Allah Allah cola in Atlanta Sofia Maria sobre la uncreative said, Did I not tell you that with me you would never be able to have patience. Now this is Masada salaams second mistake. Allah insol to current che imbaba fella to Sahib Ronnie Moosa said if I should ask you about anything after this, then do not keep me as a companion you have obtained from me and excuse meaning then you can send me away. If I ask you one more time, then you can send me away because three chances are good, right? three chances are good. The prophets last time said may Allah have mercy and Masada said him had he been patient, we could have learned more. So phone caller calls. So they set out until when they

00:02:15--> 00:02:58

came to the people of a town. They asked its people for food, but they refused to offer them any hospitality. And they found there in a wall about to collapse. So hidden, restored it most artists Anam said, if you wish you could have taken for it a payment. Now he is making a suggestion over here. He's not really asking a question. But there's an implied question over here. Why would you do a favor to the people who didn't even offer vote to you. And by the way, you did a service to them, so you could definitely charge them for it. So I lay them said, this is parting between me and you. I will inform you of the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience. And what do

00:02:58--> 00:03:03

we see about unfaded over here, that he is satisfying the curiosity of masala hustler.

00:03:04--> 00:03:48

Now we see over here that the actions of Cleveland, they kept most artists not only interested and alert but also very curious. And that is the key to learning that when the student is curious than what happens, they're eager to learn. So over here, whatever I handled it and the fact that he told him no questions allowed. It kept musallam alert, more interested, more curious. And whatever he did in this journey, we see that apparently, it didn't make much sense, killing a boy building a wall of a people who refuse to offer you any hospitality and making a hole in a ship. I mean, all of this seems illogical, nonsensical. However, as we will learn in the following verses that there was much

00:03:48--> 00:04:07

hidden benefit in them. And there are many things in life that are like this. We don't understand why they are happening. They seem so illogical, counterproductive. But they happen. They seem unfair, they seem unjust. But in the bigger picture, they have a plus side to them as well.

00:04:09--> 00:04:51

You know, for example, a person could be sick. And they might feel like why this is happening to them. Why? But in the big picture, they realize that that sickness was indeed better for them. Because Allah subhanaw taala brings about good because of that sickness. Allah causes families to come together when one person is ill, isn't it? So? When one person is ill in the family, then what happens? Everybody's constantly calling each other. How are they doing? Do they need anything, the family is close together. But then what happens when that person is back at home, everything is fine. Then a week goes by and nobody calls the other. There's no contact, no communication. So we

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

see that when we are going through some hardship, it is difficult to accept it. Why because we don't understand why it's happening. And there are many

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

Many things in life that are like this. But as we will see that there is good in everything that Allah decrees. And eventually, we accept that what happened was indeed, the best thing that could have ever happened. Right now we don't understand. But after many years, we understand after some time we understand. So what we learned from this is that no matter what happens in life, always, always be happy with the decree of Allah. Just accept it, but only to be like Europa, Allah, I accept you as my Lord, You are my God, You created me, you know what my struggles are, you know what I'm facing, and you decide my affairs. So if you have decreed this, for me, I don't understand why.

00:05:42--> 00:06:28

But if you decreed it, I trust your decision. Now, I'll say that explains why he did what he did. He says, As for the ship, it belonged to some poor people working at the sea. So I intended to cause defect in it, as there was after them a king who seized every good ship by force. So if their ship was perfectly fine, without a wall, what would happen, the king would see the ship and he would take it by force, and these four people would be left with no ship at all. So what is better having no ship or having a damaged ship, a damaged ship. And as for the boy, his parents were believers, and we feared that he would overburden them by transgression and disbelief. For Aradhana, so we intended

00:06:28--> 00:07:13

that their Lord should substitute for them one better than him in purity and near to mercy. These are the qualities of a good child of a good daughter of a good son. What that a good child is hired on Mendoza, Catherine will acaba aroma, respectful, and one who shows Good luck to his parents, because the parents are the most deserving of good o'clock. They're the most deserving of our love of our mercy, respect, obedience. And likewise, they're also most deserving of sleep after that we should maintain ties with them, that no matter what they do, we still stay connected with them. No matter what mistake they made, we still forgive them. And we show mercy to them and ask Allah to

