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

Yes, we concluded on the note where these

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

evil, wicked, nasty

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

individuals

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

had,

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

embarked on their wicked mission,

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

with the evil motive to assassinate

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

a Nibi. Can you imagine how evil an

00:01:05--> 00:01:06

individual has to be

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

to to,

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

plan and plot,

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

and orchestrate

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

the killing and the assassination

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

of a prophet?

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

So Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala said the disbelievers

00:01:30--> 00:01:33

said to their prophets respectively in the different

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

time era and

00:01:34--> 00:01:36

age. We will expel you.

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

We will expel you. We will banish you.

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

We will ostracize you, we will drive you

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

out of our land.

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

But in the end, Allah drove them out.

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

They were evicted and they were wiped out

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

just not from the land but from the

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

face of the Earth. So let's see what

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

happens here. Verse 50.

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

So this is Mabri.

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

They had plotted Makran

00:02:04--> 00:02:05

which comes

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

they had their play

00:02:07--> 00:02:10

uh-uh plan in place. Like firm.

00:02:11--> 00:02:13

You know, in Suratul Noon, in Suratul Kalam,

00:02:13--> 00:02:15

when those brothers who who,

00:02:16--> 00:02:18

inherited the orchard from their father and again,

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

it was in Sanah in in in,

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

in in Yemen as we're speaking about Beltis.

00:02:22--> 00:02:25

This is geographical location as explored by the

00:02:25--> 00:02:27

experts on the exegesis of the Quran.

00:02:28--> 00:02:28

And,

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

They said we're getting up in the morning.

00:02:34--> 00:02:37

We're gonna harvest the crop and, we're gonna

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

do this and, the poor won't get anything.

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

And they made no exceptions. Like, we're on

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

top of this plan. You know, if but

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

what if what what happens if this happened?

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

No. No. They had no ifs and buts.

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

They had no considerations

00:02:48--> 00:02:49

of any,

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

anything to happen otherwise. They were so certain

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

and convinced.

00:02:53--> 00:02:55

I'm gonna do this. I'll show you.

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

Sometimes your overconfidence in life can be very

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

expensive.

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

I'm the one to decide who will get

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

the job, and the next best thing is

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

you looking for a job.

00:03:06--> 00:03:07

I will decide on the proposal and the

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

next best thing you looking for the proposal.

00:03:10--> 00:03:12

Don't ever be certain on anything.

00:03:13--> 00:03:16

Allah is Allah has absolute knowledge. Allah has

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

absolute.

00:03:17--> 00:03:20

Humans in every endeavor, oh, Allah, you guide

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

it. Oh, Allah, you you put goodness in

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

it. Oh, Allah, you bless it.

00:03:23--> 00:03:25

You think your job is secured. You think

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

the trip is secured.

00:03:27--> 00:03:29

You think the deal is secured. No. No.

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

Nobody's gonna out buy me. I'll I'll I'll

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

I'll put the highest bid on the auction.

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

So, like, you know what? I'm I'm I'm

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

I'm the key player. I'm the main person.

00:03:38--> 00:03:41

No. No. No. No. Nothing. Allah is absolute.

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

Here they plot in evil,

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

and they feel that they're in control over

00:03:46--> 00:03:48

it. Makarum, Makran.

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

They plotted their plot. Or Makarna.

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

Makran.

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

And we had our plot and scheme and

00:03:56--> 00:03:57

plan in place.

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

Verse 50. And they were clueless.

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

They were unaware. They were oblivious.

00:04:04--> 00:04:07

They had no idea regarding our plan.

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

So they come,

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

according to the narration of Duraman Thuzoor as

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

they approach

00:04:12--> 00:04:15

and they come. And, subhanallah, look at this.

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

Allah gives grace and respite

00:04:17--> 00:04:19

till the last moment, like, till the last

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

moment. So, yeah, I'm having a flash. Right?

00:04:21--> 00:04:23

Said, now Musa alayhi salam strikes the water

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

and then the water opens up and cross

00:04:26--> 00:04:29

and Musa alayhi salam crosses. And Musa alayhi

00:04:29--> 00:04:31

salam and his people cross over.

00:04:32--> 00:04:35

Allah, by his wisdom, doesn't cause the water

00:04:35--> 00:04:38

to close upon them before pharaoh enters the

00:04:38--> 00:04:40

water. No. No. Allah allows him to get

00:04:40--> 00:04:41

into the water.

