Juz’ 14: Al-Hijr – An-Nahl
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim In the name of Allah be Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful, the command of Allah is coming. So be not impatient for it. What Allah has decided, what he has decreed, it is certainly going to come. So be not impatient for it. Exalted is He, and high above what they associate with him, he sends down the angels with the inspiration of his command, upon whom He wills of his servants, telling them, Warren that there is no deity except me. So fear me, he created the heavens and earth in truth, for purpose. High is he above what they associate with him, he is high above free from any imperfection, but he doesn't suffer from the idols or from the partners that are
associated with him, meaning it does not harm him at all. He created men from a sperm drop, then at once he is a clear adversary, there was a time when every human being was nothing except what a drop off liquid. And then eventually, a human being grows and grows. And then when he is born, what happens the child, how does he speak? Barely a complete sentence, barely a clear word. And then what happens for either who hulsey Momo been? Then he becomes a clear adversary, arguing about Allah. Well, Anoma holla kaha. And the grazing livestock He has created for you in them is warmth, meaning you get warmed from their skin from their fur, from their wool, and numerous other benefits, the
food, the clothing, and from them you eat when a comfy Hydra Milan, and for you in them is the enjoyment of beauty when you bring them in for the evening. And when you send them out to pasture, meaning that scene when the animals are walking away, or coming back, that scene itself is so beautiful, and they carry our loads to a land you could not have reached except with difficulty to yourselves. Indeed, your Lord is kind and merciful, that he created these animals for you for your service. Otherwise, you would have to carry everything yourself. And even today, there are many places on earth which you cannot reach on a plane on a helicopter. You cannot reach on a car on a
jeep. No, you can only go on a meal on a donkey on a horse. So Allah subhanaw taala has provided these creatures for our benefit. And he created the horses, mules and donkeys for you to ride and as adornment and he creates that which you do not know. You know, it's amazing when you see those policeman on horses. What's the point? Like seriously, what's the point?
It's just adornment? Right? So Allah says himself, that we have created these animals for you so that you can ride and it's also adornment. It looks nice, while Hello Comella talamona and he will create that which you do not know meaning other means of transportation that will come after you.
Now what do we see here when Allah has created these animals for us? Whether it is the horses, the meals or it is the grazing livestock, we benefit from them? What should we do in return?
What should we do? First of all, acknowledge that this is from Allah.
Believe that we have this because Allah gave it he created it. Remember him remember the source, remember the giver and thank him, be grateful to him. Be grateful when you drink milk. Be grateful when you eat meat. Be grateful when you inshallah will wear your leather jacket or your woolen sweaters made from camel wool or sheep wool or something like that. Right? Be grateful. Your shoes even they're lined with
These things isn't that. So let's be grateful. Let's not forget that these were enjoying them because Allah provided them. And secondly, let us be considerate of the rights of these creatures also, Allah has created them for our use, not for abuse, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he passed by a camel. And he said that fear Allah regarding these mute animals, meaning these animals, they cannot talk to you. They cannot tell you what their words what they don't like, or what they need. So fear Allah regarding these, ride them when they are in a good condition and feed them when they are in good condition also, meaning don't ride them when they're unwell. When they have an injury,
be merciful to them, the profits or the loss. And I'm also said, ride on these animals when they are sound and leave them sound. And don't make them chairs for yourselves. Don't make them chairs for yourselves. What does that mean? That you're just sitting, you're making the candle stand and sitting on it so that you can chat with the other person. We don't have as many candles, but at least we have horses. So don't use a horse as a chair, that you're making the horse stand and you're sitting and chatting. No, it's not fair to the creature that it's being used as a piece of furniture. It feels your burden just because it cannot say anything, doesn't mean that you can abuse
it and upon Allah is the direction of the right way. And among the various paths are those deviating and if he will, he could have guided you all meaning if he wanted, he could have forced guidance on you. But he has given you the choice to see what you select for yourself. It is he who sends down rain from the sky. This is also his planning farm it is drink and farm it is foliage in which you pasture animals, water that comes down from the sky. I mean, that is something that we drink. Yes, we don't drink the rainwater directly. But the water that falls down it enters into rivers and streams and then reservoirs and yes, it gets filtered and then we end up drinking it. I mean it's
