Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan continues his talk on an elaborate explanation of the second part of Surah Al Mulk.
We are made aware through the Surah that if this universe is carefully observed, not even a single minor flaw can be pointed out in it and repeated observations will only second this inference. The nearest of the seven skies has been adorned with stars by Allah referenced as bright lamps wherein they serve the dual purpose of guiding people in their journeys and pelting Satan and his army if they try to overhear something.
The power and sustenance of the Almighty is so evident in this universe that it bears evidence that those who deny the Day of Reward and Punishment will have to face the torment of Hell. Whenever a group of these rebellious people will be flung in hell, its gate-keepers will ask them whether a warner had ever warned them of this punishment. They would admit that a warner did come to them but they rejected him and had replied that the Almighty had revealed nothing and that whoever believes that the Almighty has revealed anything have, in fact, deviated from the right path. They would also confess that they had never tried to listen to and understand what had been said to them, otherwise they would not have met this fate.

Once again everyone Somali Kumara today, Ricardo, so we're entering the longest section of the surah, which is section two. This is from Iris number five to roughly 15 and in this passage, we're gonna see a couple of interesting contrasts, particularly an emphasis on the people who are stubborn and refuse to listen to the message and deny the messenger or the subtle Salaam. And they're going to be given some pretty graphic description of the punishment that awaits them in Hellfire, followed by a very brief account of the you know, the believers and some hope that's given to them. Actually, there's more worldly hope that's given to them a lot quickly mentioned that they're going to have
forgiveness and reward and then emphasizes more that he's going to be taking care of them in their current struggles. And then this passage comes to a conclusion. It begins However, with will aka Xena sama, dunya be masabi we certainly created the sky The lowest sky at dunya means the closest or the lowest sky with we decorated it with masabi and masabi is a plural of Misbah. Misbah has a small Allah for a device that simulates the morning and that actually means the lamp simply speaking a lamp. So let describes here beautifully the skies as a lamp or the stars as a bunch of lamps. Now, in this ayah the beginning what occurred actually it suggests an oath. So Shakuni doctrine Allah
says, well, Mojito will kiss me Liberace. Kamala Anya, you know, the fact that law is used. It's almost as though it's being said, and I swear and emphasizing, we certainly did create the skies, you know, and we beautified them with lamps, we beautified the skies with lamps. Now, what's remarkable to me in this ayah not just the word ceilometer masabi lamps because they are lamps are decorative, they are a symbol of beauty, especially in a time that itself is scary, they bring smoothness they bring comfort, right? Because nighttime is a dark time, it's a scary time. And then the fear goes away. And beauty is restored inside a home because lamps are on. Right. So it's a
symbol of beauty, especially when other than beauty surrounds you. But the continuation is pretty interesting, first and foremost, in the previous IR that we just finished covering a lot as we just said, you're going to look at the sky, look at all creation, you're going to get humbled. Right and he mentioned seven skies. And now he says, forget looking at all seven skies. If you just even looked at the first guy. I mean, you don't need to be humbled after observing the continuity of all seven. If you look at just the lowest of them, which has been decorated by stars that should be enough.
And then additionally, if you look at the continuation from another point of view, the kingdom of Allah, Tabata kalindi be at the hill molt Allah will actually begin with his heavenly kingdom first before describing his kingdom on the earth. So he actually begins with the stars in the skies, and then he'll bring the matter down to the earth. Okay, now what's your Allah How would you militia 13 and we made the skies those seven skies and actually the lowest sky rather into regime regime is the plural of the word regime. regime means stoning or something that's cast towards someone else
IE my your maybe he or Rami mean hedgelaying or hotjar when we hit the Smithsonian my role will muster regime is actually in the meaning of module that which is thrown that which is cast, like the word Hulk is used in the meaning of MK Luke Hulk Colajanni mK lokala right so Raja margin, which is human, the shell team when we use it, to throw our cast towards the devil's now what in the world does that mean? Allah describes this in some more detail elsewhere in the Quran. in ASEAN a sama dunya be Xena tail kawaki we decorated the lowest sky with beauty with with beautification, that is to say large stars have one Min colleciton and married Leia, Santa Ana LLM Allah, Allah, it's
actually a guarding against every kind of devil and it throws you know cast towards them while you the food. I'm in college and they're shot out from every direction. So let's talk to you about what you might look at as a shooting star or media or something like that right. But what's
Really interesting here to me is that Allah azza wa jal actually described beautification first and the purpose second, like there are two functions of the sky that are mentioned in this ayah. And the first of them is that it was beautified with with with lamps. So beauty has been given an emphasis, and then the functional which is and by the way, these lamps are also used to secure and they're thrown to Castaway devils. Well, john know how to do militia thing, we'll add another home adversary. This actually is to illustrate that actually, that that's to Allah, beautification decoration style is a value, it means something, you know, we think about style versus substance,
sometimes, right? I don't care about style, I just want substance. If you look at Allah speech, and unless creative, the world like created style is a very big part of what Allah does. Along with substance, these are both meaningful things, and they must always go hand in hand. You know, when people only concern themselves with style, beautification, that which looks good, feels good, sounds good, then it becomes empty. It doesn't have meaning. When people only concern themselves with substance, and something that is profound and deep and meaningful, but there is no style, packaging it properly, then it doesn't go anywhere. Nobody benefits from it. So I mean, look at it, even from
a messaging point of view, you can have a scholar saying the most profound things that substance, but the way in which he says them puts people to sleep, there's a lack of what style, it's not going to go anywhere, it's not going to fulfill the purpose of enlightening people, you have to have both of these things. The same thing, you know, by the way, in the world view is being an elaborated, it's Hong Kong man, after all, it's the creation of the love the exceeding the loving and the exceedingly merciful. So what Eliza was only suggesting is that, you know, in this world, we shouldn't have like this extreme Christian like worldview, that this world is a curse, and the only
blessing is in the Sahara. Allah wants you to appreciate the beauty of the sky.
You know, and he uses the word, Xena, we beautified it, you know, he's the one who and if you don't appreciate the beauty, you're not appreciating something a lot did. You're supposed to appreciate the beauty around you, you're supposed to appreciate the wonderful things allies created in this world, that's part of our faith. You know, this is not, it's not a curse, you know, it's a means to an end. This is actually this this kind of debark, right, this life leading into the next life. And I've said this often, I can't say it enough, because we have to, we really have to have this worldview, much of what Allah describes in Jenna, is actually only relatable because we find
glimpses of it in this world. Right? Allah will describe fruits and trees and rivers and you know, gardens and a beautiful spouse, and none of those things are relatable, and none of those things are a motivation for me to work for, for unless I have a taste of them in this world. You know, if I had no experience with any of those things, then I wouldn't even know what that means. Why should I strive for it? You know, I have no appetite for it, I have no desire for it, why should I even work for it? So actually, Allah made this world, like a preview for the next. You know, that's, that's what he did, he made those two things seamless. And so that's one thing. The other thing is even in
the message of the Quran, I hope you appreciate by now in what I'm trying to illustrate, there's an incredible amount of style in how Allah speaks. There's a lot of beauty in how Allah speaks. And even in the Quran itself, it is a perfect mesh of style and substance. Right? And in the religious discourse, and when we talk about the deen of Allah, there are some people who are only concerned with style, and there yet other people who are only concerned with substance and these are both extremes. These are both extremes here. And there are people who are only concerned with kind of, for example, in public speaking, just to click and pound the podium and yeah, and everyone's like,
there's awesome style, but you didn't really say anything.
You know, there was no substance. And on the other hand, there's a lot of substance but there was no style to captivate. What does the Quran teach in the way that the Quran articulates itself? It's this blend between those two things, in what Allah created and in what Allah revealed. And what Allah revealed there's this this this perfect meshing between those two things.
So we'll look at some of the you know, some of the Navy masabi which are not how to jumilla Shelton, by the way, even if there are rebellions going on against a lot in much more capable circles beyond the earth in the heavens, if there are shell team trying to, you know, defy Allah, Allah will take care of them in the skies. put this in perspective, who do you think you are?
He can put he can take care of intergalactic warfare. As you know, you're and you're thinking that you're going to get away with stuff. You know what after dinner Allah home as others eat, and we've prepared for them. The punishment of a serene we'll dig into the word essay, but before that, we'll dig into it tonight. It's a bit of a soft problem for students because a tada is actually
From ad the
ad it's actually in the data is actually a you know, kalibata doll and EU data and so it's actually the tires replaced the doll is replaced with a TA. So the root letters of this word are actually hind darlin doll. Okay, so what are the other means to prepare? It's to prepare. And but then what's the difference between Adda and atid? Because they're both used in the Quran. Okay, Adela, Han Johanna massage masala and then after dinner, both of them, right? It's actually when you when you have a long dinner, it's more commonly pronounced after dinner.
