Juz’ 16: Al-Kahf 75-110 – Ta-Ha
Allah said, and what made you hasten from your people almost.
He said they're close upon my tracks were due to a lack of belief. And I hasten to you, My Lord, that you'll be pleased. You'll be pleased. Think about it. What do we do in order to become pleasing to other people in order to become acceptable to them? How much exercise and walk and you know, food that's difficult to even choose, but we'll eat it just to be healthy just to be more acceptable and pleasing to people. I remember once this lady told me that she does this detox every now and then in which she drinks oil, olive oil, only olive oil. I don't know how she does it. And she said that for the best can ever you have to have two liters of water first thing in the morning. I'm like,
she's like I do it. I've been doing it. I don't know how she does it. But just think about how much we do and how quickly we do. Why just to become more acceptable to people to look good in their eyes. musala sam, what was his concern? Where I do la gonna be later?
Do we want to become pleasing to Allah? It's only possible if we leave our laziness. Allah said, but indeed, we have tried here, people after you departed, and somebody has led them astray. So Moosa returned to his people angry and grieved. He said, Oh my people, did your Lord, not make you a good promise? That was the time of its fulfillment too long for you? Or did you wish the wrath from your Lord descend upon you? So you broke your promise of obedience to me because this is when they worship the calf. They said, We did not break our promise to you by our will. They made an excuse. We were just made to carry burdens from the ornaments of the people of our own we had so much gold,
we didn't know what to do with it. So we throw it into the fire and dusted Sammy throw. And with that gold, he extracted for them the statue of a calf, which had a lowing sound, because it was hollow from inside and they said, this is your God and the God of Musa, but he forgot. Meaning This is your God and the God of Moosa, but Moosa forgot to tell you how Allah says, Did they not see that that calf could not return to them any speech? Yes, it made a sound, but anything that make us sound anything all look and make a sound when you blow wind through it,
it could not return to them any speech, and that it did not possess for them any harm or benefit. And Harun had already told them before the return of Moosa that all my people you are only being tested by it. And indeed, your Lord is the Most Merciful, so follow me and obey my order. They said, We will never cease being devoted to the calf until Moosa returns to us musar listen and said, Oh, how long? What prevented you when you saw them going astray from following me? Then? Have you disobeyed my order? So he's upset with one Arneson and why didn't you stop the bunny aside from worshiping the calf, when our listener said, Oh, son of my mother, do not sees me by my beard, or by
my head? Indeed, I feared that you would say you cause division among the children of Israel, and you did not observe or wait my word, masala Salam said, and what is your case or samedi? Somebody said, I saw what they did not see. So I took a handful of dust from the track of the messenger and threw it and dusted my soul enticed me. So he made this up over here or he actually did it. Allahu Allah musar Listen, I'm said then go. And indeed it is decreed for you in this life to say lamb he says, no contact, touch me not touch me not. This was the punishment of samory in this world and this life, and indeed you have an appointment in the hereafter you will not fail to keep he was
punished in this world and there is punishment of the hereafter. And look at your God, this idol that you made to which you remain devoted, we will surely burn it and blow it into the sea with a blast. Allah says in Nima Allahu como la, your God is only Allah except for whom there is no deity. He has encompassed all things in knowledge. What's the summary? What's the lesson? Allah is one, no other God with him besides him other than Him. And we also see over here most are this an EMS personality who don't have the time is older than him. But the younger one has more authority over his people. In Haruna, Islam he tried stopping the people but at one point we learned the Quran that
they almost killed him. So he had to stop. So mozzarella Salaam, even though his tongue was unclear, he was not able to speak very clearly. But still, Allah chose him to go to fit our own. Thus we relate to you from the news of what has proceeded And We have certainly given you from us a reminder which reminder that whoever turns away from it, then indeed, he will bear on the Day of Resurrection, a burden abiding eternally there in an evil it is for them on the Day of Resurrection as a load, burdensome painful load, the day the horn will be blown, and we will gather the criminals that day a blue eyed stoned, they will murmur among themselves. You remained not but 10 days in the
world, life in this world will seem so short on
The Day of Judgment, we are most knowing of what they say when the best of them in manner will say you remained not but one day and they ask you about the mountains say, My Lord will blow them away with a blast to this earth will become flat and he will leave the earth a level plane, you will not see they're in a depression or an elevation. That day everyone will follow the call of the caller with no deviation there from an all voices will be stilled before the Most Merciful, so you will not hear except a whisper of footsteps that day. No intercession will benefit except that of one to whom the Most Merciful has given permission, and has accepted his word, meaning no one can intercede
except with Allah's permission, alone knows what is presently before them, and what will be after them, but they do not encompass it in knowledge. And all faces will be humbled before the ever living the Sustainer of existence, and he will have failed who carries injustice. So if any burden of injustice is on our shoulders today, let's beg Allah for forgiveness, but he who does a righteous deeds while he is a believer, he will neither fear injustice nor deprivation. And thus we have sent it down as an Arabic Quran and have diversified there in the warnings that perhaps perhaps they will avoid sin or it would cause them remembrance. So high above all is Allah, Allah Malik will help the
sovereign the truth and oh prophet do not hasten with recitation of the Quran before its revelation is completed to you and say, we'll call Rob busy Dini.
