perspective listeners,

00:01:17--> 00:01:22

once again, we gather for the monthly the seed of the holy

00:01:24--> 00:01:33

having started from the last server and moving backwards, we've now reached sort of number 92 sort of delayed

00:01:36--> 00:01:41

this aura is known as sort of delay

00:01:42--> 00:01:47

sort of one lady and sort of one lady they are sure

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

by all three names.

00:01:53--> 00:02:05

And I'm going to read through the Arabic of the surah and give a very simple translation first, and then inshallah we'll delve into its commentary.

00:02:11--> 00:02:12

Well, lately they are shocked

00:02:14--> 00:02:22

by the map by by the Knights when it covers one the hurry that agenda

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

and by the day,

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

when it

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

manifests itself or when it appears,

00:02:32--> 00:02:35

brands will not hold up

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

and by the creation

00:02:43--> 00:02:48

of the female and the male, or by the creation of the male and the female

00:02:49--> 00:02:49

in

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

indeed

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

your

00:02:56--> 00:02:59

efforts is diverse

00:03:01--> 00:03:02

for a moment after.

00:03:06--> 00:03:10

So as for one who gives and who fears

00:03:12--> 00:03:13

what's the bill?

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

And who attests

00:03:18--> 00:03:20

to good to the good

00:03:21--> 00:03:23

for some of your city hall in use well,

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

then we shall ease him into ease.

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

What was stolen?

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

And as for

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

who is miserly

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

and diems himself independence

00:03:40--> 00:03:41

walk up the bubble

00:03:44--> 00:03:52

and who belies the good facility your Cyril who lost? Then we shall ease him into difficulty.

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

Well, now you know who his authority

00:03:59--> 00:04:02

and his wealth will not save him

00:04:04--> 00:04:05

when he falls

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

in marilena Hooda

00:04:09--> 00:04:10

Indeed,

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

it is upon us Palmer's to guide

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

we've never had a hero to one.

00:04:19--> 00:04:21

And indeed as belongs

00:04:22--> 00:04:25

the afterlife and the former life

00:04:26--> 00:04:34

for them to come now on talofa so I've warned you of a fire that flames

00:04:35--> 00:04:42

like a slur her English car will not enter it except the most wretched one

00:04:43--> 00:04:53

alive he got double what the one that he who belies rejects and turns away what's the origin number one

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

and that's one who fears what

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

Most fearing, the most fearing one, will be saved from it. And deema who yet is

00:05:10--> 00:05:11

He who gives his wealth

00:05:12--> 00:05:14

seeking purity

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

woman and it had been in the who never met him.

00:05:24--> 00:05:25

There is not

00:05:26--> 00:05:28

for anyone by him

00:05:29--> 00:05:50

a favor to be repaid lip Devaraj which has not been the earner, except for the seeking of the countenance of his Lord the Most High one a sofa yelled law, and he will be pleased. This is a simple translation of the whole of sort of delayed

00:05:52--> 00:05:55

it's a very early macam Sora

00:05:56--> 00:06:03

revealed in the earliest days of the profits of the law it was Adams Prophethood in muckety muck around

00:06:06--> 00:06:08

it's a very famous or

00:06:09--> 00:06:27

many of us will have probably heard it in Isha sola read by many moms, and we ourselves may have memorized it, frequently recite it. In fact, it's one of those students which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually instructed

00:06:30--> 00:06:35

more other than a giblet of the alarm love to recite. Mr. Mahajan, Mr. Muslim.

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

Both relates that

00:06:43--> 00:06:59

a laborer from Medina, one of the companions, who used to work hard during the day and labor, he returned late at night, and arrived at the machine and joined While the majority of the a lot

00:07:02--> 00:07:05

more of the majority of the alarm line started reciting sorta to the bottom.

00:07:07--> 00:07:10

So he actually turned around and left.

00:07:12--> 00:07:20

Later, rather than the job or the alarm when he met him, he rebuked him and scolded him since he had left solar.

00:07:22--> 00:07:25

So that companion went sort of sort of lump sum of money

00:07:28--> 00:07:49

and complaint that this is what happened is that our messenger of Allah, we are laborers, we work and toil during the day, and by evening we are extremely tired. So I happen to join mild insula, and he started sort of from Bukhara, so I was unable to remain with him.

00:07:51--> 00:07:52

And then he

00:07:54--> 00:08:12

scolded me he, when he complained to him, while the majority of the alarm had very harsh words with him. So he complained to the messenger some of the law or some sort of suit law. Salatu was Salam termed tomorrow the middle of the line and said to him, or Futterman and they are more

00:08:13--> 00:08:16

or more, do you seek to cause trouble?

00:08:21--> 00:08:32

And then he said to him, why don't you read Isha Salah instead of reciting surah, Baqarah, etc, you can have you Why don't you read

00:08:33--> 00:08:45

the base model because Allah or mushrooms will do or will lay the either yaksha so it's one of those suits which profits in the long run, he was actually instructed.

00:08:46--> 00:08:50

So you then are given the job of the alarm to read in Asia solar.

00:08:52--> 00:08:57

So many of us are familiar with this sorta, it's a very early Muslim surah. And the,

00:09:00--> 00:09:04

the main topics of the sword are as follows. Allah

00:09:08--> 00:09:09

makes clear

00:09:10--> 00:09:19

that ultimately, in terms of efforts and endeavor, in terms of work and deeds,

00:09:21--> 00:09:22

in terms of

00:09:24--> 00:09:29

people striving in this world, ultimately There are just two groups of people

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

and subsequently,

00:09:34--> 00:09:37

in the Hereafter, in terms of destiny,

00:09:40--> 00:09:50

and salvation or perdition. Ultimately, there are only two groups of people, those who will attain salvation, and those who want

00:09:52--> 00:09:55

and those who will attain salvation in the hereafter.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

And those whose effort

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

And whose endeavor, words and deeds are commendable in this life.

00:10:06--> 00:10:08

There are three qualities

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

that they possess

00:10:13--> 00:10:15

three things that describe them

00:10:17--> 00:10:24

and converse. Those who will not attain salvation in the Hereafter, but who will actually perish

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

and whose efforts and endeavor

00:10:30--> 00:10:31

in this world is futile

00:10:32--> 00:10:33

and meaningless.

00:10:36--> 00:10:40

Those people are characterized by three qualities to

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

and just as

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

lays a stark contrast between night and day.

00:10:53--> 00:10:55

That is similar

00:10:56--> 00:11:26

contrast and a great distinction between these two groups of people, their characteristics and qualities, their works and deeds, the whole effort and endeavor in this life. And there is an equal contrast between between these two groups in the Hereafter, when it will come to the question of salvation or perdition or damnation. So this is the main theme of the first part of the sore. And then

00:11:27--> 00:11:35

with a continuing description of these people. last panel wa Taala, describes how

00:11:37--> 00:11:45

to describe the qualities and characteristics of both groups in some detail. So let's begin. Well, legally, they have Sharia

00:11:46--> 00:11:50

law says by the night when it conceals

00:11:52--> 00:12:01

one hurry that agenda. And by the day, when it manifests itself when it appears in its full glory in its brightness.

00:12:05--> 00:12:09

And by the creation of man and woman.

00:12:12--> 00:12:17

In these three verses, last panel, Horta, Allah swears by three things.

00:12:20--> 00:12:21

One is

00:12:23--> 00:12:24

the night

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

number two, the day and number three, the creation of

00:12:33--> 00:12:35

man, man and woman.

00:12:37--> 00:12:38

Now, the first two,

00:12:39--> 00:12:43

as is common in many sorts, and as I've explained on numerous occasions,

00:12:45--> 00:12:48

last parama, who was our that introduces

00:12:49--> 00:13:02

and practices an important announcement with a number of oaths, sometimes the swears by himself sometimes by the Creator, sometimes by the creation, by objects of his creation,

00:13:03--> 00:13:05

by some phenomenon,

00:13:06--> 00:13:15

and here again has done the same last whereas by the night, and by the day, I explained two months ago in the field of sort of

00:13:16--> 00:13:27

that, so, as this may seem rather routine, and simplistic swearing by the nines, and by the day, but since I explained on that occasion,

00:13:29--> 00:13:33

the night and the day, that alternation

00:13:34--> 00:13:37

that blending into one another,

00:13:38--> 00:13:41

their beautiful and harmonious cycle

00:13:42--> 00:13:44

and this whole phenomenon

00:13:46--> 00:13:51

of time of nights and day, and all that they contain,

00:13:53--> 00:13:56

these are all part of the signs of the last panel

00:13:58--> 00:14:00

and only the intelligence can appreciate.

