I was

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

never him.

00:00:07 --> 00:00:08

I never 137

00:00:10 --> 00:00:28

other harlot men probably come sooner known fasciae will fill out refunds little cave acana are people to look at the been similar situations as yours have passed on before you. So proceed throughout the earth and observe how is the end of those who denied

00:00:29 --> 00:01:18

the believers are being addressed. Those who had just suffered great loss at the Battle of Earth, and they're being comforted by the fact that men carbery come sooner No, sooner known is the plural of sooner. And sooner from the letter seen noon, noon has many meanings. One of the most common ones is practice way, the usual way of doing something the usual way of dealing with someone the norm. And other meanings are that the word son is also used for a bath and open a common way. similarity It is used for a nation. It's also used for an incident over here however, it gives the meaning of practice the usual norm.

00:01:19 --> 00:01:50

So are the harlot Min carbery comes sooner? No. Many Cernan have passed before you are Muslims. What does that mean? My son, son, and first of all has been understood as people have different center, or different people having some different civilization, different civilizations, different cultures have passed before you. But look at the end of all of these civilizations, what happened to those people who denied amongst them?

00:01:51 --> 00:02:15

So many nations passed away before you, the people of New the people of the people of the moon, so many civilizations, so many nations? But what happened to those people who denied amongst them? What happened? Were they successful? No, they weren't. So if you have suffered a defeat right now, why do you think that the enemy will eternally be successful? No, they will not be successful.

00:02:16 --> 00:02:35

Secondly, Salonen has been understood as a loss of power that is dealing with the unbelievers. That typically what happened in the previous generations in the previous nations, that the people, they were told about the truth, some of them didn't accept, they denied and what happened with them,

00:02:36 --> 00:02:52

they were given rest bite until eventually, they were punished, they were seized. Similarly, if your enemy is temporarily victorious, this is only temporary. This is only wesbite, that Allah subhanaw taala is giving.

00:02:53 --> 00:03:17

So other one has been covering come sooner known fasciola will have zero issue fettucine era from the word Save, and save means machine to walk to move about. And then it's also used for traveling. It's also used for traveling. The name Syrah is from the same root sale, meaning the one who travels interesting.

00:03:18 --> 00:03:36

So fast to fill out so travel in the earth, meaning open rivers go about in the earth, journey throughout the earth, travel through the earth, why? fundamental kafer cannot be able to look at the brain and see what was the end of those people who do not need

00:03:37 --> 00:04:26

to remember traveling for this purpose can be done in two ways. First of all, sidle up to them, traveling with one's feet, meaning physically going physically traveling to such places and seeing what was the end of those people? How did they end up? So for instance, a person goes somewhere, he travels to a particular place, and he sees the ruins of a previously destroyed people or an ancient civilization. So he sees the ruins himself physically. So first of all, the title of them. Secondly, Sunoco lube, what does that mean? That a person reflects upon what happened and he takes a lesson from it. So one is for example, literally physically, you see it, you go there or you watch a

00:04:26 --> 00:04:59

documentary, you read about something. And the other side of that you reflect upon it. You don't just take it Okay, this happened and that happened and that happened. That was the end of the people know, you reflect upon it. Why in order to take a lesson from their end. From zero okay for Canada, October activationary. factories, iron cough back from the word active active is used for heal. And our October is a consequence, that is a result of inaction. It's a consequence, what is the consequence the result of an action what follows an action

00:05:00 --> 00:05:13

So what was the outcome of those people who denied they did something? And what was the outcome? What did they do that leave? What is that leave denial? What was the outcome of us, punish them.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:35

So from Lulu, go and look with your bustle, as well as with your physical side, as well as your insight, as well as your reflection. So go around and see and take a lesson. And you will realize that if someone with their disbelief is prosperous today, is victorious. Today, their victory is not forever,

00:05:36 --> 00:05:38

their prosperity is not forever.

00:05:39 --> 00:05:54

From here, from this ayah, we see that our loss of habitat is encouraging us that we should go and look around and take a lesson from the people who passed before us, especially those people who were destroyed before us entire civilizations that were wiped off.

00:05:55 --> 00:06:07

So we shouldn't just go and admire their architecture. We shouldn't just go and admire their great achievements, no. But rather, we should think about their end.

00:06:08 --> 00:06:57

Why did they end like this? How did they end like this? And not just why and how they ended up like that, in the physical sense. There was an earthquake in this what happened, there was a flood and this is what happened, know, who caused that flood? Who sent that earthquake? And why? Why. So reflect upon that. The prophets are allowed to send them from his son, we learned that when he passed by, from a hatred, hatred was a place of previous people, and they were destroyed. So when he passed by the ruins, he said, Do not enter the houses of those who earned themselves last what had happened to them, would afflict you. But if you had to do such a thing, then let it be associated

00:06:57 --> 00:06:57

with weeping.

00:06:58 --> 00:07:22

Meaning when you go there, don't go there for the purpose of entertainment, but rather go there to take a lesson. And don't just go there and laugh. No, go there and weep and cry, that these people there are also walking upon the earth. They were also living just like I am living, but they did something because of which they were punished in this dunya.

