I said I'm already Kumara Matala, he will Barakatuhu

00:00:37 --> 00:00:56

our other Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim rubbish raha Saudi were silly emri wa Hello the rock data melissani yufka who Kali Allah who made the call me was that deadly Sonny was also him at the Colby I mean you're but I mean

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

so it'll cost us inshallah Today we will begin from verse number 60. Allah subhanaw taala says, Well Oh Tito min Shay in fermata will hire the dunya was Xena to her woman Oh, Tito min Cheyenne. And whatever thing you people have been given, whatever it is, that you have been given, then it is from a towel higher to dunya then it is only for the enjoyment of worldly life was Xena to her and it is its adornment. So what you have is just something that is benefiting you in worldly life. And yes, it is also something that you find attractive you find beautiful or you beautify yourselves with and warmer in the light is higher on whatever car and what is with Allah, that is better and it is more

00:02:00 --> 00:02:24

lasting. So when that is the case, then a fella * loon Will you not use reason? Will you not pay attention, think about this matter, and give preference to what is everlasting, give preference to what is eternal and make that your goal instead of pursuing what is temporary, and what is meant to finish.

00:02:25 --> 00:03:16

So in this verse, we are being taught about the reality of this world. In the previous verses, we learnt about the people of Makkah, how it was the fear of losing worldly benefits that prevented them from believing in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they expressed their fear that if we were to believe that we would lose out on what we have, or that people will, you know, they will attack us and they will not, you know, we will lose our glory. Basically, they were afraid of losing their dunya if they were to believe. So, in this verse, we are reminded of the reality of this life, that one will teach them in shy in and whatever it is that you have been given ot tune this is from

00:03:16 --> 00:04:05

ether and ether is to give something so whatever it is that you have been given, then a min Shay in anything at all, meaning whatever it is that you have been given in this world, right, whether it is your wealth, or it is your health, or it is your family, or your status, your education, your accomplishments, the investments that you have been made, that you have made, the cars that you own, or the shoes that you own, the smaller the big things, whatever that you have been given. And really the list goes on. Because the fact is that if we were to start counting the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given us we would not be able to enumerate them. So everything that you have been

00:04:05 --> 00:04:59

given presently in worldly life, all of this is what it is from a thorough hyah. To do. Nia was Xena to her two things. It is matar of worldly life. And it is Xena to her it's Xena. Two words have been used over here to describe the reality of this world. The first word is matar and what is Mata matar is from the root letters mean to rain. And matar is basically something that is useful, something that is of benefit, something that you enjoy, but it is meant to be temporary, meaning it's not meant to last forever. This is the very meaning of the word Mater, that it is a source of benefit and enjoyment, but it is temporary. Like for example, any tools that you have right

00:05:00 --> 00:05:48

Any any baggage that you have or any, any utensils you have, for example in your kitchen, right, you know that they're not they're not meant to last forever. Right? These are things that you use. These are, you know the good things of this life necessities of this life. And yes, your life is comfortable because of these things, but they are after all matar. So this means that they are temporary, they're not going to last forever. And then, secondly, this dunia has been described as or worldly life the things that we have in worldly life are described as Xena and Xena is adornment, beautification. Meaning the things of this life Yes, their abundance and their niceness. It

00:05:48 --> 00:06:42

beautifies you right or you find it beautiful. But if you think about it, the nature of adornment is that it is not meant to stay. Right? decoration is such adornment and beautification is such that it is not meant to stay forever, right? And also when it comes to decoration, or beautification, you know that it is just been put on, right? It's it's not the reality of something. It just looks nice. Like for example, when it comes to makeup, right layers of makeup are put on but then what? Are they left to stay on the skin forever? No, it's it's meant to be wiped off. It's meant to be washed down. Right go down the drain. That's the reality. Right? fancy clothes even no matter how long you wear

00:06:42 --> 00:07:37

them, eventually. You You have to put them away. Right? decorations also, they're meant to be removed. Flowers die, so matar Yes. The things of this life? You need them to live? Yes, you enjoy them? And yes, they make your life comfortable. And yes, their abundance? It beautifies you or it looks beautiful to you? And yes, you know, these are the things of this world. Yes, when you have them, you do look, you know more beautiful. But the fact is that these things are not going to transfer with you into the next life. These things are not going in the grave with you, these things are not going to show up on the day of judgment and beautify you, right, and make you and be of

00:07:37 --> 00:08:28

benefit to you know, their benefit. And their beautification is limited to this world and this world, only, these things are not going to save you ultimately on the Day of Judgment, they're not going to protect you. They're not going to beautify you on the Day of Judgment. So this is the nature of worldly life, that the that their enjoyment is little right? And you have them temporarily, their beautification is temporary, and their beautification is also very little. Right? So this is this is the nature of of this world. Any delicious food even, right? you swallow it and Doug colosse right, while you have it in your mouth, you're enjoying all those flavors and textures.

00:08:28 --> 00:08:55

And yes, you know, it's it's a, it's a good experience, but it's so short lived, within a few moments you swallow and that's it. All right, the latest phone even right you have it, it looks good for a couple of weeks. And then it's the older version, right? Because now a newer version is out. So the things of the world, they don't remain beautiful or beneficial for long.

