So say something in which a lot is coming down a lot. So sabe refers to a heavy rain. Because of the heavy rain, a lot of water comes down. So say you like a heavy rain, man, a summary from the sky. A summer is from the rule ever seen me? Well, Sumo and Sumo is height, summer sky. Why Some are called some app because it's high above us. And

00:01:14--> 00:01:57

remember that in the Arabic language the word summer is very comprehensive. It doesn't just refer to the blue sky that we see. Summer is anything that is above you, which is why it can even refer to the ceiling. Anything that is above you, it can even refer to the clouds it can even refer to the seven skies. So summer is a very comprehensive word. Obviously rain does not come down from the blue sky. Where does it come down from clouds so what is meant by the summer is clouds? So a heavy rain from the sky that's falling down from the sky and in this heavy rain? Alyssa spielautomaten in it is darknesses lumads florala Luma we have done this word earlier as well. And what are these darknesses

And you will never be able to do it. Then further

hegira stones. So stones are birdie bird a phobia whom their fingers a phobia is the plural of his bar.

about your pain will help at home. You can own yuckiness letters are basically the main letters.

00:03:43--> 00:03:53

Sorry, what is a saga saga is a thunderbolt. What is a thunderbolt lightning or you can say fire that falls down from the sky in a thunderstorm.

00:03:54--> 00:04:30

Lightning that falls down from the sky onto the earth in a storm and Sarika it is accompanied by a huge blast as well as very loud sound as well in the fire as well. So it causes fear and there was a terrible storm and she said the lightning fell literally two or three feet away from her on the ground. And soccer literally means to faint from there, you leave you show your disapproval. It doesn't mean again that you cut off from them you go visit them but every time they start saying something negative get up and big 98

00:04:31--> 00:04:40

and some scholars have said that these stones it refers to cube root it's a particular kind of stone which is known as Black sulfur and blacks they also have a right

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

anyway, we should end over here because there's a lot of discussion to do on this topic, but inshallah as we study the Quran, many things will come up superlative darkness, and in this storm is thunder and lightning. And with the thunder and lightning they're also thunderbolts falling to the ground.

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

The people who are in the storm, what do they do? They put their fingers into their ears out of fear of death. They don't want to die. So they put their fingers into their ears. But tell me something. If you put your fingers into your ears in a storm, is it going to save you from death, it's not going to save you from death. The maximum it will do is it will reduce the sound of the thunder, you will still hear the thunder, but the sound will be a bit less for you because you've plugged your ears. But will it save you from death? No. Will it save you from the Thunderbolts falling on to you know, if you want to save yourself? You better get out of there. You better go indoors, isn't it's

00:05:40--> 00:05:46

all this is just like a pigeon. Who went sees a predator? What does it do closes its eyes,

00:05:48--> 00:06:27

goes up its head and buries its head on its back. So that it cannot see the predator anymore. But is a pressure going to go away? Is it it's not going to go away. So it says though, out of fear, a person is just ignoring the reality. He knows that he's in danger. He knows he's in trouble. But he doesn't want to think about it. He ignores it covers it up. This is the hypocrite. He knows. When he cheats, he's going to get into trouble. When he lies. He's going to get into trouble. But what does he do? He pretends as if nothing is happening, pretends as if no one is going to call him to account.

00:06:29--> 00:07:06

It doesn't change the reality. Think about it. Whenever we're doing something wrong. What do we tell ourselves? It's okay. It's okay. No big deal. On the day of judgment, something's going to happen and I will be saved. Really? What guarantee Do you have, you don't have any guarantee. So closing your ears is not going to protect you from death. Similarly, ignoring the consequences of sins are not going to protect you from punishment. Turning a closed eye to the sins is not going to protect you from punishment. You have to face it, you have to face the reality live in reality, the hypocrite does not live in reality. So they put their fingers into their ears out of fear of death,

00:07:06--> 00:07:48

but unless as well Loma Hippo, McAfee Dean and Allah is Mohit, Mohit, on the electress. how well it happens to completely surround something completely surrounded and more he is one who surrounds so Allah completely surrounds Zoo bill Caffery. What does it mean by this that Allah surrounds them? in two ways, first of all, in knowledge that Allah knows the hypocrites very, very well. He knows exactly what they're doing exactly where they are, exactly what they're feeling, and they're thinking, he knows them in knowledge. He knows about their circumstances. He knows about their situations, he knows about the lies, he knows about their sins. And secondly, how in power that they

00:07:48--> 00:08:23

can never escape Allah. They can never escape the grasp of Allah subhanaw taala the punishment of Allah, think about it, anything and everything we do, does Allah know about it? Yes, he knows about it. If he wishes to inflict punishment on us because of that, can we escape it? Can we, we cannot. Allah challenges us in sort of a man that if you can try to get out of this somehow it will Oh, you cannot. If a person says I want to get out of this, I don't want to be present on the Day of Judgment. I'll just go to Mars and live there. Well, Mars is also a loss of habitat is property.