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

So he gets into the water. Pharaoh and

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

his army are pursuing

00:04:45--> 00:04:48

pursuing when they get in. In fact, narrations

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

suggest pharaoh was kinda halfway through. And,

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

you know,

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

outwardly, it would look like, you know what,

00:04:54--> 00:04:56

it's happening for them as well.

00:04:56--> 00:04:58

In in fact, in

00:04:59--> 00:05:01

in where he writes,

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

you know, the typical

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

body language a pharaoh would be when he's

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

seeing the water splitting,

00:05:07--> 00:05:08

he would say,

00:05:17--> 00:05:19

Just look at the water. Even the water

00:05:19--> 00:05:21

knows that I've made my presence. So even

00:05:21--> 00:05:23

the water is is moving up and changing

00:05:23--> 00:05:26

direction so that I can intercept these people.

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

That was the kind of arrogance, and Allah

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

gives grace still that last moment. So pharaoh

00:05:30--> 00:05:32

gets in. Within his army gets in, and

00:05:32--> 00:05:35

they cross in swiftly, and they're in confident.

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

Look at them. I mean, who said this

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

is a miracle to Moses? It's for us

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

as well. We enjoy the same privileges and

00:05:40--> 00:05:41

perks. And then when they got in the

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

dead center and the last person of the

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

army of pharaoh was inside,

00:05:45--> 00:05:47

then how do I translate as the Quran

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

says,

00:05:52--> 00:05:56

And did the water then envelope them? And

00:05:56--> 00:05:58

did you know, and did he learn a

00:05:58--> 00:05:59

lesson of life?

00:05:59--> 00:06:02

And did he learn a oh, my word.

00:06:02--> 00:06:04

Oh, my world. What a lesson of life.

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

Goodness.

00:06:07--> 00:06:09

And did the water envelope him and the

00:06:09--> 00:06:11

manner in which it enveloped him.

00:06:31--> 00:06:33

The believers. But it was said to him,

00:06:33--> 00:06:34

Al'an,

00:06:35--> 00:06:36

you've missed the boat,

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

you've missed the train, too late.

00:06:39--> 00:06:43

Alaan Waqadda Asayd, you're arrogant person. Too late.

00:06:44--> 00:06:47

So they come, these 9 people plotting

00:06:47--> 00:06:51

the assassination of Salih alayhis salaam. Allah is

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

aware of their plan. They are unaware of

00:06:53--> 00:06:55

the plan of Allah. They come to the

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

house. Allah allows that to occur. Let's make

00:06:58--> 00:06:59

a distinction here.

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

There's a distinction and there's a difference between

00:07:03--> 00:07:04

allowance and approval.

00:07:05--> 00:07:06

An examiner

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

allows

00:07:09--> 00:07:09

a student

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

to

00:07:11--> 00:07:14

write the incorrect answer. He doesn't approve it.

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

In an oral examination,

00:07:18--> 00:07:21

you question a student, he answers the incorrect

00:07:21--> 00:07:21

answer.

00:07:22--> 00:07:23

You're not going to tell him anything about

00:07:23--> 00:07:26

it. It would be foolish and naive of

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

him to say, oh, well, my teacher didn't

00:07:28--> 00:07:29

rebuke me. So I think my answer was

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

right. I was walking in the,

00:07:32--> 00:07:34

examiner passed by me and he seen what

00:07:34--> 00:07:35

I was writing. He said, oh, okay. You're

00:07:35--> 00:07:37

writing. Good luck. Oh, okay.

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

Good luck. All the best. So I assume

00:07:39--> 00:07:41

my answer is right. No. It's an examination.

00:07:42--> 00:07:43

I'm not gonna tell you what is right

00:07:43--> 00:07:45

and wrong when when I when I,

00:07:47--> 00:07:49

you know, what examined the paper and then

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

I marked the paper, that's the time you

00:07:51--> 00:07:53

will realize and discover what was correct and

00:07:53--> 00:07:54

what was incorrect.

00:07:55--> 00:07:56

In this world Allah

00:07:57--> 00:07:57

disapproves

00:07:58--> 00:07:59

of disbelief.

00:08:00--> 00:08:01

It is wrong.

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

Allah is not pleased. Allah does not accept,

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

disbelief

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

but yes, Allah allows it to happen. Allah

00:08:11--> 00:08:12

disapproves

00:08:12--> 00:08:16

and dislikes and despises oppression and tyranny, but

00:08:16--> 00:08:19

it's a world things occur. So there's a

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

difference between allowance and approval.