00:08:56 --> 00:09:41

Meaning their beauty decays very quickly, it goes away very quickly. And their benefit also goes away, it declines very quickly. And this is for a number of reasons. One is that first of all, the nature of worldly things is that they're not supposed to be permanent. You have the most beautiful tree even it's going to eventually die, you have the most beautiful flower, it's going to eventually die. The most beautiful season even comes to an end when the snow falls. At first it looks beautiful, but then after you know just a few hours even you see how it becomes slushy and it becomes so messy. So this is the nature of the world. And then the other thing is that we are not

00:09:41 --> 00:09:59

meant to live in this world forever. We are not meant to have these things forever. Our relationship with these things is also temporary. So from a thermal hire to dunya was enough to her. So then the question is why trace it when you know

00:10:00 --> 00:10:03

That ultimately it's going to leave you, right? This is like,

00:10:05 --> 00:10:59

you know, if a person is pursuing the world making worldly things, their ultimate goal and concern, they're obsessing over them, they want these things at all costs. You know, they, they, it's their, it's their number one priority. This is like entering a relationship with the certainty of divorce, right, you know that it's going to end. This is like leasing a car, knowing that it's not yours to keep staying in a hotel room, knowing that this is not your permanent home. So this is the reality of the world, that it has been leased to us, right? It's just been given to us. And remember this, it has been given to us, it's not ours, it has been given to us, it's not ours to keep. So from a

00:10:59 --> 00:11:46

thermal hire to dunya was Xena to her. So then, what does this mean? This means that we should continuously detach our hearts from the world. And we should live with this caution. Don't fool yourself into thinking that no, my heart is not attached to the world, know the dunya, the worldly life is indeed very attractive, it is very deceptive. The most intelligent of people even get deceived by it, right. So we have to consciously detach our heart from the world. And this is this is a continuous effort. And you do that in a number of ways. You do that by constantly reminding yourself that this world is temporary, these things are temporary, right? You also do that by

00:11:46 --> 00:12:36

constantly giving some other clock. So when the dunya and its benefits are temporary, then then it also means that we should not chase permanence and perfection in the world. Meaning do not make make worldly things, your ultimate concern, and your worry and your obsession that I need to fix this and I need to have this and I should have this and poor me because I don't have this or I don't have that. No, we have to bring ourselves out of the cycle, that do not always be chasing worldly things, fulfilling every desire. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I stood at the gate of Paradise, and saw that the majority of the people who entered it were poor, while the wealthy were

00:12:36 --> 00:13:26

detained at the gates, meaning the people who lived with worldly wealth, they were detained at the gate of Paradise meaning for his up, they didn't enter immediately. It was a it was more difficult process for them to get through. In another Hades, we learned that the poor are admitted into paradise before the rich by 500 years, any This is the real formal that we need to have. Can you imagine missing out of those 500 years and Jenna Subhan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said that an axon hormone is falloon an axon meaning the people who have more, they will be the lowest on the Day of Judgment, except those who do such and such with their money. And the

00:13:26 --> 00:14:10

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pointed towards four directions in front of him behind him to his right and to his left. And what he meant was, except for those who are constantly giving from their wealth, right, to those who are before them, those on their right, those on their left, those are those behind the money constantly, they're giving from their wealth on the such wealthy people will be saved on the Day of Judgment. So, it is necessary that we don't forget what is coming because of what we have right now. Because we think that you know, given our present condition, things are good, you know, we have you know, enough, etc. We think that our last panel thought is

00:14:10 --> 00:14:44

pleased with us we have that assumption, right that I must be a good person, I must be doing what is right because of which I have all of these good things, right. And this is a false belief, right? This is a false assumption. Because remember one that will teach you, whatever that you have been given this has Allah subhanaw taala has distribution and that is based on his wisdom. And that is, you know, it's whatever we have been given. It is basically for a test it this is not a place of reward.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:59

Also, it's important that we, you know, have that mindset of a traveler. We should remember that we're not staying here forever, because it is matar right, it is temporary enjoyment. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:15:00 --> 00:15:49

What do I have to do with the world? Beating? What what concern Am I supposed to have with the world? There's nothing you know, the world and me any we have nothing to do with each other. And he said, I am not in the world except as a writer, except as a traveler who is seeking shade under a tree. And then he catches his breath and leaves it. So think about it, you're going on a road trip, you stop somewhere, right? You feel gas in your car, you go get your coffee, maybe use the bathroom, etc. And then you continue. So the the pitstop that you make, that's not your home, right? That that's not your destination. And just like that the world is not our real home. It is not our

00:15:49 --> 00:16:06

destination. It's just a pitstop. Right? So live with this mindset. And this is why Yes, we are in this world, yes, we have been given all of these blessings, but we should remember that, that we have another place to go to, that is our real home.