00:07:23 --> 00:08:03

So weep, cry over there, don't just amuse yourself. And we see many times people go to the museum, and they see some things and they laugh at them with a joke about them, and they will go wear a costume and you know, look very funny. So for us, looking at these things, is a way of entertainment. However, we see that a lot of panatela is telling us that when you go and look at these things, reflect upon it, take a lesson from it, and what was the way of the Prophet sort of artisan? And he taught us that when you pass by such places do so when we think so even when we're watching a documentary, or reading something in the newspaper about a previous nation, about a

00:08:03 --> 00:08:14

previous civilization. Don't just do so for the purpose of increasing your knowledge and increasing your effects. No. do so in order to take a lesson. What is it that caused that?

00:08:16 --> 00:08:24

However they unruliness, this is a clear statement to all the people. What does Heather refer to? First of all, it refers to the entire Quran.

00:08:25 --> 00:08:31

The entire Quran is what it is a ban a clear statement for the people.

00:08:32 --> 00:08:44

Secondly, how that can be understood as the verses which have been mentioned here, particularly which verses from wasabi or filati. Middle have become until the end of these verses, which we just read.

00:08:45 --> 00:09:01

So these verses in particular, what are they are banned for all the people? What does ban mean? A statement, a declaration, but by an forebay unknown means to clarify something. It's something that is clear, in and of itself.

00:09:03 --> 00:09:22

So bad, meaning it's a clear statement. And it also clarifies so by an alumnus. This is something that is a clear statement for the people clarifying the matters for the people, well, who don't want our electron limited thing. And it is a guidance and an admonition for those people who have the core

00:09:23 --> 00:09:34

coda, a guidance, meaning a way out of Berlin, out of misguidance out of air, to the way of obedience to a muscle.

00:09:35 --> 00:09:47

So out of Galella to hit a woman with what is Moreover, it's an advice which softens the heart and invites a person to it takes a person to obedience to a muscle.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:53

It's an advice that softens the heart of a person and takes him to obeying Allah.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:59

So the Quran is a Buddha and the Quran is also a motiva meaning it exists.

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

People to continue in good and refrain from bed. But it's a motivator for who didn't want to clean for those people who have Taqwa. What does this I assure us that the Quran is banned. It's a clarification for who for all people,

00:10:15 --> 00:10:42

it will give information, it will give detail, it will explain concepts for who for all people, but who is going to benefit from that band? Who is going to benefit from that explanation from that clarification from the statement? Who the most and how will they benefit from it when they take holder and they take Motorola when they take some guidance from it? And when they also take lessons from the Quran.

00:10:43 --> 00:10:57

So yes, in the Quran is by an there's explanation there is information. There's a lot of detail for people in general. However, only the one with the core is going to change.

00:10:59 --> 00:11:03

Because maintenance people say, Okay, this person has read the Koran, but he hasn't changed even a little bit.

00:11:05 --> 00:11:19

Or you might say to yourself that I've studied so much of the Quran so far, but I don't see change in myself. I know the word tour. I know the root words. I know the singular plurals I know the references. Why don't I see some change? What is needed?

00:11:21 --> 00:11:43

that a person out of the fear of Allah, whatever he learns, he does it, he applies it. And whatever he learned that he must not do, he stays away from it. As soon as he realizes his mistake, what does he do, he seeks forgiveness. And when a person does that, he increases in his taco, when a person will increase in the stock or he will increase in his he died in his guidance

00:11:45 --> 00:11:57

whenever he knew, and do not weaken what others do and do not grieve what until we are alone in consumer meaning and you will be superior. If you are true believers.

00:11:58 --> 00:12:23

This address is also to the believers. After the initial setback, at the loss at the Battle of boyhood, the Muslims felt weak. So over here, they're being encouraged that letter you know, don't lose your heart, don't feel weak. one letter has no end, don't grieve over what had happened. Move on what until are alone and you will be victorious you will be superior when if your true believers

00:12:24 --> 00:12:29

letter, you know is from New fetters well known from the word one.

00:12:30 --> 00:12:35

And one means to be weak. What does it mean to be weak.

00:12:36 --> 00:12:54

It's used for the weakness of intention, the weakness of determination, the weakness of resolve the weakness of action, and it's also used for the weakness of one's body. And many times both are connected, that if a person is not determined,

00:12:55 --> 00:13:03

a person does not have firm resolution, then what's going to happen, he will not be able to physically do that action either.

00:13:04 --> 00:13:25

And sometimes you're so tired, you feel physically weak, but because you are determined to do something, you are able to do it right. So one is used for weakness, what type of weakness, weakness of the heart weakness of action, weakness of intention, weakness of resolve determination, also body and sometimes the result is for weakness of character,

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

weakness of character.

00:13:29 --> 00:13:32

So that the you know, don't feel weak, don't feel lazy,

00:13:34 --> 00:13:39

don't lose your confidence, be confident, don't feel weak at all.

