File Size: 35.27MB
Allah has bestowed upon man higher intellect than any of his creation. The commentary of this surah draws attention to a beast that becomes totally subservient, servile and compliant to his master only because he shows a few favors towards it. Despite mans understanding, whilst being blessed with innumerable and immeasurable favors, he remains extremely ungrateful to his lord. Man is never satisfied and is forever complaining.
The insatiable greed for wealth corrupts the mind and character and leads to the disobedience of the creator. We are reminded to always prepare and think ahead for the hereafter. One should ponder and reflect on the purpose of life and remember that one will have to rise from the grave and account for his deeds before his lord. His pursuits in the world will all be terminated.
These notions will help eradicate all ailments of the heart and make a person more grateful, satisfied and obedient to his creator.

And having started from the end of the
we've completed the
other sort of leading up to this.
It's a verse Sorry, it's a sort of just 11 verses sort of an idea.
three main topics which are all interconnected. And I will elaborate in a moment. But just to go through the simple translation of the Sora last parable Diana says we'll add the globe

In the home the meal may be indeed their Lord

This is a simple translation of the verses.
There are three main topics which are all interconnected. In the first five versus last panel data speaks of
horses in battle.
Then in the next three verses,
law speaks about man's extremely ungrateful nature
and his passion
It's an intense level of wealth,
as well as the transgression, and the violence and the sin, that this level of wealth itself causes.
And the fact that man No man does all of this knowing

It warns him,

And then finally, in the font in the last three verses, a lot speaks of
the day of reckoning and the hereafter,
the time of resurrection,

So these are the three main topics and inshallah we'll go through them in order and they are connected. But let's look at the first five verses first, lots of data sees what are the activities
who charge pennant
are the art refers to horses,
fast running, and not just fast running. But charging horses.
These are known this is what's referred to by the word an idea. And the sort of main has been taken from this very first word, want to add the app by the charging horses.
in these first five versus last week saw horses in a particular state, in a particular condition which is
at the time of battle.
And a swift translation of these five verses will depict a very violent, startling,
frightening picture. What are the top half of the Godhead until the end that by the
who strike who if not sparks of fire,
who suddenly attack at dawn
and thereby at the time of dawn, they throw up and raise clouds of dust
they penetrate the ranks of the enemy.
And the words are for Sapna be he Gemma, they cleave this arm
into two. Now
all of this happens in battle and we may not have
we may have seen depictions of this in pictures and images and movies, etc.
And it is an awe inspiring spectacle.
about three or four years ago
All my life I have heard of I'd read accounts and seen images and pictures of charging horses.
But three or four years ago I was I went for a walk near a farm
was riding his horse at a gallop charging Well, not charging, but just
riding the horse quite fast. And I was in I was in the field.
And I saw him coming from a distance and I stopped. I was alone when I was watching a laugh. When I saw that horse coming in my direction,
and he rode past me, this was just a farm animal.
It wasn't a racer. It wasn't a battle horse, it wasn't a charger. It was quite heavy and stocking.
But as he rode past me,
whatever I had heard about and read about and understood and received of a charging horse or racing horse, and even seen it on screen in images and pictures, nothing had prepared me for that close the flock of a running horse, I wouldn't even say a racing horse or a charging horse.
So one can just imagine being in the midst of battle.
With these speeds, specifically prepared for battle,
and charging fiercely in the manner that allowed scribes,
printing, charging their hooves and horseshoe striking up sparks and igniting sparks of fire on their repeated contact with the ground, throwing up dust in the morning for suddenly he lost that film, he lost his somehow those who suddenly attack in the morning
and penetrate the ranks of the enemy and throw up clouds of dust.
That is the image which the arrows are quite used to.
The Arabs being a tribal society, we're fit we're fearsome warriors,
very loose in their structure and organization. But they were fearsome warriors, and they prided themselves on their courage and valor.
buy those horses that pant, when they charge
has ignited sparks of fire, and who attack in the morning.
It was always he had always been customer in battle. And in fact, it remains so for various reasons that armies would attack each other, or launch attacks or fights an open battle, especially in the morning at the crack of dawn.
So this whole imagery of horses in battle, Allah subhanho wa Taala actually swears by these horses.
Just as throughout the barn, he swears by many objects of his own creation of his creation, the sun, the moon, the sky, even man even men soul.
Well, man, so the sun the moon, stars. So here law has the witches, swears by these
In this particular state, when they charge in battle, throwing up dust sparks, fiercely, charging into the enemy cleaving the whole multitude of the opposing forces and dividing the whole army with such courage, valor and fearlessness.
