Guys I want to live in
snow at home the last thought was house the lower and he was a human Voila. So hamdulillah we're here now on just 19
getting a little better inshallah tada so just bear with me hang in there inshallah I appreciate all the the people that have been following
hopefully inshallah Ty just a few days more, I'll be back to my full full self inshallah Tada. So,
for now, though, we're going to try to go through just 19 again, I'll see what I can do in shallow time in terms of time, if I feel like I need to give in 1015 minutes than I will, but we'll do our best until a time to really at least give you guys some overview, some roadmap inshallah to understanding this just one thing as well, by the way is that inshallah once Ramadan is over, what I'd like to do is I'd like to actually rerecord
these previous few just where my voice is not the best so that we can have a full scope inshallah Tada, so that hopefully I can provide that you know, for you guys for the future Ramadan's as well. And even outside of Ramadan, it's always good to have a roadmap of the Quran and to understand the direction of the Quran and to understand, you know, just the how to navigate the different chapters of the Quran and things of that sort. So don't worry, this is just a temporary fix inshallah, just so you can continue to follow along until we have to follow along with your hotma and then afterwards, inshallah, you'll have a full roadmap. So just 19 if you remember the way that we
started, or the way that we ended yesterday.
At the end of surah Noor Allah subhanaw taala tells us who the true believers are. So the end of surah note is very much so like the beginning of social media and so it will not be known. Allah subhana wa tada gives a, you know, gives a full description of how the believers are. And in certain note, Allah subhanaw taala confirms how those believers are the end of sorts of note, certainly known focuses on how Emad manifests itself, faith manifests itself within a person. And then sort of note focuses on how faith manifests itself in society. So when the individual avoids, you know, corruption of wealth avoids, you know, following their desires when an individual controls their
private parts, when an individual is just with their captives. When an individual is humble in their prayers and purifies their tongue, then it stops many of the ills that are mentioned certain wamena, one of the modesty and slander, and ill treatment of the slaves and the captives and so on, so forth. So the idea here is that this is the translation. This is the transition that we find from certain women into certain note. And sort of the node also makes mention of the hypocrites and those who, who show a sense of belief who display a sense of a man when it's beneficial to them in this world. But then as soon as they're put in a situation where being a woman being a believer, is not
beneficial to them in this world, and they quickly retreat from that email. So the next surah is suitable for con and certain for con continues in the same way in terms of theme and tone. But it's a different time of revelation Surah Al Furqan, is actually a mid makansutra. And in fact, the soldiers that were about to go through their mid Mexican soldiers, they're in the middle of the meccan period, the ones that were just finishing are really towards the end of the McKee period. So this is mid makin surahs, where the Prophet spy Salaam is warning the people of rejection. The persecution has become, you know, severe to an extent, but it's not to the extent that it would be
at the end of at the end of Mecca. So one of the things one of the constant themes that we find within mid mechon sutras is that Allah subhanaw taala constantly alludes to the regret of the disbelievers and hypocrites on the Day of Judgment. So Allah subhanaw taala focuses more on that they regret for missing out on the revelation. Towards the end of makin Quran, the theme seems to be that Allah subhanaw taala is warning the people of a punishment for rejecting their prophets and rejecting their messengers and treating them in an inappropriate way.
The mid meccan sodas, the theme, the overwhelming theme of regret, is the regret of the people on the Day of Judgment for having missed out on the message. So I hope you guys understand the difference. And you know, hopefully, if you if you really focus on in fact, if you're coming across the meccan surah. And the focus is on the punishment of a loss of parents are coming upon a people, you can almost bank on the fact that that's a late makansutra. Whereas if the focus of a makansutra is on the regret of the disbelievers on the Day of Judgment, the hypocrites on the Day of Judgment, from missing out on the message you can bank on it being a mid met consumer. So suited for con is
one of the most famous sources in that regard for what it contains have mentioned of that regret.
And realize the hypocrites one of the ways that the hypocrites kept themselves going is by, by by coming together and collectively belittling the message of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam collectively, you know, pledging allegiance to their hypocrisy, basically that they would come together and they say, Hey, what did you think of that multiple last night? What did you think of that? Those words of the prophets lie some and they would mock it and so on so forth. The disbelievers as well they're different from the hypocrites in Medina.
