This is lesson number five in the explanation of the short Sutras of the Quran.
this is lesson number five. We're halfway halfway through there inshallah. Today Inshallah, by the permission of Allah, we ask Allah for his help and for support to guide our words. Today we'll be looking at sort of tea Aloha now that have sort of sorted Doha from the Tafseer type sera, sera de TCR, Karim Rahman bit of silica lemon Min Nan, but before we do that, Inshallah, we'll look at the study guide for Sora to Shara from the previous week. Question number one, what are some of the meanings of Allah providing Shara for the prophets of Allah asylums chest what is some of the meanings of Allah said well of Allah providing Shara for the prophecy some chest?
now I'm opening his chest to accept the revelation to giving Dawa to having good character to focusing on the hereafter, and also to accepting the decree of Allah subhanaw taala that Allah subhanaw taala guided him to those things and meaning again, the implication of that as what is that even for someone as wonderful, and as great as our Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he would not have been able to do what he did without a loss help. Everybody needs a loss upon patatas help. And that's the idea. Everyone need a loss needs a loss avanzadas help and that's why any one of the last suitors revealed to the Prophet salaam, either Jarrah, either Jaysh, nostril la he was fat,
Elijah and natural law he will affect when the help of a lot comes and the victory end of the victory came the conquest of Mecca came after what after the help of Allah came with the help of Allah. If Allah did not help him his dollar would not have moved forward. And so it's important to remember that no matter how much Allah has blessed us with natural goodness that He created us with how good our character is, how intelligent we are, how financially savvy we are, none of that makes a difference if Allah subhanaw taala does not help us. Number two, what is the meaning of wizard? What is wizard?
Wizard is huge sins heavy sins burdensome sins? And what explanation does certain FET chapter number 48 verse to give for the removal of the wisdom of the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam
that Allah subhanaw taala did what for him?
Allah forgives those who follow the messenger but even the messenger himself as Allah mentions in certain effects, the fear of luck Allahumma taka demean them become at AHA so that Allah may forgive those sins that have already proceeded and any sins that come thereafter. And so Allah removing the wisdom of the promise of Islam is for him to forgive him that he forgave him his previous sins, as well as any sins to come. And that is going to be Subhanallah in the hadith of Shiva.
that is going to be the point by which the prophet to let us know how important forgiveness is. That's going to be the point by which the prophets have a set of claims, or is directed to people seeking Chifa for him, you know, when people are standing waiting for the judgment to begin, they're going to go to the people are going to go to New York to intercede with Allah, for the judgment to begin, he's going to give his excuse, they're going to go to Ebrahim Alehissalaam, they're going to go to Musa Musa alayhis salam, they're going to go to isa Alayhi Salam. And when they go to Risa, the Hadith mentions, they're not going to mention that he committed any mistake, all the other
prophets are going to mention what they believe were mistakes that they made, that took them away from being able to stand and ask Allah to start the judgment. They're going to go to Isa, and he said, there's no there's not going to be any shortcoming that's mentioned about him. But he is going to say, go to the one whom Allah has forgiven his previous and future since
he is going to direct them to the one who, what, who Allah said he forgave, all of them were forgiven.
But Allah subhanaw taala mentioned specifically about the promises that He forgave his sins and that is what is going to allow him to feel any the strength and the courage by the permission of Allah to stand in front of Allah and to ask to request to pray to Allah subhanaw taala to begin the judgment and so that is the point that Allah's forgiveness is a great is a great thing and it is what the prophecy is sort of is distinguished with. Number three, what are two examples that Imam acidity gives for how the vicar of the prophecy son was raised? Any What are instances where the vicar of the Prophet was raised and continues to be raised?
And Allah Subhana Allah praise Prophet Muhammad, so he praises the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he sent a lot upon him and the angels do as well. Also, we mentioned in the Avant that we say a shadow ley line Allah, a shadow under Muhammad Rasul Allah, and so his name is raised in that instance, as well. Also in the iqama. Also, when a person enters into Islam, he cannot enter into Islam without testifying that Muhammad Ali Salaam is the messenger of Allah.
Number four, what close relationship does Imam acidity explain between the difficult we experience and the relief that Allah intends for us? What is the relationship between the difficulty and the relief?
They come together. Whenever a difficulty comes, it comes with the ease already with it, we just have to work. We have to wait be patient for that ease to open itself up. The ease comes with the difficulty. There's no difficulty that Allah decrees for us except that there is relief that comes with it. We have to wait to see that relief.
And sometimes the relief, sometimes the relief we may not see in the form that we are expecting. Sometimes the relief is the removal of sins, that makes worship easier for us. And sometimes we're struggling religiously, and we get tested with something. And that test is a purification of sins. And so the relief comes when Allah makes worship easy for us, the things that we found difficulty doing and worshiping Allah, Allah makes those things easy. And that strengthening that that improvement of our worship strengthens our heart and helps us to be able to deal with the test that Allah gives us.
No, number five mentioned the Hadith that Imam acidity uses to show the relationship between the difficulty we experience and the relief that Allah intends for us. We said that he mentioned the hadith of even our bass, where he said at the end of the Hadith we're Anil Farage Malakar that the relief comes with the calamity. We're anomalously Yusra. And it with the difficulty comes the ease. Number six, what does Allah tell the prophets of Allah Salam tissue? Or she Excuse me? How does a lot tell the prophets I send them to show appreciation for the many blessings He has given him?