00:16:07 --> 00:16:56

So for example, if you if you go to, you know, if you stop at a gas station, and you'll find the best, you know, a very clean bathroom, you're not going to make that bathroom your own No way. In fact, you're going to be extremely careful, you might not even use it, right? If it if it comes to food or a place to sit again, you're going to be you're not going to be like yeah, this is my dining room, you know, this is perfect, no, you know that it is a, you know, a temporary stop. So we need to live with that mindset, that let us not make this world our ultimate concern and our ultimate goal and that we're constantly obsessing over you know, having more and having better over here and

00:16:56 --> 00:17:43

because of that, we neglect our duty to Allah and we neglect the home of the Hereafter, that is the real home that we need to prepare for. And also while in this life, we should seek them with our you know, the the enjoyment, that will actually help us in, in what is to come. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, that a dunya matoran that the world is a matar meaning it is an enjoyment it is a source of temporary enjoyment, meaning whatever you have here, yes, it is useful. Yes, it you know, makes your life comfortable. Yes, it is a source of delight. But he said, A dunya Metatron Well, hieromartyr, a dunya almara to solea. But the best,

00:17:44 --> 00:18:27

you know, thing of benefit in this life or the best of this life that that's a source of benefit for you. That's a source of you know, good company for you is Alma to Solihull, a righteous woman. And of course, he was addressing men over here, the same thing, you know, goes for women that when you're seeking a companion, right, make sure that they are a righteous person. Why because when when they are going to be a righteous person that's going to help you in your journey that's going to help you focus on your destination. But if you surround yourself with people whose whose goal is this dunia, and I'm not talking again, just about your immediate family, it could also be you know,

00:18:27 --> 00:19:10

the people that you hang out with the people that you constantly look at on your screen, right, going through their feed, looking at what they're wearing now and what they wore yesterday and what they're promoting today and how they did their makeup yesterday and and what they've taught, you know, two weeks before any if if you're obsessing if you're just surrounding yourself with people who are focused on the dunya for whom this dunya is all that matters, the laws that Allah subhanaw taala has given they're not important to them, then this is a huge mistake. Because Allah subhanaw taala tells us women are in the law higher on what what is with Allah is better and more lasting. If

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

Allah darklord Will you not use reason? Will you not think? So? What Allah has, what does this mean what are in the law, this is referring to the reward that Allah subhanaw taala has reserved in the hereafter for later and he has not given that right now to us in worldly life is what Allah has reserved in the home of eternity. But for who, for those that he is pleased with, and that reward is heightened, whatever call it is height, it is better, meaning it is more enjoyable than the enjoyment of this world. It is more beautiful than the beauty of this world. And it is America. It is endless. It is it is a

00:20:00 --> 00:20:49

more lasting, meaning it is perpetual, it is permanent. It's never ending, it's never going to run out. And it is such that people will never be bored from it, even though they're going to remain agenda forever. They're never going to get bored and tired of gender. Because women are in the law higher on whatever. It is better in terms of its its quality, its nature, and it has other costs in terms of its quantity. So, the the life of the hereafter in Jenna, any the blessings are permanent, and that life is, is a life of safety, right? A life of abundance, a life of eternity. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this world, in comparison with the Hereafter, is similar to

00:20:49 --> 00:21:40

the amount of water that one gets when he puts his finger in the sea. Let him look at what what it returns with. Any when you're when you dip your finger in the ocean? How much water do you think you're going to take out of the ocean? How much water is there on the tip of your finger? It's literally a drop, no matter how long you dip your finger in the ocean for, right? It's just a drop, maybe two or three drops, right? But what are those two or three drops compared to the entire ocean? Any? How would you even compare? Right? So what what? What's on your finger of that dropper two is this world? And the Hereafter is like that ocean? So if I lost our Cologne, will you not reason dark

00:21:40 --> 00:22:32

alone is from an article? An article is intellect rainfall, phlegm is the root. So Aren't you going to realize, aren't you going to get it, that what is permanent is better than what is temporary? And that what is in the Hereafter is way better than what is in the world? And he once you get that already, once you understand that already? Won't you change your, you know, priorities accordingly? So what is it that you're going to prefer? Just the things of the world? Or are you going to focus on your destination, your eternity, the home of the hereafter? And really, this is something that we need to remind ourselves off on a daily basis, because we forget very quickly, very quickly. And,

00:22:33 --> 00:23:20

you know, if we start having these conversations with our family members, even it's, you know, these are helpful reminders. You know, for example, every time a new phone comes out these days, everybody's talking about the new iPhone, right? Okay, fine, cool, and the newer phone is out. But then what, eventually it's also going to become outdated, right? It's also going to become old or people are going to get bored of it right. So nothing in this world is permanent. Nothing at all. But that which is with Allah subhanaw taala that is permanent. This is why of when it comes to paradise Kali Dena Fie ha they will abide eternally they're in liable who Noronha who Allah, they

00:23:20 --> 00:23:29

will not even wish to transfer anywhere from Jenna. They will be so happy and Jenna that they will not even want to move from there.