00:07:13--> 00:07:57

show mercy to them as well. Obey even Karp said that the boy whom Heather had killed, would grow up to be a disbeliever. And had he lived, he would have moved his parents to rebellion and unbelief also, you see, it's somebody's choice. If they want to be a disbeliever, that's fine. If they don't want to believe they want to have a different fate. That's perfectly fine. However, when this will cause damage to the parents and cause them pain and hurt, and obey, even carb said that he would have moved his parents to rebellion and unbelief. Meaning he would make them disbelieve also, then this was a problem. Now, what do we see over here that there are hidden benefits in every decree of

00:07:57--> 00:08:29

Allah xojo in everything that goes against our wishes, remember that there is benefit Allah knows, and we do not know. But what we see in these verses, is that the child who is rebellious to his parents, the child who is rebellious to his parents, was he deserving of life? What happened? His life was taken away. Why? So that he's not a source of hurt and annoyance for his righteous parents? What does this teach us hurting parents? Is that something acceptable?

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

causing them pain? Is that okay? No,

00:08:35--> 00:09:20

causing them grief, this is a same, and it has consequences in this life also. So anytime we feel there's some difficulty in our lives, and we cannot understand why it's happening and what the solution is what the way forward is, think back. Think, How was I to my parents? Did I ever do something to hurt them? If I did? Apologize? Is there something I'm doing that my parents do not like, fix it, and pray for them also pray for the parents also. Because disobedience to parents hurting parents. This is something that has terrible consequences in this life also, it's a major sin. And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and there was beneath it, a

00:09:20--> 00:09:59

treasure for them, and their father had been righteous. So your Lord intended that they reach maturity, and extract their treasure. What do we see over here if the parents are righteous and the children benefit in this life also, regardless of whether they're alive or not? Because these parents were dead, their children were orphans. Remember, we don't protect our children who protect our children. Allah subhanaw taala does. We don't protect our property who does alert us so we have to make a law happy, so that Allah will take care of all of our affairs, all of our affairs, because when we give a law here

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

Help, our ultimate love is Allah subhanaw taala then what will happen he will take care of everything. And this was as a mercy from your Lord. This was Rama, Rama, Tamil, Arabic. And we are always in need of Allah's mercy.

00:10:19--> 00:10:59

Whenever there is a problem, ask a law, how you yoga, you will automatically escalate. I will say they've said I did not do any of this out of my own accord, meaning this is not what I wanted to do what I felt like doing No, I was instructed to do this. And this is why I did it. That is the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience. And you see when the reality comes to light you wonder how foolish you have been for being angry previously for being impatient. So over here, when you see these verses, you look at the anger of Muslims and the frustration How could you kill a boy? How could you make a hole in the ship? You could have taken a payment Masada Sam is

00:10:59--> 00:11:44

so angry and he's justified, apparently. But then in the big picture, when you see why he did what he did, then what happens? You find yourself to be so foolish for being impatient for being angry. So whenever something goes against your desire, what do you have to do? control your tongue over there, be patient over there. Something apparently bad is happening, but it has a good side to it. What is that good side? Allah will bring it about, but wait for it patiently. Why, as an owner, Colonel Colonel, and they ask you about the codename say I will recite to you about him a report, who was the codename he was adjust and fair King. Indeed, we established him upon the earth. And we

00:11:44--> 00:12:32

gave him to everything away, meaning little Carnegie had a very strong kingdom and he had the ability to travel far and wide very easily. So he followed away meaning he went on a journey until when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it as if setting in a spring of dark mud. And he found near it people meaning at sunset he reached a place where the sun was appearing to set in dark, muddy water. And close to it were some people. And these people Allah said or they'll coordinate, either you punish them or adopt among them a way of goodness meaning you have the power if you want you can be good to them if you want, you can punish them. He said as for one who wrongs

00:12:32--> 00:13:12

we will punish him. This is other. This is the justice of the corner he chose justice. Allah gave him the freedom to choose whatever he wanted, either be just or be oppressive. What is it that little Caroline chooses justice, then he will be returned to his Lord, and He will punish him with the terrible punishment. The punishment for him is in this life and the next because what is the codename say I will punish him here. However, this person will go to Allah. And there that is where he will find the real punishment. But as for the one who believes in his righteousness, he will have a reward of paradise. And we will speak to him from our command with ease. Then he followed away he