How does he tell them to show his show his gratitude
that when he's busy with the things he has to do that he want, that he tired himself out worshipping Allah, indeed the way that a person shows gratitude, the way he commands the prophecy is for them to show gratitude as to what is to worship Allah and Subhan Allah. That is how the Prophet saw the Sunnah showed his gratitude. When the promise listen would get up and pray at night until his feet swole he was asked, Why do you do this? And your sins have already been forgiven? Why are you standing
up at night till your feet swell, praying and you already know that your situation is safe with Allah. Why do you do this to me? You should be done clause is over. You don't have to work anymore. Now you know you're going to Jenna. What did he say? Fly Kunal. I've done shikhara should I think we think for them.
And even if again you look we look at the series of the series of the those who were promised paradise, Abu Bakr and Omar Osman Ali and the others. He they didn't stop worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala because they were given glad tidings of paradise. They improved and strove to be better. And they didn't like to be praised in their faces. They continue to strive for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. And so to show appreciation, what did he do? He continued to worship Allah and strove harder.
What does Imam acidity mentioned as the meaning of fun sub
says for either for fun so what is fun sub mean?
Fun sub means to tire yourself out. Allah mentions in citizen hatia That those who disbelieve Amina tune now Seba, they're going to be working and tired, weary worn out. No sub is any fatigue. And so, phone sub means to stand up and worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and to tire yourself out worshiping Allah.
What is the implied opposite that he says we should stay away from if we're supposed to busy ourselves, worshipping Allah subhanaw taala entire ourselves out worshiping Allah, then what should we stay away from?
We should stay away from playing around and wasting our time. And those things that keep us away from remembering Allah. We should stay away from playing around, wasting our time, and doing those things that keep us from remembering Allah. And I think it's important, again, to put all of that in context and perspective. Number one, we have to realize that as human beings, we were created to do what?
To worship Allah. What does it mean to worship Allah, it means to prefer what Allah wants us to do over what we want to do.
That means when Allah tells us to do something, we do it in spite of how we feel.
And it's recognizing that because Allah has been good to us, we owe him
because Allah has been good to us, we owe him. And that's not a foreign concept. When someone is good to us, then we feel indebted to them. When someone is good to us, we feel like we owe them. Allah has been good to us. And so we owe him worship. Our parents are good to us. And so we owe them our obedience, we owe them that we comply with what they say, without making it seem like it's a big deal. And without complaining about it. And sometimes our parents remind us, do you know what I do for you? Don't you? Do I do this? Don't you know I do that.
In Why are you raising your voice? Why are you paying I'm not asking you to do a whole lot.
And so Allah subhanaw taala doesn't ask us to do a whole lot. That's number one. Number one, we recognize that we have a debt to repay.
And again, put that in perspective as it relates to the dunya.
If a person has a nice paying job and is comfortable, but he has debt, it's very difficult to enjoy a good time and to spend money freely. And you know that you are in debt. And you owe 50,000 $100,000 to an institution, it's very difficult to be comfortable.
You have another 50,000 or $100,000 to pay on a house it's very difficult to have some sense of freedom and some comfort and you know you have a debt to pay off. And so a person may What do overtime work extra why so I can get this debt paid off and I can relax.
We have a debt with Allah subhanaw taala that we have to pay off.
And not only do we have a debt that we have to pay off, we continue to take out on the debt we continue to ask him it's not like we stopped at some moment and now we're just working on any what's there. No, we continue to ask him daily.
And so we have a debt to pay with Allah subhanaw taala
number two, we can't pay it back.
Because he's been too good to us. And even what we paid back, is because
He gave us the success to pay him back
in you take out a loan, and then the bank that you borrow from is giving you money to pay off the loan.
That's the idea. Whatever good we do, Allah blessed us to do the good in the first place. And so what we owe him for helping us
to do good, and to do what he says.
And then if Allah is blessing us to understand that, then we have to be concerned with what level? Are we trying to reach? Any do we want? The lowest level of general? Or do we want higher levels? Do we want the best, I mean, we're not satisfied in the world with having to having simple things.
A simple car may not cost a whole lot. But we want a nice car, not what gets us by not what gets us from point A to point B, we want something nice. And when we eat, it doesn't take delicious food, to fill our bellies and to nourish us. It doesn't have to taste good and, and be wonderful for it to be satiating and for it to be nourishing. But we want the food to taste good. And we want to be able to buy nice things.
And when we purchase a house anyway, we don't need all types of comfort to lay our head down at night and sleep.
But we want something nice. And so that same concept has to go with the hereafter uni, we want bare minimum for the hereafter. Because we don't know what the hereafter looks like.
We want to we want the niceness of the Dounia even though we're going to leave it and we don't know when we're going to leave it. We don't know how long we're going to have it in your person might buy a car, and he has it for a week and then a lot calls him back. Got to drive it for a week. All that work for a week or for driving.
But the year after is going to be forever. And these are the realities we have to remind ourselves off. And so we're trying to what trying to increase our levels, they're probably set them set for either the ultimate Law Office illegal fair dose, if you ask Allah then ask him for alpha dose, don't ask him for the bare minimum of gentlemen, as long as you're dealing with one who is kind and generous and giving them what he asked for the best. But it's not enough just to ask for it you have to what you have to work for. Because working for it shows that you really want it.
Working shows that you want it. It's one thing to say I want this, I want that I want this. Yeah, I want a really nice car. Okay, work for it, you get it.
Now, that's okay.
We want if it doesn't go to work for it.
