Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:17 --> 00:00:39

How are all the Malay Amina shaytan al rajim for calling gnabry Boo be validly Hakka, Lika your whole mount where UD te la la quinta de lune so um Casa de colo welcome back the daily Kapha heliacal Asia alrighty. Oh I should do cos we're

00:00:40 --> 00:00:45

we're in nominal Asia or Latina yet I've had gentlemen hula and

00:00:47 --> 00:00:52

we're in I mean her no man your Chicago fire crew German hold

00:00:55 --> 00:01:00

weighed in I mean her lamb a bit will mean Hoshyar team

00:01:02 --> 00:01:08

well I'm Allah who we who are feeling not men who own

00:01:10 --> 00:01:52

rubbish it suddenly were silly Amory, why to lock that me listening kaha coli Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while early he also here Jemaine Murad Inshallah, today I'll be talking to you about iron number 74 primarily of SoTL Bacara, which is our next parable. This is Allah talking to Bani Israel. So Allah said Yeah, Bani Israel with colonial mentality and Uncle Alikum children sons of Israel are children of Israel make mention of the favor I've done upon you. And so he continues to talk to them directly for many many Ayat all the way into the 100 and 20s Allah speaks to them from iron number 40 or so onwards so by Adi Arthur so are dedicated to Allah speaking

00:01:52 --> 00:02:21

directly to the Israelites but as I tried to explain to you earlier on in the series, alleged talking to one group, but there's always another group superimposed on top of that so the conversations happening with them but able Atlanta it's giving us a lesson also at the same time, right? And when were being talked to they can hear also so it's always multiple audiences you know, useful you know, so this in Arabic was for bhrr so you can you can strike literally just the way we say it in English two birds with one stone right so that's always happening

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

for it like we'll call it local Allah Allah Maha vain. So there's this one mohatta Another mohatta one audience and another audience. But anyway, the the example I want to give you today is about the hearts becoming hard. That's the next major example Allah gives in the Surah. And first I will roughly translate it for you and then we'll spend some time trying to understand the beauty of what Allah is saying here. He's talking to the Israelites, he said third Mikasa Kulu buco member the Dalek then your hearts became hard even after that. So what's that even after that? That's the IRA before I'll explain in a second, okay. For here called jority, our shadow casa, then those hearts

00:03:00 --> 00:03:46

became like stones, or even their hearts became even harder than stone. Even harder and stiffness are more intense in stiffness than stone. Were in nominal majority lemma at a fragile Roman Hill and har and even out of stones. There are the kind that explode. Rivers explode from out of them they burst open and a waterfall gushes out or river gushes out from within the rock from within the boulder. We're in the minha la Maya Chicago fire crew Julian Halima, and from out of the some rocks are the kind that crack open. You know, so the idea of your Chicago data Chicago and the Chicago and Arabic is like in Chicago. It's something cracking open, something splitting open. So rocks that

00:03:46 --> 00:04:09

split open for you. Hello, Julian Holman, then water comes out of them. So I want you to keep these images in mind. The first image is the rock explodes, it bursts open and water gushes out like a river is coming out of it. The other one the rock cracks open and you find that there's water inside for your courage. I mean, holy water comes out from it. Not with the same intensity. It's like a look at it. There you go.

00:04:10 --> 00:04:54

Okay, so we're in Manhattan. Yeah. B to Mihashi, Atilla. And there are among those rocks. There are a certain kind that fall that descend who is actually falling from high to low, feminine Allah as well and who both right so Allah says coming down from Jana in the same Surah coming down from Jana a Butoh minha Jamia or when the the Israelites had to descend into a valley and settle down into a lower land, a beautiful missile and intellectual muscle tone. So here he says llama Yeah, bitumen ha Shatila. There are rocks that fall from the fear of Allah, they fall down out of the fear of Allah. When Allah who Allah feeling I'm not alone. And Allah is not at all unaware of the kinds of things

00:04:54 --> 00:05:00

you're up to the kinds of things that you're doing or whatever you're doing. Now. The first thing I want you to keep in mind

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

As we go through this conversation is Allah talked about three kinds of rocks, one rock explodes, lots of water comes out, the other rock cracks open, and there's some water inside. And the third rock falls, it simply falls. But there's no mention of water is just mentioned of the rock falling. So keep that image in mind. Because as you know, throughout this series, we're going to be painting a picture in our mind, right? So there's three scenes that are being painted by Allah in this remarkable idea. And it's actually this is an image that's going to be built upon even further. But it's interesting that water is continuing because the last example we saw was also of heavy rain,

00:05:32 --> 00:06:07

right? There was water involved there too. And there's water involved here, also, so that there's a continuation. But anyway, so the first thing I want to show you is ALLAH is talking to Bani Israel. And he's talking about multiple incidents that they saw in their career. So when they escaped Iran, the way they escaped around is the water split open. Right the water spill and they were with Masada and salaam when that happened. Now, if you and I were standing next to Musa alayhis salam and you see a river, because water retains its shape right now it's the shape of this bottle. Right? It's not going to turn into you know the shape of a pencil inside it and not fill in the rest of the

00:06:07 --> 00:06:47

bottle. That's impossible for me to see. Right. But when water split in front of their eyes, now they know in Allah Allah coalition Kadena if you have less Iman and Allah at that moment your iman is 100% and if you have some doubts about Musa alayhis salam being the Messenger of Allah, no longer do you have such doubts. Right so your your your Eman is rock solid because of the evidence you've seen with your own eyes. The Quran begins Alladhina Umino Neville live they believe in what? The unseen but the Israelites it's not the unseen anymore. They've seen the miracle. They've seen it. And when they crossed the water, they're in the desert. When they're in the desert, they're

00:06:47 --> 00:07:23

dehydrating. They're dying. And if they if they say like that they're gonna die. So what does Allah do? What Allah Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah sent clouds over them, the clouds would follow them in the desert, they will literally follow them over the desert is Allah provided shade for them a portable umbrella in the sky. And then of course, it's understood when a cloud follows your rings on YouTube. So it calls them also you know, and then on top of all of that, Allah says, Once Allah Alec will Mandawa Salwa, the essential nutrients for anybody or proteins and carbs. And so you need to meet some kind of protein, you need some kind of carbs. So Allah sent down Monday and salwaar, which