00:13:12--> 00:13:53

didn't stop there. He didn't say let me retire. Let me have fun now. No, he went on another expedition. Until when he came to the rising of the sun, he came to a place where the sun was rising. He found it rising on a people from whom we had not made against it and he shield. I mean, these people were so poor, they were so backward, they had nothing to protect themselves from the light of the sun. You see, the carnation had a lot of resources, he had a lot of money, a lot of manpower. And what we see is that he did not indulge in the treasures that Allah gave him for his own pleasure. No. rather he used the resources that Allah gave him. He traveled far and wide. Why in

00:13:53--> 00:14:34

order to benefit people, because Alec thus, and we had encompassed all that he had in knowledge, whether he was in the east or in the West, whatever his little cullinane was doing, helping whoever Allah subhanaw taala had encompassed him in knowledge. Then he followed away he went on another expedition, until when he reached a path between two mountains, he found beside them of people who could hardly understand his speech, meaning he came across the people who are completely foreign, completely foreign, he couldn't understand them. They could not understand him. Somehow, they figured out how to communicate. So they said oh, the incarnate India dude and dude are great

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

corrupters in the land meaning over here. Yeah, dude and dude live. So may we assigned for you and expenditure that you might make between us and them a barrier, meaning please make some barrier between us and them. They're creating a lot of facade, save us from the evil and we will pay you. The Canadian said that in which my lord has established me is better meaning I don't need a payment from you.

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

Allah has already given me much. Look, he's not greedy over here. He's not conquering lands or traveling, going to different places for the purpose of oppressing people. The reason why he's traveling everywhere is so that he can help people. So what happens here, when they offer him money, he says what I have already is enough, it is good. And this is the sign of a good leader. He does not focus on receiving, he's focused on giving. And he said, but assist me with strength, meaning I need you to work with me, I will make between you and them a damn. Bring me sheets of iron, until when he had level them between the two mountain walls, he said blow with bellows. And the shows that

00:15:45--> 00:16:31

this fire was not small. Because if pieces of iron are now going to be melted, and these pieces of iron are between mountains, that fire must be huge, huge. Until when he had made it like fire. He said, Bring me that I made pour over it molten copper, you see iron and then molten copper. There's a lot of fire, a lot of fuel being used. What does it show that little codename, he didn't just have the money. He didn't just have the resources, the manpower, but he also had the skills. He was strong in terms of faith, he was morally upright. And he was also strong in a material sense. So what happened when this wall was built when this barrier was built? So yeah, George and Jews were

00:16:31--> 00:17:21

unable to pass over it. nor were they able to effect in it any penetration mean, they couldn't even make a hole in that wall. In order to break it. They couldn't go over it, and they couldn't break through it. So they were locked behind it. Now imagine what a great achievement, they'll cullinane says, said had to be? This is a mercy from my Lord, what humility, such a huge accomplishment, this barrier which is impermeable and unsurpassable what is the commentary, a little codename that this is the mercy of my Lord, I couldn't do it myself. He gives credit to Allah soprano Tada. And this is true servitude to Allah, that no matter what we have done, we remember that we couldn't do it

00:17:21--> 00:18:07

without the help of Allah. No matter what we have accomplished, we realize that it was only possible because Allah enabled us. And remember that Allah has power is always greater. And he said, but when the promise of my Lord will come, he will make it level, he will destroy this wall when alone once this wall will be destroyed, meaning it's not permanent. It's not here forever. Again, look at the humility of the codename. He's done such a huge thing. And what does he say? Oh, it's not going to last forever. And when we do something, what do we want? It should last forever like that. Even if we've just cleaned up the kitchen, what do we want? It should stay clean forever, right? So nobody

00:18:07--> 00:18:50

take a glass out of the kitchen cabinet. Unless you're going to wash it and put it away. We get so upset with people. But look at the colonnade how realistic he is. And this is what keeps a person humble, knowing that whatever I've done, I've done but it's not going to last forever, unless power is always greater And ever is a promise of my Lord true. Now, what is it that this wall will be broken? It is going to happen before the day of judgment, this barrier will break and yet jujin dude will emerge. And this is a sign from the signs of the Day of Judgment. And for everything is a time and for this is also a fixed time. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Yeah, dude, dude make a hole

00:18:50--> 00:19:21

in the wall daily. And when the hole becomes deep enough, so they can see the rays of the sun, meaning they make a hole, they try to break through it. And when they have made a deep enough that they can almost see the other side, they've almost penetrated through it. Their leader says return now and return go back and come tomorrow and you will be able to break the wall tomorrow. So what happens when they come back the following day, they find the wall stronger than before.