00:23:30 --> 00:24:20

And you see, so often it happens that we get bored of eating the same food, right? The same type of food the same spices are the same flavors we want to change. But the food in general this is so beautiful in total bacara we learn that cola Mousa Coleman ham in similar to risk on kalu had a lady whose economic couple one or two behemoths shabbiha that every time they will be given some you know fruit to eat in general they will be served right after they eat it they will say oh, this is what we had before also, but they will not, you know, instantly recognize it, because it will look similar yet it will be different. What does this mean? One interpretation of this is that every

00:24:20 --> 00:24:59

single time that the people of gender will eat something, it will look like something that they have never eaten before. Or it will be like a new experience every single time. So they will never get bored. Right? never get bored. So panela so there is there's no boredom and Jenna, right? There's only ever lasting permanent enjoyment. But who is this for? Who is it for? Instead of the shoulder? I am number 36. We learn women are in the law higher on whatever call What is with Allah is better.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:49

And more lasting, but it is little levena amanu it is for those people who believe why a lot of Bohemia to work alone and they put their trust in Allah subhanaw taala So, this is for those people will last panel how to make us amongst them then it is said FM and what are the now who were then has center. Now a comparison is being made between two types of people and a question is asked and this question is that FM and then what do you think about the person who what are the now who we have promised him meaning Allah subhanaw taala has promised that person and what kind of a promise is this wider than hesson? A good promise meaning Allah subhanaw taala has promised this person

00:25:49 --> 00:26:35

Jenna Okay, that Allah subhanaw taala will admit him in gender and Allah subhanaw taala will will reward him with the rewards of Jenna Okay. Now of course in this life, no person knows if that has been promised to them. But there are you know certain actions for which Allah subhanaw taala has promised Jenna right, like for example, in sort of the shoulder verse 36 return that what is with Allah is is better and more lasting meaning the reward in Jenna but it is for who Lil levina Avenue when Allah says that this is for those who believe this is a lost province, right. So, FM Anwar the now who are then has center. So, one is a person who had who has been promised a good promise

00:26:35 --> 00:27:22

meaning of Paradise, and then for who are lucky for who are so he left p he is one who will meet it lappi is one who meets this is from the word live pop, right lamb coffea Luca is to meet so Allah P is a person who meets right. So he will meet it meaning he will obtain that reward when he dies when he leaves this world, then on the Day of Judgment, he will be admitted into Jenna, Why will he be admitted into agenda because this was a less promise, right? That those who believe those who do righteous deeds then with the last panel, Todd has mercy they will be admitted into Jenna. Right? So he he you know that promises fulfilled for him. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala does not fail in

00:27:22 --> 00:28:18

his promise when Allah subhanaw taala gives us word that remember, there is no one who is more true than Allah. Okay, so for who were lucky. Now there is this one person, right? Who has that promise from Allah? And then that promises fulfilled? Is he come in like someone else? Who is such that mutter now who we have given him enjoyment, okay? What kind of enjoyment the enjoyment of metta I'll hire to dunya the enjoyment of worldly life, any, the second person just has the enjoyment of worldly life, you know, good food, good family health, a lot of wealth, freedom, security, etc, luxury, right? So he has all of this. And yes, last panel thought is the one who has given him all

00:28:18 --> 00:29:06

of these blessings, but he's just enjoying these things. He doesn't have that promise from Allah because this person doesn't believe he's not doing the deeds that are required. So, then what will happen so my Hawaii yomo pmet, then he will be on the Day of Judgment, mineral Marine, among those who are presented, presented for what presented for a sub and earth club for accounting, and then punishment or the marine marine is the plural of the word. Alright. And my thought is one who has been fetched, one who has been brought, meaning he will not be able to escape, he will be brought for his sub, and then after that punishment, so then what's happening over here, we have, you know,

00:29:06 --> 00:29:58

a comparison of two people, that yes, both of them, they, they go through worldly life, right? They enjoy the different things of the world. They, they, they are in worldly life, you know, for for their short, numbered days. But then there's one of them, he, yes, he's, he's, he's enjoying the things of this life. However, his focus is the hereafter. That is his, his priority. So he's preparing for that. Right? And then the other person, His focus is not the hereafter His focus is just worldly life. So then what's going to happen? What's gonna happen ultimately, that one person receives the good promise of Allah is admitted into paradise, and the other person is now going to

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

suffer punished

00:30:00 --> 00:30:49

In help, is there a difference between these two people? Absolutely, there is the 100%. There is there, these people are not the same, there's a huge difference. Think about it this way, a person enjoys something temporarily. Right? Like the dunya, they enjoy it temporarily. But then the nature of this dunya is, is it's not going to, it's not going to last forever, you are not going to live on in this life forever, it's going to come to an end. So what matters is not what you have right now. What matters is what you will get tomorrow, because that is permanent. Think about it. There is a person who who goes to, you know, a dealership and rent a car, for example, rents a Ferrari for the

00:30:49 --> 00:31:40

day. All right. And then he drives it around, takes all those photos, gets a photo shoot. All right, feels really happy about the you know, the car that he's driving, and then what happens he has to go and return the car by the end of the day. So he goes home without a car without that fancy car. All right. And then there's another person who actually owns that car. All right, he owns that car. So when he goes home, he parks the car in his garage, right? He owns it, is there a difference? There's a difference, huge difference, one person, what he has is is temporary and the other person what he has is eternal, right is permanent. So the way you know what you have right now in this world is

00:31:40 --> 00:32:14

going to come to an end. How is it that you you get permanent enjoyment permanent life? How is it that you have that good promise of eternity? Not by accumulating the things of this world? Not by fulfilling your desires here? Not by by seeking abundance and permanence here? No, it is by focusing on the home of the hereafter. It is by making Jenna the afterlife your ultimate goal.