So Allah swears by them,
after having sworn by such a major thing.
What is the statements that alarm banks pending? Such
a statement is
in them in the sun a little bit here?
Indeed, very man is surely extremely ungrateful to his Lord.
What an interesting question here what connection does
the fight the first set of verses have with the statement? What's the connection between the both
of these war battles leads these war horses, these charging courses,
ignites in sparks of fire and throwing up dust and penetrating the ranks of the enemy and cleaving a multitude of forces. What connection does this imagery have with the fact that man is ungrateful to Allah?
It's very simple.
Let's take a look at these horses.
A horse is a mountain. Strong, sturdy, beautiful and graceful, intelligent tan.
It is not dumb.
It is highly intelligent.
It's as fast, intelligent,
prepossessing strong and sturdy, mighty resemblance.
That's one single horse.
And as a last panel with Anna saves some Harmon Lilly Sahara Lana has
been in Iraq.
In the Quran, Allah speaks, addressing people that so that you can sit astride these animals. And so that you can say when you mount them to ride for transport, some ham and ladies, this is a this is a pseudonym prescribed for traveling sapan under the Sahara and I have our Magneto Crimean War in Iraq in Iraq, it boom, glory be to that law.
Who has made this this animal, this beast, subservient to us.
And we will not want to make this animal compliance and subservient terms at all. And indeed, we are, surely to return to our Lord. That is
because if you look at this animal,
let's just focus on the horse itself. As I said, it's intelligent, it's mighty, it's beautiful, it's graceful, it's strong and sturdy. It can outrun any man.
It can outpace any man by far
no giant of a man
or even a group of men can actually control a horse.
If it wishes to be resisting and resilience.
One kick of a horse could kill a man.
If the horse wishes,
it could buck
and throw any experience rider off in an instance
and trample him
Allah has made these animals so subservient, so compliant, that man sits astride them, rides them, loads them with weights, luggage and baggage uses them for transport. And these animals are compliant and subservient. It is only a last panel who who has made these animals compliant and subservient to
without laws will and bofi
man would not have been able to achieve this
and the relationship between men and horses such and this is the description here. That What does men do for a horse?
The most the evidence is feed its father,
grass, which he himself has not created. He feeds that father and grass a treat every now and then if that man gives horse the horse food father, drink water
passes, cleans it
and gives it shelf.
And just for these few favors,
which hardly cost man anything
which do not take up so much of his time. For these few favors, that horse becomes totally compliant survival, subservient. bidding the command of its master the horse this beautiful, graceful, intelligent, strong and steady animal treats. This individual was a total stranger who feeds it waters it cleans it packs it and shelters it that horse gives itself over and submits to this person treats him like a master and is willing to be humiliated, ridden, mounted, use for transport even beaten and whipped
and yet the horse will
not make a single exclamation,
in despair, in in gratitude or have a complaint, so much so that when man rides the horse, mountains, heavy laden with armor
and rides into battle
when man when this horse weights in the ranks,
with the other
horses and with the rest of the cavalry.
And this animal sees the other seeds prepared for it knows that it's been prepared for war and battle. It sees these heavily armed, armored,
soldiers and riders on these horses, when it smells, the dust of war, when it can smell the stink and the stench of tension and fear in the air, when it knows that it is going to be hurtling headlong into battle,
and possible death, when it knows that it will be exposed to all manner of artillery, armaments, weapons, spears, arrows,
or whatever project times when it knows all of this, and when the horse knows that it is defenseless, it is at the mercy of its rider. And the rider has one purpose alone, to fight to kill to be killed or to survive, but no consideration for the horse. The horse is merely an instrument or to
the animal knows all of this. And yet simply because this rider this master has given it grass and water, grass which grew from the earth and water which fell from the heavens.
The horse admits
the horse expense and is willing to charge into battle and die for the sake of this master.
And that's the imagery portrayed in these first few verses, by the charging panting horses quit ignite sparks of fire, wise sparks of fire, because that's the severity and the intensity, and the rigor and vigor with which these horses charge into battle. So fearlessly that on the way they strike and ignite sparks of fire.
That's the speed.
And then those who attack a first sudden charge and attack in the morning.
With such intensity was such violence that they thought clouds of dust. Normally in the morning, there's no dust.
In the clap, they throw up clouds of dust, and they penetrate the ranks of the enemy cleaving the whole enemy in the multitude of the forces and splitting. Because that's what cavalry normally does.
The sudden clash.
The horses will accept all of this and be willing to die simply because the rider has fed the same horse the grass that grew from the earth and watered it with the water that fell from the heavens.