00:08:24--> 00:08:56

You cannot go anywhere you cannot escape. alohomora Pentonville Catherine. Now most panatela says yeah, cattle Baku yaka do from the latter's calf, well, the cardiaca do. Carioca do is when something almost happens. It hasn't actually happened. But it almost happens. It's at the verge of happening. So your capital berco what is bark, lightning? The lightning? Almost yada, yada. How Paul

00:08:57--> 00:09:32

happy for you is to snatch something away quickly. Like for example, you are standing outside with a packet of fries. And there comes a seagull and quickly snatches away two or three from your hand and flies away. You're like what just happened? This is what advice Okay, so what if I prefer to snatch something away quickly to take it and go away with it? So the lightning would almost snatch away a busara home their sights upside is the plural of bustle. Because the lightning is so sharp, it is so bright.

00:09:33--> 00:09:51

Just imagine if it's very dark and all of a sudden there's a flash of lightning for a split second and it goes away and then again a flash of lightning for a few seconds and it goes away. You know it hurts your eyes and you close your eyes because you don't want to get blind. So your castle baka jacoba sorrow home, cola.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

cola every time about about the same route as about as good broadwell Hamza, sir.

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

Every time this lightning illuminated law home for them, meaning every time there is a flash of lightning, and whenever there's a flash of lightning, everything becomes visible. You may see that in the darkness of the night Even if there is a storm and there's lightning, you can see the trees, you can see the buildings. You can see the street, you can even see your hands. So every time there's a flash of lightning and the surroundings are illuminated, what do these people do? Michelle Michelle from Little gutters named Shinya mushiya which means to walk. So when there's lightning, even for a few seconds, even for a few moments, they walk in it, fi in it, what either and when

00:10:40--> 00:11:09

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, same route as lumads La Land me as Rama it became dark meaning when there is no more lightning when there is no more flash of lightning than what do they do? What either of Rama la you know, convolutional neural networks have well mean comma Yakumo to stand. So whenever there's lightning, things are clear, things are visible. What do they do? They walk, and as soon as it's dark, they just stand still.

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

When there's light, they walk, when there's darkness, they stand still. Allah says hello sha Allah who and if Allah wills shala from the reflectors, sheen yeah Hamza Hello sha Allah Who? leather herba surely he could have taken away the summary him they're hearing what Allah saw to him and also their sight. A law could have taken away their hearing and their sights. How, even without this thunder in the previous ayah. What do we learn that out of the loud sound? What do the hypocrites do? they close their ears because the sound is so strong. They cannot bear it. In this site. What do we see that the lightning is so bright, that it could blind them? So whenever there's light, they

00:11:55--> 00:12:23

walk, and whenever it's darkness, they just stop. They don't move then one ayah talks about the sound and the second it talks about the light. The sound could make them deaf, the light could make them blind. Allah says he can make them deaf and blind even without the storm. Even without the thunder and the lightning. wallow shout Allahu La Habra be summary him what other sorry, him, he could make them deaf and dumb, even without the storm.

00:12:24--> 00:13:13

In the law, or the coalition party, indeed a law is over all things capable are different letters of the law to draw his ability to do something, buddy, he is able to everything anything that he wants to do. What does this example mean? This example is talking about another group of hypocrites. And who are these hypocrites? They are those who never actually believed. The first example is talking about who those who did believe initially, but then their Eman left them they became hypocrites. This is talking about those who professed faith, but they never ever had a man in their hearts. The first group they had in mind for some time, at least these people, they never ever accept the man in

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

their hearts. They were always disbelievers in their hearts, because lssbb is a little mad and they were always in darkness. They were always in darkness. And the reason why they accepted Islam on the outward was out of fear, fear of what? The solaric fear of what the darkness that because of the lightning, they put their fingers into their ears, because of the darkness, they just stood still. So in other words, they accepted Islam because of the strength of Islam because of the power of Muslims. Because remember that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to Medina, Allah subhanaw taala granted him victory very soon, in the Battle of butter, Muslims were victorious in the Battle

00:13:57--> 00:14:15

of luck. They were victorious. So many battles took place, and eventually, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam even conquered Makkah. There were some people who are afraid that if we don't become Muslim, then we are going to be in trouble we are going to suffer. So they were never believers at heart just on the outward they accepted Islam out of fear.

00:14:16--> 00:14:54

This is the fear that a loss of penalties describing in these verses of the Thunderbolts and the lightning and the flash of lightning because of which they stand still in the darkness, or they put their fingers into their ears. They never truly believed they never ever believed they were always disbelievers. This is why Allah subhanaw taala calls them caffeine will love them or hate them bill caffeine, a lockout some caffeine in explicitly. With regard to the first group. They're not called caffeine explicitly. These people are called caffeine explicitly because they were never believers. So you understand this example now? Which kind of hypocrites This is talking about. And scholars

00:14:54--> 00:15:00

have said that in the second example, in the storm, there is rain. What is this

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

Rain refer to this rain refers to the revelation, the way the Quran that was being revealed. And in the Quran, there was warning, thunder, threat of punishment, lightning, some promises that are lost pilot it makes which could give person some hope, hope as well commands that seemed like death to them that if we do this, we're going into the mouth of death literally, this is what they felt. So it's talking about the commands that Allah subhanaw taala revealed, and they were so afraid of it that they just submitted. They just accept it to keep safe.