00:32:15 --> 00:32:18

We learn over here that

00:32:19 --> 00:33:05

Thumma Hua yo malkia multi mineral Marine, that on the Day of Judgment, he will be of those who are fetched any brought for hisab imagine that a person is now on the day of judgment has to be answerable for everything that he enjoyed all of those blessings, right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned about how people will be asked about cooled water, cool water that we drink, we have to answer Allah subhanaw taala about it that were we grateful for it or not? What did we do on on enjoying these blessings? So, when a person is of those who believe right, then what happens is that even with the you know the things that they enjoy in this life, they become a source

00:33:05 --> 00:33:51

of reward for them. Because when you have that water to drink, you say Bismillah right. So that act of drinking water becomes rewardable you say Alhamdulillah after you drink, right? So that that yes, you enjoy something, but it became a means of earning Allah subhanaw taala has approval in the hereafter. So what's the lesson here the lesson is that focus on the final abode. Do not focus on the present life any, it doesn't mean that you leave what you have and you abandon it and you get away from you know, your family and the things no that would be an extreme that we have been forbidden from. That's not what we have been told to do. What we need to do is that with these

00:33:51 --> 00:34:24

blessings, right, we focus on home of the hereafter that we use these blessings to to to earn the pleasure of Allah subhana wa tada and we never become proud of what we have. Rather we use all of these things as a means to earn the home of the hereafter and the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala then it is said where you oma unit D him and Warren the day at or worn off the day or mentioned the day that he will call them

00:34:25 --> 00:34:35

fire cooler than he will say a nasura cat he Where are my partners and levina Quantum does Ramon which you use to claim

00:34:36 --> 00:34:59

So here were yo my unity him well yo ma What this means is and mentioned the day or warn the people off the day, which day this is the day of judgment and what's going to happen on that day. What is it that you should warn them specifically about the fact that Allah subhanaw taala is going to call them Allah subhanaw taala is going to address the people

00:35:00 --> 00:35:50

Which people specifically those who associated partners with Allah, via kulu then the last panel Tata will say to them, he will ask them that aina Shula, Carrie, where are my partners, which partners and levina Quantum kezar Moon, which you use to claim those rune is from Zaire, I mean, which is to claim or assume something, you know, without any evidence, meaning where are all those that you worshiped? The fact is the last panel Tata has no partner, right? But when it is said over here, that aina should account you Where are my partners, meaning those which you assume those which you claimed, those which you invented? Right? So those whom you worshiped? Besides me? Where are

00:35:50 --> 00:36:39

they No, meaning if they were truly God, then they would be here. And they would respond to you, and they would come to your aid. So where are they? Right? And where is their benefit? So the fact is that all of these, you know, beings that you worship, besides a law, they're not real gods, they're just your imagination. Alright, there is no reality to false gods in sort of the Niger Maya 23, we learned in here inlet a smell on some may two more her that these are just names which you have invented, and don't whatever will come you and your earlier forefathers, right that you have just come up with these names, right? These these fictional characters, basically, and you think that

00:36:39 --> 00:37:24

they're real, right, and you worship them, they have no reality to them. And the creatures have a lot when people associate with Allah, whether it is rissalah is Sam or the angels or any human origin or tree or cow or anything? Right? They're not God just because they're called God. So people who worship them will be asked on the day of judgment that way, are they? Are they really God? If they are, then how come they're not coming to your aid? So this question, that almost Panther will ask them that ain't sure carry? This question is not any for the purpose of interrogation like any asking them that, Oh, where are they? No, in the sense that inform us about them? The that's the

00:37:24 --> 00:37:47

purpose of this question is to reprimand and humiliate them, and to expose their false hood, you need the point over here is that if they were really God, they would have saved you today. If they were really God, then they would have you know, been here today. So then call the levina, hochkar, la human toll,

00:37:48 --> 00:37:52

parlor, they will say who alladhina hochkar lay, he will call

00:37:53 --> 00:38:46

those upon whom the word will have come into effect. Which word This is the word of, of punishment, meaning the people whose guilt is established, right. They're there, their guilt is established, the punishment is proven against them, they are proven guilty. So they are deserving of punishment, right. So, these people will now respond and how is it that you know, their guilt is established what we learned in the previous verse, that almost Panther will ask them where are they and when they will not show up? Well see, what you did was all wrong. So, then, the people will say that and specifically These are people who lead others astray, right. So, these are, you know, leaders among

00:38:46 --> 00:38:47

people who lead others in,

00:38:49 --> 00:39:06

you know, in in associating partners with Allah or in in, you know, in in the misleading people from Allah subhanaw taala or some have suggested that these are the shalfleet the devils, right? Whether they are among the human beings or among the jinn.