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

took care of both proteins and carbs, and by the way, essentially fats too. So all your entire macros are covered for the guys that are into nutrition. All your macros are covered and your hydration is covered. But that's still not enough because you still need to have enough water to drink enough not just rainwater, you need to have water to drink enough. You need to want to have water to be to clean for other essential needs, right so water is in necessity for any civilization. So it will be asked like a hijab. For unfortunate mean Huth, Natasha, Dinah. Allah tells Musashi, some take that same staff that was used to park the water, take that same stuff. And now, you know,

00:07:58 --> 00:08:33

there's going to be 12 Springs come out. By the way, this is not the first miracle. The first miracle they saw is when the staff turned into a snake. And when the hand turned white, and when they saw the nine signs in Egypt, so they've seen and they've seen and they've seen and they've seen and they've seen, it's not like one, one miracle, they've seen multiple miracles piling up one after the other. So I thought at that point, you should your Eman should be at some really, really high level, right. But it seems that that wasn't working, something was missing. Something was something was off. So there's no reason left to disbelieve. Because you can't even come up with a logical I'm

00:08:33 --> 00:09:11

I'm not so sure if he's a prophet. I don't know if I believe in a god you. If you were living among the Israelites, you couldn't have these philosophical arguments. You couldn't have questions about the teleological or the cosmological or the ontological arguments for the existence of God, you wouldn't have some kind of naturalistic explanation for the lack of an afterlife, or, you know, God's intervention, or you wouldn't have that because the evidence is overwhelming in your face. Everybody's seen it. In fact, even if it saw it, even around the King of kuffaar, before he dies, tries to take shahada so like, you've seen it all. You've seen great kings crumble in front of the

00:09:11 --> 00:09:47

might of Allah subhanaw taala. So like, there's no doubt there's no room for doubt left yet. What happens then is they have another incident where one of them kills the other. And there were 12 springs of water because they were 12 tribes of Israel so cuddly Miko, Luna smashed Raba home, every tribe had their own water so they wouldn't get into a fight. But somehow or the other two people got into a fight, perhaps two different tribes, two different families. So now there's a dead person all of a sudden, and nobody knows who killed the guy. Right? And Fedora two V ha Allah describes in the same surah you started pointing the finger at each other you did it. Your people that are your

00:09:47 --> 00:10:00

people are always looking at us funny. Not as you people you probably kill one of your own and want to pin it on us. You're trying to make us look bad. And this was about to turn into a whole civil war situation. If we don't find out who the murderer is, this is going

00:10:00 --> 00:10:15

To be a big problem, right? So they come to Musa alayhis salam to solve the problem. None of none of them are willing to, you know, admit the guilt. So Allah has a Musa they Salam turns to Allah for an answer. And Allah says I have a solution for you slaughter a cow.

00:10:16 --> 00:10:19

And I said to him, you know, who are you kidding?

00:10:20 --> 00:10:26

You want so does a dead person and you want us to make to have some beef? Like

00:10:27 --> 00:10:57

this? Is this a joke? Now the problem is when Fidel is about to kill you, Allah says, strike your staff. And at that time, they don't say oh, so Okay, so the biggest army on Earth is coming to kill us and you want to wave a stick? That's gonna solve our problem. But did they see the problem solved before? And when Allah commanded him to strike a strike a rock and water came out? Have they seen that before? So when Musala Sam comes in, says, Allah is telling me that you should slaughter a cow, given the background.

00:10:58 --> 00:11:07

You shouldn't be like, let's get a cow. Let's do this. But somehow they're like, no, no, get serious. Well, how do we solve this problem? What do you mean slaughter a cow.

00:11:09 --> 00:11:45

And Musa alayhis salam is about to lose his temper with these people are a little bit late and Hakuna mujahadeen, those words are interesting. There's multiple ways you can understand it. One way you can juggle is addable Cetara, Allen Musharraf also. So if you can't control your temper, you can become jarhead. Musa alayhis salam has a temper you guys know when he throws a punch, bad things happen. Right? So that already happened in Egypt. So when they come and say, Are you are you joking? I mean, I'm pretty sure somewhere in his mind, he's like, ached, Allah God, just one. Just let me give one just to make it make an example out of one guy. But he knows if he does that, not only will

00:11:45 --> 00:11:48

that guy die, they'll be two dead bodies, not one dead body.

00:11:50 --> 00:11:56

So he asked Allah as refuge to control his temper against these people. Right are the villa and Hakuna manager healing?

00:11:57 --> 00:12:31

So this entire story of the cowl continues? Okay, fine, fine. Oh, okay. You want to start okay, what kind of what kind of call you want? Can you be more specific? I don't understand this cow. You didn't give me enough specific details about the size, the measurements? And what kind and then there go. And he Musa alayhis salam goes back to speak with Allah brings an answer. They mock Him, they troll him again. Send him back, get more details, get more details. Finally, the colons of being a yellow cow, right. And just I'm summarizing the story for you yellow is significant. Yellow is important. Why? Because in the history of the Israelites, when Musa ASAM, left to speak with

00:12:31 --> 00:12:48

Allah, they ended up creating a cow that was golden, and they ended up worshiping it. Right? So what's the closest thing to a living to a golden cow? What's the closest thing to it? For a living example the yellow cow, right? So you're going to slaughter that yellow cow, it will be breaking the shake, you still have left inside you.

00:12:49 --> 00:13:26

Because you were worshipping that thing. Now you see a living golden cow, you're gonna slaughter it. Right? So it's a detox from the remnants of the ship that they already got going on anyway, so he they finally you have to find this cow Mufasa rule and say it ended up costing them enormous amounts of money to get it killed, killed anyway, they slaughtered the people who bought the HA, Allah commanded them to strike some part of the slaughtered animals flesh onto the dead body that was lying there. And then what happens is it It wakes up from the dead and points at the killer and dies again. Right so now they've seen a dead person come back to life and then solve their problem. This

00:13:26 --> 00:13:39

is what happened and so Allah says every whoo hoo, ha. Gallica your healer who noted that is how Allah brings life to the dead. So not only was this something that solved their problem, now they even got a preview of your monkey AMA.

00:13:40 --> 00:13:55

Why? Because what's going to happen on your monkey Allah, the double come back to life. So you've seen a you've seen evidence of the result of Masada, Islam, you've seen evidence of the might of Allah azza wa jal, you've seen evidence of the truth of this whole thing and you've seen evidence of resurrection

00:13:56 --> 00:14:01

aka like, any possible hotbar that can be given to you to boost your demand has been given.

