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

Bismillah

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

What's up?

00:00:59--> 00:01:00

Jd

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

Yo, to

00:01:19--> 00:02:09

smilla rahmanir rahim In the Name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful Alif Lam Meem rah, these are the verses of the book, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth. But most of the people do not believe it is Allah who has set up the heavens without pillars that you can see. Then he established Himself above the Throne, and made subject the sun and the moon, he subjected the sun and the moon, each running its course for a specified term, he arranges each matter, he details the signs that you may have the meeting with your Lord be certain. Allah is the one who is managing the affairs of this entire universe. He has subjected the sun, the moon,

00:02:09--> 00:02:15

each is going on its course you the Bureau of he manages the affairs, the affairs of who

00:02:16--> 00:03:01

have who have everything, everyone. What about your life? What about your health, Allah manages that Allah has full control over it. And the story of use of RSM is a perfect example of that, that if something happens in your life, it can only happen by Allah's will. And if you are suffering from something only Allah can remove it from you. And if some good Allah has decreed for you, no one, no one can take it away from you, not those who throw you in a well not those who put you in a prison, not those who accuse you falsely, nobody can take away some good that Allah has decreed for you. Allah is the one who has full control over the affairs of this entire universe. In fact, he is the

00:03:01--> 00:03:46

one who when he wills, then something happens without his will, nothing happens. And it is he who has spread the earth and placed there and firmly set mountains and rivers. And from all of the fruits he made there in two minutes, he causes the night to cover the day, indeed in that are Signs for people who give thought, so look at the creation and think if Allah is managing these mountains and these trees, you know, Somebody once told me that they went on this huge ice field. All right, and next to that ice field where massive mountains and she said when she was standing there, she walked really far on that ice field and then there is massive mountain, she said I felt myself so

00:03:46--> 00:04:34

small, so small. And then she said I realized that if Allah controls these mountains, if Allah has created he is looking after the affairs of this massive creation, then what I want from Allah is not difficult for him to give, if he can create these massive mountains, can he not give me the little that I want? He can so reflect on the creation, the komiya rune because when you reflect on the creation, that is when you get email and when you strengthen your email, you get solid, you get sugar, you have hope, and within the land, our neighboring plots and gardens of grape vines and crops and palm trees growing several from a root or otherwise one root and so many plants are coming

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

out of there or one root and one plant is coming one stem watered with the same water but we make some of them exceed others in quality of fruit, indeed in that are Signs for people who reason. And if you are astonished, then astonishing is they're saying when we are dust will we indeed be brought into a new creation. Those are the ones who have disbelieved in their Lord, and those will have shackles.

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

upon their necks and those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide there eternally because they shackled themselves with slavery to this world. They did not allow themselves to open up their eyes and look up and look at the creation of Allah reflect on it and realize Allah spower through that the shackle themselves their pride shackle them in the hereafter in Hellfire, they will be shackled. And they impatiently urge you to bring about evil before good while there has already occurred before them similar punishments to what they demand. And indeed your Lord is full of forgiveness for the people, despite their wrongdoing. And indeed your Lord is severe in penalty. And

00:05:36--> 00:06:25

those who disbelieve say, Why has a sign not been sent down to him from his Lord, You are only a warner and for every people is a guide. Allah knows what every female carries. He when the female doesn't know what she's carrying, Allah knows and what the wombs lose prematurely or exceed, and everything with him is by deal measure, this grief also this pain also which is in the heart is only there for a certain time, this burden this difficulty this trial is temporary, there will be there will be an opening, there will be an end to this, because for everything is a decree, he is the Knower of the unseen alima lavey was Shahada and kabiru taral The Knower of the unseen and the

00:06:25--> 00:06:52

witnessed, the grand the exalted, he is the Exalted and remember the highest status, the highest rank, the highest position is of Allah and no one is above him he is mortal. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the most beloved speech to Allah is when the servant says soprano Coloma will be handy. What about our customers smoker with our Allah Duca Allah

00:06:54--> 00:07:14

tala Duca exalted is your might, you are the exalted so when a servant says this, this is the most beloved speech to Allah. But how do we say this? If we say it in our prayers? How do we say it without even think? Can you imagine when you say this? This is the most beloved speech of yours near Allah.

00:07:15--> 00:07:42

The most beloved speech of yours near Allah is these words, but how do we say them without even thinking? It is the same to him concerning you, whether one conceals his speech or one publicizes it, and whether one is hidden by night, or conspicuous among others by day, for each one are successive angels before and behind him, who protect him by the decree of Allah, with each and every one of us angels, protecting by Allah decree.

