useless Lancome atma la, la comme de Nova Come on, they also a la hora Sula, who for the first fills in our Lima for my my beret. We begin by praising Allah subhanaw taala and declaring that none has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him.

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

We ask him to send his peace and blessings upon his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, his family, his companions and those that follow until the day of judgment and we ask Allah to make us amongst them, Allah, Allah, I mean, the brothers and sisters, when we look at the seed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we often find that Allah Subhana Allah Allah chooses to warn the people of grace with stories that are that hit home with them. When he talks to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he uses the stories of prophets. And Allah subhana wa Tada uses frequently. The story of Benny is slightly because it's the OMA that came before our own much the

00:05:39--> 00:06:19

nation that directly preceded the Nation of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and many times Allah subhana wa Tada mentioned people or nations or tribes that were known to the Arabs of that time in particular, and that obviously hits home most because it's something that they can deeply relate to. And one of those stories and I'll mention probably after 20 minutes or so why I'm even referencing the story today. But one of those stories is the people of ads. And the people of ad of course, had a prophet that was sent to them by the name of Hodari his salah, Allah subhanaw taala says in certain cough what's called Alpha ad in Andhra Tonga who will coffee, look at the quality

00:06:19--> 00:07:03

new the Roman benei they he went unhealthy he and caribou Illa Allah in a half or Alikum, either the young and old him, he says to Allah says and men mentioned Oh prophet of Allah mentioned O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the brother of a hand, when he warned his people in the region of an off in the heights, just like the Prophet slicin I'm stood on Safa and called the people to him who the Alayhis Salam who was the brother of ad who was from calls his people who would warns them one last time of the punishment of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and of the fact that they're going to be held accountable. And he's ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, what quality Nudelman venia D human healthy,

00:07:03--> 00:07:43

there were warriors that came before him and after him, prophets that went through the same thing, almost every prophet story is identical in the sense that at some point, the Prophet, you know, is left in a position where he's calling upon his people for the last time and imploring them and saying, look, please, I'm doing this for your sake. And of course, Allah subhanaw taala says that he did not destroy nations, until they became aggressive with their profits, not from your disbelief. But when they started to insult and harm, the profit that was sent to them in the believers. So who is Salam, who was given multiple miracles by Allah subhanaw taala, one of them that he could not be

00:07:43--> 00:08:25

harmed by his people who died he Salam would stand and the people would pounce on him and beat him and it would not affect him at all. Though they were much bigger than him. The people of add were huge in stature and they were very strong. So who daddy is Saddam is calling upon them for the lot for the last time. And he says Allah terrible, do Illallah do not worship except for Allah subhanaw taala in the heart for it. Kumada Yeoman, Arlene, I'm afraid for you I fear for you. The punishment of a terrible date. Now why is Allah subhanaw taala referencing the people of at the closest destroyed nation to Grace was actually the people of ads. They were located they were based

00:08:25--> 00:09:05

according to most historians, and how the remotes in Yemen so they're very familiar to the Arabs, they're very familiar to Quraysh who is Salam is an era prophet like the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, he is one of the original Arabs, one of the Arabs that even precede this man eat it has set up who the other is Salam is also born into a society of idol worship. As we know, the prophets were sent to different society, some of them worshipped Allah subhanaw taala. But in a diluted form, some of them were corrupt in other ways. So it wasn't simply it wasn't their theology, but it was other practices that the prophets were sent to reform. Some of them, you know, diluted pure monotheistic

00:09:05--> 00:09:48

ideology, or diluted pure monotheistic ideology until they diluted themselves into polytheism. So every one had a different situation, but the ad was just like boyish, they worshipped idols and who are you salaam was like the Prophet slice Salam where he was someone that was looked to in society very favorably and positively before he started calling to the Oneness of Allah subhana wa Tada and also as I said, I'm felt a particular affinity to who that I think is sort of one of the drives that had been Abbasali Allah and who says that the profit slice and I'm used to make he used to say, you know, when Allahu Akbar had, may Allah have mercy on us and the brother of ads being heard at his