00:08:22--> 00:08:24

There's a difference between allowance and approval.

00:08:26--> 00:08:27

So they come right up to the house

00:08:27--> 00:08:28

of salaam

00:08:30--> 00:08:32

and they are confident. We're in control. We're

00:08:32--> 00:08:35

gonna do this here. According to the narration

00:08:35--> 00:08:37

of Duram Mansoor, as they come close,

00:08:37--> 00:08:40

Allah causes a boulder to roll on them

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

and crush them from nowhere.

00:08:42--> 00:08:45

Like, you know, they didn't plan or assume.

00:08:45--> 00:08:47

You know, you say it's a freak accident.

00:08:47--> 00:08:48

It's a freak accident.

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

Freak accident is like, oh, so strange. Never

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

thought of,

00:08:52--> 00:08:54

the the lorry or the truck was parked

00:08:54--> 00:08:57

there. And suddenly, you know, the hand brakes

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

just failed. And the and the lorry just

00:08:59--> 00:09:00

came rolling.

00:09:00--> 00:09:03

And oops, there was a accident, and there

00:09:03--> 00:09:05

was a casualty, and a life was lost.

00:09:05--> 00:09:06

Now who do you hold responsible

00:09:07--> 00:09:09

because it was parked correctly or whatever had

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

happened? I'm just giving a freak accident, a

00:09:10--> 00:09:13

freak. A boulder falls and that's the end

00:09:13--> 00:09:14

of them.

00:09:17--> 00:09:17

In

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

the concluding verses

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

of of Surah Al Hajr.

00:09:23--> 00:09:23

Allah

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

said and we had sufficed for you against

00:09:26--> 00:09:29

those who were blasphemous against you. In

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

in the name of these 5 disbelievers are

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

mentioned.

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

One suffered a boil under his armpit which

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

became fatal and claimed his life. The other

00:09:36--> 00:09:39

one, was walking, and he stumbled over something,

00:09:39--> 00:09:41

and it became fatal, and he claimed his

00:09:41--> 00:09:43

life. A third one vomited something, and that

00:09:43--> 00:09:46

became fatal. You know, like, completely freak and

00:09:46--> 00:09:47

that was the end of it.

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

They plotted.

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

We had our plan in place.

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

And they had no idea. They had no

00:09:57--> 00:09:57

idea.

00:10:02--> 00:10:05

So look, reflect, pause, ponder and introspect.

00:10:05--> 00:10:06

What was the outcome?

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

What was the outcome of their plan? It

00:10:13--> 00:10:14

destroyed them.

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

The one who plots an evil,

00:10:20--> 00:10:23

it envelopes the plotter himself.

00:10:23--> 00:10:25

The Arabic proverb is

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

The one who digs a hole for his

00:10:31--> 00:10:34

brother, the chances are he'll fall in it

00:10:34--> 00:10:34

first.

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

Yes.

00:10:36--> 00:10:38

The one who digs a hole. Remember that,

00:10:38--> 00:10:40

my brother, and remember that, my sister.

00:10:40--> 00:10:43

Don't put a thorn in someone's path. Don't

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

put a glass in someone's path. Don't let

00:10:45--> 00:10:46

someone stumble.

00:10:47--> 00:10:48

Islam teaches

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

us that we must remove obstacles from a

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

path.

00:10:55--> 00:10:56

Sahaba was sitting and Nabi

00:10:57--> 00:10:58

said don't sit on the pathway.

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

So they said

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

of Allah we do sit here and we

00:11:02--> 00:11:04

just you know have some casual discussions.

00:11:05--> 00:11:06

He said, for in abaytum illatareek,

00:11:07--> 00:11:09

if you are insisting to sit in this

00:11:09--> 00:11:12

way here, then make sure you discharge the

00:11:12--> 00:11:13

obligations of the pathway.

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

La ilaha

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

illallah.

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

Did you hear that, my brother? Did you

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

get that, my sister? The richness of our

00:11:19--> 00:11:23

deen? Discharge the obligations of the road. What

00:11:23--> 00:11:23

is it?

00:11:25--> 00:11:26

Lower your gaze.

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

Move an obstacle from the road.

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

Initiate a greeting and respond to a greeting.

00:11:32--> 00:11:34

There are rights to the pathway.

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

So Islam teaches us

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

to move

00:11:38--> 00:11:38

an

00:11:39--> 00:11:40

obstacle from the path.

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

How would it be correct then for us

00:11:43--> 00:11:44

to become an obstacle?

