was Menachem de la Sol to Samar Silla de la, he was a happy woman who Allah Subhana Allah, there are some times verses in the Quran that come up, and they offer a reward in a very subtle way. And typically, when we're talking about hypocrisy, and we're talking about the consequences of hypocrisy, we find that there are many verses in the Quran for us to challenge ourselves because sometimes, we might see ourselves as the victim we might see ourselves as the Righteous Party in a dispute we might see ourselves as the truthful party where we might actually be the transgressing party. And so when we come across these verses about Bani Israel, either we come across these verses

00:01:06--> 00:01:53

about the one FFP. And and we come across these verses about different groups of people that transgressed at some point, we have to challenge ourselves. But somehow at the end of certain EDA, when we get into this juice, the second to last verse is such a beautiful verse. It is a response that Allah subhanaw taala gives to reciting his salaam, Jesus peace be upon him, when he is asked on the Day of Judgment, if he ascribed divinity to himself, and a Saudi Saddam Subhanak how perfect Are you? Oh Allah. Of course, I did not do that. I only said what you commanded me to say. You know what's inside of Nia Allah I don't know what's with you. But yeah, Allah, you know, my truthfulness.

00:01:53--> 00:02:38

You know that I did what I was told to do. You know, I only fulfill the mission. And as followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we affirm not just that the Prophet SAW Salem, Bella that the prophets lie, some gave his message, but all of the prophets and the messengers did their job, they gave their message. And Allah subhanaw taala responds, Paul Allah, Allah sent her the young young Pharaoh Sly the penis to the Quran. This is a day in which the truthful will benefit from or profit from their truthfulness. Laham Jana to integrity mentality and how highly Dena fie her avodat All the Allahu Anhu what are the one that he can pose with Alim that they have gardens beneath which

00:02:38--> 00:03:18

rivers flow, Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Allah subhanaw taala. And that is the ultimate success. But I want to focus on that one sentence or the one phrase within this idea that this is the day that the truthful will profit from their truthfulness. Now, I'm not going to ask you all to raise hands, but I can always tell from your head movement. Have you ever felt like you got the short end of a stick in a dispute because you had principles and the other party was not abiding by the same set of principles, you go into a business deal and you are bound by your ethics and you find out that the other person is cheating, and you don't want to cheat as well. So you lost

00:03:18--> 00:03:56

a lot of money. You got into a dispute with a friend and you said, You know what, I'm gonna walk away because I'll just seek it from Allah subhanaw taala I don't want this to be prolonged. You got into something and you did not descend to the way of the person that was hurting you. You didn't hurt them in the same way. You got into an argument you didn't argue in the same way. You loan someone money and they didn't pay you back or they they said I didn't owe you this much. I actually owed you this much. And you say, You know what, fine, whatever, or an opportunity came, you know, we're talking about ACC mashallah, you had an opening and you said, You know what, my conscious is

00:03:56--> 00:04:36

not allowing me to take this, this, take this option, because I don't feel like my Tuckwell allows me to do that. And so you passed up and you said, you know, insha Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will give me something better, a really sweet investment or a business deal and it had a little bit of haram and he said, No, you know, because, as the seller used to say terracotta Innisfil Halal we gave up half of Halal out of fear of haram Subhan Allah we gave up half of what was Halal because of our fear of what was haram. So you've you might have been in that situation, where you felt like your honesty cost you an opportunity in this life or it caused you harm in this life. And what did

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

we usually comfort ourselves with? While making a tequila hire John Lahoma kraja where's the Coleman Hi Tula Tessa, Omega token Allah Allah for Hua Haspel. Whoever is mindful of Allah subhanaw taala Allah will make a way out for them. And Allah subhanaw taala will provide for them in ways that they had never anticipated before and whoever puts their trust in Allah, Allah is sufficient for them. So usually we go to that verse.

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

to comfort ourselves to remind us what, that Allah will provide another opening for us. But this verse is so comprehensive. It's such a comprehensive phrase, that this is the day in which the truthful will benefit from their truthfulness. Every moment that you just let it go, You know what, I'll pass up on it. You know what, I'm not going to descend to that, you know what, it's just a little bit of money. You know what, Allah will provide me another opportunity every single time you pass up on that. Allah subhana wa