It's just easier to pronounce after dinner as opposed to saying dinner. So that's where the word comes from. But what does that benefit that we get from it from added actually means to count
is to prepare the right amount for something. Okay, so as you know, in Arabic, we use huddling to prepare something and to make something presentable. But it is a little bit different in that it actually you accounted for exactly. For example, if you were preparing for a party, and 10 guests are coming, so you prepared 10 tables, 10 seats, and you know, 10 plates and 10 you know utensils and 10 glasses, this is because you had exact count and you prepared Exactly. So the use of this word for the punishment of Hell is very powerful because Allah says he'll give exact punishment.
He'll give you exactly what's deserved, you know. So even though Allah azzawajal has his water bottle, he gives more than expected, he'll give more than expected were in Jannah. But he'll give exactly as accounted for in Jana. Like it's exactly precisely the punishment that is deserved attention alohomora. Sorry. Now, a little bit about the word sorry.
You don't know, Alan?
What because he was different. He actually refers to three things in the Arabic language and refute refers to something setting ablaze, or to combust, to something to set on fire. And also for something to rise. Those of you familiar with the Arabic language might know that the word sacred in Arabic means price. And it comes from the same origin as fire, not just because the price burns you. But because a certain term for who I mean have it, I know you're tough here we are new, because the price Also Rises like a flame rises. That's why it's called sale from sorry. Okay, so that's the the correlation between those two things. Again, people like Kevin forest, who would connect two
meanings together, and say every root gives you two things. So something that rises, and something that sets ablaze, those two things are in a salad, by the way, sorry. And they use this as a figure of speech to the assessor of Nahum banaban, we lit them up with arrows, literally lit them up, like you know, we can light them up. But this could also mean that they literally have, like, you know, fire pointed arrows like they take the tip of the arrow and set it on fire and then light them up. But also means we killed them with arrows. It's a figure of speech. So all isn't is an old Arabic practice guy here at the New York Pharaoh fell out of the way of service. That's called a sorrow. So
only when you dig into the earth, and you do a little, you know, in ground barbecue thing. And in ground flame, that's actually called a spiral. So it's a ditch in the earth. So it is actually a flame that rises from below, which means dug into the earth and then a fire is made a pit of fire is made, and from it, fire comes out. And it keeps the flames keep on popping up. So this this is the idea that
means someone is thrown into the fire into this, someone has thrown into a site and they set on fire. They themselves set on fire and when they're set on fire, you know, when things are thrown into fire, one of two things happen. When you throw something in the fire, it starts melting and decaying or whatever, and the fire is unmoved. Or you saw something in the fire and like the flame rises, right? That would be
the kind of fire when you throw something in it. The flame rises. So the these gym that are thrown in it, the flame rises. And this is actually an interesting indication. And a response to the question. Well gyms are made of fire. So what's the point of throwing them in the fire? Because they were like, feels like nothing.
You know, but the fact that it's said he actually suggests that they as as much of as much as they are made of fire, it'll set them ablaze, and it'll rise above them. So it captures that meaning altogether. Well, Athena cafaro below him. Addabbo, jahannam. Hannon, and along with them, those who disbelieved in their master is the punishment of jahannam. Who are these people? Or first group was the shell team in the skies. The second those who have disbelieved in their master are people and on the earth cafaro Mira beam and now the next name of allah rub,
which is actually one of the central names of alliander Quran. It illustrates the most fundamental relationship between ourselves and Allah. And right, so Allah is merciful.
And his care and His love, His law should lead you to recognize him as your as your ultimate authority as your master. Now, especially for those, and particularly for those who've disbelieved in their master is the punishment of jahannam. Let's let's look at the word jahannam. And understand some things. jahannam comes from Jin Nam, which is argued to be a fallacy origin alcarol buried something a very deep pit, listen to the meanings carefully, a very deep pit.
It's also used in Hebrew language, they say Gangnam that's the Hebrew word, and they use it for a valley full of trash. Again, something deep, a valley full of trash. How does this correspond to the word studied? Say it is a pit?
What does the word jahannam do? It gives it depth.
Right? It gives it depth but also it's a pit filled with what? trash? Right? Well, he lives in a photo below him and what do you do if there's a bit of trash? What do you do in it? You throw things in it. Either old goofy ha when they're thrown in it. So the word throwing is actually playing on the word random, that they're thrown like trash in it anyway. So when the Xena cafaro Bella became a double Johanna Wabi Sabi masina What a terrible place to be that is messy. It is a lot from the word sada which means to be listen to this word just to give you an idea of how deep this pit is. If he had Ethiopia, hooray Lata kannamma Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for Santa Ana watch
button. We were with the messenger and also velocity for them and we all of a sudden heard a loud bang for Colorado Zoo mycelium Luna Maha messenger said Do you know what that is? And Kunta Allahu Allahu Allahu Allah. We said a lion is messenger no matter what that is? How that hydrogen, or Salafi Johanna Manu Sabina aman and Anita Haleakala.
Ha, Jordan, this is a stone thrown down into jahannam 70 years ago, it just hit the bottom
that's what the prophet SAW from scratch. That's the idea of jahannam a deep pit and the fact that the pit is perfect for the purpose of flaming up is in the word sage. So those two words correspond with each other. Now, if you notice that in the previous ayah there was a matter of the sky and immediately it's brought down to the earth the Shelton are gonna get sorry, by the way, the people who their their partners on the earth and the vena cava, rubella, organica, Johanna man What a terrible place to be that is to write this correspondence is very important. What what Allah described the order that he described in the heavens is the same order that he wants on the earth.
You know, this is actually a very powerful kind of argumentation in the Quran. Allah actually calls upon the order he established in the sky and says that should be enough of a reason for you to be orderly on the earth for example was you know was some arafa have other armies on the sky? He elevated it and he placed a balance in the sky he put a scale in the sky, what's the next I'm not that lovin reason? Well, Ki Moon was a lot of tsunamis. And so man, immediately after saying the sky is balanced, he said, By the way, I did that so that you don't cheat in skills
like this, the heavenly order isn't skills. So you're not a conniving grocer.
You know, a grocery store owner, or, you know, Subhanallah it's an incredible correlation between what goes on in the heavens and what goes on in the earth. And by the way, inshallah, at the end I'll show you how this surah is constantly juggling between the skies and the earth and the skies and the earth and the skies in the earth constantly. It's gonna play on between both of them right? So is that little coffee, huh? And when they are thrown in it all coffee has Aitutaki when it lands on Kula minako mama O'Shea fasten your coffee knob. You know, they're like the fact that on coffee they were thrown in it it's like they're being taught like trash is talked about. Like something
worthless is talked about.
You know what, what is what is Trash Trash is what was used to be once useful. And it no longer serves a purpose.
That's what trash is. When a disbeliever is called trash it's not because they were always useless is because they had a purpose and they didn't fulfill it.
And you know, just like all things are created in nature when you don't use them. They go bad.
You know, you haven't you have a fresh fruit. You didn't eat it. What happens to it after a while it's gonna go in the trash because you didn't eat it, it went bad. Allah gave these disbelievers a fifth law. He gave them the ability to think and ponder and reflect. He gave them mine sound minds the ability to hear and consider thing they didn't use those faculties and those faculties deteriorated until they are human trash. And now they are shaped fascinated, by the way their ultimate crime. I already told you the argument embedded even though it's coming later, I said a lot. Keep saying Take a look. Take a look. Take a look. Why because he's answering their constant
criticism. We will only
We believe when we see
oh and now ironically sarcastic language in the Quran when they are thrown in it's semi Allah Harsha he can they refuse to listen in this world they refuse to listen to anything beneficial in this world while you know what the only thing you want to hear then that will be far more effective for you. So me Allah Harsha he can they will hear it in it or they'll hear coming from it. Even Shahid Shaheed is the cry the brain of a donkey, and the outcry of a donkey. They say aku salted, salted Haman, the last cry it makes before it passes out or dies. a heck of a sudden a cry that stems from the chest like
as opposed to
if you cry from your throat, that's not shake. But if you're crying from your chest, and there's a growl in it, that's actually called a shake, and it's associated with the sound made by mules. Now, that's important, a lot could have mentioned any sound but you mentioned the sound made by mules, that is actually to suggest that the people that have already been thrown into hell are they didn't act human, so they were treated like meals
and now they're making the sounds of meals. So it's actually this this insult on top of it, you know, insult to injury that's been added in the word shift.
The other word that they use is is the field washer here, right? And both of them are associated with meals, inhaling and exhaling, actually.
So I show here Kufa solder was a beautiful Hallock,
washer. He was a he called him a little salty. He was a field a welder who was sure he
was a field crowd, you know, sorry, was a field with Roger who it's to inhale
and then socialbakers and inhaling cry and then the fetus and exhaling cries if he doesn't mentioned in this little it's elsewhere. Alcohol aswat Akbar Allah SWAT. Shaka da
de De Luca, actually this issue he called when you're when you keep on crying and panting and it keeps coming from your chest and something that's very deeply it's deep and very high voice. That's why actually they say Javelin Shah heck Javelin Shahab is Toby lunarlon. Our high mountain is called a shark. Right? Because it's a very high, it's a very high sound. So they hear this loud brain violent noise as they are being thrown in it them either suggest at the very moment they're thrown in it, you know, before they experience any of its other horrors. And by the way, because it's so deep, they're still falling.