say, Oh, my lord increased me in knowledge, who has been commanded the Prophet sallallahu wasallam What did Allah want for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam more in? So what is it that we should like for ourselves? More in? And if the Prophet has been told Sarah visit near Alma. That means there is always more to learn. And from the story of Masada Sam, what do we learn? No matter how much you know, there's always more to learn. One or the other are hidden. Isla de mermin, kaaboo fantasea, wollam Nigella who are asthma. And we had already taken a promise from Adam before, but he forgot, and we found not in him determination. Adam alayhis salam, a Lost Planet Allah created him, warned
him of who his enemy was made clear to him what he was allowed to do and what he was not allowed to do. And what happened fantasea but other Marley's Salaam forgot, well, I'm Nadia, della, who are asthma and we did not find in him determination, meaning he did not have the determination to disobey Allah. What happened? The mistake that he made was accidental. It was out of forgetfulness, and mentioned when we said to the angels, Prostrate to Adam, and they're frustrated, except Iblees. He refused. So we said, Oh, Adam, indeed, this is an enemy to you and to your wife, then let him not remove you from Paradise. So you would suffer, meaning if you leave Jenna, you would be in a lot of
suffering, which means that life outside of Jenna is a life full of suffering and problems and work. Allah said that indeed, it is promised for you meaning engine, not to be hungry, they're in or be unclothed. And indeed, you will not be thirsty, they're in or be hot from the sun, which means that in this world, this will happen, that a person will feel hungry, there will be times when he will feel that his clothes are not sufficient. They're not enough he needs more clothes, he needs newer ones. And there are times when a person is thirsty. There are times when a person feels hot, perfection, and absolute comfort is only where engender so Allah subhanaw taala told Adam, value
this place, don't let JSON remove you from this place. Then shavon whisper to him. He said, Oh, Adam, shall I direct you to the tree of eternity and possession that will not deteriorate. And Adam and his wife ate of it. They listened to shapeless, they forgot what Allah had worn them off. And what happened, the luxuries of gender, the honor of gender was taken away from them. And so their private parts became apparent to them, because part of what they were blessed in gender was the clothing of gender. So when they were removed from gender, the first thing that happened was that their clothing agenda was taken away which exposed them and this is something that embarrassed them.