00:07:43--> 00:07:55

Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. Because we wonder sometimes, that if there's angels protecting us, and we want to set our doors, then how come I'm in pain?

00:07:56--> 00:08:14

How come? I'm suffering? Why? Because it's our fault. We did not change our actions, you know, like a person could say, I said, Bismillah, before I ate burning hot food, and of the angels are supposed to protect me, then why did my tongue burn? Well, you did not change your behavior, you shouldn't have put that hot food in your mouth.

00:08:15--> 00:09:00

A lot of does not change the state of a people until they change what is in themselves. We have to change our condition ourselves. We have to take a step towards that change. And when we will take that step, then Allah will facilitate that change. We don't lift a finger we don't move at all. And we just hope that Allah will do everything for us. Yes, Allah can do everything for us, but he doesn't force things on people. They have to be willing to change their condition also. And when Allah intense for people ill there is no rebelling it and there is not for them besides him any protector, it is he who shows you lightning, causing fear and aspiration and generates the heavy

00:09:00--> 00:09:37

clouds. Allah sends the heavy clouds and the thunder exalts Allah with praise of him and the angels as well from fear of him, the angels, they do the speed of Allah, how why out of fear of Allah. So do we need to fear Allah and exalt Him and praise him also. And he sends thunderbolts and strikes there with whom He wills while they dispute about Allah, and Allah is severe in assault. Meaning if a servant does not fear him, and he continues in his wrong, then when Allah will punish that punishment will be severe.

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

We see over here in this ayah Lord is mentioned rod is thunder. And from Hadith we also see that rod is the name of an angel and authentic hadith in a sociological article. So here, we learned that once the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that larva is the angel from among the angels responsible over the clouds, in his hand is a sword or a

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

A fire by which he drives the clouds wherever Allah wills. This is alert. And this right you set behavoir to be handy such a mighty angel, taking the clouds driving the clouds. And what does that Angel do? You Sabir Lord will be handy he, even he praises Allah. While Allah He cattlemen, he fat he and the rest of the angels when they hear the thunder, when they see the lightning, when they see the clouds approaching, and when they see all these great things happening and Allah has dominion, what do they do? They also glorify Allah out of his fear.

00:10:41--> 00:10:46

The question is, how much do I do the speed and timing of my Lord?

00:10:48--> 00:11:03

And especially when there's thunder, there's a there are that we should say, soprano lady, Sabbath Allahu, or sapan. And lady, you said the harar to be handy, while mila economici fatty and the Thunderbolts that are mentioned over here, Allah strikes them on whom He wills.

00:11:04--> 00:11:25

Why, as a punishment, while they are arguing about Allah, we learn that and also the low argue reported that the prophets of Allah Islam sent a man from his companions to one of the leaders of the machine in order to call him to worship Allah alone. So that mi[???] man. He said, that this God whom you are calling us to, is he made of gold or silver,

00:11:27--> 00:12:02

or something else, under the companion was like, he's not made of gold or silver or anything else. He's Allah. He's the creator of gold and silver, but the man insisted. So the Sahaba he basically gave up he went to the prophets of Allah sentiment, the prophet said, awesome, told him to go back and call him to a lot the same, the same thing that man mentioned that mushrik is made of gold, silver, or something else. This was like mockery, because near them, the most precious thing was golden silver. So if the God that you're calling me to is not made of gold and silver, I have no interest. Right? This was the message he was ridiculing Allah subhanho wa Taala. And what happened?

00:12:02--> 00:12:20

The Sahabi, for a number of times, he had to go back to this man, when he was going, when he went there, he saw that that man had been struck with a cipher with a thunderbolt destroyed completely. So a person must be very careful when saying anything about a lot that is not appropriate.

00:12:21--> 00:13:03

saying anything about Allah, which is not appropriate. Sometimes, jokes are made about God and we say, Oh, god, this is other people's God. God is God. Unless of course, it's an idol. But even that Allah has told us not to do that. Why? Because if you make fun of their gods, they will make fun of Allah subhana wa Lahu, that what will help to Him alone is a supplication of truth. And those they call upon besides Him do not respond to them with a thing, except as one who stretches his hands toward water from afar, calling it to reach his mouth, but it will not reach it. If you're thirsty. And you just extend your hand out and you say water, come here water, will water ever come? No. Or

00:13:03--> 00:13:22

if your palm is open, and you take some water in your hand and you try to drink like that. By the time your hand reaches the mouth, what will happen? All the water will fall Why is it the children find it so difficult to rinse their mouth with their and they need a cup? Why? Because they don't know how to keep water in the head. So if it's an open palm, the water will never reach the mouth.

