take you to the believer
in have an agenda tell yo Murphy show. Well, in fact, I'm going to spend some time on the cya.
There's no doubt about it people, the companions of genda May Allah make each and every one of us and all the Muslims and people from them.
The people have done not the companions of Ghana today in nows habit, as habit agenda, and young today, Fisher hood, in fact, they are in very busy activities.
They're doing all kinds of stuff. So if you imagine gender is gonna be boring. I guess it's really pretty place when you sit there.
You know, especially because I come from a Pakistani background, I have problems imagining gender.
I'll tell you why. Because embarks on a culture. If you live in a really, really nice house, that means you have all this exotic crystal handmade crafted stuff in random places in your house, that's supposed to be an obstacle course for normal human beings. So if you sit you have to sit like a like a like, you're almost like, at gunpoint, like,
because if you enjoy yourself on a couch too much, you'll tip over something or bloodrager crystal or the, the, you know, the goose thing that your mom bought or whatever, you know, so you have to like really like, you know, and when when kids have too much fun. Oh, the look, you should see the mom give them
like little Kareem is running around because his friend came over, but she can't yell at him in front of the guests.
Because that's like her arm.
So she does this, like the angry look masked by the artificial smile,
captured with grinding teeth. And she says, green button. Can I talk to you in the kitchen?
And so so.
so when I think of like, a nice place, I feel like I should be really uncomfortable here.
But Kryon says you're going to be in general, you're going to be doing all kinds of crazy activities. I don't know. I should comment. One more thing about my wonderful culture barks I love our song. She said one more thing. You know what we do with kids? Make sure they're not happy.
If a kid is having a great time, like yes, and he's playing with a toy, the mom will come sit up in San Benito.
Can you be a human for a little while?
He's just being a kid. He's just happy.
What do you want to do? Like, become a librarian right now? Like, why are you so?
God, this is totally the exact opposite of Arab kids. Arabic is gonna do whatever they want. whatever they want. I read seriously, you guys, you Arabs.
Man, your kids are afraid of nothing. Nothing.
You can't tell an Arab kid. I'm going to tell your dad. He goes okay, I give you the number.
Anyway, anyway, I gotta get back to this.
The people of john are going to be in all kinds of activities. Sugarland busy activities, they're just hanging out there doing them having a party over here. They're playing a game over there. And then he says Paki hoon. And they're going to be overjoyed laughing having the best time of their life. phakisa is actually a fruit, but a tasty fruit. When you eat it, it puts a smile on your face. And so Allah says these activities are constantly going to be making you smile, there's not going to be a single activity where you go
you know, when you play games at home or whatever, eventually you just go out. Guys, that's enough. That's enough. There's a moment where you're really enjoying it and then it just kind of dies down. You know, and you don't know where to stop when you realize it's really gone too far and you're really bored out of your mind. No really should stop. You're just waiting for the first person to leave the party. She really don't want to be the first one. So you wait for them to leave. Okay, I think I'm gonna get out of here. That's what you do. But in general it's just gonna be a party and people are just happy on top of happy on top of happy fisherman in fact he Hoon You know why?
Because their book is overlooked. You don't have to be Maka damansara. home. What does Allah say about the people of Jenna
he's havin yesira his his audit is easy. Allah doesn't even check it item by item. And in this dunya activities are supposed to exhaust but in general, it's going to be beautiful home was watching. This part is a little pG 13 but I'll tell you anyway, they and their spouses, but it could also mean groups they belong with people they want to hang out with but this is actually referring to spouses, then their spouses are going to be feedly.in there are going to be
In shades of Rocky on top of couches, this is actually if some of you are familiar like Victorian kind of furniture old school furniture where you have beds and you have bed posts and you have these curtains that draped over the bed making it a little you know, exotic or you know whatever that's where they're going to be chillin with their with a girl
that's what's gonna happen
and Alice has with Becky they're gonna be chill leaning back relaxing, but not sleeping.
A bed is for sleeping. But they're not sleeping. They're not sleeping because in general, there is no what there's no sleep. Allah doesn't want you to miss a moment of joy. A moment of happiness. By the way, this scene would make no sense if you don't know what I'm talking about Indonesia.
I don't have to spell the rest of this out. Goodbye. I'm gonna move forward. Okay, let's get on. What our home is our own in it meeting even sitting in bed. You get hungry when you're sitting in bed. What happens? Where do you go? The kitchen. What else has they will have in it? those beds around right around the beds. They'll have all kinds of fruit. Right there. You don't even have to get up and you can eat in bed.
