00:02:11--> 00:02:52

In today's Koba I will try to talk about the 16th I have sort of mine and in this ayah Allah azza wa jal is now continuing the conversation he was having with his son that the one was having with his son after the intervention that Allah had of the two ayat before in this ayah Allah azza wa jal says Yamuna Yeah, my beloved son or my young son so before the advice is given, again, love is expressed, and that's important, because we saw before when he was talking to describing how he spoke to his son once spoke to his son. The first time he spoke to him, he said, Yamuna Yella Toshi Pilla, my beloved son, my little son, don't do [???] with Allah. Now he's saying it again. Yeah, boulia, my

00:02:52--> 00:03:26

beloved son, my young boy. So the idea being it's not enough to express love once. And it's not enough to give advice lovingly one time and say, Well, I first time I spoke to him, it was lovingly now he gets it. Now I need to get tougher. The idea is to kind of reinforce that advice is given and especially advice pertaining to Dean is given in the most loving, gentle of context. The problem is, when you give advice related to a law in a harsh way, then the harshness gets associated with the dean.

00:03:27--> 00:04:06

Right. So in the child's mind, whenever mom or dad talked to me about Allah, they're mad. So they that easily gets the osmosis happens. It's not they that are mad. It's this religion is just makes everybody angry. Because every time my parents talked to me about religion, they were angry. So there's a confusion easily happening in the mind of a child, that they're thinking that the parents rage or their parents upset. This is actually coming from Allah Himself. It doesn't help that sometimes elders in trying to correct children and we need to correct them and tough love is necessary. But don't drag a lie into your tough love. Right? So if you're mad at your child, say,

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

Allah will punish you for this.

00:04:09--> 00:04:38

You wouldn't even say that to an enemy. But you wouldn't even say that to someone you don't like that male love an issue. Right? So this is this is the kind of thing we should avoid doing. And yeah, there's a time for it. There's a time for way like I mean, there's different contexts and different kinds of advice, but generally speaking, the starting point is not if I'm not tough, they're not gonna listen. The starting point is actually Basilan. And then the unlike the messengers, good news, first, gentleness first, speak lovingly first, and so that's inside of Yamuna.

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

But this ayah is one of the most amazing journeys like journeys of imagination in the Quran. And what I hope to illustrate to you today is that journey like how is a lead describing this image that this father tried to paint for his son? He says in a ha integral, even if think

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

Think about the case, were no doubt even if it were myth. Now, what is it? We don't know. So he's kind of the father is already starting with a kind of mystery. What is it? He didn't say? And even though someone's thinking, What is he referring to by it? Certainly even if it was if it was what in Turku, even if it happened to be mithali hub button, if it happened to be the weight of a single mustard seed. And what I want you to do after this clip was done is Google what a mustard seed looks like and how big it is, and how much it weighs. It's actually interesting that Aladdin say was not are thick law habit. And he said mithila habit mithali in Arabic is the pattern myth. It is used for

00:05:44--> 00:06:31

devices for tools. So for example, that is opening in Arabic, right, and the device used to open a door a key is called a miftah. And Suba is mourning. And the device that makes you emulate the light of the morning at night is a lamp, so they call it a Misbah from somewhere. The same way a device or a standard that's used to figure out how much something weighs, is called a myth con or Amazon. Right? These words that when they start with me like that, they are an illustration of some kind of a device or a tool or something they use for a purpose. You know, that comes in handy. Well, you know how a weighing scale would be called a mythical but you know how we measure sometimes in

00:06:31--> 00:07:09

America we measure in pounds and ounces and things like that. And in England, they measure in kilograms and grams right to metric system. Those systems of measurement would be called Mithen. Okay, there means those standards are something by which we measure. Now over here it says Miss Carla hub button, which is strange, because misspelling means the standard of measurement, the standard by which you would measure a single seed of mustard, mustard seed. Now the thing about that is, there is no practical way practice, especially at the time the ayah was revealed. And even now, nobody says, Hey, I want to know how much a mustard seed weighs.