And yet in contrast, Allah saves by the charging horses that pen by the charge by the panting charges. Those who strike up and ignite sparks of fire. Those who suddenly attack in the morning and thereby throb clouds of dust, and those who penetrate the ranks of the enemy. Indeed, man is extremely ungrateful. So his Lord, the connection, look at this horse, and how surveil her cow compliance, how grateful it says, because of grass and water, and in contrast, look at man, what has a lot not given?
Just grass and father and water from the heavens. Allah has given man greater intelligence than the animal.
Allah has given man higher intelligence than any beach.
over and above all beasts. In fact, a law has made these powerful beasts subservient to the will and the command of men.
Law has made men the most honored of his whole creation of his whole creation.
Allah has created ma'am for a particular purpose.
to return men to his original abode of gem.
Allah has given so much to men.
Despite receiving more from Allah than any beast has received from men, man is far more ungrateful to Allah than any bs can lead to.
That's about last eaten in them in Santa no biggie like a mood. Indeed, man is extremely ungrateful to his Lord
means extremely ungrateful.
And we are grateful man is most grateful.
There are many verses of the Quran that describe memes and gretch
in one verse
in in Santa Holika Halawa with antisocial Jesu with them so hate on the nor
has been created Hulu
when misfortune befalls him
he's extremely panic.
And my good fortune means

This is man's relationship with a la

If we give men a taste of mercy from ourselves,
then we take away that mercy from him.
Indeed, he is extremely despairing and Spondon.
and if we give him a taste of some good fortune after some misfortune that has befallen him,
then he surely saves the other car to me in the whole affection for who all evils have departed from me. Then he is exultant, arrogant and boastful.
This is the meaning of a helluva man is in temperates in another verse, political in the sun, I mean a man has been created with a temperament of haste.
Very rash, very impetuous.
Lacking self control
in temperates always going to extremes
and that's why a lot describes Hulu so beautifully.
collected in Santa Rosa map has been created Hulu or in temperates. In Amazon, as well Allah when misfortune befalls him his he is extremely panic, he panics
but when good fortune meets money, it becomes negatively and stingy.
In another verse, whether in San amin, Allah subhanho Dallas is with a Muslim son or daughter Anna in the gym, be he Oh garden Oh Karima. For the maca Schaffner. Rahul maraca and Amir Dona Illa.
Allah cassinelli mustafina Can we Ahmed whom Allah says, and when misfortune or calamity touches man,
he calls out to as lying on his side, or sitting or standing. Then when we remove his misfortune and calamity from
he passes by in front of us, as though he never ever called us

what all of these verses show is that man has a very fickle relationship with his creator.
And what's the nature of that fickle relationship?
It's a very selfish one even with Allah.
But when this fortune befalls man,
man panics, despairs, becomes despondent. And in that panic and in that despondency in that despair, man turns to allow and frantically and fretfully Praise to Allah. But this turning to Allah, this prayer,
this devotion, these applications
are all very selfish, now insincere.
For all men wants is not the level of the law, or to offer true devotion to Allah, or to truly serve Allah. What man wants is for his panic to be addressed, for his fears to be alleviated, for his misfortune, to be removed, for his calamity, to be relieved of his suffering and calamity. And when that happens, when the goal has been achieved when the only objective has been realized, then Allah is dispensed with and discarded, just like man dispenses with and discards anything or anyone that is no longer have used.
Then when good fortune meets man, what does the law describing as being more stingy, niggardly and tight fisted?
No longer wishes to share and spend?
It becomes exultant and arrogant. In that other verse.
He explains enjoy the other see out only all evils have departed from. This is how intemperate man is. On the one hand, men, when one small thing happens to man, man forgets all of the last favors and becomes panicky and despondent and despairing.
It's like that one pain, that one sorrow, that one single loss
is the loss of the whole world, and every other good
vanishes from man's memory.
But then, this is how intemperance manifests how impetuous but then as soon as good fortune meets man, it's almost as though all his sorrows and worries have gone. And as a last as he explained, to me, all ills have departed from me in the hall of reckoning for Hall. But he doesn't say that in gratitude. He says that because he is intemperance, impetuous, unable to control himself, his soul takes him to one extreme, and then his joy takes him to the other to the other extreme, when his joy takes him to the other extreme. What does he do in the hula for whom Allah says, he becomes boastful, exultant, strutting about an arrogance, no balance, no moderation, whatsoever. This is the
meaning of political insano helluva man has been created. Hello.
This is how I'm grateful man is all of these verses are related to this one verse in the insanity.
Indeed, man is extremely ungrateful to his Lord. And in fact, a man has some busted up.