So they began to fasten over themselves from the leaves of paradise. You see, this is within human nature to cover the body to not be exposed. And little children also, they're very concerned about covering themselves up and what happens gradually, gradually, their higher, it goes away. And Adam disobeyed his Lord and he earned where I saw the moral buffo
we disobey Allah, then what will happen? Then his Lord chose him and turned to him and forgiveness and guided him, meaning this was not the end of his story. And this should not be the end of our story either. That just because we disobeyed Allah, that is it. No if we have disobeyed Allah than what is necessary, what should be the next step, seeking forgiveness from Allah. So Allah chose Adam, Allah said descend from Paradise, all your descendants being enemies to one another, meaning men and jinn being enemy to each other. And if they should come to you guidance from me, then whoever follows my guidance will neither go astray in the world nor suffer in the hereafter. So we
see that in general also Adam are listening was only guaranteed protection, until he obeyed Allah. When he disobeyed Allah He followed shake on what happened, he was sent away from Jenna, likewise in this world, when Are we safe? We are safe as long as we remain obedient to Allah, woman or another and victory for in Allah whom are Isha and Blanca, and whoever turns away from my remembrance, then indeed, he will have a depressed life. Whoever turns away from remembering Allah. And how is it that a person remembers Allah through his the spear through his Vicar so when a person does not engage in the remembrance of Allah, then what happens? He will live a depressed, difficult, sad life. And
also, the query over here refers to the Quran, Allah kalau his advice, his instruction, the message that he has sent. So the person who lives his life without the Quran, can he ever be truly happy? Can he know according to this ayah, he will never be happy, he will face various problems and worries and the greatest of that is the one which is going to be on the Day of Judgment, and we will gather him on the Day of Resurrection, blind, why, because this poor on his light, and the one who follows this light, then his eyes will also have vision, he will also be able to see what is right what is wrong, what he should say, what he should not say he will have clarity. And when a person
leaves this light, he chooses darkness in this world, then in the hereafter also, he will be in darkness, how that he will be raised blind, because he forgot a lot here. He will be forgotten their color of Bielema Shelton, he was called controversy era, he will say, Oh my Lord, why have you raised me blind while I was one seeing? I could see in the world My eyes used to function properly. How come they don't function today? Allah will say, Gallic attacker Aya tuna fantasy to her workaholic Leo matanza, thus did our science come to you, and you forgot them, you closed your eyes to my book, you did not even look at my book, you did not even pay attention to what I sent to you,
you were too busy for it, you had other priorities. So today, you will be neglected, you will be forgotten.
So what do we learn from these is that first and foremost, the Book of Allah, it deserves our attention. It deserves our time. Each and every one of us must, must take out time for the book of Allah subhanaw taala it is not sufficient to just read it once to study it once. Rather, this is a lifelong effort that a person remains connected with the book of Allah, He keeps looking at the book of Allah because the more he looks at the book of a lot, the more he sees himself, the more he sees the reality of this world. And once a person closes his eyes to the book of Allah, He says, I know enough coluna Wolf, my heart is covered, I have sufficient enough. In my heart, I don't need any
more than what happens that light is taken away, and a person is left in darkness. And so he commits sins, and he does not even realize he's committing errors, and he does not even realize he's going farther and farther away from Allah, and he doesn't even see his deviation. And this is the greatest danger a person could be in that a person does not even recognize the air that he is living in. So the connection with the Koran is a lifelong connection. When a person leaves it when a person abandons the book of Allah, then we see in this ayah, that he too will be abandoned on the Day of Judgment, he too will be neglected on the Day of Judgment. Secondly, what we see in this ayah is
that it is necessary that when a person does memorize the Book of Allah, or study its meanings or reads it then he must not forget it. He must put in effort in order to remember what he wants learnt. Because Is it easy to forget things that we have learned? Is it it's very easy. What happens in exam week everything is at the tip of your fingers and what happens Two weeks later
You're asked the same questions and you're like, let me check my book. Let me check my notes, right. Why? Because we learned those things for the purpose of the exam once the exam was over our brain, put all that information aside. Now the Quran is not just information or knowledge that has to be learned, it has to be implemented. And for that it must always be fresh in your mind, and it cannot be fresh in your mind if you studied it two weeks ago, if you studied it two years ago, it is necessary that a person keeps reviewing it, reading it, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that when a person memorizes the Quran, then the meaning of the Hadees is if he does not continue to review
it, then it escapes from him as quickly as a camel that is not riddled a camel that is not tied. What will happen to that camel, you can easily lose it, right. And as long as a person reviews the Quran in the night prayer, he will continue to remember it. And when a person stops reviewing the Quran, he will forget it. And this is true with respect to the ayat of the Quran. And this is true with respect to the meaning of the earth also, it is not enough to just study it and say yes, check mark, I have done this job. No, it's a lifelong connection with the book of Allah. So a person must try his best to never ever stop his to discontinue his connection with the book of Allah. However it