00:07:10--> 00:07:50

So somebody said, Give me a cup of mustard seed, give me half an ounce, give me a pound, give me what you know, a kilogram half a kilogram, you know, you either weight in volume, how much is this bag of mustard seed, or you have a standard weight of some heavy kind, right? But here, Ally's saying he's mentioning a standard which human beings don't use. So why would you call it a standard because we only think of a standard when everybody's using it. Right? So from the very beginning, the father is talking to the son about a standard that doesn't exist in human measurement. It's too small. It's too refined for human beings to have any use for it with Allah hamerton the standard

00:07:50--> 00:08:32

weight of a single seat and how about the tama Buddha at the end is, you know, this the most valid form of have have been seed. But its agenda could be seen in general, right? But when you see a single seed, a single grain seed that's called a hub but the timer Buta does that. Then he says min hurdle, the hurdle which is translated as mustard seed, it can also be looked at this is not just mean by Ania, it can actually be hubbardton min hordaland. It's interesting that the word hydrilla as a verb was used when they had a palm tree and you know, palm trees that are waiting for the dates to get ripe. But sometimes because a wind or some animal hit the tree or something, some of the

00:08:32--> 00:09:12

dates that were not fully ripe yet they haven't reached their color yet they fall off, right? And those are the dates that fall off. Nobody cares about them. They're because people want to come to the palm tree, the gardener will just clean those off and get rid of them. He's not going to take the seed out of those because they haven't matured yet. What's he want to see out of the ones that have mature Do you understand how doll is actually also used or Mahajan was used actually for the seeds or the premature fruits that fell off the palm tree that were basically cut off or cut aside and when they would, you know, cut up an animal handler LACMA, so when they would call up an animal

00:09:12--> 00:09:46

and they're making like, you can think of minced meat or something like that, like a really small piece of meat. And when you know when you're cutting up meat or you're cooking or something like that, you don't use every you can't possibly use every single piece that you when you cut up like vegetables or something like that. There's some people that always comes on the side. Something that gets overlooked, no matter how much you'd have to scrape it from the cutting board into the pan something for flies off, right? That little bit of a mess, that would be a hurdle to meaning it's cut off from the original and it's insignificant. So I don't either literally means a mustard seed,

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

or it means something cut off that your attention will then go to write and he says if something existed, that was the weight of a single mustard seed, even if it was the and it's not even a mustard, it's the weight of a mustard seed.

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

See, now think of anything that could be the weight of a mustard seed. And then on top of that, think of something that your attention wouldn't go to anyway, because your attention would be elsewhere. Now imagine the huddle that fell, the palm tree, the date that fell, it has a seed inside it. So it's not even, it's being overlooked. The seed inside is being overlooked even more. And even from that, that little piece of fruit that's not mature that fell, it's not the size or the weight of a mustard seed, it would have to be a 100th of that, for it to be the weight of a mustard seed, right? So he's talking about something really, really puny.

00:10:34--> 00:10:57

Like in in a literary sense, he's talking about something atomic, right? It's a spec that he's talking about. Then he says, Okay, fine. Now it there's this little tiny little speck of seed. Men have the photography satellite, and then you find that this little seed would end up inside of a boulder. unhedged

00:10:58--> 00:11:05

cubbies allow them a swirl, a large rock, a large boulder that is impossible to move,

00:11:06--> 00:11:39

right that is lodged inside the earth, that kind of a boulder is typically called typically called a Sahara. So now we've got this puny little seed, first of all, how did the seed end up or something, the weight of a single seed and up inside of a boulder. So now two things have happened. First of all, it's not noticeable. Second of all, which specific one, and if I say I want you to find me that one seed, and there was like 20 seeds on the ground, or 100 on the ground, you know, how you want me to find that they all look the same.

00:11:40--> 00:11:47

Then on top of that, find me that one seed that is inside the middle of a one, a boulder, for the coffee sutra,

00:11:48--> 00:12:04

office, some arty outfit of the translate the whole thing first, this whole phrase first, then come back to this image, he says, or that seed is somewhere in the skies, for some allottee outfit, or the origin, the earth. Yeah, TB Allah, Allah will bring it forward.

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

That little, whatever it is, that's the size of the size of the seed, even if it is inside of a boulder. Now let's think about something being inside of a boulder. If I said to you, there's a diamond inside of this Boulder, what would you have to do to access that diamond? Would you have to cut the rock? Would you have to start smashing the rock? If I said, there's something very, and by the way, a mustard seed, if it is a seed is not hard, like a, like a diamond.