00:14:05--> 00:14:16

I went into some detail then so I won't repeat myself, but here again Allah swears by the Knights. In fact, we have a few students all close to each other before this, or Shamsi will

00:14:17--> 00:14:21

by the minds and bytes or sorry by the sun and it's mid morning brightness.

00:14:26--> 00:14:40

Well, primary data and by the moon Money Follows the sun when de la jolla and by the day when it reveals are some well lately they have a shower, and by the nights when it conceals.

00:14:42--> 00:14:55

And in this sort of one lady, the yaksha wanna hurry that agenda by the minds and when it conceals and by the day when it appears, and in the next sort of one hour late either

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

by the mid morning brightness

00:15:00--> 00:15:10

And by the Knights when it settles in its darkness. And these are just three consecutive servants. In many verses throughout the program, Allah has

00:15:11--> 00:15:18

sworn by nights and day, and Allah has spoken of nice and day and their beauty.

00:15:20--> 00:15:36

So by the night when it conceals, and by the day when it appears in its full brightness and glory, the third thing which Allah swears by, is my luck of the Quran. And by the creation of man and woman.

00:15:39--> 00:15:43

This was a great event in itself. And here law

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

swears by the actual creation of man and woman.

00:15:49--> 00:16:09

And the law doesn't just say insert man or HeMan. But law specifies man and woman. And remember, this is a very early surah. One of the earliest sources in fact, according to many narrations, the sort of Lane was a nine surah to be revealed to the Prophet Silla love it.

00:16:10--> 00:16:19

So in the very early days of Makkah, and yet even then, Allah makes a distinct mention of both men and woman.

00:16:20--> 00:16:22

And this is a pattern to be observed throughout the

00:16:24--> 00:16:27

law, his original speaks of men and women individually.

00:16:30--> 00:16:47

Allah has created them individually, Allah sentiment to this world individually. Both men and women have their individual paths and journeys. In this life, and both shall depart individually. And man and woman will be

00:16:48--> 00:16:56

singularly but equally accountable for their deeds before long the day of reckoning.

00:16:57--> 00:16:59

No one shall cover for anyone else.

00:17:02--> 00:17:10

Not even the prophets of Allah had a he was so that was around, we'll be able to cover for their own lives.

00:17:12--> 00:17:20

Each will stand before law, responsible for their own teams, accountable individually.

00:17:23--> 00:17:37

And this is something mentioned throughout the quarter. For both good and bad well lie promises rewards, love promises, rewards for good deeds, not just to men, but to men and women. And both are mentioned quite clearly.

00:17:40--> 00:17:46

In one verse, the last panel hoard data says, Yeah, you're not in a headlock Nah, come in the curry mom,

00:17:47--> 00:17:52

which I'm not sure about our food in the law here at

00:17:53--> 00:17:56

Georgia law says, oh, people.

00:17:57--> 00:17:59

Indeed, we have created you

00:18:00--> 00:18:01

mean Vickery

00:18:02--> 00:18:05

from one man, and one woman.

00:18:08--> 00:18:11

This was something momentous,

00:18:12--> 00:18:21

something important enough to be highlighted again and again. And just as here are my Hanukkah vichara will inform the creation of man and woman.

00:18:22--> 00:18:25

So in that verse, law says, or people,

00:18:26--> 00:18:40

or people we have create, indeed, we have created you from one man, and one woman with Jonathan cheban wakaba. And we have made you into nations and tribes, so that you may come to know one another.

00:18:41--> 00:18:42

You may identify one

00:18:44--> 00:18:48

as well, who's good, who's bad, as well, who's better

00:18:49--> 00:19:11

between man and woman, who's superior between man and woman, between nations and tribes, which gender is superior which gender is inferior, who is better, which tribe is the best? Which nation is better? Allah answers all of these questions.

00:19:12--> 00:19:17

In the next three words, in the next few words, in the academy, in the law of

00:19:19--> 00:19:26

verily the most honored amongst the most noble amongst you by Allah is the one of the most dupois.

00:19:28--> 00:19:31

The most fearing of the most conscious of Allah

00:19:33--> 00:19:38

is only taqwa, which marks a person in the sight of

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

no color, no complexion, no race, no ethnicity, not even gender makes the person better in the sight of the law. What does give a person value in the sight of Allah is the law. That's what dignifies a person that's what makes them Noble. That's what makes them all

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

In the sight of a lion

00:20:05--> 00:20:10

and throughout the last weeks of deeds, this is why there's no real

00:20:12--> 00:20:16

regardless of the spires that has been the park,

00:20:17--> 00:20:43

regardless of the family, each one is individual for their own deeds. The wife is not responsible for the husband and the husband is not responsible for the wife. The husband's piety in many ways, may influence and rub off because of company on the wife and vice versa. But when it comes to accountability and responsibility, each is responsible for their own deeds and misdeeds.

00:20:46--> 00:20:52

The wife of her own Pharaoh was not responsible for her husband's rebellion against the law.

00:20:54--> 00:21:00

And he did not benefit and he will not benefit in the hereafter because of her pirate.

00:21:01--> 00:21:06

the wives of the prophets loot and more aleikum wa salam

00:21:09--> 00:21:10

were not saved.

00:21:11--> 00:21:13

Because their husbands were prophets of Allah.

00:21:19--> 00:21:26

And this was a warning given to the wives of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam in Surah, also, where all of this was mentioned,

00:21:30--> 00:21:31

part of the message was

00:21:32--> 00:21:35

that you are individually responsible.

00:21:37--> 00:21:41

And the fact that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is your husband

00:21:43--> 00:21:45

will not be

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

a means of salvation in itself.

00:21:50--> 00:22:02

That's why I'm sort of doing a lot of dresses and by saying, You're in a certain Nabila, stomacher heading Minh and nessa in a debate on a wives of the prophets, you are quite unlike other women,

00:22:04--> 00:22:21

but not just by virtue of your being the wives of the message, now, but one condition in it, if you adopt, so even for the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam what would have marked them and what gave them

00:22:23--> 00:22:24

a privilege,

00:22:26--> 00:22:29

superiority over other women would have been done.

00:22:32--> 00:22:51

So each individual is responsible and this is why law throughout the program, contrary to the belief that women are not mentioned or referenced in that manner, especially in relation to reward and deeds. Contrary to that, men and women have been mentioned separately on numerous occasions that

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

very clearly and very distinct.

00:22:57--> 00:23:00

In one verse, one young woman Assad had them in the current

00:23:02--> 00:23:03

folder

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

is Ramona de la

00:23:07--> 00:23:08

and whoever

00:23:10--> 00:23:12

performs good deeds

00:23:13--> 00:23:15

of man, all

00:23:16--> 00:23:25

these they show antigen and they should not suffer any injustice, even to the degree of nubby

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

Nikita is a.on a datestamp.

00:23:31--> 00:23:31

Meaning

00:23:32--> 00:23:33

even very little

00:23:36--> 00:23:38

in another verse, Mohammed Assad human the Quran

00:23:42--> 00:23:42

will

00:23:43--> 00:23:45

be asked and Mr. Gamma

00:23:46--> 00:23:49

and whoever does good of man or woman

00:23:51--> 00:23:52

wants to believe

00:23:53--> 00:23:57

that we shall give them a beautiful life

00:23:59--> 00:24:00

and we shall reward them

00:24:02--> 00:24:03

for the best of what they do.

00:24:05--> 00:24:08

There are countless other verses and in fact him sort of

00:24:09--> 00:24:26

again a last panel with the other mentions very clearly in the Muslim in one Muslim one meaning in one minute the one Pani Tina volcon. It was saw the Athena was saw the part or saw the dino savera. Well, how Shana will hash out when was the dean what

00:24:28--> 00:24:34

was it mean? Oh, sorry, man, would have been of whom one half of what the Kadena la Cathedral

00:24:35--> 00:24:43

are at the level of Masato modular mouth in various submitting men and women, Muslim men and women

00:24:44--> 00:24:46

and believing men and believing women

00:24:48--> 00:24:51

and humble and devout men and humble and devout women.