The hypocrites in Medina
you know came when the prophets lie some already established himself in Medina. And in Medina, hypocrisy was in that they would actually claim to be Muslim. But then when they'd get together, they would you know, they would they would deny their Islam and they would wreak havoc within the Muslim community. in Makkah, it's different in Makkah, all of these people knew that Islam was the truth, and they wanted to become Muslim. They wanted to accept guidance. And when they would find an inclination to it, and they'd get together and say, Hey, don't you think the Quran is true? Don't you think the prophets lie some as a prophet, then the leaders, the heads would sway them away from
that inclination towards belief once again. So I want you to realize the difference in Mecca, the regret is that people felt like they were about to become Muslim, they felt an inclination. In some cases, they did accept the Prophet slicin privately. But then, once they got together once Elijah and I was young and Abu lahab, and, and you know, our equipment, having more eight and so on, so forth. Once they got together, then they collectively rejected the message once again. So the regret is that. And so you find in Seurat, in sort of work on
if you go to verse 27, las panatela mentions by only abdulhadi, Mahalia de yaku. Yeah, later need to have tomorrow, so disobedient, Sabina, that the day that the wrongdoer will bite his hands and the imagery is quite powerful because you know when you're nervous usually bite your nails or you bite your fingers here or last parotitis saying imagine a person putting his entire fist in his mouth out of how nervous he is. Yeah, oh yeah, later need to have tomorrow. So this Avila and he will say, I wish I would have taken the path of the messenger I wish I would have been with the messenger sallallahu wasallam. Yeah, we let her eat and eat them attack her food and holla Oh, well, to me, I
wish I had not taken that person. As a friend. I wish I wouldn't have listened to that person. So they start to turn against the heads of the hypocrites and those that were taking them away from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Not called upon Lenny. And a victory burger is a journey. What kind of shape on wooden insanity hula, that that person indeed he led me astray from the poor, and after he had come to me, and shavon is ever a desert or to man in his hour of need. So Pamela, one of the the
one of the the qualities of cyclon is that he deserts you in your time of need. If you remember a few sutras before and sort of Rahim, Allah subhanaw taala was giving us the speech that Satan will give on the day of judgment and shape on turning his back on his followers. So shavon always deserts you in your hour of need. And that's a powerful You know, that's a powerful image for us to have on the Day of Judgment constantly reminding ourselves that shale clean both in the gym sense and in the human sense, our friends, the act of Shelton and our lives by taking us away from the message of a loss of Hannah Montana, on the day of judgment, they will desert us in our hour of need. And that is
the greatest hour of need is the greatest hour that that that that basically the entire world and our entire you know existence revolves around so you realize at that point that the shape can lead you astray and that those that were taking you away from the Koran were indeed sale theme and that you should not have been amongst the hypocrites as well. And so had a lot one of the most painful images that we have here. One of the most painful as well. Carla was Sulu Jambi in Tomita, who has an Anima Judah. The prophets lie Selim who cares so much about his people who is and we've already covered various IR to that regard and certainly SAP we mentioned the profit slice alone crying more
than anything else at the IR where Allah subhana wa tada says phokeethra either didn't know and cuddly omoton be Shaheed which it now be Carla happy lucky shahida How will it be? Oh Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam when we bring a witness upon every oma and we bring a witness upon all of those moments, how will it be for you? Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he mentioned that with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that it made him Christ so much. We mentioned the quality of the Prophet slice Allah as ease when it came out and it somehow he said it can be one meaning that often Rahim he has empathy. He cares about you in this world. And he's also had as an article. He also
cares about your interest in the hereafter as well.