00:12:32--> 00:13:12

So can you if you hit a diamond, it won't Smash. But if you if you hit the seed, it can get crushed, it completely gets puny to begin with. And it's not a hard solid, but it's inside of a rock. So the one who's cutting that rock would have to be extremely careful in cutting it open. Now imagine the task of cutting open a boulder to find a single piece of seed, even if you were able to cut the boulder precisely into two halves. Does that mean it's going to be right on top? No, you would have to cut this folder into so many tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny little pieces, almost to the point where it's the size of the Boulder, but in pieces that are the same size as the mustard seed. How possible is

00:13:12--> 00:13:49

that for human beings? And what kind of force would that take. And by the way, if we even if we did try to do that we'd have we'd have to blow up the whole thing. Right? Or we take a drilling machine or something and crack away at it. And when if we were to do that, then what would happen in the end, we'd end up crushing that seat to begin with. And in all of that mess, even if the seed was there, we covered in the dust and the dirt of the rock. And whatever residue from our expedition, we wouldn't be able to find it, we wouldn't be able to see it. And that's the impossible task of finding that seed in the middle of a rock. But unless has no. But what about. It could be inside

00:13:49--> 00:13:51

that rock, but it could also be somewhere in the skies.

00:13:53--> 00:14:06

How many skies are there seven, we barely have access to the first one. Now this seed could exist somewhere in the seven skies. It could be inside of a rock that's part of a meteor traveling somewhere billions of light years away.

00:14:08--> 00:14:18

And we have no idea we can even perceive imagine this speck existing somewhere. I want you to think of what Sam was telling me today. I want you to think of a drop of water

00:14:19--> 00:14:21

that you spill into the ocean.

00:14:22--> 00:14:28

A drop that you drop into from your cup, it went into the ocean and somebody's asking you to recover that drop.

00:14:30--> 00:14:31

Find me that exact drop.

00:14:32--> 00:14:58

Right there. This is the kind of impossibility that's being painted here. He's asking his son to imagine this tiny little thing that is impossible to even recover from inside of a boulder. But then let's imagine Okay, at least you have the US zeroed in on the location. It's inside this folder even that it's an impossible mission. But no it could be anywhere in the universe. It could be anywhere even in beyond the first guy alpha Mojave seed

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

Or let's go even further afield out of the, or it could be deep inside the earth. It could be inside. So if you, if you started digging one place in the earth, you could keep digging and digging and digging, maybe you'll find it in that spot, but it could be one inch over and you will know

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

is not the case.

00:15:17--> 00:15:30

And it could be anywhere on Earth. It could be anywhere under the seas, it could be anywhere in the skies, it could be what is continuously highlighted, by the way, these are three images, the seed could be inside of a rock, it could be in the skies, and it could be in the earth, right?

00:15:32--> 00:15:36

In one case, when he started by something that the eye can perceive.

00:15:37--> 00:15:41

And the mind wouldn't even go towards. That makes it already impossible.

00:15:42--> 00:15:57

Then on top of that it's inside of a boulder, which means it's impossible to access. And even if you know where it is, you don't have the strength or the tools or the precision or the means to break the rock open to get to it. You don't have the power to do it. You don't have the ability to do it.

00:15:59--> 00:16:04

And then even if you didn't have the power to break that it's somewhere in the skies, which you can never even reach.

00:16:05--> 00:16:15

So lack of access too much distance, the skies, or it's too far deep inside the earth, there's too much darkness down there. There's no light,

00:16:16--> 00:16:31

impossible on top of impossible on top of the impossible. And the point being made is something very, very simple. And what is it? He said it's not even the seed I keep using the seed as an example. He said, even if it is the equivalent weight of a seed.

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

But what's it

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

it could be your intention?

00:16:38--> 00:17:08

It could be the one little glance, you talk. It could be the one word you said under your breath that nobody heard. It could be a secret, so impossible to find by anybody else. Because it's been buried away. It could be a good deed, it could be a bad deed, it could be a good thought it could be a bad thought. It could be a good intention, it could be a bad intention, it could be something that no one has ever even imagined existing, that you would have done.

00:17:09--> 00:17:34

Or that you and I have perceived, or you and I have allowed it to influence our actions. It could be that and Allah says yet TB Allah, Allah, Allah will bring it out. I'll bring it forward. And then bringing forward is the strange word to Allah. He didn't say, Allah will. Allah knows where it is. He didn't just say that he said Allah will bring it. So let me Let's explore that a little bit.

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

You see,

00:17:37--> 00:17:50

if I were if someone was to ask me forget a boulder if somebody just gave me a piece of concrete, which is much easier to break than a boulder. And so there's a there's an egg inside? Can you recover the egg without breaking it?