00:13:40 --> 00:14:07

is also said the thing you know is from newsletters, hair well known from the word home and what does home mean? To be small, to be less compared to the other. So now that you know, don't consider yourself to be lesser, don't consider yourself to be smaller compared to your enemy letter, you know, don't feel weak, don't be lazy. Don't lose your confidence, while others no and also don't grieve

00:14:09 --> 00:14:43

that has no extra hair, they know from the word present and what is present need to grieve over what over what a person has lost. So you have something and you lose it, you're going to be sad, that is what prison is. So when a person loses something, when he suffers a loss, that is when a person experiences person and a person experiences present also, when he does not have what he wants, you know when is that you have something and you lost it. And the other is that you want something and you don't have it and you can't get your hands on it.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:53

Okay, so herzan is sadness. So don't be sad. Don't be sad over what over the loss that you incurred.

00:14:55 --> 00:14:57

What was the loss of the Muslims in credit the Battle of

00:14:58 --> 00:15:00

Okay, first of all different

00:15:01 --> 00:15:31

What else did they suffer? Along with that many of the companions were martyred. The prophets or a lot of Adam's uncle was monitored will serve as an omega. He was martyred. Many companions were martyred at this battle. What else? What else did they suffer? Okay, their status. Previously, they were victorious, they were superior because they had won the battle of better. But now all of a sudden they separate defeat. So they lost their status in a way.

00:15:32 --> 00:15:33

What else

00:15:34 --> 00:15:49

financially as well, because, for instance, the Muslims have spent so much but they weren't victorious. And on the other hand, the honeymoon, the booty that they could have obtained, they even lost that. So it was loss of lives, as well as loss of honeymoon. What else?

00:15:50 --> 00:16:05

self confidence as well. Because when you fail, when you lose once, what happens, you start feeling very weak, right? So let there is no, don't grieve over what you have suffered, don't grieve over what you have lost.

00:16:06 --> 00:16:09

Similarly, they had disobeyed the prophets.

00:16:10 --> 00:16:36

So they were also sad about that. They were also regretful about that. The prophets are a lot of them suffered great injury as well. He also suffered wounds. So their sadness was also upon that. So that he knew what I knew, don't feel weak, don't lose your confidence. And don't grieve, because of what you have lost at the Battle of word.

00:16:38 --> 00:16:58

Remember, letter, you know, one is with regards to facing the future. And husband is about what happened in the past. One is that you don't have the confidence to deal with what's coming your way. And hasn't is that you can release yourself from what happened in the past, you're still stuck behind there.

00:16:59 --> 00:17:34

And these two things, what do they do to a person, they don't let a person move on, they don't let a person avail the opportunities that come his way. If you don't have the confidence to take what's coming your way, you're not going to take it, you're going to lose that opportunity. If you're still stuck in your past, you can't get over what happened in the past, what's going to happen, you're not going to move on, you're not going to look at the door that has been opened, you're still stuck in the past. So the Muslims are being taught, let me know, let us know. And when you stay away from these two things, then what's going to happen what until then you will be superior, because then you

00:17:34 --> 00:17:37

will be able to avail the opportunities that come your way

00:17:38 --> 00:17:57

or alone is a part of Allah and who is Ana, higher one, one who is superior, one who is victorious. So you will be superior, you will be higher compared to who compared to your enemy on your enemy. But what's the condition in contempt meaning if you're believers,

00:17:58 --> 00:18:10

so, yes, you have to be confident you should not have won and you should not have present then you will be victorious. But another very important condition is that you must be believers.

00:18:12 --> 00:18:16

The more Eman you will have, the more superior you will be

00:18:17 --> 00:18:23

the more Eman you will have, the less one you will have, the less husband you will have.

00:18:24 --> 00:18:55

Remember this is all connected with the worker that if a person only trusts upon himself, then he will think that everything that he suffered was because of him and he cannot change anything. Now that said everything is finished, everything is over you will not find any more opportunities, you will not be able to benefit from anything. But if it says okay, whatever has happened has happened. And now I have to trust upon Allah subhanaw taala to move on. And when he does that, what does that show increase in event only then he can be victorious only then he can be successful.

00:18:57 --> 00:19:17

So over here in this IOC, that one is reluctance on facing the future. One is to be reluctant in dealing with what comes a person's way. A person does not have the confidence to face what is coming his way. And many times this is because of what has happened in the past.

00:19:18 --> 00:19:23

You had a bad experience. And you think you cannot do it anymore.

00:19:24 --> 00:19:45

You think it's the end? For instance, you feel that you failed two tests. And you think that's it. If you're failing at the beginning what's going to happen towards the end, so might as well leave the course. This is what will happen is what is the lesson letter, you know, whatever has happened has happened. Now move on.

00:19:46 --> 00:19:59

And don't be fearful. Don't be scared, keep struggling. Keep trying and Allah will help you and husband is that a person is still stuck in his past. And both of these things they are contrary to

00:20:00 --> 00:20:08

As there are contrary to firm determination to resolve this stop a person from being determined in what he is doing.

00:20:10 --> 00:20:16

Also, we see that in order to be successful, we need to stay away from one and we need to stay away from prison.

00:20:18 --> 00:20:21

In order to be successful, we need to stay away from both of these two things.