And so what we need to understand is that there's too much that we have to work for to have time to play
too much. We have this debt to pay off. We have gratitude to show and we're trying to raise our lungs. Those things keep us what busy from having time to play. And when I say having time to play, that doesn't mean that we don't have fun and a good time and don't enjoy ourselves with our family.
But we learn to do those things with intent and purpose. We relax, because we know we have to get back to work. And the relaxation is to help us in our work. We spend a good time with our children, because we want to strengthen that relationship with them so that we can have fluence influence over their lives and they don't you doesn't.
We're hoping that the quality time we spend with our family
is what helps us to have a strong relationship with them. And then when we encourage them to do good, they want to do good
because they love us and they know that we want good for them. We want to show them a good time. So we're trying to get close to Allah by being kind to our families. We show a good time to our wives. Because we know that that makes Allah happy.
Not just because we're trying to relax problems instead of sending a hadith of Saudi Arabia will cause will end tuneful NEFA cotton turvy be what Allah Illa Jota la had turned my attention Hello Fifi erotic.
You will never spend any money.
You will never spend any money trying to seek Allah's pleasure
except that you will be rewarded for it. Even the food you put in your wife's mouth. So it's about being intentional about what we do
when we play it's not because we don't have anything else to do is not because we're trying to kill time.
Something's gonna kill time for us. We don't have to kill it.
Something's gonna kill time.
Don't worry ism is Allah has already designated death to do that.
We need to be making use of our time in a good way. And that's either by benefiting ourselves or others religiously, or benefiting ourselves and others in the deen and in the dunya.
So a person any a young man wants to be a husband wants to be a father wants to start a family. Do you know the regulations of Islam? As it relates to being a husband? Do you know the regulations of Islam as it relates to being a father, a parent?
Do you have the Islamic knowledge where you're comfortable being able to teach your family?
Do you know the icon of the morning and the evening
by which to seek Allah's help in being able to strive for law sake,
and earn a living
is too much for us to learn too much that we need individually and as a community to have time to play?
Even when we look at our professions, how are you going to use that to benefit the Muslims? Any whatever we learn how to do as a profession as a job, there should be some way we're thinking about how can I get good deeds with Allah? How can I get close to Allah with what he's blessed me to learn how to do?
We should be looking at that. And that should be what we're telling our children, any a person may be studying for his test for his homework, and he's getting a good deed. Why? Because he's planning on using what he's learning to be able to not ask people and he's planning to use this to what to benefit the Muslims. And so doing homework becomes worship because it's being done with an intention.
And the time that he uses off to play and to relax can become worship why because he's using it to relax to get back to work. But we don't have time just to be playing just to be scrolling and flipping through social media like that. Trying to see what other people are saying and other people to do and other people that live in and we're watching them live and we call that life
people who are really not important
they really not important any this actor this actress this athlete in the at the end of the day, he No offense, but usually usually these people they're not the best people.
Usually then any they're not like the best of society and what they earn and what they do, they don't use to benefit other people.
So who are they that we should be worrying about how they live? In what do we know about the companions of the Prophet salallahu Salam.
And in the hadith of Annecy, mediamatic radiallahu anhu. He explained to us why it's important to learn about the lives of the prophesy some and his companions.
He said a man came to the province of Islam and he said mateesah When is the Day of Judgment going to be in the province of Islam said asked him mother started that Tila what have you prepared for it?
You don't ask me about what is going to come when it comes gonna come What have you prepared for it? He said Mr. Added to Kabira Shay. And I haven't prepared much in any way Bala Hora Sula except that I love Allah and His messenger.
Allah such a cool new man, man that you will be with who you love. And it's been a Malik says we weren't happier on any other day. Then when we heard the promises that I'm say, a person will be with whom he loves. And then Alison Malik himself said, and I swear that I love the profits of myself. And I love Abu Bakr. I love Omar and I ask Allah to please me with them. Even though my actions don't compare to theirs.
He loved the profits of the salon, and he loved aboubaker. And he loved Mr. radiola, and home. And he hoped that based upon that love that Allah would do what, raise his levels. Because the process that I'm said a person will be with whom he loves.
And so a person has to look at who he loves.
And you want to know how we know what we love.
It's where we spend our time and our money.
Where we spend our time and our money.
Whatever we spend our time doing most, it's what we love. We spend our time on social media a lot because we love ourselves.
We love ourselves. We want to see how many likes and comments and feedback that we have from people
now, and we spend our money on things that make people like us, because we love ourselves. We spend our money on things, tickets to events, because those are the things that we love.
So we have to be careful that we have to just make sure that we are using our time
and we have to take ourselves too.
count, no, we don't have time to waste we don't have time to play. And when we play we play with intention we play because there's a purpose behind that playing. And other than that and we are working to
make ourselves better and make the community better
and get closer to Allah subhanaw taala. No.
by So looking now in sha Allah as Surah T Aloha
The first thing to mention mashallah one of the one of the brothers who attends the class mashallah, he he mentioned it earlier in the week. And he mentioned, he said, It seems like sort of T Shara and sort of t loha. Seems like they are related to one another because they both talk about blessings. And there are some of the scholars amongst them. Powerwalls, who's from the scholars of Yemen, who mentioned he was from the students of bass, where he mentioned that any these two sources were one surah it's sort of Doha, and sort of tee shot were one surah. And it wasn't a prevalent statement, but in a there was a scholar that said that the two of them were one sorta and again,
Thomas was a student of Ebenezer Baptist, and even a bass the prophecies and prayed for him to teach him the the meanings of the Quran. So it's not again, it's not a far fetched statement, and a person that looks at the to sort of see that they are very closely related.
