00:00:00--> 00:00:00

Hi,

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

I'm

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

Tina on Jamba

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

Juice Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. Allah has he Baladi Naka, follow

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

me by deeming dooney only

00:00:30--> 00:01:20

in our antigen, Jahan emmalin caffine, inner nos Zola sakalava love him. So the first I recited before you is verse one or two out of the 110 verses of this 18 chapter of the Quran. A quick correlation between this verse and the verse that precedes it, verse one, or one and verse 100. In verse 100, Allah subhanho wa Taala said Allah Johanna Yama, even little cafe in Alba, on the day of the Yama Hellfire will be presented before the disbeliever and the criminal in verse 101. Allah subhanho wa Taala said Allah dinakaran Philippa in the gray, those whose gazes was supposedly veiled they will fail because they opted for blindness. First, the hog balama alhuda. First the hog balama

00:01:20--> 00:02:04

Buddha, Allah subhanho wa Taala says they opted for blindness over vision. And yet in another place of the Quran, Allah says Allah, Allah The National Road Bella Terra Bella Buddha estado abala letter Buddha, they decided to barter and exchange guidance for deviation from Arabi had de Jara to him. So their trade did not prosper from Allah behati Zhao rato Omar Khan, Omar Dean and they were not guided. But on the day of the Yama that veil will be removed and the claim that they used to say hello bonavia I can now our hearts have been blocked off we are done in our water and there's definitely in our ears when we bind in our body nikka hijaab and there is a veil between us and you

00:02:04--> 00:02:16

all this will be cleared what would happen he under obey in a de falla era in the Narottama awaji. Now you will see Hellfire with the naked eye May Allah protect us

00:02:18--> 00:03:08

in verse 102, now the robbed by the robbed obeying the signs of the wisdom of the correlation between verses in verse 102, Allah subhanho wa Taala asked a question. You've heard the consequences and the repercussions of Cofer affair has he been led in a careful route? Do the disbelievers and the infidel stole the thing and yet does he do it by them? Min dooney Alia, that they can make mine servants with my exclusion, their helpers, guardians and allies. I body according to many scholars refer to the angels and the prophets who were worshipped by different groups of people across the time. Do they think that they are going to make my servants my prophets, my angels, their gods and

00:03:08--> 00:04:04

their partners and their allies? And the scholars of Tafseer also say assuming assuming that they can get benefit from them, and this act of worship will rescue them. No, no, no. In our dead then na Johanna Malin, Kathie Lee now knows the concluding portion of verse 102 Verily, We have prepared in verily as after dinner prepared little catharina for the disbelievers jahannam Hellfire newzoo law as a form of reception, right. So nozel in Arabic refers to mejorando live life in that new zuill when a visitor just comes home, how you welcome him and you receive Him and you give him some, you know, basic things to just tend to realize his taste buds before you have your levy spread and

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

before you have your full meal. So the beginning the reception the you know, just the starters. Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to Hellfire as their hospitality. Of course this is the hug, come and behave the hug come and be as the scholars say, in mockery to them in ridicule to them, as Allah says in other places of the Quran for bashira, whom they either been Aleem, tell them, that's some good news for them, and their good news is a severe punishment is a severe punishment.

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

So, in the Niger anomaly, Katharina Newsela in Surah tulawaka What does Allah subhanho wa Taala say? That on the day of Yama when the occupants of hell will enter hell May Allah protect us due to the intensity of the thirst, they will be compelled to drink any liquid that is offered to them, and then they will be made to drink

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

boiling hot water by Shari Boone has shown her belly him fossati buena show rubelli him they will drink like how thirsty camels drink they will drink like how thirsty camels ding Ha. No Zulu home yo madain this will be their entertainment, their reception, their hospitality in El fire. So my inner Maru JIRA Humala, in

00:05:30--> 00:05:54

the past, the punishment of Hell is still severe and intense. So that is verse 102, verse 103, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, boy, Hell no, not be Oh calm, serene ama call Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, should we inform you of those who are the worst of losers in terms of their actions?