00:15:39--> 00:16:21

You understand? They were so afraid. They were not able to face the Muslims they were not able to come against the Prophet sallallahu wasallam against Islam that they just submitted on the outward will mahoma Hilton build grafitti but Allah says yada yada birka obasan calama Allahumma Sophie what either Alomar Liam Camilo sha Allah who led the hobby summary him well beside him, a lot can make them deaf and dumb, and blind, so that they cannot do anything at all. They cannot even show this Islam, they cannot even make a fake display of Islam. Some scholars have interpreted these two verses in another way as well. One is that the second example is referring to who the hypocrites

00:16:21--> 00:16:41

would never actually believed. Another interpretation is that it refers to those who are hypocrites in their actions, who are hypocrites were in their actions because there are two types of hypocrisy in our data. And secondly, normal that a person is a believer, he means that he is a believer, but in his actions, he has the actions of the hypocrites.

00:16:42--> 00:17:12

So, if you look at it, when there's lightning, what do they do? They walk, but when there is darkness, what do they do? They stand still. So when things are easy, when they're able to obey, there will be but as soon as things get difficult, they don't. It's amazing how they use water as art today or as decoration today. It's a major part of interior designing. Like for example, if you go to this hotel in Dubai, what they have is all what I'm here everybody says insha Allah Masha Allah to botica last, I should also use these words.

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

When things are easy. He does what Muslims should do.

00:17:18--> 00:17:56

When there's if they want the rivers to flow with speed, they will flow with speed. If they want the rivers to flow smoothly, gently that will happen if they want the river to go sideways, it will wreck a guest over there. You want to change things but can you But in general, you won't feel like a guest you'll be treated like a guest in the sense that everything will be brought to you will be served 24 seven, but there's no 24 min level in lumea talaia bar Moo hoo, and rivers of milk whose test never changes. You might think a river give it its Huck a luck and take it away. We learn about the hypocrite that the dislike what Allah has revealed. When a person dislikes what Allah has

00:17:56--> 00:18:01

revealed what Allah has commanded, there's no human then you might want to go away eventually.

00:18:02--> 00:18:36

What else do we learn from these verses any lesson that you've learned for yourself, and we should use our summer and our bustle, we should use our hearing and our vision that Allah subhanaw taala has given us the people who accepted Islam on the outward the second group, the second example, who would never even accepted Islam on the inside it was it that they did not know what the truth was. They knew but they did not like it. It is said that it refers to those people from the bunny Australia from the hood, who lived in Medina who saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who knew that he was a true messenger. They accepted Islam just on the outer because they knew they could not

00:18:36--> 00:19:19

withstand him. It is about them. Did they not know the truth they did. Allah says he can take away their hearing and their sights just like that. So we should beg a lot to enable us to use to benefit from our hearing from our vision. Because if we don't use these faculties, a lot can take them away. And if they're taken away, then we are lost. We are doomed. Loss of panel data give us all the ability or the this is that which rosy economic Avenue we were provided before. Why will they say this? Allah says they will say this because they will be given era has one face. He's the same he is consistent. We see that in this example. Rain refers to revelation to Quran and what is rain do it

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

causes the earth to come to life. Right? Everything benefits from rain the atmosphere becomes fresh the land the earth, the soil, the plants, the birds, the trees, the insects are so much life. So the life of our hearts comes from what the Quran says if a person feels weakness or faith in his heart, if a person feels the heart is diseased, then what should you do for some Quran, listen to some Quran, read some Quran. Understand some Quran. in difficult situations, we should not abandon our Islam but we should still hold on to it. Because these are the times when Allah subhanaw taala is testing us. Whenever somebody is doing something. It's very easy to do it but when nobody's

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

Doing it, then that's the real test. Are you really committed? Are you really honest for Allah, because if you're doing something for Allah, Allah sees you everywhere. So we should not abandon our religion or abandon what we're supposed to do in times when it's difficult. And remember that in difficult times, and when we hold on, that is when the man will really become strong. That is when the urge will be multiplied. That will be great as well. So difficult times are opportunities. difficulties are what in reality, opportunities to excel. There are times when you should give up and let go of everything that you have. Like, for example, if a person is climbing up a mountain,

00:20:40--> 00:20:58

and he says, Oh my god, this is very difficult. And he says, forget it. What is he gonna do? He's gonna fall. But if he lands on the news agenda, the surprises the enjoyment that Allah has placed in general, but yet the people of general will be comfortable, they will be at ease. You see what happens is they