Sisters don't appreciate that. It's okay. You can eat in bed and the strawberry can leak over on the charger that you just got washed. And it doesn't stain
that can I tell you that is that's what I want agenda. I want to eat on a bed.
And I want to eat the greasiest food with the most solid stains I'm gonna like
they're gonna have all kinds of fruit with a home my and our own. And they're going to have whatever orders they place. Whatever they asked for your agenda. I'll give you everything here. Like, I don't know, I feel bad. I should ask. We can just have something aloof. You know, you don't go to somebody's house. They take care of you. They give you food they give you like, kebabs and chicken and whatever you like you have any ketchup? Like you know
it's such a nice thing to do. You know, I do it personally Actually, I do it. But uh
it's such a bad thing to do. But in general, there is no hesitation you can actually ask Allah Allah I was thinking there was this ayah where you mentioned birds.
Can I just kind of Yeah, sure.
And it just, it arrives to you. You're being served. Every everything you can order. Everything you can ask for and just immediate room service. You don't even have to call zero and wait or nothing.
This is the scene in Jenna. And then it just gets epic on top of epic. All these rewards combined, are pale in comparison large Hey afoco Hagia Salah moon hola Morocco, Rahim
salam, salutation peace. Some kind of peace. Oh, by the way, says As salam it says Salah moon, which means it is unknown. This kind of Salam is not known.
It's not the kind of Salaam you can ever know not until you get there.
This is the word code and of love The Rahim, a word from a master who's always been loving, merciful. By the way those who made it agenda. We have been we have seen some people right now. Who are ready the agenda and the surah messengers are where the agenda there are few followers over the agenda. The one who was killed Remember him? Where's the agenda? Did they go through an easy life or a hard life? They went through an extremely hard life and unless as he's always been loved been Rahim, or Rob who's always been merciful and loving. He made all those difficulties easy for them, even Indonesia.
Even Indian he's the one who facilitated the path for them. When the Xena Jihad rufina then the unknown sabudana those who struggle for us we open up doorways for them. We guide them to our different multiple pathways. Allah is the one who made the hardest struggles easy for people he made the fire cool for Ibrahim Ali Salam you know, the fire doesn't get cool on its own. Allah does that.
So he was always and so he now he says Salaam I was the one supporting you all along. I was rooting for you all along.
There's nothing more that can be said. It's so perfect that the conversation agenda just came to an end because where do you go from there?
Where do you can't go anywhere from here? So now we're back in the scene that was hit pause on where would it be pause?
No, and resurrection. And they said this is what our man promised. And the messengers were speaking the truth and they're all going to be brought before and they were told today nobody will be wronged you will only be given what you were what you worked for. I remember that. And then immediately you know you guys watch movies. And of course you know you're in Houston. You're so religious, but some of you who are from like Oklahoma who watch movies you know
There's this there's two scenes happening.
And you go into one scene, you cut out, you go to the other scene, then you cut out you go back to that first scene. Now we're gonna go back to that first scene where meanwhile you were being told you're only going to be given what you were, what you worked for. Now he says 1000 Yama, you
can separate yourselves today criminals. Be the distinct today criminals, you cannot mix with people anymore. Why did he say that? Because among them may have been people hasira cause the other man I believe, he feared or a man in the unseen in this dunya you couldn't tell the believer from the disbelievers sometimes, maybe some people have the mind inside of them would never told anybody. They only obey the law and worship to lie in private, without ever letting anybody know. Nobody will ever know them except Allah. And today on Judgement day when the entire nation is raised, unless has separate yourselves. And some people are surprised what why is he going on a nice side?
And they won't even know why. Only Allah knows those people. On dazzle Yama, you have Muslim on criminals separate yourselves. Now, as a level speak to them, Allah is also speaking to them, He gives them his final speech, and an ad la comida. Bonnie Adam, didn't we take a promise from you children of Adam, and that that Buddha shaped on that you should not be worshiping shaitan. Actually, the promise was to not obey shaytaan or to not listen to shaytaan. But here it takes another form. And Allah says that you won't be worshiping shaytaan. What are we learning that to Allah, when somebody listens to shaitan, and gives up all hopes of guidance, and ignores all
pathways to truth, then that is no different than the worship of shaitan. That is the worship of Shabbat
in the hula kumada amin, no doubt about it, he is to you an obvious enemy. You know what we're learning here that's also really, really important. Really, really important
is that when you refuse to use your mind, to understand the world around you, and history and Revelation, and you block yourself from all three of those, then you are at the mercy of shavonne
then you don't even know it, but you're worshiping Him. That's what he wants. He wants the human being not to be able to use his mind properly. So he never finds his way. Because you can't find your way if you don't use your mind.