00:14:03 --> 00:14:40

And Allah says, God, Almighty, Allah, Allah KentuckyOne. The end of that is 73. The I want to talk to you about the 74 This is 73. He says, And he shows you His Ayat, he shows you His miracles, so you can think so you can understand. Alcala is two things to understand also to think. And when we think of thinking and understanding it's up here right. Now, what happens in the next is Casa Kulu, Bukom, Nevada, then your hearts became hard. Now, this is the first thing I wanted to bring to your attention today. There's a few things to bring to your attention. The first thing I want to bring to your attention is, Allah was talking about what they saw. And when you see that in here, there's no

00:14:40 --> 00:14:41

doubt left.

00:14:42 --> 00:14:54

There's no doubt left, right. And when that happened, Allah said fine, I showed you these out so you can understand so nothing is missing in your understanding, and still, what became hard.

00:14:55 --> 00:14:59

hearts became hard. So now Allah is making a distinction of separation.

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

between the heart and the mind.

00:15:02 --> 00:15:39

You and I can become knowledgeable in this thing we can understand we can be convinced we can have all the rational arguments to debate with an atheist. There's it's a thing around here in UK in parks, right? You guys debate with atheists, it's a thing. So you could do that. You could, you don't have all the delight and for the miracle of the Quran, and all the arguments to make with your Christian friends, or Jews and whoever else, and you've got your arsenal packed up and ready, Doc delune, you understand, you get it, you have the evidences, and you get to analyze talking to people who get it, they know, they understand. And that's still what became hard. Your hearts became hard.

00:15:40 --> 00:16:14

There seems to be two pieces, two things inside me inside you inside everyone. That decides what kind of person we become, what kind of choices we make. It's not just our minds, our minds, think of our minds like a robot or like a calculator or a computer. It's rational. Right? The mind says fire burns, you're not going to touch it. Simple. It's a rational conclusion, you won't do it. But we're not that simple. Are we? We're more complicated. There's plenty of lung surgeons, lung specialists that are smokers.

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

That's not rational.

00:16:18 --> 00:16:23

And when you talk to them, Hey, you know more than most people on this planet, the damage that smoking does to your lungs.

00:16:24 --> 00:16:32

You've seen it, you've opened up people's lungs have seen it? Why are you smoking? Sometimes I get stressed, you know,

00:16:33 --> 00:16:41

just to calm my nerves, sometimes your kids job, it gets to you. Oh, to calm this down.

00:16:42 --> 00:16:44

The alcohol is telling him the mind is telling him Don't do it.

00:16:45 --> 00:16:48

And his heart says yeah, you know what, sometimes it's okay.

00:16:49 --> 00:17:00

So the heart is so powerful, it can shut down your brain. This the Arabs have seen the young men here will understand it. Lisa will be matura when you're in love, no consultation helps.

00:17:02 --> 00:17:37

Poor poor parents bring the guy to the Imam please talk to him, that they bring him to a therapist, please talk to him. Then they bring in with somebody who leuke on him. And they'll bring them to a psychologist and they bring him to a grandfather doesn't matter what advice you give the guy's like, okay, okay, I understand. I understand. No, I don't understand. Because you're trying to you're trying to reach him here. Where's the problem? Problems over here. It's all said. So Allah is pointing at a reality for us. That our, our relationship with Allah, and our relationship with the truth isn't just a relationship of learning. That's up here. There's also a relationship of the

00:17:37 --> 00:18:11

heart. Right? Some people say for example, it's Ramadan, we should spend the month of Ramadan trying to understand the Quran. Because the Quran came to be understood, I'm the first advocate of that the Quran came to be understood, and it's a tragedy that we spend the entire month of Ramadan, and our understanding of the Quran does not evolve at all, it stays the same as what it was, every year, every Muslim should be doing something to understand the Quran just a little bit more than a little bit more next year, then a little bit more next year, Quran came to be understood. But that doesn't mean that you don't stand and listen to the Quran being recited, or you don't recite the Quran

00:18:11 --> 00:18:48

yourself, or you don't do even if you don't understand it. Why? Because that even if it doesn't affect your mind, what is it affecting? It's affecting your heart. Those are, those are two sides of a coin you gotta have you gotta come up with solutions for both of them. And the Quran did that, or the indeed that it addresses both of them. So Allah showing the Israelites they were very rational, logical people, but they ignored the needs of the Spirit, then they ignored the needs of the heart. So Allah says, even after that your hearts became hard. Even after that your hearts became hard. So we have to ask Allah, no matter how smart and knowledgeable we become in our deen that Allah does

00:18:48 --> 00:18:49

not allow our hearts to become hard.

00:18:50 --> 00:19:30

And he doesn't allow that to end. So what does it mean for the heart to become hard? We will see that through this example. What does that look like? What are the because you know, literally speaking, if you if you say hey, this person's heart became hard, and you do surgery, and you look at their heart, it's still pretty soft. It didn't crystallize. It's not physically hard. So why is Allah calling it hard? Why is he calling it stiff? Why is he doing that? And then he says for here calendula then they became like stones. They became like stones and then he made he makes a really strange comment. He said l shadow Casselton or even more tight in stiffness than a rock

00:19:31 --> 00:19:59

and the Russia you could have said, Oh AXA and if I hear called gyro, I will AXA examiner here Ronnie. But he said a shadow Cosworth. And what does the shadow Cassata do? It adds the meaning of shed or shoot or shed the onto the word shut down Arabic doesn't just mean intensity. It actually means to tie something tightly. When you tie something tightly, it's called Chedid. So for example, you have in the Quran for sure duel with UK

00:20:00 --> 00:20:37

For Shuttleworth, how to tie the ropes of the prisoners tightly, so there's no gap. There's no opening, right? Sometimes when I was younger, I didn't know how to tie my shoes properly. So my solution was keep making knots on top of knots on top of knots, then it won't be undone. The problem with that is when you do that too tight, what happens? You can't open it because it's too tight. You can't find any opening in it. Right? So that's, that's, that's shutdown Arabic. So he's saying they became so hard that there was no gaps left for anything to get in. When something is so tight, nothing can penetrate. So now Allah is describing them as worse than stone, these hearts became

00:20:37 --> 00:21:05

worse than stone. Then he talked about how many kinds of stones how many kinds of rocks, three kinds of rocks, but actually what you should understand from this parable, he's not talking about rocks, three kinds of rocks are talking about three kinds of hearts. Three kinds of hearts is three kinds of rocks. And what's also really beautiful and interesting is that their hearts, the ones who saw the dead come back to life and still nothing changed for them. Those hearts are worse than all three.