coming from somewhere. When you turn your tap on the water came from somewhere who made that who sent that along did but we take all these blessings for granted. And the same water from it also there's foliage, there's plants vegetation that the animals eat and then you eat the Animals he causes to grow for you thereby the crops olives, palm trees, grape vines, and from all the fruits indeed and that is a sign for people who give thought fruit salads. enjoying them every day or not. At a thought of time are you enjoying your fruit salad, a variety of various fruits, various colors, you know, tossed together in one bowl. Think this came from somewhere Allah made it when you're
feeling it don't just be there quickly quickly look take time to feel it to touch it to look at it at Mario the pattern the color the fragrance. Enough evali color is nicomachea Taka rune for people who give thought so let's give thought let's think any a subjective for you the night and the day and the sun and the moon and the stars are subjected by his command. Indeed in that are Signs for people who reason who think that all of this is here, where's it going, where to come from? Where am I going, and he has subjected whatever he multiplied for you on the earth of varying colors of varying categories. Indeed, and that is a sign for people who remember, in the feed radical idea
this is coming up again and again. So we should take a lesson from these things. Not that we use them while we close our eyes without even reflecting, Think. Think about the sign of the night when you go out for taraweeh at night. Think admire the day and look at the moon, the stars and everything in the earth and what is the conclusion that we should reach that the creator the planner, the manager the owner, is who? Who Allah azza wa jal. You see when a person reflects on Allah's creation, then what does he remember? Who does he remember? Allah? You remember Allah? And when you remember Allah, only then can you become Shakir of Allah. Only then can you truly be
grateful to Allah, gratitude results from this gratitude results from appreciating the creation of Allah, that Allah you made this to? Wow, you made this pomegranate as well. unique flavors, unique textures, when you give thought when you take time to appreciate these little little things. And these are not little by the way. But when you notice these things, then you appreciate the maker, then you appreciate the designer, the owner, the provider, but it has to be with the vicar of Allah with the reverence of Allah because there are many people who are studying, researching, observing all of these things, but without remembering Allah, all of their research. Does that give them faith
that does that produce Eman in their hearts? Not at all.
And it is you who subjected the sea for you to eat from it, tender meat and to extract from it ornaments which you wear pearls. And you see the ships plowing through it and he subjected it, that you may seek of his bounty and perhaps you will be grateful. So when you wear your pearls, be thankful to Allah. You see, everything is for free. Allah has given so much to us for free. What is it that we need to do in return, be grateful, be his servants, and he has cast into the earth firmly set mountains lasted shift with you and made rivers and roads that you may be guided meaning through the earth, Alice Pousada is made these natural pathways, enabling us to travel from one place to the
other and not get lost in the way. And this way we get to explore different places, and landmarks also, and by the stars, they're guided meaning in the nighttime when the signs of the earth are hidden, they're concealed by darkness, then Allah has kept signs in the sky, so that we are not lost, then is He who creates like one who does not create, so will you not be reminded? And if you should count the favors of Allah, you could not enumerate them. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Will La Jolla, Allah MoMA to ruin our matter. linoone. And Allah knows what you can see, and what you declare, he knows all our sins, yet he keeps giving us blessing after blessing. And
those they invoke other than Allah create nothing, and they themselves are created. They are in fact dead, not alive, and they do not perceive when they will be resurrected. Anything that is worshipped besides Allah, what is it? It's mahalo, its creation. And when it's creation, it has a much lesser status. It is weak, it has its deficiencies. And Allah says over here they are dead, especially the people, the human beings who died ages ago. But still people go to their graves and their prey to them. Allah says they are dead. Why would you dedicate your worship to them? If they cannot even help themselves? If they don't even know when they'll be resurrected? When they can come out of the
grave? How can they help you? So what is the conclusion of all of this? Isla hukum illa Huwa head, your God is only only one God, but those who do not believe in the hereafter. Their hearts are disapproving, and they are arrogant. assuredly, Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare, indeed he does not like the arrogant in the whole lie you have bull moose, duck berrien. Underlying this, Allah does not like the arrogant people. Such people can never draw close to Allah. What is it that Allah likes in his servants, humility, not pride. And when it is said to them, what has your Lord sent down, they say legends of the former peoples, this is their pride, that they may bear