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

setup. So the Prophet slice and I'm felt an affinity towards him, to a point that it became common for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam to say, Muhammad, Allah wa ad, may Allah have mercy on

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

on us and the brother of RT. Also we find that ad were a deeply prideful people. They were a people that thought they were so strong, and they were so safe from any form of tragedy from any opposing army, that nothing could do anything to them. They used to say, Man, I said, Domina, who's stronger than us, who's more skilled than us? Who's more powerful than us? And we also find that place had a similar arrogance. And we find that ad when when who that is Salam called them. This last time they mocked him. They said follow Ajit tonality peaking at an early Hatena effect Tina be monetary doing that in Quinto, I mean aside the thing. Look, are you going to bother us with this anymore? Are you

00:10:44--> 00:11:28

are you trying to turn us away from our idols? Just go ahead and call the punishment of God upon us go ahead and tell a lot to punish us. Go ahead. Let's see what Allah can do to us. You know, Subhan, Allah, this this type of attitude? Many, many, many times we find that when people you know, get to a point where they're meant to go from a point of being major transgressors, to CHALLENGING GOD HIMSELF, that things turn out not so well for them. Allah Subhana Allah Allah says about for their own when Fidel and Kala and Abu Kamal Allah for alpha hola Ana Khalil, after it went all right when fit our own found the audacity to say I am your lord the Most High, Allah subhanaw taala made an

00:11:28--> 00:12:10

example of him. And we find this on an individual level and we find this on community levels at times when when when people get to that point of arrogance where they start to disregard the divine and even mark Allah subhanaw taala only marking themselves who the salaam responds to them. And he says God in them and in a minute anymore and Allah Obelisco coma or seem to be here Well, I can eat a rock on Coleman Tadge Hello. says look, Allah subhanaw taala is going to decide when the punishment will come when the day of judgment will come. I'm just here to give you guys the warning. Well our kidney Arakan Coleman touch Hello, but I find you to be a people that are playing, you know

00:12:10--> 00:12:36

that are playing ignorance. You know, they're not jehlen Touch alone means they're purposely making themselves ignorant. They're purposely mocking and ignoring everything that's coming to them and they're acting like fools though they're smart enough to be able to receive this message. And then finally, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, For alumna or OHare, one more step could be the LDLT Empire who had a hard

00:12:37--> 00:13:21

Bell who understand agile to be read on fee has there been any? And this is where I want to stop today that the people of ad had become so accustomed to the favours and the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that when they saw the clouds coming towards them, what did they think to themselves not only did they not fear punishment, they said, Oh, hi there Audi loan monthly, Dona? These clouds are going to bring us beneficial rate, we're good, then we don't have to worry about anything. Right? If this is supposedly the punishment, then we're fine. However, out of the monthly donut, our houses are strong, we're strong. You know, we can handle any storm that comes towards us. We can handle any

00:13:21--> 00:14:02

crowd that comes towards us, we can handle any rain that comes towards us. Now not only were they comfortable with this, with this cloud coming towards them, they actually challenged who that is. And I'm like really, this is what this is what is supposed to come to us this is the punishment of Allah Subhana Allah Allah coming to us. And Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, as it started to come towards them better who understand gelatin be returned via Idebenone rather, that is what you were impatient for. That's what you Hastin for meaning what you asked for the punishment to come to you. And instead it's a strong wind that has within it a painful punishment. Now did Allah subhanaw taala

00:14:02--> 00:14:41

punish the people of add like this right away? No, absolutely not. In fact, Allah subhanaw taala tested them first with drought. Now, your G rune so that they could come back to Allah, but they still had arrogance. And that didn't bring them back to Allah subhanaw taala so when they did not respond to that, and instead they said fat T Nabi Mata II do not bring what you've promised to us. The punishment came to them. Now, when you look at these people, Allah subhanaw taala chose to punish them with the most subtle thing right the weakest thing and the inner might say that there's there's something about this that's very that's very important to pay attention to. The people of

