lie of law in Alaska, there's something really beautiful in this something really amazing. No one will go in it except Alaska, and who will be saved from it. And,

00:53:21--> 00:53:27

but when Allah talks about being saved, he doesn't say La Eugen Nevada in

00:53:28--> 00:54:04

no one will be saved from it except the people have the most taqwa. He didn't put it like that. He said, when it came to burning, he said, no one will be entered in it except the worst. But when it came to being saved, he didn't say the only people that will be saved are the people with the most awkward. He didn't put it like that. He just said that people have the most awkward will be saved from it. Number by saying it like that. We learn they are not the only ones who will be safe from people who have less than the most adequate will also have hope is a mercy of Allah, that he doesn't keep consistent the style of language and c'est la Eugen, Naboo Ha.

00:54:06--> 00:54:13

So handle it's a mercy of a large because if those were the words that would mean unless you have the highest form of taqwa you're done.

00:54:14--> 00:54:55

Right? That's what that means. The word the language of the Quran is very, very, very precise, very precise. Allah, you know, he says, the most righteous the people have the most of what will be saved but by saying that he's saying others will be saved to me Allah make us from the people have the most apply. So how do you become a person of the most awkward and lazy You the man who has aka the one who gave his money? Now the thing is in Arabic, you expect Leah kosaka he gave his money so that he may be cleansed, so that he may clean himself up Remember, the previous word told us Who is the one who succeeded called afla Harmon dakka dakka and this was he you want to become clean. You want

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

to purify yourself? How do you do it? You team Allahu Yasaka. He gave his wealth

00:55:00--> 00:55:18

But what the translation I'm trying to get at is he gave his wealth in order to cleanse himself, right? But the in order to part would have been the letter lamb and levy team Allahu Li attacca. But there is no lamb here. You know what that is teaching us give wealth, you won't purify yourself who's going to purify you,

00:55:19--> 00:55:57

Allah is going to purify you, giving a wealth will not purify you in and of itself, in the end, allows me to purify This is not cause and effect. So what is yet exactly illustrates is in hopes that he will cleanse himself in hopes of cleaning himself, he gives wealth that Allah will clean him, that Allah will cleanse the filth inside of him. Remember, in the previous session a couple of weeks ago, we talked about that door where we ask a lot of cleaners, right? And the Hiraman zakka You're the best of those who can cleanse it. So here we're learning that lesson again. So what's the purpose of giving wealth? Cleaning oneself up as a gift of a larger budget, you give the gift to the

00:55:57--> 00:56:10

poor, and the light cleans you up? And Allah cleans up the panel May Allah make us all cleansed. The other benefit of this is so beautiful you know the sutra began for a man appa The one who gave a lot

00:56:11--> 00:56:19

but here we don't read a levy you're a clean minor who what do we read levy You the man who he gives a lot and he gives a lot

00:56:20--> 00:56:42

he says to clean yours cleanse yourself the condition isn't to give a lot now to cleanse yourself just start giving and you know there in the in the previous setting I thought it was left open 11 c alpha milea Whoa, he gave a lot of as well I didn't mention well so what do you give a lot of if you don't have wealth, you give your time you give your effort you give your you everything. But if Allah mentioned mal there What about the poor people?

00:56:44--> 00:57:25

They don't have a lot to give. But when it came to giving, he didn't say giving a lot he said giving here he mentioned mine, UT, Malibu. Why because even the poorest person can give something everyone can give something. If you only have two days to take a scrape the peel off, give that give a seed give something, give something. Allah doesn't ask you to give a lot because you may not have a lot. And how do we know that Allah didn't say your theme Allah who he says, You theme Allah when it came to giving in general which means give of your loves, give of your aspirations, give up your youth, give of your talent and give up your wealth. If you have given your life then you know, no

00:57:25--> 00:57:58

limitation, no objects placed here, an object has been placed, which is an amazing illustration, again, of giving a wealth even just keep giving a little don't stop. Make it a habit every time you come too much to just drop something off, give some to the needy give something and just make it a habit. Keep cleansing your wealth, keep losing the love of it to keep you're telling your children why you should they should do it. Every time you give them a gift, teach them to give sadaqa teach them to be grateful teach them to be giving people we're giving our kids too many toys, too many toys, and they're not giving anything to anyone. So much. So some kid comes over to your house and