If I were to offer my own input, any the relationship between them seems to be very similar to the relationship between sort of tea and follow up and sort of finesse in either both ways of seeking refuge, but they're seeking refuge any sorts of fill up, it's about seeking refuge from the harm of the harm in general and harming the dunya. Whereas sort of T Ness seems to be focusing more on harming the deen and protecting one's heart. And so Suniti Doha looks at the blessings of Allah subhanho wa taala. This is some of these kinds of tips you have mentioned. They look look at the blessings of Allah before he became a Prophet
the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam before he became a prophet. And then Surah T sharp looks at the blessings on the prophecy. So after he became a prophet, any Allah opened his chest to receiving more revelation and to improving himself and becoming better in what he is. And he also forgave him his sins. And he raised his mentioned so Allah Allah Salam, where as soon as he Doha talks about happened before he became a prophet or when he first became a prophet.
No, and so Allah subhanaw taala begins by saying what Doha will lelee either sagia Imam acidity he says up sama to Allah, Bihari even tashera Leah who he says Allah subhanho wa Taala swears by the day when it's light spreads, any aloha is the time when the light it spreads in. It's after the sun has risen, then that time is of the high all the way until just before so lots of book. No, so he swears by a Buddha. And then he says we'll be late and he swears by the night he that said yeah, he says what it Lammott won't matter who any and when it's darkness becomes extremely dark. Uni in the Hemet won't matter who means that it's darkness and he really sets in.
So he swears by the day when it's light sets in. And by the darkness when that when the or by the night when its darkness sets in. And as we mentioned previously, the scholars mentioned that there is a connection or even will came in particular mentions as a connection between what's being sworn by and what's being sworn about. Imam acidity says he swears by these things by the daytime and when it's light spreads, and by the nighttime and when it's darkness spreads. Allah era Tina Ilahi Bureau SUTA he SallAllahu sallam, he swears by these things regarding the attention and care and concern that he gives for His Prophet sallallahu sallam.
He is swearing by the daytime when it's light spreads and by the nighttime when it's darkness spreads. About what about the fact that he has given care and concern and attention to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and Bill Manasseh right yeah, and he just just to in mentioning because the Imam acidity doesn't mention this, but also in the sahih The reason why this sutra was revealed the prominently Salam, he there were a few days where he did not receive revelation. And so some of the kuffaar amongst them mentioned in particular was OOM Jamil who was the wife of Ebola hub. She came to
to him and she said, I see that your shaytaan has left you, I see that your shaytaan has left you and he's not You're not You're not talking about what's been revealed to you for a couple of days. So whatever was coming to you, is gone from you now. And so when the promise is and I'm hurt that it made him sad, it made him sad. Me and some other people from the Quran said that I see that you've made your shape on angry you've made your shaytaan angry. And so Allah subhana wa Tada revealed the surah what the hell I swear by the daytime when the light spreads in it, what will be our lately it has said Yeah, and by the night when it's darkness spreads, that your Lord My what dakara book that
your Lord has not left you
know, and so from the connections that have been made between what's being sworn by and what's being sworn about. Some of the scholars have mentioned that what it indicates is that Allah no matter any, in the dark moments, and in the light moments, day and night, Allah subhanaw taala is with you watching you He has not left you any whether it's daytime or nighttime all the time. Allah subhanaw taala is with you, looking after you, caring for you concerned about your situation.
Now and some of the other scholars have mentioned that any Allah mentions the Loja any
before he mentions the night showing that the light is coming after the darkness after the difficult times after what has made you sad. A law is going to bring light any back to your heart, whatever darkness or difficulty you're experiencing, that Allah is going to bring light from that the revelation that is mystery, that dark moment where you are not receiving revelation, there is revelation coming after that that will bring life to light excuse me, to your heart. So after that dark period, the light is the light of revelation is coming back to your heart. That's what different scholars have mentioned as the relationship between what's being sworn about and what's
being what's being sworn by and what's being sworn about. Imam acidity He says,
For Allah ma what corrupt book, he says ma Torah, caca Mundo attain abic that your Lord has not left you from the moment that he's given attention to you. He says wala Melaka Moon blue, Rebecca rock, and he has not left you, he has not stopped giving attention to you once he has cared for you and looked after you. Bell lamea sell your a beaker acmella tarbiyah, Tin acmella tarbiyah 10 While your Leka dodgy 10 Bad Adonijah he said he has continued to look after you to care for you, to guide you. In the best way, raising your level step after step. He's continued to look after you and to raise your level and to take care of you step after step. Again, we mentioned what was the reason why this
pseudo was revealed. And I think it's worth noting
that there seem to be
there seem to be similarities between this surah and Surah T and Fajr. And we'll look at that inshallah a little bit later. But one point worth noting
when the revelation ceased for a moment, the disbelievers took that as an indication that
the promise a system has met messed up his relationship with Allah subhanaw taala.
And in Surah, T al Fajr. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that the way that the kuffaar look at life is based upon what happens to them in the dunya.
That people it's natural, if people don't know who Allah is, that they judge their relationship with Allah based upon what, what happens in the dunya. And so when times are good, then they say what? My Lord loves me. And when times are difficult, they think that Allah doesn't care about them anymore. And Allah says, killer, no, that's not the way it works.
It's not that if you're rich and comfortable and wealthy and you got a job and everything is fine, and nobody sick, that Allah loves you. If you get tested in those things, and it means a lot doesn't love you. No, that's not the way a lot works. Actually, the more Allah loves a person than the more he went, he tests them to strengthen their hearts. And we ask Allah for Latvia, don't ever ask a lot of tests you.