00:24:53--> 00:24:55

And true for men and true for women

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

and patients men and patients.

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

Those men who humble themselves and women who humble themselves

00:25:10--> 00:25:13

and those men who've given charity and those women who are giving charity,

00:25:15--> 00:25:17

and those men who fast and fasting women

00:25:19--> 00:25:26

and those men who guard their chastity and purity and those women who guard their chastity and purity

00:25:27--> 00:25:32

and those men who remember law often and those women who remember Allah often

00:25:33--> 00:25:40

for all of them are de la felittle. agita malema, Allah has prepared for all of

00:25:41--> 00:25:44

forgiveness and an immense reward.

00:25:46--> 00:25:47

And this is repeated throughout the

00:25:49--> 00:26:02

in fact in towards the end of sorbitol as I'm not speaking of reward but for punishment. Allah has the original says the double love Mona Athena one one Africa one machine, one machine, we have a lot more than one woman.

00:26:04--> 00:26:12

So that alarm may punish. This is a continuation of the proceeding vs. La see saw that alarm a punish

00:26:14--> 00:26:21

those men who are hypocrites hypocrites called men and hypocritical women, and pagan men and pagan

00:26:22--> 00:26:34

and alarm a relent to and turn in mercy to believing men and believing women. So throughout the program, there are many instances of men and women

00:26:36--> 00:26:42

being mentioned distinct, distinctly individually with their own responsibilities.

00:26:44--> 00:26:48

And it's been made very clear that each is accountable for his or her.

00:26:50--> 00:26:54

so here also last panel with Anna sees warmer Hanukkah,

00:26:55--> 00:27:03

and by the creation of men and woman, having a swan upon the nights, when it conceals everything and start

00:27:04--> 00:27:23

having swarm by the day, when it manifests itself in its full glory. And having swore upon the momentous event and the phenomenon of the creation of both man and woman. What does the last panel what Allah Allah sees in the Satya?

00:27:25--> 00:27:32

Indeed, your endeavor is diverse, your effort is diverse, which means

00:27:35--> 00:27:40

whilst we as humans live on Earth, we're always doing something.

00:27:41--> 00:27:43

We all have a goal.

00:27:46--> 00:27:46

Not in the

00:27:48--> 00:27:54

not in the religious sense, but individually. We all have a goal. We all have an objective.

00:27:56--> 00:28:04

We have plans, we have goals we have, we have objectives, we have targets that we set for ourselves, we strive we work we make an effort.

00:28:05--> 00:28:06

We endeavor.

00:28:08--> 00:28:10

we attempt to do things.

00:28:12--> 00:28:14

We follow a path and a pattern,

00:28:15--> 00:28:20

a tradition and a routine. We're all going somewhere doing something.

00:28:22--> 00:28:34

We don't just live idly. Everyone is doing something. Everyone is making an effort. And everyone is engaged in some work. We're all expending energy.

00:28:35--> 00:28:37

For every moment of our existence.

00:28:39--> 00:28:40

We're always dealing.

00:28:42--> 00:28:46

And imagine, every individual is unique.

00:28:47--> 00:28:49

And out of the billions that live at one time,

00:28:51--> 00:28:54

every individual with their peculiar

00:28:56--> 00:29:04

mental, physical, emotional, and emotional constitution and makeup. Every individual is engaged in some activity.

00:29:06--> 00:29:12

There are billions of people engaged in billions of activities at any one given time.

00:29:13--> 00:29:14

And each is different.

00:29:17--> 00:29:35

And this is what law refers to in the scenario coalition. Indeed, your efforts is diverse, your endeavor is diverse. But in reality, the verse doesn't speak of billions of activities and efforts and endeavors. You actually narrowed everything down to just to

00:29:37--> 00:29:48

see you in your billions with your billions of activities and efforts and endeavors and work some deeds. All of it boils down to just two things.

00:29:50--> 00:29:51

Good or bad.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

And good or bad, not as you think not as you decide. But as a law declares

00:30:03--> 00:30:11

And that's why one heavy sort of loss related by Muslim law here in basalt lots of the law and equal some dimensions very beautifully.

00:30:12--> 00:30:14

Nancy Yakubu Saba

00:30:15--> 00:30:17

from article her own movie.

00:30:21--> 00:30:21

Each morning,

00:30:24--> 00:30:26

everyone goes out.

00:30:28--> 00:30:40

Although the word is literally morning, it doesn't mean it has to be at that time of the day. But that's the origin of the word, which is people go out in the morning, the figurative translation of the heat will be cold and nasty up to

00:30:42--> 00:30:47

every person, each individual of the people goes out,

00:30:49--> 00:30:56

goes out to do what to do something is always engaged in something. So every individual goes on

00:30:58--> 00:31:01

for about your own nafsa and trades his soul.

00:31:03--> 00:31:05

Every morning when we go out.

00:31:07--> 00:31:10

We either make or break our soul.

00:31:11--> 00:31:13

We trade our soul.

00:31:17--> 00:31:21

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says from article her own work.

00:31:23--> 00:31:26

Every person goes out and trades their soul.

00:31:28--> 00:31:47

So then he will either emancipate and free his soul and give it salvation, or he will cause it ruin and destruction. Simple. Every morning. When we wake up, we begin our day's activities.

00:31:48--> 00:31:51

We are trading our soul.

00:31:54--> 00:31:55

We're engaged in trade.

00:31:56--> 00:31:58

And this isn't the trade of

00:31:59--> 00:32:08

objects or bartering or money or currency, gold or silver or cash and currency. We are engaged in the business of trading ourselves.

00:32:11--> 00:32:15

And in each activity, we either save ourselves or we destroy.

00:32:17--> 00:32:30

These are sort of law, some of the law, some of them so it's simple. Allah subhanho wa Taala narrows everyone's activities in endeavor down to just two things. Lots of love. It does exactly the same.

00:32:31--> 00:32:33

Either salvation or damnation.

00:32:35--> 00:32:45

So lots of animal data continues in the homeless shelter indeed, your efforts as diverse for a moment what the call was that

00:32:47--> 00:32:55

he alone mentions three qualities and characteristics of a person. So ask one who gives?

00:32:58--> 00:32:58

What?

00:32:59--> 00:33:02

And who? guards himself?

00:33:04--> 00:33:04

What's up?

00:33:06--> 00:33:07

And who attests to good?

00:33:10--> 00:33:11

That's the belief.

00:33:12--> 00:33:28

So let's take the third characteristic first, what's the listener and who believes in the good personnel means the good. And the reference here is any man Islam or belief in Allah ultimately means the man

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

who attests to and believes in email.

00:33:34--> 00:33:46

So that's the first characteristic email and being a belief that the man does certain things, that he man leads to certain behaviors.

00:33:48--> 00:33:49

And what are they all three all in?

00:33:50--> 00:33:54

They are not in isolation. He man encourages

00:33:55--> 00:34:03

a person to behave in a certain way, believe in faith, the the person to behave in a certain way.

00:34:06--> 00:34:08

And the other two characteristics that are mentioned.

00:34:09--> 00:34:12

But as a result of a person's faith and belief

00:34:14--> 00:34:14

that

00:34:17--> 00:34:29

I mentioned many times before, duck wire is often translated as fear, the fear of a law. It's a very simple translation, but it's not a comprehensive conclusive translation of the word.

00:34:32--> 00:34:43

Wah means to guard oneself from the pleasure of Allah, by guarding oneself from the disobedience on law, and everything that that phrase contains

00:34:45--> 00:34:46

and that it entails.

00:34:47--> 00:34:58

So he man leads to taqwa. Proper email leads to proper taqwa and proper taqwa leads a person to spending in the way of

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

And interestingly the word the word arms for a Mammon unfuck.

00:35:07--> 00:35:08

That which you spend

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

rather the words of a man

00:35:14--> 00:35:18

as one who gives. So what's the difference between giving and spending?

00:35:21--> 00:35:28

What's the difference between infer an error bar, in fact means to spend in the way of a law.

00:35:29--> 00:35:31

Eric law means to get in the way of law.

00:35:33--> 00:35:35

And both are used in the poor man.