And he's ever Merciful towards the believers and loving and compassionate towards the believers. So this messenger sallallahu wasallam, who is gentle, who's loving, who, who's compassionate, who's empathetic, and who on the day of judgment will intercede on the part of everyone. And
we'll go for finding his alma trying to find the followers of his oma to take them out of a difficult situation. The prophets lie some has one complaint against his people. And that is in the habit that in the colony tough, have you had an animal? I'm sorry, it seems we froze. So the only complaint is my call, my people did not take this call. And seriously, they abandoned the call and they abandon the plan, as handle on these surahs. If you notice, by the way, a lot of them coming up, we'll talk about the court and we'll talk about the blessing of the call and the blessing of divine guidance. here Allah mentions the one complaint of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
against the people on the Day of Judgment. And that is that they did not take the court seriously enough. Notice that the prophets liasons complaint on the day of judgment will not be about personal abuses towards him. We don't find in any of the IR or any of the Hadith, the prophet sighs I'm complaining about how he was treated by the people, but rather how people treated the message that he brought, because the messengers of Allah, Islam lived for that message. And so this is a powerful illustration, the scene of the day of judgment in that regard. And then if you move on to verse 68, I'm sorry, verse 6363, to the end of source and for God is it resembles very much so the beginning
of swithun won't be known, and the end of Sultan nor
elements in the quality of the believers and sort of than what we know. here Allah subhanaw taala mentions the qualities of the servants of the Most Merciful, a bad man or a bad man in London as soon as the homeowner will either half of our home will je Luna carlu Salama, and the servants of the Most Merciful are those who walk upon the earth with ease. And when the ignorant addressed them harshly, they say words of peace, they respond with words of peace. that reason, the reason why they're able to respond with words of peace to the ignorant as they approach them, is because the believers have contentment from the relationship with Allah subhanaw taala but have not been on a
Latina hafizullah to High Sierra one Latina woman, a lovely Mario one. So the reason why they're able to ignore those types of things is because they have peace in their relationship with the loss of Hannah Montana. So here a loss of Allah saying that a bad man the servants have the Most Merciful. They tread the earth lightly. And when they are addressed by the ignorant in harsh ways they respond with words of peace. When levena be tonight, the lobby him soldiered on what piano and those who spend the night before their Lord prostrating and standing, think about this as you're going into the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Those who spend their nights in their sujood and in their,
you know, in their prostration. And in their pm in their standing when levena yaku Luna obenour slip and Ida Johanna inada How can Ivana and those who say Our Lord avert from us the punishment of how, indeed the punishment is ever adhering, if you realize in the previous rule and sort of the North, las panatela encourages the believers to forgive those that slandered them and to forgive those that caused them harm because they want the forgiveness of Allah subhana wa Tada. And here the servants of the Most Merciful the way that they are responding towards insults and harshness is with gentleness and kindness and peace, because they want to receive that same peace and kindness and
gentleness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so they're asking Allah subhanaw taala to protect them from the punishment of the hell in the house at Mr. Carla homopolymer because indeed, Hellfire is an evil abode and a place of evil dwelling, when Latina Eva and Falco lamb use LIFO while I'm here to work, anabaena Valley to kawana and those who when they spend, they are neither extravagance nor are they stubborn, but instead they hold to a middle way between those extremes and sort of the mommy Nautilus parents Allah mentions those who aren't is the county fair even those who uphold their covenant of charity and here are lost contact once again mentions charity when levina lay the rule
of law he ILA and Haha, when I occurred to Luna enough salatu salam Allah Allah will have what is known when my father Lika el kazama. Last point I mentioned is and those who don't invoke another god beside Allah subhana wa Tada, nor do they take the life of someone who's been forgiven. So the ultimate manifestation of wool oppression to another human being is to take his life nor do they commit illegal
acts of of illegal sexual acts. And it sort of didn't let me know in the last panel, I mentioned those who protect their private parts. Last practice as you want
Hola yo yo medupi Amity, we upload fi mohana so Allah mentions the person now Who doesn't take to the covenant that Allah has mentioned. The torment has doubled for him on the Day of Resurrection and he abides there in disgrace. 11 Tambo Amano Amina I'm an unsightly ha la ek you bet de la Jose RTM has an add on can allow for Mahima was pantai says except those who believe and rip who repent and believe and do righteous deeds. So tab they turn back to Allah. They hold themselves to belief I'm gonna wear amin assignee hat and the work good deeds. So they changed the course of their lives as well. So they turn to Allah. They believed and now they turn the course of their lives as well.