00:13:24--> 00:13:42

And the supplication of the disbelievers is not an error, meaning those who call upon other than Allah, their effort is like this. It says if a person is just asking water to come to it, will it ever come? No. Water is my fluke, right? It does not have a will of its own. It cannot help us by its own Well,

00:13:43--> 00:14:18

it's a means it's a creation that Allah has created for our benefit. So we don't worship water. We use it. We don't get overly attached to it. We don't depend on it. We depend on who Allah annoying that Allah has created this water for us. So calling upon other than Allah. This is a useless effort. It doesn't bring any benefit to a person and to Allah frustrates whoever is within the heavens and the earth willingly or by compulsion, and their shadows as well in the mornings and the afternoons. So when you go out, it's sunny, it's hot. Look at the shadow.

00:14:19--> 00:14:59

Look at the shadow and think my shadow is lying down for Allah lying down. And what am I doing? Do I also frustrate to Allah? literally meaning physically the physical prostration? And also, do I humble myself before Allah do I also just surrender before Allah? Everything surrenders to Allah? And if my shadow is prostrating to Allah, why shouldn't I prostrate to Allah? And when we do prostrate to Allah, how is it that we should prostrate properly on seven bones? on seven bones the prophets are the lessons said, when a person frustrates he frustrated seven parts of the body, his face and that means his

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

forehead and nose, both should be touching the floor, his hands. So that means our palms should be touching the floor, not that we have rested our hands in a cup form so that just the fingertips are touching in the end of the hand is touching the wrist is touching, know the entire hand, both the hands and his knees, the knees should also be touching the floor, and the feet, feet should also be touching the floor because sometimes either we rest our feet and lift up our knee a little bit Institute, or we lift up our toes a little bit not all seven bones, this is proper such though this is proper such though say, who was Lord of the heavens and the earth, say Allah say, Have you then

00:15:42--> 00:16:28

taken besides him allies not possessing even for themselves any benefit or any harm, say is the blind equivalent to the seeing or is darkness equivalent to light or have they attribute it to Allah partners who created like his creation, so that the creation of each seemed similar to them, say Allah is the Creator of all things, and he is the one the prevailing, he sends down water from the sky, rain, and valleys flow according to their capacity. Each takes according to his or her capacity, Ramadan has come with its blessings, each will only take what he wants to take. Likewise, Allah sent the Quran each will only take as much as he is interested in. And this is general, good,

00:16:28--> 00:17:14

Allah subhanaw taala has spread it, how much is it that we take according to our capacity, and our capacity is according to our desire our want, how much of this do I want? You know, it's like when you go to a store, you have a whole cart, it's up to you, you can fill it to the top, or you can come out empty. With that card completely empty, it's up to you. So likewise, Allah sends down rain from the sky, valleys floor according to their capacity. And the torrent carries a rising fall meaning as the water flows, then there's foam scum that rises to the surface of the water, human, a person seeks alien when a person thinks about when a person goes out in the wave a lot and trials

00:17:14--> 00:17:23

come, then difficulties come just like when you put meat in water, and you boil it, what will rise to the surface

00:17:24--> 00:18:11

form? Anything that is boiled even rice when you were boiling it? Is there any form that comes to the surface? Right? So when we take a step towards Allah, we are tested. And in that test what happens? We recognize our impurities. Because what happens is that in normal circumstances, those impurities are blended. But then when we're put in hot water than what happens, the impurities are separated. Now it is up to us, do we get rid of those impurities? Like for example, these days, when you are fasting, you're tired, you're hungry, you see really what your sub is like? You identify your impurities, you see them. Now it's up to us? Do we make an effort to get rid of them? Or do we

00:18:11--> 00:18:20

just go back to the way we were before re absorb those impurities or let them sit and putrefy and get worse.