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

add built very strong homes, and they were very strong people. They were engineers, they were architects, right. They knew what they were doing. And Allah subhanaw taala chose to send upon them a wind. The wind which we often seek because the wind is usually pleasant, Allah subhanaw taala did not even use

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

stones on them. Allah subhanaw taala did not use anything on them except for wins. Right to show them how weak they actually weren't. That something so gentle can destroy you even though you used to claim that you are aqueous that you were strong people and that you were invincible. Likewise we find with grace, grace took pride in their lineage. And Allah subhanaw taala brought about their humiliation, not at the hands of some, you know, great Roman army that came from outside or some great Persian army, their former slaves came back. Their former slaves defeated them, their own children's of how to love the humiliation of Christ came at the hands of the people that they'd been

00:15:41--> 00:16:20

humiliating for generations. So Allah subhanaw taala shows once again that what you took pride in is actually nothing. It actually does you no good whatsoever. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he understood this. And when the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam used to see things in the weather, you know, he wasn't a superstitious person. So Allah He was, he wasn't someone you know, in fact, the prophets like some, you know, fought against superstitions, because we're all somewhat superstitious in our nature. When the eclipse happens, when the Forsooth happened, the lunar eclipse happened when the Prophet slicin Um, Sunday and the Sahaba you know, they said that

00:16:20--> 00:17:00

this is because Abdullah, the son of the Prophet sly son passed away the prophets I some could have used that to his advantage had he been a false prophet. He would have said to them, you see a lot even eclipse the moon for the sake of my son. What a tragedy because the Sahaba already believed they already inclined towards it, but the province license stands up and says Assam so well, former I attornment A Atilla the sun and the moon are two signs from the signs of Allah subhanaw taala. They don't Eclipse or move for the life or death of anybody. So they actually shut down their superstitions. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a man that when things became unusual

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

outside the prophets lie, some ran to the masjid he ran to the thicket of Allah subhanaw taala either said that,

00:17:06--> 00:17:42

if the wind started to blow a little bit hard, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would rush to the thicket of Allah subhanaw taala he'd rushed to the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala when the sun in the moon eclipse though it's a natural phenomenon the prophets lie Selim refers to the vicar of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. He never stops going to the thicket of Allah subhanaw taala and I shall not be allowed to Anna Anna, she said that whenever the clouds in the wind used to move the prophets lie, Selim was the only one whose face had discomfort on it, meaning what everyone else got happy if any of you have been to the Middle East, and the Gulf in particular, right, you know that when it

00:17:42--> 00:18:18

rains, it's like a party. You know, here we go inside when it rains, there, even if the rain is brown, and whatever it is, people go outside and they really take it all in. Right? So people would become happy and not you know, their crops would have life and so on so forth. These were people that were accustomed to drought, they still are accustomed to drought in that region. So she said that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to look uncomfortable. And she said that one time I asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. I said, when the people see clouds, they become happy. And when they see rain, they become happy. But you will Messenger of Allah, You look nervous,

00:18:18--> 00:18:47

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied and he said, Yeah Isha. Now your mainone and your corner here either. Oh, I Isha. And what is going to grant me security what is going to assure me that there is no tragedy that lies within those clouds. Now Allah promised the prophets lie some that he wouldn't punish the people while he was amongst them. But the prophets lie some says what assures me that there is no tragedy within those clouds. But the urgency because

00:18:49--> 00:19:24

there were people that were punished by the winds, what called the rock on one or the other Ricardo, ha, they're added on monthly donor and there was a group of people being at that saw the clouds coming towards them and said, This is coming to bring us beneficial rate. So the prophets I said that when he would see clouds when he would see rain when he would see natural phenomenons the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say Allah met in the rubrica min, Shari Murphy. So he would he would say, sallallahu alayhi wa salam, O Allah I seek refuge in You from any evil that they may contain. And when it used to rain, the prophet slice and I'm used to say Allah Maha even Nafisa.