their own burdens in full on the Day of Resurrection, and some of the burdens of those whom they misguide without knowledge. unquestionably evil is that which they bear, those before them had already plotted, but Allah came at their building from the foundations. So the roof fell upon them from above them, and the punishment came to them from where they did not perceive because this was on a plot of the machine, right? That just say a call on his stories of the people of the past, and nobody's going to listen to the Quran, and nobody's going to pay attention to it. Even now, the Quran is completely discredited, that people say, Oh, 1400 years old book
that was given to a man who was illiterate, apparently, they completely put it down that it shouldn't be given any importance. So this is all a scheme unless as the people before also tried many plans, tricks in order to lead people astray. Like for example, what is mentioned over here, no mood, what he did, he had a tower built and he said, You know what, I'm gonna go up and see where your God is. You say he's up, where is he? I'm gonna go find out. If I see him, fine, we'll believe in him. If he's not there, we won't believe in him. What happened? That structure, Allah says it was destroyed from its foundation. So no matter what a person does to compete with the signs of Allah,
with the word of Allah, He will only fail. Then on the Day of Resurrection, he will disgrace them and say, Where are my partners for whom you used to oppose the believers? Those who were given knowledge will say indeed disgrace this day and evil are upon the disbelievers, the ones whom the angels taken death while wronging themselves while they were doing something wrong, death came to them and who then offer submission saying we were not doing any evil? They lie. But yes, indeed, Allah is Knowing of what you used to do. So enter the gates of hell to abide eternally they're in and how wretched is the residence of the arrogant. You see, death is not termination.
Doesn't mean that a person is not finished call us. No, it means beginning of a new life in which there's either punishment or reward. Because over here, they were taken in depth and then federal Hello abueva Johanna Joaquin, and in Latina Tacoma De Anza, Laura bukom. And it is said to those who fear Allah, what has your Lord sent down? What is their response? They say?
They say it is all good. It's not stories. It's not just stories, and it's not false. It's not myths, it's all good. The question is, what do you believe the Quran is? Ask yourself, when I am asked about the Quran, what do I say? What's the first thought that comes to my mind? Those who fear Allah, what is their instant reaction? their immediate response? It's good, even if they come across an idea that they don't understand.
Yes, even if they come across something that's very difficult for them to accept because culturally, it's considered very, not okay. Yes.
It's high. It's all good. It's all good. Why? Because it's the word of Allah. The fact is that the more a person reflects on the Quran, the more he believes in it, and when he believes in it, it increases him in his conviction. So he follows it more strongly. And so Allah says little levena accent Wolfie heavy hit dunya Hassan, for those who do good in this world is good. Those who do good here, they will get good here as well. So never think that if you are going to do something for the sake of Allah, and you're suffering, then that's it. No, you are going to receive good. I mean, think about it before and I'm alone You were eating every day
weren't you? But did you really enjoy that breakfast? Or that dinner? The way you enjoy your food and your if Bob now
you enjoy it more now. Why? Because Allah says that for the fasting person, there are two delights one at a time when he will break his fast and the other at the time when he will meet his Lord. So Lin larina externo. Those people who do good in this life for them is goodness here to they're rewarded in this life also. So you will never suffer. If you obey Allah, you will definitely be compensated. And also, of course, what additional asset or to hide and the home of the Hereafter is better that should be our goal. And how excellent is the home of the righteous Jana to add in gardens of perpetual residents, eternity, which they will enter beneath which river school they will
have their in what ever they wish. Those who pursue this world can never be truly happy. Why? Because in this world, you can never have whatever you want. Nothing can be 100% according to your wishes, can it be mean right now I wish something was not the way it is. And it can't be. This is how life is. So where is that place where everything will be according to your wishes. How you want it? Where? Only then?
lumpy hammer yoshua ooh, catolica de la holmatro keen? Does does Allah reward the righteous? Who are the righteous, the ones whom the angels taken death being good and pure. Meaning when the angels come to take their souls caused them death? What condition are they in, clean and pure by you been clean in body clean in mind, clean in their clothing. And the angels when they come to them to take their souls away? They say Salaam Alaikum Peace be upon you. Although Norwegian Natha Bhima contento Malone enter paradise for what you used to do for what you used to do. How important is how important action is what does this teach us?