They're still falling and as they are falling, they're hearing these horrible cries. We're here to fool. And then on top of that we're here to for Halloween lomita and FIFA.
And Sina Tula hibiya and it keeps on rising is that the Hydra who will be with Liana, who wasn't had, they say the word the food is used for when something rises violently. Now, so it means the flames rise. And now we're seeing that they rise out violently. And some say it's the voices that that rise violently Well, he has a food. So Pamela, they're descending and the flame is rising. I want you to imagine this image something is thrown in the fire just goes just goes up. You know, it just it gets violent. And this is actually the the image given authority says definitely be him. Come on. Little humble clean film. If you have like, you know, boiling water and you put something
in it and there's a hiss that comes out of the water. That's the sound that's being made Guadalupe in Joshua Katara who are photo kicker with the Han wah wah, wah, line. Anything that violently erupts is actually called a foe. Well, he had to hold it violently erupts for the home who could unless he knew he had not. So bada is our atomic, mechanical, semi semi human was a human. So actually it is as though it they themselves are the fuel. They are the thing that's going to be burned that's going to give the flame life and it's almost as though the fire itself it's not just previous dwellers of hell that are crying that you're hearing. It's almost as though Allah says the
hell itself is crying and it hears these these this it's next prey coming and it cries out like it's going to prey on this in like an animal roaring before a devours the thing that's going to devour. That's the sound it's making. Then he says the cat and if that wasn't enough the car do Tamiya Lumina leave. It almost rips open in almost separates itself out of its anger. In other words, if you slow something hard enough into a fire, you might see embers of fire or smaller flames just kind of burst out like a poor like you know when you throw something in water it gushes out. If you throw something violently fire, the fire might also gush out and that's the image being described and out
of the intensity of this fire and the violent way in which two people fall. The Fall is so hard to
Do it and it might break apart it might actually scatter the fire might even scattered almost but almost doesn't mean it does because it's contained you know and we're gonna see what how it's contained in the next words. It unfortunately it just is designed to heal and they should be zacchara back and Takata Kakadu Tamiya California to my usual one where to Casa fukada one this is the other meaning this is the majority meaning of this ayah that you know it falls in and it's like the fire is angry that this person came in
and it's the fire is about to enrage and rip apart in anger. You know, you see somebody exploded. They were inflamed engulfed in flames that's actually literally the figure of speech. You got your car do you mean alive? It's actually used for persons you can
use a person almost exploded and became tore apart because they were so angry. And that's actually the rage of the fire described. If baton annalena his son were in the locker and well other than actually this is those who look at it very literally say also this is an evidence in the Quran that Allah has given this fire life. It has feeling it has recognition in recognizes the enemy of a lion shows us anger. You know, and then it says it has got an intention and wants to go after them. Welcome on earth Batali Nanda Topsail with a tequila Taco Bell moseyed. cron establishes that fire you know, it takes a look, it speaks
the kulu has been was, you know, it was
you know, it asks for more. Now, cola OTF we have Hojun every single time, a massive group is about to be thrown in now notice the words folgen coaches used for no small number of people and allies already sarcastically saying I don't care how big your numbers are, you think that's what's gonna save you. I'll take you and your army.
I'll take you and your numbers, we'll carry on folgen every and every time means is that one vote is folgen. But
every single time one massive group of people is thrown in, which suggests another massive group will come and another will come and another will come and another will come but every single time one comes in. And it's being tasked cast in. By the way the word folgen is Nikita, it's unknown. It's called unknown some group is thrown in. And that's actually also here
that we learn it's actually to scare what group is this, but it's also a kind of, you know, a jam, it's an attack, because the Quraysh thought they were the known people. And the people who follow the prophets of Salaam are the unknowns of society. And Allah says in jahannam, you unknowns and your entire multitudes are going to be thrown in. So they weren't even given the respect of getting a llama leaf.
Not even that much, you know, and this is done in Quran elsewhere too. Like for example, in a scene my favorite example leetonia Coleman mountain the robber.
So you can warn some nation whose ancestors weren't warned so epic, like there were so high on themselves and all it just cause them some nation. Some people who like cassava
crush, little girl comb, Allah the mountains. No, no, Coleman maruf, who knows them and look at the grand scheme of things. The Romans know who the Croatia is the Persian, anybody with a real Empire doesn't know who cares about these guys. They're so high on themselves. They're insignificant in the in the map of the world. And yet they're so high on themselves. And that's the nature of arrogance. You don't realize your own place in the world forget with before Allah, you don't even know your own place in the world, you know?
So Kula Uchiha folgen, sila home Hosanna. To ha, it's, it's translated, it's guardians ask, because Anna is guardians asked, but actually, this is also so
let me tell you something about the word khazanah. It's the plural of housing causing is someone who overlooks a treasure or a vault. They say in Arabic has an Alma Eva who you did, he doesn't have the of your money, if you made it disappear, or you hit it away. Like you've put it away for safekeeping and nobody can see where it is. That's actually, the idea of kasana has into shamrock attempt to who, when you do not have a secret that means you've hidden it away. Nobody will ever find it. In other words, this is a secret prison. And husband I suggest you these unknowns. First of all, they're unknown because of the word coach. So nobody knows them. And even if somebody knew them,
they wouldn't know where to go because the prison is secret, because it's got Hosanna Hosanna on it. You see it's unknown altogether. So gulaba calama Luca folgen. Salah home kasana to her it's guardian.
Ask the gatekeepers of hell ask Adam Yachty calmness he didn't didn't know Warner come to you. This is also Toby so Allah Toby, no one who came to you.
Nobody came to warn you. And they're being thrown in that could have been yelled at and thrown in. You know, this is or prison prison orientation before they're chucked in. And the words are so powerful. Yeah. T comb. Yeah, t comm actually means for the it's the word for coming. And it has a few other implications it means to someone to approach you someone to actually literally attack you. Yeah, to come in for him, hava attacking me in the coming of attacking you. Nobody hits you hard with this, you know, but if you look at the literal meaning of what that outcome actually means for someone to come, even casually, nobody even once just nicely came to you, even in some conversation,
forget, like intensely making lots of effort to come to you. You've never even had somebody warn you ever in the least bit. And that's inside the word better than not the word Nazir and I'd like you to understand the difference between and within one.
Another will mean that in the English translation of the Quran, Nazir and munzer both get translated as Warner. Okay. But there is a beautiful and subtle difference between them. Wonder isn't isn't fine. It's it's the it's the active participant what's called an English grammar or morphology, the active participant and the lead is a sofa, it's an adjective. Okay. Now the thing is, when you say one that I am not a month in, if unless I'm warning you right now, if I was warning you right now, you would call me a wounded. But if I was sleeping, you wouldn't call me in with it.
I know there is actually someone warning you whether they're actually literally physically warning you or not, their presence itself is a warning to you.
That's actually a Naveed constant source of warning. There's a constancy in the Vive that is not there in
the fact that the messenger is present, by the way, just put this in perspective, you know, sometimes students, you know, especially students in like Muslim schools, their teachers are extra scary.
So the teacher doesn't have to warn them to behave, if they see the principal or the teacher walked by
the existence of him is a constant source of warning, you understand?
The Prophet Alayhi, Salatu, Salam here, or they were people, if you just looked at them, you should have been like, I'm not behaving how I should. And this idea of Nazareth is very powerful. This suggests that you don't have to be a speaker or a diary or something like that to be an idiot.
There are people in your family, when you're around them, it makes you realize you're not a very good person.
Even if they don't say anything.
Other people start, you know, there are people who, when they see me, they start explaining themselves. I didn't ask them to. But there's a guilt embedded inside. By the way, I'm thinking about praying nowadays. I was like, I didn't ask, bro. I know. But you have a beard and stuff. So I figured.
So my beard becomes
a constant source of warning. There might be a woman, like she's the only woman in college that wears a hijab or something. And I don't know, some girls come down and start confessing their sins.
I'm so bad. I just decided that. Why are you telling me because even if you didn't lecture somebody or warn them or threaten them, the fact that you see someone obeying a law makes you look in the mirror and say, and I'm not doing that, and it makes you feel bad. And that person, their presence becomes unavailable. They're being told, okay, fine. Nobody came in gave you speeches and talks and warned you. They weren't anybody around who made you say, maybe I'm not doing the right thing. You need to have that. Did you even have that much? And I'm gonna call you they responded by now, of course. Why not? No, no, they did. I want you to understand this is not a casual conversation.
They're being chucked into hell. So you have to keep the image the scene in mind. They're about to be thrown in hell, and the guardians of hell who are not nice. They lavon cheated. They don't speak nystatin lm yet Pico nebby
that's not how they're gonna talk.