Well, anyway, bodoni didn't I told you to worship me has also lotto muster team. That is a that is a straight path. Wait, this is the first time straight path came up?
When did straight paths come up? Do you remember?
right in the beginning messengers and the prophets Isilon are all committed to a. Okay, this is so beautiful, because when they were when we were told that they were committed to a straight path, some people might have thought, yeah, wonderful. They're committed to a straight path. How am I supposed to do that?
And they're straight path is so hard. Didn't I describe it as really hard? It gets harder and harder and harder. How's the normal person supposed to do that? And the light at the end of it all says actually what I asked for the messengers, I asked you for so much less. All I asked you was worship me. This is the straight This is a straight path. There was nothing more I didn't ask you for much. messengers came Allah says, You read ma Who do you have for unkown? Allah, Allah wants to lighten your burden. He wants you to have an easier life. That's what he says. You need to love will be coming yourself. When are you ready to be come on Rasul?
Allah wants ease for you. He doesn't want difficulty for you. Why am I not a complete demon? He didn't put any burden or constriction or discomfort in the religion for you. You know who makes religion uncomfortable? People do.
People do a lot makes easy in the religion, we make difficulty in the religion. I've learned that the hard way man I'm so grateful for my I consider my most valuable risk in this world is my students and my teachers. I consider them my most valuable list. And my teachers, including especially Dr. Ackerman, do email that protect him. He's like, every time I study with him, every time I sit with him, I go through a hadith with him. I go through it with him. I feel like I just took Shahada.
There are things I've learned. I thought I knew about Islam my entire life. And I sit there and I learned them from them. And I'm like, Whoa, I did not know that.
And it just makes sense. And it's so much easier. And people made it so ugly and difficult.
and I'll tell you about Dr. From later on. You anybody know about Dr. Dre? like three people? Okay, good. You should you should write that name down Akram nadwi aka ra m Akram nadwi. That's how you say it in Siri nadwi and a DWI or a DWI also.
Okay, anyway, just worship. It's simple. This is a straight path. That's all there is to it. When Nakata obala min koenji bill and Kathy Ron.
He was certainly able to miss sky
A huge population of either Delta here, given a huge mountainous quantity of you, he was able to mislead a financial coup turkey known. Why were you never people that used to think? Why didn't you ever exercise your minds? This is taking us back to the three things we should be thinking about. I won't repeat them anymore. You guys know them now?
Why didn't you ever exercise your mind? How did you get on get to you? That's why it's such a person's job is to stop you from thinking. Yeah.
And by the way, this idea that he was able to get so many is not the first time we're learning in the surah. Allah already said, Yeah, Hassan Allah
are soon. What a tragedy for people. Every time messengers come, they make fun of them, who inspires them to make fun of messengers, she thought, What am I to him, and it means to be human, like I don't and have already been. Not a single miracle comes to them, they continue to ignore it, who tells them to ignore it? shaytaan He's always been there, you can fight him, it's easy. Just use your brain and you can fight him. Just use your mind properly, you can fight him, but submit to your desires, and submit to your animal self and you're gonna worship him. That's what you're gonna do. So this this now, I find I'm Taku Taku. And why weren't you people that used to think it's so
powerful to me, that ally is saying the road to generalize for people who think and terrain Muslim. In the Muslim world. We don't emphasize thinking.
We ask people to just do and not think endocrine complaints from the beginning to the end. Why don't you think people are being dragged into jahannam and they're saying local Nana's Morrow. Now, if we only heard and we thought we understood, we wouldn't be here.
we our job is to become people of thought. This is actually that's all I want to do is all I want to do is just to if I can encourage myself, my family, Muslims, to just think about the word of the law. Think about their life. Think about what they're doing. Just think just think with a clear mind. Everything can change. Everything can change. Allah says these are the common yaquina for people that are trying to think these are IOD that are beneficial for people who try to think in other words, if you don't try to think this is of no benefit to you.