00:19:25--> 00:19:48

Oh Allah let it be a beneficial rain let it be a rain that brings benefit to us. The point here dear brothers and sisters, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who receives divine revelation from Allah subhanho wa taala, who is assured of his station in this world and the next never felt safe from the decree in the planet of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

Now, when we think about that concept, usually when we hear about tragedy, or we hear about disaster, we hear about things happening in Syria. We hear about things happening in Pakistan, we hear about things

00:20:00--> 00:20:35

things happening and in, you know, in, in Africa and so on so many different places in the world, you hear about an earthquake, you hear about a tsunami, you hear about something and you hear that countless number of people that have died. And there's this idea that you know what, that's that's just how it works over there. But we're safe from that. We don't have to worry about that. Look at us, we live in America, mashallah we live in the richest country in the world, we are probably collect we are collectively in the top one percentile of the world. Okay, we have very nice houses, you know, they're strong, the infrastructure is different here. We don't have to worry about

00:20:35--> 00:21:11

anything. Right? And then, of course, you know, a little bit of earthquake takes place in Irving. And then all of a sudden, now we're like, Well, what's going on here? What's happening? And you know what the last contact says, On the Day of Judgment when when the day of judgment starts to take place? As the earth starts to shake, what will what will man say nada, call it in Santo Mala. What's wrong with you? Meaning this isn't your nature, we've become dependent on the stability of nature. Which brings us the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala, which brings us amazing things. And we never really have to worry about things going wrong. Now, when you look at the people of ADD, you're

00:21:11--> 00:21:26

talking about people that have been punished. And I want to make something very clear here. The only time you can say that Allah was definitively punishing people or testing the people is when Allah Himself has disclosed that plenty.

00:21:27--> 00:21:57

Meaning what, when you see a tsunami take place in Indonesia, and you say that however the quarter Allah, Allah, Allah was punishing those people because they let Western tourists onto the beach. You sound ridiculous. And you're also assuming a role that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada did not give to you. Allah did not put you in a position to discuss to discuss what Allah subhanaw taala was doing through those and then you see the pictures, Michelle loved the massages that were spared. And you say, see, Allah was punishing the rest of the people.

00:21:58--> 00:22:36

You don't make that call. You don't make that decision. Otherwise, you sound you sound like a fool, just like pat robertson when the Haiti earthquake took place, Pat Robertson, what did he say? He said they made a deal with the devil in the 1700s. So that's why God chose to torture them and punish them. And you know what, as I was listening to that ridiculousness, I was thinking to myself, you know, unfortunately, some Muslims would say that to some Muslims would say something ridiculous like that to, you don't know why Allah subhana wa, tada chooses to send natural disaster to you. It could be a form of punishment, it could be a form of trial, it could be an offer, without a job, it

00:22:36--> 00:23:09

couldn't be a form of elevation of your degrees, you don't know why Allah sent it to you or sent it to someone else. So number one, don't make those judgments upon the great things that happen around the world, you know, the disasters, and so on, so forth, that happened around the world. Instead, you worry about doing your Muslim role, which is helping the people. You don't worry about why Allah did it, you worry about what you should be doing. Secondly, and the reason why I chose this topic today, so hello, this is a very, very special weekend in a bad way. I guess.

00:23:10--> 00:23:20

For us, for those of us that witnessed Hurricane Katrina 10 years ago, I remember Subhanallah, 10 years ago, in New Orleans, you know, doing

00:23:21--> 00:23:58

as the evacuation was issued, the evacuation was ordered. And you know, let me tell you something has anyone who grew up in the Gulf Coast or in Louisiana, you get used to hurricanes, it's usually meant a school vacation, it usually meant a day or two off of work. It usually meant you go to Baton Rouge, you go to you go to Houston, you go somewhere, you enjoy yourself for a day, and then you come back. And you go back to what you were doing. Right. And subhanAllah, 10 years ago, I was standing in JAMA, just like, just like now, and people that are sitting there that really didn't think much of it. The news would keep on saying that. This is the worst hurricane ever. And we're

00:23:58--> 00:24:31

sitting there thinking like, yeah, we've heard that one before, like a week ago. You know, this is this one is going to be the mother of all hurricanes. Okay, sure. Yeah, that's nice. You know, and then after Jim, I had the discussions, where are you going to leave? No, I don't know. If I'm gonna leave, I might just stick it out. You know, I'm sure. I'll just wait till it goes. Some of them, you know, said, Well, are you gonna go to this city or that city? You know, subhanAllah was a very interesting discussion. It was a very interesting safety. And believe it or not, we were as assured as you are sitting here today, that those minor 3.4 and 3.5 earthquakes aren't going to do anything

00:24:31--> 00:24:32

to your house.