To a criminal by his nature likes to deflect the crime from himself.
A criminal likes to say I didn't do it. No, no, it wasn't me. No, nobody came.
But judgment has already passed. Fires already they're there they're already starting to hear what
the loud hissing at this point they no excuses won't work. So maybe admission will.
I'm getting I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I didn't Yes, yes, they did come I was so messed up. I was so wrong.
So this this
No tail off is gonna just come rolling out of them. It's just gonna come just they're just gonna pour out now, you know, Alibaba Of course Khadija Anna Anna zero in a warner did come notice naamyaa kulu uttanasana 01 The question was Island yeah tikona de la jolla Booyah autonomy uttanasana d? The answer should be working but no instead Allah uses the word Java and under the Java is calima to do other mobile ah well masaka meaning messengers came making great efforts. It wasn't just some easy casually somebody came by no sources of constant warning came and they put great toll and effort and labor in coming in warning us. They didn't they spared no effort in coming to us for governor.
And we considered now here's it's difficult to translate because we called we considered blank ally. Are we called blink Li there's a there's a blank left here. Because as of now home can be IoT epi Atilla kozub, double mergesort kozub double Ender kozub NaVi kozub, Nabila, like there's multiple mfat. In here, they're multiple objects, or none of them are mentioned. We called it's kind of strange English to be called a lie. What did you call a lie all of it. It's like, there's so many things, we considered a lie. So many things we dismissed as a lie, that the list is too long, we can't even begin to say, I can tell you though, our constant position was no matter what you say,
we're gonna call it a lie. It's almost like no matter what you say, is already in there. Because there's no more for will be there.
So khazanah we, we didn't give the messenger a chance to speak. We never considered the revelation. We never thought about it. We thought all of it was a lie. And we were not going to go back and rethink it. Because rethinking for some people is against their pride.
Right? When you've said something, I think you're wrong. Okay, now, I've said that you're wrong. It's going to hurt my pride a lot to come back and say, Actually, I was wrong. I think you're right.
It takes a lot to do that.
And a nation that is full of glorifying pride. It actually takes somebody who admits they're wrong and humiliates them.
Oh, what happened? made a mistake.
You know, like in politics, if somebody says, I used to believe in this policy now believe in that policy, they'll say he's a flip flopper is this you know what I'm saying? Because Because admitting you're wrong is like an admission of your flaw. And you can't afford that.
And by the way, the the conversation here is happening with big, big, big guns. These are elites of Quraysh for these are public figures for a public figure to admit they're wrong is not easy.
So just don't consider anything. Don't give it don't give it a second thought. By the way, that is already an attempt to crush this attitude has already been mentioned in the first passage fougere Alibaba muscle Somalia look at it again. Look at it again. Maybe you see something differently now. But these people don't want didn't want to do that because Davina, we dismissed it all. You know, well, cola masala himanshi. And we held on to our standards. We said Manas. Aloha MinJae. No, a lot did not send down anything at all. I'm saying no twice deliberately in translation. When I say mine is a la la himanshi. I'd like to hand this this has no, I didn't send anything down.
And my older rough is for refutation. If you say lemina zelena hoomin che is different is yamabushi Stefan de la
lokala had masala masala. This is when somebody claims Allah sent and you correct them or you refute them so No, he didn't know he didn't. What are you talking about? That was our attitude. Nah, get out of here. So they were in they weren't asking a question on they weren't holding on to a belief. They were interested in refuting everything the Prophet was saying.
Oh Namaste namanas Ola has been shaped by the way Nithya interestingly,
is a warner but not a prophet.
So it could be a prophet, but it could be anybody else. Anybody else could be a source of warning.
Culture identity. So it's not like we're exempt or people are exempt today from this declaration that angels might be asking them didn't want to come while I didn't live in a time of a profit. Well, actually there are other people that are constant sources of warning. So he didn't say you know, alarm Yeti camera soon.
Not here. It's a semiotic una de it's more open ended. caja Anna de la casa de la colina Manasa la MinJae. And min is actually done for a job. Not a single thing. Has he ever sat down?

You all you people are in nothing but huge amounts of confusion. You people are massively confused. That's all you people are. Notice the word you people. In other words, the
Warner, whoever he was, is not just one, there's a bunch of them. So they're already admitting this. This is what we used to say not just so that Warner but his followers, or other people like him.
So there were multiple opportunities a lot doesn't just give one people one fee shabalala has always and now you're seeing Santa nealon walk in and see it
doesn't just give you one Warner in your life, it gives you multiple people that are a source of warning, you have to ignore all of them to be in this mess. Because you'll you know, you'll have to be seeing on Judgement Day, not in anti left alone career, but in all of you were clearly confused. Another way that this is
interpreted and yagoona mean Konami, husna tilicho. Far. Another way the same is interpreted is they said a warner came, we said nothing was ever revealed. We're so sorry. And the people pushing them in hell are saying you guys were so massively confused. And they're pushing them in. So it's the angels of hell saying it to these prisoners as they're being thrown in, in anatomy laughable and can be
And they, they'd say, those people said, meaning the people being torn in Hell no. Smell Oh, knocking. Oh, if only had we been the people that used to listen, have we been listening? Had we been listening? And had we been thinking
this had low is used when something is too late.
It's kennametal hustle hustler. It's an adult, it's a device that ustick suggests the regret, like it's too late. I can't change it. Now. If only we used to listen, notice. Allah said, take a look, take a look because they were only interested in seeing, but they didn't want to listen. And if they didn't listen, they never take a second look. See the relationship between those two things. Allah will ask you to listen to him. And when you listen to him, he'll ask you to look.
That's how the process goes. So but they wouldn't listen. So they say local nazma our knakal had we been the ones to listen, and to think about it. This is a huge warning. And a huge This is a huge warning and a huge blessing for people. Why is it a huge blessing because you have we have people in our family who may be and friends who may be very, very, very far from the deen. That doesn't mean we're not we're not saying we're saints either.
But they're not even they're not considered even have the basic expectations from Allah. Right. That's that's the case. And it's very hard for them to listen.
It's very hard for them to listen. And our job is to figure out some way of getting them to listen and if not from us than from someone else. If not this then from that if it's not from a two hour lecture, maybe from a two minute video, maybe a text message or tweet something. We got to get them to listen, somehow. Because if they listen, maybe something goes through, they might actually think
if you don't open the opportunity for listening, the opportunity for thought will remain closed. No goodness Morrow, now. knockaloe. Okay, so, and it's actually the door to thinking is closed when the door to listening is closed. So we just have to provide opportunities for people to listen, you know, no kwinana smell of knocking knock suits America duckboard What the * off I can you command last month. The intent here is to listen, meaning listening in a way that causes you to reflect and to think about something but they were as good as not even having heard anything. And then Maqsood, some and COBOL well, Java also means that to listen actually means to agree. You know, like I'm
saying when I say to you, hey, listen to me. Don't go there. I'm kind of saying obey me and don't go there. Do what I'm telling you. So if we only did what we were told, that smell also means if we only did what we were like, you know how you say to your parents, I wish I listened to you. You did listen to them, but you didn't obey them.
Right? And the parents don't say you never obey me this and you never want.
You never listen to me. It's the same in the Arabic language. It's similar to Java. And they'll knock Sudan da Morocco sanaka mahakala subhana wa tada is, the other meaning is that they actually refuse to listen altogether. Not even the words, I don't want to hear it
is one thing to hear it and say, I'm not going to listen to you. Meaning I'm not going to obey you. There's another layer before that. I don't even want to hear a word. That's implied here too. We didn't we weren't interested in hearing a word. Notice also, no smell. Oh naraku comes without enough rule. E and E nazmul. calama. Home nest merula. Home, nest marilena. The NACA Luma kin,
right if we only thought about if we were only listening, thinking about what was said to us, if we were thinking about what we were told, there is no objects. There's just the verbs without objects we heard and we thought, thought about what understood what you know, heard what the idea is. We weren't interested in hearing a thing and we didn't want to think about it.
thing. There were some some things that when you hear and they bring you closer to Allah, it shaytaan trigger goes off in people's head. If they've been listening to us for such a time for a long time, you know what happens? That was what becomes very active. So as soon as they hear something that might bring them closer to Allah, the alarm goes off. I don't want to talk about this
thing I want to talk about this. I think we should change the subject.
There will be people who even if they don't know what I'm is saying, it's just the Arabic Quran being recited? Can we change it please? Can we turn it off, is bothering me, English language is just put something else on, or just don't put anything on.
It'll bother them. That's, you know, as I mentioned, first laduma, English 18, then you mentioned little Hinako below him, and there's a correspondence there too, if they're being shot out in the sky, where they're going to end up
on the earth with their partners are looking at cafaro then they're gonna get active over here. And their activity over here is keeping people from listening and thinking, that's their shaytani ultimate on the activity. And how do they do that, they'll give you things other than what you should be listening to.