00:57:58--> 00:58:35

they grab one of your kids toys. What happens to your child they have a hernia, right? They're holding my doll You know, my teddy bear, look, you know, we're teaching them greed. This is the age where we have to teach them what giving, because if they learn greed, now it's never going to leave. It's never going to leave you think your kids are good just to come at us because they come into my ship. This attitude of giving and not giving is the key in this store. It's the key to have a clean person. So teach your children to give give to each other gift to neighbors given sadaqa right train them and give them the things they love lanton algabra hatanaka Mima to teach yourself this teach

00:58:35--> 00:59:12

your children this, you know for buy new clothes, right? And give half of them to somebody else? Or buy new clothes and give them to somebody else altogether. We bought this you know, because Allah will give us even better. Yeah, how much better a lot better? Really? Yeah. Teach your children that make them imagine what alone give them. Give them a love of that this is a very hard thing to do. But we have to do it. We have to do it. Especially when they're young. Once they become teenagers Forget it. The ship has sailed. The email has been sent. I think we need to make a new expression. Right? The ship has sailed is old. So the new one for me is the email has been sent. You can't

00:59:12--> 00:59:47

unsend right? It's gone. So May Allah azza wa jal give us give us the ability to become a giving people and to instill that into our children. Well, Maddie, I had an older woman named Matt in Georgia. Beautiful. He says he gave to cleanse himself. And not just he didn't have anyone in front of him that he had that had done him any favor that should be paid back. In other words, you know how you somebody went and stayed at somebody's house, you feel kind of obligated to them. So you send them a gift, or you send them a card? You send them something? It's not just about sadaqa but giving someone you feel we should give them you know, it's societal pressure. You go visit family

00:59:47--> 01:00:00

abroad, what do you say you should give them something because they're gonna feel that they're gonna say something. So you're not giving them out of love. You're giving them because you don't want to hear it afterwards. Right? This is this is the attitude right? It's this is not the attitude of giving him this

01:00:00--> 01:00:38

case, this is giving for who for what yet as in love de la guajira. Allah, this is the reason for giving. And then what happens in our families is there's a needy member of the family, and you're about to give them and your mother comes to you, and your aunt comes to you and your cousin, don't give them. Remember those people. Last year, they, you know, they left a little bit in their plate, or they said this one thing about us that we should never forgive, you know, and they come to you, and they stop you from giving your own family, the first people you should give your own family stops you from giving, we have to give not for what the consequences will be, we have to give to

01:00:38--> 01:01:15

cleanse ourselves. And if the worldly consequences are bad, that in and of itself cleanses us because it cleans our intentions. It cleans up our intentions, because we're not doing it because we're gonna become popular, we're doing it now we're gonna not don't do it to get in trouble due to seek a less pleasure. But in the end, don't let the fear of consequence stop you from giving and stop you from you know, this sort of attitude now. So now the meaning of the ayah is, and there was not a single person that had a blessing for him a gift for him that should be paid back. Now it might encourage them. Another meaning is how can there ever be anyone who is going to pay him back

01:01:15--> 01:01:22

for what he gave? In other words, when you give somebody is there anybody who's going to be able to pay you back anyway?

01:01:23--> 01:01:35

Nobody. In the end, nobody knows how hard it was for you. Like if you gave somebody $2 they paid you $2 back. But maybe that them giving you $2 is a lot easier for them. And you giving them $2 was a lot harder for you.

01:01:36--> 01:02:16

They know the physical value of the money, they don't know the effort, the difficulty, the entire situation, they don't they can't quantify that just means to give someone absolutely completely so there's no feeling of dissatisfaction left. Actually, in reality, nobody can do that for you. Nobody can do that for you. And that's why the next aisle makes such perfect strategic sense. What does he say in Liberty law, our he'll be Allah, except in pursuit of the face, which means pleasure, contentment, of his most high Lord and His most Supreme Lord, by mentioning the the earlier, the the higher the elevation of Allah, what is it contrasting with