00:17:51--> 00:18:36

Right, the the amount of precision with which I would have to cut the concrete and the care with which I'd have to cut the concrete is incredible, isn't it. And I could have tools that can break a wall. I can have tools that are powerful like a bulldozer, I can have heavy tools, but heavy tools will they're too powerful for this job. Weak tools might be too weak, powerful tools might be too powerful. I need precise access. Subtle laser precise access, you know how like in surgery, those some of some of you viewing are in the medical profession in surgery, you have to have laser precise tools to make the incision to insert the scope and to go and remove the tumor or to remove the cyst

00:18:36--> 00:18:53

or remove whatever, right and one little millimeter this way or that way and the person can die or have permanent brain damage or whatever else you understand. So you have to have very, very precise tools. Now what's the word for when you have extreme precision and you're very delicate in what you do. That's actually called an Arabic.

00:18:54--> 00:19:04

The Arabic word for that is look and look at how this ayah ends in Nala leaf one have been one of our last names is not leave. Subtle, delicate,

00:19:05--> 00:19:19

Li subtle and delicate. Actually, the word lot has to do with permeating like you know how smoke can go through your clouds for dust can go through your clothes, when something is able to pass through something and you won't even realize it.

00:19:20--> 00:19:55

Right? Nowadays, we're worried about a virus because it can pass through our nostrils and we won't even realize it. So the virus actually has looked and it's too gentle and too delicate for us to perceive. But it passes through. It goes right through right. Alice's name Latif is so beautiful in this context because it can pass through the layers of rock. A love looks can pass through all the layers of hard rock and get to that one seed that nobody else could have access to. And even if they did find it, they end up crushing it. And even if they held it in their hand, they wouldn't know if that that is what it is.

00:19:56--> 00:19:58

They wouldn't know but unless the thief

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

and it wasn't

00:20:00--> 00:20:44

Remarkable even above that. So that's unless control over space, right? has control over space. But the other name of a line this ayah is in Allah Hi, Latif and Javi that Allah is fully aware has full news. And you know what that means. A lot doesn't just know that the seed is there. But Allah knows what plant what seed was planted, that was grown, that grew a million seeds, and which one of those seeds traveled around and which one of the seeds got lodged and eventually got surrounded by rock, he knows the story behind the seed that's going in the past, and he knows where that seat is gonna end up in the future. He's not he didn't just find it in the present. And that's his knowledge.

00:20:44--> 00:21:17

That's it, that's him being babied. So in saying the word Latif and Hubby, the two names of ally here, it says if alleged, demonstrated or minus demonstrating to his son allows complete control over space and time, and Latif and hubby. It's incredible. And so when he paints this picture for his son in law, intercom is Karla Hubbert in Sutherland, photography security officer and then this was just about the rock, then it could be the sea could be somewhere in the skies, in the unseen realms.

00:21:18--> 00:21:56

or fill out there could be anywhere in the earth, even if we discover something, you know. Now, nowadays, we discover historical artifacts. People discovered dinosaur bones and stuff like that people discover, you know, ancient graves or tombs. But we don't know the history Do we? We don't know exactly what these people live like what their story was, we just found something we don't know that know what it came from, where it's headed, what its value was, we know nothing. We know bits and pieces clues and we're trying to piece together. Allah is the thief in that he knows exactly where it is. And he permeate his knowledge permeates through, there's no filters that can block out

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

the knowledge of Allah.

00:21:58--> 00:22:06

And then he's complete. He's known about it all along. But even knowing and having access isn't enough, someone has to be powerful enough to know about it

00:22:07--> 00:22:19

exactly where it is, to, to be able to sense it and perceive it. But beyond that, to actually pull it out and bring it forward for its purpose. So the is is yet to be Allah, Allah will bring it forward.

00:22:20--> 00:22:33

That that's a remarkable power in and of itself. And that power is based on this, these names of Allah azza wa jal, Latif and Hubby, the point that the Father is making to his son, a son,

00:22:34--> 00:22:37

there are plenty of things you're going to do, I'll have no idea.

00:22:38--> 00:22:50

There are plenty of things that you will experience in life and you'll have no idea. You'll have no idea what people's real intention was, you'll have no idea that someone's saying one thing to you, but doing another behind your back, you won't know.

00:22:51--> 00:22:53

I won't know when I'm not around, whether you're praying or not.