00:35:37--> 00:35:47

Whatever you spend, that is also used. But here specifically, in this very comprehensive and succinct description of

00:35:49--> 00:35:51

good people.

00:35:52--> 00:36:01

A law simply mentions Eamon de qual and giving more spending, giving. So what's the difference between giving and spending,

00:36:03--> 00:36:07

very subtle, but beautiful difference. When a person's spend,

00:36:09--> 00:36:10

you can spend

00:36:12--> 00:36:18

in order to retrieve something you can spend in order to receive something in return.

00:36:19--> 00:36:22

Spending as a form of currency.

00:36:24--> 00:36:28

When a person gives, they give,

00:36:30--> 00:36:32

there is nothing expected in return.

00:36:33--> 00:36:36

They detach themselves totally from that light and

00:36:37--> 00:36:41

they don't spend per se they genuinely give it away.

00:36:42--> 00:36:56

So from an Arab last one who gifts and is conscious of a law and guarding of himself in relations online, was the listener and who attests to the good eye the truth of Islam.

00:36:58--> 00:37:06

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What shall we do for him and reward for some of your civil Julio, we shall ease him into he.

00:37:08--> 00:37:23

And the meaning of ease him into ease, is both in relation to this world, as well as the hereafter the greatest ease the greatest comfort, the greatest relief will be Jim.

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

And that will be his ultimate destiny.

00:37:27--> 00:37:30

But a lot will pave a path for him to jump.

00:37:36--> 00:37:42

And one meaning of we shall ease him into ease is that we shall enable him to do even more

00:37:44--> 00:37:48

good leads to good, which will ultimately lead to gym.

00:37:50--> 00:37:56

And this is a very subtle but again beautiful meaning expanded and a number of verses of the Holy Quran.

00:37:58--> 00:38:01

In that virtue, good deeds, creates a momentum

00:38:03--> 00:38:12

and they push and propel a person along the path of virtue. Each good deed makes a subsequent good deed easier

00:38:14--> 00:38:16

and far more comfortable,

00:38:17--> 00:38:21

far more natural. And so good becomes second nature to purpose

00:38:22--> 00:38:24

that becomes part of their character.

00:38:28--> 00:38:40

But equally so as we will learn in the later verses, when Allah sees for some of your subtle hulan Ursula, we should ease him into difficulty and the greatest discomfort and difficulty, the greatest pain

00:38:41--> 00:38:52

will and anguish will be that of punishment, and perdition in the hereafter. But Allah will also pave a path, a path for that person towards that perdition.

00:38:54--> 00:39:10

And that means that each sin leads to another sin. Each sin creates a momentum for subsequent sins. And each sin makes the next sin easier and more natural and more comfortable. Until sin

00:39:11--> 00:39:12

without

00:39:15--> 00:39:17

disloyalty to Allah,

00:39:18--> 00:39:20

disobedience

00:39:21--> 00:39:25

and transgression. All of these things become second nature to us.

00:39:29--> 00:39:33

When a person sins, this propels him along that path of iniquity and sin.

00:39:36--> 00:39:45

We will discuss that later. But for some of your civil who will lead you saw here Allah says that's the one who gives and who guards himself in relation to Allah

00:39:46--> 00:39:52

and will attest to the good Then what shall we do in rewald, we shall eat him tea.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

And that means we shall enable him to do even more good and there are many verses throughout the Quran. In fact, we're

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

At the beginning after salt and fat they had a lot of Brown who would rather Saison ponder over these beginning verses of salt

00:40:08--> 00:40:13

or the flan mean the radical tabula rasa Buffy, who the limit

00:40:16--> 00:40:18

Islam in this book

00:40:20--> 00:40:22

there is no doubt there in

00:40:24--> 00:40:25

hood a little more

00:40:27--> 00:40:30

a guidance for those who have done

00:40:33--> 00:40:39

so, and these are the very first words of salted Baccarat and the Holy Quran immediately after.

00:40:41--> 00:40:52

So Allah says this book is a guidance for who the whole of mankind No, of course, that's true also, because as mentioned elsewhere, but here,

00:40:53--> 00:40:57

a lot of them say it's a book, which is a means of guidance for the whole of mankind.

00:41:01--> 00:41:10

For the believers, not even for the for the Muslims, not even for the Muslims, for the believers not even just for the believers, who then live in

00:41:12--> 00:41:14

a guidance for the people of taqwa.

00:41:15--> 00:41:18

So the people of taqwa are normally that he leads.

00:41:19--> 00:41:23

So we're talking about a very restricted number of people.

00:41:25--> 00:41:43

So why does the law say at the very beginning of the call, and that this book is a means of guidance, not for the whole of mankind not for those who submit not for those who pronounce the articles of faith, not for the believers was sinful, not just for the Muslims or the mock meaning.

00:41:44--> 00:41:49

But specifically, for that elite group of what have been those who have

00:41:52--> 00:41:56

very simple Of course, the Quran is a means of guidance for the whole of mankind.

00:41:57--> 00:41:58

But

00:41:59--> 00:42:02

the more a person is guided into belief,

00:42:04--> 00:42:17

the more backward a person has, the more conscious a person becomes of a law. The greater the taqwa a person acquires, the greater the secrets and the wisdoms of the holy core and that a lot opens to

00:42:21--> 00:42:23

a person of taqwa.

00:42:24--> 00:42:35

For him or her, the params guidance, and hedaya and illumination are all on a totally different level to another purse.

00:42:37--> 00:42:38

So just reflect on those words.

00:42:40--> 00:42:48

This is what I mean by the more good we do. The more doors that allow opens for us, the more good with

00:42:50--> 00:42:53

the greater virtues Allah enables us to do.

00:42:54--> 00:42:56

The more virtue we engage in,

00:42:57--> 00:43:32

the more good deeds we perform, the more good works we do. A lot of horror data pushes and propels us along that path of virtue of righteousness, of good of piety of taqwa, of ina, and of actually discovering the wisdoms and the truth of the last panel with data in the US find another verse with the law we are under more common law and feel law be conscious of Allah, God yourselves in relation to Allah will your anger more common law and the law will teach

00:43:35--> 00:43:48

in another verse and salt, Mohammed will Edina todo de todo taqwa and as for those who have found guidance, will Lavina Tato as for those who have found guidance, that

00:43:50--> 00:43:54

a lot increases them in guidance and grants than that.

00:43:55--> 00:43:57

So they have already found guidance.

00:43:58--> 00:44:05

So what more guidance there's a lot give them a lot gives them another level of hidayah and guidance, and a lot gives them

00:44:08--> 00:44:18

in other words, what Malala had in that in that animal in our soroptimist And verily, Allah is surely the one to guide those who have believed,

00:44:20--> 00:44:28

guide them to what in our surroundings to been to a straight path. But surely they are already on the straight path

00:44:29--> 00:44:32

by virtue of the fact that they have believed

00:44:33--> 00:44:52

by virtue of the fact that they are believers, they are already on a straight path. So what's the meaning of what in the law heard in living in an animal you know, Spartan must have been? Verily Allah is the one who surely guides those who have believed to a straight path. The path that Allah guides them, is

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

a path narrower and straighter and more virtuous.

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

than even the normal straight path.

00:45:03--> 00:45:19

Each Hidayat leads to greater hedaya. Each virtue leads to greater virtues, each good deed leads to greater good things. And that's the meaning of personally acetylcholine you saw, we shall ease him until he slides.

00:45:21--> 00:45:24

Continuing from where we left off before solar,

00:45:26--> 00:45:28

last panel data sees

00:45:29--> 00:45:38

phenomena are part of the cause of the problem. And you're still holding yourself as the one who gives the gods himself

00:45:41--> 00:45:45

and attests to the good, then we shall ease him to eat.

00:45:47--> 00:45:50

And the ultimate ease and comfort is gentlemen,

00:45:51--> 00:45:54

for Allah paves the path to Jim for that person,

00:45:55--> 00:45:58

making it very easy for him or her.

00:46:00--> 00:46:04

to tread that path, and to make their way to

00:46:05--> 00:46:23

each good deeds, opens doors for other good deeds, each virtue leads to another virtue. This is why we should never become despondent. We should never give up hope, even in ourselves. Sometimes we feel or we fear that we are evil, we are terrible.