that it's not just about what we want we have to do it also. So make the offer yourself that are allowing the angels come to take my soul. They greet me with Salaam
they greet me with Salaam you see when somebody comes in the first thing they say to you is Salaam. You feel good. And if they come and they've just got a quiet, mean face, closed mouth. They're not saying anything, you know that they're coming with bad news. So there are some people who When the angels come to take them, they say Salaam to them and Salaam means these be on you. You're fine, you're good. And why are the old jenica Makoto Dharma loon do the disbelievers await anything except that the angels would come to them or there comes the command of your Lord dusted those do before them and Allah wrong them not but they had been wronging themselves. So they were struck by the evil
consequences of what they did. And we're in
Developed by what they used to ridicule and those who associate others with Alessi. If Allah had willed, We would not have worshipped anything other than him. Neither we nor our fathers, nor would we have forbidden anything through other than Him, meaning for their decisions, who is it that they're blaming? Allah subhanaw taala if Allah Weald we would never have done Schick, we would not have done it, our forefathers would not have done it. And if Allah wanted, we would not have changed the law of Allah. Allah says, Does did those do before them? Does this happen today also similar excuses all the time. So is there upon the messengers except the duty of clear notification, the
thing is that Allah has given choice to people right, do what you want. Here, we're not forced. Allah allows many things to happen, even though he does not like them. And we certainly sent into every nation a messenger saying, or Buddha law, which the Buddha who'd worship Allah and avoid Babu and among them were those whom Allah guided, and among them were those upon whom error was deservedly decreed, so proceed through the earth and observe how was the end of the deniers, even if you should try for their guidance, oh, Prophet, Indeed, Allah does not guide those whom he sends us tree, and they will have no helpers, and they swear by Allah, their strongest olts that Allah will
not resurrect one who dies so firm are they about there?
There is no resurrection, there is no afterlife, this has happened today. Even more so, so confident, are they about their disbelief? so confident? Allah says but yes, meaning why would you not resurrect it is a true problem is binding upon him, but most of the people do not know it is so he will make clear to them the truth of that wherein they differ. And so those who have disbelieved may know that they were liars. Indeed, our work to a thing when we intended is but that we say to be and it is, it is that easy for Allah to bring about the Day of Judgment. It's not difficult, he just has to say B and it is one Latina, heterophylla him and birdie male Zulu, and those who immigrated
for the cause of Allah after they had been wronged, we will surely settle them in this world in a good place. But the reward of the Hereafter is greater if only they could know if they knew their word of the hereafter. Imagine the state of their happiness. Imagine how much more they would strive. You know, like, when you know what is for if thought.
Does that give you something?
Yeah, gives you something right? Like if your mom says yeah, I know you guys have been fasting you've been doing so well. I'll make this today. And what happens you get submitted for that fast. So when a person knows the rewards that Allah has prepared in general, then what happens he gets Southern through this life also alladhina sabado Allah bigamy Attila Kowloon, they are those who endure patiently of and upon their Lord they relied and we sent not before you except men, to whom we revealed our message to so ask the people of the message if you do not know. We sent them with clear proofs and written ordinances. And we reveal to you the message that you may make clear to the
people what was sent down to them, and that they might give thought, a lot revealed or called onto to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and instructed him to clarify to the people, the Quran that was revealed, meaning a lot of the other Quran, but who's going to show people how to act upon the Quran, who was to show that who was to teach that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam through his words through his actions through his approvals. And this explanation of the Quran what is that it is the sooner the prophets of Allah said I'm after all, he was the walking Quran. This is why it is necessary that we also believe in the Hadees.
And you see, the one who was given the Quran he was more knowledgeable of the Quran than we are once a Sahabi. Sir even debate he was narrating to someone a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And the man said, well, the Quran says something different. So sorry, Benjamin, he got so angry with him. He said, I am telling you about the words of the Prophet, and you're bringing the Quran against it. The Messenger of Allah knew the book of Allah better than you. He knew the book of Allah better than you so the way he explained it, that is what we understand. Then do those who have planned evil deeds feel secure that Allah will not cause the earth to swallow them? Or that the punishment will
not come upon them from where they did not even perceive?