They'll fill your ears with other stuff. They'll fill your eyes with other stuff. And they'll fill your ears and eyes only with things that keep you from what thinking
the arkell won't happen. They'll give you they'll keep you engrossed in mindless, mindless things. And you'll just be engross this incredible faculty that we've been given this mind that we've been given, will never be put to use if the ears and the eyes aren't being put to use properly. You know, there's no funjet masala halter, I mean photo, you're gonna go see a show, you're gonna see this, you know, entertainment and you're going to be engrossed in it. That's all you ever do. I'm not against entertainment at all cost. Entertainment is part of life. But for some people that is their life.
You know, all they're addicted and they actually it hurts them to think I don't like I don't like when I'm listening to not listening to music because then I start thinking, it bothers me.
I get really depressed when I'm not listening to music. Why do you get depressed? Because I start thinking about what's gonna happen in my life.
They're supposed to think about what's gonna happen in your life.
I don't want to think about that.
So I just want to drown it out, you know? Subhanallah and then Siobhan says, No, that's not enough.
You're hearing I've already polluted you're seeing I've already polluted let's just go for your mind altogether. Why don't you do drugs? Why don't you do alcohol? Let's just take out your mind. So even if you heard and saw it wouldn't work anyway.

So they say if we only listened and we thought Marco novios hubby said we would not have been from the people have a say have said it has already been mentioned that pit that burns and this insane this they've actually been called they've been connected with Chelsea

By the way notice, no goodness no owner que la Coronavirus harborside Java boo Yachty, Milan
You know, no *, not local lamb in Florida.
The alarm comes with it. So in English, you say, had I done this, I would have done that. And the wood part in Arabic comes with the lamb. So the expectation here is lahmacun feels heavy sorry. Actually. Now they're at a point where they're saying we were so far gone. Even if we had heard, and we had thought about it, we probably still wouldn't have acted on it. They're not as sure that that would have been enough. If they were completely sure that that would have been enough for them. They would have added another layer of emphasis to their statement and said lahmacun they removed it and actually,
there will be have deeper problems too. In other words, we're learning listening and thinking are steps. They're not the final because you have to listen, you have to think and then you have to act.
Right? There's a third step. There are people who listen and think and understand very well and still don't act.
If this was the final and this would be the one to save you for sure. And that's it. That's all that's needed. Then the emphasis would have been justified Lamarck.
nefarious habit, sorry. But there's something to be left something to be desired here. And so Mako nefarious habits say, we would not have been from the people of a site for I don't know if we'll be them be him. So they acknowledge they recognize the word. And I thought I thought is to acknowledge to admit, right to accept, it comes from the word of mouth, which is to recognize a tail off is lasme, in a sense that it says to recognize in oneself, the recognizing oneself and to admit before oneself about oneself, be them be him, they recognize their own them, them in the Arabic language comes from the word Deneb. It's one of the many words in Arabic for a sin. Okay, so say Arjuna job,
there's lots of words in Arabic for sin. And then that means the tail of an animal.
And then in Arabic literature is used for that, which is embarrassing,
a source of embarrassment. So they'll admit to what they find embarrassing.
This is actually when you do something, you know, you could have done better.
You know, there's mistakes you make that are beyond your capability, you fail a test, and you took calculus, you know,
tool one, and you don't even know basic algebra, and you ended up in a row in the wrong class and you failed it. That's not a dumb because far beyond the expectations you have, right. But you're you're a calculus student, and you fail the third grade math test. And that's, that's embarrassing, your failures, embarrassing now. Okay, so this is the idea of a dump.
And the use of it here is that is suggesting people should have expected more from themselves.
And it's an embarrassment to themselves before it is to anybody else, for a total forbidden by him.
Now, alpha oola for C Hutton. What that means is this find the beginning is actually an elaborate in doing so in saying that if you only thought and if you only listen, and we only thought we wouldn't have ended up among the company of the people that are being set ablaze, in insane, so they have admitted their sin. So fat off will be done by him is like thus they have admitted their sin. Thus they've admitted their sin. Notice the word Zumba is also singular. It's not fat off will be the newbie him. They admitted their sins. It's actually they just admitted their sin. It's alleged it's their stubbornness. One thing, just a refusal to listen.
Just that not even taking that that was it was the gateway crime that led to all the other crimes. So to say they admit to that they admit where they were, you know what they were holding inside of them. And by the way, even if you admit now, I mean, we should admit our sins now to Allah. What's the point of admitting it as you being pushed in hell?
There's no benefit at that either. I'd like
to know who La ilaha illAllah de Amana to be Hebrew Israel.
Well, a nominal Muslim in
said as soon as the drowning the drowning waters became eminent and he knew it's done. He said, I believe in that there is no one to worship except the one that the Israelites worship.
He couldn't even say Allah.
Even then the guys, just wow. And I'm Muslim. I'm among the Muslims.

when some of them the signs of a law manifest themselves like hell manifests itself then any person coming to the faith. What's the point of it now that if they didn't believe already, okay, so but fee money, hell if they didn't earn any good from their faith from before. And by the way, that is an allusion to the fact that faith isn't enough you have to earn beyond your faith, you know, for sure. As Harvey sorry. So so I'll translate that in a sec. So below is for the people of Saudi Arabia Who are the people of Saudi is the shell teen and the disbelievers a lot of monitors on them in home. A circle in Harker shape, so actually means have something to fall apart to deteriorate. So
Sarika socket in Osaka de who and other the earth was blistered by the wind for you to get blistered on to be attacked. makonnen sahak means a faraway, Uncharted kind of place. circondato us haka Hola, of Idaho. Here any burden to stay far away from me. So the two meanings that come inside circle are actually distance. That's why a circle is also used for anathema at all.
Palm Trees also called a circle, and nulato Tommy Lee birdie Allah and because it's very the top of it is very far from the earth. That's why it's called a snook. So something that you want to keep away. This is actually a repetition of something that's already been alluded to in the word hockey and hockey and was Get away from me. And so Khan is actually furthering that idea. May they be cast off put far away. That's one meaning of the word sock.
The other meaning is actually a curse
A painful curse, you can even say, Okay,
we'll start with Sonia to let the sub Avraham God do the de Luna de la humbler, by the way, subconscious habits aid is a form of dawn, it's Kilimanjaro, he could have been shot, he means may they be cursed, may they be cast off. So away with the people of the flame, just get them out of here kind of thing.
If you look at this passage, up until now, this is by the way, it concludes the part about the disbelievers and their their lack of faith and where they're going to end up, you'll notice two things. You'll notice they're full of regret.
And you'll notice after they're full of regret, they're being cast off faraway. You notice that right.
And those two terms have come in the first passage and in the reverse order.
Those two terms were young column, la kalba, Saru hace and wahiawa Hussey. And now we started with hustler.
And we ended with no hassle, because this is so common. And that concludes their discussion about them. And Allah flips the equation and says, In the end, I have shown
no doubt about it, those who are fearful of their master in the unseen, the the below hype can be metallic Berrabah home, and could be metallic metallic Will Ferrell what that means in simple languages, those who fear their master who they couldn't even see the master who was in the unseen, meaning align the unseen. Why is that important to mention, it's important to mention because these people only believe if they see, and jahannam was finally seen. And then they were ready to believe. But Allah says there are people who will believe who will be afraid not of jahannam who are they're afraid of the rub. And that's why the word Kashi is important here, they understood Eliza King, they
didn't want to be given demonstrations of how powerful he is. They were afraid of him as it was without having seen him. The other meaning of Bill hype, however, interestingly, is your Shona bill. Hey,
Shona bill, havilah bomb, they were fearful of their master when nobody could see them.
They were fearful of a law when nobody could see them. And this is in in our sense, it's the idea of not being hypocrites, right? Not being righteous in the public eye and being being completely oblivious of Allah in private. But in the original context of the surah Don't forget there are people in Makkah who have believed and are scared to say it.
There are people in Makkah, who who do fear Allah, but they are afraid of what Toka pharma do to them.
And these people remained as such, almost until the end of the Ceylon a lot of them. Lola Jana minuit. Moving on one is Amina lamotta, Allah moon
lander on the moon, in Makkah Arabia, even then a lie saying there are men and women that completely absolutely believe that you have never known.
You've never known Yanni or shannara Bohol. Believe
you know, so hardwired in us, the people don't know them.
People have no idea who they are. And this is actually a very beautiful statement from a lot to those people in addition, so there's multiple things being said here. One, we believe in a god that's unseen, to look, if you're among the people that have come to faith, you realize this, you've internalized this, but you haven't verbalized it. That's okay. You're still okay. And they're worried does our faith even count? We didn't come out and say, we didn't come out in public. You know, we didn't accept Islam in front of like 30 people. And we didn't join the band that's being tortured right now. We just were praying quietly, secretly, we haven't even told the Prophet
too scared. Even they have been acknowledged in the law says lahoma
they'll have forgiveness. No Africa, it's such a beautiful beautiful and it'll help you understand and understand what's coming in the next IOP as well. Well, when cubbies and they'll have massive reward, the word Kavita is no accident is occurring for the second time and until mila fievel Alan Kabir can be urine huge confusion. And now you'll have huge compensation is actually contrasting the Korans unique style of contrast, and please pay attention to this part. Now. Your break is coming soon. This is really interesting. In the Quran, Allah does not compare opposites.