00:05:55--> 00:06:37

No, nobody wants to be a loser, my brother and nobody wants to be a failure, my sister, neither in your academic career, neither in your business venture, neither in your travels, neither amongst your peers. Everybody wants to excel achieve and accomplish. Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, pull the Hell no, never be overcome Bill accidie in ama, should we not inform you could say hell should not be oakum inform you Bill us studying and basic Arabic will tell you that this is a symbol of lien, which means the greatest of all losers, the greatest there are different types of losers and categories. But these are the absolute losers. And that's the losers of Arthur.

00:06:39--> 00:07:33

Because now the ruin and the consequences are eternal. And there is no chance to compensate in this world you lost a year you lost a month, you lost X amount of money, you lost the deal. You can try and atone for it. But once you've left this world, there's no come back. Hell no not be Oh come bill x sadena Amala the losers in terms of actions. The scholars of tafsir tell us generally two things result in a person being a loser, either it is NIF out hypocrisy May Allah save us or it is incorrect. RT and RT that is a very, very integral article of our faith. That is correct believe the other man say that it is possible Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive someone if his artega and his

00:07:33--> 00:08:20

belief system is correct, but he was deficient in terms of the execution of his actions. So he had the correct aqidah about Allah at the correct aqidah and believe about the ambia yet the correct it the about resurrection, he had the correct RT the about the Quran in terms of belief, his belief was spot on. However, he was deficient in the execution of those actions. There is, you know, hope that Allah subhanho wa Taala has clemency grace and mercy will envelope a person as it is the discretion of Allah it is the machine of Allah. But if a person's it that is not correct, his belief is not right, his belief regarding Allah His Nabi sallallahu, some towhee, the Sahaba the Quran, the divine

00:08:20--> 00:08:42

scriptures, then I'm afraid the consequences of that is catastrophic, and that typically results in the destruction and the ruination of all your good actions may Allah protect us and hence, we need to be very, very particular about correcting our IP correcting our warranty. One quick thought here

00:08:44--> 00:09:32

when it comes to the adoption of means the adoption of means. So Islam is a very practical, pragmatic, user friendly religion. Islam encourages us and impresses upon us to adopt means, which is within the limits and the boundaries of the Sharia. We don't adopt a means which is forbidden, but what is within the means yes, we need to adopt it. Say No, no Holly is Salatu was Salam was stole to build the ark before the coming of the floods. And Allah subhanho wa Taala was going to send the floods Allah could have protected say no hallahan salam without the adoption of the means. And no mobile Shara tell us Bab la lune fee ha la Yu na fee at our cool and now mobile shala tell us

00:09:32--> 00:09:59

Bab loon Fie and how the adoption of means for which Allah has given consent does not go contrary to the station of the word cool and reliance on a lot. Of course when the floods came now the command of Allah was to board the ark bought the ark and the son of New Haven Salaam can and decided to take shelter on the center of the mountain under the claim that it will give him asylum. So are we eligible?

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

ers limonium in Alabama, it will rescue me from the floods. And the father said, No, no, it's not going to rescue you. And from there we learn that the adoption of means which go contrary to the command of the Almighty, then that is against the teachings of Islam and against a man because at that time the command was not to go and take shelter, but the command was to embrace the faith and bought the ark. So, in a nutshell, the scholars tell us Terkel s BB not to adopt means not to adopt means is a sin from amongst other sins, it is maxia it is a sin. We've been told to take the precautions exercise the precaution and take the different measures. However, reliance on precaution

00:10:48--> 00:10:49

is Cofer

00:10:50--> 00:11:43

reliance on precaution is Cofer. So, we need to be clear, the adoption of precaution is necessary and to avoid precaution or not to adopt precaution is a sin is a violation, but to rely on precaution, I am driving slow, I have buckled up. I am not exceeding the speed limit. So now nothing can happen to me. No, no, no, no, I cannot put my reliance on that precaution. And having put my reliance on Allah, I cannot abandon the precaution. Listen, I trust in Allah and I rely on Allah so I can drive at any speed that is also reckless, and that is also incorrect. And that is also off the mark. What the boom of that father, who when he spoke about his son, it's a very long poem, and it's