00:46:24--> 00:46:25

We are no good.

00:46:29--> 00:46:38

As a result, we feel that any good we do is few tile meaningless, fruitless, you won't achieve anything.

00:46:40--> 00:46:41

And what's

00:46:44--> 00:46:48

one drop of a good deed in an ocean of sin.

00:46:51--> 00:46:52

We should never lose hope.

00:46:55--> 00:47:04

Not to how many times before we should rise and continue as long as we do it sincerely. The truth is, as they say, if there's a will there's a way

00:47:05--> 00:47:09

if a person is sincere, Allah subhanho wa Taala guides

00:47:11--> 00:47:13

and creates opportunities for that purse.

00:47:23--> 00:47:24

Never give up hope.

00:47:28--> 00:47:31

And even one good deed can lead a person to another.

00:47:36--> 00:47:43

A lot of them says one member was stubborn, and asked for one who is miserly

00:47:45--> 00:47:48

and Dean's himself independent needless of a law.

00:47:50--> 00:47:51

What can be less

00:47:53--> 00:48:02

and who rejects and belies the good again the good is Islam and he man and faith in Allah and the Quran.

00:48:05--> 00:48:06

This is the other purse.

00:48:08--> 00:48:10

here Allah mentions two people.

00:48:12--> 00:48:18

They're both very different, as different as night and day by which laughs whereas in the beginning of the sore

00:48:20--> 00:48:22

the contrast that exists between night and day.

00:48:23--> 00:48:30

That is the same distinction and contrast between the first person and the second person.

00:48:31--> 00:48:34

The first person was three qualities believe.

00:48:37--> 00:48:46

Bagua, a connection to Allah, guarding oneself from Allah from his displeasure, and give

00:48:47--> 00:48:50

but the other person is a total opposite.

00:48:52--> 00:48:54

And each verse is

00:48:57--> 00:49:26

the direct opposite of its corresponding verse in the other relating to the other person. For a man an apple is one who gives a what a Mammon button, as for one who is miserly, and the other one what dukkha his relationship with allies such that he is fearful of a law, he is he guards himself or herself, or she guards herself from the displeasure of a law. But here it was, he deems themselves independent and leaves Allah doesn't care.

00:49:28--> 00:49:37

And number three, he was a prisoner. He attests to the good and this one will never be listener. He belies and rejects the good

00:49:39--> 00:49:44

belief, disbelief, the fear of Allah and here

00:49:46--> 00:49:59

deeming oneself independent and needless Allah and given there and here, withholding, being tight fisted and miserly and stingy and all three qualities are

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

Related,

00:50:02--> 00:50:14

one creates the other one gives momentum to the other. When a person believes true Eman gives rise to dakhla. True dakwah makes a person selfless

00:50:15--> 00:50:21

that focuses on Allah and on the other on the Hereafter, not on the dunya. And it's material.

00:50:22--> 00:50:25

And that means their relationship with wealth is such.

00:50:26--> 00:50:31

Truly a person can only have a relationship with wealth, or they can have a relationship with a law

00:50:33--> 00:50:39

that only one, one of the two person can have a relationship with wealth

00:50:41--> 00:50:42

with materialism

00:50:44--> 00:50:44

and with a lust

00:50:48--> 00:50:48

in sort of

00:50:49--> 00:50:56

the law says magic and a lovely little drill him in Albania fijo fear Allah has not made two hearts in the bosom of man.

00:51:01--> 00:51:12

And here so here, what's the contrast between the two? One is McDuffie in his relationship with Allah. And the other one is Mr. Herman in his relationship with a man.

00:51:13--> 00:51:25

But both of them are attached to something one is attached to a lot detached from wealth. That's why he gives wealth away. The other is detached from Allah but attached to wealth. That's why he holds on to.

00:51:31--> 00:51:36

And a believer is not a believer attached to wealth of Allah gives him wealth.

00:51:38--> 00:51:39

The true believer is one

00:51:40--> 00:51:44

for who wealth is something that comes and goes.

00:51:46--> 00:51:47

Wealth comes in the hand.

00:51:49--> 00:51:51

It doesn't enter the heart.

00:51:54--> 00:51:56

So when it goes from the hand,

00:51:58--> 00:51:59

there's no pain in the heart.

00:52:01--> 00:52:05

When it comes down to one one's hands, there's no great joy

00:52:07--> 00:52:14

and bliss in one's heart. Of course, they shook to Allah subhanho wa Taala for his gift.

00:52:15--> 00:52:25

But there's no permanent attachment that comes and goes. That's why for a true what men who has true taqwa giving so easily.

00:52:30--> 00:52:32

Allow me to bless the person with wealth.

00:52:34--> 00:52:37

But that wealth is fine as long as it doesn't enter the heart.

00:52:38--> 00:52:42

And we are strange in that we can have

00:52:44--> 00:52:48

empty hands by heart, but our hearts full of love,

00:52:49--> 00:52:51

full of the love of wealth.

00:52:54--> 00:53:02

And what a believer should be is that whether the hand is full of wealth or not, the heart should be empty of the level of that wealth.

00:53:03--> 00:53:14

When a person is attached to wealth and not attached to Allah, then no matter how much wealth a person has, it's never enough. It's never sufficient. That's why I sort of love some of the love and evil some of them says,

00:53:15--> 00:53:18

Lisa Levin and Guthrie out of wedlock in the levina going on.

00:53:20--> 00:53:24

Wealth is not the excess of goods.

00:53:26--> 00:53:29

Rather, wealth is the wealth of the heart.

00:53:35--> 00:53:44

That's why I saw lots of the law it was a little Sallam sayings of Lamin Aslam What was it called Kapha. Open mera la habima

00:53:45--> 00:53:51

indeed has succeeded that person who submit some book becomes a Muslim,

00:53:52--> 00:54:06

and to whom Allah gives sufficient wealth, and might even wealth, the word Cathars means sufficient provisions. So indeed, has succeeded.

00:54:07--> 00:54:08

He

00:54:11--> 00:54:13

who has submitted and become a Muslim,

00:54:14--> 00:54:25

and Allah has blessed with sufficient provisions, and then walk American law. Other alarm makes them content with what he has given.

00:54:26--> 00:54:37

That's what we should be seeking contentment of the heart. And the contentment of the heart can come with a single simple meal, and a single piece of cloth

00:54:39--> 00:54:41

and even the shelter of leaves.

00:54:42--> 00:54:50

But the lack of contentment will bite a person in their hearts and mind, even if they possess billions.

00:54:51--> 00:54:53

That's why wealth and riches

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

are not excessive possessions, but rather it's a wealth and the richness of

00:55:00--> 00:55:10

The contents of the heart as last in the law and even some sayings. So, these three qualities are related. Each one gives rise to another, each one influences the other.

00:55:12--> 00:55:15

Giving away, backward and the man are all connected.

00:55:16--> 00:55:27

stinginess, miserliness tie festiveness. And detachment from Allah, and deeming oneself needless and independent, online,

00:55:29--> 00:55:33

and rejecting the good and the truth, these are all connected to

00:55:34--> 00:55:36

when a person has

00:55:38--> 00:55:42

these three qualities of projection of the truth and good

00:55:43--> 00:56:00

of detachment from Allah and rent, dealing oneself and regarding oneself, independence needless of Allah. And as a result, withholding money being tight fisted, it's the fact, we see that the ones who give the most are the poorest.

00:56:03--> 00:56:05

And the ones who are the stingiest.

00:56:06--> 00:56:15

And the most miserly and tight fisted are the ones with the most wealth. It's a phenomenon observed universe. throughout the world.

00:56:17--> 00:56:21

Poor people give more. And we're talking about proportion.

00:56:23--> 00:56:38

A person who gives half of their wealth person who gives 1000 pounds, and that's half of their saving is a greater philanthropists. And someone who has billions and gives away 100 million. That's pocket change.

00:56:40--> 00:56:44

So the poorest always tend to give the most

00:56:46--> 00:56:53

and the wealthiest invariably, by proportion, are more withholding than others.

00:56:54--> 00:57:09

So anyone who has these three qualities of the rejection of the truth and good of detachment from alarm, deeming themselves independent, needless drama, and withholding wealth and not sharing and not giving,

00:57:10--> 00:57:16

Allah says often for some of your civil hoarding, Ursula, we shall ease them into difficulty.