All the time,
you would say if I give you a mathematical equation, think about this, as should be compared with B, and C should be compared with D. Okay, so a, the opposite of a would be B, and the opposite of C should be D. What Allah will do in the Quran is he'll compare a with D
will compare a instead of comparing it with B, he'll compare it with D. And in doing so what he's saying is, he's comparing both A and C on one side, and B and D on the other side, so he actually makes two comparisons at one time.
By good cross comparison, if you just put a like people agenda people have not that's a envy. Right? But if he says, people agenda, people who don't pray,
if he did that, that's like an end kind of comparison. Because you should expect people who pray versus people who don't pray, but he'll do a cross comparison and doing so what has he done? People have genda are people who pray. People have jahannam or people who don't pray. So he gives you additional conclusions in doing so. Now look at the contrast. There's blood on cubbies and there's agilon Kabir
that's the comparison that's been made. But it's not a direct comparison. It's a cross comparison, isn't it? On the one hand, big confusion compared with what big reward people had remained and would like to remain in massive can By the way, why would somebody be massively confused? The only way to remove your confusion is to listen to someone explain it. Think about it, and your confusion is gone. But unfortunately, no Coronavirus, Morrow, or nakivo. The only way to get rid of your confusion you didn't want it exercise. Now, people who refuse to think to listen and think are going to end up in big confusion. People have been confusion are as good as hellbound.
On the contrast, people who listen and think
and they are as good as having earned Allah's forgiveness, they're actually not just forgiveness, huge reward. Listening and thinking gives you huge reward. By the way corresponding to this idea. If you think about what the prophet SAW Selim says about the Quran reciting the Quran listening to the Quran, reflecting on the Quran, the rewards of reflecting the rewards of thinking better than the one who does Qian
and the rewards of reciting and hearing the Word of Allah for every letter how much
10 are during Kabir, like the summer of this word is going to be you know. So that's the this is the beautiful correlation that's been made. And by the way, the other interesting contrast is these are people that are afraid of their master in hiding. They're in hiding, and the other are defiant of their master in public.
and a lack of knowledge is both and he flips the equation on judgment day. The homework philodendron can be, by the way, notice the contrast here, on the one hand is hasil hasil. I told you means exposed, unarmed mellifera actually means covering.
And from it comes the word Milford, which is literally a helmet to shield you from from attack, and the hype on the one hand, and the high shunga humble hype and by the way, people of Hellfire are gonna end up in a place that's
the Hazara number, the secret Guardian, the keepers. And then the contrast, I gave you a German Kabira and palanka B. So
fillerina shannara homebuilt
una hakala de la him or Morocco but Ahuja home facility will allow and this is the idea that they actually they recognize that laws rights over them when they can be seen and when they can't be seen.
interesting comment about this that I was thinking about, for a couple of days actually, in this surah, Allah azza wa jal seems to indicate that
listening and thinking would have saved people, which is an intellectual process, if you think about it, listening to something and thinking about it isn't is up here. But by contrast, yuck shown out of the home is not a it's not a process of here.
It's a process down here, right? So it's actually the content of the equation is completed. That you know, you can't just have the intellectual the intellectual should reach you lead you to some emotional conclusions. And this is really powerful guys, listen to this. For a lot of people, their emotions dictate their thoughts.
I'll say that again. For a lot of people, their emotions dictate their thoughts, their emotions are I don't want to change I am comfortable. I like the way things are. And I don't want to think about something because it's going to make me uncomfortable. their emotions are dictating their thoughts in this surah It seems that the thought came first and the thought now dictated their fear their emotions. If your thoughts are clear, then your emotions will be set in the right direction. Emotions are like this.
powerful weapon you can point it in any direction.
Clear thought gives your emotions the proper direction who should you fear? Who should you love? These are emotions aren't they? Who should you hate? What should you aspire to? What should you not aspire to? What should you find beautiful? What should you find disgusting these are emotions, but our emotions will not be guided until our thoughts are. So the summer and alcohol is given this precedence and as a result, the actual narrow bound as a result, they fear their master the emotional maturity came, right so panela and in it perhaps there's an there's an indication for us that our spiritual growth should not is only assumed to be a spiritual activity. We need to grow
ourselves in our thought in our in our pondering in our reflection, and it will actually enhance us emotionally with a lot to our harshly overloaded with increased when we have to double This is why this this is when the art of alarm makes sense. In nama yaksha la harmony, anybody allow? Why is that? Why is Obama and Russia together? It should be bad. You know, I'll meclizine somebody who will cry all night, know that Allah have Russia why the more you learn, the more you grow intellectually, it actually your emotions start maturing, you know, your spiritual growth and your intellectual growth are inseparable from each other. There is no tough out between them.
There's no gap between them.
And so I disagree with a lot of them have assumed respectfully in the interpretation of the next idea, the next to IOD because, and we're close to the end of this section in Sharla. Really amazing stuff. I gotta show you by the end of
this, Allah says what a suitable COVID Akuma? Which How would he keep what you say secret? Or make it public? Keep what you say secret or make it public, make it known.
expose it even in a Hollywood movie that is pseudo he certainly is fully fully knowledgeable, fully aware of the nature of what lies in the chest without to salute the nature of the chest, the kinds of people now in this, Allah says whether you make something public or not, he knows what's going on were inside your chest.
So some of us You don't say I'll Calum, you're in a Nazi Germany and movement in humble cafe. This speech refers back to the book because the disbelievers we started with and then the believers and now this is kind of concluding it's everybody. Altogether, whether you hide what you say or or expose what you say, it doesn't matter. Allah knows what's in your hearts. Okay? I actually personally inclined more towards the idea here, that Allah azza wa jal is giving this as a consolation to the believers in secret.
The previous I was in the national home bill hype, right, they secretly worship Allah, where they can't be seen. They also have hope of forgiveness. And don't worry, even if you haven't been able to say it out in public, and you've kept it a secret. It's okay, he knows what's in your hearts. So it's a consolation to the believer that their faith is valuable, even if it's kept a secret. Okay, once you're rucola calm, and of course it has general value. But in that particular context, I'd say the first thought process should go towards what's most proximate in the closest proximity. Allahu tada on him, so it's a continuation of the idea of Okay, and then the next I also kind of ties
everything together. And I have a moment halaqa wha Hoo allottee. Al Habib, does he not know who he created?
You think he just knows you from the outside, not the inside. Allah azza wa jal is the one with full view. And to him what you have on the outside and what you have on the inside. You know, you don't have to show everybody what you have on the inside. Because everybody can see you only from the from from an external view, but Allah has the full view. And he is a Latif. He is the subtle, and this word also gives kind of gives it away that Allah is not talking to everybody because he's pretty harsh with the kofod in this passage, and Latif is not used for people you're being nice to you're not unless you're being nice to someone looks for is actually has has a rift in it has lean in it
has muhabbat in it has softness, courtesy care, these are part of the meanings of lot. Okay. And subtlety, of course. So an eye Allah woman halaqa has been interpreted two ways. There's a dominant, more common interpretation and the other one, I'll share both of them with you and I at the moment halaqa can be translated.
Doesn't the one who created no
doesn't the one or someone who created wouldn't he know? Meaning doesn't allow know, himself? He's the door or the man holla chasm of role, meaning Doesn't he know who he created?
So it's either doesn't know or doesn't know who he created? Okay, so Doesn't he know who he is? And it seems the latter is more common in the Quran. Right? Doesn't he know who he created? So Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, wa who allottee for me like, if so what if people don't know? It's like Allah saying, so what do people know? I know.
That should be enough for you. And so Latif Allah Allah Maha via more. Latif, one of the meanings is the one who knows the most secret issues, while mo de Beulah Javi Rifkin Wakeman, the one who plans all of them out with a lot of care and delicacy, and a lot of wisdom, Allah hubiera la mala de la vida de la via Latina, Neha para nos Babu, home Ababa home garden be hulusi hopefully Delica was Taka Hagen was mean Madison haba. Habib means what you tell people is a hub.
