will insert and then
we'll call the Rena. So we are banana rubbish actually suddenly we're silly Emily wagonload octet Emily's any of Coco Lee for hungry lol Salatu was Salam O Allah Rasool Allah, Allah Allah He was happy to join from Ahmedabad. Once again everyone said Mr. Ricardo Today I'd like to share some things with you for getting to know so little qiyamah, the 75th surah of the Quran. This remarkable sutra begins with two oaths. One about Allah swears by the Day of Resurrection, the day of standing and the next he swears by the blameworthy self. There's a lot that can be said about these two things, the guilty self. But one thing I'd like to highlight to you is some incredible bit of
Quranic wisdom, you could even say philosophy is embedded inside of these, that alarm is always teaching us that the guilt that every single human being feels when they do something wrong, when they, when they speak a lie when this lender when they cheat when they steal, you know, when they when they when they hurt someone, etc. When they do these things, and they, they get that feeling of guilt, that's actually not something that's taught, that's not something you can actually just learn in school, you know, or reading a book, you feel it, a child who does something wrong, feels guilty, they feel ashamed, they start crying when they get caught, you know, and they feel bad. And they
can't even explain why this is something a lot put inside the nature of the human being in our learning its purpose, its purpose is actually to serve like an alarm, like like this little this thing inside you that went off, that's telling you this thing you did, you're going to pay for later, there's a time coming where you're going to pay for it, this instinct inside of us to give us a little bit of a, you know, a warning about Judgment Day. That's our guilt. That's the gift of a lot of the human being this guilty conscience. So panela That's why you will kiama and enough salomaa are next to each other in this. You know, in this sequence among the many lessons, I at
least wanted to highlight this one of them to you. The next thing is that human beings are being told that you're not Don't you think that you're just never going to come back and you have no purpose in your creation? Of course you do. That's why you were given something like guilt. There's no purpose for that instinct to be inside of you. If you didn't, weren't given a moral conscience. Then Allah describes in great elaborate detail, the, the epic events of Judgement Day and switches them immediately over to you and about William in Sonoma in Bhima, adamawa how human beings will be thoroughly informed on that day of what they turned into a priority and what things they put on the
backburner. What things did they say they I'll do it later. I'll do it later. I'll do it later. And what things that they take care of every single day? A level actually not just he didn't just say I'll tell you about your deeds, he'll see said I'll tell you Tell you what, your priorities. It's amazing. What an insight into the Quran. You know, and by the way, when people you know, they don't have the right priorities, and they feel guilty. Yeah, I know I should. But
that's why the guilt is in the beginning and then messed up priorities later on. Because these are naturally what people experience. And this law takes this strange break, tells the Prophet aristata salam, don't rush your tongue to memorize the Quran, not to Harlech, Biggie lisanna Caleta jollibee don't move your tongue quickly to memorize the Quran, why the prophets I seldom feels like he has very little time, so much Quran is coming down, how is he going to remember all of it, and the prophets of Salaam is told in our lineage. And
it's our responsibility to make sure it gets gathered and that it gets elaborated further.
When we read it on to you, then just follow what's being recited. Take your time. This is actually a very powerful lesson because the prophet SAW someone is rushing to do good and he's being told Take your time. And then he switches over and says, By the way, speaking of rushing kettlebell to a Boolean algebra, you people love rushing, in other words, you rush to all the bad things, all the wrong things. Look at this prophet who's concerned about rushing into something good, and you people, because because, you know, life is short, he doesn't know how long he has, and he wants to acquire as much as he can and retain it. And yet here you are rushing into one kind of
entertainment, one kind of indulgence, one kind of sin into another into another into another. There's a direct sharp contrast in rushing, you know, that's being made what whatever laughter and you put aside the the afterlife. And then of course, by the end of this surah Allah just does two things. He describes what's going to happen on Judgement Day, but switches over, you don't have to worry about when judgment is gonna come. That may be really far away for you, right? Because I mean, it's not here today or tomorrow, Allah knows. But one thing you have to worry about is when you
Death is coming. So he describes death in some of the most epic language you'll find in the entire Koran was death for this cul de sac.
in Darfur, the circle the sock in Arabic is used when a camel is walking in the desert and it gets exhausted and all the water inside of it is run out, and its legs intertwine. And it falls, like its legs locked into each other and they fall, the moment of death. A person is walking, his legs intertwine. And he tips over. Allah is also describing through this image, a man at his deathbed, who's rubbing his legs together in pain, and nobody can tell why he's doing that and how much pain he's experiencing. Well then.
And he realizes that's the time to say goodbye. That's the party with the fattest circle the sock, you know, so now this at that moment, he realizes what are the realizations a person is going to get at that at that hour is as follows at the power lasala. He didn't realize he didn't accept the truth. And he didn't pray.
One thing you look back and say I didn't do so hon Allah May Allah not make us of those who when that time comes, we look back and say, I didn't pray. Now let me because people have prayer and make this Ramadan, the one that changes our lives for the rest for the better. barakallahu li walakum wa salaamu alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