You ask a lot to save you from the test, we ask a lot of savings from being tested. Because we don't know how we're going to react. We don't know how we're going to deal with it. But when He tests us, and if He tests us, then we're what we're patient.
And if a person looks at the life of the promises, that he sees what the deposit said was tested over and over again in so many different ways.
And the problem is Islam was the most beloved person to Allah subhanaw taala. And so being tested in the dunya is not an indication of Allah's love. But if a person doesn't know Allah, then that's how they're going to think that Allah operates because that's how
people operate. When we don't know Allah, then we're going to compare a lot to people. And that's a problem.
Because people are selfish in that way they give you when they love you, and they don't give when they don't love you, then we assume when we don't have revelation, that that's how Allah is.
Still how Allah is
Allah gives to those who he loves, and those whom he doesn't love as a test. If Allah if this dunya meant anything to Allah, the disbeliever would not breathe.
If this world meant anything to Allah, the disbeliever would not breathe air.
So the fact that disbelievers are wealthy,
are comfortable in this dunya that they have is an indication that this Dounia does not mean much in as Allah mentions in suits and Fajr. And I advise you to go back and read it. Allah mentions that whatever he gives, or he withholds is a what is a test. That's all it is. What he get with gives and what he withholds is a test. That's all it is. And so we don't use what happens in this dunya as a measure of Allah's love. It's not that if we're struggling financially, Allah does, Allah doesn't love us. And then when we're financially comfortable, Allah loves us know, in the previous sword, we said what, with the difficulty already comes, the ease, it's a test.
With the difficulty comes the ease. And sometimes the comfort is really going to be the difficulty because that's what's going to be difficult later on. Any a person has to work, when Allah is good to them to be what to be grateful, and Allah is always good to us. We have to learn to be appreciative for the goodness because if we're not appreciative, then it's going to be it's going to be a source of regret. No. And so we don't use the Dunia to measure. We don't use the Dunia as a measure. But that's how the disbelievers look at things. He says. My what dakara Buka wa kala he says any woman Calaca ma palapa McCulloch Allah and Allah has not Pollock, meaning he has not hated
you, after loving you.
He has not hated you after loving you, because it's simply because the revelation has ceased. And even Roger in his in his explanation of the 40 Hadith, he mentions this surah and he mentions that that's what color is any How is color or tally? How is that different from other types of anger? He says that locally his elbow basil hub, there is anger after loving in you love and then after that love then you hate. That's what it means to Allah. So he says an imam acidity is hinting to that is alluding alluding to that here and his steps here. He says he has not hated you my Ababa, Moon goo hubback He is not hated you since he has loved you.
For in Nephele did the liloan Allah booty the de Yanni, he says because negating?
negating the opposite, or negating something affirms the opposite. Anyone Allah is saying he has not left you, that means that he's with you. And when he says he does not hate you, that means he loves you. Allah is affirming that he loves the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and that he's affirming that he's with him, that he's supporting him. How was he affirming that by negating the opposite by saying that he hasn't left him and that he hasn't He doesn't hate him is affirming that he's with him and that he loves him. He says for enough Nephele did delete on aulassa Booty lead to heat. He says because negating something is an affirmation of its opposite. When nephew love Leia Qunu met
Han Illa either talamona so brutal command, he says simply negating is not praiseworthy, simply saying I didn't do something. I don't hate you, or I haven't left you. That doesn't mean much unless we're affirming the opposite. Because in affirming the opposite. Any that is where that's what's praiseworthy. So saying that
Allah saying that he doesn't hate the promises and it doesn't mean it's not meaningful unless we're affirming that he loves the prophecy. And that's what he's telling him for. And negating that he's left him is affirming that he loves him. And that's why you find any
in the Quran.
Seldom if at all, does Allah ever say that Allah is just
seldom if at all in the Quran? Does Allah say Allah is idle? What does he say? In the Lucha now you have limb? Will I ugly? Maura Buka Allah doesn't oppress anyone in Allah Allah yummy with cholera. Allah doesn't oppress even the smallest amount. Why is he negating that he oppresses
to affirm his complete justice
and by negating, oppressing at all. That's stronger in affirming justice. Because if a person is fair, that doesn't mean that sometimes he doesn't slip and become unjust. In your person can be mostly just 98% of the time you can be just put in 2%. He's unjust. And so when Allah says Allah does not oppress even a little bit, Miss Oliver, even the smallest amount, what does that mean? That means Allah is just completely don't even miss understand. It does a little bit of injustice from Allah subhanho wa taala. Everything Allah does is fair, how does he affirm his complete faith fairness by negating any injustice.
And so through negation
is a more complete
affirmation through negation is a more complete affirmation. That's why part of our head is what?
La ilaha illa Allah, nothing deserves to be worshipped except Allah.
It's different than saying Allah deserves to be worshipped. Because you could be saying what Allah deserves to be worshipped and other things that deserve to be worshipped. But when you say La Ilaha nothing deserves to be worshipped. Illa Allah, then that negation makes the affirmation stronger. And so that's the principle that Imam acidity is mentioning here. Now and there's lots more examples that can go with that. But if you take that as a principle for reading the Quran and the Sunnah,
whenever you see Allah telling you not to do something
and telling other prophecies, I'm telling you not to do something and what does that mean?
Do the opposite.
Allah says in the Lucha in Allah, Allah you hibel Ha in in Allah doesn't like love those who deceive.
Then what does that mean? That means Allah loves those who are straight up.