00:20:22 --> 00:20:27

If we look at the Sahaba, the companions of the Prophet Sal about a second, we learned that Abdullah when

00:20:29 --> 00:20:30

he was blind,

00:20:31 --> 00:20:37

he was blind. And if he didn't have the confidence to go to battle, he was justified, but he still went.

00:20:38 --> 00:20:48

And he was the one who was given the flag of the Muslims in his hand. Because if I cannot fight at least I can hold on to the flag, at least I can raise that up.

00:20:50 --> 00:20:59

Similarly, we see that all the young companions they wish to participate in the battle along with the prophets or about Islam as well, but because they were very young, they were sent away.

00:21:00 --> 00:21:12

It is said that the prophets are about Islam had sent back to boys similar in gender, and raffia in college, as they were both 15 years of it. How old were they 15.

00:21:13 --> 00:21:19

Roughly, Rafa was later allowed by the prophet sallallahu Sallam to join the troops on the recommendation of his father.

00:21:20 --> 00:21:38

So his father came and he requested that he is a good Archer, so please take him with you. And so raffia was allowed. When someone else turn came and he was asked to go back, he pleaded with the prophets are allowed a sudden that since he had allowed rafter to join the army, although he was stronger than him, he must also be permitted to go.

00:21:39 --> 00:21:50

He also wanted to go thereupon, the two boys were told to wrestle with each other in with similar defeated raffia. Thus, he was also sanctioned to take part in the battle, he was also allowed to go there.

00:21:51 --> 00:22:32

So we see that if we only depend on ourselves, our abilities, then we cannot do anything. But if we look beyond ourselves, that this is what I have, this is all that I have. And I will use everything I have, for the sake of Allah soprano, Darla, and Allah will make you successful. But you have to come up with whatever you have. And if you are stuck in your best, if you cannot get over your past experiences, then what's going to happen, you will not be able to move further. But the fact is that if you are just grieving about your past, grieving over it is not going to change anything. And it's not going to bring back what you lost. grieving over it is not going to bring back what you've lost.

00:22:33 --> 00:22:38

So if you don't get over your past, you won't be able to move on.

00:22:40 --> 00:22:45

So over here, those who have are being told that yes, whatever happened, or what has happened, it's done.

00:22:46 --> 00:22:58

However, you have to move on. And in order to do that, let me know, let us know. And only then you will be victorious. Well, until Cardona in continued meaning

00:22:59 --> 00:23:13

over I don't know he narrated. He said that I heard the prophets that allowed us an insane author ban. What will you do when the nations call one another to invade you, as people call one another to come and eat from one bowl?

00:23:15 --> 00:23:33

That you Muslims, people will come and attack you and they will call each other to attack you just as people call each other to come and eat from the same place. You know, there's a buffet. People say please come please come in the same way. The nations are going to come and they're going to attack you they're going to call each other to attack you.

00:23:34 --> 00:24:07

Sir, about another guy who said me and my father and my mother, we sacrifice for you a prophet sallallahu Sallam or messenger of Allah? Is it because we are so few? Meaning Why will the people attack us like this? Is it because we will be very few in number? Prophet said no. On that day, you will be many, but Allah will put weakness in your hearts. Allah will put one in your hearts. The people asked what is that weakness? What is that one messenger of Allah. And he said it is love for this world and dislike for deaths.

00:24:08 --> 00:24:25

Love for this world and dislike for death. That is what creates one in the heart of a person. Weakness comes from what attachment to the things of this world and not wanting to die. These are two things that make a person a coward.

00:24:27 --> 00:24:59

I love my key chains. I love my collection. I love my bedroom. I love my book, I love my pen. I love my this attachment to these little things, insignificant things. What happens? These things don't give you the confidence to do something creative to do something bigger. They don't let you look beyond yourself beyond these little things. And then obviously, how are you going to do anything? How are you going to set targets for yourself and achieve them all that you're concerned about is the fact that there should be no spot on your floor that you're

00:25:00 --> 00:25:14

room should be speaking Spanish all the time. That is weakness. That is one love of the dunya fear of that. And this is what's going to make you very weak. This is what's going to take your courage away from you. And as a result, you will not be able to be successful.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:21

As as comparison, if a wound should touch you, for other muscle coma,

00:25:22 --> 00:25:26

there has already touched the opposing people a wound similar to it.

00:25:27 --> 00:25:41

The answers come in from the newsletters meme seen seen mass and what does mass mean to touch something. So the believers are being comforted that if a wound has touched you at birth,

00:25:42 --> 00:25:52

what does God mean? Or is used for a wound, it's used for an internal wound that is caused by some external thing by an external blow.

00:25:53 --> 00:26:07

So for instance, a person is hit by something very hard. There is no cut on the skin, but there is a bruise. So it's an internal wound that is caused by an external blow.

00:26:08 --> 00:26:28

And it is also used for the pain that a person suffers because of a wound. The pain that a person suffers because of a wound, you know, sometimes you get hurt. And you know, you don't see any mark on your body. But then all of a sudden, when you hit that part of your body somewhere, it hurts, and you wonder what happened.