This is what we must become. Unfortunately, now we've reduced ourselves to a culture it's so deteriorated that when some child asks a question, why did Allah say that? How come this is this way? Why do we have to pray five times? Why do we have to do this? Why do we do it? Because he's thinking, he's thinking so he asked the question, what do we do?
Let's just reload tauba tauba tauba, tauba tauba?
Come on, dude.
This is an opportunity for you to engage these kids. We're supposed to be asking questions. We're supposed to be answering questions. This is the way of learning. We're not supposed to discourage questions. Questions all the way out on the road to opening up minds. This is I mean, it's a it's a subject on its own, but I want you to understand how the
two are doing. This is the hell that you have all been promised. Was the Hellfire promise to them? Yeah. yaku no matter what, in quantum sadiki they say when is this promise gonna happen? Well, here it is. You asked for the promise right? Here you have it. Have it your way is slow. have young throw yourselves into it today, the Macintosh tech fortune because of the denial you used to do all along. By the way, throwing yourselves being cast into jahannam is like being cast into prison. Yes. Which means this is the second prison. The first prison was chain refuse to think you remember that one. When you refuse to think there, you get this jahannam over here. That's again, the idea of thought
lunia the near prison and then the asset of prison and Yamanashi mana for him. Today, we will put a seal on their mouths.
Their mouths will not be able to see anything. Do you remember the section Section four, in which they didn't use their minds properly? They refuse to think
when they were first told Why don't you have to ask why they have no answer.
When you give them all kinds of miraculous evidence, they ignored it. When you told them to spend they gave the worst answer. So they're the best of it. They have no answer. And the worst of it, they gave terrible answers. Which means their mouths no longer deserve to be used. their mouth is sealed. What to call the Muna at him. Their hands start talking to us. What a shadow Judo home and their feet start testifying.
Lima can we accept one of the things they used to earn? You know what the hell on the hands testify as a place in the Quran Nima shadow Marlena. What are you testifying against us? This guy I own this body right now. Allah has given me I rent this body right now. freecharge
judgment day comes
And allows them to tell resurrects this body, but it's no longer under my control. So I try to move my mouth
doesn't move, then this is unable to speak, and the legs are unable to speak. And they start complaining to Allah Yala, You created me and me, and everything you create submitted to you, but you temporarily gave this guy control. And because he had control, he made me disobey you.
The fetal say he made me disobey you. And this day I disobey you this way. I'm so sorry. And Allah disobeyed you again. But I didn't have a choice because you gave him control. And you're standing there going.
Because there's no worse testimony than yourself. There was nobody I know, no one's a better witness to what you and I did, then our own hands and our feet.
I mean, that's pretty hardcore evidence. You know, previously, we learned that if you're going to be thrown into a prison, the crime should be proven. Nakata called Kodak 31, then they're thrown in prison. At the end of the surah. We're learning that again, if they're going to be thrown into prison, the crime should be proven. How do you prove it? Who are the witnesses? You yourself are witness katabi nuptse kallio Malika shahida. Today, you're enough as a witness against your own self, may Allah protect us from that testimony.
Now, well, oh,
by the way, that's Judgment Day. But even now, even now, we're back to this world again. Well, oh, no, Sha, Allah,
we would wipe out their eyes. You could wipe out their eyes first. And
then they would be competing to find the path find a job soon. And how could they see there's a strange statement, you have to think about what it means. Let me translate it again for you. Had we wanted we would have obliterated wiped out their eyes, then they would have competed towards the path, they would have raced towards the path. But then how could they see? Or how would they see? Let me tell you what the simple implies.
You need to understand the cancer of the worst disbeliever. You know, the one who's covered from every side that we keep talking about? You know what his cancer is? He's not going to believe but I did tell you eventually he will believe Does anyone remember what I said about eventually he will believe when when he sees punishment. This one will not believe until he sees punishment. So now, this disbeliever, Allah shows in punishment, he takes out his eyes,
he wipes out his eyes. Now that he sees the punishment, he's ready to believe. So he'll compete towards the path.
What's the point? Now you can't know where to go?
You understand? So this is actually describing how hopeless they are until they see the punishment. The other way to look at it Some might have looked at it and I find that appealing to
is that, you know, if you really want an excuse, that there was no reason for you to come to guidance. There was no way you could have understood, okay, maybe you're not educated. So you don't know about history. Maybe you didn't know about any profit. So you don't know about what comes from above?