They've manifested their belief
in good deeds which have replaced the bad deeds that they used to do a lot. pantai says he switches he exchanges their bad deeds for good deeds. Meaning what when a person takes Shahada when a person repents to a loss of Hannah Montana, and that's the ultimate repentance is to come back to a loss of time that sounds all of their sins that they've committed in the past are turned into good deeds in sha Allah. And on the Day of Judgment, if a person sought forgiveness for the bad deeds that they did, then Allah subhanaw taala will turn those those those bad deeds into good deeds and charlotta Hanna woman tabo I mean a slightly for inner huya tool ally metabo and whoever repents and does
righteous deeds indeed, turns to a law with an accepted repentance. When leadin Elias Hassan Zhu are in the Maru beloved Maru kurama. And those who do not witness falsehood, remember that the greatest falsehood that was mentioned in sort of the Nord which was the falsehood of the slander of it shall be allowed. And when they pass by the evil talk, or undignified speech, they don't get involved, and things which are of no benefit to them and of no use to them. As pantalon Susan wamena last pantalla mentioned that if a person keeps himself safe from a level, they keep themselves safe from this wasteful speech, they won't fall into many of the problems that sort of the norm tells us about one
Latina either look he will be it will be him lamea Haruka la Hassan Manuel omiana and those who when they are reminded of the the proofs and the evidences of their Lord, they don't fall Deaf nor do they fall blind, but rather they keep themselves close to a loss of Hannah Montana. Well, levina coluna
as well as you know, the reality of karate, which I'm not Tofino Mama, and those who say Oh our Lord grant us from amongst our wives and our offspring, the coolness of our eyes, and make us an example for the righteous hula ecozone and warfare to be masaharu. While you lock on a fee her to hear Thomas Adama, those are the ones who will be awarded the gardens for what they patiently endured the rooms in paradise for what they patiently endured, and they will be received there in with with with the greetings of peace, Holly Dena fee
that they will remain there in forever. And the last contact says Hessel nets Mr. Codd normal comma, that it is a beautiful settlement and a beautiful about realize when Allah spoke about Hellfire, that the believers are even making your ad to a loss pantai saying that Hellfire is an evil abode sad Mr. Calderon will comment it's Oh, it's the worst place for a person to abide in. Here a law says he'll put you in the best place to abide in. And so last contest says cool now Yeah, but we'll be Komorebi Lola
aka the Canada button for Sophia corner. lizama say oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my lord only pays attention to you because of your invocation to him. But now you have indeed denied him, so torments will be yours forever. The idea you know this, this, this eye ends off with the idea that our value in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala is in accordance with our Eman with our faith and our supplication how that faith manifests itself in your app. So Allah subhanaw taala pays attention to you and assigns you value when you turn to a loss of habitat and you focus yourself into to Allah subhanho wa Taala. now realize in the previous is so uncertain for panelist panatela mentioned to us
the one complaint of the profits license we're moving into Switzer show right now, the one complaint of the profits by some of the day of judgment that they did not take the Koran seriously enough that they abandoned the Quran. Look at how sort of show how that starts off the next surah last panel in China says policy meme tilaka till Kitab mo bien la la cabeza here on Neff. Second la Economou en las panatela says that these are the verses of the clear book. So the book is clear. The book is beautiful. The book is valuable. The book makes a person great when they turn to that book. And Allah subhanaw taala says land like a bad enough second Allah corner what we need. So this prophets
lie Selim, who we just saw
distressed by the people turning their backs on the arm. Allah subhanaw taala says here it is as if Oh Mohammed slay sell them you would kill yourself with grief because they are not believers. Meaning This is hurting you so much, that you care about them so much that you are literally killing yourself over their salvation and over their success. Somehow Allah so tie that to the previous scene of the Prophet slice and I'm saddened on the Day of Judgment. He cares so much about people believing that the prophet SAW Selim is going to kill himself with grief, and so little calf. Now unlike a bath, you're enough secondary, that
you are so concerned that you would kill yourself over their outcome, what's going to happen with them, what's going to happen with their salvation, and so on, so forth. So Allah subhanaw taala mentions to the prophets I send them that you know, this, this, this mercy that you have in your heart is good, but don't let it kill you. Don't let it take you to a point where your grief is so much that it that it renders you ineffective. And that's a balance that a lot of us have to have to find as empaths people that do care about other people, people that actually, you know, really, really grief for other people were people that don't care about people at all. They're people that