One of the most famous therby he used to say that the meaning of gold, he gave a very specific definition of gold. He said, ngannou doesn't just mean and grateful, can mood is,
is the definition, or the identification of that person who is forever complaining?
Never has good to say.
it's always complaining of misfortune, of ills of suffering, and never sees good in anything.
Crude is the forever grumbling,
sad individual, the pessimist who sees no good in anything.
That's the meaning of God according to
the law. But all of these definitions fall into the single word which is man is extremely ungrateful to Allah.
the whole theme of the song
is very similar to other students that are close by. We did sort of do mine a few weeks ago.
Sorry, a few months ago, and in there.
Well, I'll reference that later. Let's go through this software. So the first thing in the Linux
And Europe. Indeed man is extremely ungrateful to his law.
Then the next thing which Allah mentions
and which is connected. One of the reasons for his and gratitude is
his love of wealth.
But before we go on to that the next verse says, women who Allah vertical Shaheed, indeed man is extremely ungrateful to his Lord, and indeed he is over this ashore witness.
me man is a witness to his own gratitude.
And that's in two ways one.
Well, the main, the main reason is
to two things.
He may say he is grateful to allow,
how is man a witness against himself over his own in gratitude, two ways, number one, externally.
By tongue he may say
that I am grateful, and he may even offer
words of praise and gratitude and sugar to Allah. But
the reality of his deeds belies the claim of his words. He claims by tongue to be grateful to Allah. Yeah, his deeds and his actions belie him and prove the contrary, that in fact, man is ungrateful toddlers, by deed.
There are many ways of this being a testimony against them.
Because the way man behaves, if he was truly grateful to Allah azza wa jal, he would not behave in that manner, he would be far more serving to Allah, he would be compliant and subservient to the commands of Allah.
Just like the beasts are to man, for simply feeding and watering.
So man's misdeeds are proof of his in gratitude
And in gratitude is also a reference to the way and the manner in which a favorite is used.
last parameter with data has given men intelligence, sense faculties, strength, these limbs of the body. Now, if man uses these things, these senses these faculties, these gifts of intelligence, of sight of hearing of speech,
a lot, man use this as heart and this mind and the spot in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala, that would be a sign of gratitude in itself. But if a man abuses these gifts of the law, then regardless of whether the man is expresses gratitude verbally or doesn't,
the misuse of the abuse of the gifts of a law is an extreme form of gratitude in itself.
Failure to use the gifts of Allah has xojo for their designated purpose is an act of in gratitude in itself. It may be a very crude example. But let's say one individual goes to great lengths
to purchase a gift, a very valuable gift
for another purse.
Let's say they've got the purchase
a 2000 pound laptop, for someone
that's very expensive, they actually went to great lengths to
earn that money acquire that money and purchases. And the intention was that this person will use it, it's not a throwaway gift. This is for permanent chiefs, for enduring lasting use for many years to come.
And the trouble that they have gone through,
they purchase a laptop with the intention of gifting it and then intention is that the person will use it, the person will use it for good.
The person will remember them every time they use it.
This will be their means and method of communication interaction.
a laptop is something that we'll use for work for personal use for social use for many hours each day. Every site
The laptop, every use every key pressed, every time it's touched and carried, will remind the person of the one who gifted it
and will create that bond and love. That's what that's intentional the individual, they imagined they give that gift of a laptop, someone
and the person for whatever reason, puts it away,
never uses it.
Even worse, gives it away to someone else.
Imagine they give it away to someone else. So he gives it to be
full these intentions, B then gives it to see
and tries to win and acquire all the love have seen that a wanted of D
Imagine if the first person found out that this is what they have done with my heart and gift.
their hopes have been dashed, their dreams have been shattered. Everything that they have hoped for aspire to,
has been lost.
Imagine the pain
before they want to acquire their love. Now they will probably become so bitter. They would wish to inflict pain on human nature.
It's now good human nature.
what means more to the one who has gifted this a single word of thanks Oh, thank you, you shouldn't have
all the knowledge that the person is indeed using it for the purpose for which it was gifted. What matters more, a single expression of gratitude meaningless verbal. Thanks, oh, thank you really shouldn't have
the knowledge that indeed the person is using it for the reasons gifted. That's between one human being and another last panel with Allah has given so many gifts and bestowed so many favors upon man.
Every one of those favors, has been gifted to man and bestowed on him with a design and with a purpose and for designated use. And for an objective. Every time man fails to use that gift for the purpose that Allah created it and bestowed it on him. Every time man abuses that gift for the wrong use. That is
an actual and physical and more meaningful expression of ingratitude.