He loves those who are who are who are you what you see is what you get.
And so when things are negated in the Sharia in the Sharia, then we're affirming the the opposite. Now you think that with Hadith think that with ayat, when we're negating something, then the opposite is being affirmed.
He says for Hadi he Hallo Rasul Allah is Allah, Allah, and Malia will have it on me this is the situation of the promises. So in the past, and in the present, that Allah was caring for him, and looking after him and did not leave him. And now that he's made him a messenger and sent him any to mankind, then he also has not left him and is not angry with him any when a person is hired, or any is credible May is right or often, when a person is not able to distinguish and discern and not able to make their own decisions. Allah looks after them. He even though they themselves don't have intent.
And so if Allah looks after us, when we can't do for ourselves, then when we can do for ourselves and we are obedient to Him, then wouldn't he look after us more?
He didn't when we if he looks after us when we don't do what he says because we can't, because we're not at the age to do that yet. If He cares for us, then
then would he not care for us when we are obedient to him?
No. And so he says, for how the hell Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam this is the condition of the messenger and Malviya what how that this is the way it was previously, before he became a prophet. And now that he is a prophet, that's the way it is. ECMO Howdy, ECMO Halon attempt Maha the most complete and perfect situation.
Mahabharata Allah healer who was Tim Roja, what are key two who feed Dr. Johnson commodity what the llama eat Tina Ilahi
loved by Allah and continuing continuing to raise level after level in
In terms of completeness, and Allah constantly looking after him and caring for him, and you look at the process at the beginning of his prophethood and you see him grow and develop
later on any throughout his prophethood in you see the problems that how Allah subhanaw taala blessed him to become better and to become better and to become more complete and more complete. Yet until Allah subhanaw taala himself testified that he that he had completed his message Allah Yama commands will accompany next calm today I have completed your your religion. What meme to La come near Mati And I perfected my favorite bond, you probably need to look at Islam Medina, and I'm pleased with Islam as your religion. Any this is is a praise of who
the Prophet Muhammad SAW Allah, how did Allah subhanaw taala complete the religion?
How do you complete the religion?
Do the prophets who conveyed the Quran,
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who taught how to worship the prophesy salah. And so the completion of the deen
is a testimony to the fact that the prophet is sort of convey the message that he was Abdullah he was older SallAllahu sallam. And so Allah subhanaw taala continued to take care of him until he completed until he completed in what Allah subhanaw taala wanted for him, and Allah never stopped looking after him.
And this any to a lesser degree. This is the situation of a believer.
This is the situation of a believer, a person enters into Islam. And if he's true in that Islam, Allah continues to look after him, and to cause him to grow until he becomes a different human being. Anyone a person accepted Islam. If a person accepted Islam five years ago, 10 years ago, the hope is he can look back and see himself as a better worshiper than he was 10 years ago. Yeah, there's still a struggle. But it wasn't like day one. When he first became a Muslim, he didn't know how to how to recite Fatiha. He didn't know how to pray.
It was difficult. He knew someone had to stand with him and teach him. And now
he's praying on his own. And now he's teaching his children and his family. Now maybe brothers and sisters are directing him or her. Here, this brother is going to show you how to pray, this sister is going to show you how to pray.
No doubt that's a better situation. Because now not only is he benefiting himself, but he's benefiting others.
So the situation of a believer gets what better and better, even with the tests.
Because with each test, the person learns what better patients better trust in Allah. Maybe the first time he didn't handle it well. But the second time he's patient, second time third time makes do a little bit more.
For time he's able to shut his mouth and not say anything is pleasing to Allah not complaining so much to be able to wait for the relief from Allah subhanaw taala. Allah causes a person if Allah blesses him to do what to grow and become better, as mentioned in the hadith of abbiati. So havy, CNN, a Rumi, where he mentioned that the Prophet said I'm said Isaiah Bentley Emeril movement in Amara who could the hype well, he said, Danika
amazing is the situation of a believer, his situation is always good. And that's only for a believer
in a saga to sobre Shekar
for Kana hydrilla. If good things happen to him, he's thankful. And that's better for him. When a Saba took Barah Sobor with Anika highroller, and if difficult times afflict him, he's patient, and that's best for him. So Allah is constantly causing the believer to work to become better and better to move higher and higher.
And that's the idea
that even a person's Ramadan's in what a person did in his first Ramadan, not the same as other Ramadan
in a person becomes a better worshiper with time, any Allah when a person says La unite Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah gives that individual certain care.
He becomes a different rub for that person.
Allah is a rug for everyone as it relates to the dunya he feeds and clothes and provides for everyone. But for the believer, Allah subhanaw taala is also a rub for his heart.
And He blesses him to learn more and to do better and to move things that he used to do and not care about. Now when he does them, he feels remorse in his heart. He recognizes that he has disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala, and he wants to be better
This is a raising of the level of an individual when he recognizes that his actions should be judged by the Quran and the Sunnah. And when he goes against what Allah subhanaw taala says, at least he feels some remorse in his heart. That is a raising of the level. Because the care for displays the lawn feels nothing about it. But the believers heart becomes more and more alive. If a person is struggling with something, if he continues to pray and ask Allah to guide his heart, then Allah will bless that person to leave to leave that thing that that is, that is a challenge for him. Now, until he interests him into his gender, without any sins, and only enjoying the bounties of Allah subhanaw
taala. He says, What am mahalo who Al Mustafa Bala As for his future condition, for color will akhira to hydro Lukka mineral Oola. He says the hereafter or what's later is better for you. Then what was first Yanni your later situation is going to be better than your initial situation. He says
I couldn't do harlot in mucho accurate in Mahalik. He says this is not limited to the Hereafter. This is for every situation in the province of someone's life. You need that every moment of his life. What happens later what happens next is going to be better than what happened before.