may be whether it is on a regular consistent basis once a week how, however frequently, but a person must strive must endeavor to remain connected with the book of Allah, because this is the only way of salvation and thus do We recommend he who transgressed and did not believe in the signs of his Lord, and the punishment of the Hereafter is more severe and more enduring. Because in this life a person suffers when he leaves the book of Allah. However, the suffering of the Day of Judgment, Allah says that is severe and more enduring. Just imagine the embarrassment. Just imagine the embarrassment that a person is made to realize that you forgot the book of Allah, you left the book
of Allah, just imagine coming on the Day of Judgment blind, then has it not become clear to them, how many generations we destroyed before them as they walk among their dwellings? Indeed, and that are Signs for those of intelligence. And if not for a word that proceeded from your Lord. punishment would have been an obligation due immediately, and if not for a specified term that was decreed. So if we are given a chance to live to continue, then this is solely This is entirely Allah's mercy upon us, because our sins are such that they don't make us worthy of even the next breath. spouse better Allah May or Kowloon, so be patient over what they say, What's up, baby, handle up big and
exalt Allah, with praise of your Lord, when Avila todo shamcey wakaba la hora, Bihar before the rising of the sun, and before it's setting women Anna La Liga, sub B. And during periods of the night exalt Him will upload often. And at the ends of the day, unlock a total door so that you may be satisfied. We think satisfaction comes from eating, satisfaction comes from sleeping. satisfaction comes from being with your friends, true satisfaction comes from what, from fulfilling the purpose of your life from reconnecting with the one who made you? And how is that possible through worship, through prayer, through remembrance, and over here, that's exactly what we are
instructed to do that first of all, subject behind Europe, first of all, be patient. And secondly, do this be meaning sensitive handle law, you will be happy when before the sun rises and before the sunsets. And remember that this beer is not just, you know, saying Subhan Allah Subhana Allah with our mount, it's about really thinking about Allah subhanaw taala thinking about his greatness, reminding yourself that perfect is my Lord, all capable he is and he can solve my problems and he can take me out of difficulty. And this is why early in the morning when we wake up when our mind is filling up graduating with the worries and concerns of this life. And at the end of the day again as
we are stressing out because nothing got done. What is it that we need to engage in, in the remembrance of Allah, especially in the morning in the evening? sapan Allah He will be handy he also Subhana Allah 100 in La La ilaha illAllah Allahu Akbar because these four statements are the words that Allah subhanaw taala has chosen, he has selected and then also La ilaha illAllah who was the hula Sri kala, the whole koala who were who are the coalition in Cali, and saying these accounts should be our habit. Because the person who remembers Allah, then what does Allah say La La Cava. You will be pleased. You will find happiness, contentment here
And you will also be happy where in the next life, Allah will keep you safe. And also what we see here is that the Spirit is not just glorification in the form of words, but also glorification in the form of Sala because Salah is also called this V alright so that is also called this B. In the Hadees, we learned many references where solida is being mentioned and instead of the word Salah, this V is mentioned in a hadith we learned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that he who observes prayer before the rising of the sun, and it's setting which two prayers are these fudger and
then he would not enter Hellfire, the person who's regular with these two prayers, then he will not enter Hellfire la laka toda la, you will be pleased.
And also women and a lady for sub B, what are often in the hours of the night also when you wake up, then what should be done this we had to be done. There is a card in the bookstore by the name of what to say a time of extreme hunger and thirst, intense hunger and thirst. Because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam whenever he would wake up in the night, and he would turn his side because of thirst because of hunger, then he would say that they could also La ilaha illAllah. who and why hidden? Right? There's a lot there is no data about him. And why the one alcohol the irresistible. So this draw a person must save the nighttime also. And this shows to us that in the night when
we're awake. All right, waiting for the time of the hood, or we're preparing so who then what should we do at that time be grouchy and angry, no woman and a lady for sub B glorify Allah at that time also, while atomo deny Nika, illa materna v as well as your main home, and do not extend your eyes toward that by which we have given enjoyment to some categories of people, meaning do not look at what people have been given, do not look at their money at their riches at their possessions. Don't look at that. Why? Because then you will remember these things. When you're trying to remember Allah.
You will remember these things when you're standing in prayer, even in Salah. Then, if in Salah you will not be able to remember a lot than when is it that you will remember Allah? So don't even look at these things. Because when you look at something, then what happens? does it stay in your mind? It stays in your mind? Can you recall that image anytime? Yes, you can. And sometimes those images are appearing in your mind. And you don't want to think about them. But they keep coming. Isn't that so those replays, they keep happening. There's no stop button there. There's no delete button in your brain, right. So be careful about what you look at. Don't look at the things of other people,
because then you will forever remain unsatisfied with what you have. You will never find contentment in life, you will be unhappy, you'll be miserable. And remember that whatever people have, it is only the splendor of worldly life by which we test them. This is only a test that they have been put in. If you see a person with some physical disability, do you really look at their disability? Do you really stare at it? No. What do you do? Generally, you look away, you pretend as if you didn't even see them? Isn't it? Like if a person is in the hospital, they have a big wound somewhere, or they are in a very terrible physical condition. You go in and you visit them, but you don't keep
looking at their wounds you don't. Why? Because it's disturbing to even look at it.