A person should never ever feel fearless from Allah's wrath. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, in this own mother shall be hos must and call the collapsing of the earth disfiguring of the face and this is something that will become common. A man said, O Messenger of Allah. When is that he said when singing women music and drinking in toxic and spread
When these sins will spread, then such natural disasters will also become common. So do they feel secure, or that he would not seize them during their usual activity and they could not cause failure? Or that he would not see them gradually in a state of dread. But indeed your Lord is kind and merciful. Have they not considered what things Allah has created, their shadows inclined to the right and to the left prostrating to Allah, while they are humble, and to a lot of prostrates whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth of creatures and the angels as well, and they are not arrogant. The fact is, that when a servant is in the position of sudduth, he is in the
closest position he can be to Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the nearest servant comes to his Lord is when he is prostrating himself, so make supplication in this state, and such there is the most beloved deed near Allah, the Most Beloved deed, So Bernardo arndell, he asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about the act which was most loved by Allah, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, la could be castrati sujood la cabeza karate sudduth. Make frequent prostrations before Allah for you will not make a single prostration except that it will raise you a degree because of it and remove a sin from you because of it.
This is the benefit of subdued What is it? one degree is raised and one sin is erased so basically you're going to levels up in a way. Now these days what happens at nighttime Salah becomes so difficult kreon becomes so difficult remember this hadith with eat sudo than sha Allah. One sin is a raised and one level is raised your half will not have bahaman FOCA him, way afar, Luna Ma, you moron. They fear their Lord above them and they do whatever they're commanded. And Allah has said do not take for yourself to deities. He is but one god so if you're only me, and To Him belongs whatever isn't the heavens and the earth, and to him as Do you worship constantly, then is it other
than Allah that you fear and whatever you have a favor it is from Allah. Then when adversity touches you, to him, You cry for help, then when he removes the adversity from you, at once a party of you associates others with their Lord. So, they will deny what we have given them, then enjoy yourselves for you are going to know and they are assigned to what they do not know a portion of that which we have provided them by Allah, you will surely be questioned about what you're used to invent. And they attribute to Allah doctor is Exalted is He and for them is what they desire. And when one of them is informed of the birth of a female, his face becomes dark, and he suppresses grief, he hides
himself from the people because of the ill, which he has been informed off. Should he keep it in humiliation or bury it in the ground. unquestionably evil is what they decide. This generally existed at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and unfortunately, it exists still today, when somebody has a daughter. Oh, nice. And when somebody has a son and other son, wow, Mashallah, congratulations. Unfortunately, these are some concepts that we do live with, even if we don't come out with it openly. These are things that we think about. Daughters should not be disliked, or look down on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, Do not dislike doctors, for indeed they are friendly
and worth importance. This is an authentic hadith from sincerity hadiza because I'm sure you've never heard it before. led to Creole banner for in Hoon, l. Mo, Nisa olalia. They're friendly. And I mean, if you think about it, when you have a girl in the house and a boy in the house, which one is more lively of girls, right?
And he said they are worth importance. But what happens girls, they're told, oh, you're going to get married one day. Why bother spending on you? indirectly, girls are treated like this. But you're only here for a few days, you can share your bedroom with your sister, but your brother Oh, he has to have his own bedroom. This kind of bias. It's there in our family. Why? Because we look down on daughters. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam forbade us from doing that. For those who do not believe in the Hereafter is the description of evil and for Allah is the highest attribute and he is the Exalted in Might the wise and if Allah were to impose blame on the people for their wrongdoing, he
would not have left upon the earth any creature, but he defers them for a specified term, and when their term has come, they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they proceed it the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said no place has decreed for someone to die in except that it is made beloved to him and there is some need of his placed in it. So he goes there and when he goes there, he dies there and they attribute to Allah, that which they dislike, and their tongues assert the lie, that they will have the best from him. assuredly they will have the fire and they will be there and neglected by Allah.
We did certainly send messengers donations before you, but champon, mid 30s attractive to them, and he is the disbelievers ally today as well. And they will have a painful punishment. And we have not revealed to you the book or messenger except for you to make clear to them that we're in they have deferred and as guidance and mercy for people who believe and Allah has sent down rain from the sky and given life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness indeed, and that is a sign for people who listen