00:26:29 --> 00:26:34

For instance, if your finger is hurting, you don't see a cut, you don't see that your fingers fallen, but your fingers is hurting.

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

So it's also used for the pain that a person suffers because of a wound. So em says confirm if a wound has touched you at or hurt, meaning if you have suffered great loss of or hurt, if you have suffered defeated or hurt, then this is not new faculty, Masako, mccahon, mithuna, who, then another people, they suffered a car before you as well, similar to your car as well,

00:27:01 --> 00:27:10

who does his own refer to the machine? You suffered losses or hurt, they suffered loss at birth if

00:27:11 --> 00:27:22

you suffered loss at or hurt, and they suffered loss, but you lost many of your companions and you're hurt. And they suffered many of their leaders many of their chips at birth.

00:27:23 --> 00:27:25

Why is Allah subhanaw taala saying this?

00:27:26 --> 00:27:37

When you know that you're not the only one who has suffered a loss, you feel better? You feel that, okay, I'm not the only one, it's possible to deal with it. You don't feel as beautiful on yourself anymore.

00:27:38 --> 00:27:45

If another person can deal with it, I can also deal with it. This is not something new. It happens to people, so I should get over it.

00:27:47 --> 00:28:09

You know, when children do crime, digital things, what do you say this is part of life, get over it. It's okay. Deal with it. Right. So similarly, if you have suffered a loss, or hurt, no big deal, some people before you, they suffered loss as well. And a loss that was miserable like it. But the fact is that the loss that the Michigan has suffered was much greater than the loss that Muslims had suffered.

00:28:11 --> 00:28:32

Why? Because they had lost not only 70 lives, but also 70 of their men who were taken as captives and they had spent a lot of money, a lot of money. The Muslims, they're only 300 if the last some camels okay 70 camels they took they took only two horses, that's all they had. So, your loss was still less compared to the loss that they incurred.

00:28:33 --> 00:28:58

What a year Manu there will have been a nurse and these days, we give by turns by in an S between the people these days meaning the days of victory and defeat. They are alternated, they are rotated between people. Meaning no one has victory forever. No one has defeat forever. Today your victorious tomorrow you are defeated.

00:28:59 --> 00:29:07

Today, he is defeated. Tomorrow he will be victorious. This is a part of life. These days. They're given in rotation to people.

00:29:08 --> 00:29:55

Say when two people are playing a game, what happens? One person wins one time and the next time another person wins. It's not possible that a person continues to win a person continues to lose No. These days are changed these days always change they never remain the same. The word new that we know is from the routers that wild lamb and the word dough is to rotate something to transfer one thing to another place to transfer one thing to another place from one place to another. So you have it today. Tomorrow somebody else has it. Today you don't have something tomorrow you will have it. So typical a yamo nuda will have been in this. So nothing in this life is permanent, except for

00:29:55 --> 00:29:59

change. Nothing in the site is permitted except for change.

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

So tomorrow, you may be victorious. If today you suffer defeat. So why are you stuck in your best? Why? move on? Don't judge your future based on what happened in the past, learn a lesson from your past and move on. Don't stay stuck over there

00:30:23 --> 00:30:36

while your animal lover and Medina Avenue and so that Allah knows those people who believe doesn't already know them, he does. So what does he mean by this meaning he may make them known. So that he may show that

00:30:37 --> 00:30:52

so that he can make them evident who those people who truly believe meaning those who have sincere email. So, when difficult times come, when a person experiences difficult times, then what happens? his emotion becomes evident.

00:30:53 --> 00:30:57

It shows what strong emotion he has or how weak of a man he has.

00:30:58 --> 00:31:20

When a person experiences difficulty, then you know what kind of emotion he has, in the difficulty, what is he doing? Is he panicking? Is it just crying? Or is he making the law? Is he trying to do something? What is he doing? So a person's behavior a person's reaction, in a difficult situation shows what kind of emotion he has.

00:31:21 --> 00:31:37

It shows what kind of emotion he has, which is why we don't introduce abakada, that alladhina either cassava to civitan, Alo in anila here in LA Raja, immediately as soon as the masiva strikes on what do they say? In other law, he will enable your audio and that shows that they had even

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

if they didn't suffer any difficulty, what would show that they have imagined how would they be tested? how their imaginary proven. So these difficult situations they prove the amount of a person where a man can show her the answer that he takes among you martyrs meaning Why were you made to suffer defeat at or hurt

00:32:01 --> 00:32:19

so that Allah would take among you some Shahada. Shahada is a lot of shade moisture in a mortar from the same word is a word Shahada is shahida, to bear witness to testify. So what's the connection between witnessing something, justifying something and martyrdom?

00:32:20 --> 00:32:22

Many of you have asked this question from me.

00:32:23 --> 00:32:37

The connection is that as Shaheed is called Shahid, why, because he does michelada of his reward at the time of his death, meaning he sees his reward when he is martyred.

00:32:38 --> 00:32:46

Or because they are worth their souls, they are presented to a loss apprentice, they are presented to a loss of panel data.