00:21:06 --> 00:21:49

Allah is basically saying in this ayah you people are so bad, you're worse than rocks, even rocks can break. Even rocks, crack open, your hearts don't break. Your hearts. Don't crack open, your hearts don't fall from the fear of Allah, even or even rocks are more humble than your hearts. Even rocks are not as rigid as you are. And the point that's being made is what you can call being desensitized. It doesn't matter what you see, it doesn't matter how incredible and how powerful the miracles of Allah in front of you are, how clear the evidences are, it has no effect on you, you're completely numb. It has no bearing on you imagine the effect of water on soil.

00:21:50 --> 00:22:26

What happens to the soil is there's a little dip in the soil when the water drop hits the soil, and then the the water penetrates inside the soil. And if there's any nutrients inside the soil or seed seedling inside the soil, it starts feeding that nutrient. And then grass starts coming out. Plants start coming out tree start coming out, right? Because the water was able to get in. Now imagine the effect of water on something even harder than rock. What's going to happen to all that water. It doesn't matter how much water there is going to bounce right off, isn't it? Nothing's gonna penetrate inside. It's tougher than rock. Big to understand this example better. When I was first

00:22:26 --> 00:23:04

studying it a long time ago, and I did some review today because this is the stuff I forget easily. I studied rocks, like I wanted to understand what I was talking about rocks, I don't know much about rocks, other than I used to throw them around when I was a kid, I don't know much. So one of the most interesting things about rocks, there are different kinds of rocks that Allah created in the world. And many of them have tiny, tiny holes in them pours on them, and passages on them that if for 1000s sometimes millions of years rain has been coming, or they've been they've been poured on enough, the water particles pass through to the heart of the rock and start forming water crystals

00:23:04 --> 00:23:40

inside. They've even opened up you can find you watch YouTube videos on this. They found like millions of years old rocks that they crack open and there's water inside that's been trapped for millions of years inside. Right. So there is even though on the surface, it looks smooth from the touch of our skin. It doesn't look like it has any any holes in it. It actually does. It is penetrable and it does get inside, then there are other formations of rock that are because water sometimes has a little bit of acid in it. Right. It's not just purely h2o. So sometimes that acid starts corroding and beating up on the rock and softening and softening and softening it. And that's

00:23:40 --> 00:24:18

actually eventually when entire large boulders even crack open. And you'll find ancient water inside them. Sometimes what happens is there's enough because I was looking at because the image is out of a waterfall or like a gushing, you know spring coming out yesterday a gentleman who learned how that's like a waterfall, and that's after enough rain and enough exposure to water. There's enough chemical reaction for a long time on rocks that they get weak enough that they collapse. And the water that was being kept inside starts gushing out. And that turns into a waterfall. In other words, with enough exposure, even the hardest surface breaks with enough of a reminder of the Ayat

00:24:18 --> 00:24:59

of Allah, even the hardest surface, even the hardest hard will open up. Right? So Allah gave this these three examples. So let's explore these three examples. One way that I tried to make sense of these three examples, is from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in which he described believers Gibreel Ali Salam asked him the three questions you know as being the son will Iman will Islam right, so there were three questions. Tell me about your son. Tell me about Iman and tell me about Islam. And you can think of it that way. So I'm gonna use this analogy to explain that to you. When you think of Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Radi Allahu Taala and who he was already pretty much

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

ready to believe

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


00:25:01 --> 00:25:40

right, he was on the verge of believing anyway, he just everything that was needed to become a believer was already there even before the prophets like Selim says anything about being a messenger. So when the moment the prophets, Allah tells him about this message, he doesn't say, Let me think about it. Or I need some time to process or Yeah, you know, you give Dawa to somebody and you're like, I saw something on their face, maybe it's having starting to have an effect. And maybe in a few days, you know, it'll, we'll see for him, it just gushed out. It was already already it was gushing out. And this is similar to the example Allah gives when it comes to light. He says Yeka do

00:25:40 --> 00:26:17

say to her, you will do? Well, Williams has found out that the lamp is so pure, he compares the heart to a lamp, the oil in it is so pure, that it wants to go catch the fire. Even the fire hasn't touched it yet. It wants to jump out at it. Right. So that's kind of like the sun. So there are some people who are looking for the truth so badly. They're looking and searching like Solomon and Pharisees looking for it. All over the world. He's traveling to look for the truth. And when he comes into contact with he just jumps at it, it just jumps out from him. And he just grabs onto it right? And this happens throughout history, there will be people that are going to jump out and just

00:26:17 --> 00:26:58

capture catch on to the truth of a gentleman Hill and howl. But if you look at the rocks around the world, just you know, if you go through a mountainous region, or you're going through a rocky area, right, especially if in Makkah, for example, did the majority of the rocks explode into waterfalls? It was like one right? What in their experience, they know that this and the Israelites know that water bursts open when Musa alayhis salam strikes the staff water bursts open. They know this is a rare occurrence. Just like the people of Sun are actually a rare occurrence. Those people that are looking for the truth, a young man Imagine a young 18 year old who's thinking about God which 18

00:26:58 --> 00:27:33

year old is thinking about God you know they're thinking about the new portable gaming system they're thinking about the next UFC fight they're thinking about you know how to make a little bit extra money they're thinking about girls they're thinking about you know if they can get away with drinking with their without their parents finding out drugs, chillin with their boys. How can I you know, cut school and nobody find out? There's stuff on a young man's mind the stuff that interests the young man sports, you know, working out looking good clothes, cars, you name it. That's what's on his mind. Which 18 year old was sitting there thinking about the sky and going Who put this here?

00:27:34 --> 00:27:42

What Why am I here? Why do I exist? Why do I have this thing in my mind? Why is this emptiness? I feels that's not an average 18 year old.

00:27:43 --> 00:27:47

That's not an average 60 That's not even an average 80 year old nowadays.

00:27:48 --> 00:28:24

Right? You can spend your life not ever because those are rare people in the world that say you know what, there's more to this world than meets the eye. There's something deeper here I need to find it. I need to go on this quest. And so those few rocks that just there's so much Iman already inside them that is just gushes out. Tara you downhome tofield Amina Dmitri in the Quran. Some Christians were like that when they heard the Quran, their tears gushed out of them like this water. The water just burst out from them. And they say in condemning Coverley he Muslim in such beautiful phrasing. They said we were already Muslim before this.