Because they are being tested. Allah tells us over here that the people who have been given the riches of this world, even they are being tested, that is also a test. So don't look at it. Don't look at it, otherwise you will be unhappy. And the provision of your Lord is better and more enduring. What you should really be striving towards is the provision that Allah has promised in the hereafter for his servants. Once a piece of silk and cloth was brought to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam very precious silk material, all right, and it was in the masjid. These were some gifts that that somebody had sent for a sort of lawful aligners Allah and the people they kept coming. And they
kept touching that, that silk, they couldn't help it. They looked at it, it looked so beautiful. They couldn't help it. They kept going to it and they kept touching it. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Are you amazed at it? Do you like it? And they said yes, or last messenger. We really like it. It's pretty good. It's amazing. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said by him in his hand, my soul is the handkerchief of sod.
dilla Horton who in general is better than this? Because odds are the lower and who was as a hobby who had died in the way of Allah. He was one of the leaders of the unsought. He was killed at the Battle of 100. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the handkerchief that he's been given in general, that is better than the silk that you cannot help us touch. So what is ora beaker? Hi, the provision of your Lord is much better. So ask Allah for that. And enjoin prayer upon your family. Tell your family to pray, also enjoying you're enjoying the prayer upon your family. What does this mean? That we cannot just worry about our own prayers. We also have to remind our family members to pray. We
have to encourage sometimes the men in our family, the husband, the brother, the son, to go and pray in the masjid. What more luck of his salah and especially if we are in that position to tell somebody to pray, then we must tell them to pray, you know, what is that we don't have that kind of position, but as a mother, right, as a very loving mother, you may have that kind of relationship with your son that if you tell him something, he's gonna listen to you. So when you tell him to go and do groceries for you, also tell him where to go pray in the masjid. Right. go pray that are we in the masjid? It's only a few nights in Ramadan, just a few nights, right? encourage them, motivate
them, help them and at home also was sobre la.
And you also be steadfast in it yourself. Meaning you have to force yourself to pray on time and pray regularly, consistently. Also, you see this word was terrible, it is forbidden to force yourself to be patient. Because sometimes it's easy to get up and pray. But other times like these nights, what happens after Mazel Tov you just want to sleep. Alright, so just pull yourself a little bit that no, I'm gonna go tonight or if you're not able to go then I'm going to pray at home for sure. What's the limit our labor, force yourself a little bit, convince yourself and once you make up your mind, then inshallah the body will also cooperate. learners, Luca is or we do not ask you
for any provision. Meaning when we pray horn of a benefiting Allah, we provide for you, you benefit from us. And the best outcome is for those of righteousness. And they say, Why does he not bring us a sign from his Lord? Has there not come to them evidence of what was in the former scriptures meeting? Is this Koran less of a miracle? That an unlettered prophet has conveyed a book that comprehensively mentions the themes of the previous scriptures? Isn't this enough of a miracle? What other miracle besides this are they asking for? And if we had destroyed them with a punishment before him, they would have said Our Lord, why did you not send to us a messenger so we could have
followed your verses before we were humiliated and disgraced. Say, each of us is waiting so wait for satara Allah Muna menos horrible slaughter Sophie, we Omani data, for you will know who are the companions of the sound path and who is guided. So what do we learn here that a person must continue to work to strive in the way of Allah and it is Allah decision to reveal the truth whenever he pleases. There is a time when a person does not want to accept the truth but then a time comes when the truth is established. such that it is undeniable that it is impossible to reject it. So out of fear of people do not stop the good that you have started. Be firm the prophets of the lesson is
being advised over here that even though people reject you remain firm and you keep conveying and what's the lesson for us that once we have started something good, then is slumping or they do not stop rather continue to panic a lot more we handpick a Chateau La ilaha illa Anta esta hirokawa to win a Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