00:32:48 --> 00:33:24

So we're talking them in CompTIA. So that allow me to make sure that amongst you, meaning you suffered loss in or hurt. And part of that loss was that many among you were martyred. For example, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu masabi, when only both of them were martyred along with them, many of their companions were market and these companions, they gained the title of Shaheed they became martyrs in the sight of Allah. So this is why you suffered loss.

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

Because we learned that when the Muslims, they came back from birth, and those of them who had passed away who had been martyred at the Battle of

00:33:34 --> 00:33:57

those who hadn't been martyred, they wish for martyrdom. They wish to be martyred in the way of Allah. And as I mentioned to you earlier, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam initially intended to defend Medina from inside, remember, but some companions, especially the younger ones, they wish to go outside of Medina and fight. Why? Because they wanted Shahada. They wanted martyrdom.

00:33:58 --> 00:34:04

So we're dynamic, I'm sure that one bar will a bizarrely mean and Allah does not like those people who do.

00:34:05 --> 00:34:11

And therefore, he will give you the power in order to overcome them.

00:34:12 --> 00:34:13

What do we learn from this is?

00:34:15 --> 00:34:30

First of all, we learn that nothing in this life is permanent. Everything changes, everything changes, the days of victory, the days of glory come to an end, and the days of loss, the days or defeat have to come to an end.

00:34:31 --> 00:34:44

And why are these days changed? Why do things change in life? For our test, we are being tested with these changes. How much demand do we have? How much faith do we have in the last panel data?

00:34:46 --> 00:34:59

Also we learn from this is that a lot of panels Allah will give last to the believers at sometimes in some situations or lots of panels, it will give loss to the believers they will suffer loss despite the fact that they are untruth.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:30

What do we think that if you're on truth, you should always be victorious. Correct. That's what we think. And if we're not victorious, that means we're not on truth. So we judge truth based on if truth is victorious or not. But the fact is that Allah tells us over here, that Allah subhanaw taala, will give loss and defeat to the believers, despite the fact that they are on truth. Why, for different reasons, what are they? What are they? What are the reasons mentioned in this ayah.

00:35:32 --> 00:36:02

So that some people are taken as Shahada. And also, one of the main reasons is that we keep struggling, we keep striving. Because if we are given everything, if we know that we will be victorious, regardless of what we do, or what we don't do, just because we're believers, what's going to happen, eventually, we're going to start working. Correct. But if you realize that with the man, I also have to do something in order to be successful, only then we will continue to struggle.

00:36:03 --> 00:36:41

What is the problem with the Muslims today, we think that just because we're Muslim, we will be victorious. Therefore, don't do anything, don't do anything. For one, a loss of power that gives us defeat when he makes us suffer something, it is that we realize that we need to do something about Wilson herself. But we also need to do something on our part. Sometimes you see that people, they don't put in effort, even in their worldly affairs, for instance, when it comes to studying for an exam, people won't study, but they will only make one. Yes, there are is important, but you also have to study and then they think, okay, I failed, that means those don't work. And they stop making

00:36:41 --> 00:37:00

them. That is an extreme. You do your part. And alasa penalty will do his part, you put in the effort, and loss of panel data will help you. So Allah makes us suffer defeat so that we realize that we have to do something as well. If we enjoy victory all the time, then we will stop doing what we're supposed to do.

00:37:02 --> 00:37:43

Also, we see that Allah subhanaw taala has made this dunya such that nothing is permanent. Why? So that we do not get attached to this dunya we do not get attached to this worldly life. We don't develop that attachment with things. But unfortunately, we know that things are not permanent. We know that things will change Still, we get lost. Still we do that. But Allah subhanaw taala has made the Nia in this way what's the hikma behind that? Why isn't anything permanent in this life? So that we realize that this dunya is temporary. I'm not here forever and I should not attach myself to this dunya rather, I should look forward to go into the

00:37:45 --> 00:38:18

What do you mark is Allahu Latina amanu and that allow me purify the believers? How through trials were called carefully and destroy the disbelievers. Leona Hessel. Land over here is of darlin reason. Meaning what is the reason behind medalla behind the rotation of there is a victory and there is a defeat. Why is it that one day you are victorious and the next day you're defeated? Why? Another reason is so that Allah subhanaw taala can purify the believers?

00:38:20 --> 00:38:47

You might have saw it from the newsletters meme, how solid and the word dumb haze has two meanings. First of all, it means to test or to try something What does it mean to test something to try something? Secondly, the haze means to refine or to purify something, Mars is to purify something from a fault or from blemish, it is at my house to have meaning I purified the gold how by heating it in fire.

00:38:48 --> 00:38:52

So my hustle is to purify something to cleanse something

00:38:53 --> 00:39:43

and it is to purify something from the law hit as well as the battling weaknesses. So something is dirty on the surface on the law here. My house is to clean it on the outside. But my house is also to refine it to purify in the bathroom sense. In the bathroom sensor. For example, a person has bad feelings in his heart. A person has negative feelings, being cowardly, grudges, anger, Hazard, frustration, such feelings in his heart. So my husband is when a person is made to go through such experiences through which these feelings are wiped out. These feelings are erased. So why does a loss of panatela make you go through difficulty so that you get cleansed so that you have cleansed

00:39:43 --> 00:39:59

Luma hustle so that Allah subhanaw taala refines and purifies those people who have believed and when it comes to the purification of the believers that has done in two ways, first of all, from their sins, from their faults from their wrongdoing.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:08

And secondly, so that they are distinguished from the rest of the people so that they are known and recognized for their purity.