00:28:25 --> 00:29:03

They were meaning the heart already had Islam. There's just just a little bit of a tap. And that's it. It just gushed out, you know. So that's one kind of rock. And then the second kind of rock Allah says yes, Chicago. Now imagine that the same rain. When it came it touched some rocks were already so filled with water that when a little bit of water entered it, it just popped and couldn't take any more pressure, right. Other rocks are pretty tough. There's a long period of rain before the surface gets weak enough and there's enough pressure that what happens. They crack and when they finally crack, you find that there was actually some water deep inside. You don't find a whole river

00:29:03 --> 00:29:44

of water. But it's not dry inside. There were drops in there. While this look completely dry on the outside. Even this had water hiding deep inside. So you have people in the seal of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam who don't look like they're believers until they become believers like Armando Hatha very aggressively against Islam before Islam, or Hamza or the Allahu Anhu. Very aggressive against Islam before Islam, but something happens, something hits them that cracks it. And then you find that there is water inside, there's the mound, there was human inside there too. And just like that, there may be like I was giving you jokingly an example of an 18 year old young

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

man or even a young woman who wants to just enjoy life party, hang out, go out, chill, chill with the boys. You know, go on a trip, Do this, do that you know and just be on their device or whatever else. And then something happens some extra

00:30:00 --> 00:30:26

Marines, maybe it's a car accident, maybe a friend dies. Maybe they heard something they never heard before. Maybe they accidentally showed up at the masjid accidentally, under standing in prayer and something hit them that nobody else hit, hit, hit them. But that person, that young man standing there got hit with something, they felt something they never felt before. All of a sudden, what happens to that rock? It cracks. And all of a sudden, this young man wants to stay for tomorrow.

00:30:27 --> 00:30:29

And then he wants to see for two more and his friends are there.

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

Why haven't you?

00:30:33 --> 00:30:37

Does that? Do you sure you're okay? Yeah, the rock cracked open.

00:30:39 --> 00:31:12

Mind emerges when the man was deep inside, you were covering it with distractions, you're covering it with the social life, you're covering it with entertainment. But somehow the water got through anyway, it got through. And somehow something happened that cracked it open. And when that happens, you see a different kind of person. You just see the true the inner self reveal itself. By the way, it's very easy for it to crack open. But we're not like rocks, right? Because the rock once it's open, it's open. Not humans, once it's opening, close it back up.

00:31:14 --> 00:31:19

You're gonna have all the mime gushing out and then say, I think that's enough rubber bands over.

00:31:21 --> 00:31:22

Right, you can seal it back up.

00:31:23 --> 00:31:35

Now there's a third example Allah gave, which is also really interesting. Because in this third example, Allah says the fall from the fear of Allah. If you if you maintain the imagery of rain,

00:31:36 --> 00:32:20

then it's raining, some rocks exploded, water started gushing out more flooding, some rocks cracked open, some rocks didn't change at all. Some rocks are exactly the way they are, but the soil around them and the smaller pebbles around them are starting to shift because there's so much rain. So that rock that was lodged in place is no longer as secure in place as it once was. And so what happens it starts rolling down the hill. Now it didn't crack open, but it's still what it's still falling. And if water inside is the representation of iman, because emaan inside is something pure and water is also something pure. If that's the representation in this third rock that Allah mentions, Allah

00:32:20 --> 00:32:59

didn't bring up water, at least not on the outside. Maybe by implication you could say the water is on the outside but not on the inside. Right in the first two rocks it was on the inside. Which reminds us of sort of Herat, where Allah describes the difference between Iman and Islam. People became new Muslims in the in the in the dozens and dozens, sometimes hundreds of people at the same time. And you know, the year of new allegiances after holiday BIA after the Treaty of Abia people heard that Islam is a powerful force. And they decided to join the Muslims sometimes for political reasons, the tribe leader would come and join Islam. And when the tribe leader joins Islam

00:32:59 --> 00:33:33

automatically, the whole tribe joins Islam. Okay, so because people tribal people are like that when the leader does something, everybody does it right. So the leader would come and say, Hey, I got 50 People, I'm ready to accept Islam, all of them will do what I say. So not each of them was not like, let me think let me hear about Islam. Let me learn about Islam. No, no, our leader did it. We're doing it. Right. This is similar to what I ate and Sal Hulu Nephin. in Lehi, Florida, this is not farther and farther than there's not one person at a time thinking for themselves and all of it. They just became Muslim. Now they start thinking because the the new 50 People that became Muslim,

00:33:33 --> 00:33:51

they're like we're believers, just like everybody else. And Allah says, no, no, no, you new comers. These new Bedouins, these new Arabs that have come they say that we're believers, we become we have Eman Kalam told me no. Well, I can Hello Islam. No, no, no, you don't get to say that. You have Iman. You should be saying you have accepted Islam.

00:33:52 --> 00:34:05

You don't have Eman but you have accepted Islam. What am I yet holy Eema no vehicle, Polycom, Iman, if I use this example, water hasn't penetrated your rocks yet.

00:34:06 --> 00:34:43

eemaan hasn't entered your hearts yet. That's what Allah says eemaan hasn't entered your hearts yet, which is if I'm borrowing this analogy, the third rock does not have water inside it yet, but it still falls right? It still falls. So what does Allah say to those Muslims? Allah is saying hey, you're not married yet? You're not a believer yet. But you have surrendered to Allah. You have accepted Islam. What does he say to them? He says what entity are Hola Hola. Hola. Hola. illite coming Alikum che if you continue to obey Allah and His Messenger, none of your deeds will be taken away from you. Yeah, Lidcombe, Yanni and Cusco when Allah kimchi not none of them will be reduced

00:34:43 --> 00:34:59

from you. So the idea then is even if you don't feel anything in your hearts yet, that doesn't mean your prayers didn't count your sadaqa didn't count your good deeds. Keep doing them anyway. Even if you don't feel anything. I will Allah will not let them be wasted

00:35:00 --> 00:35:02

still fall from the fear of Allah.