00:57:18--> 00:57:29

That means the greatest difficulty and discomforts will be in the hereafter. But before that, in the last panel of data will pave a path of sin for

00:57:30--> 00:57:40

what does that mean? Just as I said earlier, on, good leads to good virtue, opens doors for greater virtues.

00:57:42--> 00:57:48

A good deed makes a subsequent good deed easier, more natural, more comfortable, almost second nature.

00:57:51--> 00:57:54

Similarly, a sin one sin opens doors to others.

00:57:57--> 00:57:59

until it becomes a habit, it's second nature

00:58:02--> 00:58:04

eats and makes an excellent light

00:58:06--> 00:58:10

and less consequential in the person's mind.

00:58:11--> 00:58:14

Until they treat it, trivially.

00:58:15--> 00:58:18

And when a person embarks on that journey of sending

00:58:19--> 00:58:20

that then

00:58:21--> 00:58:30

the two paths diverged, they go in different directions. So a person becomes further and further away from good in virtue.

00:58:32--> 00:58:55

And there are many such warnings in the Quran. Just as Allah increases those in guidance who are already on guidance and gives them taqwa. Just as Allah gives greater dolphy and enablement and opportunity for people to do good, we're already doing good. Similarly, each sin creates a momentum for subsequent sales.

00:58:56--> 00:58:57

And there are many warnings.

00:58:58--> 00:59:10

Regarding this, for instance, a lot of horror essays will mean you sharp they will assume embarrassment of being a Lakota we lay the sub even meaning knowingly Hema to one level mostly eg

00:59:13--> 00:59:14

essays and whoever

00:59:17--> 00:59:23

disobeys the messenger. What opposes hear the word means opposes, and whoever opposes the messenger.

00:59:26--> 00:59:28

After the guidance has become clear for

00:59:30--> 00:59:38

and follows a path other than the path of the believers, originally meaning the companions of the alarm

00:59:39--> 00:59:49

will enlighten he who opposes the messenger and adopts a path other than the path of them what meaning the believers Allah says no one behemoths.

00:59:50--> 00:59:56

We shall turn him in the direction to which he has turned himself

00:59:57--> 00:59:59

once the hegemon

01:00:00--> 01:00:04

We shall thrust them into gentlemen, we're starting to see Ron evil and abode says.

01:00:05--> 01:00:09

So if a person chooses the path of sin and iniquity

01:00:10--> 01:00:14

and transgression and rebellion, Allah pushes them along that path.

01:00:17--> 01:00:27

The reward for a good deed is not only in the US Allah, Allah rewards a person for a good deed, but enabling them to do another good deed.

01:00:28--> 01:00:31

And the punishment for a sin is another sin.

01:00:34--> 01:00:37

This is why in one verse of the program, we spoke about truth.

01:00:38--> 01:00:54

We, in the story of heavies gathering the moniker of the alarm, and I mentioned that famous for the throttle to London was the alarm and related by Mahatma Muslim and others, the province of the law it was seldom said and it can be said

01:00:57--> 01:00:59

adhere to the truth for

01:01:00--> 01:01:15

the Illinois bill. Because truthfulness, truthfulness, guides to their cheer. When a person is true, that being honest and true, itself leads a person and guides them to greater virtue and righteousness.

01:01:17--> 01:01:40

When noble reality agenda, and virtue leads a person to jump, and then he continues to amaze our original Yes Look, with her sit at the back of the car, and a man speaks the truth and continues to speak the truth and seeks opportunities to speak the truth until he is recorded as a Sidique a voracious person in the sight of

01:01:42--> 01:01:44

what leads them to that set.

01:01:46--> 01:01:48

every act of honesty

01:01:49--> 01:02:04

every moment of truth leads them to greater truth. But then the Hadeeth continues what Yeah, welcome and beware of lying for in naka de la for jewel, for indeed line leads a person to send guides to sin.

01:02:06--> 01:02:12

Waiting for Julia dlnr and fou sinfulness lead guides a person to the fire.

01:02:13--> 01:02:15

Well, my eyes are originally active and a man

01:02:17--> 01:02:23

continues to learn with him and seek opportunities to lie

01:02:24--> 01:02:34

in the like, until he is registered as a serial, excessive, abundant liar in the sight of a lot.

01:02:35--> 01:02:45

Has this person reached out great. Each act of lying each act of dishonesty creates momentum for subsequent acts of dishonesty.

01:02:48--> 01:03:01

And this leads me to that verse which I was about to mention earlier on. last panel with Anna says, This is in relation to a group of some people who had made promises to Allah, they for love gives us wealth,

01:03:02--> 01:03:03

we will give it to charity.

01:03:07--> 01:03:09

And we will become pious and grateful.

01:03:12--> 01:03:18

So they made a vow and a promise that if Allah gives us wealth, we will spend we will give we will share

01:03:20--> 01:03:21

they were insincere

01:03:22--> 01:03:27

sort of losses for them. And for that he will be he was the winner.

01:03:28--> 01:03:40

So when Allah did give them of His grace and bounty, what do they do Buffett obey, they will miserly and stingy with that wealth. And they turned away what's been negligent?

01:03:42--> 01:03:43

So what did the larger

01:03:45--> 01:03:50

a lot punish them in this linear, but how did law punish them?

01:03:52--> 01:04:00

A lot punished that insincerity and their false oath and their false promise.

01:04:01--> 01:04:05

How, with further misdeeds and sins,

01:04:06--> 01:04:10

for the Falcon, people will be him lie to me and Obama.

01:04:12--> 01:04:27

Obama can we actually vote boom, I'll translate the verse from backwards so that makes it easier to understand. The ma la ma Why do we have the moon because of the fact that they

01:04:32--> 01:04:52

well faithless and disloyal to lie in what they promised him because of the fact that they betrayed a lie in what they promised. And because of the fact that they were lying. What did a larger Farah Kahuna Falcon vehicle obey Him? Allah created hypocrisy in their hearts to last till the Day of Judgment.

01:04:55--> 01:04:59

So the hypocrisy that seeps into their hearts was itself

01:05:00--> 01:05:11

punishments for their earlier line, and for their earlier false promises. Each sin creates further sins and the punishment of a sin is another sin.

01:05:14--> 01:05:28

And this is why it'll sort of last on the Lombardi or some of them says, in that famous Hadith again of barley and Muslim related to life, outside of the Allahumma herbarium and couldn't feed Ghana, Mona Lisa, woman can a tree

01:05:30--> 01:05:30

canopy,

01:05:32--> 01:06:01

die there is that domain at home with a head with a gun. What is the other way that has some of there are four things four traits you found in a person or four, then he is a pure hypocrites, now, one of them heartless, a pure hypocrites. And if one of these four deeds or traits are found in him, then he has in him a traitor hypocrisy until he ruins it. And the fall when he is entrusted with a trust, he is treacherous.

01:06:02--> 01:06:09

Number two, when he speaks he lies. Number three, when he makes a promise, he betrays.

01:06:10--> 01:06:20

And number four, when he falls into disputes with someone, then he sin, ie he takes the disagreements beyond its bounds.

01:06:21--> 01:06:26

Now, if all four are to be found at a person and that person was a pure hypocrites,

01:06:27--> 01:06:57

and if all four are not to be found, then he has in him a traits of hypocrisy. And what what does this heavy signify? You know what this Have you significance? Exactly what the verse says, if a person doesn't control that line, or that treachery, or those false promises, then that line those false promises that treacherous behavior will lead to over traits amongst these four until all four settle in a person's heart and then

01:07:00--> 01:07:03

as a Muslim or a relates in his

01:07:04--> 01:07:13

both a mammal heart in a Muslim relate the same buddies from say you're gonna walk around the alarm, but this is a wedding of a Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says

01:07:22--> 01:07:23

there are three

01:07:24--> 01:07:27

the signs of the hypocrites are three.

01:07:33--> 01:07:38

And then he mentioned the three and the famous is I had the other way that domina harm.

01:07:40--> 01:07:43

But when he speaks he loves

01:07:46--> 01:07:49

and when he's entrusted with a trust, is treacherous.