00:11:43--> 00:11:46

a very emotional poem, in that he says that

00:11:47--> 00:11:58

I knew very well I knew very well the hub for rodden fc la da for London FC La Liga were in the Alamo and

00:11:59--> 00:12:40

an El Moussa dama jello, the hub for Rada FC La Liga, oh my word. Oh, my son, my inner self is concerned about your well being that you must not be afflicted with any harm. We're in elemental mode. Dr. Maya Angelou knowing very well that I cannot tamper with the decree of destiny. So where are you my son? Where are you? My daughter phoned me message me WhatsApp Call Me video call me SMS me. drop me a line Keep me posted. knowing very well that what Alliance decreed I cannot change. But just my father in love and my motherly love for you is concerned that nothing must come to you.

00:12:42--> 00:13:27

So the point i'm saying is adoption of means just I'm talking of one RT that is necessary. It's important it's correct. But reliance on that means is Cofer, we do not rely on means we rely on Allah. Listen, take this medication you will be cured No no, no, no no. Take this medication with the help of Allah you will be cured with the help of Allah you will be cured. So the adoption of medication is necessary because that is what what we need to do we've been told but it is subject to Allah put in your in that medication. So just one important aspect of course it is a great and a significant branch of our Deen and our teachings. Okay, verse number 104. Allah the novelist Phil

00:13:27--> 00:13:52

hyah did dunya what would you say buena Anna whom you see known as Sana they are those people whose efforts are destroyed in this worldly life and living in those bullet destroyed sapele you whom they toiling? Will hieratic dunya in this world, well, Mamma mia sub una unknown yakezie known as soon why they assume and they were under the notion that they were doing good things.

00:13:54--> 00:14:43

I cannot possibly imagine the intensity of the regret of a person who had the incorrect belief and the wrong notion that what he was doing is right and correct and accepted. And then he appears before Allah subhanho wa Taala, only to discover because of the hub in his act EDA, the distortion of his belief that his actions have been rendered null and void. Hakeem Omar Rahim Allah speaks about a personal experience of ease that he was once traveling on the train, and person boarded the train going in a particular direction. And the person who bought it next to him assumed the train was going in a different direction. Anyway, he sat down in his cabin occupied his place, he was

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

quite happy and comfortable and settled. All his good is happy, everything's good, I'm heading to this direction, but he didn't take note etc, you know, on the finer details, and somehow he got in. Of course, these were many years back where all those finer details were not, you know, monitored slow, so closely.

00:15:01--> 00:15:41

I personally had an encounter. And I know as hilarious as it is, in a country in Africa, in a country in Africa. We got into the aircraft, and we boarded the flight, close the doors Welcome on board. This flight is now bound to Johannesburg, South Africa. And a person runs out from the rear and he's like, sorry, I'm on the wrong flight. I'm telling you, this was a personal personal encounter, right? So obviously, the authorities coming through somehow did not monitor did not take care or did not see his boarding pass correctly, etc. And you know what, it was just so hilarious, and it was just so laughable. It was just so laughable. Okay, coming back to that incident, they

00:15:41--> 00:16:24

boarded the train going in a particular direction. The person regarding whom that analogy is he thought the train was going in a direction but it was going in the opposite is happening. He's settled his good. Finally throughout the night, they travel in the morning when it comes to the platform and it arrives at that station, and he looks out of the window. He realizes I was in the wrong direction totally. hakimullah Amara Kamala says at that time it struck me at that time it struck me that the disbeliever is occupied his seat is moving in his direction is comfortable in his position, but he doesn't know this conveyance is not moving in the right direction. And I'm fine

00:16:24--> 00:17:13

there's amenities here food is good company is great. All is looking well. But when I arrive at my destination, what Kadima a llama, I mean, Lumina, Hamelin. fauja. I'll na Hubba amento Ra, we will focus our, our, you know, grandia and magnanimity on whatever they have presented, and we will reduce their actions to scattered dust a verse of the 19th Jews first page, sort of for con Waka demna illa, I'm Illumina Hamelin, alladhina Birla sapele, you whom those who styling will be destroyed, or whom Yasser buena, under whom yakezie known as sadhana. And these were those people who assumed I was doing the right thing I was doing the correct thing. We got to constantly ask