00:35:03 --> 00:35:12

The third kind of rock was the one that falls from the fear of Allah by the way, falling, falling. Does the Muslim ever fall Yeah, we fall in such that Domi

00:35:13 --> 00:35:48

Raghu as a kind of semi fall, and then such dies the full on fall. So the rocks falling, the closest thing to that is an image of a believer as a believer also what? Following and that's an act of obedience to Allah. And we do that even out of the fear of Allah, even if we haven't tasted the sweetness of the prayer yet, you should, I should still be afraid of missing the prayer. I should still be afraid of that. So Allah mentioned this third piece, which is fear, you know that, you know, maybe my relationship with Allah hasn't evolved yet. It hasn't become a beautiful relationship yet. Maybe the most, the biggest the dominant part of my relationship with Allah is actually still

00:35:48 --> 00:36:00

just fear. But that's okay. That's still good, because it will eventually you do this enough time that if though, if the rock keeps falling enough, it keeps slamming into things and following it up, what's eventually going to happen to that rock.

00:36:01 --> 00:36:42

It's gonna crack. That's the imagery. So he says, he says we're in the mean Hala Maya bitumen Hachette Allah, when Allah will be laughing and I'm not I'm alone and Allah is not at all unaware of what you people are doing now, this last part Allah is not unaware of what you people are doing. This is actually very strong negation Mala who will be referred if you know Arabic than the the normal way of saying that is while a Salah hoo ha feelin lace Allah who love it, and I'm not I'm alone. But when you use ma as opposed to Lisa, it's accurate. And you know, I shall do Nafion tomorrow and then about ADA, one Allah who be love feeling, I met Allah. When Allah does that. What

00:36:42 --> 00:37:23

this illustrates is it's almost as if Allah is saying, it's not Allah who's unaware of what you're doing, actually, you people are unaware of what you're doing. You people, you pit you people think you're so smart. You understand? You don't realize because because your hearts are so hard, you don't even realize the gravity of what you're doing. So Allah is now describing people whose hearts become hard, and they have no real awareness of the seriousness of their actions. They lose sensitivity to that. Another really beautiful dimension of this is if you study the surah earlier you'll see you'll see the word for example for the Baja Maka do. Let me call Yama loon call further

00:37:23 --> 00:38:07

Baku How am I gonna do you have I don't follow my talk Marwan so Fidel is mentioned multiple times in the Surah. Allah mentions the word for doing is yes, alone and tough alone. And if I do, but here he doesn't say, you know, when Allah Who beloved and I'm not alone, he says, well, Mala have you laughing in ama terminal? So what's the difference? The easy way to understand this is I'm breathing right now. But I'm not thinking about it. Oh my god, it's time to exhale. I'm not doing that. It's just happening. It's a subconscious act. And the subconscious act is actually a fear. And that's called a fairly, but the fact that I'm choosing my words right now to speak to you. Is there a

00:38:07 --> 00:38:10

thought involved in that? Yeah, that's actually omelet.

00:38:11 --> 00:38:17

So ML is an action in which the intention is conscious, a motivated action

00:38:18 --> 00:38:44

and a subconscious that you're just doing it without even thinking about it. Thoughtless action, what would you what can you call that? fear and fear, it can include everything, but I'm gonna it's more specific. So I'm gonna list a hospital fear and the way you can think about those more specific it's a subset of fearing Allah use this word here because the entire subject was the heart. And the actions are connected to the heart. Now, now watch this. There's people who pray,

00:38:46 --> 00:39:09

but their heart is in the wrong place. Is that possible? Somebody's praying to show off. Is that possible? Somebody's praying because their friends are praying not because they want to stop possible. Somebody's praying because their mother put pressure on them to start doing drama if they don't pray. Otherwise they're not interested in praying at all. Even even quietly, they make in Pakistan. They make you say the NIA right, in Urdu, because otherwise it's not Salah if you don't say it.

00:39:10 --> 00:39:17

So near Katana Java gardener was able to get a timber escape and talisman or pay up a missile silver jewelry Obj.

00:39:19 --> 00:39:22

The you say the full year Daniela hook but

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

you do the full year. The point is, Allah knows whose intentions lie where but where are the intentions there in the heart. Subject matter was the heart. So even when he mentioned actions he mentioned the actions that are directly rooted with the heart of Allah will be Lafayette and Amma Dharma doing one last piece of this remarkable, remarkable parable is in describing these three kinds of hearts, Allah has described people throughout the world Muslim or non where they are in their Islam, because there are people that are on their journey to Islam and they don't even know it.

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

There are people that will become Muslim five years from now, but their journey towards Islam has already begun. We don't know that they don't know that. But that's already begun. Like Salman al Farsi didn't know that he was going to end up in Islam but the journey had already begun. Right on top had already started his journey to Islam. He didn't know it, it already begun. It's almost like even the prophets they don't know that they're journeying towards becoming a prophet and they don't even know that journey has already begun. You know, that Allah Caledonia Musa you came right on schedule, Musa like it was a schedule you had to go through, to get to where when he meets Allah on

00:40:30 --> 00:41:10

the mountain, right? The same way Allah is describing now for believers and for currently non believers, but potential believers that their hearts lie in three different places. Some of those people are just ready, they just haven't heard about Islam. And the moment they hear this, Hey, this is what I was looking for. I looked everywhere, this is it. And there'll be other people something will happen and then they'll crack and Allah is setting their story up in life for that rock to crack. And other people may even be Muslim. And they say I haven't felt anything, but I'm ready to continue to obey Allah out of fear of him fears enough. That's not the only relationship I have with

00:41:10 --> 00:41:47

Allah. But right now that's all I have. You know what? That's good enough. I'm afraid to go to *. I'm afraid to make Allah angry. That's still okay, that's still enough. And eventually that heart will open and that relationship with Allah will become one of Allah Who will you live in harmony? Right? So he won't be alcohol phulkari by the he only he'll be will you Latina, um, and it will be the loving friend, the Associate of those who believe. Right? So and they'll become us Allah to Allah, they'll become close friends to Allah, may Allah grant all of us that in the states of our hearts. One last I think important observation. That's a side observation. But I think it's so so

00:41:47 --> 00:41:49

important for Muslims to think about,

00:41:50 --> 00:42:06

especially nowadays, but even throughout history. This is a very subtle lesson, but one should we should not be blind to Allah said your hearts became hard after you remember the dead guy came back to life. And the very next is as your hearts became hard. Who's the you?

00:42:07 --> 00:42:17

I mean, the idea was revealed in Medina. So who's the you? I said, Allah said Yeah, Bani Israel, right. So it's the Jews of Medina. But the Jews of Medina weren't talking to Musa

00:42:18 --> 00:42:36

and they weren't talking about who killed who that happened 1000s of years ago, right? So they could say, Allah didn't say, here is Katana Abba. UQAM nevsun When your when your father's father's father's killed somebody, and we told Musa to kill he said, If you don't have son, you killed.