He says for in the heart of Favell Allhallows sevika Valhalla to Saba every situation from the prophets of Islam is only going to get better.
Every situation to the promises some is only going to get better. He says for LEM Yes l so Allah Allah Salam Yesod Fedora Jatin my Ali, he said he continued to move into higher levels were you making Allahu Allahu Dena who and Allah continue to give his his religion more firmness while you're in Surah who Allah that he and that he any strengthen him against his enemies when you said due to who and he reassured him and reaffirmed him via Hawala he and his situations, Hatha met Hatha Mata until he died, what God was so that you know, Harlan ma Wasilla, La Jolla, and overload with afternoon.
He said until he continued until he reached a level that those before him and those after him can never reach mineral football from his virtues women in him and from his blessings will Kurata Island and from happiness enjoy was rooted in happiness of heart and peace of mind. You need the province of Islam in all of his situations, ALLAH SubhanA wa jal has made him better. He's made him better than all the other prophets. Allah whom was salam, because he allowed his revelation to what to last. Allah has preserved his book, no other book has been preserved.
And he has allowed his sunnah SallAllahu wasallam to be preserved, that we know with certainty what the prophet Islam did, in every situation of his life, and that we have the ability to work to learn that we have the ability to know exactly how the Prophet is sort of worshipped. And that's another reason why we don't have time, why we don't have time to waste in play, because there's too many situations that we're dealing with off the cuff. Too many situations that we're dealing with and we don't know what to do in those situations. And we need to learn
you need to give an example.
There's a Hadith of the Prophet son
that he mentions that when a person eats food,
and after he eats food if he says
Alhamdulillah Hilary Armani Harada was attorney he min Heidi Howlin mini while our cover all praise to the one who fed me this and provided it for me without any strength or power of my own. If he says that after he eats, he gets his sins forgiven.
If you didn't know that hadith, that means we don't have time to play
any how many good deeds? How much forgiveness are we losing out on because of what we don't know? And we're not making time to know. And the same Hadith has been mentioned for putting on clothes. If a person puts on an article of clothing. And he says a humbly line that he can sell any habit habba was up and he he mean hidey hole in Mineola Kuwa all praise to the one who closed me in this and provided it for me
without any strength of my own or any power, then he gets his previous sins forgiven.
A person puts on his pants and says something that gets his sins forgiven and his shirt and says something and gets his sins forgiven and his jacket and says something to get a sense for given and his hat and says something to get his foot since since we given it didn't say once he gets dressed, he said if he puts on his clothing, and each of these has its own article of clothing.
And if we're looking at why would a person be forgiven for something like that, Allah forgives and blesses those who praise Him.
Because if a person praises Allah for what he gets, the net shows that he's what grateful. And Allah says in the Quran in surah, two Ibrahim with the advent rock boom, the insha khardungla is either Nicole And when your Lord proclaimed if you're grateful, I will do what I will increase you. And a person says that humbly law and sorts of fattier and if he left his home and came to the masjid and the man's Imam says a Hydel melody will be I lay him with a bar lien. If the person behind the imam in the masjid this is for Lila for the Masjid. If a person behind the Imam says I mean to what to Alhamdulillah what's going to happen?
Is previous sins get forgiven
and also in the masjid.
When the Imam raises up and says semi Allah holy men Hamidah if those behind him say, Rob banner, why laka hummed Allah and to you, oh our Lord, and to you as the praise what happens? He gets his Freezy with previous sins forgiven, this isn't Sahadi
is why we don't have time to play any how many opportunities are we losing, on getting our sins forgiven
on getting our sins forgiven?
Because we just don't know.
If no one's going to get to Jenna. Unless his sins are forgiven,
and everybody sins, everybody falls short. You know why?
Because we're not grateful enough for a lot of blessings.
That's that's the sin.
The sin is, the oppression of ourselves is that we are not thankful for the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala. And we can't be because we don't.
Because we don't know them all.
Because we don't know all the ways that Allah has blessed us.
And because the blessings of Allah are too many to count, then we can't appreciate them. Any appreciate, show gratitude to Allah for every breath that we take?
If you said Alhamdulillah every time you took a breath, then you couldn't do anything else.
If we say thank you to Allah and humbly lie, every time our heart beats, then we couldn't do anything else.
Which is why when we leave the bathroom, we say what? Goof Ronak? Why are you seeking forgiveness for leaving the bathroom? Is it because leaving the bath using the bathroom is a sin?
No, because we think can't think Allah enough for his blessings, the blessing of being able to get that poison out of your body.
And being able to chew it
and being able to swallow it. And for your body to be able to digest that food and then get rid of it. All those are different blessings that need to be what?
Appreciate it. Don't you as a parent, don't you as a friend, don't you as a teacher, don't you as an employee, you get paid to work, but you want to be
appreciated. Like Well, money isn't enough.
Money isn't enough. We get paid to work. But we want to be what appreciate it appreciated, recognized that I did a good job because everybody doesn't do a good job.
No, Allah could have left us to anyone to take care of us. But he didn't. He took care of us himself, not only in our Dounia but in our dean. He made sure that a man that a man that men would go hungry and leave their homes and struggle and be fought against why to make sure that you and I got revelation.
He made sure that people would have the heart to sacrifice for this Deen. Why? So that you and I now could worship in comfort.