don't find grief in other people's grief, that you care so much about other people, that you really want guidance for people and you want goodness for them in this world as well. But at the same time, you don't allow that wanting good for them to hinder your own pursuit of the mercy of the Most Merciful. So you still keep yourself dedicated and close to Allah subhanaw taala and you don't let yourself go astray, trying to save the world. It's a difficult balance to find and it's almost impossible. Okay, it's almost impossible. Now one of the things about sources so Allah, that is absolutely beautiful. The Prophet slice alum is Aziza and Annie Hema and in turn, right? He's so
concerned about what happens to the people. And he's often Rahim he is very merciful, extremely merciful towards the believers, and sort of to show off the verse what in not up Becca la huella Aziz or Rahim And verily your Lord, He is truly the Almighty and the Most Merciful. This verse is repeated eight times throughout sorts of show Allah Subhana Allah like, Allah is constantly reminding the prophets Isola as we go through and sort of show off the stories of many of the prophets that came before and many prophets who wanted good for their people. But their people turned away and as a result, their people were destroyed. So Allah mentions to the story of Moses on
his own. He mentioned to us Ibrahim alayhis salam and his family, his father and so on so forth. The newer honey Islam has people who the Elisa Rama, his people saw the hottie his Salaam and his people, Lord IE Salaam and his people, sure anybody who's Salaam and his people. So it was pantile mentions all of these different things, right? All of these different profits stories, but a lot reminds the prophets lie some and barely your Lord. He is truly the Almighty and the Most Merciful. He is azeez He's the Almighty and that he doesn't need to show mercy to anyone. But Allah subhanaw taala is the Most Merciful he loves to show mercy. So Allah subhanaw taala will be merciful and no
person can be more merciful than a last penalty so as merciful as the prophets lysozyme is Allah is more merciful to his creation than the prophets lie Selim is to his own. So this constant reminder that Allah subhana wa tada always gives extensive chances for mercy in this world and the next and a loss of Hannah Montana will show mercy. When you know when Allah subhanaw taala sees fits, and Allah subhanho wa Taala who well as ease over him, it is your Lord Well, no Rebecca, your Lord or Mohammed slice Allah. Who is that Aziza Rahim he is truly the Almighty, and he's truly the most merciful. So he will take care of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will take care of the oma of the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the prophets lie Selim has been told not to, not to focus too much on
on what will happen to the people because a loss of habitat will not deal unjustly with anybody the next hoorah and the last hoorah and this just it's just the beginning of this sort of, or the first half of the surah is sort of the nominee, and certain namun mentions, you know, the stories or the stories of Messiah, Islam and slaughter hasaan the Northeast as well.
But the detailed accounts of sorts of nominees are of Devo Danny Sullivan, Suleiman and Isa why because there would answer a man they were granted control or slim and Islam in particular was granted control over so much of the Kingdom of Allah subhanaw taala here in this world.
So Allah mentions
that the call of slay man is and the call of devil
It is an even though they have all of that powerful that power, and they had the jinn and men and they had the birds at their service and so on so forth. Still, some people turned away from Allah subhana wa Tada. And still that was not enough, meaning a loss of Hannah Montana has said guidance, he sent mercy. And Allah subhanaw taala will put the profit slice on them in a position where the profit slice and will be in a state of power at times. And that's not going to necessarily translate into everyone becoming believers. So the prophets lie Sam has been told to maintain a sense of patience, to maintain his dedication, to continue to give the message and to continue to care about
the delivery of that message, to continue to have mercy on the people and love for them guidance but to also understand that Allah loves more mercy and more guidance for anyone than the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and that those who will be guided will be guided, and it's not necessarily about your state, it's about the state of their hearts. So whether you're in a state of Delaware Sulayman or in a state of loyalty to Islam and Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala will guide the leaving hearts to his path. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to have mercy upon us and to put mercy in our hearts towards his creation. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless us with the best of this world and the
next hamdulillah I made it through today so inshallah tada hopefully it's a good sign that my voice will hold up and Salah once my voice is strong enough that I'll try to do two Jews in one day inshallah to Allah so that way we can really be on on on on course inshallah. Zach Hello Faden. Thank you guys for tuning in. Please do share the video with your friends and family and tune in tomorrow inshallah. So that way