Possible. It's possible I have no access to an education in history. And I have no access to access and Revelation. But there's one thing I still have access to what is that?
The world around me I could see the truth around me the creation around me I could have at least you know, you know, pondered on that Allah has had I just wiped their eyes out.
And I wiped their eyes out, then even if they tried to compete towards the past, they wouldn't have been able to see maybe then they would have had an excuse. Maybe then because they could say how could they see?
But they don't have an excuse. They have fully functioning eyes wide open a shop. And have we wanted
llama sock now Hamada mcconathy him, we could have mutilated their bodies where they stand. We could have broken their arms and messed up their faces and ripped off their ears, etc, etc. where they stand for mosquito Malian, what are your genome, and they wouldn't be able to move forward and they wouldn't be able to come back. Alive saying I don't have to wait till Judgment Day. I can take you out right now. And you know, he said before he could take them out with one blow. But now he's saying you know, there are other options.
I could turn you blind and then start ripping your body apart piece by piece. I could do that.
And then see what happens to you. Because you keep saying oh, we're not going to come back again. Yeah, you're not going to come back from that one.
You won't come back from that one. So you know what I find remarkable about this. This Allahu alum seems to me is molars way of responding to the threats.
You know, the messengers were threatened that ylim tanta, hula joumana como la massana caminada Bernadine. If you don't stop we're gonna stone you to death or torture you in some terrible terrible way. Or you think you can You're the only one who can issue threats
I can give threats to and they don't have to wait till the aka they don't have to wait till the afterlife. I can give you a threat right now. And so he says he could take out their eyes or obliterate their faces or mutilate them and they will
Be able to come back from it. And finally in this ayah that's my favorite. I have this entire suit, I think.
Well, but no, I'm Mirabeau new Nikes who fell healthy, have an IRA.
And whoever we would give old age to, we would start breaking them down in creation.
In the previous iarla said he might mutilate your bodies. Yes, he might mutilate their bodies. But you don't have to wait to believe that he might mutilate your bodies, your bodies are falling apart as you age anyway, a sign of that eventual mutilation is already happening every day, as your body deteriorates as you age older and older and older.
Whoever we give old age, we start reversing them in their creation. Remember, Lucy said something so beautiful about this is always stuck in my head. For years, I think I said he did like 15 years ago. He said that when a child is little he does this.
Always looking where
kids are like this, and their necks are like this. Ever notice that?
They're always looking up trying to climb something, you know, pull something down.
One can be picked up, just up, then a man gets really old.
What happens is back.
And he's always looking when
a child was looking towards his growth. And a man is looking towards his final home all the time.
He's looking at the dirt all the time. That's where he's headed. Allah has already made it easy for him to remember. He bends his back down. He starts deteriorating human creation. So panela
Why don't they know another way of looking at this ayah that's been very powerful for me to appreciate is that as people get much older, they actually start developing habits like children.
People can get easily upset as they get older, they can get more dependent, their health deteriorates, so they can't go and clean themselves or dress themselves, etc. They need help with that they can't feed themselves anymore. They can't go around themselves, which is the same disability as what? children, children. They become like that. And that's the age they reach Nicola Bader Elementary. So he returns to a state where he knows nothing after having known something dementia hits, you start forgetting stuff, you don't know the words anymore. You stutter in your speech, which used to be the case when when you were little baby, don't you remember?
You know, that's your uncle is scary, etc.
And then you'd meet an old man, and he forgets. I met a scholar, it scared me It reminded me of this is a panel I was traveling in a taxi with him.
And he said, Peter, how are you? I said I'm very good. hamdulillah How's it going? Mashallah, where are you from? I said Dallas. A minute later in this video, how are you handling? How's it going? Mashallah, where are you from Dallas? A minute later, but how are you?
How's it going? Mashallah, where are you from Dallas? Oh, Mashallah. Yeah, like Dallas?
Have we met before? Yeah, I think so. Yeah. I didn't like startle him say you just asked me that.
But he has a very severe case of like, immediately short term memory loss. You know, just every five minutes you have the same conversation.
And by the way, who has that? Who does that over and over again.
kids do that. kids do that. I buy candy chocolate,
Because chocolate is just like
it's on the loop.
This is an app for that or something.