And that's why la has a little sayings on the Day of Judgment. In the summer, we'll bust out a wonderful
ruler, that man will be questioned about hearing and sight and the heart on the day of reckoning. If anything, these limbs.
Man will be made to fall silent, and the limbs will testify against man himself.
it's a headache of cinnamon.
Each morning when man wakes up
the limbs of the body plead
with the tongue of man.
And so, if you asked we are as you are in demand
for in this context on our in which there will judge now if you are straight, we are straight and if you are bent we are
each limb has a purpose. Allah Subhana Allah Allah has given it for a reason. It should be used for that if it isn't, it's in gratitude. So in them son got up he left the mood. We're in Havana vertical Shahid. Indeed, man is a witness against himself over his in gratitude. And this is I said there were two forms of him being a witness, how is he a witness against himself over his gratitude? This is in two ways The first way is this, the his deeds and his limbs, belie his verbal expression of, of gratitude. And the second reason is inside one is external, one is internal. How is he internally a witness against himself? externally, he is a witness against himself, always in
gratitude, by his misdeeds and by the fact that he is not using the favors of Allah in the right manner and internally, deep down
In the deepest innermost recesses of one's mind, in the deepest
chambers of one's heart, there is that nagging voice of conscience.
A voice that tells us that you are wrong.
You are ungrateful. If man wants to be humble, and meditate
his own actions and deeds, and be sincere and not be self justifying, man is a witness against himself over his in gratitude.
Deep down, every one of us knows this. This is why Allah says we're in Nevada Vatican II, and indeed he is a witness against himself of us.
Then Allah says, we're in the holy lead, and indeed he is, in his love of wealth, severe
they all connected, why is man ungrateful?
One of the main reasons is because of his level of wealth.
Men can never get enough of one
man always thinks he has too little.
So when you think you haven't got what you want,
that's when you will hanker after more.
That's when you will feel that you've got nothing to be grateful about.
What do I have to be grateful about? I haven't got the million that I wanted. When Allah gives you the million, what do I have to be grateful about? I haven't got the scores of millions that I need, might even want it but need
when a law gives man scores of millions, man is still ungrateful. I've mentioned this before, not now, this is a good few years ago, I read an article which said that, in
one is no longer considered rich. If a person is a millionaire.
And they spoke to them surveyed many people
the new mark of wealth, this was a good few years ago, the new mark of wealth is over 100 million. So you're not considered wealthy or rich until you have more than 100 million.
When a person has hundreds of 100 million, still not rich, hundreds of millions, then a billionaire, and the billionaires aren't happy I
and the last panel with Allah gave the Prophet some of the love I think, or some of them, the most concise,
the most succinct, the most comprehensive, all encompassing words of wisdom. After the book of Allah and the speech of Allah, no speech can match or parallel the speech of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says
that I have been granted all encompassing comprehensive, succinct words.
And his description is beautiful. We only have to reflect.
Forget billions, forget hundreds of billions. Forget the time when we will see the first trillionaire
forget all of this.
The most precious commodity or one of the most precious commodities known to man is gold.
And we measure gold,
in ounces, and in grams.
We have scales of gold, that are my means. And look at the price of gold at the moment.
What does the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say and how does he describe man's competitors nature?
man's covetousness his greed
his insatiable greed, his dissatisfaction regardless of how much he has
from Abdullah Vader, the lover and the narrator says we heard Abdullah Abu Zubaydah the Allahu and say and remember
that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say a
lot of them are worthy men that
have the La fernea
Well, it Athenian habitually
What are your jokes are done in the Torah
tab. If man was given a value filled with gold, he would desire a second and he was given a second value of gold
He would desire a third
and nothing will fill the vacuum in man except the dust of the earth. And Allah relent in repentance to one who turns to alive.
ie there is no cure for this disease except the destiny.
This is a disease, this insatiable greed.
We measure gold in ounces and grams and look at the imagery of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his words, look at the depiction
in action imagine
ounces of gold grams nuggets, gold bars,
crates of trays.
Progress, look at it in progression. From answers, from grams to answers answers to
high end measurements to a single bar, then from a single bar to a tray of bars of gold, then a crate of trays of bars of gold.
in turn entire pallets, and then not just trays and crates and pallets, but a whole vault. Imagine a whole vault full of gold. And then he mentioned not one or two vaults, but vaults in the side of a mountain. Then forget the vaults in the side of the mountain. Imagine the entire valley between two mountains, full of gold. If man had that he would still desire second.
And if he was given a second he will still desire a third. What can cure that greed? What can fill that greed? Men things man has a vacuum inside him. This has a meaning what I used to joke
that there's the inner vacuum of man, nothing can fill that.