00:18:21--> 00:19:09

Anything anything when it's boiled. When it's heated, the scum rises to the top and from that or which they heat in the fire desiring adornments and utensils is a form like it meaning even when gold something so precious, even when that is heated, there will rise scum from it as well. So latos a coup enforcer calm, don't claim to be pure, each person has deficiencies and impurities. And when Allah puts us through trials, it is for our own good. Thus Allah presents the example of truth and falsehood. As for the foam, it vanishes being cast off. And as for that which benefits the people it remains on the earth, it remains on the earth. And this is also a very important lesson that we

00:19:09--> 00:19:57

learn from this example. That form what happens to it, it just rises to the surface. weightless things are garbage, it just rises to the surface. And as the water moves forward, what happens to this garbage it gets left behind on the side, it's thrown off. Likewise, people who do not bring much value to others, they do not have stability in the earth. They cannot last very long. But people who bring value to others who are productive who are helpful, then what happens? What am I infer ness famco fill up when you have the meat boiling in the water. And then you have the scum at the top. What do you keep the meat or the scum? Many times it happens that you take off the foam

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

right? You take it off but then do you put it

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

Back in the food, do you eat that? No, you throw it away, it's garbage. So we need to see where I live, the people that I am in what am I to them? Am I valuable? Am I the gold? Am I the meat? Or am I the form the garbage which has to be discarded? Thus does Allah present examples for those who have responded to their Lord is the best reward. But those who did not respond to him, if they had all that is in the earth entirely, and the lack of it with it, they would attempt to ransom themselves thereby those will have the worst account and their refuge is hell. And wretched is a resting place. You see use of artists and I wasn't he beneficial wherever he was,

00:20:42--> 00:20:47

wherever he was, even when he was picked up by the caravan, at least they made some money by selling him.

00:20:48--> 00:21:22

And then, when he was as a slave, he worked hard. In the prison. He's helping he's a Morrison. And then later on, when he's got all the power that he has, still when his brothers come to Him, they say Nana Walker, middle varsity. So who is it that made it to the top? Who is it that remained use of early center? Right? So those who are beneficial, they're the ones who lost their legacy remains. So we need to see what kind of life Am I living a selfish life in which I'm just taking from others? Or am I also giving something of value helping the creation of Allah?

00:21:23--> 00:21:40

For me, RLM or unima? On zero la Camilla Bickle. How kookmin who are among then is He who knows that what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth like one who is blind? Can they be the same? No way, they will only be reminded Who are the people of understanding

00:21:41--> 00:22:26

alladhina you funa Vieira de la he wallerian Kunal mythique, those who fulfill the covenant of Allah and do not break the contract will lead in a ously Luna Amara la will be a useful and those who join that which Allah has ordered to be joined. What is it that Allah has ordered should be joined blood ties, blood relationships, so those who maintain these ties were shown or bahaman they fear their Lord, when a foreigner suit is up, and they are afraid of the evil of their account. When levena sobre rahmatullah wa zero bn and those who are patient seeking the countenance of their Lord, they establish prayer, this band out of what We have provided them secretly and openly, and they avert

00:22:26--> 00:22:29

evil with good hula ecola, who Morocco bad

00:22:30--> 00:22:48

for them is the good consequence of the home of the Hereafter, meaning they will have Jenna I mean, all of this seems so beautiful, but we need to see how much is it that we are doing? First of all, after my yarlung he knows the person knows that the Quran is how

00:22:49--> 00:23:35

he knows himself that the Quran has helped, then those who fulfill their covenants, then those who maintain the ties of relationship that Allah has created, because sometimes it's very easy to get along with friends when we have chosen and it's difficult to get along with relatives whom Allah has chosen for us, but maintaining them for Allah sake, keeping those ties for Allah azza wa jal, intermodal, Dillard who said that he who fears his Lord and joins the ties of relationships, then his life will be extended, wealth will be increased for him and his family also will love him, his family will love him even Armada saying this he must have experienced this, he must have observed

00:23:35--> 00:24:15

this, that the one who maintains good relationships, the one who joins the relationship with the one who breaks off from him, then what happens his family also loves him, then those who fulfill the covenant of Allah and do not break the contracts that they make the second time this is coming, because who will keep true to his promises? The one who has fear of Allah? So what larina Yes, Luna Amara la will be a useful way of showing her a bomb. Well Hakuna su l his app. So you see, are this mentioned mythique has mentioned two things are mentioned. And then what is mentioned those were patient, seeking the face of their Lord.

00:24:16--> 00:24:24

They are patient. Why? Because they want to see Allah. Otherwise, they wouldn't do something because summer is not easy.