00:17:13--> 00:17:59

Allah for guidance and and and seek the guidance and and be sincere because that's the promise of Allah. If you sincerely ask and this is what I always say I've had many many dialogues, discussions slash debates with fellow non Muslims, travelers, etc, etc. The topic gets into religion he shares his thoughts I share my thoughts in a very respectful, dignified good way respectful because remember when you're inviting to Islam, Allah says Oh, in Serbia, Rebecca bill mon river, Elizabeth Arabic Erbil hikmah right invite towards the Dean of the Almighty invite towards the Dean of the Almighty it is the verse of the 14 Jews chapter 16 surah two nahal invite towards Allah with wisdom

00:17:59--> 00:18:24

well, mon river till Hasina and good advise, what Jaya de Lune billet II accent and let argument be the third option and that also the grand qualifies it in a good way. On the first page of the 21st Joseph right in Surah, to Lanka Buddha, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, while to JLo and Al Kitab, in lability, here accent, do not argue but in a dignified way.

00:18:25--> 00:19:12

So I always say to them, you have your opinion, I've shared my thoughts. I can say to you clearly with no fear of contradiction tonight when you retire to bed, my brother, then just say, Lord God, Almighty, whoever you are, I am seeking the truth guide me to the correct religion. And I have no doubt I have no doubt. If you are candid and honest and sincere, and you make that supplication Allah will guide you to Islam, Allah who, Allah who yeji Tubby la he may, he may or may you need a verse of the 25 years of the Quran Surah Surah. Allah says I select whomsoever I wish for guidance. And I guide anyone who seeks it sincerely. Okay, Allah He can live in a cave for over a year there

00:19:12--> 00:19:31

have been verse number 105, who are those whose efforts and toil in will be rendered null and void? Those who does believe who may suffer? So Cofer is deplorable. Despicable, unpardonable in the court of Allah if you died in the state of Kufa, Allah subhanho wa Taala says about

00:19:33--> 00:20:00

the parents or the family of an OB mark and Elena bu alladhina amanu mark and Elena Bua Latina Armando, as Dr. Fiero lil machete kin wallow cannoli photobombing da de matchable janilla woman as hireable Jacqueline McConnell in Nabhi, it is not correct for an Obi Wan Latina Armando and for the believers and yesterday Roland mushrikeen to seek forgiveness.

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

For the polytheists who have died as polysius wello ganhou only pourover even if it is your relatives mean by the matter by gonna love him and know him as hobbling him. Now many people find this difficult to digest, you go to any you know what school or tertiary Institute they have certain subjects which are compulsory, you will not be given the next grade if you don't pass your compulsory subject. The entry into a man into journeyman is your compulsory subject you could have well done and excelled you could have even excelled others that probably took position in those non essential subjects. You know, you were great, you were amazing. But when it came to your core

00:20:43--> 00:21:01

subjects, it came to your compulsory subject you failed. Sorry, sir, you're going to repeat the year sorry, we cannot allow you the promotion. Sorry. You know what you have failed your core subjects. The core subject of entry into gender is a man. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says Jana to hide any

00:21:02--> 00:21:30

one man sila ha woman Salah having about him was wedding in general they will be made to enter with their parents, siblings, spouses, provided they is nobility, meaning they have a man and that we can only hope, wish and pray my brother, my sister, because I cannot talk loud and you cannot talk loud. Life is evolving. It is changing. We need to desperately beg Allah desperately beg Allah that He does not deprive us of Eman.

00:21:31--> 00:22:03

It is his kindness, His grace and His mercy and we need to constantly ask Allah to save us from uttering or doing things which will result in the invalidation of our Eman and beg him to guide us to utter those things which will preserve and affirm and keep our faith ear and Eamon in Dec without Akin Latina katha rubia therapy him those who does believe in Allah when he thought he and in the meeting with Allah for happy thought, man to whom Allah in Ashoka like button.