If somebody gets to find out, something happened, that Sahaba hubiera, someone who knows everything that was exchanged between everyone and every event that occurred, he has the full news as it was transmitted by everyone. And as he is himself direct witness, this is all hubiera. So they're highlighting two different things. One is highlighting that Allah will plan things out in a very subtle, delicate way. And he will plan that out based on the idea that he has all the information necessary, he understands the reality fully, look, think about planning, we plan based on assessment, right? And organizational planning, life planning, planning for our children we look at,
okay, what's the situation, one of the things we have to consider, we have to look at factors ABCD. Now let's come up with a plan. Right. And the more carefully you look at the situation, the more refined your plan is going to be right? At that we're on is full marisha. Right. So you have to you have to really plan things out, then you have to really assess the reality before you make a plan. And perhaps, you know, stick shuffle as well, like really understanding the scenario might take a long time. You might even feel like you're not doing anything, because you're trying to understand the reality before you make a plan. Right? Because sometimes you just want to make a plan and go
with it. And then you make a plan, you go with it. And you realize there were some things you didn't consider. And it starts falling apart in your face. The idea of a loving Latif is that he's extremely subtle. And he's taking the smallest minutus details into consideration. And his plan is there to ward any kind of harm. When he's Latif. He's gonna word any kind of harm from your path, in the context of the IR, somebody's hiding faith inside and Allah has not just not only is he suddenly aware of what they have deep inside of themselves, he has a plan for them. And he knows why and why they why they didn't share their faith. He has the full cover. He knows the full context of why they
wouldn't share something, you know. So this is the idea of Al Habib, by the way Hubbard also come from it you get the word hibbeler which is experienced in the Arabic language. So experiential knowledge is different from theoretical knowledge. Right? somebody knows engineering and somebody who's done engineering, there are two different people. You know, a lot when he says you know, the name, Aleem actually highlights knowledge itself. The word kabita highlights knowledge that is actually experiential, as direct engagement hands on you know, that's that's what that's comes from Habib. So Allah is not at a distance getting the news. You know, and that's it. He's actually a
hobby he's very intimately aware, as as experienced with what you're experiencing.
in them is the hippo esmil Latif Manya llamo, Dakar, ecol masala Amelie her mama duck coming, how am I a lot of for who are other civilians if they do not have for his estimate our risk of Will Ferrell will not fill a dark, man unless
you don't say the word Latif except someone who understands the most delicate of the details of something. And who understands to handle things with a lot of softness, because you're dealing with someone fragile, and you want to deal with them very, very carefully as to not break them. And so Allah azza wa jal in his plan sometimes doesn't let someone become Muslim publicly, because that might break them. And they might not, they might not remain with them. So he leaves lets them be in their place. And he'll let them come and you know, create a situation for them later on. You know, so hon Allah. This is Allah, Allah, woman Hala quality for hobby. Now these three are in my personal
opinion, you don't have to accept my opinion, because that's all it is, is an opinion. These three are from those who fear they're mastering the unseen or in secret. They fear their master, they have forgiveness and a great compensation, make your word open or, you know, make it secret or open. He knows what's going on in the chest and doesn't even know who he created. He's incredibly subtle and caring and has full news. All three are actually a reference to the believer. This is the contrast with the passage on the disbeliever. So notice another contrast, the disbeliever the conversation was about what's going to happen in the afterlife.
For the believer the dominant conversations what's going to happen were right now I mean, he was told he has forgiveness, but then the focus was on what what's gonna go on with him here. And that is again, an ad competitor.
Isn't it? So it's as though a lie saying Allah will take care of the believer in this world and in the next and the disbeliever shall pay in this world and in the next
right so that that comparison is alluded to in this way so Pinilla
By the way, last names have lots of lessons in them. For us, the word motif occurs in the Koran seven times, five times associated with hubby. And it teaches us a very powerful lesson on the other side, it's not part of the sutra, but just on the side, something we should note. And that is that we should not be we should deal with things in a delicate way because that's a novela.
And we shouldn't deal with things we won't know how to deal with things delicately unless we have exhaustive information. Sometimes we say things to people and they're not very delicate. And we don't understand the background and we say things that can be very hurtful even though that's not our intent. We lack looked because we lacked cover.
Okay, so when you have more when you know more about a situation, you're able to deal with it and more sensitive way and until you have that information you should just step back I don't know. I don't know so that this these these two names are very powerful in that they teach us the Sunnah of Allah, naughty from hubby who will do the job. This is the last day of this passage whether the jalila como el agua de loulan firm Sufi monarchy, Bihar. He is the one who made the earth for you or furnished or provided the earth for you. As the rule the rule means a Salah, El Museo de la casa de Lima, yourdomain, haben, Masha Allah, he made the earth humbled for you subdued for you, he beat the
earth down for you, as if to say perhaps the planet was once in a place of massive earthquakes and erupting volcanoes. And this earth wouldn't sit still like a wild animal. And Allah beat that wild animal like a like a wild horse and you tame it and was describing that he made the earth into something humbled, because it wasn't always this chill. It was a pretty violent Earth. It was a pretty you could not have survived on that Earth the way it was. And sometimes it has emotional outbursts, the earth and what happens to people you know? And then finally, Allah will say I'll let you go back to what you were
you know, the earth will let you let it although let me call it Azusa till then.
Since Allah Ha, ha ha and absolutely also,
he says I will make Let the earth shake the way it was always meant to shake. It's shaking. It's actually its original state is violent and turbulent. He is the one who calmed it down for you. He's the one who humbled it for you. And by the way, we are made of the earth and yet we're not humble.
So if you are a patch of dirt that doesn't want to be humble, you want me to let the earth act up like you do
it's actually a correlation that's just been made
you were made you were created Doesn't he know who he created by the way created you from the earth and made the earth humble. So why aren't you
and he did that for Lacombe now has a duality meaning he made the earth humble for your benefit. And he made the earth humble to remind you that you should be humble
don't act up you want to get up you want to get up with me. You want to act up I can make the earth act up you know put you in your place a little bit. So the law
will love each other like human evolution as a rule fair will be manner of rule of law. It's actually extremely humbled like the earth isn't just been Miss loon must have been it's been humbled it's been subdued it's been calmed down. It's been and by the way, it's been humiliated because it's trampled on that's that's why it comes from villa.
It's trampled on doesn't
trample on it step it lets you humiliated
that's what it lets you do it has no before Allah when Allah humble something that it has no, you can walk all over it.
Where's your humility, you know, but alas, as he it was made extremely humble, which means it must have been extremely violent.
Like if he just made it regular humble, it wouldn't have been humbled enough.
So he really calm this earth down Subhana Allah Fung Shui, then go ahead and walk.
Because you know when there's an earthquake, you can't walk. You can't walk
around NASA sakara mambi sakara. You'll see people drunk.
People are going to be they'll lose their mind. You know, an earthquake can make someone lose their mind.
They will think judgment has become begun. Their whole life will flash before their eyes. They will they could be thinking about their taxes or their children or the college or the semester or when the earthquake begins. Whether it's 30 seconds or two minutes or whatever. For those few minutes. You have no mind left. Nothing is on your mind. You're not thinking about nothing.
Nothing about lunch. You're not the sandwich that's in your hand. Let me just, nope. Nope, it's gone. You are mindless, you know, hon Allah, go ahead and walk. But he says he manaaki Hi, Rafi Ha, ha ha, from Fiji Ha, ha ha ha. Go into all of his different corners. Actually, the word NACA in Arabic means either la vida, to go off road. And to go far away. Allah says, I made the earth symbol for you go explore the planet.
Go, go wherever you want on the earth. Go take a ticket turn. I don't mean you divert, could ever go see new things. There's a lie exploring, encouraging the believer to go appreciate how humbled the earth has been made by traveling and experiencing the earth.
And as you travel, and see how different parts of the earth has been humbled, you know, notice he says from Shu Fie Menaka bundanon min Allah from shuhada Menaka.
I'll miss you a lot of laughs a lot.
While you walk on the earth in Arabic, you don't walk in the earth. We don't say walk in the land, but it's literally in Arabic on the land. The word fee actually suggests and unifi that inside VR Maki has the harmonica. And young people can go deep into these corners and and dig into the earth and find its resources. And find places that have never been found before and explore and explore and explorer, Allah says, Don't just look at the earth on its surface. There's more going on. There's more. And this is, by the way, going back to the idea of lobbying with robotic, there's more to the earth than you'd expect. It'll give you more, and it'll give you more, it'll give you more,
you know, so go and go and explore it.
But before I go on, I should tell you a literary just, I don't know what else to call it. It's just a gem of Allah's speech in the Quran.
So it talks about walking a lot.
And he talks about strolling, walking, rushing, running, racing, running for your life, desperately just moving as fast as you can for survival. And all of these, if you notice, the words I just used in English are varying degrees of intensity. A stroll is casual, a walk is perhaps more purposeful. Rushing suggests that you have a sense of urgency, but you know,
lightly running lightly running in some sense of urgency, rushing or racing is more intense than that. And then running for your life is like you've never run like that before. But Lewis house used to fill out casually stroll into land.
We relaxed on the on the air, this is actually just a just to take, take it all in. Right? Take it all in. Fung Shui manaakitanga here where pulumi risky for the pursuit of risk which is more What is this by the way? sustenance. So go into its depths of the depths of the earth and eat from it provision. Eat from what it provides you. In other words, now you're going to go for purpose of what work explore off a business opportunity, explore Work Opportunity, go into different places and find what kind of disk you can find. Literally what kind of fruits you can eat and what kind of produce you can eat, but also what kind of job you can get. Calomiris D that's mushy.