00:22:55--> 00:23:18

I won't know if you're you can be pretty good at erasing your tracks, your digital footsteps, who you're talking to who you're texting what you're viewing, you can erase your browser history. You can wipe out your iCloud Drive. You can clean up your call log, you can do all kinds of stuff, you can have secret apps, I won't know there's no way for me to control where you're going to go, what you're gonna do,

00:23:19--> 00:23:27

there's there's going to be things that are going to be secret from the world and only you'll know about them. I don't know what fake screen name you're gonna hide behind.

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

I don't know.

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

But you know what, it could be the biggest secret.

00:23:34--> 00:23:36

It could be that no one will ever find out.

00:23:37--> 00:23:44

It can be hidden and buried away and you will live and die and no one will ever even imagined that that existed.

00:23:45--> 00:23:51

But Allah is going to bring that secret out. Because when you when you think everybody else forgot, you start pretending it never happened.

00:23:52--> 00:23:56

It doesn't exist. I can't be held accountable for it because I never got caught.

00:23:58--> 00:24:07

And he's telling his son, Allah will bring it forward, good or bad. And that I highlighted the bad right now. But there's good also

00:24:08--> 00:24:14

you said things to someone that helped them. You give somebody hope. You said a kind word to somebody.

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

You said just know that I'm praying for you.

00:24:18--> 00:24:27

You just put your your hand on a friend's shoulder and said, You know if you ever need me, just a kind word. He never thought twice about it.

00:24:28--> 00:24:53

You know how the prophet SAW someone told us that smiling at your at your believing brother is a kind of sadaqa is a kind of charity. Right? So you see somebody walked by and he's somebody go, are you just a genuine smile is all and you went about going into each pizza? He didn't think twice about it. And in your mind, the things you have done or the things you're conscious of

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

the things that count is Oh, did I do hedger not? Did I fast or not? The good deeds

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

That you can actually quantify you did.

00:25:03--> 00:25:20

But there are things that you may have done, that Allah knows about that are so tiny that even you won't know how tiny they are. You did them, you did good things, and you don't even know how tiny it is. And by the way, it's really remarkable that Allah gave the example of a what a seed.

00:25:21--> 00:25:24

And a seed inside of a rock cannot grow, isn't it?

00:25:25--> 00:25:55

See, it's impossible for a seed inside of a rock to grow. But Allah says he can bring it out. And if Allah can bring out a seed, what can you do with that seed, he can turn it into a tree, he can turn that tree into a forest, he can turn that forest into endless fruits, he can turn those fruits into farms, he can do that all from what? one seed, and he's highlighting something so beautiful here, you might, you might start under estimating the value of something good that you do.

00:25:57--> 00:26:12

Because you compare your little seeds worth of a good thing to somebody else's mountain of a good thing. And you say to yourself, man, that person does so much good, I can never do that much good. So my stuff is worth a seed.

00:26:13--> 00:26:24

What doesn't even count, it has no value, really, it has no value, where did you get the idea that it has no value, good or bad? Well, many mlms Colorado,

00:26:25--> 00:27:03

whoever does the equivalent weight of a single speck of good or bad, yo they'll see it, they'll absolutely see it. But in this is something more yet to be how Allah Allah has power over it alone will bring it forward and bringing it forward just may not just mean they'll bring it forward on Judgement Day, it could also mean align the most unsuspecting ways in a ways that in ways that you will never know the impact of your good deed and only Allah can know that he can grow your good deed. Allah is teaching this lesson through a father and a son's conversation in order to have you know, because when when children are growing up, one of the things that they are developing is

00:27:04--> 00:27:36

self respect, you know, identity, a sense of identity, a sense of what is valuable and what is not valuable, right. And that's it's immature when they're growing up, that that sense is immature. So what is valuable is a certain brand of sneaker. And if you're wearing that certain brand of sneaker you're more valuable. And if you're not wearing that, then you're less valuable as a person, if you're wearing certain kinds of clothes, you're more valuable. If you're not wearing those kinds of clothes, you're less valuable. If you look a certain way, if you have a certain kind of haircut, if you have a certain kind of phone, if you have a certain kind of device. If you're you know, if

00:27:36--> 00:27:50

you've watched a certain kind of show, you can be one of the groups of people that have watched it, you're more valuable, or you don't even know that what that is, get out of here. If you have a PS five, you're more valuable. You still want you have a ps3 Are you a dinosaur?