00:40:09 --> 00:40:26

When a person goes through difficulty, what becomes visible, his struggle, his determination, and then he's clearly distinguished from a person who does not have determination. his sincerity is distinguished for a person who does not have sincerity.

00:40:27 --> 00:40:59

So Lima has Allahu Latina Amano, so that Allah May cleanse and purify those people who believe and for that testing is necessary for the difficulties necessary. So for example, why are you tested on every app just so that we know who is actually studying and who's not studying? Those people who are studying they get reward for their study, and those people who are not, they realized that they need to work harder. So Luma has Allah Latina Amano, y m hackled caffeine and also to eliminate the disbelievers.

00:41:00 --> 00:41:30

Em haka is from him her path and we have done the word earlier as well. him help Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanaw. taala destroys the rebel. So my hope is to destroy something do take the Baraka of something away to erase something so young, how caffeine how that first of all, literally destroys them. Secondly, that he reduces their strength. He reduces their numbers. And all of the efforts that they're putting in this world, they're wasted, called caffeine.

00:41:31 --> 00:41:32

And when will that happen?

00:41:33 --> 00:41:36

When the believers are successful, or whether

00:41:37 --> 00:41:42

we learned that after the Battle of Abu Sufyan said, What a glorious deed we have done.

00:41:43 --> 00:41:52

I was a fan, who was at the time the leader of the machine army, he said, What a glorious deed we have done, this is our revenge for better.

00:41:53 --> 00:41:55

He said to the Muslims, that this is our revenge for

00:41:56 --> 00:42:12

victory in war goes by turns, one wins today, and the other tomorrow, or model the nine who said that the scores are certainly not even our dead have gone to paradise, and yours have gone to hellfire.

00:42:13 --> 00:42:30

So the scores are not even. So yes, one person is victorious. Today, the other person is defeated. And tomorrow the situation will change. However, a person should realize that the one upon truth is really successful. And the one upon false or is the one who is actually defeated.

00:42:32 --> 00:42:42

And has ever done enter the hotel gender? Or did you think that you will enter gender? Well, Am I your enemy level Latina, geodome income, while Allah has not yet known those people who strive amongst you?

00:42:43 --> 00:43:01

does Allah not already know them? Of course he does. Again, he is going to show those people who sincerely strive in His way, who sincerely struggle in his cause, we are almost sobbing and he knows those people who are patient.

00:43:02 --> 00:43:15

So we see that the pathogen is difficult. The pathogen another way to gender is difficult. A person does not enter agenda just by wishing for gender, just by desiring gender, but rather he has to do two things. What are they? Jihad and sobre

00:43:17 --> 00:43:39

that you have meaning struggling in the way of Allah subhanaw taala struggling to obey Allah. Sometimes you have to struggle against yourself, your sleep, your comfort, and sometimes it's an external enemy. So whatever your enemy is, whether it's yourself or someone else, what is Jihad that you continue to struggle against it? Why? Because you have to be Allah.

00:43:40 --> 00:44:01

We are the most well being and the second thing that is required is sub. These two things when a person continues to do them, then he gets to gender. So Allah is questioning us that Do you think you'll enter gender without any tests without any trials without any difficulty? The loss that you have suffered at Ohio, this is a test for you. This is a test for you.

00:44:03 --> 00:44:07

So Allah subhanaw taala is testing you that who does submission

00:44:08 --> 00:44:16

during the battle, what was being seen? Who does Jihad after the battle? What is being seen? Who does suffer?

00:44:17 --> 00:44:40

We are lama savarin. And he knows those people who are sobbing. Hassan Vasily, he said, laser even with too many weatherbeeta. Holly Eman is not with wishful thinking or long hopes. Eman is not wishful thinking in long hopes. I love Allah. I love the messenger. No. We're in the middle Emmanuel metalworker of elcon.

00:44:43 --> 00:44:47

Eman is what finds root in the heart and actions confirm it.

00:44:48 --> 00:44:59

actions they confirm what isn't the heart of a person. So if you say that you love Allah, then how much are you struggling to obey Allah? How much do you have that you're doing?

00:45:00 --> 00:45:13

In order to obey Allah so Eman is not just about claiming is not just about long hopes. It's not just about wishful thinking, but it's about what a person has in his heart. And how is that seen through his actions?

00:45:15 --> 00:45:29

What are the contents of a Noel multiman cover. And certainly, you had wished for martyrdom before you had wished for death before the believers are being addressed that before the battle, all of you who are wishing for martyrdom,

00:45:30 --> 00:45:49

you were wishing for Shahada de manana for me munia domani, to wish to hope, the desire. So you're wishing for Shahada, he's a bit in the middle hobble before meaning before the actual battle until Kosovo, that you met it meaning before you actually met that. Until then, you were wishing for death

00:45:50 --> 00:45:54

until you actually met that. And how was that

00:45:55 --> 00:45:58

when their victory turned into defeat.