01:07:54--> 01:08:17

Either had the other way, they're wired that way that domina harnam. When he makes a promise, he breaks that promise and when he is entrusted with the trust is treacherous. This is a famous hadith of Boko Haram and Muslim. As I've mentioned before, the wording of a Muslim is slightly longer. And part of that Hadith is what insomma was Sala was ama and Muslim, even if he fasts and prays and claims to be a Muslim.

01:08:18--> 01:08:30

So when these four traits of hypocrisy settle in a person's heart, person can continue to pray and fast and claim to be a Muslim, but Allah forbid, if hypocrisy has set in

01:08:32--> 01:08:33

them.

01:08:34--> 01:08:46

So each sin leads to another sin and punishment of a sin can be another sin itself. So this is the meaning of Person A acetylcholine, Ursula, we shall ease into difficulty.

01:08:48--> 01:08:58

Loving says well my yoga in the animal model either this person who is attached to his riches and deems himself independent needless of a law.

01:09:00--> 01:09:04

his wealth will not avail him will not save him.

01:09:05--> 01:09:14

When he falls into the fire of jam, when he parishes, his wealth will not save him when he perishes. Indeed,

01:09:18--> 01:09:20

we are all going to die.

01:09:22--> 01:09:27

And even before the Great's of the armor, we will have the lesser, which is our death.

01:09:31--> 01:09:33

Until to work so hard

01:09:36--> 01:09:47

that we acquire and amass so much wealth, and in its process, we will wreck our health, our sanity and our relationship with a law. What do we get at the end of it?

01:09:48--> 01:09:51

We merely become the richest person in the graveyard.

01:09:54--> 01:09:56

That's our ultimate destiny.

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

And that's the meaning Will my human animal model you

01:10:00--> 01:10:04

I thought that when he falls when he parishes, when he has lowered into the grave,

01:10:07--> 01:10:11

his wealth will not avail him of anything is above will not save him.

01:10:13--> 01:10:16

Not at all, you'll do them no good

01:10:18--> 01:10:26

in the pursuit of loss and the love it some of them says that when a person does three things follow him,

01:10:30--> 01:10:35

his family, his wealth, and his deems, that when he is buried,

01:10:37--> 01:10:44

to things return, and one thing remains with him, his family returns, and his wealth returns.

01:10:47--> 01:10:50

And all that remains with him is D.

01:10:53--> 01:11:08

So, this whole this very well because of which he wrecked his relationship with Allah, and he deemed himself independence and needless Allah. And this wealth that he was so attached to that he held on to so tightly during his life and would never share would never get

01:11:10--> 01:11:23

the all of that same wealth will not be able to save him in any way when he falls into his grave, or when he parishes, whether it's the lesser perishing of death, or the greater perishing of damnation in the hereafter.

01:11:24--> 01:11:27

All I can say is in Marlene alhuda indeed

01:11:29--> 01:11:32

upon us, is surely guidance.

01:11:35--> 01:11:43

Meaning last parameter Anna says our GT is to guide you is to tell is to show

01:11:47--> 01:11:51

as a last season, sort of the shrimps which inshallah we'll be covering in the next

01:11:52--> 01:11:56

one I've seen well now so we're here for Allah Maha for Judah Taka

01:11:58--> 01:12:08

and by Allah by he who fashion the molded the soul, and having molded the soul alight inspired the soul to both its virtue and its

01:12:10--> 01:12:12

law shown as the way

01:12:16--> 01:12:31

in another verse, and we have shown him the two paths of good and evil here as well. Allah says, we've told you that the whole of creation, every individual of creation, will ultimately fall into one of these two groups.

01:12:33--> 01:12:48

Our duty is to show you to guide you to inform you. It's your duty to choose one of the two destinations, to make one of the two efforts to make your endeavor fit one of these two descriptions

01:12:50--> 01:12:54

were in and out of Africa that one all Allah says And verily to us.

01:12:56--> 01:13:02

And it's exclusive to us, meaning only to us, belongs the afterlife and the former life.

01:13:04--> 01:13:04

Meaning

01:13:12--> 01:13:13

whatever you do,

01:13:14--> 01:13:28

the world will never be yours. wealth will never be yours, the world and its wealth, the earth and its treasures, and not just this earth, but the universe.

01:13:30--> 01:13:38

Not just in this life, but the whole of creation and everything that exists in this life and in the afterlife all belong to.

01:13:40--> 01:13:46

So why do you wish to secure so much just for yourselves.

01:13:48--> 01:13:49

Everything belongs to Allah

01:13:52--> 01:13:57

and the meaning of the verses we live and we act as though it belongs to us.

01:13:59--> 01:14:09

That's fine one verse Allah says Allah will insert the Abu Margarita minimalist a mama read a moon in the la hora Rosa.

01:14:12--> 01:14:15

I have not created man except that they serve me.

01:14:17--> 01:14:22

My ultimate human risk, I do not seek any systems from them.

01:14:24--> 01:14:27

And I do not seek that they feed me.

01:14:28--> 01:14:31

Verily Allah He is the one who is the great sustain

01:14:32--> 01:14:34

and the one Almighty

01:14:36--> 01:14:44

and full of power and strength. And one of the meanings of that verse is why does the law mentioned that I don't see any sustenance from them or that they feed me

01:14:46--> 01:14:48

is that we amass wealth,

01:14:50--> 01:14:59

collected some gatherings as though we have to feed not only ourselves, but the whole of creation and not just the whole of creation.

01:15:00--> 01:15:01

But the Create

01:15:06--> 01:15:10

so Allah says, I have not created man except that they serve me.

01:15:12--> 01:15:17

But serve me through a bother through loyalty through obedience through worship

01:15:19--> 01:15:22

must serve me by working so hard as though they have to feed me.

01:15:26--> 01:15:47

So here as well in to us belong the afterlife and the former love and continues from the lava. Having said earlier that it is a promise to God. He says, so far, I have now warned you. Now I'm a lover of a fire that rages in flames.

01:15:49--> 01:15:55

lights in the sky will not enter the fire, except the one who is most wretched.

01:15:58--> 01:16:01

He who rejects Allah The gullible with the one

01:16:03--> 01:16:18

he who rejects in terms away. This is a continuation of the form of description. Someone who doesn't give, doesn't share rejects the good and the truth and detaches oneself from Allah, such a person will be the most wretched.

01:16:20--> 01:16:25

But conversely, in opposites Allah azza wa jal says, What's the agenda?

01:16:27--> 01:16:28

And

01:16:29--> 01:16:40

the one who is most fearing and guarding in relation to Allah, that person will be saved from the fire. But what will save a person

01:16:41--> 01:16:46

and what are some of the characteristics of taqwa again, there were mentioned earlier, the three were

01:16:48--> 01:16:50

believe in the good

01:16:51--> 01:16:55

taqwa and sharing and giving here.

01:16:57--> 01:16:59

The surah expands on that. So Allah says

01:17:01--> 01:17:10

that the most fearful and guarding will be saved from the fire. He who and then Allah mentions his description of the unit the matter who

01:17:11--> 01:17:17

he who gives his wealth, in order to seek purity, to purify himself.

01:17:19--> 01:17:20

He gives both sincerely

01:17:22--> 01:17:28

Eman leads a person to acquire leads a person to sharing and giving in the way of a loss

01:17:30--> 01:17:32

without seeking any Recompense.

01:17:34--> 01:17:57

And then Allah describes what Marley had done in the human netland input zamin he gives any shares as well, not as a currency so that they may gain something in return. No, Allah says Romani had an enigma. And no one has a favor outstanding, with this person that needs to be repaid

01:17:59--> 01:18:03

in the human error, and there is no favor

01:18:05--> 01:18:06

of any person

01:18:08--> 01:18:09

out standing by him

01:18:10--> 01:18:11

that needs to be repaid.

01:18:13--> 01:18:33

So the person doesn't give in payments for an earlier virtue or an earlier favor, rather without any obligation, without any compulsion, freely, willingly and with total sincerity and selflessness, that would that be that believe that gets in the way of law, and through that he purifies himself.

01:18:35--> 01:18:52

And this has mentioned another verse of the Quran, where Allah subhanho wa Taala praises those who share and have given charity and who shall be given the greatest bliss of gender and its blessings. Allah says in the moment of them, that's the one they give when they share.