Their promises him and his companions didn't pray and massage it like this
They didn't have air conditioning and heaters.
And they didn't eat nice meals all the time most of the time.
Why did they suffer like that? Allah gave them heart to do what? To transmit the deen.
And that's what we got to half. We got to look at that and be inspired. We got to have heart to pass this dino.
We got to have heart to work so that our children who come after us have any what they need to be able to keep pushing.
And so the point is what who did that for us, Allah, Allah put it in people's hearts like that Imam was Buhari. He put it in Imam Abu Hadi his heart to what to not just travel the land and take vacations to sit down and write Hadith after Hadith, after Hadith after Hadith to travel here and travel here to study why so that we can have hindsight because he's sitting on a bookshelf, looking at it.
Yeah, that's the reality.
So we have to be appreciative. And so we owe gratitude. And it's too much for us to what is too much for us to show.
So we need what, Allah's forgiveness, we need a last forgiveness and support Allah.
And perhaps we'll let in on this point. Yeah, we'll pick up where we left off. I'm not in a rush into Russia,
in Sahih Muslim.
And this is this is important for Dawa and it's important for us to understand, because
a lot of times this believers kuffaar They say they don't understand, they don't understand how Allah subhanaw taala could punish people when they're nice.
They don't say how Allah can punish people when they're nice people.
Ayesha as the prophesy salon, about one of her ancestors, his name was one of her forefathers. His name was Eben Judah. And
she said y'all rasool Allah, even Judah, and
he used to feed the poor, and he used to keep good family ties.
Healthy and fatter who Vatika yo Mel Tiama would that benefit him on the day of judgment? There probably is some said laugh. No.
In the who lemmya Coolio man minute down. He never said a day in his life. rugby field, Lisa theity Yama, Dean. He never said a day in his life. My Lord, forgive me my sins on the Day of Judgment.
No matter how nice you are.
You have not fulfilled Allah's right. That's the idea.
Allah has rights that deserve to be fulfilled.
And whoever strives to fulfill those rights, Allah will do what? Forgive them, and let them go. And whoever does not even acknowledge the right, any when a person says La Ilaha illa Allah, what did he do? Why does he deserve saying like Allahu Allah? Why does he deserve Jenna for that?
Because he acknowledged Allah has rights. He even if he falls short in fulfilling them.
The careful the disbeliever doesn't acknowledge. He doesn't say Allah, I recognize you have rights on falling short and fulfilling them.
He doesn't acknowledge Allah has it right at all. So because of that he deserves to be punished. We deserve to be punished too. Because even though we acknowledged the right we didn't fulfill it, but because we try to fulfill it that Allah does what
lets us go.
And this explains for us, the first Hadith in kitasato, read the hadith of more Ottoman Jebel where the Allahu Anhu where he was writing behind the prophecy sort of one day and the prophecy said, I'm saying Yama,
do you know the right of Allah on his sleeves, and the right of the slaves on Allah?
He said, Allahu wa rasuluh Allah. He said Allah and His Messenger know best and this hadith in Bukhari Muslim
he says, the right of Allah on the slaves
and yeah, I will do well I usually who we share is to worship Him and not commit shirk. That is Allah's what? His right. Well, how can it rebury Allah Allah and the right of the slave on Allah? Allah you I'm Reba mela you Shrek be Isha the right of the slave on a law is that Allah not punish him if he does not commit shirk
The rights of the slave is what? To not be punished. If he does not commit shirk meaning, if he does commit shirk, if he does not make the acknowledgement that Allah has rights that distinguish him from the creation, he deserves what to be punished, then the prophesy Some said that sorry, then what I've said, yo rasool Allah, if Allah bless you on this, should I not give glad tidings to the people, that they have this right on Allah, that Allah they have the right to Allah not punish them if they fulfill this, right. He said, lie to bedsheet, HuFa, yet Tikki loo, don't give them the glad tidings, because they're going to do what they're going to depend on the promise, and they're not
going to do any work.
You can depend on the promise and not do any work. And when they don't do the work, then they're not going to do what they're not going to fulfill the right to the best of their ability.
So that's the idea.
That's the idea. Allah has rights. And La ilaha illa. Allah is about fulfilling the right of Allah.
And everybody falls short in fulfilling that right? But the person who says La ilaha illa. And praise is what is acknowledging the right.
And is making the minimal effort to fulfill the right. The person who never says La ilaha illa. Allah is not what is not acknowledging that Allah has a right.
And because Allah has right is so great.
And the punishment is severe.
Because the laws right is so great. The punishment is severe federal crimes are different than state crimes, right? There's different different level, right? Why? Because a crime against the state is against any small entity. A federal crime is against the the entire government, they different levels. And so they have different sentencing standards.
And so Allah is this beyond federal, this is another level.
And so don't try to imagine just like you can't imagine the greatness of Allah's qualities, then we also cannot imagine the greatness of his rights.
And because of that, then we have to recognize that we fall short in recognizing the greatness of His punishment, and also the greatness of his reward.
No. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to strive to fulfill his rights, and that he blessed us to be better all the time, and that's from the dua of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam where he used to say no,
to do other promises, something that he used to say and this is you off anytime. Allahumma Absolutely, Dini, a lady who are Esma to me, Oh Allah rectify my Diem, which is what keeps my life together while sniffily doing Yeah, well, I rectify my dunya and Latifi Hama, ashy which is what any, it's where I have to live while slowly activity and rectify my hereafter and a tea lay Hammadi, which is where I have to return