00:27:52--> 00:28:15

Right, you're less valuable. So value gets associated with people, but people see all around as valuable, who's ever placed a value on one single seed of mustard that they've never even seen? That is cut off from all the other seeds because it's inside of Boulder somewhere, nobody places value on that. And the father is teaching his son, listen, people put fake value on things all around you.

00:28:16--> 00:28:28

They put fake value on good and bad all around you. I don't want you to lose sight that all of that will disappear. And the only thing that will matter are the things that maybe nobody can see. But Allah always sees

00:28:29--> 00:28:52

unless he's your intentions. Allah sees your good deeds, Allah sees your bad deeds, and he will bring them out. Even if nobody else does. The good that you do that nobody else thinks is good is still good. And along. And it may never get appreciated in this life by anybody because it was inside a boulder, or it was lost in the sky somewhere your good deed Oh, for some of it is really beautiful. Because you did a good deed and good deeds go up into the skies to

00:28:53--> 00:29:34

write they go for evaluation into the skies. And it can also imply that when you do a good deed, nobody around you appreciated it. Nobody said by the way, you did a really good job. Nobody said I'm proud of you. Nobody, you know, because we look for validation. What is this IO doing? It's also kind of giving validation. When you're doing something sincerely for Allah, Allah Himself is valuating it, he's giving it validation. You don't have to seek it somewhere else. You don't have to look for it. He's making this young man independent of so many forces from the outside that make him feel that my bad is not that bad. Or my good isn't good enough. Right? Both of those are very

00:29:34--> 00:29:52

powerful negative forces. By the way, my bad is not that bad. And my good is not good enough. And both of those are being crushed by this one image. What does it do for this son? Every time he's passing by a plant, that plant will have seeds inside it right? And he's reminded look at what it loaded with that seed.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

Look at it. Look at the greenery all around me all of it. At one point that entire giant tree was at one point a seed. It was nothing else

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

It was just a seed, this entire field of crop was just to seed.

00:30:05--> 00:30:34

The food that this entire Earth is eating is reduced back to what? A seed were nourished by a seed, and something as insignificant and so smaller sustaining the entire Earth, isn't it animals and human beings being sustained by seeds, by the seeds? How do we, it's something so small, and yet something so powerful, something with so much potential. And that's the last comment I'll make to you. You don't know the impact of what you're doing right now.

00:30:35--> 00:30:37

I don't know. And you don't know.

00:30:38--> 00:30:40

You might just be helping one person,

00:30:42--> 00:31:18

you might just be doing one kind of thing. You might even be just doing one good thing for your own self, you might just be doing one thing for your own stuff. But that one thing will have a chain of reactions, not just what is the entire chain of reactions, one thing leading to another leading to a better life planned out. And the effect of it will seep through walls like Latif. And Allah knows the effect is going to have and where that's going to end up how things will connect one to the other, to the other, to the other to the other, you can't control that that's only in the hands of Allah. That's beyond your perception.

00:31:19--> 00:31:29

And so this idea is actually really about a reality, a true reality check. The most valuable things in life are the things we cannot perceive.

00:31:30--> 00:32:06

And this is the reality of judgment, a when the things we could not see will be the most real. The things we didn't think about will be the things that we should have thought about the most. And the things that were distracting us and they were occupying us all the time all around us will disappear. How about anyone thought I like scattered dust, they won't mean anything. You know, a lot of the same one who will a person wants to escape a lot don't want to they don't want to stand in front of Allah. So they say when I die cremate my body because I don't want to be resurrected, right and even even cremate their body alone will take the scattered specks of ash, even if they were

00:32:06--> 00:32:14

scattered across the oceans, and bring the person back. This isn't even about the resurrection of a human being. This is about the resurrection of their deeds and the effects of their deeds.

00:32:16--> 00:32:42

This is a different kind of resurrection, isn't it? It's not just the person's being resurrected, all of our deeds and the impact of our deeds are being resurrected. And that's that's kind of like this most powerful, incredibly powerful, enabling and humbling lesson at the same time. It's one of those places in the Quran, that if a young man or young woman internalizes this, then they get to things. They get an amazing sense of humility before Allah

00:32:43--> 00:33:11

and self consciousness, and they get an amazing sense of confidence. And you will think humility and confidence are two opposite things. And yet they are perfectly fused with each other and desire in a lot of different hubie alarm zones and make us live the powerful teachings of this ayah and May Allah azza wa jal allow us to raise a generation of Muslims that live this ayah and the way they carry themselves barakallahu li walakum for me, Hakeem, when a family we are COVID it was decreed Hakeem