00:39:07 --> 00:39:59

And remember that in previous times, this was very common that people could not change their religion, right? People were upon the religion of their leaders, and it was very, you know, clear in previous times at least. And even now, you know, we as people, we have a tendency to just blindly follow individuals, and we have to be extremely careful about that. That just because we we admire someone, it doesn't mean that whatever they say is right, or just because we dislike someone It doesn't mean that whatever they say is wrong. So, color Latina ha Carla, you will call they will say robina ha Ola Illa Vina of wayna they will say Our Lord, these are the people whom we led astray and

00:40:00 --> 00:40:55

All the way now home, we lead them astray come away, not because we ourselves were astray, or just as we ourselves were astray, we were misguided. We were in error. And so we lead them in error as well. We lead them astray. However to bharatnet Lake, we declare our dissociation from them to you. Meaning before you, we say now that we have nothing to do with these people, we don't accept their, you know, their worship of us, or the fact that they followed us, and they stuck by our word Tamara Lake, and they will say, McCann, who Yana Yabu, they did not use to worship us. Because remember that there are among people who are literally worshipped, right? Who are if they're not such that,

00:40:55 --> 00:41:39

you know, people do such that to them, people will stick by every word of theirs. And there have been many, many people in the past also, who have twisted the truth who have, you know, changed the truth, just to suit their own desires, and people have followed them blindly. Right? So such leaders such liars, such Miss leaders rather, what will they do on the Day of Judgment, they will completely abandon their followers completely abandon them Kabbalah Lake, they will completely disowned them, they will say the Yala we have nothing to do with these people. Even though these people followed us even though these people loved us admired us. They even worshipped us, we don't care about them. We

00:41:39 --> 00:42:07

don't accept any of their dedication. We don't accept any of their worship or their love, my candle IANA boon, and the fact is that they never worshipped us. Well, then what is it that they were worshipping? What their what they meant is that what they will mean is that they only worship their own desires, they worshiped their own desires, they weren't worshiping us. And yes, they weren't worshipping Allah, but they were worshiping their desires. So look at this,

00:42:08 --> 00:42:58

any, anyone that we turn to besides you know, instead of Allah subhanaw taala and we love them more than we should love Allah we, we give preference to their word. Look at this relationship. It's it's going to be finished on the day of judgment in so the zakura fire 67 we learn a Hila Yama even BB only bargain or do that close friends on the day of judgment will be enemies to each other. They will be enemies to each other. They will not be friends anymore. Why? Because this friendship came at a cost at a cost of what? Off turning away from a list of priorities of disobeying Allah subhanaw taala. associating partners with Allah subhanaw taala. So Mercado iyana er Boone, they will

00:42:58 --> 00:43:46

completely disown them, will Kayla, and it will be said meaning to the followers, or to the people who used to worship others besides Allah, that other crucial aka acoem call upon your partners invoke your partners, meaning those whom you associated with Allah. And by the way, the word Sheila cat is the plural of shriek, shriek is partner, meaning those who were set up as partners with Allah. So they will be told call upon them, okay? Call them for help for their own home. So you know what, those poor miserable people they will actually call upon their false gods, whether it is idols or people, they're leaders for their own home, but then follow me yesterday Bula home, they will not

00:43:46 --> 00:44:15

respond to them, they will not answer them, they will not come to their aid, what a will or their job and they will see the punishment. Now. The people who are associated partners with Allah, they will see the punishment. What a pity, low unknown, can we after dawn, if only they had followed guidance, low unknown, can we get alone If only they had followed guidance? What does it mean? This means that if only they were rightly guided,

00:44:17 --> 00:44:59

then they would not be in this condition today. They would not be in the state of complete abandonment today. Right? If they had followed guidance, they had worshipped Allah subhanaw taala they had loved him most they had given him most importance and not these false gods, then they would not have been in this condition today. Low unknown can we afternoon also means that if only they were rightly guided, they would not have worshiped these false gods. And he imagined their regret on the day of judgment that we spent our lives right striving to please these individuals

00:45:00 --> 00:45:48

We spent our lives following every instruction of these individuals, right? We spend our lives turning away from Allah, stuff at Allah. So what's going to happen now on the day of gentlemen regret upon regret, so low unknown, can we afternoon, then they would not have worship them. And this also means low unknown can we have to do, if only there were rightly guided, they would have known that, that punishment is real, that punishment of the Hereafter is real. And because of that, they would not have worship these false gods. So then what is this show? This shows us that right now, in this present life, we have to strive for guidance, low unknown, can we get that Don't you

00:45:48 --> 00:46:35

see you have to do at that is to, is to obtain guidance, to find guidance to accept it, and then to be on guidance. Right. So there are many people who know what the truth is, but they don't actually follow it. Right? They they follow it for some time, and then they stop, they give up right there, their priorities change. Or there are many people who don't even know the truth because they're so blinded by the things of this world. And its beauty that they can't think of anything else. That's all that matters to them. They're not thinking about what's going to come after they leave this world. So, we need guidance now and this is why we must we must keep asking Allah subhanaw taala for

00:46:35 --> 00:47:27

guidance, low unknown can we have to dawn on the Day of Judgment what's going to benefit a person is there is there he Daya so low unknown can we get that on? And then it will be and then it is said where yoma unit D him and mentioned the day that he will call them meaning Allah subhanaw taala will call people he will he will ask them for your call and he will say Mother a job tomorrow. Celine. What did you answer the messengers? Mother a genital? What is it that you gave as joab right in the previous iolta? We saw the word lm Yes, the g mu. Here we see a job. Right? It is to respond. So what kind of response Did you give to who are mousseline? the messengers? Those who are sent more

00:47:27 --> 00:47:55

saline is a plural of medicine. Meaning Allah subhanaw taala sent so many messengers, right? messenger after messenger. So what was your response? Did you believe in them? Did you confirm them? Did you follow them? Or did you deny them and oppose them? So remember, that on the Day of Judgment, we will be asked, we will be asked about how we responded to the messengers of Allah.