Nothing. The only thing that can fill that vacuum in man is a drop Disturbia. And when will that happen? As a law says, and her court castle rivalry, one upmanship has distracted you, and this will continue until zoo
only when you visit the graves and the dust of the earth will fill that vacuum and space in you. Will man, man's insatiable greed come to an end.
Man's love of wealth is intense when the Holy machine and this is the reason for his ingratitude man always thinks I haven't got enough. I need more.
He doesn't just want it he thinks he needs it.
And who makes him think that shavon? And why does he make him think that some of us shave longer URI Docomo?
The devil threatens you with poverty.
The reason men desires wealth and hankers after wealth is not for now. It's for the future. It's always for the future. It's never for now.
It's always for the future. This is what Allah says Shakedown threatens you with poverty. Your poverty isn't now shaytan threatens you with poverty in the future. We're always hoarding and planning and looking ahead,
planning for the future.
And it's never enough. If you notice, whatever good we intend to do. It's always contingent on acquiring wealth, and we have many euphemisms for that. So if we, if you speak well, if we speak to ourselves, we're always thinking and saying that inshallah I will do this good. I will start that, I will do this, I will do that. But when all good, and all future good projects and all noble deeds are contingent on becoming financially secure, stable, settling down, earning enough, these are all euphemisms for hoarding wealth in the future, but one can never be too financially secure. One can never really be settled down. This becoming financially secure and settling down and acquiring
enough wealth and being at peace being content, none of this will ever happen. None of it.
And this will continue to man reaches a gret
and this is why when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was recited sort of MacArthur, his words are so beautiful Allahu Akbar.
Philosophy of the world
and the psychology of the human mind
and the secrets of man's character
can all be found in one place in the simple words of Allah, some of them love it him, some of them. The greatest truths are the simplest.
And look at this beautiful description. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in my Muslim I had to learn a related record by relate to these from Abdullah here on the line who says, I visited the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When I visited him, he was reciting sort of the gospel, the gospel does have
to do when he finished. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
You are the
man the man, man says, my wealth, my wealth
than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Well, hello, Adam Malik. Elana, I need all of this the late office of the phone the
man says, my wealth, the son of Adam says, my wealth, my wealth, but oh man, do you have any wealth in reality?
What do you have any of your wealth Do you really possess any of your wealth, except what you have eaten and therefore expired, or what you have worn and then therefore have worn out what you have given in charity and therefore sent ahead for yourself.
And these words are described even better, by another hadith of Muslim against a Muslim, Muslim, I have to learn how to relate to the law and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Your poodle abdomen Imani. The servant says of Allah says my wealth, my wealth in the motorhoming mother Heath Allah. In fact, of his wealth, he only has three things, my life now what he has eaten and therefore expired.
All my liberties
for all what he has worn and therefore worn at Alma McDonough, or what he has given and therefore hoarded a treasure for himself in the hereafter.
And whatever else is Besides this, for her there have been without a cooling nurse, and he is about to depart and leave it all for the people.
And the meaning of both these two headings is very simple.
That whatever wealth we actually enjoy and possess, it's now or what we've already used. It's never for the future.
And shavon always threatens us with lack or loss of wealth in the future.
No matter how rich we may be now, and we are all rich now.
What's the meaning of whatever else is besides he is about to leave, it's for the people, it's very simple.
No matter you may have billions,
what belongs to you, is only what you've actually eaten. That was yours. You ate it, it nourished you, it gave you strength is supplied you energy, you enjoyed it's taste, it was yours. Its name was written for you, if your name was written on it, it was designated for you, that nourished you that fed you. That was yours. It didn't nourish anybody else.
And that has expired, or what you've worn, you want to coach you warning for 10 years. Now it's worn out, it's useless for anybody else. you've enjoyed 10 years of it. Yes, that's your wealth. How many coats can a person wear at one time?
How many clothes can a person where? How much food can one person eat at any one given time.
And the third thing is, unless you give given charity, then you have secured that reward for yourself. Everything else, your house, your assets, your possessions, your billions, your millions, all your wealth together, which you lose sleep over which you hanker after which you fret over which you're so anxious about all of that when you go, you are about to go you're going to leave it behind for others to swallow.
That's the reality of wealth.
And wealth does a lot. We don't have time to go into any of this. But I explained in sort of the gut that sort of that wealth makes a person niggardly tight fisted. Not only that wealth makes person violence, wealth makes a person,
disobedient to Allah, wealth, makes a person transgress wealth corrupts the mind and the character. It really does. There are many verses about the poor. We don't have time to go through them refer to that
have sort of the castle especially.