Juma time comes he says fissara Willa decorilla.
When it comes to remembering Allah, you should shouldn't just walk don't just stroll, rush, rush a little bit, make make some effort run. Sorry actually means to rush into something and to make effort to get somewhere from sorry wasana ha ha are answers. So it's a little more intense. Then he says Sadhguru illa filati Morocco.
Rush as much as you can rush against each other to get forgiveness.
And then he goes even further sometimes and intensifies. It has Sabu Lama Villa de Moura Beco beat each other to the finish line
to get forgiveness from your master.
So we started with strolling and now and the goal for strolling was just to enjoy the earth. The risk was walk. Juma, which is good for your deen and good for your dunya What is he say? rush, then race, race for what? forgiveness? forgiveness is one left, Run for your life. Fulfill rule ilala
run desperately like nobody's business to Allah.
Like the varying degrees of intensity are determined by what is your goal.
Your goal is casual. The stroll is casual. When you have the ultimate goal you run like nobody's business, and everything in between. So
anyway, well colonial whiskey and eat from its provision. This is actually interestingly
Fill IoT EMA on Elon netherby genre, genre watarrka sub bgmea ui in the ibnr shore says is an indication that we should actually be pursuing all kinds of this out of this earth, we should be looking for provision out of this earth, digging into it for its resources. Allies encouraging the human being to go out there by the way, this is in Makkah, the is revealed. And there's not much of this on the earth in Mecca.
So it's almost as though the oma is it's foreshadowing for the oma that one day, they're going to be on all corners of the earth, and they should be exploring, you know, and they should just go around and see that the the humility, and by the way, wherever they go, they're going to be humble.
Because the earth will always remind them of their humility, and what makes you humble, more humble, than being provided for kulula. risky. You know, the other thing that I really like about this is a less of Dude, what we could never have some dude. No matter what technology we have, what money we have, we can't stop an earthquake. Right? And had it not been. And no matter what we do, we cannot produce rain. We can't produce life on this earth, Allah gave that life. So our risk, our provision, our sustenance on this earth, and the stability that we enjoy on this earth, is entirely done by Allah.
And the conclusion of it is from Schumann Akiva, he'll work with luminosity go into its different crevices, corners, go all over this earth, and eat from its provision, the hard part is already been done by Allah.
The really hard part was calming this earth down and providing all kinds of risk. Honestly, that's, and by the way, it's his risk molesky he meaning risk that he wanted to dedicate to you.
Like he attributed it to himself. Every time you eat an apple, you say, this is just the law.
This is something he dedicated for me. Like it's attributed directly to Allah. It's awesome. And you know, from from a biological point of view, it is Kim Min who, as opposed to be this key. They basically mean who provision that comes from him, as opposed to this key has provision or His provision, and provision that comes from him are roughly the same. But grammatically, once in the law, and then the law is, is inseparable. So your risk should be inseparable from your remembrance of Allah
And we're really here to show, you know, so what I was gonna say is, the hard part's already done by Allah. And he's already taken the job of this for himself. It's not as clear if he
what he's worried about. It'll come.
Just be humble. And it'll come, no furnish Look, he he made the earth sprout after it became humble.
So how much can you blossom after you become humble? You know.
So now beyond that, he says, we're in a new short and what an incredible conclusion to this passage. What is the hidden issue? It's commonly transmitted to him as the return. The problem is, it's not sure and it's that Oda uninstalled birth. There's lots of words in the Arabic language for return. nuship happens to not be one of them.
Not one of them. But for convenience, we say our qadiani
it probably means going back to him a yard if he meant to say go back to him. He would have said go back to him.
He's pretty good at speaking.
He gets speak for himself. We don't have to give him synonyms for what he means. Oh, he said this, but what he means is that I know he knows what he means
LA Alex okay. On the way in my account.
This is what we mean by Kadima to Lucha heel earlier, the word of Allah reign supreme, we shouldn't impose meanings on it, it imposes meanings on us.
You know, it's it, the mentality has to be fixed about our attitude towards the Quran. When you when you start interpreting the Quran for the purpose of convenience, while he said this elsewhere, so probably will just watch it all. If he wanted to watch it all he could have much better than you and me.
He's perfectly capable of that. So let's dig into this word a little bit. Da Luna is the word the root letters noon shin and da da da da da da fetishy in with a shot will be he when something is opened up. And when something is spread out when something you know branches out, national national toolkit out a way to when you when you roll up. When you roll up the scroll of a book that's actually called national
and he is actually to open it up to unroll to unfold. nationality, I'll do a Saba hobby another second meaning the earth experiences not sure when it's pretty
when it blossoms
when a block it's actually got a positive meaning as opposed as opposed to you know, Gemma, Ella Hill Gemma, Ella Hill Harsha.
Michelle is actually spreading out and blossoming. Now keep these two meanings meanings in mind, by the way, they an Arabic figure of speech, speech got bhamashah, who, a person who's taking care of all of his business, everything that's spread out about him, he's put it all together. He's got all the moving parts working, working together, he's put them all together. The expression for that is Obama national, local, you call it
a national re a national arena Tayyaba. A win that spreads is actually a very hot Eva is one of the one of the words for a national and by the way, national also comes in the meaning of life.
So you don't have to show to him as the second life also. But now, combine these meanings and figure out what's being said here, one to open things up and to spread them out.
To for them to blossom, for things to blossom, right. Here
is this passage I was suggesting humbly, Allah knows best. These are, are they talking to the all humanity or the believer?
The believer, go out, spread out in the land get your is. And by the way, all of your spreading out will return back to him anyway, no matter how far you spread, you're going to come back to him anyway. And no matter how much you blossom, the ultimate blossoming in life is going to be when you come back to him. We're in a new show. And in a Hindu, she will also suggest all the spreading out that you do and all the blossoming that you do the credit will keep going back to him.
And he owns
all of it will be attributed back to him. He'll get the credit every time. It's a beautiful statement. It's not just about resurrection. resurrection is one of the most obvious meanings here. But beyond that allows it within the same you're going to come back to me and it's going to be much better.
This is these are just seeds blossoming,
blossoming water passage. Now this was a long passage I want to leave you with what I find the most epic part of this passage how its organized.
Listen carefully. Okay, fresh in your minds. Listen carefully. I need you to keep up with this.
First time Wanaka Xena Sana adonia de masabi Allah How would you Malaysia thing Okay, we opened up this be purified the white
beautified the sky, we beautified the sky. Last I have this passage who I love the Java lokman Aruba, Luna
The sky has been beautified the earth has been humbled. Right? You understand that this is open and close between the skies and I told you this entire solar will be a play between sky and earth Sky News. Sky News. Okay, check it out. The sky is much bigger than the Earth. Yes.
And by the way, I told you also there's an interplay between style and substance.
The sky was described with style z and now the earth wood substance from shufoo manaaki Hauer kulula recipe in its sustenance.
Now the other the next part of it, the sky is way bigger than the earth who tries to roam around in the sky freely.
shouting, are they allowed to roam around freely or do they have restricted movement?
Despite the sky being massive? Jalla hora Amanda Shelton. They can't just go wherever they want their restriction their movement is restricted.
On the contrast, you believe her are on the earth and it's been humbled for you Do you have restricted movement? Quite the contrary Fung Shui monarchy however, Calomiris key
And then Okay, okay. The risk of this world. Give me some examples fruits, water, drinks, milk, honey.
Are these things a preview for what is to come in here? Keep that thought in your mind. These things are a preview of what is to come in. Jan. Okay. Let's go back up to the sky first tile.
The sky has been made Rudra mela Shelton. Things that are cast like stones cast at devils. They are made of fire. Those stones that are cast at them are made of fire. When someone's being hit with fire. What is that a preview of
so that ayah says that they are getting a preview of jahannam and they're going to end up there anyway.
Jana how to jumilla Sheltie will attend Allahumma Java assembly so the preview followed by the full scale. And by the way, the skies will give you a preview of hell and the disbelievers will end up there also. Which is why the next passage is hellfire. So the skies some part of it serves as a preview of Hellfire describe followed by an elaborate description of hellfire. On the flip side of it is the believer who is going to get what from Allah
Join cabbie Jenna lahoma fellow Toma join cabbie, but if you want a preview of Jana, where's the preview agenda from Shui monarchy how Baku Luna risky and the full blossoming will happen back with him but you let him know. Sure.
So the beginning and end of this passage is the sky is in the earth, both serving as a preview. The sky serving in this passage is a preview of hell and the earth serving as a preview of heaven and the preview of the sky followed immediately by what it previews hellfire. And the preview of the earth Jana proceeded right immediately before the description of Jenna so panela that's how this passage just performs is perfect symmetry. Perfect, perfect symmetry. So Pamela, so with that, inshallah Tada. I'll give you your next break. barakallahu li walakum cinematical.