00:24:33--> 00:24:59

Now, that feeling of safety is an unhealthy one. Because that's what Allah mentions that a person feels safe from Macola from the decree of Allah subhanaw taala because it doesn't matter how great your infrastructure is. It doesn't matter where you live. Allah subhanaw taala could send an earthquake to Arizona and a wildfire to Dallas, and a hurricane could make its way up here as well.

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

Do you have no clue whatsoever how these things happen? And what Allah subhanaw taala has decided. And it's important for us just like on an individual level that we can be derailed all of a sudden, you know, you get to a point in life where mashallah your job is good, your family is good, and then boom, health issue pops up with you with your children, right, a financial disaster hits you. You're constantly being stopped and hindered by these out all by these hindrances. And Allah subhanaw taala hold you and says, Hold on a second. You're getting too comfortable. You're getting too comfortable. You're feeling too okay. To where you don't feel a sense of urgency. And when you don't feel that

00:25:42--> 00:26:12

sense of urgency, you're not rushing to the thicket of Allah subhanaw taala you're not rushing to the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala And subhanAllah you know, I can tell you and you know, I see mashallah people here that witnessed Hurricane Katrina as well lost homes and so on, so forth. Look, you know, when we were sitting in the massages in Baton Rouge, and the evacuation shelters, and so on, so forth, watching those scenes of people, you know, being drowned in their homes and waiting on the roofs because the news cameras got there before relief aid got there.

00:26:13--> 00:26:18

And the police got there with their guns, before aid workers got there with food.

00:26:19--> 00:27:03

It was an unreal feeling. I personally had the experience of going back to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, the third day Subhanallah the third day, with under FEMA, wearing a FEMA batch using a cure at least Muslims for humanity, and so on so forth. And seeing dead bodies laying around in the city that I was born in, in a city that I grew up in a city that one week ago, I was playing basketball in or whatever it may be, I was having a good time just like everyone else. And Subhan Allah just like that. It looks like a warzone. One of the things that I'll never forget is that there was a relief worker Subhanallah, who was with us that day from Catholic Charities. And the

00:27:03--> 00:27:08

graveyard even flooded up. So you had empty caskets, Pamela.

00:27:09--> 00:27:11

And she said, This looks like a scene from Baghdad.

00:27:12--> 00:27:54

And I thought to myself, that's the problem. It looks like Iraq. It looks like Syria. It looks like Philistine, it looks like Pakistan, it looks like Indonesia. But here, we're safe. All we're going to do is hang out and do our thing and be great Muslims and then wait for a whole blood to tell us to give a little bit of money to these people. And we'll feel great about ourselves. How do you know? How do you know what has assured you have your own fates and have your own safety in your own security? Now there were fools back then as well that said that Allah is punishing New Orleans because of Mardi Gras mashallah, they figured it not only did they say Allah is punishing the city.

00:27:54--> 00:28:34

They said Why Allah is punishing the city, which would explain exactly why the poorest neighborhoods in New Orleans were flooded. And the French Quarter was fair. Subhanallah the logic of people I was hearing people were sending me Juma ultimus. From Imams, the Friday after that, we're saying that see what Allah did to New Orleans, see how Allah punish the people of New Orleans. And I thought to myself, you sound no more educated or Islamic than Pat Robertson. You don't have a clue. Allah chooses to do things that are very, very, very ironic and interesting at times. And you know what, through these different trials and tribulations, Allah brings the good out of people and sometimes a