00:19:22--> 00:19:59

And the prophets that allows them said this will continue until they reach the end of their term. When Allah will intend to make them prevail over people they will make a hole in it through which they will see the rays of the sun and their leader will say let us return. if Allah wills you will break the wall tomorrow. This time he will say in sha Allah. When they will come the following day they will find the wall as they had left it and they will break the wall and run towards people killing them. They will drink all the water and people will lock themselves up in their fortresses out of the fear of judgment dude, and yet jujin might do too.

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

shoot arrows to the sky that will fall down bloodstained and they will think that we have become dominant over the people of the earth and also the dwellers of the sky. And after this, Allah will cause a beetle to infest their necks, and it will become the cause of the death of all of them. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said by the one who's and is the soul of Mohammed, all the animals, insects of the earth will become strong by eating their flesh and blood. because there'll be so many of them that the beasts of this earth they will consume the bodies off Yeah, dude and dude, so many of them, and May Allah protect us from this fitna.

00:20:37--> 00:21:22

What the look now about loomio my eating your mood up borrowed and we will leave them that day surging over each other. A scene of the Day of Judgment is mentioned here. When goofing off is solely for drama now whom jamara and then the horn will be blown and we will assemble them in one assembly, when the Trumpet will be blown the first time what will happen, all those who are alive on earth will die. And then the Trumpet will be blown the second time and then all people will rise from their graves groups and groups of people, huge crowds, the likes of which do not exist. Unless as over here, your more goofy bow as if surging over each other as if waves were our opener, Johanna

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

yoma, either lil carefree now.

00:21:25--> 00:22:11

And we will present hell that day to the disbelievers on display, meaning on the Day of Judgment, how will be brought so that people will see it, those whose eyes had been within a cover removed from my remembrance, and they were not able to hear. These are the people who do not listen to Allah's word in this life. So what will happen on the Day of Judgment, they will be deaf and blind. They will be deaf and blind. And what is the only thing that they will see Hellfire, then do those who disbelieve think that they can take my servants instead of me as allies. Indeed, we have prepared hell for the disbelievers as a lodging, setting up partners with Allah, God, the only

00:22:11--> 00:22:39

creator, this is a crime. This is the most unjust thing that a person could ever do. Saying that Allah has a partner, when he has in reality, no partner, the entire creation is his creation, the entire dominion is his dominion. And to say that anyone has a share of that. This is great injustice. Think about it as people when we own some property, for example, as women, we own some jewelry.

00:22:40--> 00:23:26

So what if somebody said, Oh, you know what, this ring? I also have a share in that. So yeah, you can wear it a few days, but I need to wear it the rest of the days. Would you accept it? No way, like no way my husband gave it to me or you? I bought it myself. It's not yours, it's mine? Would it be fair, that something is yours? And it is given to somebody else to have a share in? Is that justice? Or is it injustice? It is pure injustice, so ascribing a partner to Allah, whether it is in the form of a child, or a spouse, or an equal, these are all forms of serious crimes. Allah says, say, oh, Prophet, shall we inform you of the greatest losers as to their deeds? Would you like to

00:23:26--> 00:24:11

know who will suffer the most who are most behind in terms of their efforts? Who are they? They are those whose effort is lost in worldly life? Why? Because their efforts revolved around this world, only dunya and only dunya. They slept with the worries of this world. They woke up with the concerns of this world. And all day they spent chasing pursuing the matters of this world only. And while they were living their lives in this way, they were thinking that they were doing well. They were doing good work. They thought that they were doing good stuff. They didn't even think that they were doing something wrong. Those are the ones who disbelieve in the verses of their Lord, and in their