01:02:17--> 01:02:54

the lowering of ourselves, the one who has a lot of wealth is feels What about themselves high, once they repeat, understand a lot is on other than they become an SQL they become the lowest, they become the lower themselves. So this is an eye of humility, all I want is my Supreme Lord, my Supreme Master to be pleased with me, if the heart means to seek out and to demand and also it means to rebel, he comes from the same word in my mind I have combines the two meanings and says, You seek it so badly you cross all the limits and trying to get it you you know, you go beyond the norm to try and get it. What is it that you're going beyond the known to try to get the face of your master

01:02:54--> 01:03:35

the contentment, the smile of your masters panela in love the law was, Your Honor. And finally, and by the way, the IP data is on sube the fat cow and it has three interpretations. I won't go into the grammar too much business model is is definite among katanya in diraja. He just agenzia NEMA, what that simply simply means is that Fatah indicates it is the only reason for pursuit. That's the only reason they gave there was no other motive. And it was the exclusive motive. And that's the that's what the benefit of the fata is another benefit of the fourth house, it could be my Frodo level mfu. What that means is it is because of that pursuit that they gave, meaning they were pursuing a lot

01:03:35--> 01:03:51

through prayer and through other good deeds. And they figured what's in another really easy way I can get really close to his pleasure. And they started giving. That's another interpretation of just that Fatah that massive state of empty ha in the eye and finally we conclude what Sophia robot even look at

01:03:53--> 01:04:29

Rama hula says well as Sophia Yamato safavi had the he's the one who, who acquires the properties, the attributes, the characteristics that have been described just now in this surah This person will truly very, very soon be very content. This world is all about being content. Why do people run after money? There'll be content. Why? What's going to make use of it will be that car, it'll be that house, it'll be that wedding. It will be those clothes. It'll be something you think that's going to make you content. Unless as you develop this I'll give you that what you're running after you're really not running after money in reality, Ally's teaching us What do you really running

01:04:29--> 01:04:59

after contentment? You just want to be happy. And you think money is gonna make you happy and unless you have something more you do this you seek a less face, and I'll give you that what you're running towards, one is alpha. Similarly, Allah says Allah be the karela he taught my nl Polo. Know that by remembering a lot of hearts attain satisfaction, hearts will be at unrest, until they attain the remembrance of Allah then they will be finally tranquil satisfied, the the itches gone, the you know the the restlessness is gone, somehow

01:05:00--> 01:05:41

Allah, Allah Sophia, the Nam two more comments and we're done with the soldeu. inshallah Allah, the lamb is actually in in the Arabic language can be used to illustrate an oath that hasn't even been said. Meaning one so for Yoruba According to him, Luca de Rahim, Allah even says, What de la Hina Sophia Bobby monatti, he may know karma, karma will just love him. And I swear by Allah that He will soon be very, very pleased because of what we give him from the honor and nobility and the most noble and beautiful of rewards. But the meaning to life I truly swear by Allah is understood. When you just begin with law. Allah doesn't just say we're so Phi Alpha, he says, well as of now, what's

01:05:41--> 01:06:21

the benefit of swearing? You swear when somebody doesn't believe you? Allah says, believe it, you will be happy. I'm telling you, you'll be happy. Why do you talk like that? When somebody says, I don't know. What I'm running after is making me pretty happy. I think this person needs to be told, I'm telling you, I swear to you, you will be content. You won't have any other desires, you will not be in any unrest. You will find tranquility in yourself while so for your ba and soon he will attain contentment. even look at you like him. I love it. Finally commenting on this surah he said that a lot of mufa Ceylon has said that this idea had come about come in regards to overcapacity. His

01:06:21--> 01:06:37

contention is that he didn't find any direct variation to that effect. He only found some of us even saying many have said, but not finding who the many are. So he wasn't able to trace it back. So he says it may be about him. But it since the language is general. He says you know, for him, none of

01:06:38--> 01:07:10

the wording is general. So the lessons are general too Even though they may apply to the greatest companion while the Allahu anhu actually most Sahaba most of us even thought it was a Christian. Do you know why? Cuz it says Africa, the one who has the most taqwa just because of that word, a lot of them have assumed and interpreted this these IR to be referring directly first to Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu taala and who so with that we conclude inshallah, to Allah Subhana Allah Mohammed ik shadow en la ilaha illa Anta Mr. Furukawa to Lake wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