00:47:56 --> 00:48:44

We learn incircle are off verse number six fallenness Elena larina, ora sila la him wilderness ellendale mousseline that we will definitely indeed ask the people to whom messengers were sent. And we will also ask the messengers, any the messengers will be asked about what they conveyed and what response they got. And people will be asked about how they're responded to the messengers of Allah. Now, we might say that, oh, yeah, you know, my response to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is really good, I believe in him, I love him, I strive to, you know, be upon his, you know, follow his teachings, and hamdulillah that's excellent, I shadow Allah ilaha illa Allah who I shadow under

00:48:44 --> 00:49:21

Mohammed, Allah, so Allah wa hamdulillah. But joab is not just in the form of saying that, you know, I believe joab includes following obeying, and this is what we really need to check ourselves with that, Am I pretty, you know, serious about following the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam following his instructions, right, obeying His command? Or is it that I do whatever I please, and I ignore whatever I please write any we need to study about the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as well.

00:49:22 --> 00:49:59

So for your column madda, a jepto model saline. And can you imagine this question being asked that what what response Did you give to the messenger? What was your attitude towards Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so remember that, you know, our duty, of course, is towards Allah subhanaw taala that we worship only Allah, but then also the messengers that Allah has sent, we need to see what is our response towards them. Right, what do we believe about them? And and how is it that we, you know, take their teachings so Mather adopted one more saline

00:50:00 --> 00:50:44

All of the messengers will be asked and their communities will be asked their their alma will be asked, and especially the Muslim oma. We don't in total bacala, Lita, kulu Shahada, our alumnus, we have a double responsibility. On the day of judgment, we have to testify against the other nations as well. Because what will happen is that when different people will be asked that did a messenger come to you, they will outright deny that oh, we never knew and they will lie, just to save themselves. So the Muslim, oma is going to testify against them. The Muslim oma is going to testify in the favor of the messengers that yes, the messengers of Allah conveyed. No, hardly, he said, I'm

00:50:44 --> 00:51:33

conveyed, sali heard he said, I'm conveyed, right? Who the early he said, I'm conveyed all of the messengers of Allah conveyed. So Mather a jepto mursaleen. So, what will happen then, for me at the rla, you will remember uyama even, but the information will be made apparent to them on that day, for whom lay at the set alone. So they will not ask one another? What does this mean for me, but I lay you will amber army it, it will become blind, alright, are they in for them, and that the News, the news will become blind to them. This is extreme hyperbole. Alright. Because information does not become blind, it's people who become blind to information. Right. And of course, becoming blind

00:51:33 --> 00:52:22

doesn't mean losing vision, it means not being able to see not being able to get it not being able to find it, right, not being able to, you know, recall it or or use it. So, for me at early you will and that information will be blind to them, what is me what is meant is that they will not be able to think of anything at all right, there will be as though blind. And and that is actually news, right information. And what is meant over here is an argument, you know, a proof and evidence a response. So, the question that they will be asked is, what response will Did you give to the messengers, and the people they will be such that they will not be able to come up with any

00:52:22 --> 00:53:11

argument, they will not be able to come up with any response to save themselves with. And their argument. They're Hajaj, right? They're called combat, because the fact is that they have no solid evidence to have denied the messengers. Right? What they have is just stories, assumptions and tales and just empty words. If you think about it, what kind of arguments did the people of Makkah use to deny the Prophet salallahu? Alayhi? wasallam? Right. One argument they used was that if we believe with you, then know the Hoffman arlena, we're going to lose our land. Right? If we, if we believe in you, if we follow you, then then people will not respect will not respect us anymore. Right? If we

00:53:11 --> 00:53:57

believe in you, if we follow you, we're going to lose out. Right? These are some arguments that they use that all the tribes are going to turn against us. But were these solid reasons, solid excuses for not having believed in the Prophet sallallahu early who said no, not at all. Because if they had security, it wasn't because of who they were. It's because Allah subhana wa tada is the one who gave it to them. If they had all that respect in their country, it's not because, you know, there were made of some special blood, it's because Allah subhanaw taala had given them that honor. Right. So all of the excuses that people have to deny the messengers of Allah, or to deny the truth. First of

00:53:57 --> 00:54:49

all, all of these excuses are hollow. Right? They are baseless, they're not solid evidences, right. And then secondly, on the day of judgment, they won't be able to recall anything, why will they not be able to come up with any proof or any kind of response, any kind of excuse, because of fear, because of extreme fear, they will become speechless, and for whom layer the sat alone, they will not even ask each other, they will not even be able to discuss with one another, turn to each other, you know, remind you know each other that Oh, perhaps we can say this or perhaps we can say that? No, they will be filled with fear. You see, we learned about the prophets of Allah. In total Merida

00:54:49 --> 00:54:59

I 109. That yo my edge Mr. LaHood whistle, that the day when Allah subhanaw taala will gather the messengers for yaku