00:24:11--> 00:24:54

meeting him so their deeds have become worthless, and we will not assign to them on the Day of Resurrection, any importance. Look at this ayah those who strive only for this world for getting the asset out What does Allah say, on the day of judgment? Will they have any reward? No. Will they have any way of earning the pleasure of Allah? No way? What will be the worst of their deeds? Nothing. Why? What was their fault? They rejected a loss if they rejected a loss, I asked why? Because the success of this world was more important to them. They wanted to do what they wanted to do. They didn't want to care about Hillel and how long the laws that Allah has revealed the rights and the

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

wrongs know. for them. What was their ultimate goal. The pleasure

00:25:00--> 00:25:31

The Pursuit of Happiness were in this world and for that they were willing to give up anything. Just think about it. Just imagine, reflect on the fact that there will be a time when we will be standing before our Lord, without any interpreter, without any helper in the middle, before us the fire and on our right and our left our deeds and the full authorities with Allah, if he wants, he can forgive and if he wants, he can punish. What would we want at that time?

00:25:33--> 00:25:38

What would we desire at that time? Allah's forgiveness, his pleasure?

00:25:39--> 00:26:19

So if we wanted then we have to work for it right now. We have to do those things because of which Allah will forgive us. We have to do those actions because of which Allah will be pleased with us. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, on the Day of Resurrection, a huge man will come and he will be placed on the scale or this huge man will come and you will have no weight, not even the weight of the wing of a mosquito in the sight of Allah. in the sight of Allah that man's worth is not even like that of a mosquitoes wing.

00:26:20--> 00:27:03

Not even that much. And the prophets Allah loves them then recited this ayah philanthropy mula Hoon yo malkia Mati was now we will not assign to them on the Day of Resurrection, any importance meaning their deeds will have no value in the sight of Allah, they will have no value in the sight of Allah, then who are the ultimate losers? No matter what they did in this world, it didn't make it to the era that is their recompense hell for what they denied. And because they took my signs and my messengers in ridicule, on the contrary, Indeed, those who have believed and unrighteous deeds, they will have the gardens of Paradise as a lodging wherein they abide eternally, they will not desire

00:27:03--> 00:27:42

from it any transfer. They'll never ever be bored in Jana. liable Hunan her havila Have you ever experienced this, that you are doing something and you're enjoying it a lot, and you don't want it to end? especially children are like that, when they go somewhere? Like, for example, the park and you tell them it's time to go home? No way. They're thirsty. They need to go to the bathroom. They're hungry. They're tired. Their eyes are closing because they're sleepy. But do they want to leave the park? No way. They don't want to leave the park. But then what happens? Eventually, they surrender. They give up. Why? Because they cannot enjoy any more. They don't have the capacity to

00:27:42--> 00:28:29

enjoy any more. In general, there is only pleasure. So much. So that lay of aluna on her. He wanna they will not desire from it any transfer? And what do people think? How will people live in general forever? Won't they get bored? Well, do you ever get bored when you're having fun? You never get bored. When you're having fun. Say, if the C word ink for writing the words of my Lord, and the sea would be exhausted before the words of my Lord were exhausted. If the sea were ink for writing the words of my Lord, the sea would be exhausted before the words of my Lord were exhausted. Even if we brought the like of it as a supplement. Say, I am only a man like you, to whom has been revealed

00:28:29--> 00:29:15

that your God is one God. So whoever would hope for the meeting with his Lord, the one who knows that one day he will stand before his Lord and He wants that meeting to go well, then what does he have to do? Let him do right just work and not associate in the worship of his Lord, anything. Do things are mentioned over here? First of all, folia Milan, Milan solly. Han, not that he should do armelle of just this world of fun of enjoyment, so that the end of 40 years What does he have nothing to take with him to the alcohol, no failure, Milan, Milan salia. If we want to make it to gender, if we want a lot to be happy, we have to work for it. We have to strive for it. We have to

00:29:15--> 00:29:46

do something. And secondly, when I use Shrek very bad at europea hada. He should not associate in the worship of his Lord anyone at all, meaning any good deed that he does, he should do it with sincerity with his loss only for Allah to make him happy. Allah should be his Illa Mark booth. And he should do everything that he does for the sake of Allah for his love out of his fear, having hope of his reward, and this is sort of a hamdulillah