00:22:05--> 00:22:51

Shared polytheism disbelief will result in the invalidation of your good deeds, I always say they can be no greater act of reward for a disbeliever then to be blessed with a man and they can be no greater punishment for a believer than to be deprived of Eman. When when he came when his brother Yolanda accepted Islam and he was very generous. So he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What am I generosity as a non Muslim be Will I be compensated for it? Will I be rewarded for it I was very generous and there are so many incidents of his generosity. And the messenger sallallahu Sallam said Aslam, da Allah as left I mean higher. Allah has rewarded you for your generosity as a

00:22:51--> 00:23:18

non Muslim by blessing you with Islam. Wow. Wow. The greatest reward you can get for any act as a disbeliever is to be privileged with a man and the greatest punishment that I can suffer any Muslim can suffer is that Allah subhanaw taala destroys our Eman? Was it not those two people who were arguing in the authentic hadith and one said to the other, Allah will never forgive you.

00:23:19--> 00:24:07

And Allah said, Mandela yet Allah Allah Neela thoroughly Fuller, and who's deciding for me that I will not forgive? Who's deciding for me that I have not I will not forgive. I have. I have rendered your good actions now. And I have cleared the slate of his evil actions both on par Now start fresh. Yes, this isn't authentic narrations. Of course when a person dies, what does believe then it is not us passing the judgment. We are only speaking about the judgment that Allah has passed. Allah has passed his judgment in Allah hella young Pharaoh au Shara Cubby, where young Pharaoh Madonna directly mania Shah, that Allah subhanho wa Taala will not forgive the fact that anyone ascribes

00:24:07--> 00:24:58

partners with him falando de Mola Romeo multi Yama, it was not there will be no scales, no weight that will be established for them on the day of the Yama obviously because of the absence of Eman it will not have any weight or any meaning and it will not have any any strength on the day of the Yama. Furthermore, in verse 106, Allah subhanho wa Taala says de la caja Johanna mobi ma cafaro at the hadoo Yeah, it was really husa Danica Jessa does hell will be their punishment because they disbelief we mark cafaro right by Serbia because they does believe what tougher do it well, Rosalie Rosa, and they made my signs and my profits a mockery. So the worst form of tech VB is husa.

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

If

00:25:00--> 00:25:28

One is you say I don't accept the truth that itself is bad. Remember the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I'll keep robot rule hacktivism tunas. When the when the companions as the prophets Allah is and what's the definition of arrogance? He said arrogance is to deny the truth. Even if you do it in a humble way that's been arrogant because you're denying the truth. You are refuting the truth okay brew petrol heart Welcome to PNAS, and to consider other people to be inferior to consider other people to be inferior.

00:25:30--> 00:26:12

But the worst form the worst form of denial and refutation is mockery. Or really, Oh, I can't believe this man. Oh, you having a laugh? Or kid me not man. You kidding me? Really? There's the day like resurrection Okay, what did aspirin Why will say to hubbub in para la No, he was only money. Oh really? I owe you money. Okay, you know what you I believe you're talking about this other life. I'll pay you there. Yeah, you must come and collect it. What? For it Lady capalaba Yeah, Tina wacol Allah. Allah Allah, Allah Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Have you seen this arrogant person who saying I'll get wealth and children in the next life? Allah said callous and October Maja pulo mahmudullah

00:26:12--> 00:26:17

woman Allah be mad. When you're poor, you lose what you have nevermind get more.

00:26:19--> 00:27:12

You won't have anything you won't have anything so that they can just go home. Johanna moviemaker for over a year it will also Lee husa is that the worst form of gopher is the denial of the truth, the denial of the truth and that also is in a mockery. When you are mocking that's the worst form. One is you haven't accepted it. That's one thing. But mocking the truth is the worst form of denial. The la caja omiana movie mag cafaro What the hell? Yeah, it was Ali, who's the WA and Allah subhanaw taala speaks about it in different verses of the Quran. How the disbelievers mocked how they does believe as more so on the day of the Yama they will suffer a severe consequences they will suffer in