00:24:25--> 00:24:59

Patience is not easy at all. Patience is what that you bear the difficulty that has come your way. Is it easy to bear difficulties? No. What is easier that you just throw them away? You quit and you walk away? You give up? But who is it that will continue? Who is the one who has the end in mind and what is the end? Allah will be happy with me. And when he will be happy with me. I get to see him I see his face. So when larina Savile Row a with our hero, be him. A woman came to the profits of the laws that I'm asking him

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

To pray for her so that her illness would be removed. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, if you wish, I will make the offer you so that you are cured. But if you wish to be patient, then there will be no hisab for you,

00:25:13--> 00:25:19

if you wish, then be patient and bear this illness, and Allah will not question you.

00:25:20--> 00:25:30

So that woman said, I will be patient, and know his and for me, that is what I choose what larina sabado able to watch.

00:25:32--> 00:26:13

You see these trials are a part of life, illness, loss, pain, whatever it may be, whatever shape or form it comes in. It is part of life. And this is what we have to do subber over seeking unless face what I'll call Masada. And they establish the prayer and spend from what We have provided them secretly and openly, and they prevent evil with good. Those will have the good consequences of this home gardens of perpetual residents, they will enter them with whoever was righteous among their fathers, their spouses and their children. But it is only if their relatives were also righteous themselves. Otherwise, these relationships will be terminated in the Hereafter, there'll be

00:26:13--> 00:27:04

finished, cut off. So if we want these relationships to last, then we have to worry about the man of those who are most beloved to us. And the angels will enter upon them from every gate saying Salaam Alaikum Bhima sabaton Peace be upon you for what you patiently endured. Jana is not for free, it is resolved. And this life is about sober and excellent is the final home. But those who break the covenant of Allah after contracting it and sever that which Allah has ordered to be joined and spread corruption on Earth, for them is the curse and they will have the worst home. Allah extends provision for whom He wills and restricts it, and they rejoice in the worldly life. They rejoice in

00:27:04--> 00:27:47

the worldly life, thinking that it is everything. if they have any worries, they worry for this life only if they have fun. They have fun doing something in this life only, while the worldly life is not compared to the hereafter except brief enjoyment. And those who disbelieved say, Why are the sign not been sent down to him from his Lord say, Indeed, Allah leaves a stray whom He wills and guides to himself, whoever turns back to him, and who are those who turned to him and letting me know what Akuma in nikolova, whom by decree law, LLB degree law, he takoma in all kolu. Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah, unquestionably, by the

00:27:47--> 00:28:37

remembrance of Allah hearts are assured, meaning the heart cannot find peace in anything except the remembrance of Allah, except the remembrance of Allah. And without a man, the vicar also does not help, it cannot help. So that way of finding peace is what believing in the one who made you and remembering the one who made you. This is the only way of finding peace in life. Because this life is full of hardships, it's full of trials, it's full of things that go against our desires. Every day we experienced this, how do you stay calm? How do you stay at peace? How? By remembering Allah by believing in Allah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the example of the one who celebrates the

00:28:37--> 00:29:00

praises of his Lord leading who does the vicar of Allah, in comparison to the one who does not is that of a living, compared to a dead one. Imagine a living creature versus a dead creature is there a difference between the two? So the one who believes in his Lord and remembers his Lord, He is like the one who is alive. Why because a living thing a living creature doesn't get to enjoy,

00:29:01--> 00:29:17

doesn't get to enjoy, yes, and a dead creature doesn't get to enjoy nothing at all. So, the person who remembers Allah whose heart is at ease, even in the most difficult situations, what will happen, he will have a reason to be grateful, he will be happy.

00:29:18--> 00:29:59

He will find happiness and peace even in the most difficult situations in his life. Why? Because of his faith, those who have believed and then righteous deeds, a good state is there's a good return does have we sent you to a community before which other communities have passed on. So you might recite to them that which we reveal to you while they disbelieve in the Most Merciful, say, he is my Lord, there is no deity except Him upon him I rely and to him as my return. And if there was any Koran by which the mountains would be removed, or the Earth would be broken apart, or the dead would be made to speak it would be this Koran.