00:42:38 --> 00:42:48

This is what's gonna add a Cornwell. Hamam. We put shade over you. He tells the Jews of Medina, we put shade over you. But he didn't put shade over them. Who did he put shade over?

00:42:49 --> 00:43:16

their ancient ancestors? They'll say I have nothing to do with this. Why are you talking to me? I didn't do any of this. I wasn't there for economic MOBA. We parted the sea I didn't see no see, what are you talking about? Why are you talking to me like I was there? You have to understand why that's happening in the Quran. To understand that know, that people, nations, they love remembering their history. But only the parts of the history that make them feel good.

00:43:18 --> 00:43:25

So what do nations do? We, we were right next to Moses, when we crossed the water.

00:43:26 --> 00:43:31

The next generation, we we were the ones that God sent a cloud over us.

00:43:33 --> 00:43:53

It's not you. It's pretty I'm pretty sure it's not you. But since you are that nation, you talk about the people of the past as though you are standing right next to them. You are with them. Okay. nations do this. We signed the Declaration of Independence. We did this. We won this war. We fought them. You fought them.

00:43:54 --> 00:44:06

You, you you were there? No, no, this was 1783. This was 1837. You know? And, you know, we did this to the French. And we did this to the Germans and the Germans is really?

00:44:07 --> 00:44:16

Why? Why do we have that kind of thinking? Because nations like to take pride in their identity. So what do they do? They take certain events from their history.

00:44:18 --> 00:44:23

They pick special events. And they take those special events and say, This is our history.

00:44:24 --> 00:44:27

And in between those special events, there are lots of pretty bad events.

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

They don't make it into the history.

00:44:31 --> 00:45:00

So when you go to, for example, many countries United States is I mean, I've been educated, or I would say indoctrinated into three countries in my life as a child. So I had Pakistani education. I've had an American education and vaccine education, you will read Pakistani history, and I'm pretty sure in North Korea you read North Korean history. And in India, you study Indian history in Bangladesh, you study Bangladeshi history, but you don't study the corruption of your politicians. You

00:45:00 --> 00:45:26

You don't study the you know, you don't study the economic disparity. You don't study the crisis. You don't study the religious conflicts, you don't study the ugly, dark, smelly parts of your history. You study how we won that war, how we how our hero did this, and how we did this. And if our military had a victory that will make it into the chapters, every 13 year olds are learning about the military victory, when that same military was killing civilians, that's not going to be in the history book.

00:45:28 --> 00:46:05

That's not going to make it. Right. If there was some minority that we were oppressing, we're not going to talk about that. But if we were the underdog, and we won, that's gonna make it into the history book. So what are nations do in order to preserve national pride, they become selective about their history, people do this, not just nations, people do this. If you're going to talk to somebody about who you are, you will take the most important accomplishments of your life. I graduated from here, then I went to this and then I had a job here, and I worked here for five years, and I was this and I'm a doctor now. And I'm all the all the best moments of your life, you

00:46:05 --> 00:46:15

don't say and I usually have lots of really bad arguments with my mother and my brother and I hate each other. And, you know, I just I don't know how to keep my socks in the same place. And, you know,

00:46:16 --> 00:46:39

that's not going to make it into your profile, you're gonna highlight the nice, juicy parts. So what a nation's do nation's highlight the nice juicy part, by the way Muslims do this. For Muslims, our Islamic history, oui, oui, oui, we were under the Khilafah of Amara, the Allahu Anhu. The halacha. Our history is the color of our Salahuddin.

00:46:40 --> 00:46:41

And now

00:46:43 --> 00:46:45

nothing else happened in the last 1400 years.

00:46:47 --> 00:46:51

There's just like, four things happened. And they're like, Oh, my God, I feel so good.

00:46:52 --> 00:47:13

You know, and that's exactly what the Israelites were doing. They use the word we to take pride in who they are, and only highlight the chapters of their life, their career, that were victories for them. What did Allah do in the Quran, he started highlighting all the chapters that they like to ignore.

00:47:15 --> 00:47:25

Or they mentioned the first part of the chapter and they conveniently ignore the second part of that, okay, you crossed with Musa that's pretty cool. But then you became ungrateful to Musa you didn't mention that. were let go.

00:47:27 --> 00:48:07

So now Allah says you like using whee Ha, you want to be one with those people? Okay, then I'll make you one with those people. If Qatal don't have son, Fedora, don't feel you kill the person, you're pointing the finger at each other, your hearts became hard. They became worse than stone. If you're so connected with them, then the same disease they had is the same disease you have. Now, is that an important lesson for Muslims, we have to be honest with our history. Our history has beautiful moments. Our history also has dark chapters. You know the best. The best of my past was me. The worst of my past was also me. And if I'm going to lie to myself that the worst of my past didn't

00:48:07 --> 00:48:16

exist, then I can't ever be I can't ever make any sincere genuine progress in my life because I'm not being real about who I am.

00:48:17 --> 00:48:50

The best of me is me and the worst of me is also me. And I have to know for Allah Maha Fujairah, our Taqwa I have to be aware of that. Just like Muslims have to be aware of their mistakes, just like Allah is making the Israelites aware of their mistakes. The point of that is not to humiliate them, actually, the point of them is to make them understand how important it is to be honest with your history. And by the way, it's almost as if by saying thammakaset Kulu buco member the Dalek, Allah is saying when you and I become selective in our history, that's because some parts of our history feel good on the heart.

00:48:51 --> 00:49:15

Right. And we want to keep our hearts exactly where they feel good. And anything that challenges that we don't want to deal with. We want to reject those the water that hits the heart, that is taking away what we have preserved inside. We want to keep it exactly the way it is so high and Allah the bias that our heart can create. The last comment for today in sha Allah, why is the heart so important?

00:49:17 --> 00:49:34

You know, worshipping Allah believing there's one God believing there's an afterlife believing that the Quran is the word of Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of allah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. These are all at some level intellectual things. So why is the heart so important anyway? Actually, the heart is where

00:49:35 --> 00:49:48

the real challenge lies. The real challenge is not in the mind. That's easy. The real challenge is in the heart. When Allah says they fall from the fear of Allah, think about that for a moment they fall from the fear of Allah.

00:49:50 --> 00:49:59

You know, if somebody does something from the fear for the fear of Allah, if you decide let's say, for example, your family has a business and a part of the business is haram.