00:27:12--> 00:27:55

fact has an bursary Rahim Allah used to say Hassan bursary and I read this myself he used to say that the Manasa tea because they used to like fake they were superficial they were they were lying we Muslims no we're not and they played like this dual game. So the Mana 15 will be marked at a door of Jannah will be open and they will be invited and as they will come close the door will be you know shut upon them and bolted upon them. Can you imagine that consequences and that you know dealing with that in Astra May Allah protect us that he can just boom Jana Moby maka photo This is their consequences their repercussion, hellfire. Bhima cafaro because of the disbelievers because of

00:27:55--> 00:27:59

the Cofer, what the hadoo it were Rosalie yahooza, and they made

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

my my messengers and my verses a mockery. And then we move on to verse number 107. And this is the general pattern of the Quran, Allah contrasts it. So if Allah speaks of hell, then he speaks of paradise. If he speaks of evil, then he speaks of good. If he speaks of his punishment, then he speaks of His mercy. And that's the general pattern of the Quran. And now Allah subhanaw taala speaks about the people of Jannah May Allah make us from amongst them, you can only rejoice when we die with a man and that we have been entered there. Of course, it gives you a hope and gives you excitement that Allah has made us amongst the believers, and hopefully, hopefully, but we cannot be

00:28:39--> 00:29:13

loud and arrogant. Because we don't know how things can change one slip up my brother one slip up. I mean, I keep on saying and I've seen this so many times, you go to these embassies and you furnish those documents and you submit that document and all they say, You know what? You're supposed to fill in the form in blueprint and you did it in black print. Sorry, you know what? We're not going to accept your application. No, but I mean, sorry, sir. You're supposed to read that. You need to do it in black print. You did it in blue. Sorry.

00:29:14--> 00:30:00

Okay. Your photo size doesn't satisfy the requirement. Sorry. declined. Like, like, it's so funny. It's so meticulous on such as, and this is their discretion. And let's say that the the ambassador has the prerogative to approve or decline. Allah subhanho wa Taala is the King of all kings. It is his right. It is his authority. It is his domain. Everything belongs to him, everything belongs to him. So we don't know how that is why I often say and recently I was saying to my siblings and family that you know, sometimes we give charity and we say Oh Allah if I have earned Oh Allah if I have slept, so I said to my family, no, let's not say that. say Oh Allah. I have earned or

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

Allah I have slept our land giving charity Forgive me not if I have, I was arrogant to my employee. I was haughty on the road I was abrupt to someone. My body language didn't come across right? I gave off the notion that I am superior. I'm not saying our love forgive me if I have earned I am saying I have my Allah I have. I beg you Don't take me to account for my mistakes. Oh ALLAH forgive me, forgive me. Anyway, we move forward in alladhina amanu amilo Sally hartikainen Atilla Hoon genital Ferdowsi. Newsela, verse 107, as for those who bring him on and do righteous deeds, study the Quran, my brother and my sister as we draw towards the end of this amazing chapter of the Quran, and I

00:30:43--> 00:31:30

trust you enjoyed this journey with me, and I hope that it will spur you on to continue your quest of the knowledge of the Quran. That's that's been my hope, my dream and my vision. I always say it's, it's my my dream that we stand in in salah and the Imam is reciting a passage of the Quran. And the entire congregation has understood, not the translation, but the commentary and the related sciences of that portion and passage of the Quran. And every body is traveling along with that recitation, understanding the depth, the injunctions, the correlations, the context, the commentary, and all the related sciences. Wow, wow, wow. That would be what a dream what a dream. May Allah give

00:31:30--> 00:32:15

it to me? May Allah grant it to us all. In the levina armano hamilo. Sally hard those who bring a man but follow it up with the performance of righteous deeds can Atilla whom Jana, Tony Fadell, Dorsey Newsela they shall definitely receive their reception in in the gardens of Jana, they will definitely receive there is a reception in general for those. Okay, a quick reflection, a man couple with good dates. So we need to be constantly doing good deeds. Garnet lagoon for them there is Jannat gardens alifair those, there is this academic discussion here. And the grammarians. You know what Arabic grammarian and philologist speak about is there in the Quran non Arabic words or not? So

00:32:15--> 00:32:58

some say like the word field those or Yaga those Santa Barbara de Santa Bertie is the word Santa also it's in the meaning of lemon llama and of course, the brightness of the light.