00:55:00 --> 00:55:42

No matter or rebuttal, and a last point, I will ask the messengers that what response were you given, you know what will happen to the messengers, Allah Al Mallanna, they will say we have no knowledge, yet he they will be so afraid that they will not be able to say anything, they will tell we don't know anything in like an anti lambu or law, you know, everything. And we experienced this in worldly life also that, you know, when you are put on the spot, all of a sudden, you know the answers but you forget, right? Or sometimes because of the situation that you're in, or because of the fact that, you know, somebody who you really look up to is asking you a question, your mind goes

00:55:42 --> 00:56:27

blank, right? You know, and later on, you're like, I knew the answer, why didn't I say anything? Right? Fear, you know, in that moment kind of overcomes you and you're not able to say anything. So, what's the purpose of mentioning this? This is a warning to us because a lot of people again, they have you know, these excuses. They say that, yeah, on the day of judgment, I will ask Allah, that how come this and how come that right? Well, you know, when I am asked about why I didn't do this, well, I have this reason, that reason, that reason, you know, people have all of these hollow, you know, arguments but they're not going to work on the Day of Judgment. They're not going to work for

00:56:27 --> 00:57:17

Armenia to LA you will and that we are waiting for him lay at the sat alone. So then how is it that a person can be of those who are saved on the day of judgment? The answer is given in the next verse. For a moment taba then asked for the person who had repented, repented from their sin, right, whatever acts of disobedience they were doing, they left them the turn back to Allah. What armineh secondly, they believe were Amina solly how Thirdly, they do righteousness. Right? Then for Assa a akuna Minal Mosley hain then it is hoped or rather it is promised by Allah, that such a person will be among the successful many These are the people for whom is wiser than has an A good promise. Now

00:57:17 --> 00:58:07

notice the word fossa, alright arsa means it is hoped or perhaps maybe all right, but when this is used for Allah subhanaw taala then it then it doesn't mean maybe, no, because Allah subhanaw taala His Word is true, right, his promises true. So if Allah says far setting akuna min and muesli hain, then it is promised by Allah, that such a person will be among the successful right, that such people will be saved on the Day of Judgment. And remember that mostly heyne plural of muffler muffler is a person who has attained for law and for law is two things. One is that you escape the danger, right? You escape the danger, so you are safe. Alright. And secondly, Fela also includes

00:58:07 --> 00:58:18

attaining the desired goal. All right, so a muffler is who muffler is someone who has escaped,

00:58:19 --> 00:58:48

you know, the dangers of the hereafter. And they've attained the goal meaning the goal of eternal life eternal blessing in Paradise, but this doesn't happen by luck. All right, that oh, you know, maybe I hope that you know, if I'm lucky, I'll make it No, you don't just you know, hope for this. You don't just hope for this, you know, muffler is someone who works hard

00:58:49 --> 00:59:38

for life from the same roof is actually used for a farmer and he a farmer is not just sitting at home hoping that yes, you know there because he has a piece of land. There will be some, you know, seeds that randomly fall on his land and then hoping that there will be rain and hoping that you know, those seeds will sprout and then there will be a crop and then hoping that somebody will just come in harvested and hoping that you know by luck, he will make a whole lot of money. No, a farmer does not just wish and hope a farmer Yes, he has that hope. But along with that hope a farmer works really hard. So far, sir, in your corner Minh and muesli hain, we we wish for the home of the

00:59:38 --> 00:59:50

hereafter. We want to be saved from the dangers of the hereafter. But there's some work required in our part. And what is that work three things are mentioned doba Amen. enameled smiley.

00:59:51 --> 00:59:59

01:00:00 --> 01:00:42

repentance from what? From associating partners with Allah knowingly or unknowingly. Whether it is minor shed core major shift major shift is well known right? Like for example a person worshipping an idol. All right, but minor shift is what showing off. Right that a person is doing something good and at the same time their wishes you know, people look up to me and they're impressed by what I'm doing. This is what this is minor ship so Toba from all types of chic, and this is something that we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us for that he or Allah forgive me for having done shidduch with you knowingly or unknowingly. Alright, so Toba, and then Toba from other sins as well,

01:00:43 --> 01:01:30

major or minor, right? The major sins like lying and backbiting, and then minor sins, also, Abubakar Viola Warren, who he said that Allah subhanaw taala forgives major sins, so do not despair. And he gives punishment for minor sins, so do not be deceived. And he don't think that it's okay, a little sin here a little sin there, that for example, you know, you're you're scrolling through your phone, and then there's a you know, an image that is not appropriate and you keep looking at it, or that you put yourself in a situation where such images are constantly coming up. No, this is a serious matter. Right, don't get deceived. So for a moment about we need to constantly repent every time

01:01:30 --> 01:02:19

that we catch ourselves making a mistake tober has suffered a lower Tobu Lake right and then armineh believed right and belief is also something that we have to constantly revive Eman is not something stagnant that you have it or you don't have it. Right Eman is something that increases and decreases Alright, it goes up and it goes down. So you have to revive your faith you have to you know, build it work on it. And then what Amina salia does righteous deeds, right also does the required work. So it is such people about whom it is promised by Allah, that they will be among the successful May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst them. inshallah, we will conclude over here subhanak Allah homo