00:50:00 --> 00:50:03

Let's just say Not you, not you people in Birmingham, not here.

00:50:05 --> 00:50:12

Part of the business is haram and they decide this Ramadan. You know what? I'm done? I don't want any of this. I'm getting rid of this business.

00:50:14 --> 00:50:19

For for what reason? Is this person falling before Allah out of what? Out of fear of Allah?

00:50:21 --> 00:50:30

The wife is upset. The older brother's upset. The uncles are upset. The children are upset. Over I thought we had Turkey vacation. We're not going to have that kind of money anymore.

00:50:31 --> 00:50:34

We're gonna get that car. We're not gonna get a car anymore. We're gonna take the bus now.

00:50:36 --> 00:50:51

What are you getting? Are you getting us new clothes for eight? No, no, no last week's clothes, pull them out. iron them. Put them in the laundry for the first time do it. Because not just because we're shutting down the store. So are you saying we're not gonna buy the house? No, we're gonna stay in the apartment.

00:50:52 --> 00:50:53

We're gonna stay in the apartment.

00:50:54 --> 00:51:30

Also, we're not going to throw the big eat party at the new house that we're just about to buy it. No, no, not annoyed. But what if people didn't say everybody's gonna talk? What about the wedding hall? You booked for your daughter for the wedding? No, we're not gonna book that hall. We're gonna do the Nick at the masjid. We can we can afford the hall. What about the catering? No, we're gonna cook food at home. And now two dishes. Just one just chicken. Just chicken. That's it. Because I'm falling for the fear of Allah. But I'm falling before Allah for his fear. If you're going to make a decision for the fear of Allah, you know what's going to happen? Before you make that decision

00:51:30 --> 00:51:32

decision. There's lots of things that you'll be afraid of.

00:51:34 --> 00:51:48

What am I what are my brothers gonna say? What's my mom gonna say? What's my wife gonna say? What's my husband gonna say? Well, my children gonna say what's society gonna say? What am I going to do? Where am I gonna get this from? Who is going to problem solve for? Oh my god, there's the list of things that will terrify you.

00:51:49 --> 00:52:33

When Allah says someone falls out of the fear of Allah, You know what that actually means? They no longer fear anything else enough. They still fear those things. But none of those fears are powerful enough to override the fear of Allah. That's what that means. That's when a rock is ready to fall for the fear of Allah. And that's a that's a conquest in the heart, man. That's not an easy battle. It's easy to say I don't worship idols. I face the Kaaba, and I don't have any idols in front of me. I worship only Allah. Yeah, worship only Allah. But do you fear only Allah? It's not easy to say that if you're being completely honest, it's not an easy battle to only fear Allah. We, Allah says,

00:52:33 --> 00:53:08

well, that's actually does show NASW have shown don't fear people fear me. And even if you say, I'm not afraid of people, let me start making a list of people you're afraid of, even if you're not afraid of them killing you. You're afraid of the look, they will give you you will, you're afraid of their disappointment. You're afraid of their comments. You're some people are afraid of being alone. They're terrified of being alone. They're afraid of being rejected. They're afraid of being humiliated aren't these fears. And sometimes those fears can be so big, that you're ready to disobey Allah because you're not ready to face that fear, isn't it?

00:53:09 --> 00:53:25

Same thing happens with love. Same thing happens with temptation. Where you can you can have something in your heart that you want so bad. Now, whatever Allah says, doesn't matter. The fear of Allah is not enough to get rid of that powerful addiction you feel in your heart.

00:53:26 --> 00:53:57

This The reason the heart is so important, and the heart becoming hard, what does it mean? I don't feel bad at all. When I disobey Allah. I don't feel bad at all, that I'm not listening to what Allah says that I don't care what he says, or I can listen to it, I can understand it, I can talk about it, but I won't act on it and it doesn't affect me at all inside a shadow class while it's even harder than rock. That's what happened. You could see a miracle of God in front of you a dead person come back to life and it affects you not at all.

00:53:59 --> 00:54:26

The terrible state that can be that we can be end up in we can come to the masjid listen to the Quran being recited, sit in it, there's understand it, we can be exposed to the water like the water was being hit. You can have the light in front of and you're not just you're not going to follow it. Not gonna follow up on it, everyone go in, it will go that's the state of the heart that Allah is terrifying yourself. In this eye, it's actually a really, really scary thing that Allah says and look at the next idea. And I'll end with that.

00:54:27 --> 00:54:39

You know, Allah says, I've talked to my own mula comb. Allah then turns to Muslims, the Muslims in Medina. They thought that we were in Macau before and the people of Macau worshipped what

00:54:40 --> 00:54:59

idols they don't know about no prophets they don't know about Musa alayhis salam and Zakaria and Yahia and Jaco but they don't know any of that. They don't know about Accra the way we know. They don't know about you know, Jambo Kiama they don't know about Allah the way we know. But when we come to Medina, we find these people they know about Musa too

00:55:00 --> 00:55:34

They know about Adam alayhis, Salam to the nobody knew how they said, um, to, they know about Allah to, they know about Revelation to oh my god they know they know, they know, oh, this is gonna be so much easier than people of Makkah because they have so much knowledge they're so close to us already. Just gonna we're gonna talk them a little bit, they will immediately accept Of course they will accept this is so much easier because the Arabs could say what around us to say, Massa May Allah be happy about in Allah willing. We never heard this before. Will you come up with this? But when we come talk to our Jewish friends or come to talk to our Christian friends, they have heard

00:55:34 --> 00:55:53

this before. So they're really good candidates for Eman. Allah says I thought Morona and mula comb. Are you really hopeful that they're going to accept what you're saying? What God kinda for the coming home? Yes, Morona Kalam Allah Sama, Johari funa home embodiment aka Lu, or home yet Allah moon,

00:55:54 --> 00:56:02

he says and there were a group among them, they used to hear the speech of Allah directly. And then they will change it after they understood it.

00:56:03 --> 00:56:34

And they were doing so knowingly, they were knowingly changing the word of Allah among among them. What how can they do that? How can they know that it's the word of Allah and still change it? The disease is not in the mind, where's the disease? It's in the heart. That's how serious the disease of the heart can become. May Allah azza wa jal protect our hearts from becoming hard. And may Allah make our hearts like the rocks that crack open or that gush forward or at the very least fall from the fear of Allah BarakAllahu li Walakum fille Quran Al Hakim when a foreign UAE or combine it with a clock in Somalia