But to move on losses were in the hate in the Shaheed indeed man is passionate and intense in the love of wealth. And there's another meaning to this, that because of wealth man is also intense and harsh and hard, because wealth corrupts his character in his mind. And there are verses throughout the program that attest to this. And because of his love of wealth, he is ungrateful.
Then the last panel with Allah mentions the third part of the sutra which deals with the hereafter.
Why does it Why is men like this? Why is men so ungrateful? Why is he so passionate and intense in his love for wealth in this dunya? Is dunya everlasting? No Far from it? I feel
what I feel, I feel a wall. Why doesn't he think ahead, if he wants to think ahead?
If he wants to plan for the future.
If he doesn't want to be caught out, I'm aware.
If he wants to look ahead, then let him look this far further than what was there on that field?
Does he not realize that when that which isn't the greys will become scattered,
ie the occupants of the earth. The corpses of the earth will be thrown out by the graves.
On the day of reckoning.
I felt I animate you that what fit on earth? Well, hustler math is the earth will reveal and expunge all its treasures, good and bad. On the day of reckoning, the earth will throw up all of its corpses, and the dead shall rise and they will be resurrected, and they will stand before lightning reckoning and accountability in judgment.
And not only will the earth reveal its treasures and secrets.
But man's hearts will also reveal all of its secrets on that day.
Even though man maybe reluctance, the wording is very powerful.
What was said a math is pseudo law has his origin says and that which is in the bosoms, that which is in the hearts will be extracted.
Sin, it will be extracted.
Despite the reluctance of man,
just as a law mentions in other smaller Yama tubeless, or our arrow on the day, when the secret shall be revealed.
What set him off his sword all in my feeling D their Lord is well aware of them all knowing of them on that day. This brings us to the end of the surah.
I'll just summarize again and explain the connection with sort of the my own and sort of the castle. Many of the themes are similar and it's actually quite connected to the sort of before it which we haven't done yet. It has an article that was written
in Sonoma Yama in
ohada. You made the mouse a shot in the Euro from a young
last panel with Anna says, when the earth shall be shaken, it's a violent shake.
Among the earth shall cast out its weights, its burdens.
A man will say What is it with the earth?
Why will man exclaim that y'all may even get the Baja for on that day, the earth will speak of its tails. You know what the meaning of this is one of the meanings of this is on your day arm on the day of reckoning. Men
will want to conceal his misdeeds. But everyone and everything else will testify against him, his minions will testify against them, the very spot of the earth, on which he committed that sin will testify to alarm.
The earth will speak the limbs will be given a voice, man silence for a short while.
On that day, people should emerge from their graves in groups
just as a lot easier is that what philomath is a woman that which is in the grave shot and scattered.
So whoever whoever has done an atom's weight of good will see each reward and whoever's committed an atom's weight of sin will see each reward to students are well connected and supermarine
Before sort of MacArthur, what does sort of MacArthur speak of man's blind level of wealth and man's vying with other men and people's one upmanship and rivalry in the wealth of the world, and that this continues till man visits our graves, same thing here. What you know, Julio will hate Alicia deed, that man is intense in his love of wealth. Why does he look ahead? Allah mentions graves again.
And what does the law same sort of MacArthur at the end, similar to soluna Yama isn't any name on that day, you will surely be questioned about the blessings of Allah.
And here again, what does the law say in them in Santa Clara, he would indeed man's and grateful to Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught his gratitude demand Muslim rapper to LA Haley relates to the youth in his say
that one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came out and he sort of a bucket and a lot of the a lot
of the Allahumma Prophet sallallahu wasallam said to them, what brings you out at this time it was hot, at this time of the day what brings you and they both said hunger or messenger of Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said by Allah, what has brought you out as brought me out to hunger.
She said, Come. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the alarm, went to an unsightly companions home, they knocked and asked if he was in, he had gone out to get water for the family. But they were invited in, they sat when the companion returned. He saw them. And he explained, there is no one today who is more honored by his guests than I am.
I'm the most honored of all people for who are my guests.
But he had no food.
So the province, so he, there was a knife, he picked up the knife, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam realized that he is about to go out and slaughter an animal. But what he did before he picked up the knife who went and he got some dates,
slightly roll middle, and ripe, and soft, tender,
different ones, and he presented them. Then he got the knife, and he was about to depart from the house, the province of the law of some sort, he's taken an AI and he's about slaughter an animal. And since he wasn't rich or wealthy, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam feared that he may in honor of the Prophet, and his guests slaught that animal which they normally use for milk. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Don't slaughter an animal that gives milk. And he went out and he slaughtered a goat or a lamb small animal. And then their
hunger had driven them from their hands
in the heat of the day, and this was their condition, man. So when they get profits from the law, I think was alum, having eds. And having drunk, he said to the other companions, to your loved one, Homer, by that law, in whose hands rest my soul, that to suddenly oma is in an MRI, you will be questioned by Allah, on the day of judgement about this faith
about this place.