01:18:53--> 01:19:04

Their words are in the mammoth mo from La, la, land reedman quintessa, Morocco, we feed you only for the sake of Allah.

01:19:06--> 01:19:11

We do not seek any reward, or even gratitude from

01:19:13--> 01:19:17

that's how sincere a believer should be when he or she gives him the way.

01:19:20--> 01:19:25

We don't see any repayments and forget repayments. We don't even wait for banks.

01:19:27--> 01:19:31

And if we are offended that the other person didn't show gratitude,

01:19:32--> 01:19:52

they should otherwise to their loss because in the interest of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seedsman the Michigan nursing school in LA he who is not grateful to the people is not grateful to Allah. But if the recipient of our of our donation and our charity doesn't express any gratitude,

01:19:54--> 01:19:56

should it hurts us, should it insult us.

01:19:57--> 01:19:59

Should we feel indignant? Should we feel

01:20:00--> 01:20:12

slighted in any way No. Because if we do, then it means that we gave and we shared, maybe not for a reward or an award, but we shared at least or gratitude.

01:20:15--> 01:20:18

The best charity is that which is given in sequence.

01:20:19--> 01:20:41

And if given openly, even that is virtuous, but even when giving openly, a person's intention should be sincere, sometimes a charity given openly is better than that given secretly, if, for instance, it encourages and motivates and inspires others to do the same, and others to spend as well. Then, if a person does that sincerely

01:20:44--> 01:20:47

save them I would have no hubbub it'll be a lot of harm.

01:20:49--> 01:20:51

When he was a medium meaning,

01:20:52--> 01:20:55

and his armies conquered Persia,

01:20:57--> 01:20:58

and they

01:20:59--> 01:21:00

captured

01:21:01--> 01:21:08

the imperial capital of sino Persia, with all its riches, its fabled riches,

01:21:10--> 01:21:12

and the jewelry and the treasures.

01:21:13--> 01:21:22

Leave the commander sent one simple companion of your loved one, to see that, above all the love under some of these treasures,

01:21:24--> 01:21:31

to deliver them, and he brought them and he submitted them say that above the law, one as a mark of their victory.

01:21:33--> 01:21:40

So say that armor of the alarm said, and what is your name? And he said, He who needs to know knows.

01:21:41--> 01:22:09

He never disclosed his name say that armor of the Allah. He carried out such a feat. You mentioned it was a mark of honor for him that he was bringing back the captured treasures, the fabled and legendary treasures of the Persian emperors. When he delivered them see them above the law one season I almost said What's your name? And he said he who needs to now knows meaning last panel.

01:22:13--> 01:22:23

And in that famous had either gang related by morehart in a Muslim from a war era hold the alarm on by others Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions seven traits.

01:22:25--> 01:22:39

Seven people at ease begins with the word Sebastian your little llama love to hear them allow them they love in law. There are seven people who Allah will give a shade on the day when there shall be no shade except to shade.

01:22:42--> 01:22:42

And

01:22:46--> 01:22:52

one of the people is the sort of loss of the law legal system said what are driven the sub

01:22:54--> 01:23:06

autonomous shimabuku Martin Cooper you mean and a man who gives in charity, but he can see all the charity, so much so that his left hand does not know what his right hand is.

01:23:08--> 01:23:15

Such a person Allah will grant to machine a space a space in his shade, on the day when there shall be no shade except to shade.

01:23:16--> 01:23:32

So when a person gives in the way of a law, it should be done with utmost sincerity. And in such a way that a person does not demand does not expect does not hope. Not even for any reward or award but not even for any crach

01:23:33--> 01:23:37

he and there is no outstanding favor. It's done selflessly and sincerely.

01:23:39--> 01:23:43

He gives only last season. The second last verse in the heart which he wrote, behold,

01:23:45--> 01:23:46

he gives only

01:23:50--> 01:23:53

to see the countenance of his Lord the Most High.

01:23:55--> 01:23:58

He only does it for the sake of Allah for Allah

01:23:59--> 01:24:12

and someone who does it in such a manner, Allah Enza surah by saying, well, a sofa, yellow bar, and Allah will be pleased with such a person. These final verses, although

01:24:13--> 01:24:25

it's mentioned often that these verses were revealed about saving the vehicle of the alarm. The truth is that these verses were revealed in the very early days of Islam.

01:24:26--> 01:24:34

And there are some narrations that suggest that they were revealed even before seeing them as a vehicle of the alarm ones.

01:24:35--> 01:24:54

Many acts of charity. So undoubtedly, he is the prime example of someone who spends in the way of Allah selflessly who gave all of his wealth. This is why the sort of loss of the love it was seldom said in his final farewell speech in in one of his failed speeches in Medina.

01:24:56--> 01:24:59

Not too long before he passed away and left this world that

01:25:01--> 01:25:01

Indeed,

01:25:05--> 01:25:07

the kindest to me.

01:25:08--> 01:25:16

And the one who has shown me the most favorite of all the people in his company and in his wealth is a Baba.

01:25:18--> 01:25:20

He was the most generous.

01:25:21--> 01:25:27

And when's How about the Allah gave of their wealth? No one could compete with them all because of the alarm.

01:25:28--> 01:25:38

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one occasion, he said to Bob, Oh, my, what have you brought? And he said, O Messenger of Allah, I have brought half of my wealth

01:25:40--> 01:26:03

and honor of the law, one had said to himself, that if on any occasion, I'm to be, and rival abubaker, then it will be today. So I said, I brought my wealth. When the alarm became a sort of muscle alarm. It was some of them said, Oh, aboubaker, what have you brought, and his words were, I have left a lot of a soul at heart.

01:26:05--> 01:26:07

I have left lung as messenger for my family.

01:26:10--> 01:26:22

And speaking of he has no favor, outstanding, and he does it for no such consideration. His father, who hadn't embraced Islam, yet, when he saw his son

01:26:24--> 01:27:01

spending so freely and freeing slaves in the earliest days of Islam. His father actually said to him in my hacking racket, the law here relates to everything is almost other. This is what I was saying earlier that there are some narration, which suggests that a worker of the law one did what he did, because of these verses, not that the verses were revealed because of him. So this is why he is a prime example, the first and foremost candidates for these verses. But you know, hacking, lack of the law here relates I had either his father said to him, oh, oh, my son, you free slaves, and you save them and rescue them from their cruel masters.

01:27:03--> 01:27:06

But the people you free, are all weak,

01:27:08--> 01:27:36

with no strength and no support. So wouldn't it be better if you did free low slaves, who have some support, and some backing, so that when you free them, they would be under a great obligation to you and they could help you, support you and assist you. So we'll look at the alarm who said, Father, I only free them because of what Allah has said. And then he recited these lists of

01:27:37--> 01:27:42

that he gives only to purify himself, and not because of any outstanding thing.

01:27:43--> 01:28:13

He only gives for the sake of Allah to seek the countenance of Allah, his Lord, the Most High, sulfur yellow bar, and he will be contempt. And with this, there's so much to say about these verses, by suffice with this, let me quickly translate the sort of again, I won't read the Arabic just a quick translation that has the original says, By the Knights when it conceals, and the day when it appears in its full glory, and by the creation of the of man and woman,

01:28:14--> 01:28:20

very, your endeavors are diverse. So as for one who gives,

01:28:21--> 01:28:32

and who fears the law, and who attests to the good, then we shall ease him into ease. And as for one, who is miserly

01:28:33--> 01:28:36

and deems himself independence in English or law,

01:28:37--> 01:28:42

who rejects the good, then we shall ease him and difficult

01:28:43--> 01:28:49

and his wealth will not save him when he parishes. Verily, it is upon us to guide

01:28:51--> 01:28:58

and indeed, verily, to us belong, the first life, the afterlife and the former life.

01:28:59--> 01:29:06

So I have warned you of a fire, that flames will not enter it to accept that most wretched one

01:29:09--> 01:29:10

who rejects and who turns away

01:29:13--> 01:29:24

and that most fearing one will be saved from it, who gives his wealth to purify himself and there is no outstanding favor of anyone by him to be repaid.

01:29:25--> 01:29:42

It gives only to see the countenance of his Lord the most high and he will be pleased. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah makes us amongst them, what's the law of demand after he wore a suit in the Vietnam humid while he was in stranica law