00:45:59 --> 00:46:32

Until that point, you were wishing for martyrdom for a demo that in fact, your side that was literally coming in your face when the enemy was attacking you and you were in a state of complete chaos, or until down the road, while you were watching. While you were looking. You were seeing that if you wanted it. And if you saw it, then how come you're feeling like this now? How come you feel so down? How come? Why is it so before you wanted to die? Now that your companions have died? You feel so bad.

00:46:33 --> 00:46:42

But you wanted that status before? You wanted that martyrdom before. And now that some of you got martyred, you wish that this hadn't happened?

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

So many times it happens with us that we want something in our lives. And when Allah Subhana Allah sends it our way. We don't want it anymore. We wish for it. We pray for it. But when it actually comes, and we sense that it's difficult, we don't want it anymore.

00:46:59 --> 00:47:05

The prophets are a lot of them said, none of you should wish for that, because of a calamity befalling him.

00:47:06 --> 00:47:07

Sometimes what do people do?

00:47:08 --> 00:47:12

They're in a difficult situation and they start praying predict that all of this can be done right now.

00:47:14 --> 00:47:32

But if he has to wish for that, he should say Oh, Allah keep me alive, as long as life is better for me, and let me die if death is better for me. So there were wishing for that. But from the Hadees, we learned that we should not wish for that a person should not ask for that, or ask for something that will cause his death.

00:47:34 --> 00:47:57

Similarly, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, do not wish to meet the enemy. But when you meet the enemy, then be patient. be steadfast. You were wishing to meet the enemy to face the enemy. And when you saw the enemy, when death was coming in your face, when Shahada was coming in your face, then you started to flee from the battlefield. Then you started to run away to save your life.

00:47:58 --> 00:48:00

Let's listen to the recitation of these ayat.

00:48:37 --> 00:48:40

Muni me

00:49:13 --> 00:49:15


00:49:17 --> 00:49:20


00:50:08 --> 00:50:09

So what do we learn from desire?

00:50:11 --> 00:50:42

Many times people caught this Iowa antimalarial owner in contempt, meaning that if we're believers, we will be victorious, we will be superior. And we're very proud of it, that we're believers, and we are going to be superior and we don't do what is required of us. If we are really believers, if we are truly believers, then we will be superior, then we will be successful. But if we don't fulfill the requirements of email, then why do we expect victory? Why do we expect success?

00:50:43 --> 00:51:15

And if we look at these, if, you know, the Muslims, they had suffered a great loss. And it was as though they were depressed. And Allah subhanaw taala is comforting them that it's okay, what's done is done. move on now. Because many times when people get depressed about what happened in the past, they cannot get over it. And because they cannot get over it, they cannot move on. What does this teach us? Don't stay in your past, live in the present and work for the future. live in the present and work for the future. Don't stay stuck in your past.

00:51:17 --> 00:51:34

And the defeated are what teaches us that we should be grateful for what we have and not take it for granted. Sometimes, when we have what we want, all the time, when we have it each time we want it, we don't value it. But when it's taken away from us, then we realize its importance.

00:51:35 --> 00:52:09

And every hardship is a blessing in disguise. There are always some benefits. There's always some wisdom behind the hardship that a believer goes through. And he will only realize that when you reflect upon it and when he learns from his mistakes, because many times things happen. We talk about them and we move on. We don't take a lesson from them. But this defeat happened. And look, so many verses are revealed that the believers take a lesson from it and don't just move on. No, take a lesson from it. Because if you don't take a lesson from what happens in your life, and how will you improve,

00:52:11 --> 00:52:33

and anything that you want to do in life, there will always be difficulties. Many times people wish to learn the Quran, they wish to help others learn the Quran. But what happens, there is difficulty, which is a promise of Allah, the believers, they were victorious. And by that initially everything was fine. And then they suffered or hurt the losses or hurt.

00:52:34 --> 00:52:54

So when we face these difficulties, we think that's it, I cannot do it. And we give up. What is the last thing over here? Let me know. Let us know. Don't lose your courage, don't lose your confidence, and do not grieve over what has happened. Whatever has happened has happened. move on now.

00:52:56 --> 00:53:00

And again, a person cannot just rely upon himself, he has to do the work.

00:53:01 --> 00:53:35

That that's one of the main lessons that we learned from the beginning of these verses that you do whatever you can you put in your effort, you do your best, but then you trust when the last time and when you trust upon Allah. If something goes wrong, if something doesn't go as you wanted it to go, then you don't have any grief, that you don't have any sense of loss. Then you are confident that this was the decision of Allah. This is what Allah wanted for me. And then you don't give up when you have to work with Allah and if you don't have to work or if you're doing the work call upon yourself, then you're going to give up then you're not going to be able to continue.

00:53:37 --> 00:53:43

It's a pinnacle moment. Lacombe Ambika Misha La Ilaha. illa Anta Mr. hirokawa to a ceremony