So they said, Will we be questioned about this prophets of Allah height of Islam said, Yes, he emerged from your homes a hungry
and a lot will return you to your homes for
you will be questioned by
water from Allah and a single morsel of food demands our scratch.
And if we focus on the good
and disregard the bad,
we can be more grateful to live so much. And that's so this is how it's related to sort of MacArthur And finally, how is it related supermarine I'll summarize with this and if we look at the whole sorter last week, so the war horses, who are so self sacrificing in the love and the service of the human Master, for having given the horse, grass and water
Why is man in contrast to this, despite all the favors of Allah Subhan grateful to Allah, one of the reasons is his level of wealth. And his level of wealth is intemperate.
It's excessive, it's intense. It makes him forget everything and everything everyone else. It makes him corrupt and it blinds him to the reality of the
To the reality of the Hereafter, and it makes me grateful. This is one of the reasons for ease and gratitude and that Allah Enza, sort of by reminding us, that
man should remind himself constantly Of The Day of Reckoning of the hereafter and of accountability. If there is no fear of a law, and if there is not accountability, then man will be like this. And that was the whole theme of sort of tomorrow or eight in the UK, they will be Dean for that weekend of the year, not really a theme when I had gone out on the screen.
Law says, Have you not seen one who rejects the religion? And what was religion with the means? reckoning accountability in the hereafter. That's meaning of the not so much religion in general. But the reckoning and accountability? Have you seen one who rejects the reckoning or rejects accountability?
He's the one who will violently push away the orphan and normally encourage others to feed the poor and the needy.
And then the sort of ends with ella veniam Marina Marin, those who will hold even the most bare essentials from the people that are negatively and stingy they become what was the whole theme of the sutra, very simple a theme was just one, which is that when men is not when man does not fear accountability, when man does not feel responsible for his or her deeds, when man feels that there is no one to answer to, and there will be no reckoning and no accountability. Man has no boundaries and no limits, man will become corrupt and violent men will save to the lowest of the low.
And this is why Allah says here also that why doesn't men think ahead of that accountability on the day of judgment?
And what kind of reckoning will it be on the day of judgment? What are the markers for though not only will be the inhabitants of the graves extracted, but the secrets of the hearts will be extracted? A lot is well aware of what people will do on that day.
So the theme of this sort of is also
be accountable to Allah has his origin, think about the hereafter ponder and reflect on the purpose of life, where we are heading, our destiny and our destination. If man is not on, if man will be heedless of the Hereafter, man will not feel any accountability than man will be exceeding and intense, and intemperate, and imbalanced in his love of wealth and the dunya his love of wealth will make him ungrateful. And how ungrateful a man become that he will sink even lower than the level of the animals. The animals were better than him, that even the horses in war, will be willing to die and sacrifice their lives in themselves, for the love and the gratitude of one master rider who gave
them grass and water. And yet man, with all the blessings in the favor of Allah is ungrateful to Allah his origin. In this surah, who comes out better, the horse or man,
the beast or man,
man will sink lower than the level of the animals and the beasts. If man is ungrateful to Allah, if man does not fear, accountability,
and if man remains intense and his love for Allah, but if man can overcome,
if man can overcome
the love of wealth,
if men can learn to be grateful to Allah, as he should, if man can fear accountability on the day of reckoning, and prepare oneself for that meeting with Allah, than men can rise well above the animals. In fact, man can rise to the heights.
We are last panel with Allah enable us to understand the words of the sort of male lawmakers amongst those who are grateful or are preparing for the hereafter. Male lawmakers amongst those who are not overwhelmed and overcome and defeated by the level of wealth was a lot worse than the man after he was sworn in to be a non human while he was in panic a lot and
that was the critical October lake. Before I ended, let me just go through one of the quick translation of the sort of just to recap, last panel without essays by the
those who ignites sparks of fire, those who suddenly attack in the morning and thereby thought dust and thereby
indeed, man is extremely ungrateful to his law. And indeed, he is a witness over this against himself.
And indeed, he is
in the level of wealth intense, does he not realize
that when all that is in the graves will be scattered?
And when that which is in the bosom of the hearts will be extracted?
Like does he not realize what will happen to him then, in order to make them happy, indeed, his Lord is well indeed their Lord is well aware and knowing of them on that day was the law was the
law and he was a train.