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

The one who plots evil, it will come

00:11:50--> 00:11:52

back. It might not happen immediately.

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

You try to deny someone a job. You

00:11:55--> 00:11:57

try to deny someone a good proposal. You

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

try to put a blockage for someone. What

00:11:59--> 00:12:01

is something that is merited and it's it's

00:12:01--> 00:12:03

it's structured and you're saving someone because you

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

know the person has a history. No. Listen.

00:12:05--> 00:12:08

Don't do dealings with him. I've burnt my

00:12:08--> 00:12:11

fingers. That's separate. That's important. That's transparency. And

00:12:11--> 00:12:13

that doesn't fall under the chapter of of

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

ghiba, the olam I have written this here.

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

But what is you just been nasty and

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

malicious and obnoxious?

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

We destroyed them. And

00:12:25--> 00:12:28

his entire nation. So these 9 individuals were

00:12:28--> 00:12:30

gripped by the boulder, and the remaining part

00:12:30--> 00:12:32

of the nation were destroyed by

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

They were gripped by

00:12:40--> 00:12:43

two forms of torment the Quran speaks. 1

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

is for

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

a quake, a tremor,

00:12:49--> 00:12:51

that that that, you know, shook the the

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

the land in which they were, and a

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

scream and a cry, an awful cry from

00:12:55--> 00:12:58

an angel, which was so loud and intense

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

that their hearts burst.

00:13:00--> 00:13:02

So it was a, you know, you they

00:13:02--> 00:13:04

were struck on both sides. You you you're

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

driving.

00:13:05--> 00:13:06

It's raining buckets,

00:13:06--> 00:13:09

right? It's hailing, and then there's a major

00:13:09--> 00:13:11

accident on the road. Now can you imagine

00:13:11--> 00:13:14

the delay? There's a major accident and there's

00:13:14--> 00:13:17

rain. Either of the 2 would be adequate

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

to to to to create a delay. And

00:13:19--> 00:13:21

when it's both, what would happen? So there's

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

a tremor, there's a earthquake, and then there's

00:13:23--> 00:13:27

this, awful cry and and loud cry and

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

and and scream, which results in in in

00:13:29--> 00:13:30

so,

00:13:30--> 00:13:32

you know, the sound is so loud,

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

that it just burst their hearts and they

00:13:36--> 00:13:37

all pass on.

00:13:44--> 00:13:46

Then passes by as he leaves from there,

00:13:46--> 00:13:47

according to Jalalain,

00:13:47--> 00:13:49

that those that were rescued with him, the

00:13:49--> 00:13:50

believers were 4,000.

00:13:52--> 00:13:55

According to Jalalain, that salih alayhi salaam and

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

his believers comprised of 4,000.

00:13:57--> 00:13:59

So as he's leaving, he then looks at

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

his people and he says,

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

Oh my people. He's looking. He's walking past.

00:14:09--> 00:14:11

He's he's he's looking at the corpse and

00:14:11--> 00:14:13

saying, you know, but I advised you, but

00:14:13--> 00:14:16

you refuse to accept advice. You refuse to

00:14:16--> 00:14:18

advise accept advice. Allah speaks about Shoaib alaihis

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

salam

00:14:35--> 00:14:38

After his nation was destroyed, he passed by

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

the body and the corpse and he said,

00:14:40--> 00:14:42

oh, but I advised you.

00:14:42--> 00:14:44

How do I lament the faith of people

00:14:44--> 00:14:47

who refuse to believe? You know, sometimes you're

00:14:47--> 00:14:49

telling your son something, he doesn't listen and

00:14:49--> 00:14:50

then there's consequences.

00:14:51--> 00:14:54

He he he he hurt himself badly. He's

00:14:54--> 00:14:56

now lying on the hospital bed. He's unconscious

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

and you sit in there and you are

00:14:58--> 00:15:01

tearing over his pain. You are gently passing

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

your hand over and then you are talking

00:15:03--> 00:15:05

to him, but I told you my love.

00:15:05--> 00:15:07

I told you my son. I warned you

00:15:07--> 00:15:10

so much. And remember, our father's affection is

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

so much. Nabi alayhi salatu wa salam.

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

Khaliib Badar Badar is actually the name of

00:15:14--> 00:15:16

a well. Badar is the name of a

00:15:16--> 00:15:18

well. Right? The bodies of the disbelievers were

00:15:18--> 00:15:20

dropped into the well.