00:28:34--> 00:29:14

lot exposes the nasty desires that we have inside of ourselves. Some Muslims didn't used to pray before Katrina in New Orleans. But the masjid was more filled after Katrina than it was before. Some people worked in selling haram businesses. And when Katrina destroyed their businesses, some of them went back. And instead of taking it as a sign of Toba, they went and they got beer coolers and stood at the entrance of New Orleans Muslims and held signs that said Budweiser $5 Because there was a premium on beer at that time, and it was Muslims that were selling alcohol as people were driving back into northern selling it to the relief workers after Allah subhanaw taala out to wipe them

00:29:14--> 00:29:31

clean. Some people were saying to us in the massages were saying to the relief workers will lie there was a woman that told me she said go to my house and go check on it and go to this drawer and find this bag because it has my soul in it.

00:29:33--> 00:29:59

It's like what do you mean it has your soul in it? She said Jani the hub. The gold said Allahu Akbar. Your soul is in that back. And you know it's amazing. Subhanallah as I remember leaving the masjid in Baton Rouge going back to New Orleans. No one told me go check on the messages. Everyone said go check on my house. Go check on my business. Go check on this. Go check on that because let's face it, sometimes these things

Suppose the worst of us And subhanAllah even on a community level, unfortunately, we saw what can happen and how how little the, you know, the poor in this country matter that is the birth of Black Lives Matter, isn't it? How little the Ninth Ward meant to this country how little it meant to the government's, you know, where Subhanallah people were killed for trying to get food for trying to get food and drink in the most developed country in the world. I want you to imagine that for a moment. So you know why, when he talks about AD, which is only a few hours away from Mecca, New Orleans is a drive from you. I'm flying there in a few hours, Inshallah, tada, it's a drive from

00:30:38--> 00:31:13

you. And it was all you know, it's a vibrant place. It's a place where people live and have happy lives just like you and have nice big houses just like you but you know what, subhanAllah everything changes in a moment. And you don't know when it's going to happen, and how it would happen. But Allah Subhana Allah, Allah could bring that out of any one of us at any moment. And, and hamdulillah there were Muslims that helped back then, and there were Muslims that rose to the occasion. And there were Muslims that you know, that were out there serving and so on, so forth. But their brothers and sisters, the reason why I bring this up the aspect that I want to deliver here in this

is do not ever feel safe from the plan of Allah subhanaw taala don't ever feel invincible. Don't ever feel like it can't come to you. Don't ever feel like your business won't be destroyed, your home won't be destroyed. Don't ever feel like that 3.5 earthquake might not one day, for some reason, become a seven, or an eight, where the rest of the world is wondering what happened to Irving, Texas. Don't. Don't ever feel like you are invincible, because you live in America. And because disasters usually happen overseas and mashallah we have the infrastructure.

00:31:49--> 00:32:26

That disaster exposed us. It exposed us as individuals that exposed us as a country. In fact, it really did SubhanAllah. And you know, I don't expect any of you to feel the personal attachment to it that I do, because it's my home and it's somewhere that I grew up in, and I saw it with my own two eyes, but at least recognize it was only a few hours away from you. Just like the people of ad we're only a few hours away from correct. And we don't know why Allah Subhana Allah Allah did what he did, and we will not know until the day of judgments, but what we will know is how we would respond if the same thing was to happen to us we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us sincerity and

00:32:26--> 00:32:59

strength to protect us and grant us the best of this dunya and the Aachener We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, not to burden us with a task that is beyond our scope, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, that He grant us Olafur will Afia that He grant us health and prosperity and safety and security in this dunya and in the ark era in this world and in the hereafter and that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah not allow us to be caught by tragedy or death at a time of heedlessness, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make our best moments the last of them, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make our best deeds, the last of them. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah that when death finds us,

00:32:59--> 00:33:28

it finds us in a state in which we are pleasing to Him. That if Allah Subhana Allah Allah decrees death, that when Allah Subhana Allah decrees death upon us, He decrees it at a time when we are in a state of riba when we are in a state of worship and when we are in a state of Toba, and that he does not allow disaster to come to us in our low points in life where we don't have a chance to recover, and we're only left with the remorse and the regret of the hereafter.