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

This Quran is the most effective speech. So if this person doesn't affect a person, then what will affect him, but to Allah belongs the affair entirely. Then have those who believe not accepted that had Allah willed, He would have guided the people, all of them. And those who disbelieve, do not cease to be struck for what they have done by calamity, or it will descend near their home. This is a warning a calamity near their home, until there comes the promise of Allah. Indeed, Allah does not fail in his promise, and already were other messengers ridiculed before you and I extended the time of those who disbelieved. Then I seize them and how terrible was my penalty for men who are immune

00:30:42--> 00:31:24

Allah Coleen fcmb. maka Sabbath, then is He who is a maintainer of every soul, Allah, he sees our deeds he sees our records, knowing what it has earned like any other, but to Allah, they have attributed partners, Allah, the One who knows everything they have attributed partners to him, those who know nothing, say name them, or do you inform him of that which he knows not upon the earth, or of what is apparent of speech. Rather, their own plan has been made attractive to those who disbelieve and they have been diverted from the way and whomever Allah leaves astray, there will be for him no guide. So these gods, the false gods, that they believe in what is their reality, it's

00:31:24--> 00:32:09

just speech, it's just words, there is no truth to them, for them will be punishment in the life of this world. And the punishment of the Hereafter is more severe, and they will not have from Allah any protector. The example of Paradise, which the righteous have been promised, is that beneath it rivers flow, how Allah knows, it's something that we cannot even imagine here, houses genda, beneath which rivers flow garden beneath which rivers flow, its fruit is lasting, and its shade never ending, that is the consequence for the righteous, and the consequence of the disbelievers is the fire. What do we see in this ayah that the fruits of genda are eternal. Once the prophets of Allah

00:32:09--> 00:32:50

was praying sada and in his Salah, he was made to see many things. And after the Salah, he said, I was shown Jenna, and I wanted to have a bunch of fruit from it. I wanted to just reach my hand out and take a bunch of fruit from it, had I taken it, you would have eaten from it, as long as the world remains endless, never ending. What happens in this world. Every other day, you have to go for groceries. You think before Ramadan, get the kitchen ready. And now you see you're running out of something that you need. All right. So this is a sad reality of this world. Even our boss with a lower arm, who he also described the fruits of genda. And one of the descriptions that he gave

00:32:50--> 00:32:57

seedless, they will have no seeds, meaning the dates will have no seeds in them. Why is it that we need seeds over here,

00:32:58--> 00:33:37

so that we can have more. But in general, there is no such problem. Over there. Food is just for enjoyment. And the believers among those to whom we have given the previous scripture, rejoice at what has been revealed to you. But among the opposing factions, or those who deny part of it say I have only been commanded to worship Allah and not associate anything with him. To him, I invite unto him is my return. And thus we have revealed it as an Arabic legislation. And if you should follow their inclinations, after what has come to you of knowledge, you would not have against Allah, any ally or any protector. And We have certainly sent messengers before you and assigned to them wives

00:33:37--> 00:34:18

and descendants. And it was not for a messenger to come with the sign except by permission of Allah, for every term is a decree, a law eliminates what He wills or confirms, and with him is the mother of the book, meaning Allah has everything written, whatever he wants, he can have it changed. It's up to him, because ultimately, he is the master. And whether we show you part of what we promised them or take you in depth upon you is only the duty of notification and upon us is the account, have they not seen that we set upon the land reducing it from its borders, do they not see that we are reducing the earth. Earlier I mentioned to you the Hadith in which we learned the Prophet sallallahu

00:34:18--> 00:34:59

Sallam said that the example of this life is like that of a pond of water from which animals and people have been drinking and with time that water has been reducing and now what is left of it, just a little bit of murky dirty water that is left of it. So we see that this dunya is literally physically also it is shrinking. In the Quran also Allah says do not see it that we are reducing it from its borders, and Allah decides there is no adjuster of his decision. And he is swift in account and those before them had plotted but to Allah belongs the plan entirely. This is something we need to remember. We'll call the macaron lady and I'm in covering him for the lair Hill mahalo Jamia

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

The entire plan belongs to Allah, meaning he still has control over it. He knows what every soul earns and the disbelievers will know for whom is the final home. And those who have disbelieved, saying less than more Salah you are not a messenger, they don't acknowledge it. Allah says, say, sufficient is Allah as witness between me and you, and the witness of whoever has knowledge of the Scripture. What a beautiful lesson that if people deny, they don't want to acknowledge the gifts that Allah has given you. Let them not acknowledge what is enough for you, that Allah has given them. And we see this in the story of use of artists that I'm also how long his brothers were in

00:35:42--> 00:36:00

denial. But then what happened? Eventually, they accepted. So the lesson is that no matter what happens in life, no matter who says what, don't, don't give up, be hopeful. Be patient, be grateful, be positive, because there's always a reason to be positive.