00:15:21--> 00:15:23

And then Nabi salallahu alaihi wasallam came to

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

them and said, oh, so and so. Oh,

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

so and so. So now are you convinced

00:15:27--> 00:15:28

what I told you?

00:15:29--> 00:15:31

Did you realize I was speaking the truth?

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

And the sahaba said only be of Allah

00:15:35--> 00:15:38

are they are they understanding what you're saying?

00:15:38--> 00:15:40

Nabi salallahu alaihi wa sallam said by Allah

00:15:40--> 00:15:41

they are listening more than you. The only

00:15:41--> 00:15:42

thing is they cannot reply.

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

Right?

00:15:44--> 00:15:46

Sima'al Mota is the whole academic discussion where

00:15:46--> 00:15:48

the dead can hear, etcetera.

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

So they were destroyed by the boulder, the

00:15:53--> 00:15:55

rest of the nation as I explained by

00:15:55--> 00:15:58

the tremor and of course the awful cry.

00:16:04--> 00:16:08

You're their homes and their dwellings and their

00:16:08--> 00:16:09

ruins just lie.

00:16:11--> 00:16:13

Because of their wrongdoing and their evil.

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

In that day is a sign.

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

As mentioned in Jalalayin. For people who know,

00:16:21--> 00:16:23

understand, and comprehend our might, our power, and

00:16:23--> 00:16:26

our authority. So we give grace, we give

00:16:26--> 00:16:28

respite, and then when we seize and we

00:16:28--> 00:16:31

strike, then there is no escaping from the

00:16:31--> 00:16:32

grip of Allah

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

wa'anjainal ladheenaamanu

00:16:35--> 00:16:37

wakanu yat taqoon. And of course we gave

00:16:37--> 00:16:39

deliverance to the believers,

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

and those who brought iman. And as I

00:16:41--> 00:16:44

mentioned there were 4,000 in number. Waqanu yat

00:16:44--> 00:16:45

taqoon.

00:16:47--> 00:16:49

Now, the ruins of Thamud

00:16:50--> 00:16:50

was on,

00:16:51--> 00:16:52

the travel journey

00:16:53--> 00:16:54

of the people of Makkah. When they used

00:16:54--> 00:16:56

to travel from Makkah and they used to

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

go to

00:16:58--> 00:17:00

Syria which was the economic hub, they used

00:17:00--> 00:17:03

to pass by these dwellings and these, locations,

00:17:04--> 00:17:06

and hence the hadith of Bukhari, the prophet

00:17:06--> 00:17:07

said,

00:17:12--> 00:17:14

when you pass by when you pass by,

00:17:15--> 00:17:18

the dwellings of people who have oppressed themselves

00:17:18--> 00:17:19

then,

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

do so in a manner that you are

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

crying.

00:17:29--> 00:17:31

Don't enter the dwellings and the homes and

00:17:31--> 00:17:32

the locations

00:17:32--> 00:17:35

and cities of people who disobeyed Allah and

00:17:35--> 00:17:37

Allah destroyed them but that you tear.

00:17:39--> 00:17:42

Least you are struck by that which struck

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

them.

00:17:43--> 00:17:45

And Allah had had alerted them that this

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

is on your journey

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

daily.

00:17:51--> 00:17:52

Oh, you, the people of Mecca. Don't be

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

proud and arrogant. Look at those before you

00:17:55--> 00:17:57

who are proud and arrogant. We wipe them

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

out.

00:17:57--> 00:18:00

Sometimes in our own neighborhood, you've seen a

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

person who thought he had so much, then

00:18:02--> 00:18:04

he just went down, then his life went,

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

then his whole estate was wiped out, then

00:18:06--> 00:18:08

it was a complete change of people moving

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

into that place. You see in a whole

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

like a era turn, he was here. It

00:18:12--> 00:18:16

was a house of glory, prosperity, glamour. Everything

00:18:16--> 00:18:17

would happen. There would be like a fleet

00:18:17--> 00:18:19

of cars here. There would be a helipad

00:18:19--> 00:18:22

here, a chopper landing, ministers wow. Wow. And

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

next best thing, there was a hearse there.

00:18:28--> 00:18:31

Every home, regardless of how prolonged its prosperity

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

is, one day sadness will grip it and

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

seize it.

00:18:36--> 00:18:39

A believer is one who looks around and

00:18:39--> 00:18:40

heeds the warning.

00:18:44--> 00:18:47

Blessed indeed is he who takes a cue

00:18:47--> 00:18:49

of others.

00:18:47--> 00:18:49

of others.
